Fennel Seed - 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 and Root - Research shows that ginger supports healthy digestive activity in the stomach, as well as possessing a soothing effect on the intestinal tract.
Artichoke Leaf - 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.
Cardamom Seed - 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.
Gentian Root - 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.
