More about Progast FloraCare Forte:
For optimal gut health and overall health, we need more than just probiotics. Progast FloraCare Forte offers a synergistic effect when prebiotic β-Glucan, vitamin D3, minerals, gingerol and perilla leaf are added to 4-strain probiotics. Synergy is the behaviour of whole systems unpredicted by the behaviour of their parts.
Perilla leaf extract, or Perilla frutescens, offers valuable assistance in the management of functional gut problems and possess anti‐allergic, anti-microbial, anti‐inflammatory and antioxidant activities. It has been shown to improve bloating, gas, fullness and abdominal discomfort.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a most phenomenal plant and healing entity that is beyond the scope of any modern drug. It has been used in Oriental formulations for thousands of years. Progast FloraCare Forte capsules do not contain dried ginger, but gingerol – an isolated oily-resinous substance, comprising 5% of the plant.
Ginger is one of nature’s richest sources of the proteolytic enzyme zingibain, an enzyme that digests protein.
Perilla leaf extract regulates the enzymes of lipoprotein metabolism and together, gingerol and perilla leaf extract synergistically play a role in influencing lipid metabolism.
One gram of zingibain can tenderize as much as 9 kg of meat! We know how difficult it is to digest protein, so imagine the impact on digestion of 150 mg of ginger extract in every FloraCare Capsule. Ginger promotes contractions, further assisting the transit time of food through the digestive tract. Food sitting in the stomach for too long is often thought to be the cause of indigestion.
Beside improving digestion, zingibain contributes to the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action of FloraCare. Studies have shown that enzymes like zingibain can enhance the effectiveness of probiotics. Both probiotics and digestive enzymes are vital to our digestive health and perform complementary functions.
Anti-inflammatory vitamin D3
Folic acid to further assist the body in digesting protein by stimulating the formation of digestive acids
Zinc Gluconate – an essential mineral and nutrient in the gut barrier function and
Selenium, as deficiency increases inflammation and oxidative stress that can actually contribute to gut permeability.
