The Bowel Health Formula
The Bowel Health Formula is an all-in-one dietary fibre based colon cleanser, detoxification and weight loss supplement in a tasty, easy-to-take powder form – a natural solution for body waste cleanse and shape-up support with a special combination of psyllium husks, glucommanan, sugar beet fibre, L-Glutamine, prebiotics, probiotics, gut-soothing herbs and stevia leaf extract.
Due to its wide variety of nutrients and high fibre content, it is ideal for long-term use as a bowel cleanser and detoxifier, cell wall repair agent and an overall colon maintenance formula. It also contributes to weight loss.
The Bowel Health Formula is specifically formulated to contribute to an increase in faecal bulk, as well as encourage regular bowel movements, better digestion of foods, re-population of beneficial bowel bacteria, stable blood sugar levels and appetite control.
Sugar beet fibre, in particular, contributes to an increase in faecal bulk in two ways: the insoluble components of the fibre increase faecal bulk by absorbing water in the large intestine, while the soluble components are fermented by bacteria in the large intestine leading to an increase in bacterial mass. As such, this source of fibre may have a beneficial physiological effect for people who want to improve or maintain a normal bowel function.

- Fibre is a key ingredient to a healthy, varied and balanced diet.
- Glucomannan contributes to weight loss in the context of an energy-restricted diet. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3g of glucomannan in three doses of 1g each, together with 1-2 glasses of water, before meals. Click here for EFSA scientific opinion.
- Glucomannan contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 4g of glucomannan per day. Click here and here for EFSA scientific opinions.
Sugar beet fibre: Sugar beet fibre has been included in this formula because it has been scientifically proven to contribute to an increase in faecal bulk in two ways: the insoluble components of the fibre increase faecal bulk by absorbing water in the large intestine, while the soluble components are fermented by bacteria in the large intestine leading to an increase in bacterial mass. As such, this source of fibre may have a beneficial physiological effect for people who want to improve or maintain a normal bowel function.
FRUCTO-OLIGOSACCHARIDES (FOS): These are non-digestible carbohydrates or sugars that occur naturally throughout the plant kingdom in vegetables such as artichokes, asparagus, salsify, leeks, onions, garlic and chicory. As they are non-digestible, they pass through the human digestive tract virtually unchanged. When the FOS reach the colon, they are used by friendly bacteria (known as bifidobacteria or bifidus) for growth and multiplication. These probiotics in the digestive tract are required for the complete digestion and absorption of nutrients, detoxification and elimination processes and help to boost the immune system.
Psyllium husk: Psyllium husk is rich in soluble fibre and is therefore an ideal dietary supplement for anyone who wishes to maintain regular and healthy bowels. It is a retention fibre, which gives bulk to stools by absorbing water – as much as 20 times its own weight! This gives the bowel wall something to work on and lets it push matter through quickly via peristalsis. Fibre also stimulates natural bacteria in the bowel.
Glucomannan : Glucomannan is a water-soluble polysaccharide that is classed as a form of soluble dietary fibre and is usually derived from konjac root. As such, it is widely used for the treatment of constipation, because it can decrease digestive transit time and is viewed as a “bulk-forming laxative”.
L-Glutamine: L-Glutamine is an important amino acid, required by the human body for many repair and maintenancefunctions such as: maintaining the tissue integrity of the digestive system, providing fuel to the brain, supporting the immune system, helping to maintain and repair muscle tissue, synthesising protein, providing a primary fuel source for enterocytes (the cells lining the inside of the small intestine).
Fennel Seed: A gentle warming agent for delicate stomachs, fennel is also a carminative, aromatic and anti-spasmodic. A natural digestive and gut-soother, it helps to reduce wind and regulate bowel movements.
Peppermint Leaf: A well-known digestive agent, peppermint is also a carminative, anti-spasmodic, anti-septic, peripheral vasodilator and enzyme activator. A source of magnesium and potassium, it also helps to soothe the gut lining, promote gut function and regular bowel movements and reduce wind.
Ginger Root: Ginger’s actions include anti-inflammatory, carminative, anti-spasmodic, expectorant, vasodilator, circulatory stimulant and anti-cholesterol. It also stimulates the secretion of stomach juice, bile and lessens wind.
Bacteria Cultures: These are the “friendly bacteria” that work for the body and help it to function properly in many ways. Health-food advocates have long recommended using probiotics to help maintain a favourable balance of “good” versus “bad” bacteria in the digestive system and colon.
