Potter's Herbals, a tried and trusted

producer of licensed herbal medicines,

reveals that dieting can cause all sorts of

hurdles for our digestive health, causing

symptoms ranging from indigestion to

bloating. In a survey conducted among

2,000 men and women showed that a

significant number of us have tried lots

of different diets with 80% of women

admitting to trying some diet versus 56%

of men. Notable, however, was that

almost half (45%) complained that diets

caused digestive woes. This appears

to be a particular issue for those aged

25-34 with 55% stating it has caused

them digestive issues. Almost half of

those surveyed thought their digestive

health affected their weight, with one in

five tending to gain weight and one in ten

of retaining fluid.

Dr Chris Etheridge from the Henry

Potter Advisory Committee, an expert

health panel for Potter's Herbals,

commented on the survey results saying,

"It is so important to be aware that our

digestive health can affect our weight,

with so many of us apparently unable

to maintain our weight at a healthy level.

Addressing our digestive health is an

important part of looking after ourselves,

alongside diet and physical activity for

reaching a healthy BMI. Research shows

how the gastrointestinal tract contributes

several peptides that act as signals in

metabolic pathways influencing energy

balance and hence body weight. Keeping

our digestive health in tip-top condition is

vital for weight management as well as

our overall health."

Herbs such as senna, psyllium,

dandelion, peppermint, fennel and

buckthorn have been used for centuries

to help digestive health and are used in

the four different remedies available in

Potter's Herbals digestive health range.

They can be found at Holland & Barrett,

Boots, and all good health food stores.
