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.
