This is great for Gut Healing
I normally recommend several supplements along with a healing anti-inflammatory diet. This supplements combines all of my favorites into one easy-to-take powder.
GlutaShield is designed to promote the health and barrier function of the gastrointestinal lining.
• Supports GI Barrier Health and Integrity
• Maintains Healthy Inflammatory Balance and Healthy Gut Epithelium
• Provides Concentrated Nutrition for GI Cells
- The purpose of the epithelium is to allow the digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients while keeping unwanted toxins, microbes and food particles from passing directly into the body. 4 grams of L-Glutamine, which serves as nutrition for the gut lining.
Ingredients in Glutashield
400mg of Deglycyrrhized Licorice Root Extract (DGL). DGL is a form of licorice root that has been specially processed to contain only biologically active flavonoids, without glycyrrhizin. This allows for higher dosing of the active ingredient, which helps maintain a healthy mucosal surface. Traditionally used to support GI-related complaints, DGL has been shown to promote bacterial balance, protect the intestinal lining, and maintain normal inflammatory balance.
75 mg of Aloe Vera Leaf Gel Extract. A demulcent that has been used throughout history, aloe vera has long been known to maintain normal inflammatory balance. Studies have shown aloe vera is specifically beneficial to the gastric mucosa, in part by its ability to balance stomach acid levels and promote healthy mucus production.
L-Glutamine is a main source of fuel for the cells of the small intestines and essential to tissue repair throughout the body. When the body is under stress, L-glutamine has been shown to become a conditionally essential amino acid for the regeneration and protection of a healthy mucosal barrier. It is used to repair the gut and intestinal lining.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine – NAG. N-acetyl glucosamine is the acetylated form of glucosamine. It is a mucin precursor and has been shown to increase the production of mucus within the GI tract. N-acetyl Glucosamine is an essential building block of the gut lining and urinary tract lining and helps protect the lining of the stomach and intestines. Study: “NAG administration can alleviate IBD-related inflammation by increasing glycosaminoglycan synthesis, which would result in more glycosaminoglycan attachments to the protective mucin layer.” [source]
Zinc.Zinc is an essential mineral widely recognized for its role in gut and immune health. Zinc has been shown to strengthen GI barrier function by supporting the structure of tight junctions.
GlutaShield is available in delicious chocolate and vanilla flavors.
Mix 1 scoop (6.9 grams) of GlutaShield with water or the beverage of your choice, once daily or as recommended by your health care professional.
