How to recognise a sluggish intestine? Sluggish, difficult digestion, constipation, flatulence, abdominal bloating and frequent weakness, are signs that invite us to take loving care of our intestinal health, in harmony with nature.
What is Amicolon?
Amicolon is a synergistic combination of natural herbs and vitamin C, designed to provide Psyllium fiber useful to promote good gastro-intestinal transit, so as to support general health and colon and intestinal tract function. We produce in accordance with high quality standards, without the use of colourants, sweeteners and allergens.
Use and mechanism of action
The colon is the last part of the intestinal tract and is one of the body’s main organs. It is very important for the elimination of toxins. Dietary deficiencies, unhealthy lifestyles and other factors such as stress, smoking, alcohol abuse and chemical substances such as food additives or medicines, can alter the walls of the bowel, compromising correct functionality. What could happen? Nutrients would not be sufficiently absorbed and undigested food would tend to stagnate in the stomach and intesting, resulting in putrefactive episodes and toxin production. This would result in “waste” accumulating in the colon in particular, which promote parasites, viruses, yeasts and “bad” bacteria, with effects on bowel health that tend to extend to the whole body. A far from pleasant picture. Amicolon helps promote regular bowel function, thanks to an effective synergy of ingredients including cloves, ginger, rhubarb, Ascophyllum nodosum organic seaweed, plantain, aloe vera and organic psyllium, a plant that has an emollient, soothing action on the gastrointestinal system. The addition of vitamin C completes the supplement’s profile, making it a valuable support for normal immune system function.
Suggested use: 2-3 capsules daily, with a large glass of water
Our suggestions for a correct bowel cleaning programme: nowadays everyone knows that a healthy bowel is colonised by billions of bacteria (so-called intestinal flora) that play a key role thanks to the probiotic effect. This is why taking caring of bowel and digestive tract health through a schedule based on the use of herbs, vitamins and minerals subjected to accurate checks and research, may be highly recommended.
Taking Amicolon just once or twice a year, following the below schedule, can therefore be useful:
- Week 1: 2 capsules twice daily
- Week 2: 3 capsules twice daily
- Week 3: 4 capsules twice daily
- Week 4: 5 capsules twice daily
The capsules should be taken between meals, with a large amount of liquid, preferably water. To allow the schedule to best contribute to bowel detoxification functions, we recommend that you drink at least 1 and a half litres of water daily. At the end of the fourth week, it may be useful to continue taking 3 capsules daily for maintenance action.
A “do-it-yourself” test to check the level of bowel and digestive system cleanliness, entails eating a meal comprising just carrots or beetroot and subsequent monitoring of the time taken for the faeces to pass through the digestive system, thanks to the characteristic and recognisable color of the faeces. Optimum results are achieved in 8 to 12 hours
