Herbalife Digestive Health

When trying to improve your digestive health, the key, and most important thing is to increase the number of good bacteria that reside in your intestines. There are always good and bad bacteria living there and whenever the bad bacteria can increase in numbers you put your health at risk.

This dangerous bacteria can be kept at bay if they remain in low numbers. But if they increase can cause many serious problems in your body, such as reducing your immune system’s ability to protect against such dangers as Candida Albicans (yeast overgrowth) infections, fungus and the inability for your body to absorb the nutrients it needs which can cause deficiencies that can lead to many other problems.

Herbalife Digestive Health

The Herbalife digestion health system involves several products but the key one is called Flora Fiber. Besides including blend of dietary fibers, they have added one of the most beneficial bacteria that has been identified as Lactobacillus Acidolphilus. You may recognize it from some of the probiotic yogurt products.

People take probiotic supplements such as these to increase the amount of good gut bacteria, giving it a chance to dominate over the bad bacteria which is exactly the key to increase digestive health. Science has now proven that prebiotic fiber provides the needed support for the good gut bacteria to thrive and grow.

Having extra fiber in your diet is one of the most important things you can do. Dietary fiber helps your body to absorb more nutrients from the food you eat and plays the important role of eliminating your body’s waste and feeding the good bacteria in your intestines as well as inhibiting the dangerous bacteria growth. Very important stuff indeed!

As advocates and researchers of good health and natural health products we know that Herbalife is a large company with many different products aimed at a wide variety of health problems from weight loss to skin products.

Upon a closer look we were shocked to read the list of ingredients for the Hebalife digestive health product specifically, Flora Fiber which contains hydrogenated vegetable oils! This is a common and typical example of a company that just doesn’t “get it”.

Hydrogenated, and partially hydrogenated oils are one of the most dangerous things we find in processed foods and is what you should be eliminating completely from you diet. These oils are were we get the dangerous trans fats which work to clog the arteries, liver, and colon. They increase the risk of strokes and heart attacks and have been banned in almost every country except the United States.

In this day and age, knowing the proven dangers of hydrogenated oils it’s shocking that a company as big as Herbalife still uses these not only unhealthy oils and fats, but dangerous substances in a product they promote for digestive health.

Real natural health products

There are a few companies who do “get it” and when we find them it’s worth raving about them because they are a real minority in this huge supplement market made up mostly of companies only interested in the bottom line dollar and not their customer’s health.

Maxalife – a natural supplement company

Maxalife from New Zealand is one such company. A family run business that only uses 100% natural ingredients in all their products. One of their newest products was created for increasing digestive health and is a prebiotic digestive supplement called MX Kiwi Biotic.

Unlike Herbalife’s Flora Fiber products, Kiwi Biotic is made entirely from the nutrient-dense kiwifruit and contains no other unnatural ingredients, certainly not hydrogenated vegetable oils!

Kiwi Biotic stands above every other digestive health supplement we’ve found because of the extraction process used by Maxalife. This process uses only water and involves no high heat and chemicals like other manufacturers use. It’s these high heating techniques that kill most of the enzymes from the natural food sources, leaving most other products to be much more inferior and less potent.

Besides good amount of digestive enzymes, Kiwi Biotic has the powerful prebiotic nutrient known as soluble fiber. This is the dietary fiber most responsible for supporting the probiotic bacteria in your intestines and help to increase the balance of the friendly flora that is necessary for good digestive health.
