A client made a
comment the other day that I KNOW will raise
a few eyebrows.
Often in this
newsletter, you see stories from clients raving about how Super Shield probiotic formula has helped them with a
variety of digestive and other health challenges, but this one
is vastly different.
See what Emily writes:
am unsatisfied with Super Shield. I was hoping to see a
difference and that it would help with my constipation and it
has not whatsoever.
SB: Emily, it appears you are only looking at part of the
picture here. And that is sabotaging your overcoming
For your benefit
and that of all my readers, let me explain here.
There are MANY
factors that can lead to constipation. To concentrate on only
one and ignore the others can guarantee failure.
DO help break down certain foods in your intestines which can
help tremendously with constipation, that's only a small piece
of the puzzle.
Here are just a
few of the many...
Factors contributing to constipation
Constipation is a
side effect of many medications including antacids, pain
medicines, antidepressants or iron pills. Emily didn't mention
whether or not she was on any medications, but that should be a
top consideration. Most people who are chronically constipated
have other health issues, and that often means they're on one or
If you suspect
constipation due to medications, it's time to talk to your
doctor about alternatives or explore natural remedies.
2- Lack of
Exercise helps to
move things along through your colon and thus prevents your
wastes from becoming dry and hard.
aerobic exercise raises your breathing and heart rates, which
helps to stimulate the contraction of your intestinal muscles
(called peristalsis). It is this contraction that pushes wastes
through the intestines and out your back door.
I don't know
Emily's exercise habits, but unless she moves her body enough,
she's putting out the welcome mat for constipation. Time to get
for a long period of time weakens the bowel muscles which makes
constipation even WORSE--not better. Plus, your body can become
dependent on them to the point where you can't have a bowel
movement without them!
Emily didn't say
whether she had a history of laxative use, but if so, chances
are excellent that her bowel is still sluggish from them or
dependent on them.
The brain and gut
are connected through a series of nerve impulses called the
brain-gut axis. That's why you get butterflies in your stomach
when you're nervous.
And that's also
the reason why stress can lead to diarrhea or constipation.
I'm not sure if
Emily has a lot of stress in her life, but if so, it most
certainly can be adding to her constipation. Exercise can help
relieve stress and so can counseling with a good therapist.
And for the
granddaddy of them all...
digestion is THE #1 most common cause of constipation.
You see, when your
foods are completely broken down and digested like they should
be, your bowel movements are regular and easy -- with no
grunting or straining necessary.
But when your
digestion is poor, your wastes are hard, sticky and mucus
covered. They can adhere to your colon wall to the point where
you practically need a chisel to get them off.
You could swallow
a wheelbarrow full of probiotics, but if you consistently undo
their positive effects and throw your GI tract into turmoil by
eating meals that your body cannot efficiently break down,
constipation will continue to be your companion.
foods for the job
great, but they can't always compensate for a
constipation-causing diet. It's like David fighting Goliath.
It's essential to
get enough of the right foods and in compatible combinations so
they're easy to digest AND give your body some help when needed
from digestive enzymes.
As far as what to
eat, in my health systems, Great Taste
No Pain and for gluten-sensitive people, Great
Taste No Gluten (gluten is very constipating), I show
you how to put together meals that are not only mouth-wateringly
delicious, but are MUCH easier for your body to digest. This
results in things "moving along" like they should...like Nature
Believe me, when
you eat this way, Nature WILL call. And it will be pleasant and
fast -- not the agony of sitting on the toilet for hours in
Get the enzymes for the job
The other piece
of efficient digestion is to give your body a boost when needed
with digestive enzyme supplements.
All of us need
digestive enzyme help at one time or another.
people who have taken acid reducers for a long time or junk food
junkies have a reduced ability to produce the enzymes adequate
for digestion, so supplementation is essential.
And whenever you
eat a hard to digest meal, your body needs extra enzymes.
That's where Digestizol Max can step in and help.
Digestizol Max's blend of 14 plant-derived enzymes will give
your body an enzyme boost to break down proteins, fats, carbs,
fiber and dairy.
Whatever you eat, Digestizol Max has you covered!

it would feel to be regular and never need laxatives again!
Well, when you
look at ALL the possible factors behind your constipation,
that's exactly what you can have.
So Emily, take a
look at what is contributing to your constipation. Not only will
you be more likely to help make it a thing of the past, but
you'll be able to better appreciate all the ways Super Shield probiotic formula is contributing to your

love your products and would not be without them.
As we age, our
supply of digestive enzymes decreases. This is especially
true for people who eat lots of processed food and hard to
digest meals. Foods such as these require LOTS of enzymes to
break them down and over time your body's ability to produce
enough enzymes is diminished. Nothing can make you feel older
than gas, bloating, heartburn and constipation from ineffective
digestion and too few enzymes. Give your body the support it
needs and feel great inside with Digestizol Max natural digestive enzyme supplement. Learn more about Digestizol Max and all the ways it can help you
