Cleanse & Detoxify Within to Promote Overall Health
In order to cleanse and detoxify the body, we must first remove the toxins. The best way to do this is through elimination of waste products via regular bowel movements. But bowel movements may not be enough. This is why Digestamax Digestive Protector contains Aloe Vera which enhances this food supplement in two ways. Firstly its ‘cleansing’ properties. Aloe is renowned for its cleansing and detoxifying abilities and when it comes to healthy digestion this function is necessary.
Secondly, foods we eat, the environment, medication and so on can all cause a build-up of toxins in the body. This build up may not be completely excreted by the body during bowel movements or urination. The cleansing ability of Aloe Vera defeats this build-up enabling the body to absorb the nutrients of Digestive Protector more effectively.
Psyllium Husk is a form of fibre and acts as a bulk-forming laxative which allows for easier, more regular bowel movements. It also has the ability to soften stool which can help prevent constipation. Promoting healthy, regular bowel movements is key to cleansing the digestive tract and eliminating harmful toxins.
The strength of the immune system starts with the health of the intestines. An imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the gut can also affect the immune system. An overgrowth of bad bacteria in the gut can leave the body susceptible to a weakened immune system. Basically, when your gut bacteria is balanced, so too is the immune system. But when it’s out of balance, so too is the immune system.
Probiotic bacteria is able to hinder harmful pathogens reproducing or even surviving in the gut. They can also control the amount of antibodies in the intestines. This results in a stronger immune system better equipped to fight off disease and illness.
This is why this complex formulation also contains Lactobacillus Acidophilus - a probiotic shown to help balance levels of good bacteria in the gut which will positively affect the immune system.
Probiotics have also been found to help improve the nutrient intake from the foods we eat, help alleviate some gastrointestinal issues such as constipation, diarrhoea & Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) as well as help maintain the balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract.
How Digestion Works
The Digestive System is comprised of the GI tract (digestive tract) which includes the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine (including rectum and anus). Food enters the mouth and passes to the anus through the GI tract. Then there is the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder which are the other necessary components of the digestive system. The digestive system helps the body digest food.
Digestion occurs as food travels through the GI tract. Digestion begins in the mouth with chewing and ends in the small intestine. As food passes through the GI tract, it mixes with digestive juices produced by the stomach, pancreas, liver and gallbladder, causing food to break down into smaller molecules. The body absorbs these molecules through the walls of the small intestine into the bloodstream, which distributes them to the rest of the body. Waste produced from digestion travels through the large intestine and passes out of the body as a solid matter called stool.
The digestive system is vast and requires all the necessary nutrients in order to function optimally so that the body can fight off infections as well as reduce the likelihood of constipation and diarrhoea occurring. Digestive Protector contains all the necessary nutrients to help the body feel its best.

Is Digestamax Digestive Protector Right For Me?
Optimal Digestive health is necessary for overall health. If left in a poor state, chronic constipation (which can result in anal fissures or haemorrhoids), diarrhoea or IBS can result, all of which negatively impact lives. Not only this but it can also diminish the ability of the immune system itself, resulting in you feeling unwell ‘frequently’. To help keep the body functioning optimally and healthily, a digestive protecting supplement like Digestive Protector may be beneficial to you.
Digestive Health in the Press
Health Article: Daily Mail: Aloe Vera - Digestive, Antifungal and Antibacterial Properties
Originally from Africa, the gel from inside the fleshy leaves of the aloe vera plant has been used since the 4th century BC to treat minor burns, intestinal problems like stomach ulcers, and to help speed wound healing.
Scientific studies have shown that a complex carbohydrate in aloe vera, acemannan, combines antiviral properties, antibacterial action and also stimulates the immune system.
Aloes, which are obtained by evaporating water from the bitter yellow juice drained from the leaves, contains anthraquinones - a strong purgative often used as a laxative.
Health Article: Daily Mail: Could PROBIOTICS ward off cancer? Increasing levels of 'good' bacteria in the intestines 'slows and stops the disease developing'
A growing body of scientific evidence points to the role intestinal bacteria plays in triggering and preventing obesity, and other chronic diseases. Now, a new study suggests that it could also help reduce the risk for certain types of cancer.
The findings show that certain bacteria in the gut has anti-inflammatory properties that help slow or stop the development of the disease. Ultimately, it could mean doctors are able to reduce a person's risk of cancer by analysing the levels and types of bacteria in their gut.
Over millions of years, gut bacteria have evolved into both good and bad types.
The good ones have anti-inflammatory properties and the bad ones promote inflammation.
The human body typically contains about 10 trillion bacterial cells, compared with only one trillion human cells.
Professor Schiestl and his colleagues isolated a bacterium called Lactobacillus johnsonii 456, which is the most abundant of the beneficial bacteria, and which has some useful applications outside of medicine.
'Since it is a Lactobacillus strain, it makes excellent yogurt, kefir, kombucha and sauerkraut,' Professor Schiestl said.
Researchers noted the bacterium reduced gene damage and significantly reduced inflammation.
Reducing inflammation is key because it plays a critical role in many diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, heart disease, arthritis and lupus, as well as accelerating the aging process.
Health Article: Daily Mail: Ginger - aids digestion, travel sickness and pain relief
Ginger root (zingiber officinale) has been used in traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic and herbal medicine for centuries, with a history tracking back to 2000 BC. It finally reached Western shores in the 15th Century AD.
Reviews of scientific studies have concluded that ginger holds promise for the relief of nausea and vomiting, whether caused by motion sickness or pregnancy, and is known to be useful in treating stomach flu.
Research has isolated a component of ginger known as zingibain, a digestive enzyme that assists the body's digestive mechanisms and increases the absorption of other nutrients.
The Science behind Digestamax Digestive Protector
In 1985 Bland et al conducted a study published in Prevention Magazine titled ‘Effect of Orally Consumed Aloe Vera Juice in Gastrointestinal Function in Normal Humans’ whereby he tested the effects of Aloe Vera on humans. His results showed that:
Aloe Vera is renowned for its antibacterial properties and according to Bland, Aloe vera juice had in fact reduced the amount of bad bacteria found in the gut for each individual tested. Without reducing it, many people can suffer from diarrhoea, constipation, wind, bloating and abdominal pain. Thus supporting the ideas concerning aloe vera properties.
Results also show that stool specific gravity is reduced meaning stool now holds water better so there is a decreased bowel transit time. This means results show Aloe Vera helps keep the bowel moving regularly.
Results were indicative that Aloe Vera Juice can help keep the digestive system functioning normally. And with the improved bowel movement and urine output, it can be concluded that Aloe Vera is an effective all-natural body cleanser too!
Prior & Whorwell conducted a study in 1987, published in the journal ‘Gut’ titled ‘Double blind study of ispaghula in irritable bowel syndrome’.
This study consisted of 80 patients with irritable bowel syndrome given either ispaghula (psyllium husk) or placebo. Bowel habit was unchanged in the placebo group, while constipation significantly improved in patients taking ispaghula. Transit time decreased significantly in those taking ispaghula compared with placebo, especially in patients with initially high transit times. Abdominal pain and bloating improved in both groups, with no significant differences between ispaghula and placebo. They concluded Ispaghula significantly improves overall well-being in patients with irritable bowel syndrome, and in those with constipation favourably affects bowel habit and transit time.
