Beyond soft candy, licorice root has a prominent place in traditional Chinese medicine and has been used both to support glandular function and as a general tonic. It is associated with immune system balance and provides support to the liver. Its properties extend to soothing gastrointestinal issues and stomach ulcers, as it expedites stomach lining repair.

KEB Enterprises founder and general partner Kenneth Brailsford brings a range of entrepreneurial experience to his leadership role. The co-founder and former CEO of Nature’s Sunshine, Kenneth Brailsford led the nutrition supplement company that became the first producer of encapsulated herbs worldwide.

Herbal supplements, sometimes called botanicals, are generally safe dietary supplements that may help with common ailments like headaches, low mood, common colds, and digestion. People have used botanicals for medicinal purposes for many generations, and these supplements do not have to go through the same process as other FDA approved medicines. In general, they are cheaper and easier to access than prescription medications and may not have the same negative side effects as harsher medicines, such as certain antibiotics.

Raw garlic, ginger root, and turmeric are all plants that have naturally occurring anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Other popular herb supplements include ginseng, which may help address sexual dysfunction, feverfew, which can be used to ease menstrual pain, and St. John’s wort, which may help elevate mood levels.

Flora and Nutrition – Prebiotics?

Kenneth Brailsford, a network marketing and nutritional supplement pioneer, is the founder of Zija International. His 35-year career in the nutritional supplement industry has yielded innovations such as marketing herbs via capsules. Kenneth Brailsford, in conjuction with Zija, offers his customers the health benefits of Moringa, as well as other supplements to support intestinal flora.

Prebiotic supplements support the existence of intestinal flora in an age when processed foods and widespread use of antibiotics reduce their strength and numbers. Beneficial flora is bacteria within the digestive system that promotes the strength of the immune system and facilitates proper absorption of nutrients. This flora cannot be digested or absorbed by the human body; in fact, it needs nutrients not utilized by the body. Food manufacturers often remove these nutrients from processed food in order to provide increased shelf life.

Chicory root is a vital source of flora nutrition, as it contains the compound inulin. According to numerous studies, this compound aids digestion, improves nutrient absorption, and promotes flora health.
