Natural Support or GI and Digestive Health
Intestimine from Douglas Laboratories is a dietary supplement intended to provide digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract support.
Intestamine provides potent levels of
- Amino acid l-glutamine, which helps maintain the normal structure and function of your GI tract
- NutraFlora FOS, a carbohydrate that helps nourish beneficial intestinal bacteria
- Acacia fiber, which is fermented into short chain fatty acids for the lower intestine
- N-acetyl-d-glucosamine, which is used as a structural component of intestinal mucous secretions
Glutamine may be the main energy source for intestinal cells. And when you are under physiological stress -- such as starvation, physical trauma, surgery, or IBD -- your GI tract will greatly benefit from extra dietary glutamine. It helps maintain normal intestinal permeability, mucosal cell regeneration, and structure.
This amino acid is also the most abundant in your body and is a vehicle for nitrogen transport.
Your body also consumes glutamine to support the health of your liver, pancreas, and immune system, as well as to help excrete potentially toxic ammonia.
To use as a dietary supplement, you can take this taste-neutral powder on a regular basis -- usually one to two servings a day. This level will provide 5 to 10 grams of l-glutamine.
Individuals with GI and catabolic diseases should consult a health care professional for appropriate use of Intestamine for their nutritional support.
For best results, you should take this supplement with cold or room-temperature foods or liquids. You should not take it with highly acidic foods or liquids.
