Did you know? The gastrointestinal (GI) system is home to 75 percent of the body’s immune cells and more than 400 species of microflora. Proper nutrient digestion, immune function and minimization of toxin and allergen absorption are all dependent on optimal gastrointestinal health.*
A number of supportive nutrients can help address these issues. Pure Encapsulations offers a complete line of gastrointestinal health formulas designed to support detoxification, digestion, and microbial defense, in addition to GI comfort, integrity and motility.*
Enzymes and Digestion Aids
Pure Encapsulations’ Digestive Enzymes Ultra is a comprehensive blend of vegetarian digestive enzymes that supports enhanced protein, carbohydrate, fat, fiber and dairy digestion and promotes optimal nutrient bioavailability across a wide pH range. Digestive enzymes promote digestive function for overall comfort and relief of occasional gas, bloating and heartburn.*
Protein digestion also relies on gastric-juice components, such as pepsin and hydrochloric acid (HCl), or supplemental Betaine/HCl. Pure Encapsulations’ Betain HCl/Pepsin incorporates these gastric-juice components to support a well-functioning digestive system.*
Heartburn Essentials combines enzymes to enhance digestion with gamma oryzanol, deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extract, marshmallow and more to help soothe the digestive tract, offering potential relief for occasional heartburn and indigestion.*
l-Glutamine, the most abundant amino acid in the body, promotes intestinal integrity by supporting the protective mucosal lining and maintaining healthy villus function in the gut. Proper villus function allows for optimal nutrient absorption while limiting the number of toxins that pass through the intestinal barrier. Pure Encapsulations offers l-Glutamine in a convenient powder form, including the amino acids glycine, taurine and methionine that help support liver detoxification.*
Research indicates that beneficial bacteria including Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis may have particular health promoting properties for gastrointestinal and immune function. Probiotics support healthy B cell, T cell and natural killer (NK) cell function and promote healthy cytokine production. Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora, supports healthy yeast balance and promotes GI comfort. Probiotic-5 is a high strength, dairy-free blend of five key lactobacilli and bifidobacteria to promote GI tract health and comfort, immune cell function and overall health.
In a two-year, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled PANDA trial involving pregnant women and infants, supplementation with 3 g of Ecologic PANDA (B. Bifidum, B. Lactis and Lc. Lactis) provided a statistically significant reduction in the incidence of skin sensitivity in the infants at 3 months of age. PureBaby Probiotic provides the specially designed three-strain species probiotic formulation Ecologic PANDA and was developed and clinically researched especially for mother and baby to provide a healthy start for immune balance and skin health.*
