Your USANA Guide to Digestive Health and Detox Support

A healthy body starts with a happy belly. Your digestive system turns all the food, drink, and supplements you consume into usable nutrients. It plays a vital role in cleansing and eliminating toxins from your body (along with the lymphatic system, kidneys, lungs, and skin). Keeping your digestive and detox function on track is central to feeling great every day. Below is the breakdown of products and lifestyle tips that will help keep your gut in check.*

Digestion is complex. It requires finely tuned interactions between your gastrointestinal tract and the bacteria living there. And as your food is digested, nutrients are distributed throughout your body while wastes and toxins are eliminated. You can support these processes with a number of USANA products recommended for generally healthy adults.*

Start with Everyday Foundational Nutrition

CellSentials™


When you think about digestion, macronutrients like fats, carbohydrates, and proteins probably come to mind. But your body also uses many micronutrients—vitamins and minerals—as it breaks down your food and eliminates toxins and wastes. A comprehensive nutritional supplement will help ensure your digestive system has what it needs—regardless of what you eat that day. Plus, it will support the rest of your body, too, for overall good health and vitality.* 


Add Daily Optimizers for Your Unique Needs

Probiotic


The bacteria that live in your gut are essential for keeping your digestion going strong. If your belly is out of balance, you can replenish the beneficial microflora with strains of bacteria proven to survive the stomach. By supporting an ideal environment for healthy digestion, this supplement will help maintain digestive comfort and regularity.* 


Digestive Enzyme


If you tend to feel full or bloated after eating large meals or certain kinds of foods, a broad-spectrum enzyme supplement will help support more complete digestion to provide relief. Efficient digestion will also help support nutrient absorption, so you can get the most out of your meals.*


Hepasil DTX™


Filtering everything you ingest—from food and drink to supplements and chemicals—is a big job. Fortunately, a healthy liver can manage the load. But if you don’t eat as well as you should or are exposed to high amounts of pollutants, you can lend your liver a hand. Support your liver’s ability to remove fat, toxins, and waste products from your body with powerful antioxidants that help balance your natural detoxification processes.* 


Use As Needed

USANA MySmart Booster: Fibergy Plus


Consuming more fiber is an excellent way to support your digestive health. It helps keep food moving through your system to keep you regular. And regularity helps move wastes and toxins out of your body. Fiber can also help feed the good bacteria in your gut. If you find it difficult to consume enough fiber-rich food, this booster will add 12 grams to a full glass of your favorite beverage to help increase your intake. You can also add it to a Nutrimeal™ shake for a total of 20 grams (just make sure you drink plenty of water—that may be a lot for your system at once).


WholeBio™ Microbiome Nutrition Bar


This chocolatey snack bar satisfies hunger as it supports your digestive wellness. It delivers 7 grams of dietary fiber from wholesome ingredients along with a unique prebiotic blend that feeds good bacteria in your gut. It also provides additional probiotic bacteria to support a well-populated microbiome. 


How to Fit Digestive Health and Detox Support Products in Your Day

Here are some tips for gaining the biggest benefit from your digestion and detox products:

  1. Make sure you consume MySmart Fibergy Plus at least two hours before or after any medications or other supplements. This will help avoid interference with absorption.
  2. Take Digestive Enzyme right before or during meals for best effectiveness.
  3. Don’t consume your Probiotic with hot food or drinks, it could kill the live bacteria.
  4. If you know you’re going to be placing a heavy load on your liver, make sure you take your Hepasil DTX before you indulge.
