Right for me?
This product was designed to reduce abdominal bloating caused by gas or digestive problems. Abdominal bloating not only looks bad but can also cause physical discomfort. Bloating is a condition you can avoid pretty easily by enhancing the intestinal walls and making them more impermeable to incompletely digested proteins.
A single layer of epithelial cells is all that separates your bloodstream from the food contents of your intestines. The intestines are the largest mucosal barrier between the environment and your body. The small intestine has the crucial role of allowing nutrients inside the body while keeping bacteria & toxins out. The tight junctions of the intestinal wall is a dynamic structure that is responsible for this task. Breaks in these tight junctions cause increased intestinal permeability, commonly referred to as "leaky gut," and can result in the absorption of incompletely digested protein and antigens that over stimulate the immune system through the bloodstream.
This product may be right for you if you suspect you have bloating after meals and snacks.
This formula provides synergistic nutrients and extracts that aid in healing the intestinal walls. May be useful in healing leaky gut syndrome or other intestinal and gastrointestinal disorders.
This product works best when also combined with good nutrition and lifestyle changes. Good digestion relies on the digestive enzymes, natural substances necessary for transforming food into muscle and bone. Our bodies contain more than 3,000 different kinds of enzymes, and they are located in each body system. Most digestive enzymes work by breaking something down, such as food. The digestive process starts with enzymes in our saliva, and once food reaches the pancreas, protease enzymes digest proteins while lipases work on fats. Refined food, stress and aging can affect the body’s enzyme production and activity, resulting in digestive problems. The best way to get enzymes is from raw fruits and vegetables and practicing stress-reduction techniques.
