Blue Heron™ Provides Synergist Blend for Gentle Intestinal Support*
Submitted by Integrative Therapeutics
The importance of dietary fiber continues to play a role in restoring proper
digestive function. Dietary fiber is the edible parts of plants, or similar
carbohydrates, that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine.
Dietary fiber plays many important roles in health, including providing bulk to
feces, which aids elimination and supports regular bowel movements, and healthy
detoxification processes.* Dietary fiber also supports digestion by helping the colon
become more acidic, thus supporting the growth of beneficial microflora in the
Integrative Therapeutics™ has formulated Blue Heron™ to provide a balanced blend
of dietary fiber, nutritional herbs, and probiotics for convenient, effective, and gentle intestinal support.* The natural fibers and herbs
absorb and eliminate toxins, improving colon function.*
Blue Heron features:
Flaxseed is a source of omega-3 fatty acids and lignans. In addition to supporting healthy bowel function, research suggests the essential fatty acids found in flaxseed also support the body's natural inflammatory response.*
Psyllium is a superior detoxification and laxation fiber that has more reabsorption ability than any other bowel-supporting fiber.* Psyllium husk supports healthy intestinal lubrication for ease in elimination.* It also supports cardiovascular, endocrine, and immune health (additional health benefits that other detoxification fibers often lack).*
Rice bran is a rich source of gammaoryzanol, which has been shown to have protective effects on stomach tissue.* Studies have also shown that bran promotes comfortable elimination.*
Dried plum is a source of essential vitamins and minerals, dietary fibers, and a number of potent antioxidant compounds.*
Fenugreek is a demulcent herb, meaning it soothes the mucous membrane.* It has been studied for its protective effects on the gastrointestinal lining.* Slippery Elm Slippery elm bark has antioxidant effects and has been studied for its support of bowel health.* Like Fenugreek, slippery elm is an excellent colon demulcent due to its mucilaginous (moist, sticky) bark.
Marshmallow root has been studied for its support of colon mucosa.*Marshmallow has long been used to soothe occasionally irritated mucosal tissue, which lines the stomach and intestines; it also helps facilitate comfortable elimination.* Marshmallow also stimulates immune system activity, specifically, phagocytosis.*19
Triphala is an ancient Ayurvedic herbal blend consisting of amla, belleric myrobalan, and chebulic myrobalan fruits. The combination has long been used to promote healthy digestion, aid in detoxification, and improve immune responses.*
Probiotics are live, active microflora. Because probiotics do not permanently colonize in the body, they need to be ingested regularly for their healthpromoting effects to persist.* By restoring healthy intestinal flora balance, probiotics help promote comfortable bowel movements and reduce symptoms of gas, bloating, occasional constipation, and loose stools.*
This synergistic blend of ingredients utilizes True Dispersion™ Technology to ensure the psyllium and other fibers are completely released and dispersed for optimum digestive results.*
