A closer look at the ingredients used in Gut Support
Caprylic acid: A short chain fatty acid, also known as octanoic acid, caprylic acid is found naturally in human breast milk and coconuts and may support gut health.
Garlic powder: Allium sativum or garlic contains allicin, amino acids, volatile oils, B group vitamins, iodine, selenium, quercetin, beneficial sulphur compounds and other minerals.
Aloe vera: Aloe barbadensis is a spiky cactus-like plant of the lily family. Traditionally used for purposes of moisturising (i.e. in skin creams), aloe vera may also help to support the body’s natural detox systems and processes.
Cinnamon bark: Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume or cinnamon bark powder contains the active constituents tannins, essential oil and coumarin.
Quercetin: Closely related to rutin (one of several bioflavonoids that provide colour and taste to fruits and vegetables) and hesperidin, quercetin is fast becoming a superstar among the bioflavonoids (also referred to as vitamin P).
Beetroot: Beta vulgaris, or beetroot, is a vegetable that is naturally high in nitrates, silicic acids, flavonoids, antioxidants (anthocyanadins) and bioavailable vitamins and minerals. It is also naturally rich in alkaline elements, making it an ideal addition to cleanse and detox programmes.
Thyme: This aromatic herb contains active tannins, gum, flavonoids, volatile oil and caffeic acid.
Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotic: In Latin, ‘Lactobacillus acidophilus’ means acid-loving milk-bacterium. It is a species in the genus Lactobacillus and a type of probiotic or friendly bacteria / good bacteria, which occurs naturally in the gut. As a probiotic, Lactobacillus acidophilus may support a healthy balance of intestinal microflora, efficient digestion and a strong immune function.
Bifidobacteria probiotic: Bifidobacteria are one of the main types of friendly bacteria that make up the colon flora in humans. As with Lactobacillus acidophilus (see above), some bifidobacteria are used as probiotics and, as such, may support a healthy balance of intestinal microflora, efficient digestion and a strong immune system.
Cloves: A fragrant spice, Eugenia caryophyllus Spreng or cloves contain a heavy volatile oil, a camphor resin, flavonoids and sterols.
Grapefruit seed: Grapefruit seed extract, not to be confused with grapeseed extract, contains beneficial bioflavonoids including hesperidin.
Glucosamine: An amino sugar, glucosamine is one of the most abundant monosaccharides and a natural precursor of glycosaminoglycans. It occurs naturally in the body, where it plays a role in the efficient operation of joints and helps to maintain healthy connective tissue health.
Rosemary leaf: Rosmarinus officinalis or rosemary contains flavonoids, diterpenes, volatile oil and rosmarinic acid.
Oregano: True oregano (known by the botanical name Origanum vulgare) contains a number of active compounds, including carvacrol and thymol.
Zinc: An essential mineral, zinc is involved in cellular metabolism, enzyme activity, immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis and cell division.
