Gastro Plus promotes rejuvenation of the intestinal mucosa, proper intestinal ability (appropriate for intestinal hyperpermeability), provides healing of ulceration and inflammation, and promotes regularity and healthy bowel function. The lining of the gut must have proper permeability and integrity so it can not only absorb nutrients, but also prevent toxins, allergens and microbes from gaining access to the blood stream. Maintaining gut health is the key to maintaining overall wellness. Gastro Plus is available in capsule and powder form. The powder, which is sweetened with xylitol, can be mixed into any beverage or functional food powder and can be used as part of a health program for achieving optimal GI health and regularity.
8 oz. powder
Gastro Plus contains a blend of ingredients that offer comprehensive support for optimum gastrointestinal (GI) health and function. Gastrointestinal, or ‘gut’ health, is very important to a person’s overall health and well-being. Although the process of digestion begins in the mouth, it is within the gut where the absorption of nutrients must take place. The lining of the gut must have proper permeability and integrity so that it can absorb nutrients and prevent toxins, allergens and microbes from gaining access to the bloodstream. Therefore, it is critical to our overall health to support the health of the intestinal mucosa.
• Rejuvenates intestinal mucosal health • Promotes proper intestinal function • Supports a healthy inflammatory response • Promotes regularity and healthy bowel function
L-Glutamine – one of the most commonly used amino acids in the body for supporting the health of tissues -particularly the tissues within the gut. It is essential for maintaining proper intestinal permeability and the healthy functioning of the lining of the intestines.
MSM – sulfur-containing compound that supports a healthy inflammatory response as well as the structure, integrity and permeability of cell walls
N-Acetyl Glucosamine – compound that aids in the production of healthsupportive structures for the cells in the intestinal lining
DGL, Slippery Elm, Marshmallow, Chamomile, Okra Extract and Cat’s Claw – herbs which provide comprehensive enhancement of gut function by coating and soothing the intestinal lining; they also help relax the intestines, which aids in alleviating occasional cramping
Aloe Vera – promotes the growth of a variety of ‘good’ bacteria in the gut. Fostering the growth of this ‘good’ bacteria also helps promote overall health.
Quercetin – highly concentrated bioflavonoid found in citrus fruits, red wine, and tea which supports a healthy inflammatory response by stabilizing intestinal cells and can also improve overall tissue health
Mucin – classified as a glycoprotein -a protein with a carbohydrate group attached to it; mucin is normally secreted by the intestinal cells and can foster overall integrity of the gut
Prune Powder and Citrus Pectin – aid in bowel regularity
