GASTRIC REPAIR COMPLEX is a unique and effective combination product for the support of upper gastrointestinal function and comfort. When the sphincterbetween the esophagus and stomach becomes weak, the result can be a painful and irritating reflux of acid into the esophagus.*Many products sold today for GI disorders act to block hydrochloric acid production or neutralize it.The problem with this approach is the inhibition of normal digestion and assimilation of protein, fat, carbohydrate, B vitamins, and minerals. Blocking hydrochloric acid also increases the risk of Helicobacter pylori infection of the stomach and or intestinal dysbiosis. Intestinal dysbiosis occurs when the ideal balance of healthy bacteria is disrupted by the growth of bacteria, yeast, and other intestinal pathogens. The stomach normally functions to reduce entrance of these organisms through the sterilizing effects of its hydrochloric acid output. When hydrochloric acid is blocked or neutralized, this protection is lost and pathogens find easy entrance into the digestive system. Gastric Repair Complex enhances the development of normal protective mucosal barriers.
DEGLYCYRRHIZINATED LICORICE (DGL) (GLYCYRRHIZA GLABRA) has been shown to increase the mass, quality and production of gastric/duodenal mucous. This has the beneficial effect of promoting healing of inflamed tissues. Studies have shown that DGL enhances replication of goblet cells in the stomach lining, thus facilitating an enhanced protective mucosal output. DGL does not havethe negative side effects of sodium retention, fluid retention, and increased blood pressure that standard licorice products have. In controlled clinical trials, treatment with DGL has been shown to be as effective as common antihistamine-2 blockers in reducing symptoms associated with gastric ulcers.
