How It Works
Our “digestive tract (is) lined with cells specialized for the digestion of food and absorption of the nutrient molecules released by the digestion. These two activities are hard to carry on at the same time, as the processes that digest food in the lumen of the gut are liable also to digest the lining of the gut itself, including the cells that absorb the nutrients. The gut uses several strategies to solve the problem…(including that) the whole lining of the stomach and intestine is continually renewed and replaced by freshly generated cells, with a turnover time of a week or less”(Alberts, B. et al., 2002).
Two of the main nutrients necessary to rebuild the intestinal lining are L-Glutamine and N-acetyl glucosamine. By providing the body with a therapeutic dose of L-Glutamine as well as N-Acetyl-Glucosamine, Intestinal Therapy works to heal the damaged areas of the intestinal tract lining. It also includes ingredients to soothe the intestinal tract lining as well as ingredients to help to reduce inflammation, and to reduce diarrhea.
“A healthy intestinal lining helps determine the overall health of an individual. It plays a critical role in the absorption of beneficial nutrients and the blockage of unwanted compounds in the bloodstream”. – Dr. Leonard Smith, M.D, Gastrointestinal Specialist.
