TERRY’S BOTTOM LINE:
If you suffer from chronic, upset stomach, diarrhea,
constipation, or any other intestinal or bowel disorder, you probably feel like
your life is often out of control. If you’ve tried conventional
over-the-counter or prescription drugs, and they only bring side effects, but
not relief, I have some good news for you.
Ayurvedic practitioners have perfected a combination of
herbs that gently and effectively help you stay regular without unwanted
laxative effects and stop dangerous bacteria, irritating inflammation, and
cellular damage to the digestive tract. Each of these botanicals is powerful
individually, but as a clinically studied combination, they are unbeatable.
This remarkable Ayurvedic herbal combination will gently and
- Reduce bloating and constipation
- Prevent diarrhea
- Inhibit intestinal inflammation and pain
- Promote bowel regularity
- Restore gut microflora
- Improve nutrient absorption
- Eliminate toxins
You may deal with stomach and digestive discomforts like
bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or gas, every once in a while or every day.
Either way, you want to feel better quickly and without side effects.
Fortunately, a clinically studied Ayurvedic combination of
botanicals has the ability to normalize the transit time of food through the
intestinal tract, so it doesn’t move too quickly or too slowly in your system.
In other words, it can help keep your digestion more predictable and
comfortable. And in the process, you may just feel a lot less stress, too.
Each of these herbs
are incredibly powerful on their own, and have been individually studies and
recommended for centuries. They all work to stop stomach and digestive
disorders soothe and relax intestinal tissues, bolster the ability of the
liver to detoxify, and much more. And bear in mind, these herbs have many
roles in Ayurvedic medicine – far beyond what I’ve listed here.
Curry Tree (Murraya koenigii)

and boosts immune defenses.

fungal infections, reduces inflammation, inhibits tumors
Chebulic Myrobalan (Terminalia chebula)

the liver, reduces oxidative and cellular damage.

Ayurvedic medicine – the traditional practice in India – is
thousands of years old. It presents an almost parallel, but, vastly different,
track from that taken by Western medicine. As a holistic system, Ayurvedic
practice means looking at the whole person – not just a specific problem.
Rather than a mechanistic, single-system only view of health problems, Ayurveda
looks to a more complete portrait of an individual’s health. With that
approach, one of the first orders of the day is to assess the environmental
factors of a person’s health; their lifestyle, diet, exercise, and outlook. We
know instinctively that these categories overlap quite a bit. Ayurvedic
practice understands that, too.
For example, Ayurvedic practice considers three principles
of health – movement, transformation, and structure – must be kept balanced and
in proper proportion in order to live vibrantly. The equilibrium of these three
principles (known as doshas) is referred to as prakruti. The disequilibrium or
imbalance is known as vikruti.
Three of the primary goals in addressing gastrointestinal
problems are: reducing inflammation, strengthening digestion, and ridding the
body of toxins. These are factors often ignored by conventional, Western
medicine, which essentially is a “crisis management” style of treatment; great
if you have a broken arm, but not so useful for preventing disease.
To restore proper intestinal function and digestion,
Ayurvedic practitioners have been recommending a particular blend of fourteen
herbs for thousands of years. Some of the herbs may sound familiar – including
turmeric, andrographis, ginger, and licorice. Some might not – including
boerhavia (Boerhavia diffusa), curry tree (Murraya koenigii), and Indian
tinospora (Tinospora cordifolia). But believe me, Ayurvedic practitioners of
the past knew these herbs inside and out. And they still do, too. They know how
combining the right botanicals in the right amounts will yield something even
stronger than the herbs could ever do separately.
Clinically Studied, Amazing Results!
A clinical test with this herbal combination focused on
individuals with chronic constipation. For many people, it’s bad enough when
they have a day or two of irregularity. Imagine – and maybe you don’t have to –
what it’s like when you always feel out of sorts because of your digestion.
The randomized, double-blinded study was divided into
placebo and treatment groups, and lasted for a total of 28 days. Those in the
botanical group (Herbagut) took two capsules of the herbal combination one hour
At the beginning of the study, only 12 percent of the
participants in the botanical group reported having three bowel movements a
week. Aside from that, 84 percent reported incomplete evacuation, so it felt to
them like they still had to go – but couldn’t. Not surprisingly, the quality of
life surveys taken by participants before the study showed additional issues
beyond digestion. They felt social anxieties and stress probably owing to
continual discomfort at feeling bloated, and physically “off” for the same
Halfway through the study, at 14 days, things were looking
better. By this point, 28 percent of those in the botanical group reported
three bowel movements per week, compared to only four percent in the placebo
group. In addition, for 64 percent of the participants, the movements were
healthy and normal – that is, accompanied by no constipation or urgency.
By the end of the study, those in the botanical group
reported that abdominal pain decreased by 70 percent, constipation by 49
percent, diarrhea by 45 percent, indigestion by 64 percent, and reflux by 72
The treatment group also saw their overall quality of life
improve by 82 percent, their social relations by 40 percent, their
psychological health by 94 percent, and their overall physical health by 80
In another quality of life survey, those same patients
reported their physical discomfort decreased by 66 percent, social discomfort
by 72 percent, and other worries and concerns diminished by 70 percent. And
their satisfaction with life in general improved by 64 percent. Digestion is
never exclusively about your stomach or intestines – it extends to health for
your body and mind.
And the unfortunate participants in the placebo group saw no
significant improvements at all.
Digestive problems can make you feel run down, edgy, and
sluggish – in addition to the outright discomfort they cause. The clinically
studied herbal combination I recommend has its roots in Ayurvedic wisdom that
has proven effective for generations. I am confident that these botanicals, and
careful monitoring and adjustment to your diet, will yield amazing results.
If you are looking to effectively and gently rid the body
of toxins and tone the digestive system, I recommend taking 800 mg daily of the
following combination of herbal ingredients before bedtime. Make sure to take
with a full glass of water.
