The combination of the Six Pillars of Physiological Nutraceuticals forms the basis for the intervention strategy for a global approach to health aimed at:
Preventing the onset of pathological conditions (primary prevention instrument)
Supporting physiological balance (wellness instrument)
Countering ageing processes (anti-ageing instrument)
Acting as a coadjuvant in the presence of pathological conditions (treatment instrument).
- To prevent the onset of pathological conditions
- To support physiological balance
- To counter ageing processes
As the intestine is the centre of attention, given its role as the controller of the physiological homeostasis of the whole body, it goes without saying that the primary intervention of Physiological Nutraceuticals focuses on this organ.
It can be said that the Physiological Nutraceuticals philosophy of preventing the onset of pathological conditions, supporting physiological balance and countering ageing processes can be summarised in the aphorism:
– Take care of your gut –
The Rule of the 3 ‘R’s
Taking care of your intestine may seem difficult, and yet observing 3 simple rules can radically change the wellness of this organ and, with it, the whole body.
Applying simple rules becomes the basic nutraceutical instrument for achieving a true condition of wellness and for the implementation of true primary prevention.
It consists of three sequential phases: Rebalancing of pH; Repair of the intestinal mucosa; Replacement of the gut microbiota.
pH is one of the most important vital parameters for the maintenance of physiological homeostasis.
Gunabasic: one sachet/day dissolved in water, for at least 15 days, to be taken in the evening
There is no tissue that is not influenced by changes in pH. More specifically, prevalent and prolonged conditions of acidosis provide the me- tabolic substrate for the onset and progression of low-grade chronic inflammatory processes. The delicate intestinal mucosa is one of the tissues that most “suffers” acidotic alterations in pH.
Rebalancing pH is therefore a fundamental starting point for the success of the Rule of the 3Rs.
Gunabasic Key words:
- acid-base rebalancing
- cell function support
- mineral rebalancing
- anti-inﬂammatory, anti-degenerative, draining action
Gunabasic is the basic dietary supplement containing minerals and plant extracts that combats metabolic acidosis by restoring the buffer systems that govern the acid-base balance. Gunabasic’s composition guarantees a balanced intake of trace elements and minerals that make it possible to restore or maintain ideal metabolic conditions that favour cell function. The presence of plant ingredients such as bamboo ﬁbre (which is very rich in silicon) makes the product an excellent anti-degenerative of the extracellular matrix.
The intestinal mucosa is now ready for the second step of the Rule of the 3Rs: Repair and protect the intestinal mucosa.
By restoring epi- thelial cell turnover, modulating mucosal inflammatory states and resto- ring junction system integrity, we perform an effective turn-over of the mucosal layer and its selective absorption and barrier function, as well as its role as controller of intestinal and systemic homeostasis.
Colostrononi: 1 orosoluble sachet a day for 15 days
Colostrononi Key words:
- Restitutio ad integrum and protection of the intestinal mucosa
- Modulation of inﬂammatory states of the digestive system mucosa
- Protection of the mucosa from oxidative processes
- Selection of non-pathogenic gut microbiota
- Modulation of the mucosa-associated immune system (MALT)
Colostrononi is an additive-free, low-fat dietary supplement containing 100% pure freeze-dried bovine colostrum and Morinda citrifolia L. (Noni).
It is particularly suitable for protecting and rebalancing the structure of the mucosa thanks to the synergetic action of its natural active ingredients. Bovine colostrum is rich in im- munoglobulin and other immunomodulator ingredients, hormones and growth factors, amino acids, vitamins and other antioxidants and minerals. Morinda ci- trifolia L. is known for its anti-inﬂammatory and immune defence-stimulating pro- perties.
Colostrononi is an innovative, fast-acting orosoluble formulation, whose active ingredients are highly bioavailable for the organism. Its effective natural ac- tion protecting and rebalancing the structure of the mucosa makes it ideal for both adults and children in cases of reduced or altered intestinal function, due to infection (gastroenteritis) of bacterial or viral origin, presenting with diarrhoea, loss of appetite, abdominal pain and, in cases of intestinal dysbiosis secondary to pro- longed use of antibiotics, poor diet, infectious diseases, mental stress, unwhole- some lifestyle, etc.
Following the first two phases of the Rules of the 3Rs, the intestinal mucosa is now ready for the Replacement of the gut microbiota.
The intestinal habitat is finally in an ideal condition to “receive” the load of symbiotic bacteria introduced with prebiotic and probiotic products and to re-establish, once again, the correct conditions of intestinal eubiosis.
Proflora: 1 sachet a day for 30 days to be dissolved in water, preferably half an hour before meals
Proflora Key words:
- Synbiotic with synergetic prebiotic (FOS – fructo-oligosaccharides) and pro- biotic activity
- Probiotic load (gastroresistant microencapsulated) that favours rapid, long- lasting colonisation that adheres well to the intestinal mucosa
- Selection of the non-pathogenic intestinal microbiota (the selected bacterial strains produce bactericine against Escherichia coli)
- Modulation of the mucosa-associated immune system (MALT)
Proflora is a synbiotic dietary supplement, made up of 6 different probiotic strains, in a gastroprotected, microencapsulated form, associated with prebiotic ﬁbre to rebalance the gut ecosystem.
Microencapsulation signiﬁcantly improves the survival ability of all probiotic strains during gastroduodenal transit, which means that a great number of live and healthy microorganisms reach the intestine.
The probiotic component belongs to the Biﬁdobacterium and Lactobacillus genera and its metabolic characteristics generate a synergetic effect that guarantees a swift colonisation of the various segments of the intestine.
The prebiotic component is made up of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), which are able to selectively stimulate the development of the probiotic strains of all the groups of “beneﬁcial” microbes of the autochthonous gut microbiota. As they are not hydrolysed by di- gestive enzymes, or absorbed by the mucosa of the small intestine, the FOS reach the colon intact, where they are selectively fermented by the beneﬁcial component of the gut microbiota, particularly Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, which boosts the intestinal mucosa’s “barrier effect” and favours the absorption of certain mi- nerals, particularly calcium and magnesium.
