DIGESTIVE+++ may help improve gut health of adults born via C-section
Lake Forest—September 21, 2015—The importance of gut health is now one of the primary areas of focus in the dietary supplement industry. As new research and studies are being conducted, DIGESTIVE+++, launched by LifePharm last year, is proving to be the right dietary supplement at the right time.

A recent study published in The Journal of Immunology shows that there is a substantial difference between the gut microbes of naturally delivered babies and those born by Cesarean section. Children born by C-section are shown to be at an increased risk for the development of immune disorders. Scientists theorize that the infant’s first contact with gut bacteria could influence the subsequent development of the gut, as well as metabolic and immunologic programming. A number of maternal factors are also found to be responsible for the establishment of gut microbiota in babies, including diet, mother’s age, smoking status, breastfeeding, antibiotic use and other environmental factors.

Kimberly Lloyd, M.S., has researched the DIGESTIVE+++ product in relation to the emerging data on gut microbes. She says, “Until more studies are done in this new area of microbiology, scientists will continue to debate the particular health issues that affect the microbiome. No matter how we originated, we can help ensure that our gastrointestinal tracts stay healthy by eating fermented foods and keeping a balanced diet. The reality is that in today’s environment, we need help, and I believe DIGESTIVE+++ provides an effective and convenient solution.

“DIGESTIVE+++ contains probiotics, described by the World Health Organization as beneficial microbes when consumed. The same organization states that prebiotics are ingredients, which remain undigested until they reach the colon and then provide the right nutrition for beneficial gut microbes to grow. DIGESTIVE+++ contains probiotics and true prebiotics, as well as the full range of enzymes required to break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats for the body to assimilate and absorb. DIGESTIVE+++ is a sensible and cost-effective way to maintain GI and overall health.”
