Diarrhea

Maintaining the health of the colon and small intestine is essential for optimum health.  A healthy colon and intestine allows for proper digestion of food and absorption of nutrients that the body needs for healthy functioning.  There are many causes of diarrhea, and although most of them are not an indication of a serious health issue, it is important to rule this out if it is an ongoing problem.  Diarrhea can be caused by viruses, food sensitivities, medication side-effects, exposure to bacteria or parasites when travelling, or more serious health concerns such as IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, Celiac or Diverticulitis. + Read more >

  Whether the cause of the diarrhea is a transient and simple such as a virus, or a long-term health condition, there are diarrhea supplements available that can help you manage the symptoms.  Maintaining the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut is one of the first, and easiest, steps to take in treating and preventing diarrhea.  Taking probiotic supplements can help restore the balance of beneficial bacteria that is upset with exposure to antibiotics, alcohol, smoking, and highly processed foods.  Probiotics also help to limit harmful bacteria and boost the immune system.  The probiotic Saccharomyces boulardii in particular has been shown in studies to reduce symptoms of acute gastroenteritis in both adults and children.  When an attack of diarrhea happens, one diarrhea supplement that can help in heal the intestinal tract and reduce the discomfort that accompanies diarrhea is Aloe Vera juice.  Herbal diarrhea supplements containing blackberry leaf and raspberry leaf are helpful because they alleviate diarrhea by drying out mucous membranes lining the gastrointestinal tract.  Peppermint oil is an herbal diarrhea supplement that is effective in reducing the abdominal pain that is often associated with diarrhea, particularly in cases where it is caused by chronic health conditions.  It is thought to relax the muscles of the gut, which reduces the muscle spasms that cause the abdominal pain.  Another herbal diarrhea supplement used to treat and prevent diarrhea on a more long-term basis is slippery elm.  Slippery elm helps to calm irritation by coating thee lining of the digestive system and can add bulk to the stool, helping to ease diarrhea.  Astragalus has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, making it a useful diarrhea supplement when treating diarrhea caused by a virus or bacteria.  It raises the levels of white blood cells, supports the immune system and raises the levels of natural antibodies found in the blood stream.  In addition to taking diarrhea supplements to treat the cause of the diarrhea and reduce the symptoms, it is also important to remember to drink electrolyte supplement drinks to replace the fluids and electrolytes that are being depleted.  Body Energy Club’s online vitamin and supplement store is your source for quality products to treat and prevent diarrhea and restore your intestinal health to its optimal level.  Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure that they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications. + Read less >

  • Natural Factors Super Strength Cal'dophilus Probiotic

    Natural Factors Super Strength Cal'dophilus Probiotic

    L. rhamnosus is probably the most important probiotic strain for health of the mouth to the small intestine. It protects by coating the mucus, preventing toxins from reaching the blood. It even results in better smelling breath. L. rhamnosus survives temperature extremes and is resistant to bile salts and stomach acid, ferments 23 sugars and inhibits negative bacteria and yeast growth. It is hardier and keeps better without refrigeration.  Compared to L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus is 8 to 10 times more prolific, has a larger spectrum of sugar fermentation (important for people with milk sugar intolerance), has better control over putrefactive microbes, and is more effective at inhibiting disease-causing pathogens.  L. acidophilus produces lactic acid which keeps a proper pH balance in the small intestine, inhibiting yeast growth. Studies have show that L. acidophilus is effective in reducing lactose intolerance, inhibiting undesirable organisms in the intestine, reducing cholesterol levels and controlling diarrhea.  L. casei ferments large numbers of carbohydrates, is effective in the treatment of intestinal infections, inhibits tumours in mice, and increases immunity in humans against bacterial and viral infections.  B. longum is effective against putrefactive and pathogenic bacteria. It has anticarcinogenic activity, deconjugates bile salts, helps to synthesize some of the B complex vitamins and may lower the content of serum cholesterol. FOS (fructooligosaccharides) are short-chained indigestible sugars found in chicory. They increase the amount of healthy bacteria in the colon. As they are indigestible, they pass through the small intestine into the colon intact where friendly bacteria feed on them and multiply. FOS is often referred to as a prebiotic and is the ideal addition to a probiotic product as they keep healthy amounts of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract.

  • Natural Factors Ultimate Multi Probiotic

    Natural Factors Ultimate Multi Probiotic

    With the burgeoning research into the benefits of probiotics, Ultimate Multi Probiotic provides a powerful multi strain probiotic formula based on the latest current research. It is a 12 strains blend formula with a minimum of 12 billion live cells at expiry date (18 billion live cells per capsule at the time of manufacture). These 12 strains include 8 Lactobacilli species and one Lactococcus species for the ultimate health of the full length of the small intestine as well as 3 Bifidobacteria species for the ultimate health of the complete length of the large intestine. Different species in a single formula more closely approximates the normal composition of intestinal flora. As probiotic properties are different from one strain to the other, each strain will contribute specific inhibitive functions against pathogenic or putrefactive bacteria. Multi strain probiotic formulations are also recommended because each person's intestinal flora has a unique bacterial community (very similar to fingerprints), therefore each person will react differently to the absorption of the same probiotic strain. For some people L. acidophilus might be most effective while for others L. rhamnosus. L. casei might adapt more easily to their intestinal flora. Each strain in the Ultimate Multi Probiotic has undergone a stringent selection process (e.g. Our L. acidophilus was chosen after studying the probiotic properties of 95 different L. acidophilus strains.) Each strain has been carefully selected for natural gastric resistance. Testing each strain shows no loss of bacteria after 3 hours at 370 in gastric solutions at pH3/pH4. The natural pH of an empty stomach is 1.5. After eating stomach's pH goes up to 5-6. This is critical, as these strains will survive the stomach's acidity without enteric coating and reach the intestines at full potency. Each strain has been selected for its ability to grow in the presence of high bile levels. High growth in the presence of bile also maximizes probiotic potency. Antibiotic compatibility is also important. Strains are chosen so they do not interfere with the effectiveness of antibiotics but still protect from their adverse effects. Probiotics also have been selected for established enzymatic activities. Lactic acid bacteria induce a variety of enzymatic activities that generate multiple additional health benefits. By doing so they may help to prevent several conditions: lactose intolerance, infectious diseases, urogenital and vaginal diseases and immune system deficiencies.
