Thorne Research brings you this innovative approach to creating and maintaining healthy gut flora that is six times more effective than capriylic acid. Formula SF722 is among the best selling products from Thorne Research for more than 20 years.
Why You Should Maintain a Healthy Gut
In order for you to properly absorb nutrients‚ eliminate waste and maintain a healthy immune system‚ your gastrointestinal tract must be functioning at optimal levels. Many researchers and medical practitioners agree that a maintaining a good gut ecology through a healthy balance of gut flora (the microorganisms that live in the digestive tract) is a vital component of maintaining good health.
If your gut isn’t currently in a healthy state‚ don’t be too hard on yourself. There are many things that can contribute to a bacterial imbalance in the gastrointestinal tract. In fact‚ the standard American diet is constantly contributing to poorly balanced guts all over the country. Other reasons you may not have a healthy gut could be inadequate digestive enzymes‚ the use of prescription and/or over the counter drugs or oral contraceptives. The connection between gut health and overall health has been made many years ago‚ which is why some health care practitioners will now recommend probiotics; but recently the connection has been bade between a healthy balance of gut flora and a healthy balance of vaginal flora. Some believe that you can’t have one without the other.
The Role of Fatty Acids
For centuries‚ fatty acids have been used to help the body maintain an optimal balance of the microorganisms within the GI tract. But‚ in the past 50 years‚ studies have been performed to back up that primal knowledge. Many studies have since shown that fatty acids do in fact support a healthy gut flora.
What is Undecylenic Acid?
Undecylenic acid (also known as 10-undecanoic acid) is an 11-carbon‚ mono-unsaturated fatty acid that occurs naturally whenever you sweat. Many fatty acids have proven in studies to have a positive impact on the natural flora of the GI tract‚ but among them‚ undecylenic acid has shown to have the greatest potency.
Formula SF722 by Thorne Research delivers undecylenic acid in a base of pure extra-virgin olive oil. Not only is this supplement among Thorne’s bestsellers for more than two decades‚ but it also has been shown to aid in the establishment of healthy vaginal and gut flora. For optimal performance‚ take Formula SF722 along with one of Thorne Research’s powerful probiotics and a healthy diet. You can make an impact on the balance of the bacteria in your gut with fatty acids and probiotics‚ but when you eat an unhealthy diet‚ you’re feeding the bad bacteria and making it harder for the supplements to do their jobs.
