Zinc carnosine is included in this formulation due to its impressive mucosal-protective and anti-ulcerative properties, including the ability to protect the intestinal lining against damage due to indomethacin and other strong anti-inflammatory medications often associated with intestinal mucosal damage.
Glutamine is the most important nutritional substance for healthy intestinal cells. It is one of the most commonly used amino acids in the body to repair tissues, particularly high turnover tissue such as the epithelial cells of the intestinal lining.
It is essential in maintaining proper intestinal permeability and avoiding “leaky gut syndrome.”
MSM and Quercetin
These anti-inflammatory substances can reduce the chronic inflammation which is often the reason why the intestinal lining becomes damaged and “leaky.”
Quercetin can also provide direct anti-inflammatory action by stabilizing intestinal mast cells and can improve tissue health through its antioxidant functions.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine aids in the production of health supportive structures for the cells of the intestinal lining.
DGL, Slippery Elm, Marshmallow, Chamomile, Okra, and Cat’s Claw
These mucilaginous and relaxing herbs can provide comprehensive enhancement of intestinal function by coating and soothing the intestinal lining, promoting the healing of ulcers and inflamed tissue, and reducing cramping by relaxing the intestines.
Mucin can serve to coat the intestinal lining and to neutralize intestinal antigens, along with sIgA, reducing the inflammation and tissue damage caused by food allergy, intestinal infection, and dysbiosis.
Prune Powder and Citrus Pectin
These two ingredients are included to safely aid in regularity without the caustic and damaging effects of commonly used herbal laxatives such as Cassia marilandica (senna) and Rhamnus purshiana (cascara sagrada).
