About Digestive Aids & Probiotics 

Proper digestion  and absorption are two of the most important physiological functions in the body. If these processes are not working properly, optimal health cannot be maintained. Incomplete or disordered digestion can be a major contributor to the development of ill health. The problem can be two-fold:

(1) ingestion of foods and nutritional substances are of little benefit when breakdown and assimilation are inadequate

(2) incompletely digested food molecules can be inappropriately absorbed into the systemic circulation. This can lead to the development of food allergies and other associated disorders.

The digestive tract and its function may be the single most important body component determining health and disease. Maintaining normal digestion, absorption and elimination is a necessity. When these functions are faulty, we may not be aware that these dysfunctions are contributing to many other problems. The impaired digestion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates further contributes to impaired assimilation, nutritional deficiency problems as well as uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating and constipation.

Natural Botanicals and Digestive Enzymes are excellent aids to the digestive and absorptive processes. A number of digestive support supplements are available. 

Probiotics

There are around 500 species of bacteria living in our digestive tracts. Most of these are ‘friendly’ bacteria that have a mutually beneficial relationship with us, their hosts. However, the gut is also home to some pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria which, given the right conditions, can proliferate causing the delicate environment of the gut to be disrupted. The results can be digestive disturbances such as bloating, flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea. Friendly bacteria feed on fibre and in doing so, produce various organic acids that can alter the acidity level of the intestines, therefore controlling the spread of pathogenic bacteria. They also manufacture certain vitamins and aid the digestion of our food e.g. Lactose in milk products. It is therefore very important to ensure that the balance of intestinal bacteria is in favour of the ‘friendly’ strains, which can be achieved by eating an appropriate diet (low sugar) and supplementing with probiotics.

Solgar's probiotic products are usually combinations that include Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis. These two strains are found to dominate in different areas of the digestive tract and tolerate different conditions, but both are very important for its health and function. Such intestinal bacteria are easily destroyed by antibiotics and certain types of medication so supplementation allows us the opportunity to maintain good levels of ‘friendly’ bacteria and, therefore, good health. Probiotics can be taken during and after antibiotic treatment to aid recovery. Because supplementation will be required for different reasons and by different age groups, Solgar has a range to suit all ages and a variety of uses.

Solgar probiotics are carefully manufactured using the latest research and technology. All our bacteria are genetically ‘finger-printed’, tested for acid resilience and the ability to implant and multiply in the digestive tract. Many of the Solgar probiotics now use patented species of bacteria, shown in studies to be beneficial for human health and disease prevention. They also have a patented delivery system which ensures maximum survival of the bacteria through the acidic environment of the stomach. None of the Solgar probiotics require refrigeration before opening and for the Advanced range, refrigeration is optional even after breaking the seal.

The 100% potency guarantee to label expiry date, which covers all Solgar products,includes the probiotic supplements. With levels ranging from 500 million to 5 billion organisms per capsule, and with different combinations of strains, there is a product to suit everyone.
