Description

G.I. Support Ultra is the most advanced formula on the market today for optimal gastrointestinal health. The comprehensive formulation has been designed to support gut health, soothe the digestive tract lining, promote regularity, microbial balance and support proper immune function.

FUNCTIONS

L-Glutamine, the most abundant free form amino acid in the body, is very important for maintaining gastrointestinal and stimulated immune cell functioning. It is an important transporter of nitrogen in the body and therefore is vital in wound healing. L-Glutamine serves to fuel intestinal cells and maintain villi particularly during periods of physiological stress.

Arabinogalactan, a polysaccharide derived from the Larch tree, contributes fermentable fiber to this formula in addition to having immune-stimulatory properties. It minimizes ammonia synthesis and absorption, enhances production of short chain fatty acids and increases the gut microflora population.

Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) Root (DGL) is a concentrated extract that has been processed to remove glycyrrhizin, thus eliminating any risk of licorice-associated side effects. It is anti-inflammatory, antispasmotic and has laxative and soothing effects. Aspirin-induced mucosal damage has been shown to be reduced by administration of DGL.

Aloe Leaf Extract, used for thousands of years, is perhaps most well-known for healing of damaged epithelial tissue, including the bowel lining. Despite the lack of scientific published studies there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that aloe vera helps inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. In some individuals it may increase G.I. transit time, improve protein digestion and absorption, increase stool bulk and normalize stool bacteria where high levels of yeasts previously existed.

To complete this unique formulation, N-Acetyl

Glucosamine helps to support the integrity of the mucosal lining and Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) Bark serves to reduce bowel transit time, absorb bowel toxins, increase fecal bulk and enhance beneficial bacteria in the gut. Finally, Zinc Carnosine is included to stabilize small bowel integrity, stimulate gut repair processes and help minimize free radical damage to gastric mucosal cells.

INDICATIONS

G.I. Support Ultra may be a useful dietary supplement for those individuals wishing to support G.I. Tract Health and Function.
