Leaky Gut Support Supplements
Leaky gut is a name used to describe intestinal or bowel hyperpermeability.
Leaky gut syndrome is not generally recognized by conventional physicians, but evidence is accumulating that it is a real condition that affects the lining of the intestines. The theory is that leaky gut syndrome (also called increased intestinal permeability), is the result of damage to the intestinal lining, making it less able to protect the internal environment as well as to filter needed nutrients and other biological substances. As a consequence, some bacteria and their toxins, incompletely digested proteins and fats, and waste not normally absorbed may "leak" out of the intestines into the blood stream. This triggers an autoimmune reaction, which can lead to gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal bloating, excessive gas and cramps, fatigue, food sensitivities, joint pain, skin rashes, and autoimmunity. The cause of this syndrome may be chronic inflammation, food sensitivity, damage from taking large amounts of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), cytotoxic drugs and radiation or certain antibiotics, excessive alcohol consumption, or compromised immunity.

Why you may need BioDoph-7 Plus:
It is estimated that ~80% of the immune system is found in the gut, and the human body contains more bacteria living inside it than it has individual cells: 100 trillion microorganisms live in the gastrointestinal tract as compared with a mere 10 trillion human cells in the entire body. This means that there are 10X more cells of bacteria living in our intestines than what we possess in all of our bodily tissues put together. The majority of these bacterial strains are beneficial and are important for the development of the immune system. However, periods of stress or illness, fever, diarrhea, diet, the use of certain pharmaceuticals, and surgery can all cause an imbalance of these good bacteria and let bad or opportunistic bacteria and yeasts flourish – which negatively impacts health. Unfortunately, far too many people suffer from some degree of bowel dysbiosis, which can manifest as allergies, dermal irritation, fatigue, mood alterations, headaches, leaky gut, diarrhea, constipation, etc. Now further evidence suggests that obesity and diabetes may be linked with altered gut microflora. Given the prevalence of people that experience one or more of these symptoms, probiotics have the potential to be the unsung hero of overall health support.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends BioDoph-7 Plus® from Biotics Research:
The modern dilemma is that allergies and chronic health conditions are on the rise. Antibacterial soaps, washes, and wipes, chronic dehydration, mercury amalgams, total toxin load, drugs, and nutrient deficient diets have become a scourge on friendly bacteria. Documented research has indicated important benefits associated with the use of probiotic bacteria, including improved digestion, enzymatic activity, and overall modulating effects on the immune system. Formulated in collaboration with Dr. Gary Lasneski, BioDoph-7 Plus® contains a specific blend of 3 prebiotics and 7 probiotics to ensure optimal colonization with bacterial strains recognized for their bioactivity. Each capsule contains 20 billion viable organisms at the time of manufacture and consists of a proprietary blend of Inulin (from Chicory root), Arabinogalactans (from Larch), Marshmallow Root (extract), Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium breve, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salivarius, and Streptococcus thermophilus.

Why you may need Hydro-Zyme™:
Good health depends on adequate digestion. From a nutritional point of view, the level or quality of health can be traced to the level of digestive functioning. The stomach produces a variety of substances that promote digestion and assimilation; gastric juice contains hydrochloric acid and pepsinogens (precursors of the family of proteolytic enzymes called pepsins). Parietal cells produce both stomach acid and intrinsic factor, a protein required to bind vitamin B12 prior to its absorption in the small intestine. Not to solely single out vitamin B12, inadequate production of hydrochloric acid can result in impaired uptake or deficiency of all B-vitamins, potentially leading to muscle weakness and neurological deficit. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a strong mineral acid which functions to maintain gastric pH between 1.5 and 2.5. This acidity serves three important roles; low pH kills microorganisms in food, it activates pepsinogen, and it denatures proteins, making them more accessible to proteolytic degradation. While impaired digestion may result from mechanical means, such as improperly chewed food, it is far more likely to be the result of poor diet, nutritional deficiency (as a direct result of antacids and similar medications), or inadequate HCl production. Compounding this decline, the incidence of low stomach acid increases with age. Studies estimating it impacts 30-60% of people over the age of 50. Among other things, functional deficits of HCl have been associated with gas, bloating, indigestion, malodorous breath and sweat excretions, anemias resulting from nutrient deficiency, leaky gut, food allergies, joint inflammation, hair loss, and environmental sensitivities.

L-Glutamine (Free-Form Amino Acid) by Biotics
L-Glutamine - one of the non-essential amino acids, glutamine is a major fuel for enterocytes, and supports tissues that turn over rapidly, such as intestinal cells (intestinal epithelium) and components of the immune system. Each capsule supplies:
Glutamine (as L-Glutamine)* . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 500 mg *Nonhydrolyzed, naturally produced, free-form L-Amino Acid
RECOMMENDATION: One (1) capsule one (1) to three (3) times each day as a dietary supplement or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.
Contains: 180 Capsules
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. It is integral to gastrointestinal health as glutamine is the primary metabolic fuel for the enterocytes that line the intestine and colon. Considering the length and complex structural nature of the GI tract, the intestines have the largest demand for glutamine in the body. Glutamine depletion can cause atrophy, ulceration of the intestinal lining, and may also lead to leaky gut.
Perma-Clear by Thorne Research
for intestinal permeability support*
- helps maintain a healthy intestinal lining*
- promotes beneficial gut flora*
- supports gut immunity*
- helps maintain normal inflammatory processes in the intestines*
Altered intestinal microbial flora can occur alone, but it is often just one component of less than optimal gastrointestinal health, which can also include malabsorption and increased gut permeability. In the latter, molecules that would otherwise be too large to cross the gut mucosa are absorbed into the bloodstream, which can result in food allergies, autoimmune processes, and other systemic symptoms.
Perma-Clear provides nutrients and botanicals that nourish the intestinal tract and promote normal gut permeability.* Glutamine nourishes and soothes intestinal mucosal cells, N-acetylglucosamine promotes a normal mucus layer in the gut and the growth of desirable Bifidobacterium bifidum; ginger provides antioxidant activity; and quercetin dampens histamine release.* Lactobacillus sporogenes promotes beneficial gut flora and Saccharomyces boulardii stimulates immune health in the gut.*
Three Capsules Contain:
L-Glutamine 900 mg.
N-Acetylglucosamine 750 mg.
Saccharomyces boulardii 112.5 mg.
