Let’s take a closer look at the natural remedies NATURALSALUS has specially created for such intestinal problems.
Abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, are intestinal disorders, meaning they affect the lower digestive tract. Such disturbances are often very unpleasant, sometimes even impeding us from carrying out our daily activities. Under normal circumstances, the proper functioning and health of our intestines are intertwined with the type of lifestyles we lead.
Most common intestinal disorders
When we talk about bowel disorders, we mean our intestines are not able to carry out their work at the regularly due time. Such disorders are often associated with unpleasant symptoms. The most common of these, tending to affect our intestines are:
- Stomach pains
- Abdominal cramping
- Abdominal bloating
- Sudden evacuations
On average, evacuations should occur no less than three times a week. Problems crop up when this regularity isn’t maintained, because our bodies need to eliminate excess waste in order to stay healthy. Ideally, this should occur naturally and painlessly given that it is part of our physiological processes.
The causes of intestinal decompensation:
The causes of intestinal decompensations may depend on several factors. The most common being:
- Not enough physical activity/sedentary lifestyles
- Poorly balanced diet, low in fibre
- Not enough fluid intake
- Pathological conditions, e.g. infections
Bowel problems and imbalances are more common amongst the elderly and females. Additionally, in particular situations intestinal disorders may occur as a symptom associated with more serious diseases such as diabetes or auto-immune disorders.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) usually manifests with abdominal pain, altered bowel functions that can cause either sudden evacuations or constipation, often accompanied by an unpleasant bloating sensation. Often occurring after meals, regardless of the type of food. Once again, women suffer from this disorder more frequently than men do.
Irritable bowel syndrome may be due to biological reasons, i.e. a person naturally has sensitive bowels. More commonly however, it is due to psychosocial reasons i.e. stemming from psychologically stressful situations. Even in such cases, choosing an appropriate lifestyle can help prevent the onset of this disorder, but success usually depends on the primary cause.
Our intestine and its physiological function.
Our intestine is an organ that resembles a tube with many folds inside of it and is divided into the small and the large intestine. With each one of the two tracts carrying out different functions. The small intestine, which is subdivided further into the duodenum, jejunum and ileum, is mainly responsible for reabsorbing food nutrients that are initially broken down in the mouth and then digested in the stomach. Whilst the large intestine reabsorbs any fluids found within it and eliminates excess waste. Peristaltic contraction perfectly synchronized by longitudinal and transverse musculature, transports all ingested food through the intestines. Various factors such as age, lifestyle, nutrition, etc. affect a person’s intestinal well-being and its regularity, which normally should be no less than three times per week.
Gut flora and the role it plays on our mental and physical health.
Gut flora plays a key role in the gut’s physiological function. Gut flora is made of different types of benevolent microorganisms, such as bacteria, yeasts and archaea, which colonize different parts of our intestines. With these microorganisms, we have a mutualistic relationship, that being, we mutually benefit from each other’s coexistence. We supply them food, we house them, and in exchange they help us to digest and absorb nutrients. In fact, several nutrient compounds such as vitamin B or K are primarily available due to metabolic activity of these microorganisms. The precise composition of the intestinal flora depends on several factors among which the most influential being the type of food we regularly consume. In fact, there are significant differences in the composition of the gut flora of vegetarians, vegans and omnivores. It has also been discovered that our tiny cohabitants play a significant influence on our emotional states as well. Due to the biochemical signals through which the gut flora, the gut and the brain communicate with each other i.e. the brain-gut-microbiota axis. Being able to affect our mood and mental health. All of these things should make us understand just how many different levels a gut flora imbalance can destabilize both our physical and mental state of health. Recent studies have shown that a gut flora imbalance can even facilitate the onset of various diseases such as diabetes or metabolic syndrome. In less severe cases, imbalanced intestinal flora causes stomach (painful or not) bloating. Adopting a more balanced diet and a healthier (physical and mental) lifestyle is therefore important in preventing the onset of such imbalances from occurring.
Ways to help the body with constipation and intestinal bloating.
We can help the body overcome constipation and intestinal bloating when it requires an immediate rebalancing solution, using a completely natural product created by NATURALSALUS to solve bowel disorders. DS1 / TERSUS has an innovative and effective formulation containing several plant extracts designed to naturally facilitate regularity and combat constipation. The presence of soluble fibres called FOS, derived from Chicory root, promotes the development of intestinal flora and stimulates bowel activity. In addition, FOS have a soothing effect on the intestinal mucosa. Freeze-dried Aloe Vera extract, rich in polysaccharides with probiotic functions promote digestion. In addition, Aloe is known for its anti-inflammatory and soothing action on the gastrointestinal tract. Papain is a so-called proteolytic enzyme, aiding digestion especially of protein-rich foods. Angelica has a relaxing action and thus counters intestinal spasms and bloating that are often linked with constipation. The presence of MSM, a natural source of organic sulphur plays a soothing role on the intestinal mucosa and promotes healing. Lapacho is a plant rich in naphthoquinones giving it an antimicrobial effect. Able to relieve bloating caused by fermentation in the intestines. In addition, it carries out a strengthening effect on the immune system. Finally, Grapefruit Seed extracts have additional antimicrobial actions and help to naturally preserve the product.
Colitis – Irritable bowel syndrome IBS
DS1 / TERSUS stimulates the body’s immune defences, which all start-off from gastrointestinal well-being and therefore essential for the body’s overall health. A phytotherapeutic combo of Aloe Vera, Papaya, Vegetable fibres, Tabebuia (Lapacho), Angelica and GSE (Grapefruit Seed extract) that is very useful in treating gastrointestinal disorders.25,90 € Add to cartView more
