Intestinal Repair Capsules to the Rescue

Do you sometimes experience discomfort in your tummy and you don’t know why?

Perhaps you try and relate it to something you’ve eaten? Maybe you ‘over’ ate, partied hard or are under a lot of stress …. could be many reasons but you don’t really know what it’s all about and what’s worse is that it doesn’t go away as quickly as you expected.

Intestinal Repair Caps BiogenesisThat’s when Intestinal Repair Capsules are the perfect answer to help get rid of your symptoms, no matter what caused the sudden symptoms you experience.

Why?

When you look at the ingredients in this great formula you can tell why.

To start with it has 2000 IUs of Vitamin A Palmitate, the one that is absorbed better by the body and known to help nausea and diarrhea and 100 IUs of Vitamin E Succinate. This type of Vitamin E is a form of vitamin E that contains a chemical alpha-tocopheryl known to have antioxidant effects that can help counteract any harmful toxins you may have been exposed to.
​​​​​​​

Then there’s Glutamine, which is an amino acid used as fuel by the cells that line the intestines to keep them healthy. It has been shown to heal Leaky Gut. Glutamine levels can be depleted when the body is under prolonged stress leaving you vulnerable to Leaky Gut.

In addition to Glutamine this product has other standout ingredients such as:

N-acetyl glucosamine
It helps to heal the tight junctions in the gut. These are the spaces between the intestinal cells. The health of these cells is crucial. When they are not functioning healthy, food particles can leak out of the intestines and get into the blood stream. This is toxic to our systems and know as Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Quercitin
A very potent antioxidant. Antioxidants fight against free radicals which are the chemically reactive compounds that damage cell membranes and DNA and also cause cell death. It helps to lessen the effects of oxidative stress on the body. Oxidative stress takes place in all of us but is increased by things like a poor diet, high levels of stress, a lack of sleep and exposure to chemical toxins.

Cat’s Claw
Helps reduce pain and inflammation. Dr Axe says that cat’s claw is one of the best antiviral herbs to boost the immune system and fight infection. It’s used to treat many digestive disorders like colitis, diverticulitis, gastritis, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers and leaky gut.

Okra
High in fiber, vitamin C and folate and also helps with pain related to inflammation. 

Glucosamine
Has a role in healing the gut because it forms a major part of the mucosal layer in the GI tract. It works to help heal inflamed, damaged soft tissues of the gut.

Zinc Glycinate
Helps to promote healing and strengthen the immune system. It promotes a feeling of well being and reduces stress.

If your symptoms are persistent or if you suspect you have Leaky Gut Syndrome, you can always take the easy to administer Genova Lab Intestinal Permeability home urine test to find out more.

Do You Have Leaky Gut? Find Out

What is Leaky Gut?

In a nut shell it’s intestinal permeability. People with leaky gut experience symptoms within a short time after eating.  Symptoms like stomach upset, gas, bloating and fatigue.

How Does Leaky Gut Happen?

Leaky gut occurs when your gut lining breaks down. This allows proteins, gluten, undigested foods and even bad bacteria to leak into your bloodstream.

What happens next?

Your body creates an immune response; this response is what causes you to feel ill after you eat and lethargic.

Leaky gut left over time causes your body to be in a constant state of inflammation.  Left untreated this inflammation contributes to chronic illness such as cardiovascular disease, cancer,  auto-immune disorders, mood disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and allergies.

What Causes Leaky Gut?

Leaky Gut can be caused by any of number of things. Here’s the most common:

  • poor diet
  • alcohol
  • stress
  • antibiotics
  • intestinal bugs
  • sugar

What’s the Solution?

First and foremost, find out about your gut health.  If you think you may  have Leaky Gut; take the at home Genova Lab Intestinal Permeability urine test. If you do have Leaky Gut start by repairing the gut.

Leaky Gut Formula has been shown to be extremely helpful in repairing the gut lining. Also, consider Intestinal Repair Capsules.

Crowd out the bad bacteria with good bacteria. Start taking a Probiotic and a Prebiotic. Leaky Gut responds extremely well to the combination of PerfectPass Prebiotic and PerfectPass Probiotic. Together they increase your good bacteria diversity as well as help to eliminate bad bacteria.

Give your digestive tract a break so it can focus on repair by using digestive enzymes; Perfect Pass Digestive Enzymes help digest  food when taken with meals and will reduce inflammation when taken between meals.

Now, take a look at your diet choices.

A very close look.

Are you eating refined carbohydrates, processed convenience foods or foods with hidden sugars.

With a Leaky Gut, these foods will continue to wreak havoc on your system and you will have a tough time healing.

Check out this book by Elaine Gottschall; Breaking the Vicious Cycle. This is an excellent resource for recipes and tips on how to reduce inflammation and heal your gut through foods.

In the meantime for more information on Leaky Gut, watch this short video of Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan. Kiran explains how they  performed a clinical trial measuring the toxic response of persons with Leaky Gut Syndrome before and after taking a 60 day course of probiotics. The trial participants were cured of their intestinal permeability after the 60 days! The spores of probiotics are the same soil based spores that you can find in Perfect Pass Probiotics.

Why VSL3?

VSL#3 Probiotic 2 Pack Capsules VSL3 Can Help If You….

  • Have heavy stress
  • Have recently taken antibiotics
  • Drink a lot of alcohol
  • Eat a lot of sugar
  • Get recurring fungal infections

Did you know that if you do just one of these system stressors on a regular basis, your gut health could be compromised.  Microorganisms which reside in your gut can not be stimulated to grow by a change in diet alone. That’s why probiotics are necessary. Before your immune system gets out of wack, consider taking probiotics.

Why take VSL#3?

  • 10 times the strength of the average probiotic
  • Proprietary blend of 8 strains of live probiotic bacteria; multiple bacteria strains taken simultaneously provide a wider range of benefits than single strain probiotics.
  • The effects of probiotics are very strain specific; the strains of VSL#3 are backed by more than 170 published studies
  • Greater potency which ensures that bacteria survive the stomach acid and bile to colonize in your gut.
  • VSL #3 is now dairy-free for those people who suffer from milk allergies or lactose intolerance.

In 2014 the World Health Organization defined Probiotics as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” VSL#3 meets the definition of a probiotic.

What are the results of VSL#3?

  • Maintains a healthy mucosal lining
  • Strengthens intestinal barriers
  • Strengthens the tight junctions
  • Improves immune system
  • Improves digestion

What Conditions Does VSL#3 Help?

If you are still wondering if VSL#3 could be right for you, take a look at these testimonials from those who have been helped by this product. VSL#3 is now available in three formulations, regular strength, double strength and packet form. It’s simple to take as a capsule or just add it to a beverage or smoothie.

Contact us if you have any questions about VSL#3 or need help with determining the best dose to take for your condition or symptoms.

Leaky Gut – It’s really Inflammation

How Does Inflammation in the Gut Impact You 

Leaky GutMost people think of inflammation as something that happens in the joints or when there is an external injury. The one place commonly unrecognized for inflammation is in the gut. This creates damage to the lining of the intestinal tract which can even create holes that allow undigested food into the bloodstream. This is known as leaky gut and it leaks dangerous toxins into the bloodstream that inflame internal organs such as the brain.

These toxins are seen as a physical invasion by the immune system and it reacts. When the immune system reacts to an undigested food particle it creates an acquired food allergy. This can also lead to autoimmune diseases. The immune system is left on high alert and it eventually wears out.

What Foods Contribute to Leaky Gut?

Some of the most common foods that cause inflammation in the gut are gluten, (the protein in wheat), casein, (the protein in dairy), corn, sugar, and soy. These foods should be reduced or eliminated, especially if digestion is a problem. For additional information on foods impacting the gut read Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall. She talks about using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to help reduce inflammation and heal the gut. 

How Can You Heal a Leaky Gut?

Some supplements can assist in reducing inflammation in the body. Specific enzymes and probiotics can assist in reducing the inflammation and healing the gut. One of my favorites is also omega 3 fatty acids for their multiple uses. They reduce inflammation, assist vision, and help the brain to function while also protecting it. Bone broth is also very healing to the gut.

Microbiome and Disease

Everyday we are finding more compelling reasons to ensure our microbiome is at the top of our priority list for good health. Dr. Ingrid Kohlstadt, MD, MPF recently wrote about the influence our microbiome has on disorders of the skin, eyes and seasonal allergy disorders. In her article, Dr. Kohlstadt states, “published research supports the assertion that all of these medical conditions are entwined with the health of the microbiome. Microbiome research is causing us to rethink long held scientific assumptions about the origins of disease. “

What’s clear is that more research needs to be done. Microbiomes are similar to ecosystems and can not be studied with double-blind, placebo controlled trials. What we can do is study the research findings in relation to patients symptoms.

Kiran Krishnan, gut bacteria, human microbiomeMicrobiologist Kiran Krishnan is doing just that. Currently Kiran and his team are running human clinical trials with people that have leaky gut. After 30 days on probiotic therapy they have shown no sign of leaky gut when eating an endotoxic meal consisting of a McDonald’s breakfast sandwich. For more information about probiotic therapy and to learn about the latest research from Kiran Krishnan listen to our seven part Microbiome Series. The latest interview will focus on Kiran’s research stemming from clinical trials.
