Glutagenics® features three key ingredients--glutamine, deglycyrrhizinized licorice (DGL), and aloe--that are designed to support the integrity and healthy function of the gastrointestinal lining. A healthy gastrointestinal lining is essential for proper digestion, immune function, and overall health. Glutagenics supplies: (bullet) 3.5 grams of the amino acid glutamine, which provides both a source of fuel and precursors for growth to the rapidly dividing cells of the intestinal lining. (bullet) A concentrated extract of DGL to support gastrointestinal health. (bullet) A premium extract of aloe leaft containing polysaccharides to support a healthy intestinal lining. (bullet) Natural flavors for improved taste. The licorice in Glutagenics has been processed to remove glycyrrhizin, which has been associated with sodium and water retention. In addition, a proprietary extraction process removes the bitter principles of aloe to prevent a laxative effect.
