Which Gut Product Is Right For Me?
Digestive symptoms can – quite literally – be a pain in the gut. And so can choosing the right product to help with your own unique set of symptoms. From indigestion and burping, to bloating and excess gas, symptoms can reflect problems at any of the stages along the digestive tract, and identifying what’s going wrong isn’t easy.
You can think about the digestive tract as being one long twisting tube (approximately 30 feet) that extends from the mouth, along the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, and then to the large intestine (also known as the colon or bowel), the rectum and anus. Your digestive system performs amazing feats several times a day helping to swallow and digest our food, absorb nutrients and eliminate waste; given its size and complexity, is it any wonder that most of us experience digestive problems at some stage of our lives? And for some of us, those problems can be persistent and even debilitating.
However what we know in the Nutrition Team, after supporting people with their digestive health for four decades now, are the products that are likely to make the most difference to sufferers of every day digestive discomfort: Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics. Here are the Team’s 3 products of choice from our extensive Digestive Health range that make the biggest different for the majority of people.
Similase is a digestive enzyme formula suitable for adults and children from the age of 1. It contains 8 different enzymes to help break down protein, carbohydrates and fat in the food we eat. Enzymes are produced by our bodies and secreted into the digestion system. However, for a number of reasons, our enzyme activity may not be adequate, and as a result, the breakdown of food and the absorption of vital nutrients may be compromised, leading to burping, bloating, discomfort and excess gas. Similase is easy to take alongside a meal to help support the body’s own natural enzymes to do their job, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Ultra Probioplex™ ND is a high potency probiotic formula, providing 15 billion live bacteria per capsule from two of the most well researched strains, Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM® and Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07.

Any changes to this balance can cause problems with gas build up and abdominal bloating, as well as changes to bowel habits.
