Is your digestive system free of indigestion or irregularity? Hi I’m Luigi Gratton, Vice
President of Nutrition Education at Herbalife. If your answer to this week’s question is
no, you could learn a thing or two from today’s lesson. We are going to discuss one of the
most essential components of your entire body, your digestive health. It can affect our weight,
our energy, our skin, and our immune function. You see in your everyday life, your body maybe
exposed to toxins. Maintaining your digestive health can help your body neutralize and eliminate
them from your system and by supporting your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and eliminate
toxins, you’ll be enhancing your overall weight loss or weight management efforts.
Now most people have experienced digestive issues at some point in their lives. This
is because many modern diets lack the sufficient nutrition’s such as fiber for good digestive
health. The institute of medicine recommends 38 grams of fiber for men under age 50 and
25 grams for women in the same age group but many people only consume about 14 grams of
fiber per day. We need fiber to help maintain regularity in our daily lives, it promotes
an overall sense of wellbeing by maintaining healthy digestion. Eating nuts, seeds, grains,
and beans can help you meet your fiber requirements. We always encourage people to eat at least
5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables per day to get their daily fiber intake. Now I
realize how challenging it is to do that with our modern diet and on the go lifestyle which
is why I recommend taking supplements. Supplements contribute to promoting regularity, feeling
of fullness, and the growth of friendly intestinal bacteria. Herbalife’s line of digestive
health products are ideal to absorb nutrients and eliminate toxins. The Herbalife Aloe products
are gentle, soothing, and are made from the Aloe plant. The formula contains natural enzymes,
vitamins, minerals, and amino-acids that support healthy digestion. The product helps relieve
occasional indigestion, enhanced intestinal health, and support healthy digestion. Herbal
Aloe products come in three forms, powder, concentrate, and a ready to drink. My favorite
is the Mango flavor. Herbalife also offers the active fiber complex, available in unflavored
and delicious apple. Contains a bland of soluble and insoluble fibers to minimize bloating
and increase the sense of fullness. I recommend taking a combination of an aloe product and
the active fiber complex in order to help improve your bodies overall digestive health
and remember if you’re kicking off the creation of a healthy digestive system, Herbalife’s
21 Day Cleansing Product is a key component. It contains vital anti-oxidants, helping to
cleanse the digestive track. For more information about how Herbalife products can support you
in digestive health, you can speak to your wellness coach. This concludes this week’s
topic of discussion. I’m Luigi Gratton reminding you that good digestive health can be yours
with proper diet.
