What the Research Says
Sometimes our digestion needs an extra helping hand, and our Gut Pack is here to do just that.
The Personalised Co Gut Pack contains a blend of enzymes and live friendly bacteria to help support optimal gut health and digestion.
Research has shown that:
- Digestive enzymes help the body in breaking down and digesting the food we eat.
- Live friendly bacteria help to balance your gut's microbiome.
- Saccharomyces boulardii is a type of live bacteria which helps to increase levels of 'good' bacteria in the gut.
- Betaine hydrochloride helps in creating an ideal environment for digestion of foods by balancing your stomach's pH.
What the Nutritionist says
Taking care of your gut is essential for overall health and wellbeing - not just digestion. For example, research now shows that 80% of our immune system is located in the gut.
How It Helps
Enzyme supplementation plays an integral role in the management of various digestive disorders and people with poor digestion. Plant-based enzymes, such as bromelain from pineapple, serve as effective digestive aids in the breakdown of proteins particularly.
A meta-analysis of 20 randomised control trials including 1404 subjects found an improvement in IBS symtpoms with administartion of friendly bacteria. Although the exact mechanisms of how these mighty bacteria work is still being studied, the proposed mechanisms of actions include stablisation the intestinal barrier function as well as decreasing gut inflammatory markers.
A randomised, unblinded controlled trial on the effect of 6 week treatment with lactobacillus rhamnossus in 123 patients with IBS. Patients were required to complete on a weekly basis the IBS severity score system and IBS quality of life questionnaires. The probiotic strain was efficacious at alleviating IBS symptoms.
Betaine hydrochloride effectively increases the amount of hydrochloric acid that is found in the stomach, thereby lowering the pH levels and creating an ideal environment for digestion of foods.
