COMPREHENSIVE NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT FOR THE RESTORATION OF A HEALTHY GASTROINTESTINAL LINING

- Promotes healthy intestinal function
- Assists in maintaining healthy intestinal permeability
- While both products are useful for the entire intestinal tract, IRC powder is more specific for the small intestine and IRC capsules for the large intestine
- Use both together for comprehensive support for more difficult gastrointestinal patients

INTESTINAL REPAIR COMPLEX (POWDER AND CAPSULES) is designed to assist in the repair and restoration of a normal, healthy GI mucosal lining. Soothing, anti-inflammatory extracts of mucilaginous herbs, amino acids, and enzymes make up the Intestinal Repair formula. These formulas are not designed to mask symptoms, but rather to provide essential factors for the nutritional support and restoration of healthy GI structure and function.

L-GLUTAMINE is the most abundant amino acid in the body. L-Glutamine is often used for organ repair and gastrointestinal tract nutritional support. Glutamine enhances the mass and strength of the intestine’s protective mucosal lining, reducing altered permeability issues that can lead to increased allergy and toxemia susceptibility.

N-ACETYL GLUCOSAMINE (NAG) is a carbohydrate used to make glycosaminoglycans needed for normal intestinal mucous production.

DEGLYCYRRHIZINATED LICORICE (DGL), like NAG, enhances normal mucous production to establish a healthy protective barrier. It has historically been used in treatments for indigestion, heartburn, and peptic ulcers. Licorice is a demulcent, which soothes and coats the digestive and urinary tracts. It contains flavonoids and chalcones, two important ingredients that help the digestive tract to heal and are also potent antioxidants.

PLANT ENZYMES assist in the digestive process as it occurs in the brush border of the small intestine. These enzymes convert carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, grain and bean fibers, sugars) into their final digestive end products, thereby helping to reduce issues of flatulence, bloating, and bowel toxemia.

ALOE LEAF EXTRACT has been in use for centuries both topically and orally. It has remarkable anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and bowel-moving properties. Aloe has the ability to be absorbed deep into injured tissue and promotes repair and structural integrity.

MSM (METHYL SULFONYL METHANE) is an organic sulfur compound present naturally in the human body. MSM is concentrated in connective tissues. In Intestinal Repair Complex, MSM is included to promote structural repair and integrity.

SLIPPERY ELM, OKRA, CAT’S CLAW, AND MARSHMALLOW are mucilaginous herbs with a long history of use in gastrointestinal complaints. They act to coat and soothe inflamed, injured tissues. Like DGL and L-glutamine, they enhance normal mucosal secretions, which are absolutely necessary for healthy structure and function.

VITAMINS A and E, CALCIUM FOLINATE, AND ZINC participate in beneficial antioxidant functions to reduce oxidative stress in the cellular lining of the gut. In this manner they assist in the overall repair process. Some of the gut barrier functions, such as secretory IgA secretion, may be enhanced by these beneficial nutrients.

BUTYRIC ACID is a short chain fatty acid produced by the anaerobic bacteria in the colon through fermentation of fiber and starch. Colonic epithelial cells use butyric acid as their major fuel source. As such, butyric acid enhances the regeneration of colonic epithelial cells and assists in repair of damaged epithelial cells. Butyric acid levels are often measured in stool analysis as a screen for risk of colon cancer, with low levels indicating higher risk. ... Click here to continue reading
