Ultimate FloraFx is our specialty product of choice when it comes to supporting digestive health. The widespread use of antibiotics, the common addiction to caffeine and sugar and increased reliance on fast and processed foods all adds up to an unrelenting attack on the good bacteria the flora and fauna in our lower gut. 70% of our immune system is located in the gut so laying siege to the gut also means compromising our ability to resist and defeat dangerous pathogens. The best way to restore the upper hand, to really clean house is to crowd out the overgrowth of un-friendly bacteria by cultivating colonies of good bacteria. And this is done most effectively when we combine the good bacteria (pro-biotics) with a “pre-biotic” food that the good bacteria loves to feast on. And that is exactly what makes the Ultimate FloraFx so special. It contains glucono delta lactone (GDL) a sort of “steak dinner for our friends in the good bacteria department!*
Any nutritional strategy is doomed to failure if one’s digestive system is compromised. After all, we rely on our digestive system to, well, “digest” not only food and food stuffs but also the nutrition in supplements. That is why it is so important to take care of the health of our lower intestines, exactly the realm where so much digestion occurs. Avoiding gluten containing grain (wheat, oats, barley, rye) can also go a long way in enhancing digestion.
