Key Ingredients and their benefits.
Licorice has a long history of use in Chinese, Ayurvedic, and European traditional medicines where it is valued for its ability to soothe the mucous membranes of the body. Licorice has been shown to modulate healthy inflammatory response in the gastrointestinal system, as well as promote a healthy stomach microbiome. Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice is a form of Licorice that enhances intestinal function by coating and soothing the intestinal lining.
Glutamine (as Magnesium Glycyl Glutamine Chelate)
Glutamine is an amino acid that is critical for healthy digestive system function. A vital nutrient utilized by intestinal mucosal cells, Glutamine supports the natural repair processes in the epithelial and mucosal lining, and regulates intestinal barrier function to encourage proper gut permeability. Healthy gut permeability is not only critical for nutrient absorption, but also for deterring harmful compounds from entering the blood stream.
Mastic gum is the exudate of Pistacia lentiscus, the mastic tree, which is native to the Greek Island Chios in the Aegean Sea. For centuries, Mastic gum has been highly valued for its ability to promote intestinal and digestive health. Mastic gum encourages healthy microbial balance within the gut and supports the natural healing process in gastric and oral mucosa.
Chamomile is a traditional herbal known for its relaxing influence on the nervous system. It is noted for its ability to support healthy digestion and calm mild stomach upset related to nervousness. Chamomile has been shown to promote healthy function of gastric mucosa.
Propolis is a unique, somewhat waxy compound made by bees from plant material they collect and use as a sealant to protect the hive. Propolis is recognized for its ability to promote healthy microbial balance, modulate healthy inflammatory response, and support the body’s natural healing process by encouraging re-epithelization.
Zinc, a biologically-essential trace mineral, is vital for almost all physiological processes. Zinc Carnosine is found to enhance gastrointestinal epithelial barrier function and promote mucosal health and function. It also provides antioxidant activity, which contributes to its ability to benefit gastric health.
