Uses For G.I. Fortify
GI Motility: Psyllium, Plantago indica or blond psyllium, is grown primarily in India, Europe and the United States and is a valued source of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber increases stool volume when taken with appropriate amounts of water, supporting larger and softer stools for healthy bowel movements. As the bulk moves through the intestine, it helps to collect and eliminate other waste and toxins from the intestinal walls. This helps to minimize the amount of exposure of the gastrointestinal tract to toxins.
Nutra- Flax provides a source of lignans, fatty acids, and both soluble and insoluble fibers, enhancing the gut health potential of this complex. Triphala, literally meaning "three fruits", is a standardized blend of three fruit extracts in equal proportions, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia belerica, and Emblica officinalis. It is an Ayurvedic blend prized for supporting intestinal detoxification and occasional constipation. Triphala has a long traditional history of use for bowel tonification and consists of various nutritive compounds, including antioxidants, tannins and polyphenols.*
GI Integrity: l-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. In times of stress or increased metabolic demand, glutamine is an especially important source of energy for the GI tract. In the gut, glutamine maintains healthy integrity of the intestinal tract and enhances the protective mucosal lining. This helps to ensure proper nutrient utilization and absorption while limiting the amount of toxins that pass through the intestinal barrier.*
GI Cell Health: Soluble fiber is fermented in the large intestines by intestinal microflora, producing short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs are extremely important energy sources for the colon and have protective effects for healthy colon cell function. Furthermore, SCFAs keep the intestinal environment acidic, providing optimal conditions for lactobacillus and other beneficial bacteria to thrive. The fiber content of flax seed provides additional support for healthy intestinal function, microflora balance, and overall colon health. The ability of lignans to support colon cell health has been reported in numerous studies and may be due in part to antioxidant protection and the ability to promote healthy beta-glucuronidase activity and detoxification.*
GI Comfort: GI Fortify contains a synergistic combination of deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), unripe plantain banana, slippery elm and marshmallow root that enhances the protective mucous lining throughout the gastrointestinal tract, promoting gut integrity and providing a soothing effect.*
