The microbiota of the human gastrointestinal tract plays a key role in nutrition and health. A delicate balance exists between the human intestinal microflora and its host. Upset of this community structure may promote disharmony.
Many different environmental factors may affect the gut microbial ecology; these include diet, medication, stress, age and general living conditions.
Under these conditions, opportunistic microorganisms, such as the fungus Candida albicans, can colonize various body parts including the small and large intestine. Herbs and other natural food components may help to support the body in maintaining a healthy microbial balance.
Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is known to have beneficial support in maintaining a balanced equilibrium within the body. Data have shown GSE to have supportive properties against a wide range of potentially unwanted organisms. The olive tree (Olea europaea) contains a major class of polyphenols.
These polyphenols, including oleuropein and derivatives, may provide protection against certain microorganisms. Studies have demonstrated oleuropein’s growth inhibition of undesirable microorganisms as well as its important roles in cardiovascular health.
Berberine, a natural isoquinoline alkaloid found in many medicinal herbs with a history of usage in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine dating back approximately 3,000 years, has shown to help maintain a healthy microbial balance. Burdock has been used for centuries for detoxification support.
Black Walnut has traditionally been used to support the body’s normal defense against microorganisms. Goldenseal has unique properties for healthy microbial balance as well immune-supportive functions.
Ultra MFP Forte capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support and protect their immune and gastrointestinal function.
