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.
Aloe Vera tablets provide 50mg of concentrated extract equivalent to 10,000mg of fresh aloe vera juice, making this one of the strongest aloe vera supplements available.
A huge industry has been established for the growing of aloe plants and the extraction of the juice and the precious gel from the leaves. Aloe vera is now popular in skin creams where it is used to cool and soothe the skin, but there has also been a lot of research on taking the gel orally, which has led to millions of people drinking aloe vera juice every day. This is because it is believed to help maintain a healthy digestive system. However, proper aloe vera juice has an unpleasant bitter taste which is why we think tablets are a more convenient way to take aloe vera. It also means we can guarantee the potency of the ingredients, whereas liquids are very variable in strength, do not store well and are often heavily diluted so that the bitter taste is not apparent. And the liquids often have gelling compounds to make them look thicker, plus lots of flavouring and preservatives!

Glutamine is considered a non-essential amino acid because it can be derived from glutamic acid, another member of the amino acid family. Both glutamine and glutamic acid can be found in protein-rich foods such as red meat, nuts and fish.
Glutamine is particularly important for the health of the gut with the cells of the gut lining obtaining much of their growth material through utilising glutamine as a fuel. This is why, out of the 20 amino acids, glutamine, is often referred to as the ‘gut restorer’ amongst practitioners and is frequently recommended when the integrity of the gut wall is compromised, as is often the case in conditions caused by microflora imbalances and some chronic conditions associated with poor gut function.
It is also often used for sports recovery since large quantities of glutamine are stored in our muscles where it plays an important role in repairing and building new muscle. Heavy training can deplete our glutamine stores so a supplement
