Herbs and Supplements

Cool Digest: When we are under any kind of stress, the digestive system produces excess stomach acid, which may overheat the system and imbalance the mucus lining of the stomach wall. This can result in weakened digestion and a hot and irritated stomach and/or upper intestinal lining. The acid can also creep up into the esophagus, causing occasional heartburn.*

Combining Amalaki, Guduchi, and other traditional Ayurvedic herbs, Cool Digest is designed to kindle digestive fire while cooling and balancing the mucosa of the stomach wall and boosting bile flow. For a system that is experiencing excess heat, Cool Digest may also provide support.*

Beet Cleanse: is an all-natural proprietary formula consisting of organic beetroot, organic fenugreek seed, organic cassia (cinnamon) bark and shilajit extract. It is designed to support the pancreatic and bile ducts and encourage the clearing of congested bile. It also supports digestive strength, healthy blood sugar, and lipid levels already within a normal range. Bile flow is critical to optimal health, digestion, fat burning, and detox. Beet Cleanse is designed to decongest bile ducts, increase bile flow and reset healthy fat metabolism in the body.*

Amalaki: Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), also known as Indian Gooseberry, is a small fruit from the Amla tree. Amalaki may be most well known for its support of antioxidant activity and healthy skin via the encouragement of collagen and elastin production. In this way, Amalaki supports not only the health of the outer skin, but also the inner skin that lines the gut, respiratory tract, and all the mucous membranes of the body. Notably, Amalaki has also been shown to encourage healthy good and bad cholesterol levels in support of optimal heart and cardiovascular health.

Ayurveda Meets Modern Science is hosted by Dr. John Douillard, DC, CAP, founder of LifeSpa and author of seven health books (including bestselling Eat Wheat and The 3-Season Diet), seven online courses (including Yoga Journal courses Ayurveda 101 and 201), and numerous free eBooks.
