Gut Repair has been formulated to help:
- Protect and maintain gut lining integrity (leaky gut)
- Restore good gut bacteria
- Reduce the occurrence & relieve the symptoms of traveller’s diarrhoea
- Reduce diarrhoea associated with antibiotic use
- Soothe and calm gut irritation
- Relieve abdominal bloating
- Fight candida overgrowth
- Aid nutrient breakdown and absorption
- Support healthy blood sugar balance
- Support gut immune function
- Assist with heavy metal detoxification
Glutamine is an amino acid widely recognized for its role in the gut. It protects the structural integrity of the gut lining, reducing permeability and helping to heal a leaky gut. Glutamine is a preferred energy source for the intestinal mucosal cells and supports gut immune function. The body requires glutamine for the synthesis of your master antioxidant ‘glutathione’ as well as multiple neurotransmitters including glutamate and GABA.
Saccharomyces Boulardii (Probiotic)
Saccharomyces boulardii (SB) is a non-pathogenic, non-colonising and shelf-stable probiotic yeast. It can survive stomach acid and bile en-route to your intestines and does not require refrigeration to maintain stability. SB has been clinically shown to help neutralize bacterial toxins, increase short-chain fatty acids, and improve gut barrier function. It has also demonstrated the ability to modulate gut immunity, reduce pro-inflammatory responses, and kill Candida.
Saccharomyces boulardii (SB) supports a healthy gut microbiome by fertilizing friendly bacteria and crowding out the bad ones. Multiple clinical trials have also demonstrated SB’s ability to reduce the incidence of both antibiotic-associated and traveler’s diarrhea, making Gut Repair an ideal travel partner and supplement to take in conjunction with antibiotics.
Gut Repair contains a clinically therapeutic dose of 5 Billion CFU with every 10-gram serve.
Vitafibre™ – Tapioca Root (Prebiotic)
Vitafibre is a premium isomaltooligosaccharide (IMO) prebiotic fiber, sourced from the root of the tapioca plant. Prebiotics support the health of the gut microbiome by helping to promote friendly bacteria growth. A prebiotic is a non-digestible carbohydrate that can travel through the small intestine to be fermented in the large colon. This fermentation process selectively feeds friendly bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species, stimulating their growth and producing short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate.
Butyrate is a preferred energy source of the mucosal cells that line your gut wall, contributing to gut barrier maintenance and supporting immune function. Short-chain fatty acids are also responsible for altering gut PH, creating a more acidic environment that can improve resistance to pathogenic organisms.
Organic Green Banana Resistant Starch (Prebiotic)
Gut Repair’s certified organic Green Banana Resistant Starch will help promote a healthy gut microbiome. Resistant starch is a complex carbohydrate prebiotic food that resists digestion in the small intestines. There are four types of resistant starch, and Green Bananas are particularly high in type 2 until they ripen. The type 2 resistant starch passes through the small intestines to the colon, where they ferment. This fermentation process feeds the friendly bacteria, stimulating their growth in numbers, and producing short-chain fatty acids.
Marshmallow Root Extract
Marshmallow root has a high mucilage content and demulcent properties. This natural root extract can help stimulate protective mucus secretion within the gut, helping to soothe gut irritation and inflammation, while also protecting the gut lining integrity and risk of developing a leaky gut.
Gut Repair contains a blend of digestive enzymes to assist with digestion. The mix consists of Protease, Amylase, Lipase, Cellulase, and Lactase. Each enzyme is designed to digest specific molecules. Protease assists with protein digestion. Amylase assists with carbohydrate digestion. Lipase assists with fat digestion. Cellulase assists with cellulose digestion. Lactase assists with lactose digestion. Digestive enzyme deficiency can lead to digestive strains such as constipation and malabsorption, resulting in nutritional deficiencies than can impact brain function.
Organic Ceylon Cinnamon
Ceylon cinnamon, also known as ‘true’ cinnamon has a long history of medicinal use that is now backed by scientific research. Cinnamon is a potent antioxidant with powerful anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, and antimicrobial properties. It can also help increase good (HDL) cholesterol, lower bad (LDL) cholesterol, and support a healthy gut microbiome.
Cinnamon has been clinically shown to assist with Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Research has also shown it to be effective in lowering blood sugar levels in healthy individuals.
When supplementing with cinnamon, it is vital to use Ceylon cinnamon as other species such as the more common Cinnamon cassia (Chinese cinnamon), contain high levels of coumarins, a potentially carcinogenic and liver-damaging compound. Gut Repair sources a certified organic Ceylon cinnamon extract, for quality, safety, and efficacy.
Organic Chlorella (cracked cell)
Chlorella is a single-celled, nutrient-dense, freshwater algae that are a potent source of antioxidants such as chlorophyll, beta-carotene, and lutein. It may assist with the body’s elimination of toxins, primarily through binding with heavy metals. In animal studies, Chlorella has demonstrated the ability to reduce heavy metal toxicity in the liver, kidneys, and brain.
Chlorella cells have a hard wall that humans cannot digest. Therefore, to access the health benefits of this powerhouse, you must be sure to take a ‘cracked cell’ supplement form. Gut Repair contains a certified organic, cracked cell form of Chlorella, for quality and efficacy.
Organic Lion’s Mane Mushroom
Organic Lion’s Mane Mushroom his packed with health benefits for the gut, body, and brain. It may help protect against the development of stomach ulcers, reduce gut inflammation, and support gut immunity.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom has gained significant interest for its potential nootropic benefits, having been shown in clinical studies to improve mild cognitive impairment and to stimulate the growth of brain cells, a process known as neurogenesis. In animal studies, it has been shown to prevent neuronal damage caused by amyloid-beta plaques, accumulation of which is associated with neurodegenerative disorders.
Gut Repair contains 500 mg of certified organic Lion’s Mane Mushroom extract for quality and efficacy.
