Discover information about the Digestive System and supporting Vitamins, Supplements and Herbs.


What supplements support the digestive system?

Vitamins, supplements and herbs can be taken to help provide daily support for digestive health. Even when we make healthy eating decisions, we might need a little extra help with digestion from time to time with supplements.

Herbs for Digestion

  • Cascara Sagrada a large shrub that has been traditionally used by indigenous people in the Pacific Northwest of the United States for digestion.* This includes digestive cleansing support throughout the day. * Another great thing about cascara sagrada supplements it that they can be broken open to make tea if you have trouble swallowing capsules.
  • Psyllium husk seed come from plants in the plantago genus, which is made up of hundreds of different annual herbs. Psyllium seed husks are a source of soluble fiber and healthy addition to your diet.* Fiber naturally supports digestion and allows your body to absorb more nutrients.*
  • Ginger originates from Southern Asia and supports digestive health and is also used to alleviate occasional motion sickness.*

  • Probiotics For Digestion:

  • Probiotics are friendly bacteria that provide health benefits by supplementing the microbes naturally living in our bodies. Probiotics are a diverse category with a wide variety of potential health benefits. Some strains provide everyday digestive support while others may support immune function, abdominal comfort or more.*
  • Probiotic Acidophilus naturally found in the healthy human digestive tract. It is friendly bacteria for the digestive system and immune system.*
  • Prebiotics provide food for our microbiota, the microbes naturally living in our gastrointestinal system. By providing support to the friendly microbes in the digestive tract, prebiotics have the potential to provide many health benefits.* The word ‘prebiotic’ is seldom used on the label. Instead, look in the ingredients list for Inulin, Chicory fiber, or Fructo-oligosaccharides just to name a few.

  • Digestive Enzymes for Digestion:

  • Papaya is a nourishing and delicious tropical fruit that contains a digestive enzyme called papain. Papain is known as a proteolytic enzyme, and in the body, it is made in the stomach and pancreas. Proteolytic enzymes play an important role in protein digestion.*
  • Bromelain comes from pineapples, also a proteolytic enzyme. Pineapple is native to South America, where it has been used for centuries to support health and wellness.* As a supplement, bromelain is suitable for vegetarians and acts as a natural digestive enzyme.*
  • Lactase an enzyme that is essential for digesting milk, responsible for breaking down lactose, a sugar in milk. Supplementing with the lactase enzyme can make milk more readily digestible to your system.*

    Immune and Digestion Go Hand in Hand

    70% of immune cells are housed in the digestive track. The lining of the digestive system where immune cells are housed helps filter nutrients and keep toxins from entering the bloodstream. Ways to support a healthy immune system and digestive system:

    NUTRITION

    Eating a well balanced diet. The immune and digestive system needs proper nutrients to function optimally. *

    EXERCISE

    Regular moderate-intensity exercise achieved on a near-daily basis is associated with better immune and digestive health with age.*

    STRESS

    Both physical and emotional stress can negatively impact the immune system.

    SUPPLEMENTS

    Taking vitamins and supplements can provide additional nutrients you are not getting regularly from your diet.

    Get to Know Probiotics for Digestive Support

    Probiotics are friendly bacteria that provide health benefits by supplementing the microbes naturally living in our bodies. The body has over 30 trillion microorganism that assist in keeping you healthy. Depending on the species and strains a Probiotic may impact the following areas of health: digestive health and comfort, immune function, digestion and nutrient absorption, occasional gas and bloating and more.*

    CFUs are “colony forming units,” and this refers to the number of active microorganisms that can be found per serving in the probiotic supplement you are taking. For someone wanting to take probiotics to support their overall well-being and digestive tract bacteria balance, the American Academy of Family Physicians recommends a CFU count between five and 10 billion per day for children and between 10 and 20 billion per day for adults. Ranges above 20 billion are useful for assisting individuals with targeted wellness needs. When buying a probiotic you should review the CFUs, Strains and Claims to find the right one for you.

    There are several different types of species and strains of probiotics. While some labels only list the genus and species (e.g. Lactobacillus acidophilus), it is important to also include the strain identity (e.g. Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14) for each probiotic. Similar to the various species of probiotics different strains have different functions. Lactobacillus acidophilus includes strains commonly consumes as probiotics like LA-14. Acidophilus is naturally found within the digestive tract. Bifidobacterium Lactic found in the bifidobacteria genus is the strain Bi-07. Bifidobacteria are naturally present in the healthy human digestive system. Lactobacillus Plantarum this species includes clinically studied strains like 299v, which promotes digestive health and delivers good bacteria to your digestive system.*

    Puritan’s Pride Probiotics were recently reformulated to ensure the potency of live probiotics cultures through expiration date. It is recommended to store your probiotic bottles in a cool, dry, environment. Some customers like to keep their probiotics in the refrigerator. Our probiotics are tested or inspected as many as 15 times ensuring that our products are potent and consistent. They are also manufactured right here in the U.S.A, with ingredients sourced from around the world.

    Did you know? Fun Facts about Probiotics and its benefits. Gut health and immune health go hand-in-hand. Around 70% of all immune cells reside in the lymphoid tissue around the gut called the GALT. Resident microorganisms in the gut interact with the GALT to help support healthy immune function.* Antibiotics can impact the good bacteria in the digestive tract. Adding a probiotic to your supplement routine or eating probiotic-rich foods are great ways to ensure you are consuming enough beneficial bacteria while taking antibiotics. Researchers believe that probiotics may have the potential to balance digestion after an interruption (like taking antibiotics) to maintain healthy bacteria in the gut.* Probiotics are not intended to serve as a replacement for antibiotic medications, nor should you discontinue taking prescribed medications while supplementing with probiotics.
