Dr. Luigi Gratton, M.D., M.P.H., and Herbalife’s vice president of medical affairs and education, answers your questions about our digestive health products.
Q: Why is digestive health so valuable?
A: Most people have experienced digestive issues at some point in their lives. Many modern diets lack the sufficient nutrition, such as fiber, for good digestive health. Fiber is essential for weight management and intestinal health but most people only eat half the recommended daily dietary fiber intake.
Q: What can I do to increase my fiber intake?
A: I always encourage people to eat 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables each day to get their daily fiber intake. But I realize how challenging it is to do that with our modern diet and on-the-go lifestyle. That is why I recommend Active Fiber Drink Mix, Florafiber, Activated Fiber tablets and the 21-Day Herbal Cleansing Program to support your diet. These supplements can contribute to promoting regularity, a feeling of fullness and the growth of “friendly” intestinal bacteria. Another powerful product to support digestive health naturally is Herbal Aloe.
Q: How does Herbal Aloe promote digestive health?
A: Herbalife’s Herbal Aloe formula is gentle and soothing because we filter out the laxative stimulant, alloin, to produce an herbal aloe with all of the organic nutrients of the aloe plant. The aloe plant contains over 75 substances known for their healing properties. Herbal Aloe assists your body’s self-cleansing action and healthy elimination. Plus, you can support healthy digestion wherever you are with Herbalife’s ready-to-drink form. To maintain a healthy digestive system, support your healthy diet with plenty of fiber and Herbalife’s digestive supplements.
Herbalife Herbal Aloe Drink brings relief. The aloe plant is known to contain many beneficial substances, including enzymes, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Herbal Aloe Drink combines the goodness of aloe, with a delicious citrus twist for a healthy digestive system.
