Intestamine features a carefully selected blend of botanicals and nutrients to provide optimal nourishment to support the structural integrity and functions of the digestive tract. This comprehensive, vegan-friendly, shellfish-free blend helps to soothe, heal and seal an inflamed and irritated gastrointestinal mucosa. Glutamine is important for the repair of gastrointestinal cells. Mastic gum is used in traditional Greek medicine for symptomatic relief of dyspepsia. Turmeric and aloe have anti-inflammatory activity. Slippery elm is used in traditional western herbal medicine for its soothing, demulcent effect on the gastrointestinal tract. Pectin encourages the growth of healthy bifidobacteria and citrus bioflavonoids provide additional nutritional support.
