West Palm Beach, Fla (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
While nobody wants to talk about constipation, this annoying and uncomfortable problem is one of the most common health concerns affecting people today, especially those over 50 years old.
According to government statistics, over 4 million Americans suffer from occasional constipation, accounting for a whopping 2.5 million physician visits a year.
While many factors may hinder optimal digestive function, holistic medical physician David Brownstein, M.D., wants to bring attention to one major source of problems. He warns that, particularly with increasing age, insufficient fiber, or the use of certain medications, non-beneficial bacteria may begin to multiply in the gut — and crowd out the more friendly species. This can lead not only to simple constipation, but also to other common digestive concerns such as diarrhea, gas, bloating, or abdominal discomfort.
Fortunately, Dr. Brownstein, medical director of the Center for Holistic Medicine in West Bloomfield, Mich., reports, “There is a simple, gentle, and natural answer to backed-up or bothersome bowels — or other uncomfortable digestive concerns, one I recommend for nearly all my patients.” He suggests an all-natural solution to irregular bowel movements and other digestive issues: replenishing the supply of beneficial gut helpers by supplementing with proven strains of powerful probiotic bacteria.
According to Dr. Brownstein, this will actually help normalize the transit time of waste material in the colon, to provide more regular and less uncomfortable bowel movements. And with a balanced digestive system, there will be less embarrassing gas and bloating, too. In addition, since much of the immune system is located in the gut, immune function may be enhanced as well.
Because of these frequent digestive concerns, Dr. Brownstein recently teamed up with premium supplement company Medix Select to create an all-natural supplement to support optimal digestive system and immune health. This new product, called Bactipro™, contains a carefully designed blend of six strains of beneficial probiotic bacteria, healthful fiber and bacteria-nourishing prebiotics, a robust antioxidant blend, and a powerful phytonutrient complex — all packed into one tasty wafer.
To support both the small intestine and colon, the six research-backed strains in Bactipro™ include Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, and Lactobacillus sporogenes (as LactoSpore®).
Along with probiotics, Bactipro™ wafers contain Fibersol®-2 and inulin, to help provide more dietary fiber and deliver nourishing prebiotics to the beneficial bacteria.
Additionally, Bactipro™ contains an antioxidant blend of eight fruit-based nutrients including resveratrol and grape seed extract, and a power-packed phytonutrient blend from 26 fruits and vegetables.
“We feel honored to work closely with Dr. Brownstein to add this comprehensive digestive and immune support formula to our line of natural nutritional products,” said Ryan Clement, vice president of Medix Select.
To celebrate the release of this breakthrough nutraceutical product, Bactipro™, Medix Select is currently offering it at a 20% discount. Simply visit http://www.MedixSelect.com and enter promo code BACTIPRO when prompted at checkout.
