Why you may need IPS®:
IPS® is a comprehensive Intestinal Permeability Support supplement. With a total surface area larger than the size of a tennis court, the intestine represents the major interface between the body and the environment. This huge area is designed to assure efficient uptake of nutrients and paradoxically, it must simultaneously exclude many substances such as microorganisms, toxins, food allergens, and endotoxins in order to maintain health. As the largest immune organ with a full compliment of immune cells (T cells, B cells, mast cells and macrophages), the intestine secretes large amounts of a specific antibody, secretory IgA (sIgA), which binds specifically to antigens and microorganisms and prevents their uptake in the gut. Imbalanced immune function can alter intestinal permeability due to inflammation, decreased sIgA, stress, and decreased nutritional status. When the intestinal epithelium becomes injured or compromised, leaks or gaps in the mucosa may develop. These gaps may allow allergens and foreign proteins to leak into the bloodstream, and allergic symptoms or chronic health challenges may result.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends IPS® from Biotics Research:
IPS® is a unique formula that was designed to address the specific issue of altered intestinal permeability, supplying a comprehensive array of nutritional factors to support healthy intestinal function. L-Glutamine is an amino acid which plays a major role in the health of the immune system and the digestive tract. D-Glucosamine sulfate is an amino sugar which is a key building block in connective tissue and the lining of the intestines. In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, glutathione levels are linked with healthy (anti) aging and proper immune function. Gamma oryzanol supports the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract and helps balance pro-inflammatory mediators. Tillandsia, also known as Spanish moss, helps to support healthy intestinal mucosa, and Jerusalem artichoke is a fructooligosaccaride which has been shown to promote the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Collectively, the components of IPS not only promote gastrointestinal health, but they also are beneficial to overall immune system function, which is key to resolving GI dysfunction. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying “The Best of Science and Nature”.
