17 Apr 2018 --- Results of a new human study show that Herbagut, an all-natural polybotanical extract blend, supports gut health. The study discovered that the product can relieve digestive stress while improving overall well-being, the company reports. Herbalife is rooted in traditional Ayurvedic botanical ingredients that have been used for centuries for gut health and general well-being.

Herbagut is a proprietary blend of 14 botanical extracts developed and marketed by Arjuna Natural Ltd.

The study, published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine demonstrated that this synergistic polybotanical extract helps support overall well-being and healthy gut function. Discomfort in the gut has been linked to anxiety, stress, and depression (the so-called “gut-brain” axis). The synergistic action of ingredients in Herbagut offers mucosal protection and helps maintain the integrity of internal lining of the gut. It also has a proven anti-inflammatory effect, helping to support a diverse gut microbiota and aiding in gut motility.

“This trial confirms that daily intake of 800 mg of Herbagut over a 28-day period can improve gut health and related health conditions in people with unsatisfactory bowel habits,” says Benny Antony, PhD., Joint Managing Director for Arjuna. 

“The tradition of Ayurvedic medicine, used for hundreds of years, is finally backed by research and is accessible to consumers who seek natural relief from digestive stress,” he adds.

The study further proved that Herbagut is safe to use in food supplements, offering a range of specific benefits that include: improvement of gut microflora, regular bowel movements, constipation relief, and mitigation of abdominal pain, abdominal distension, heartburn, and straining at defecation. Through its support of a healthy gut-brain interaction, it significantly improves the overall quality of life. Other aspects of the study demonstrated that the phytochemicals in Herbagut could selectively kill pathogenic bacteria.

The botanical ingredients used in Herbagut are individually extracted and blended in proprietary ratio with unique fingerprinting to ensure stringent quality, efficacy, and consistency. Herbagut® is certified pure, sustainable, and traceable, and conforms to EU regulations including PAH. All of the 14 botanical extracts used in Herbagut are approved in the EU and US for use in food supplements. 

The gut-brain axis has been a term on many lips in the industry, with both Taiyo and NZMP entering the field with NPD’s.

The company will exhibit Herbagut at Vitafoods, Geneva, May 15th to 17th at booth J30. You can view NutritionInsight's preview of Vitafoods 2018, here.
