GlutaShield is designed to promote the health and barrier function of the gastrointestinal lining. Its unique formula includes nutrients that support the gut mucosal epithelium.
Supports GI Barrier Health and Integrity
Promotes Inflammatory Balance and Healthy Gut Epithelium
Provides Concentrated Nutrition for GI Cells
The ingredients in GlutaShield help regenerate and maintain GI enterocytes while supporting the health of the intestinal mucosal barrier. GlutaShield includes a high dose of L-glutamine (4 g), which serves as nutrition for the gut lining. It provides 500 g of deglycyrrhized licorice root extract (DGL) and 75 mg of aloe vera extract, both of which protect and promote the health of the gut mucosa. N-acetyl glucosamine and zinc boost GI integrity.
Deglycyrrhized Licorice Root Extract (DGL)
DGL is a form of licorice root that has been specially processed to contain only biologically active flavonoids, without glycyrrhizin. This allows for higher dosing of the active ingredient, which helps maintain a healthy mucosal surface.
Aloe Vera Leaf Gel Extract
A demulcent that has been used throughout history, aloe vera has long been known to promote a normal inflammatory response. Studies have shown aloe vera is specifically beneficial to the gastric mucosa, in part by its ability to balance stomach acid levels and promote healthy mucus production.
L-glutamine is a main source of fuel for the cells of the small intestines and essential to tissue repair throughout the body. Enterocytes use the amino acid to help maintain the health of the mucosa.
N-acetyl glucosamine is the acetylated form of glucosamine. It is a mucin precursor and has been shown to increase the production of mucus within the GI tract.
Zinc is an essential mineral widely recognized for its role in gut and immune health. Zinc has been shown to strengthen GI barrier function by supporting the structure of tight junctions.
