A dietary supplement for the maintenance of a calm and healthy digestion. Each capsule contains Calcium, Turmeric, Freeze Dried Manuka Honey, Lactobacillus, Black Pepper Extract & Ginger Root Extract.

The Manuka honey is sourced from our very own Manuka Doctor hives nestled in the luscious green mountains of New Zealand. The honey is freeze dried into powder form and added to our formula which is lovingly made to the very highest standard. The MGO (methylglyoxal) level in Manuka Honey is derived from DHA (dihydroxyacetone) which is naturally present in the nectar of the Manuka Bush."

Maintain a healthy digestive system with Digestive Health*. Here’s how the key ingredients do their bit for your gut:

Manuka honey (MGO 300)
This high-strength honey, made by bees collecting nectar from New Zealand Manuka bushes, contains the active ingredient methylglyoxal (MGO), which has an antimicrobial [1] and also anti-bacterial effect on the body, according to a 2018 study by Ulster University. [2] Our Manuka honey is harvested from Manuka Doctor hives high in the New Zealand mountains, and then freeze-dried into powder.

Calcium
This mineral isn’t just about bones and teeth. It has a critical job for your gut too because it contributes to the normal function of your digestive enzymes, according to the European Commission. [3]

Digestive enzymes break down food, like proteins, fats and carbohydrates, into much smaller molecules that your body can absorb – and calcium is needed to activate the release of these enzymes inside your pancreas. [4]

A 2010 study by the USA’s University of Massachusetts found that calcium increased the rate at which fats were metabolised into fatty acids – with more calcium meaning a faster rate of digestion. [5]

Sources of calcium include dairy foods, dark green leafy veg like kale and broccoli, tinned sardines and salmon, wholegrains, and fortified plant milks and breakfast cereals. [6]

Lactobacillus acidophilus
Digestive Health* contains a type of friendly bacteria called lactobacillus acidophilus that helps ferment carbohydrates in foods, especially lactose found in milk. [7]

The World Health Organisation defines friendly bacteria, also known as probiotics, as ‘live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.’ [8]

Many studies have shown that friendly bacteria, like lactobacillus acidophilus, can restore the natural balance of microflora in the gut. [9] According to a 2011 study from Sweden’s Lund University, this can help prevent or reduce gut inflammation. [10]

Turmeric
This spice – extracted from the plant Curcuma longa – is used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for a range of purposes, including digestion. Its active ingredient is curcumin, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. [11]

Turmeric may also boost the number of friendly bacteria species in your gut, according to a 2018 study by the University of California – and this can support your digestive health. [12]

Ginger root extract
Another herb, ginger root, has been used for hundreds of years to soothe gut complaints, like bloating, constipation and nausea. [13]

It’s now been shown that it does have an effect on your digestive system: a 2011 study by Taiwan’s Chang Gung University College of Medicine found that, in people with indigestion, ginger increased the rate that the stomach empties after a meal. [14] Plenty of studies have also reported that ginger can curb symptoms of nausea in cases of motion sickness and for pregnant women. [15]
