  • Stay Regular With These Tips

    by Paula Gallagher | October 9, 2017

    oatmeal-blueberriesOptimal digestive health depends on waste and toxins continually moving out through the bowels. Providing your digestive system with healthy food and good microbes will enhance your ability to properly digest all the foods you eat. Furthermore, good bowel habits can help prevent many common bowel conditions and keep other body systems working properly. It's important to stay regular.

    A fine balance exists between the bacteria found in the bowels and the ability of the intestines to defend against disease. Prebiotics such as inulin and fructooligosaccharides (found in bananas, leeks, garlic, and onions) increase the effectiveness Read more

    by Paula Gallagher | March 21, 2017

    dog-catMany of today's most prevalent health conditions have been directly linked to improper nutrition and poor lifestyle habits. Even small nutritional deficiencies can compromise immunity, vitality, and damage health. Taking care of your own core nutritional needs creates a strong foundation for your body and helps establish a strong foundation to help rebuild, restore and repair your body if needed.

    by Paula Gallagher | December 12, 2016

    holiday-dinnerWith the holidays soon upon us, it can be easy to overindulge, even on healthy foods. Overeating or feasting on foods that you do not eat on a regular basis can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating, gas, heartburn and abdominal pressure.

    1. Digestive Herbs – Bitter formulas, such as Pathway Digest-Ease, contain a combination of herbs such as gentian, ginger, Oregon grape, fennel and peppermint, which can provide immediate support for GI distress, such as gas, bloating and stomach pain. Read more

  • Favorite Product: Pathway's Full-Spectrum Digestive Enzymes

    by Paula Gallagher | April 11, 2016

    digestive enzymesOne of my favorite products for digestive relief is Pathway Digase. We do a lot of running around on weekends, and many times have to rely on eating out, which means that you never really know how your stomach is going to feel. Digase can be a lifesaver.

    Digase is a combination of digestive enzymes that help break down food in order to make it easier to digest. When sitting down to a restaurant meal, I take a couple right before I start to eat and sometimes I even take two more afterwards if the dessert is particularly tasty.

    You don’t have to save enzymes for eating out to reap the benefits of digestive enzymes. Taking one before each meal can help the digestive process. Some people find that their stomach becomes a little upset after eating foods like beans or broccoli. Pathway Digase may help ease some of that discomfort.
