- Promotes healthy intestinal function.
- Assists in maintaining healthy intestinal permeability.
- While both products are useful for the entire intestinal tract, IRC powder ismore specific for the small intestine and IRC capsules for the large intestine.
- Use both together for comprehensive support for more difficult gastrointestinal patients.
INTESTINAL REPAIR COMPLEX (POWDER AND CAPSULES) is designed to assist in the repair and restoration of a normal, healthy GI mucosal lining. Soothing, anti-inflammatory extracts of mucilaginous herbs, amino acids, and enzymes make up the Intestinal Repair formula. These formulas are not designed to mask symptoms, but rather provide essential factors for the nutritional support and restoration of healthy GI structure and function.a
L-GLUTAMINE is the most abundant amino acid in the body. L-Glutamine is often used for organ repair and gastrointestinal tract nutritional support. Glutamine enhances the mass and strength of the intestine’s protective mucosal lining, reducing altered permeability issues that can lead to increased allergy and toxemia susceptibility.
N-ACETYL GLUCOSAMINE (NAG) is a carbohydrate used to make glycosaminoglycans needed for normal intestinal mucous production.
DEGLYCYRRHIZINATED LICORICE (DGL), like NAG, enhances normal mucous production to establish a healthy protective barrier. It has historically been used in treatments for indigestion, heartburn, and peptic ulcers. Licorice is a demulcent, which soothes and coats the digestive and urinary tracts. It contains flavonoids and chalcones, two important ingredients that help the digestive tract heal and are also potent antioxidants.
PLANT ENZYMES assist in the digestive process as it occurs in the brush border of the small intestine. These enzymes convert carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, grain and bean fibers, sugars) into their final digestive end products, thereby helping reduce issues of flatulence, bloating, and bowel toxemia.
