KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Digestive or gut issues affect people around the world. Around 40% of people have at least one digestive symptom at any one time, according to Dr Anton Emmanuel, consultant gastroenterologist at University College Hospital in London.
Many things can lead to occasional digestive discomfort – stress, a genetic disposition, food sensitivities, a high-sugar diet, inflammation from over-the-counter or prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or communication issues between your gut and brain. Women are up to six times more likely to experience gut distress.
1. Fermented Ginger - The Lowdown
Fermented Ginger takes regular ginger to a new level for gastrointestinal comfort. With the fermentation process, ginger becomes more bioavailable and effective to help relieve digestive complaints.
If your gut microbial balance is less than ideal, or if you have occasional GI discomfort or other digestive issues, having the ginger fermented or “prepared” for you in advance can be a real plus.
2. Perilla Leaves - Benegut®
And this brings us to the second special botanical ingredient in this formula.
The Perilla frutescens plant, also known as Perilla leaf or Shiso, has been used traditionally to support the normal function of the respiratory tract and the immune system. Recent research shows it’s also particularly effective for supporting gastrointestinal health.
A scientifically proven proprietary standardised extract of its leaves – called Benegut® - is now available.
Not only is Benegut® a high-quality, sustainable, wholesome food ingredient, it’s a botanical that offers exciting promise for those seeking an effective pharmaceutical, drug-free solution for their gut issues.
Human in vitro and ex vivo studies show Benegut®:
And its mode of action? Benegut® appears to interact with your neurological system and counteract the effects of stress and other psycho-social factors via your gut-brain axis.
Dr Mercola references a 4-week study, in which 80 percent of subjects who took Benegut® Perilla extract reported substantial improvement of gastrointestinal discomfort. In this study, Perilla was most effective in reducing bloating and abdominal discomfort in women.
