DIGESTIVE HEALTH

Healthy digestion is so important, yet often taken for granted - until something goes wrong.

Whether it's constipation, stomach-aches, diarrhoea, gas, bloating, nausea or vomiting, gastrointestinal woes can wreck havoc on your life.

Our digestive system includes various organs with specific roles in digestion. The digestive system is responsible for the breakdown and absorption of vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients from food.

"Interesting fact is that during a 75-year life our intestines process about 30 tons of food and 50 000 l of liquids."

Therefore, the maintenance of a healthy digestive system is an important factor in maintaining overall health.

At the same time, a healthy digestive system significantly reduces the likelihood of digestive disorders such as constipation, bloating, diarrhoea and facilitates regular elimination of waste substances from the body.

The digestive system is home to large number of good as well as potentially bad bacteria. Improving the balance of these bacteria, also supports healthy digestion as well as many other health benefits.

Good bacteria provide many health benefits and this is why Lax-ease contains the prebiotic Inulin.

Benefits of Inulin

Inulin stimulates these bacteria to grow and aids digestion by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut, particularly Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. These bacteria help:

  • fend off unwanted pathogens (bad bacteria)

  • prevent infection

  • stimulate your immune system

Inulin also adds bulk to your stool and increases the frequency of your bowel movements. You may have more bowel movements, but inulin slows overall digestion. This enables your body to better absorb nutrients from the food you eat.
