Description

ANASTORE presents its new NEPENTA® Digestive plants range: a range inspired by plants from the Nepenthes genus, known for secreting digestive enzymes.

COLON-D is a combination of lactic bacteria and plants (psyllium, grape and acerola) designed to help relieve colon problems thanks to its digestive, laxative, antioxidant and immune-stimulating properties.

Lactic bacteria (probiotics) are living micro-organisms that are present in the digestive tract. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines the term probiotic as living micro-organisms that when administered in a proper amount cause a beneficial effect in the health of the host (1).

Psyllium seed husk powder (Plantago ovata Forssk.) is a soluble fibre that contributes to intestinal function, eases transit and helps maintain a healthy bowel (2). It also exercises a mild laxative effect which is indicated in cases in which softer stool defecation is advisable (in case of haemorrhoids, anal fissures...) (2-3).

Grape seed dry extract (Vitis vinifera L.) contains 95% of procyanidolic oligomers (OPC), which are molecules with antioxidant properties that help the body cope with oxidative damage in tissues and cells (4). Furthermore, grape seeds help maintain the integrity of the venous system (5), this characteristics may be relevant in cases in which there is a need for a better blood circulation at colon level.

COLON-D also contains acerola dried fruit extract (Malpighia glabra L.) standardised at 25% in vitamin C. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that contributes to a normal function of the immune system and to the protection of cells against oxidative damage (6), providing an extra protection in the diet for coping with the damage caused by free radicals.
