• helps control inflammation related to IBD and celiac disease
• promotes healthy intestinal flora
• supports the proper digestion of gluten
• provides key enzymes for improved digestion and nutrient absorption
IBD and Celiac Disease
Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD) are the most common forms of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) in humans. These diseases are characterized by cycles of chronic relapses and remissions, chronic inflammation of the intestinal mucosa and an abnormal gut micro-flora.
Celiac disease is caused by an immune response to the protein gluten. It is believed to affect 1 in 200 people in the modernized world and results in a decreased ability of the body to absorb nutrients.
Digestive Enzymes & Inflammation Reduction
IBD Relief includes specialized digestive enzymes that help to prevent the exacerbation of IBD and celiac symptoms. These include AN-Peptides which are a source of DPP-IV, and which break down gluten and other proline rich proteins. Elimination of these proteins helps to prevent the initiation of an inappropriate immune response in the gut, thereby averting painful inflammation. IBD Relief also includes the natural botanical ingredients Boswellia serrata, ashwagandha and ginger for reducing inflammation and stress, as well as vitamin D3 which is important for immune system modulation. Saccharomyces boulardii also helps to reduce inflammation in the gut and protect the bowel from pathogens.
The key to the successful treatment of conditions like IBD & celiac disease is intervention based on a multiple-mechanism approach. AOR’s IBD Relief is one such formula.
ANPEP for Inflammation & Autoimmunity
Autoimmunity can be promoted through the inappropriate activation of the immune system by certain proteins in the diet. This is the underlying mechanism behind celiac disease, where the immune system inappropriately targets the protein gluten. The problem can be aggravated by a lack of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) enzyme activity in certain gastrointestinal conditions. Supplementation with enzymes having DPP-IV activity prevents the activation of the immune system by breaking down dietary proteins like gluten before they cause an immune response - a significant benefit for those suffering from autoimmune disorders like IBD or celiac disease.
Prolyl endopeptidases (PEPs) also help to break down gluten, reducing the occurrence of gluten induced intestinal inflammation. Currently the only treatment for celiac disease is life-long avoidance of wheat, rye, barley and other gluten containing foods. IBD Relief includes PEPs derived from the fungus Aspergillus niger (AN-PEP). AN-PEP is far superior to other gluten-reducing enzymes because it remains active over a wider pH range, and is not destroyed by stomach acidity. Not only does AN-PEP work at the stomach’s natural pH, but it has been shown to degrade gluten proteins 60 times faster than other enzymes commonly used.
Boswellia: Boswellia is well known for its anti-inflammatory effects. In clinical trials, promising results were obtained in UC patients using Boswellia. With higher percentages of patients going into remission while using boswellia than those using sulfasalazine (an anti-inflammatory drug used to treat UC), it is not surprising that 36% of German IBD patients surveyed use Boswellia as part of their treatment protocol.
Vitamin D: The evidence linking vitamin D and the prevalence of autoimmune diseases continues to grow. There is clear evidence that vitamin D is needed for the proper functioning of the immune system. Vitamin D has been shown to help inhibit the induction of auto-immune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, type-1 diabetes and IBD. The vitamin D receptor also appears to have a critical role in the control and response of the colon to chemical injury.
Ashwagandha: There is significant psychological stress in dealing with any chronic disease. Chronic stress may lead to a breakdown in coping mechanisms and worsen the course of IBD. Withania somnifera is well known for its ability to enhance the body’s response to stress. This traditional ayurvedic herb can also help support the immune system, which is tied into inflammation.
Ginger: Zingiber officinale has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for the relief of digestive complaints including nausea and intestinal cramps. Ginger helps to improve digestion by reducing inflammation, improving intestinal motility and toning the muscles of the wall of the gut.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast which is useful for fighting off disease causing organisms in the intestinal tract. It is used for fighting inflammation and infection in the intestinal tract as a result of microbial imbalances. Some studies indicate that it is useful in inflammatory bowel diseases for reducing inflammation and inducing remission.

Why celebrating life with food is important for our health
Especially in the darkest months of the year, there seems to be an endless amount of celebrations.
No matter what is always a common theme: food is the main attraction! In fact, the focus society currently places on food has caused us to associate certain foods with holidays, past events and special times. When we sink our teeth into such foods, it can bring back memories we hold close and take us back to a time we enjoyed. Food is much more powerful than we think!
From catching up for coffee, relaxing over brunch, indulging in a long lunch or bonding at a BBQ, it’s hard to imagine getting together without the company of food. Food is something we all have in common, we all must eat, most of us find food pleasurable and trying new foods or cafes is a new experience we can share with others.
Symptoms and natural treatments of indigestionIndigestion or heartburn can happen when your body has trouble digesting food. Anyone can get it on occasion, or it can be an ongoing problem. Heartburn is especially prominent in December with so many holidays accompanied with delicious foods, that prompt us to overindulge.
While acid reflux is a common phenomenon, not all symptoms of it, are very obvious.
When heartburn happens, for instance due to smoking, alcohol, medication, carbonated drinks or some foods that are difficult to process (spices, fats, acids, fiber) may cause a valve-like stomach muscle to loosen, allowing stomach acid to backwash into the esophagus. This exposes sensitive tissue in the chest to stomach acids, causing painful symptoms.
Common symptoms of reflux are a burning feeling in your chest or stomach, burping, bloating, gurgling stomach, acid reflux, heartburn, nausea or even vomiting.
Problems in your GI tract or other health issues also can cause indigestion. These include:
- acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux (GER), or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): A reaction to food and drink where contents come back up from your stomach. The acid can come up into your esophagus, the tube-like organ connecting your mouth and stomach. Acid reflux also can produce vomiting. This condition causes heartburn because of the high acid contents.
- irritable bowel syndrome: a disorder that affects your intestines. Symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea.
- infection: a bacterial infection from Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) can cause indigestion.
- gastroparesis: A condition that affects digestion. If muscles in your GI tract stop working, your body slows down or stops the movement of food. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, bloating, and acid reflux.
- ulcer: A sore on the lining of your stomach (peptic ulcer), small intestine, or esophagus.
- gastritis: Inflammation of your stomach lining.
- stomach cancer: This is a rare condition, but indigestion can be one of its signs.
Why does stress make us sick more easily?Most diseases that we are dealing with nowadays are chronic diseases as a result of poor lifestyle choices that will only affect us later in life. However, we can get sick much sooner when exposed to chronic stress. How can this happen?
Stress is defined as a series of events, starting with a stimulus leading to a stress response known as the 'fight-or-flight' reaction that can affect many body systems.
Physical or physiological stress is mostly short-lived, while psychological or emotional stress can last for a very long time.

How to get in enough fluids and not feel embarassedWhomever is interested in health and fitness will have been told countless times to drink enough fluids to stay healthy!
What they never tell you, is how to combine drinking plenty fluids with being out and about on the road or stuck in a place where you aren't allowed to take potty breaks! Yikes!
I can't even begin to tell you the amount of times when I was cycling some event and needing to pee so badly, but not find a bush to hide behind. Or, when I did see one, already have gone past it, and of course you never ever turn around, but pedal onwards.
Oh, how I envied my shameless male companions, who simply could get off at a tree and empty their bladder.
But even men encounter a problem when it comes to what is called, doing a 'number 2'.
