Gut Food and Repair is a superior and intelligent product that is a unique synthesis of researched prebiotics, herbals and nutriceuticals designed to heal and maintain a healthy intestinal mucosa. Formulated by a Integrative Physician with Degrees in both Eastern and Western medicine, this formulation accomplishes what other companies and physicians are trying to achieve with 2 or 3 separate products. The trademarked prebiotics, which include Actazin, Livaux and Preticx, have been shown in multiple studies to promote the healthy bacteria that are often deficient in patients suffering from IBS, IBD (Crohn's and Colitis), Leaky Gut( Intestinal Permeability), SIBO, Obesity, Autoimmune Disorder, Fibromyalgia, Bipolar disorder, Depression and many more. Mixes easily with your favorite drink, smoothie or juice.BENEFITS:
Research shows that colostrum can restore a leaky gut lining to normal permeability levels., Bovine colostrum can also restore the damage caused by anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to the gut lining. In addition, The immunoglobulins in colostrum are especially impressive at combating gut pathogens, including H. pylori, E. coli and protozoan parasites and amoebas.,, Antimicrobial effects are likely due to the presence of the antibody (immunoglobulin) complement system
Glutamine, the most abundant free amino acid in the human body, is a major substrate utilized by intestinal cells. The roles of glutamine in intestinal physiology and management of multiple intestinal diseases have been reported. In gut physiology, glutamine promotes enterocyte proliferation, regulates tight junction proteins, suppresses pro-inflammatory signaling pathways, and protects cells against apoptosis and cellular stresses during normal and pathologic conditions. As glutamine stores are depleted during severe metabolic stress including trauma, sepsis, and inflammatory bowel diseases, glutamine supplementation has been examined in patients to improve their clinical outcomes.
Slippery elm, or Ulmus rubra, is a tree native to the central and eastern United States and Ontario, Canada.
when the bark is mixed with water, it generates a sticky material known as mucilage, which is therapeutic and soothing to anything it touches.
Slippery elm bark is a demulcent. This means that it is capable of soothing the lining of the stomach and intestines and reducing irritation. Demulcents are sometimes referred to as mucoprotective agents.
Recent studies have shown that slippery elm bark can help treat the symptoms associated with inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) is a perennial herb that’s native to Europe, Western Asia, and Northern Africa. It’s been used as a folk remedy for thousands of years to treat digestive, respiratory, and skin conditions.
Its healing powers are due in part to the mucilage it containsMarshmallow root may help soothe irritation and inflammation in the digestive tract.
An in vitro study from 2010 found that aqueous extracts and polysaccharides from marshmallow root can be used to treat irritated mucous membranes. Research suggests that the mucilage content creates a protective layer of tissue on the lining of the digestive tract. Marshmallow root may also stimulate the cells that support tissue regeneration.
PreticX™is a unique xylooligosaccharide (XOS) prebiotic ingredient that nourishes existing probiotic bacteria, favorably changing gut microflora composition to promote healthy, balanced immune system function, regularity and intestinal comfort. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study conducted by researchers at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), published in the Frontiers of Physiology1 which shows that daily doses as low as 1g of PreticX™, a XOS (xylooligosaccharide), significantly modified gut microbiota, helping to grow more species of good gut bacteria and reduce bad bacteria in both healthy people, and those who are over-weight with unhealthy blood glucose levels. Healthy gut bacteria are vital for Keeping the intestinal lining intact.
Actazin™ is a wholefood-based nutritional ingredient crafted from the nutrient-dense New Zealand green kiwifruit. Actazin™ was recently introduced to the marketplace to address the limitations of the existing digestive health ingredient options. Actazin™ consists of a variety of bioactive components including fiber and polyphenolics, contributing to its prebiotic activity, along with the kiwifruit-unique protein-digesting enzyme, actinidin Actazin® gently helps bowel regularity with both soluble and insoluble fibre. In-vitro trials show that Actazin® is also a prebiotic, which means it feeds good intestinal bacteria and may assist probiotic supplements
Livaux™ is a wholefood-based nutritional ingredient option, crafted from the nutrient-dense New Zealand gold kiwifruit. It consists of a variety of bioactive components including fiber and polyphenolics, contributing to its prebiotic activity. Research shows that it helps specific beneficial bacteria – Faecalibacterium prausnitzii (F. prau) – to flourish and recover. This is a desirable situation because F. prau activity increases the amount of butyrate in your body. Butyrate is an important short-chain fatty acid that’s used as an energy source for cells throughout the body, including the cells lining the large intestine. Prebiotics feed intestinal bacteria that produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFA). These nutrients fuel the intestinal mucosal cells that keep the lining of the gut intact and healthy. Low levels of F. prau are associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
