Abdominal pain and high blood pressure
I’ve always kind of had the feeling that my stomach can't process any meals properly, and my digestion suffers as a result. Not only did this result in cons- tant stomach problems, but I also suffered from high blood pressure. Despite my slim build and already balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, I started a diet to alleviate my health problems. Unfortunately, adjusting my diet didn’t help either, so I had to take blood pressure medication - without ever wanting to. My health situation was putting an increasing strain on me. I constantly had the feeling that my stomach was pressing on my heart and my digestion needed support.
On recommendation, I focused on my intestinal flora and started to build it up with lactobacilli and bifidobacteria in the form of Omni Lactis 10 Caps®. The connection between the faulty colo-nisation of the intestinal flora and high blood pressure is discussed in various recent studies and shows promising results - a very exciting prospect for me. I was very open to probiotics and confident of their importance because my digestive problems had been there since I was young. In my old age I was living a healthy lifestyle, but nothing ever changed. Only a few weeks after taking Omni Lactis 10 Caps® daily, I felt a significant improvement.
Shortly after taking Omni Lactic 10 Caps®, my stomach problems disappeared completely. Above all, the feeling of impaired digestion, that my stomach could not process certain types of meals properly, subsided - I was thrilled! Now I finally had the feeling that I could process the food I was eating properly and fully utilise its nutrients. I also take magnesium and coenzyme Q10 as these substances can have a positive effect on blood pressure. I felt my blood pressure lowering and was able to stop taking my blood pressure medication. Not only could I sense my health getting suddenly much better, but I feel downright wonderful today - who would have thought it, at 85 years old.

An average increase in micronutrient deficiency in old age is a well-known problem. There are many ways to supply the body with sufficient nutrients even at an advanced age: bacterial cultures for the gut or plant extracts to aid digestion, magnesium and coenzyme Q10 to support the cells with high energy consumption, such as the heart muscle cells, vitamins D and C for the immune system, omega-3 fatty acids to keep the increasingly rigid blood vessels supple. A blood and stool analysis provides information about micro- nutrient status and makes it possible to detect deficiencies early on, before they manifest themselves in symptoms.

Exercise promotes health, and a lack of exercise can cause the intestinal muscles in particular to slacken, which in turn has a negative effect on bowel function. Extensive walks, exercise and sport in any form activate the metabolism and stimulate bowel activity.
More than 6 g of salt per day has been shown to have a negative effect on many areas of the body, including blood pressure and digestion. Make sure you don't eat more than 6 g of salt a day and try herbs instead - they add just as much flavour!
