Glutamine, the most abundant free amino acid in the human body, is a source of fuel for the cells that line the intestine. In gut physiology, glutamine plays an important role in promoting cell production, preventing leaky gut, suppressing inflammation and protecting the overall health of the gastrointestinal tract. Glutamine stores are depleted during severe stress (such as a diet high in sugar and processed foods, caffeine and alcohol) and inflammatory bowel diseases, which is where a supplement like GastroThera can help.
GastroThera provides extensive support for the entire digestive tract. It contains glutamine, and acacia fiber, inulin and N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine. Acacia fiber and inulin serve as prebiotics, producing short chain fatty acids (SCFA) and providing fuel for the probiotic bacteria in the gut to flourish and colonise the intestines. This symbiotic partnership supports overall gut and immune function and aids digestion. They are a source of soluble fibres which help give the stool bulk and prevent constipation.
N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine helps chronic inflammatory bowel disease and IBS. It forms intestinal mucous secretions that protect intestinal tissues and help food pass through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This product is an excellent complement to multivitamin formulas to meet the high demands of the gut and immune system, which generally lack glutamine.
6 capsules daily or as directed by a healthcare professional. May be taken with food or between meals.
GastroThera can be taken regularly or periodically for nutritive support of GI function and is often used with probiotic supplementation.
