Digestion plays a significant role in our well-being. When our stomach doesn’t function properly, we quickly focus on the discomfort and irregularities that digestion brings. Diet and exercise can have a positive impact on the digestive system, but it’s not always enough.
Often, it’s the elderly or pregnant individuals who experience issues with constipation, but anyone can go through periods when the digestive system doesn’t work optimally.
Natulax contains chicory inulin – inulin is a fiber found in plants, including chicory root. Inulin passes through the small intestine almost undigested and reaches the colon, where it can serve as nutrition for existing lacto- and bifidobacteria. This contributes to an increase in the quantity of these bacteria in the intestine, while also leaving less space for any unwanted bacteria.
It is important to increase or maintain the quantity of “good” bacteria in the intestine. The digestive system contains around 500 different species of bacteria. Most bacterial species are beneficial or harmless and help maintain the balance in the bacterial flora.
Natulax is a fine powder with a slightly sweet taste. Natulax can be dissolved in water and consumed or sprinkled over breakfast items like yogurt, and it imparts no unwanted taste.
What else can you do to avoid constipation?
- Consume a fiber-rich diet.
- Engage in physical activity – when you exercise, you also stimulate your bowels.
- Go to the toilet when you feel the urge – suppressing this urge can have a negative impact on your digestion.
- Consider pelvic floor exercises.
- Establish regular morning routines.
