HOW IT WORKS
Gastro Health contains ingredients that have been shown to inhibit the growth and adhesion of unfavorable organisms in the GI tract.
WHY GASTRO HEALTH?
Decades ago, Nature’s Sunshine product innovators set out to create a novel, botanical formula that would provide targeted digestive system support. After testing hundreds of herbs in the lab, our product designers settled on a unique formulation. Gastro Health features the immune-supporting benefits of pau d’arco bark. Because of overharvesting, these trees are a protected species in Brazil. To preserve this herbal wonder for future generations, we work with experienced, native partners to ensure that the inner bark material is carefully and legally acquired. It’s also non-GMO project verified.
THE STORY BEHIND GASTRO HEALTH CONCENTRATE
Ancient Greeks and Romans used licorice root for health benefits. Traditional Chinese Medicines relied on licorice to provide respiratory, digestive and reproductive system support. Pau d’arco’s dense, rot-resistant wood makes excellent hunting bows and building material. According to records, it was used by the Incas, the Kallawayas and other native South American groups for its many healing properties. Its Latin name Tabebuia heptaphylla led to the nickname taheebo, and many people from the region are familiar with taheebo tea. Clove flowers grow on tropical evergreen trees in Indonesia, Madagascar and Tanzania. They have a history of traditional use and are linked with oral health. Greeks and Romans used elecampane for a number of things including digestive and respiratory concerns. Hippocrates advocated it for the kidneys, brain, uterus and stomach. Roman author, naturalist and military commander Pliny said that eating elecampane daily would “help digestion and cause mirth.” And we can all use a little more mirth.
