New Papaya Forte - Probiotic Plus – Thursday 24 January 2008 PDF Print Probiotics are replacement ‘good’ bacteria that help keep the gut healthy. New Nutrausi Papaya Forte offers all the benefits of the most powerful probiotic along with other health benefits associated with ‘super foods’. Papaya Forte is a rich source of fermented papaya, papain and Lactobacillus acidophilus (1 billion viable cells per capsule) which are naturally found in the papaya fruit. The formula is made even more potent by the technologically advanced fermentation of the papaya fruit. This transforms the fruit into a powerful super food with an enormous capacity to maximise internal defence systems, fight oxidising stress and improve digestion. International research has found Fermented papaya to offer enormous support to the body’s natural defences, antioxidant and immune systems. It works gently yet powerfully with the body to support its digestive and defence systems. What are the health benefits of probiotics? An improved ability to cope with stress According to the British Medical Association (BMA), stress - which now plays a role in 80% of all illness - has reached epidemic proportions in the UK. The trouble with stress is that while in the short term it really can boost your performance, when it goes on for too long it will take a deadly serious toll on your health. The effects of stress are especially pronounced on your digestion. One of the more common symptoms of a body under stress is diarrhoea and in fact general stress has now been named as one of the primary causes of Digestive Stress Disorders. That means anyone who already suffers from, something like IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), will always feel worse when they are suffering from stress as well. Stress depletes the immune system, which is inextricably linked with digestive health. If one is out of balance, so is the other. This tends to lead to a vicious circle with stress causing more health problems which themselves create more stress because you are not as well as you know you could be. Taking a probiotic supplement will support your digestion when the going gets tough and is the first all-important step in breaking this unhealthy cycle. Stronger Defences A weakened immune system leaves the body vulnerable to virtually every type of illness and disease - fatigue, lethargy, repeated infections, slow wound healing, allergies, colds, ‘flu and thrush are all signs that the body’s immune system is functioning well below optimum. In a healthy gut, the good bacteria make up about a third of the gut flora and naturally produce antimicrobial agents, which kill off or inhibit the more harmful micro-organisms. When this balance is disturbed and the bad bacteria are allowed to flourish, they can bind to the gut wall where they can cause a disturbing condition called ‘Leaky Gut’. When this happens, the small, sieve-like holes in the lining of the wall, which, in health, allow only certain nutrients to pass through, become enlarged allowing larger molecules, including partially digested foods to get into the bloodstream. The immune system then springs into action attacking these larger molecules which can lead to food intolerances and even allergies. This not only creates a problem with what you eat, it also over-taxes the immune system leaving it less resilient against more serious foreign invaders that, (if not destroyed), bring disease into the body. Taking a probiotic helps to keep the levels of bad bacteria or pathogens under control. Helps eradicate Candida (Thrush) Candida albicans - the organism that causes thrush - is a yeast that lives in the upper bowel of almost every man, woman and child. Scientists have found no good reason for it to be there, but it does no harm either - until our immune and digestive systems become compromised and allow it to multiply out of control. Once this happens, the toxins it produces can interfere with almost every bodily function. Your first task in clearing an infection is to starve the organism of the foods it thrives on. Candida likes moulds - so avoid mushrooms, fermented drinks (including alcohol), and foods that may carry mould. Cut out sugar-rich soft drinks and fruit juices, moderate your intake of tea, coffee, and diet drinks and aim for eight glasses of pure water a day to help flush out the bowel. Taking a probiotic supplement to replenish levels of the good bacteria will stop Candida from running riot and growing out of control. Beats Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) The symptoms of this common and distressing digestive problem alternate between constipation and diarrhoea. IBS is believed to affect up to one in five adults - less than half of whom will seek help or treatment - and is twice as common in women as men. Nausea, bloating, food intolerances, and abdominal pain are typical additional symptoms. The condition interferes with the proper absorption of nutrients so there may also be underlying deficiencies causing a range of other associated problems. The symptoms are always worse under stress. People with IBS usually have low levels of good bacteria that would otherwise maintain harmony in the gut. Probiotics can help by normalising digestion and boosting the absorption of nutrients from the diet. They have been shown in clinical trials to relieve the symptoms of IBS. They also help the body make the B Vitamins, which are known as nature’s own stress-busters, and so can help further reduce symptoms even when stress levels are high. Helps improve skin Even if you suffer from a serious skin complaint such as acne, you will notice a dramatic improvement to your skin if you take a probiotic supplement. This is because acne has been linked in some studies to intestinal health with researchers reporting increased blood levels of toxins absorbed from the gut. It has been shown that in about 50% of cases of acne, the natural balance of the gut bacteria has been disrupted and the bad bacteria are much more prevalent than the good bacteria. This is called dysbiosis - the disturbance of the natural balance –Probiotics really can make a difference to your skin, whether you are suffering from an acne outbreak or the occassional spot. Helps maintain optimum health whilst on holiday Probiotics will help prevent traveler’s tummy, which may be caused by infection, or eating and drinking contaminated food and water. A lot of IBS sufferers find their symptoms are worse when they travel and eat unfamiliar foods, so taking a probiotic both before and during the holiday will help. Assists the body to recover when on antibiotics The trouble with antibiotics is that while they will kill off the bugs that may be causing infection, they are non-discriminatory and so will also attack the friendly bugs in the digestive tract that actually work to keep us healthy. The over-prescribing of antibiotics is one of the most common causes of Digestive Stress. However, supplementing the diet with a good quality probiotic will help redress the balance and put the good bacteria back in control. Whenever you are prescribed antibiotics you need to take a probiotic as well, to counter the negative effects on your digestive system. Improves energy levels It takes 80% of your energy to digest and eliminate your food – and that’s when everything is working well. If you suffer from Digestive Stress, this figure will be higher leaving less and less energy for the body’s important rest & repair mechanisms. As probiotics improve digestive health, they bring this figure back to the normal level of 80% leaving you with enough energy to get on with the more important things in life. Who will benefit from taking New Papaya Forte probiotics? The prevention of sickness, including digestive problems, is so much better than cure so we can all benefit from taking a daily Probiotic. Among those who will see the most dramatic difference to their health and well-being are people who: - have a hectic and stressful lifestyle - are prone to infections; including colds - have a history of Digestive Stress - especially IBS - are prone to thrush - are or have been taking antibiotics - are traveling abroad How do I know they really work? There have now been over 50 clinical trials involving some 6,000 patients and all asking “Do Probiotics really work?” In 100 patients with severe IBS, of the 20 who took a Lactobacillus probiotic, 70% reported a dramatic improvement in symptoms. Of those who took conventional anti-spasmodic treatments, less than a third reported any kind of relief and of those who took an inactivated placebo pill, nobody said they felt any better. All but a handful of those taking part in these various probiotic trials came back with the good news that we really can trust these supplements to do what they claim - as long as we know what we are buying. So Why Nutrausi Papaya Forte? New Nutrausi Papaya Forte is a probiotic plus. It contains concentrated fermented papaya and provides a rich source of amino acids and enzymes which restores balance to the internal systems. It is made from non-genetically modified papaya, grown and produced without the use of chemical fertilisers, colours or preservatives or the addition of sugar. Papaya Forte contains papain and 1 billion Lactobacillus acidophilus cells per capsule, naturally. Why fermented? The fermentation process is the key to many of the benefits seen with Papaya Forte. Fermentation transforms the papaya fruit by a process of pre-digestion which breaks down the nutrients into simpler forms. This further supports digestion by easing the process and promotes healthy flora in the digestive tract. It produces beneficial enzymes and helps the body to absorb nutrients more efficiently from food. Fermented Papaya has been found through research to gently yet powerfully support both antioxidant and immune systems. The unique formulation of Nutrausi Papaya Forte (highly concentrated fermented papaya, a rich source of amino acids, lactobacillus acidophilus and the papain enzyme) offers a potent support for digestive and immune health, maintaining the body’s defence systems through the ageing process. Papain …. ….is a powerful protein digesting enzyme which is naturally found in the papaya fruit and can break down proteins into simple components which can be more easily used by the body. This removes stress from the liver and immune system as undigested proteins can cause an unhealthy gut environment resulting in bloating and wind which can put pressure on the liver as they must be carefully detoxified before continuing on their journey through the gut. Papain cleanses the body by breaking down excess mucus and dead tissue which helps to support nutrient absorption and promote a healthy gut environment. Papain is easily absorbed by the intestine into the blood circulation where research suggests it may reduce the swelling, redness and pain caused by inflammation. Lactobacillus Acidophilus…… …… is a well researched bacterium which gently supports digestion and balances the pH in the gut. This reduces the establishment of bad bacteria which can cause bugs and infections. Lactobacillus acidophilus is well known for its beneficial effects on the immune system. And in also supporting the digestive system it also helps us obtain all the nutrition we need from our food. Nutrausi Papaya Forte…… …….is produced under strict quality controls. It is totally natural with no added colours, flavours, sugar or preservatives. The papayas are non genetically modified and produced without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. Papaya Forte supports the body by sustaining the immune system and antioxidant status and improves the nutritional and microbial balance of the intestinal tract. Working from the inside, its properties are active at the deepest cellular level, enhancing defences which can be disturbed by modern lifestyle pressures and ageing. Papaya Forte is sold in packs of 36 capsules – RRP £23.95 from www.revital.co.uk or any Revital store. The recommended dose is 2 capsules a day for the first 6 days followed by 1 capsule a day thereafter. For optimal digestive support they are best taken with food.
