SUPPORTS INTESTINAL BARRIER FUNCTION AND DIGESTIVE HEALTH.‡
This product is a blend of high-impact fiber, herbs and nutrients, supporting overall gastrointestinal function and occasional
constipation. Psyllium is a valued source of soluble fiber, helping to promote larger and softer stools for healthy bowel movement
frequency. It is fermented in the intestines, producing short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that provide an energy source for the colon to
maintain healthy colon cell function and promote beneficial microflora. Flaxseed provides a source of lignans, fatty acids, and both soluble
and insoluble fibers, enhancing the gut health potential of this complex. In times of stress or increased metabolic demand, glutamine
is an especially important source of energy for the G.I. tract. It also maintains gut integrity and enhances the protective mucosal lining
to ensure proper nutrient utilization while limiting the amount of toxins that pass through the intestinal barrier. G.I. Fortify‡ provides a
combination of deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), aloe, slippery elm and marshmallow root to support gut integrity and provide a soothing
effect. Triphala is a standardized blend of three fruit extracts, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia belerica, and Emblica officinalis. It is
an Ayurvedic blend prized for supporting intestinal detoxification, occasional constipation, and overall colon health.‡
Dr. W's Comments: A great digestive system support for the stomach (and the rest of the GI tract) that goes a bit further than the Heartburn Essentials. In addition to all the good things in Heartburn Essentials (and more of it since it’s a powder you can put more in), there is l-glutamine, the amino acid that the cells that line the intestines and immune system use as a fuel and to help them proliferate in healthy ways.
Licorice root has so many positive benefits. Here it is helpful to cut down on inflammatory issues in the colon and stomach; it helps adrenal and mental stress and so much more. Still, some say it is best not to take licorice for months at a time – it can affect your blood’s potassium levels; give your body a few weeks off of it every 2-3 months.
