In need of a digestive boost?

WE all know looking after ourselves can be hard – we live busy lives. Yet to keep up that frantic pace, we need to get the self-care basics right. We now know that nutritional health, immune function and much more starts in the digestive tract. Thankfully, there’s one simple, daily way to look after the fundamentals. All it takes is two seconds of your time and 42 billion friendly bacteria.

But first, what do we know about the digestive tract? Arguably the body’s most important organ system, it plays an essential role in everyday health. Unlike other organs, it functions thanks to a remarkable micro-floral ecosystem. When we eat, bacteria enters the body; this is both normal and important for our health. Research suggests that this ‘good’ bacteria supports a healthy stomach, natural immunity, proper digestion, and protects against unfavourable yeast.

Good Bacteria are essential for good health and vitality at every age. However, poor diet, antibiotics, stressful situations, low quality food, travel tummy and ageing can all affect our levels of ‘good’ bacteria. And when the ratio of ‘good’ bacteria is lowered, health concerns may arise, including gas, bloating, low energy, constipation, diarrhoea, candida/thrush as well as decreased nutrient
absorption – and that’s when we need to replenish the ‘good’ bacteria.


One daily capsule of Udo’s Choice® Super 8 Microbiotic may be small, but it contains a staggering 42 billion bacteria (and 31 billion at expiry) in eight distinct strains. That’s because under natural conditions, the gut flora is composed of lots of diverse strains working in synergy to perform the many tasks of a healthy digestive tract. Super 8 includes both lactobacilli, which are found in the small intestine, and bifidobacteria, found in the large intestine, meaning that the entire tract is covered.
