|What Is It?
GI Fortify is a blend of high-impact fiber, herbs and nutrients, providing far-reaching support for gastrointestinal function and occasional constipation. By combining psyllium with Nutra-Flax high-lignan flax seed, glutamine, DGL Plus and triphala, this formula is designed to promote function, microflora balance, integrity, tone, comfort, cellular health and detoxification of the gastrointestinal tract.*
Uses For G.I. Fortify
GI Motility: Psyllium, Plantago indica or blond psyllium, is grown primarily in India, Europe and the United States and is a valued source of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber increases stool volume when taken with appropriate amounts of water, supporting larger and softer stools for healthy bowel movements. As the bulk moves through the intestine, it helps to collect and eliminate other waste and toxins from the intestinal walls. This helps to
minimize the amount of exposure of the gastrointestinal tract to toxins. Nutra-Flax provides a source of lignans,
fatty acids, and both soluble and insoluble fibers,
enhancing the gut health potential of this complex. Triphala, literally meaning three fruits, is a standardized blend of three fruit extracts in equal proportions, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia belerica, and Emblica officinalis. It is an Ayurvedic blend prized for supporting intestinal
detoxification and occasional constipation. Triphala has a long traditional history of use for bowel tonification
and consists of various nutritive compounds, including
antioxidants, tannins and polyphenols.*
GI Integrity: l-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. In times of stress or increased metabolic demand, glutamine is an especially important source of energy for the GI tract. In the gut, glutamine maintains healthy integrity of the intestinal tract and enhances the protective mucosal lining. This helps to ensure proper
nutrient utilization and absorption while limiting the
amount of toxins that pass through the intestinal barrier.*
GI Cell Health: Soluble fiber is fermented in the large intestines by intestinal microflora, producing short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs are extremely important
energy sources for the colon and have protective effects for healthy colon cell function. Furthermore, SCFAs keep the intestinal environment acidic, providing optimal
conditions for lactobacillus and other beneficial bacteria to thrive. The fiber content of flax seed provides
additional support for healthy intestinal function,
microflora balance, and overall colon health. The ability
of lignans to support colon cell health has been reported
in numerous studies and may be due in part to
antioxidant protection and the ability to promote healthy
beta-glucuronidase activity and detoxification.*
GI Comfort: GI Fortify contains a synergistic combination
of deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), aloe, slippery elm and marshmallow root that enhances the protective mucous lining throughout the gastrointestinal tract, promoting gut integrity and providing a soothing effect.*
