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. GI Restore includes a high dose of L-glutamine (4 g), which serves as nutrition for the gut lining. It provides 400 mg of deglycyrrhized licorice root extract (DGL) and 75 mg of aloe vera extract, both of which protect and promote the health of the gut mucosa. N-acetyl glucosamine and zinc boost GI integrity.
- Supports GI Barrier Health and Integrity
- Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance and Healthy Gut Epithelium
- Provides Concentrated Nutrition for GI Cells
Mix 1 scoop (6.4 grams) of GI Restore with 8-10 ounces of the beverage of your choice to the desired thickness, once daily or as recommended by your health care professional.
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.
Aloe Vera Leaf Gel Extract
A demulcent that has been used throughout history, aloe vera has long been known to maintain normal inflammatory balance.
L-glutamine is a main source of fuel for the cells of the small intestines and essential to tissue repair throughout the body.
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.
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.
