The colon (large intestine) is the site of the final parts of digestion with function including:
- Absorption of fluids to regulate body hydration levels.
- Processing of waste products from digested food ready for elimination.
It is also the site of the largest concentration of bacteria that form the gut microbiome. Many different species of bacteria reside within the colon and have beneficial functions within the digestive tract and throughout the body.
It is often thought the health of the colon reflects the physical and psychological health status throughout the body.
Nutrigold’s Colex capsule formulation contains L-glutamine (an amino acid that is used as fuel by cells lining the colon tract), Bifidobacteria bifidum (CUL-20) and lactis (CUL-34) species providing 1.25x109 (1.25 billion) Colony Forming Units (CFU) and a blend of natural botanicals including:

We believe supplements and all wellbeing products should use high quality, effective ingredients. We aim to sell products and choose brands that meet our personal standard for quality and ideally contain naturopathic and, where possible, organic ingredients.
The majority of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however we do stock some products like fish oils, etc. which means our full range is not vegetarian. We clearly identify these in the product listings.
Choosing Quality Supplements
We always look for products containing very high quality ingredients with good bioavailability (how well a product is utilised by the body).
All too often we see cheap supplements, which although they may have the required dosage of the active ingredients in terms of numbers listed, they may have a low bioavailability due to being more refined or combined with poor quality additional ingredients to form tablets, or even make them appear more appetising.
Additional ingredients in cheaper supplements are often unnecessary or impact the absorption of the supplement you take, so it is important not only to check the dosage of your chosen active ingredients, but also ensure any other ingredients are good for you, too. It is the additional ingredients that can often contain allergens or make a product non-vegan, for example.

Where possible we provide allergen information for each product listed on this website, but please also refer to the full ingredient list, labels and warnings on the product packaging before taking or using the supplements or products purchased.
The product and ingredient information provided is sourced from the manufacturers and suppliers, and taken from their websites and product packaging.
We strive to ensure that the content on our website and product listings is correct, however we do rely on suppliers informing us of product changes so that the website can be updated accordingly.
