Natural Factors Natural Factors B... from $10.00
Supports normal digestion As we age, the production of stomach acid declines, which reduces the efficiency of digestion and nutrient absorption. Natural Factors Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek supports normal digestion and acts as an effective digestive aid by stimulating the secretion of pancreatic enzymes and reducing gastric inflammation.   Uses & Benefits  Increases stomach acid to properly break down food Enhances digestive function Cholesterol support Reduces gastric inflammation Medicinal Ingredients Each Capsule Contains: Betaine Hydrochloride 500 mg Fenugreek Seed 100 mg Non-Medicinal IngredientsVegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant), silica. Feature Summary   Betaine hydrochloride increases the level of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach necessary for proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients from food. HCl assists in the complete digestion of protein by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes, renders the stomach sterile against orally ingested pathogens, prevents bacterial or fungal overgrowth of the small intestine, and facilitates the absorption of many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.In the absence of adequate HCl, poor digestion can arise leading to a range of digestive symptoms, such as bloating, belching, indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation. Betaine hydrochloride helps restore the proper acid levels in the stomach and maintain healthy gastrointestinal function. Taking betaine hydrochloride prior to or during meals can help kick-start the digestive process and help the body digest and break down foods.Fenugreek seeds help soothe the gastrointestinal tract by providing mucilage to calm down inflammation by coating the lining of the stomach and intestines. Natural Factors Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek supports normal digestion and helps alleviate any symptoms of digestive insufficiency.   Recommended use Supports healthy digestion. Recommended dose Recommended adult dose: 2 capsules at meal times, 3 times daily, or as directed by a health care practitioner. Keep out of reach of children. Cautions Keep out of the reach of children.

Genestra Genestra HMF Fort... from $34.00
Supports intestinal health in adults and children •    Provides live microorganisms that temporarily modify gut flora•    Provides 20 billion CFU per daily dose from: Lactobacillus acidophilus (CUL-60), Lactobacillus acidophilus (CUL-21), Bifidobacterium bifidum (CUL-20), Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis (CUL-34)   Dairy FreeGluten FreeVegan HMF Forte is a combination of four strains of proprietary human-sourced probiotics that help promote gastrointestinal health in adults and children. Supplementation with large numbers of a combination of microorganisms will help maximize intestinal colonization, promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.1 In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 22 adults, daily supplementation with a probiotic containing Lactobacillus acidophilus (CUL-60 and CUL-21) stimulated the restoration of microflora after it was altered by antibiotics.2 Likewise, research also demonstrates that a probiotic supplement containing CUL-21 can significantly colonize the gut of healthy adults.3 Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria are the most commonly used probiotics, and are safe for both adults and children.4 They successfully colonize the intestines, increase the release of antimicrobial peptides from host cells, and decrease the proliferation of pathogens.4 Probiotics also control the permeability of epithelial cells by mediating tight junction formation, and prevent pathogenic adherence to cells by increasing mucin release on the intestinal surface.4 EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS/ CHAQUE CAPSULE CONTIENT: Probiotic Consortium/ Consortium probiotique. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 billion CFU/ milliards d'UFC Lactobacillus acidophilus (CUL-60 & CUL-21). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8 billion CFU/ milliards d'UFC Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis (CUL-34) & Bifidobacterium bifidum (CUL-20). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 billion CFU/ milliards d'UFC Recommended Dose: Adults, Adolescents and Children (6 years and older): Take 1 capsule 2 times daily with meals, at least 2 to 3 hours before or after taking antibiotics, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

Trophic Trophic Digest Ai... $14.00
Digest Aid — Bile SaltsTrophic Digest Aid helps the body soothe irritations of the gastrointestinal tract and aids in the proper absorption and utilization of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. It prevents indigestion, nausea and flatulence when taken with meals and is effective in promoting healthy gallbladder function. It contains bile extract and three digestive enzymes, lipase, trypsin and bromelain. The herbs chamomile and goldenseal and the mineral charcoal have been added to further aid the digestive process. In the formula, lipase splits fats into two compounds: glycerin and fatty acids. Tryspin and bromelain are powerful protecolytic enzymes that digest proteins more rapidly and completely than pepsin. Goldenseal is traditionally used to soothe the mucous membranes of the digestive tract and aids with difficult digestion and dyspepsia. Bile salts are concentrated in the liver and excreted throughout the bile duct into the duodenum. There, they play an essential role in the digestion of fat.

Innotech Nutrition Innotech Nutritio... from $28.00 $31.00
Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic is a tangy, invigorating beverage of organic black strap molasses infused with a unique herbal tea fermented with 10 bio-active probiotic cultures at 3.5 pH making it the functional pro-biotic for maintaining good flora. Whether you like to mix it with water or juice, or drink it neat in a glass, 1-2 tbsp (15-30 mL) is all you need for 3-6 billion CFUs. After opening, refrigerate and consume within one month. Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ is a premium triple fermented food beverage which contains beneficial microbes that are essential for maintaining balanced micro-flora in your gastrointestinal tract. Having a healthy microbiome (healthy gut) promotes regularity, improves nutrient absorption and aids in digestion. Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ leverages an artisan blend of herbs, organic black strap molasses, and a recipe developed by probiotic pioneers over the last 20 years. Our 10 complementary probiotic strains were carefully chosen to provide a varied and broad-spectrum benefit and include L. acidophilus, L. casei, Bifidobacterium and more. Because of the complex flavours that occur from our ingredients and hand-crafted brewing, the taste of Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ is beautifully unique. Some describe it as tangy and reminiscent of an unsweetened apple cider with a delightful molasses aftertaste (all the sugars in the molasses have been fermented to 0 g in the resulting product). If you’re looking for a probiotic product that you can drink that has no dairy and 0 sugar, this is a great brand to try. People simply love Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™. Did you know?What truly defines a high quality brand is how many different bacterial strains are working together and are bio-available to provide as many benefits as possible. Other microbial products focus on the number of “CFUs” (“Colony Forming Units”). There’s a strong debate that supplements with hundreds of billions of active cultures are overkill and unnecessary. Guess what? You won’t need to drink a lot of Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ each day because each ounce gives you more than 6 billion CFUs comprised of 10 complementary probiotic strains (Bacteria that work together). Shelf-Stable As It’s Naturally PreservedInnotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ is naturally preserved as we let the triple-fermentation process continue until the pH level of the drink is low enough to reduce microbial activity (that is, the probiotics go dormant). Still, excessive heat can cause the bacteria to kick off another fermentation process which can create some CO2 in the bottle. That’s why we recommend before opening, Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ should be kept in a dark place (avoid sunlight) at a constant temperature preferably below 21°C. Also, it can be stored for a period of at least 12 months after production (see best before date on bottle) though. Drink it Cold and Refrigerate Upon OpeningAfter opening, Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ needs to be stored in a dark and cool place below 8°C so in a fridge is best. Sediment can form at the bottom of the bottle so it’s fine to shake it gently before consuming. For the best drinking experience have it really cold! And for best quality try to finish the bottle within about a month of opening. What’s in Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ and How’s It Made?These ingredients undergo a hand-crafted triple fermentation process that creates a light amber coloured drink with these properties: 10 complementary probiotic strains that work together harmoniously a broad-spectrum of species including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium active aerobic and anaerobic bacterial cultures naturally preserved due to a low pH level living product resulting in minor taste variations from batch to batch. With every 2 tablespoons or 1 oz of Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™, you get over 6 billion bio-available CFUs of: Bifidobacterium animalis, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis, Lactococcus lactis subs. lactis biovar. diacetylactis, Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides, Streptococcus thermophiles. As the triple-fermentation of Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ occurs over the course of about one month, the bacteria consume virtually all the food we give them. This means that in the final fermented product there are only very trace amounts of these 20 beneficial herbs: Angelica (angelica archangelica), Anise (pimpinella anisum), Basil (ocimum basilicum), Chamomile (matricaria recutita), Chervil (anthriscus cerefolium), Dill (anethum graveolens), Elderberry (sambucus nigra), Fennel (foeniculum vulgare), Fenugreek (trigonella foenum-graecum), Ginger Root (zingiber officinale), Juniper (juniperus communis), Liquorice Root (glycyrrhiza glabra), Nettle (urtica dioica), Oregano (origanum vulgare), Parsley (petroselinum crispum), Peppermint (mentha piperita), Rosemary (rosmarinus officinalis), Sage (salvia officinalis), Thyme (thymus vulgaris) Beet root, Stevia Extract. Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ is vegan friendly, gluten, GMO and soy free.Despite being made from black strap organic molasses, the triple-fermentation process actually converts almost all the sugars so that the final drink has 0 g (zero grams) of sugar per serving. So what’s great is that when you drink Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™, you get a whole lot (6 billion CFU) of probiotic bacteria and essentially nothing else. That means that this artisan probiotic beverage is vegan, gluten and soy free. Also, unlike pills and powders, there’s no need for a protective coating for Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ to reach your intestines. Because the pH level is already similar to your stomach acid, our microbes don’t go through a “shock” and are able to cope with the harsh environment of the gastrointestinal tract. Why These Ingredients?These Probiotic Strains were chosen carefully and gradually over 15 years of in-field experience combined with in-lab analysis, love and patience. It wasn’t enough for us to simply say “Acidophilus is a probiotic so let’s pick a strain and put it in our drink.” Instead, we had to consider what other subspecies of good gut bacteria were commonly found in healthy animals (people included) and which specific strains would work best together. Answering this second question is part of the necessary magic to be considered one of the quality probiotic brands available on the market. Once we chose which bacteria, we had to figure out how to combine them so they would properly ferment a food-source and proliferate themselves to maximize the benefit to your GI tract. We understand that bacteria are alive and we should treat them with respect so we created a slow triple fermenation process to ensure these friendly bacteria are designed for maximum bioavailability once consumed. So suffice to say, there’s been a lot of thought put into Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ and experience that goes beyond the limited walls of a lab. We believe these years of applied research have helped to develop a superior quality product. Summary:  Innotech Liquid Fermented Probiotic™ features a triple fermented formula which has a low pH (3.5 pH) that allows the cultures to safely transit through the stomach acid environment to the final destination of the small and lower intestines. The strains of bacteria have been carefully selected to perform as a community thus avoiding the competitive nature of many bacteria stains. These are complementary bacteria that work together.Recipe refined over 15 years. Lovingly crafted by our Danish Brewmaster.
