Posts tagged ‘Healthy Digestive System’

Microbes are micro-organisms that live in our bodies and play a role in our general health and well-being.

While some microbes are detrimental, the majority are beneficial.  These ‘good bacteria’ are called ‘probiotic’ meaning ‘for life’ in Greek.

Our bodies are full of micro-organisms — in and on the skin, in the gut, and in other orifices. Friendly bacteria are vital to proper development of the immune system, to protection against micro-organisms that could cause disease, and to the digestion and absorption of food and nutrients. Each person’s mix of bacteria varies. Interactions between a person and the micro-organisms in his body, and among the micro-organisms themselves, can be crucial to the person’s health and well-being – a very difficult and delicate balancing act.

Unfriendly micro-organisms such as disease-causing bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and parasites can also upset the balance. Researchers are exploring whether probiotics could halt these unfriendly agents in the first place and/or suppress their growth and activity in conditions like:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s diesase
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Ulcers and some types of chronic stomach inflammation
  • Vaginal infections
  • Infectious diarrhoea
  • Tooth decay
  • Stomach and respiratory infections
  • Skin infections

Designed to promote a healthy digestive system, Forever Active Probiotic is a small, easy to swallow beadlet that helps redress imbalances created by our food and lifestyle choices.  It works primarily in the colon where it assists with the process of food digestion, helping to release nutrients for absorption and contributes positively to normal human growth and development by encouraging and maintaining a balanced healthy system.

As probiotics themselves are quite fragile, Forever Active Probiotic uses an exclusive patented encapsulation technology that protects the probiotics then releases a unique combination of six beneficial strains of microbes once the beadlet has reached its optimum destination – the large intestine.

Teamed with Aloe Vera Gel drink, which cleans the gut and aids absorption amoungst other benefits, probiotics can be most efficient.  


Nutritionist Dorne Parker says “Probiotics can also help with fatigue, sleep problems, skin conditions, joints and muscles, allergies and general immune dysfunction”

Dr Peter Atherton, a GP and aloe research expert says “Probiotics are considered to be both safe and effective for preventing and treating antibiotic-associated diarrhoea and infectious diarrhoea.  They probably work by direct competition between pathogenic bacteria in the gut and immune modulation”

In summary,

  • Probiotics promote a healthy digestive system
  • Probiotics enhance nutrient absorption and immune function
  • Forever Active Probiotic is a high quality, easy to use probiotic that doesn’t need to be refrigerated and contains six beneficial strains of microbes.

With eczema being such a common ailment in today’s society (as many as 1 in 3 children under the age of 5 years old suffers with eczema) I’m often asked which of Forever’s fantastic range of aloe and bee products should be tried, so I list below they key points for quick reference.

Aloe and bee propolis is an amazing combination as aloe is a natural healer and nutrient-rich superfood, helping the skin to recover whilst the propolis cleanses, moisturises and generally alleviates the itchiness.

Aloe Vera Gel Drink (nicknamed the miracle plant or healing plant)Aloe Vera Gel-compressedHI

  • Propolis is a natural antibiotic
  • Leaves protective barrier on skin
  • Helps with cold sores and acne, too
  • Principal ingredients are aloe vera gel and bee propolis, blended with chamomile and comfrey, two of nature’s best-known skin care herbs, together with vitamins A and E (for their natural skin conditioning properties

Aloe Gelly (best for use on ‘wet’ eczema)

  • First Aid application for all skin problems (including acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, burns, prickly heat and sunburn)
  • Quickly absorbed and extremely soothing
  • It can relieve itching, swelling, pain, inflammation and soreness
  • Its germicidal action helps combat infections, while its soft texture lubricates and soothes wounded tissue in sensitive areas

This is not a comprehensive list of the products that may help, it is intended to give an overview of the key products I would recommend to assist in the relief of eczema.  For example, I suffer with broken skin around my armpits, so the soothing, unperfumed deo-stick is a must and the Aloe First spray is great for cleansing sensitive, scaly skin.

To find out more about the products, visit our online shop or get in touch via email.

Fellow distributor Jane Rubin says

“Just to add my own experience – I have found that the Aloe Vera Gelly is the very best anti-itch formula. What I suggest to eczema sufferers is to use the Gelly at night, then after washing in the morning, apply a thin coat of Gelly followed by the Propolis Creme. The extra moisturising quality of these used together helps with the dryness of the affected areas, and the Propolis is so healing of the worst patches. The Aloe First is also excellent, especially if there is a large area to be covered.”

and Ruth Goodwin says

“My daughter is eight years old, and suffers with eczema. She’s drinks the gel daily and we mix together Aloe Propolis Creme and Aloe First to put on her skin, and find this combination makes the perfect consistency to stop the itching.”
