Size:1 Pack Bowel health contributes significantly to overall health and well-being. Without a healthy and regularly functioning bowel, we just don’t feel right. A healthy bowel helps reduce inflammation and cramping, improves absorption of essential nutrients, eases mobility and generally promotes vitality. The botanical ingredients of Dr. Schulze’s Intestinal Formula #1 are combined and formulated to help promote regular, healthy, and complete bowel movements to help you FEEL YOUR BEST EVERYDAY. Herbs in this formula, such as Aloe, Senna and Cascara Sagrada, contain the phytochemical anthraquinone, referred to clinically as Emodin. Emodin has been shown to increase the natural peristaltic waves, or propulsive contractions, of the colon muscle. Other herbs in Dr. Schulze’s Intestinal Formula #1 work in harmony to perform additional cleansing and intestinal health functions. For example: - Oregon Grape Root is thought to stimulate and flush the liver and the gallbladder and increase the production of bile, which is critical for digestion and absorption of fats and the elimination of certain wastes - Garlic is widely regarded as antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal - Habanero is thought to stimulate the colon and as well as contribute to the healing process of the intestine - Ginger is used widely to stimulate the colon and reducing gas Whether used for laxative effects or for an occasional colon cleanse, Dr. Schulze’s Intestinal Formula #1 may improve health by flushing toxins, optimizing energy and enhancing the immune system. A healthy, well functioning digestive system promotes health, comfort and happiness.
