4 strain probiotic for those travelling, or following a course of antibiotics
Probioguard® contains four carefully selected strains of friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium, Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp bulgaricus, which have been widely used in clinical studies. These species of bacteria are specially selected for use when travelling, as local cuisine can expose the gut to new challenges where different bacteria strains may be present and this can unsettle digestion.
Probioguard® is suitable for:
People considering travelling abroad
People who have used a course of antibiotics
People with regular bloating problems or on-going digestive disturbances.
This product is stored in refrigerated conditions until despatch to ensure maximum potency. The special pot also contains an inbuilt desiccant, as viability of probiotics is largely determined by the moisture content of the atmosphere surrounding the capsules.
A natural Prebiotic that encourages the growth of friendly bacteria in the bowel.
Eliminex® consists of a special carbohydrate called Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), a form of soluble fibre, which is found in many vegetables such as chicory and onions. When you take Eliminex® the FOS passes through your digestive system undigested until it reaches your bowel where the friendly bacteria use it as a food source. The result is a rapid growth in the ‘friendly’ bacteria, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species. This is what is called the ‘prebiotic’ effect, and as the friendly beneficial bacteria multiply, the harmful pathogenic bacteria and yeasts are suppressed. This leads to better bowel tone, more regular movements and a reduction in digestive ‘upsets’.
After just 2 weeks of taking 8g of Eliminex® daily, research has shown that FOS can significantly increase the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut by up to 10 times. This is why many researchers working in this area believe that prebiotic products are greatly undervalued compared to the popularity of probiotics.
These capsules contain a concentrated fish oil which provides a full 700mg of Omega 3’s per capsule, (many 1000mg fish oil products contain just 350mg of Omega 3’s). This means that this product is one of the strongest available in the UK and is therefore widely recommended by practitioners. The fish oil undergoes a sophisticated purification process that ensures it is largely odour free, with levels of contaminants well below the strict EU maximum limits. The oil is then protected from oxidation while it is in the capsules by the inclusion of natural vitamin E.
The most beneficial ingredients in fish oil are the two Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Research has shown that Omegas 3’s play a vitally important part in maintaining our health and wellbeing and it is for this reason that fish oil supplements are regularly recommended by practitioners.
The official recommendation by the DoH is that people should consume two portions of oily fish per week to obtain sufficient Omega 3’s. This is good advice but one that is followed by relatively few people, and so the use of fish oil supplements is the best option for many.
Daily intake: 1 to 3 capsules
Under normal circumstances there is a carefully controlled balance of yeasts and bacteria in our digestive system that acts to maintain health. One of these organisms is a type of yeast termed Candida albicans and is generally no problem to us. However, under certain conditions including antibiotic use, the contraceptive pill and diets high in sugar, uncontrolled overgrowth of this yeast occurs resulting in candidiasis (often simply referred to as candida). This may affect the entire body and can result in a wide range of symptoms including bloating, food intolerance, Athlete’s food, headaches and eczema.
Most practitioners generally recommend a change in diet that excludes yeast and sugar, along with a supplement programme designed to help readdress the balance in the digestive tract, and heal the gut, as well as support the immune system.
So we are delighted to introduce Candaway® to the Lamberts® range. This unique, high potency formula, contains a natural complex of herbs and spices that may help to maintain a healthy balance in the digestive tract. It includes cinnamon bark in combination with olive leaf, fennel seed and oregano.
