Our Top Digestion Supplements
By Ellie Isom 1 month ago 7670 Views


The health of our digestive system is integral for our overall health and wellbeing. Choosing the right supplements, as well as consuming gut friendly foods, can be key to ensuring that our digestive health and overall feeling of wellbeing is maintained.

Here are the Clinical Nutrition Team’s favourite support supplements:

Live bacteria:

  • Everyday BioAcidophilus – contains 10 billion of the clinically-researched ‘LAB4’ combination per capsule, with two specific proprietary strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus along with Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis. They come in convenient 7 day strips, with no need for refrigeration, which means you can take them on the go - they can sit in your bag, on your desk at work, and you can take them with you when you travel.

Everyday BioAcidophilus

Intestinal support:

  • GI Complex – high strength, powdered complex containing vitamin A which supports the maintenance of mucous membranes such as those lining the digestive tract, vitamin C and E which contribute to the function of the immune system and protection of cells from oxidative stress, along with L-glutamine, N-acetyl glucosamine (NAG), whey protein, and live bacteria.

GI Complex

Gastric support:

  • Slippery Elm Intensive – high strength powder containing slippery elm with zinc, gamma oryzanol, licorice, marshmallow, and aloe vera. Slippery elm is a source of mucilage which supports mucous membranes and soothes the digestive tract. Zinc has a role in the process of cell division and protection of cells from oxidative stress, and licorice helps to maintain balance and comfort in the digestive system.

Slippery Elm Intensive

Enzymes:

  • Polyzyme Forte – high potency broad spectrum enzyme complex containing a combination of vegetable-derived enzymes such as bromelain, lipase, protease, amylase, cellulose, lactase, and maltase, with Lactobacillus acidophilus live bacteria. These enzymes can survive against the harsh pH of stomach acid. Digestive enzymes help to break down food, such as protein, carbohydrates and fat, into smaller particles ready for absorption.

Polyzyme Forte

Motility:

  • Psyllium Intensive – high strength powder combining LAB4 live bacteria with fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin, as well as psyllium husk fibre to support intestinal transit and function and the maintenance of a healthy bowel. It also provides prune, pectin, and burdock.
