Indigestion, heartburn, irregularity...three things that are all too common for the average American after a big meal. or When you experience these problems, your first instinct may be to grab for an over-the-counter remedy to relieve your symptoms. But what if there was an all-natural answer?
What is Peptisol?
Peptisol is Quality of Life’s completely plant-based supplement designed to relieve occasional indigestion and heartburn, strengthen stomach lining and promote regularity. Its three principal ingredients - artichoke, ginger, and GutGard - work in harmony to settle the stomach and promote a harmonious balance. Find out more about Peptisol’s ingredients below!
While you might only think of artichoke as an ingredient in your favorite dip, this thistle (it’s not actually a vegetable) is a nutrient powerhouse. Packed with vitamins C and K, protein, fiber and antioxidants, artichokes are a delicious and healthy addition to a regular diet. You may also be surprised to know that there are health benefits in artichoke leaf. According to one study, 247 people with indigestion determined that consuming artichoke leaf extract daily for six weeks reduced symptoms, such as flatulence and uncomfortable feelings of fullness. It is believed that cynarin, a naturally occuring compound in artichokes, helps stimulate the flow of bile from the liver and reduce symptoms of heartburn.
Fragrant and spicy, ginger is a staple in Asian cuisine as well as natural remedies around the world. If you’ve ever sipped a soothing ginger tea after a heavy meal, then you probably already know the benefits of this mighty root. While there are hundreds of compounds in ginger, the one that stands out is known as gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Research shows that gingerol gently soothes nausea, sea sickness and morning sickness caused by pregnancy.
Love it or hate it, licorice is here to stay. Often used as a sweetener in candy and soda, the use of licorice as a medicinal ingredient goes all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. Still a popular natural remedy today, licorice root extract relieves symptoms of occasional indigestion and heartburn by increasing the secretion of protective gastric mucus and increasing the pH of gastric fluid.* In a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study, GutGard slashed symptoms of occasional heartburn by more than half.* Gutgard is a proprietary, clinically validated licorice with glycyrrhizin removed, which is a safer form to ingest.
Now that you know about Peptisol, here are some other ways to fight stomach irregularities:
In a study from the University of Illinois, researchers found that exercising for just six weeks could have an impact on the gut microbiome. Traditional strength training and yoga are some of the best exercises for the gut - so get moving!
Staying hydrated is one of the most important factors in a healthy body - not just the tummy. It flushes out toxins in the gut, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates joints and protects your spinal cord.
Maintain a healthy gut microbiome
The health of our gut microbiome is bar none. To maintain a healthy balance, consider taking a daily probiotic like ProBioPure, which promotes daily regularity. In addition to probiotic supplements, fermented foods like kimchi and yogurt are naturally rich in good bacteria and make great additions to any diet.
Stay away from foods that don’t suit you
It’s that simple! Whether you are lactose intolerant or have a gluten allergy, stay away from foods that don’t agree with your stomach. We know this can be especially hard for people with only minor intolerances, but we promise you your stomach will thank you for it.
Lay off booze
Alcohol can cause an imbalance of gut bacteria and may increase the proliferation of “bad” bacteria. As part of a healthy diet, limit your alcohol intake to no more than one drink per day for women and two for men, according to the official guidelines.
