is a highly potent formula that is designed to support healthy digestive function and create an optimal microbial balance in the gut.
15 ingredients – including active herbals, probiotics and other natural cleansing and protective agents – have been uniquely combined in this ‘all-in-one’ yeast balance, digestive health, cleanse and detox supplement.
These botanical compounds, which have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions, support the correct balance of gut micro-flora (bacteria and yeasts), integrity of the gastrointestinal tract and encourage the growth of friendly bacteria (probiotics).
Spore bomb is a Bill and Ben’s bestseller, and a firm favourite amongst practitioners and their clients.
It is beneficial to those who suffer from Candida Albicans, recurring thrush, IBS symptoms and most other associated digestive problems.
It is ideal for use in conjunction with a low yeast and low sugar diet.
About the ingredients:
Caprylic acid (magnesium caprylate) is a fatty acid known as a medium chain triglyceride (MCT), typically found in edible oils such as coconut and palm oil. Many studies have shown it has broad-ranging antimicrobial properties. Caprylic acid has a long history of use with purging unwanted compounds form the gut. It is particularly useful in treatment of digestive problems because it survives digestive processes and can therefore reach the colon.
Garlic is natural antibiotic (bacteria do not become resistant to it), which supports microbial balance in the body. It has anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-parasitic, anti-spasmodic and fungicide actions. Garlic is also thought to support the immune system.
Aloe vera is used to support gastrointestinal health. It is thought to protect the body from free radical damage, contributing towards the immune system and the natural defences against microorganisms. In particular, its bactericidal effects fight against staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus viridans and 5 strains streptococcus mutants. It has antibiotic, antiviral and analgesic properties amongst others, and helps eliminate toxic minerals from the body. It is perhaps best known for its soothing effect on the digestive system.
Cinnamon bark is used for many types of gastrointestinal upset, such as flatulence, diarrhoea and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). It has has anti-spasmodic, antimicrobial, carminative, anti-parasitic and antiseptic properties. It is helpful for all kinds of infections caused by bacteria, such as colds and flu. Moreover, it is thought to promote the secretion of gastric juices and is thus used for poor digestion, vomiting and hyperacidity. It is also useful for suppressing the growth of harmful microorganisms like Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida.
Quercetin is a powerful bioflavinoid, which blocks of inflammatory agents called leukotrienes (involved in asthma psoriasis, gout, ulcerative colitis and reactions to food). Its unique properties make it ideal for people with inflammatory bowel problems and for those who suffer with Candida.
Beetroot has high levels of dietary nitrate, which acts to catalyse oxygen (bringing more oxygen to the tissues) and is rich in iron and silicic acids. It therefore helps with many aspects of physical performance and healing. Moreover, cellulose fibre in beetroot promotes digestive regularity and bowel cleansing, while its alkaline elements make it a great cleanser for the liver, biliary system and gallbladder.
Supplementing with Lactobacillus acidophilus aids the repopulation of the body’s natural flora of ‘friendly’ bacteria. This type of good bacteria, or ‘pro-biotic’ as its also known, is found in the mouth, bowel and vagina. It is involved in the production of the enzyme lactase, required to digest lactose (milk sugar), along with other sugars. It also helps to combat pathogens and other harmful microorganisms linked with food poisoning and infections such as Candida, thrush etc.
Another beneficial pro-biotic intestinal bacteria, that’s found within the intestine. This strain works in the lower colon.
Similar to cinnamon, clove is a powerful antiseptic, anti-neuralgic and anti-histamine. It has carminative (warming, stimulant) and mild anti-spasmodic properties. In particular, clove is used to treat digestive problems like flatulence, diarrhoea, dyspepsia and worms.
Grapefruit seed is known for its anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic properties (due to the potent phyto-chemicals it contains). It supports the digestive and immune system against infections. It is useful in maintaining microbial balance in the bowel and is hence used to treat dysbiosis.
Thyme has microbial, anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-spasmodic, anti-parasitic, antioxidant and carminative properties. It is used for infections, irritable bowels, flatulence, mouth ulcers, coughs and Candida.
Glucosamine HCL is a raw material for connective tissue and, hence, plays a part in repairing the superficial layers of the gut mucosa (the area that contacts the intestinal contents). It is important nutrient for all body tissues.
Rosemary contains camphor, rosemarinic and carnosic acid. Rosemarinic acid, in particular, has anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and ant-bacterial actions. It has been used for centuries to sweeten the breath.
Oregano similarly contains many active elements, which are responsible for its antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties. It acts to inhibit the growth of Candida.
Zinc has many benefits, including its contribution to normal immune function, metabolism (of macro-nutrients, fatty acids, vitamin A) and protein synthesis. It also protects the cells from oxidative stress and has a role in cell division (along with many other EFSA claims). It is excellent contributor to good health and well-being.
