Natursyl Capsules, provided by Douglas
Laboratories, supplies a synergistic blend of
ingredients including citrus pectin and psyllium seed
husks, intended to naturally stimulate the bowel. This
unique formula also provides probiotics such as
Lactobacillus acidophilus to promote intestinal
The dietary fiber offered by the psyllium seed husks
provides many nutritional benefits for the health and
detoxifying properties of the gastrointestinal tract.
Soluble dietary fiber, such as pectin, many gums, and
some hemicelluloses, are fermented in the colon to
varying degrees. This results in lower colonic pH
(acidity) and the production of short chain fatty acids,
important for the health and detoxifying power of not
only mucosal cells, but also the intestinal microflora.
Probiotic dietary Lactobacillus acidophilus colonizes
the intestinal tract, depending on the specific
bacterium-to-host affinity. Bacteria are continually in
competition for colonization space. The original
bacterial colonies have an advantage over transient
bacteria. Nevertheless, the composition of the
intestinal microflora is dynamic and constantly
If harmful microorganisms proliferate, as in the case
of toxic diarrheal or fungal infections (e.g., Candida
albicans), the equilibrium is disturbed, and it
becomes difficult even for indigenous bacteria to
maintain their necessary territory to colonize the
intestine. Antibiotics tend to kill off both beneficial
and harmful bacteria, and thus may also disturb the
normal, healthy balance of intestinal microorganisms.
