Digestive Health

The Science of Digestion

The modern lifestyle brings a lot of benefits, but a healthy gut isn't always one of them. Almost everything about it tends to upset the delicate balance in the gut, from sugar and smoking to stress, alcohol, antibiotics and lack of sleep.

Even worse, the refined foods we eat are particularly damaging to the gut as they lack fibre to feed the good bacteria and are high in sugar and damaged fats to promote inflammation.

Finding the right balance of foods and nutrients isn’t always easy or convenient. That's why Total Balance and Kiwi-Klenz take a scientific approach to digestion.

Total Balance – foundational gut health

As part of our foundational health regimen, Total Balance Premium supports your digestive system through its truly unique combination of nutrients and enzymes for all-around better digestive health.
