Our digestive systems are amazing things. They process the food we eat and expel the waste at the other end. But sometimes factors such as stress, ill health, getting older, or today`s processed diets may mean that an optimum digestive system isn`t something everyone enjoys everyday. When this happens, you can feel bloated, sluggish and generally uncomfortable. Now there`s Lepicol plus digestive enzymes, a formulation that has a 4 pronged approach to maintaining a healthy digestive system - `top to bottom.`
What is Lepicol plus+?
Lepicol is a multi-fibre source product containing inulin and gentle psyllium husk, which contributes to maintaining normal bowel transit. Together these two ingredients can help ensure your recommended daily intake of fibre. The third ingredient is 5 strains of live bacteria that are normally present in a healthy person`s digestive system. Lepicol plus+ has the extra benefit of enzymes and three botanicals, ginger root, peppermint leaf and fennel seed.
