GI Advantage contains a comprehensive combination of efficaciously dosed ingredients to support your gastrointestinal system for optimal health and digestion! We start with L-Glutamine, the most abundant amino acid in the body and the preferred fuel source of the gut. All tissue in the body can synthesize Glutamine, but in times of metabolic stress, there is a need for Glutamine supplementation.
The Galactoarabinan found in GI Advantage is a type of fiber that is a great prebiotic that feeds the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in the gut. We added Aloe Vera to keep your GI tract in pH balance and decrease the production of yeast. By feeding and creating a beneficial environment, the probiotics can increase in population and strengthen the immune system. We also included Dimethylglycine, which will give you extra protection from infections and environmental stresses, further strengthening your immune system.
Slippery Elm Bark and Marshmallow Root, which are mucilaginous (thick and gluey) substances, are included because they are soothing to the digestive tract. Add in Licorice Root's ability to reduce inflammation of the mucus membranes, and you are able to soothe the stomach lining and support tissue, so it can regenerate.
The mineral Zinc is well-known for its ability to repair tissue; however, it moves through the GI tract very quickly, causing irritation along the way. Chelating, or combining Zinc with the amino acid, Carnosine, slows down Zinc's movement through the system and eliminates the irritation. Zinc is then able to repair the stomach and intestinal tissue and promote healthy mucus secretions from stomach cells.
GI Advantage will help alleviate gas, bloat, heartburn, upset stomach, leaky gut, or any other inflammation symptom of the GI tract ...while also supporting your digestive health and increasing your immune system function! *
