The Good Guru "Organic DigestKare" Digestive Support Supplements
The digestive tract goes through a huge amount of processing. The food and drink that we eat enter the mouth and it is from this moment till excretion that the body is processing all of the items we ingest. We have saliva within the mouth which have enzymatic juices which start the process of digestion. This is continued further through the oesophagus, into the stomach, small and large intestine. When we have an abundance of acid or an acid imbalance and not enough alkaline foods and drink, the body can be disrupted and this is when we can experience acid reflux, bloating, pain, nausea and a whole host of complaints.
The Formula and its benefits
Fenugreek seeds have been studied for their amazing benefits within the stomach. They protect the stomach from acid reflux and stomach infections that are brought on by bacteria. Fenugreek produces a gel-like substance that has significant protective effects against these conditions.
On the plus side, too little acid is harmful as we need stomach acid to kill harmful bacteria from foods, and low gastric acid can leave the body open to many diseases and health complaints.
Fenugreek also has lots of fibre and its ability to slow down the absorption of carbohydrates and sugar is an added benefit as these foods also contribute to acid reflux/ digestive disorders.
There is 400mg of Shiitake Mushrooms in our blend. Shiitake Mushrooms contain large amounts of fibre per gram which helps to flush out the digestive system, ridding it of most toxins, this, in turn, helps relieve constipation. The mushroom also contains all eight essential amino acids and linoleic acid which is essential for improving the digestive tract.
Cinnamon is great for the gut, not just the taste buds! When the breakdown of food continues in the digestive tract, gases are naturally produced. Whilst gases are natural and exactly what should happen, an excess is strongly linked to different types of gastrointestinal disorders. Pepsin is a main digestive enzyme and through the use of Cinnamon, it can help decrease stomach acid produced. Cinnamon also cools down the stomach which helps the overall health of the stomach. Cinnamon in its own right has anti-inflammatory antioxidant properties all contributing to a healthier supported digestive tract.
Ginger is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, in addition, Ginger is great for gastrointestinal disorders. The anti-inflammatory properties help with inflammation caused by low stomach acid.
Black Pepper is known for its ability to flavour food; however, it has a much greater profile. Black pepper can not only speed up the metabolism which is great as a contributing factor to weight loss, but it also eases digestion and has a stimulating effect on the stomach enzymes affecting the proteins in food. In addition, black pepper is a good tonic for getting rid of toxins and helps relieve gas and bloating.
