Polybotanical extract blend Herbagut good for gut health, states study

The results of a new human study have shown that Herbagut, an all-natural polybotanical blend of 14 extracts, which has been developed and marketed by Arjuna Natural Ltd, supports gut health. For centuries, Ayurvedic botanical ingredients have been used traditionally for gut health and general well-being.

The proprietary blend, which is rooted in the centuries-old tradition of Ayurvedic medicine, will  be on display at the 2018 essay of Vitafoods Europe, which is slated to take place at Palexpo, Geneva, between May 15 and 17.

The botanical ingredients used in Herbagut are individually extracted and blended in proprietary ratio with unique fingerprinting to ensure stringent quality, efficacy, and consistency. It is certified pure, sustainable, and traceable, and conforms to the European Union (EU) regulations, including the legislation on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

All the botanical extracts used in Herbagut are approved in the EU and the United States for use in food supplements.

The randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled  clinical study, published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine (March 2018) by Adrian Lopresti at Murdoch University, Perth, Australia, demonstrated that this synergistic polybotanical extract helps support overall well-being and healthy gut function.

Discomfort in the gut has been linked to anxiety, stress and depression (the so-called gut-brain axis). The synergistic action of ingredients in Herbagut offers mucosal protection and helps maintain the integrity of internal lining of the gut. It also has a proven anti-inflammatory effect, helping to support a diverse gut microbiota and aiding in gut motility.

“This trial confirms that daily intake of 800mg of Herbagut over a 28-day period can improve gut health and related health conditions in people with unsatisfactory bowel habits,” said Benny Antony, joint managing director, Arjuna.

He added, “The tradition of Ayurvedic medicine, used for hundreds of years, is finally backed by research and is accessible to consumers who seek natural relief from digestive stress.”

The study further proved that Herbagut was safe to use in food supplements, offering a range of specific benefits that include improvement of gut microflora, regular bowel movements, constipation relief, and mitigation of abdominal pain, abdominal distension, heartburn and straining at defecation.

Through its support of a healthy gut-brain interaction, it significantly improves the overall quality of life. Other aspects of the study demonstrated that the phytochemicals in Herbagut can selectively kill pathogenic bacteria.

“The patent-pending Herbagut brand is now available in powder, granular, and taste-masked water-dispersible powder formats,” said Antony.
