TERRANOVA Digestive Enzyme Complex enhanced with highly active, whole and unadulterated superfoods and botanicals. This will help the digestion of food and may be used by people with digestive problems.
Used in many cultures as a digestive tonic, fennel seeds are reported to have a soothing effect on the digestive tract and to support the function of the intestines.
Green Barley Grass
Barley grass is a rich source of chlorophyll, which is often used as a `freshener` for the digestive tract due to its influence on healthy bacterial balance in the intestines. Barley grass is also rich in dietary fibre, which provides support for healthy intestinal function.
Stabilised Rice Bran
SRB contains both insoluble and soluble forms of fibre, which support the overall benefits of probiotic bacteria in maintaining a healthy digestive tract. Especially significant to the role of beneficial bacteria is the content of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) in SRB. FOS is a type of indigestible carbohydrate which acts as a prebiotic (a substance that enhances the viability and/or activity of beneficial digestive bacteria).
Ginger Rhizome & Root
Research shows that ginger supports healthy digestive activity in the stomach, as well as possessing a soothing effect on the intestinal tract.
Artichoke leaves are often used to encourage healthy processing of dietary fats within the digestive system, as well as generally supporting the health of the liver and gallbladder.
Like fennel, the highly pungent and aromatic seeds of cardamom have been used since ancient times as a carminative and digestive tonic. As with artichoke, cardamom contains certain compounds thought to support the health of the gallbladder.
The powerfully bitter compounds within gentian root are associated with its common use as a stomach and overall digestive tonic, as well as its reputed value in maintaining health bile flow.
What Is MAGNIFOOD?
Each Terranova nutritional product is enhanced with its own synergistic complex of botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods, called Magnifood. Magnifood ingredients are combined in a manner which enhances the body`s biochemical environment in order to maximise the potential benefits of the product`s vitamins, minerals and/or other nutrients. Many of the plants used in Magnifood are fresh freeze dried. Research shows that fresh freeze drying has the unique ability to retain a plant`s enzymes, and is shown to be superior to other drying methods in terms of activity, stability, solubility and preservation of a plant`s original fresh chemistry (as it was when the plant was harvested).
