You may be recommended supplements during your treatment to improve your health and well-being. These supplements may include:
ACIDOPHILUS – Puts the “good” bacteria back into the gut to improve digestion and good health. They play a part in manufacturing some vitamins, detoxification and regulation of the blood glucose levels.
L-GLUTAMINE – Heals and repairs the gut especially after illness and food poisoning.
ANTI-CANDIDA PREPARATIONS – Kill off any Candida or yeast overgrowth. Grapefruit seed extract is one example.
MILK THISTLE – Especially good for a tired and sluggish liver. It promotes healing of the liver and therefore liver function improves.
ZINC – Improves the immune system, skin and aids fertility. It is essential for normal smell, taste, growth and wound healing.
SLIPPERY ELM – Heals the bowel and helps to reduce inflammation of the gut.
CO-TON – Improves elimination and tones the bowel muscle without a strong laxative effect.
PSYLLIUM HUSKS – An excellent source of soluble dietary fibre and is therefore beneficial when used for constipation (when used properly). It is a great intestinal cleanser.
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS – EFAs can’t be synthesised in the body and must therefore be obtained from the diet. They maintain healthy skin and heart, joints and improve brain function. They also help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. EFAs are great anti-inflammatory and immune boosting supplements.
