Quick Overview

    Product Description

    • Hypoallergenic
    • 60 Capsules

    DGL is well known for its ability to optimize mucus production by gastrointestinal mucosal cells and to stimulate healing in the GI tract. Licorice root preparations have been used for many years for the nutritional support of the stomach and duodenum. Glycyrrhizic acid is removed from the extract to prevent a rise in blood pressure observed in some individuals taking whole licorice root. Dried, unripe plantain banana powder (Musa paradisiaca) protects the gastroduodenal mucosa from irritating substances, and has been shown to speed healing of this sensitive tissue. The
    improvement in gastroduodenal mucosal resistance may be due to Musa’s ability to increase both mucosal thickness and the mucosal concentration of proteoglycans. Slippery elm bark (Ulmus fulva) and Marshmallow root (Althea officinalis) contain mucilaginous components that are very soothing to the digestive tract.

    For esophageal irritation and reflux, GI-Encap can be taken out of the capsule and mixed with warm water for a soothing tea.

    I love the product as I've used it before but sadly report that I did not receive your shipment of the GI-Encap! It's been four weeks since it was shipped.
