Product Review: Digestive Health Boost
If you've never had trouble with your digestion... do not take that for granted!! It is an amazing gift to have a properly functioning digestive system.
In that case, though, you can probably just stop reading now, since this product won't do much for you that your body isn't already doing for itself. Keep this in mind, though, should you ever run into problems in this area in the future...
For everyone else, I recommend to you Digestive Health Boost. Probiotics and fiber are two major pieces of the puzzle when it comes to healthy digestion. For probiotics I use Shakeology; Digestive Health Boost addresses the fiber piece.
Digestive Health Boost contains a combination of soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, so it can help solve problems at both extremes—either diarrhea or constipation. (For future reference, insoluble fiber moves through you and soluble fiber stops you up. Both types of fiber have the effect of pulling water into the intestines, so make sure you drink plenty of water as you increase your fiber intake.) In particular, my customers tell me this product reduces their heartburn compared to fiber supplements that are sold in the over-the-counter drug aisle.
The balance of fiber (7 grams per scoop) is obtained through these ingredients (and this is ALL this supplement contains):
FLAXSEED POWDER - Y'all know these things have health benefits beyond their fiber content! They are a significant source of omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, calcium, and protein.
CHIA SEED POWDER - These are also a potent source of heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids, as well as lignans, a powerful type of antioxidant.
PSYLLIUM HUSK POWDER comes from the seed of a plant primarily grown in northern India. The fiber it contains acts as a prebiotic, supplying a food source for the probiotics (which you are hopefully also consuming) to proliferate.
PEA FIBER - Although a benefit of fiber in general is that it's a "bulky" (high-volume, low-calorie) food that helps you feel full and can therefore prevent you from overconsuming higher-calorie foods, pea fiber specifically has been shown in studies to help obese adults reduce their weight and also improve their insulin sensitivity.
CHICORY ROOT FIBER comes from the root of a flowering herb. It is another prebiotic that promotes a healthy gut microbiome and helps to lower cholesterol.
