Leaky Gut Repair [60 capsules] – is a comprehensive approach to support leaky gut healing. Leaky Gut Syndrome, also called intestinal permeability has been widely accepted by progressive physicians as a major health risk for years. Leaky gut is defined as a breakdown of the gut lining which protects the body and plays a major role in nutrient absorption. A diet lacking proper nutrition plus environmental toxins features prominently in developing a leaky gut.
3 Important Steps to Reverse Leaky Gut:
• Provide a temporary intestinal barrier while stimulating natural production of mucilage (a gel-like polysaccharide that coats stomach and gut lining.)
• Reducing inflammation that triggers additional damage caused by immune system.
• Repairing the cells that make up the wall lining by providing critical building blocks in the epithelial wall.
Our Leaky Gut Repair formulation combines all these tasks in one product. A detailed breakdown of ingredients and how they help heal leaky gut can be found on the INGREDIENTS tab.
When left unchecked, leaky gut has been shown to contribute to ulcers; irritable bowel syndrome (IBS,) small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO,) gas, bloating, chronic inflammation, C. diff and E. coli infections and other gut disorders. [cite]
Candida overgrowth or biofilm accumulation can complicate leaky gut syndrome. If you think this might be the your situation, consider including a regimen of Candida Complex and Serrapeptase. To avoid liver issues or if you already have a high liver enzyme count, consider including Hepatiben as well.
Suggested use: take 2 capsules with 8 oz. of water or as directed by a physician or healthcare practitioner.

L-Glutamine - 300mg
Glutamine is critical for any program designed to heal leaky gut. Glutamine powder is an anti-inflammatory essential amino acid necessary for the growth and repair of the intestinal lining. Used to support the healing of ulcers and promote healthy bowel movements. Improves IBS and digestive issues by balancing mucosal production.
Organic Slippery Elm - 150mg
Slippery elm and marshmallow root contains high amounts of mucilage. This eases the inflammation in the stomach lining, supports ulcer healing, and helps with both diarrhea and constipation by creating a protective lining on the digestive tract. It can be thought of as having a band-aid affect on the lining of the gut. Mucilage is a gel-like polysacchride that coats lining. This substance also coats undigested foods and prevents them from passing into the body> This is just one more way to help reduce inflammation.
Organic Marshmallow Root - 150 mg
A multipurpose ingredient used for respiratory or digestive relief. Marshmallow root shares many of the same attributes as slippery elm, but additionally contains antibacterial properties. These two compounds (slippery elm and marshmallow roots) work best together.
N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine (NAG) - 125mg
N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (NAG) is fundamental to the production of the protective mucus lining the digestive and respiratory tracts. Glutamine is used as the precursor of this important protein that is critical in providing this protective coating for the GI tract lining.
Licorice Root Extract (DGL) - 100mg
Deglycyrrhizinated licorice or DGL, is an extract of licorice root that contains no glycyrrhizin, so it's completely safe for people with high blood pressure. Licorice root decreases the symptoms associated with acid reflux from the stomach. It's often taken to ease peptic ulcers, heartburn, colic, and ongoing inflammation of the lining of the stomach (chronic gastritis). Many of these issues arise through inflammation, H. pylori overgrowth or constant use of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) - 100mg
MSM donates sulfur, which is a critically important in tight junction health. Tight junctions are the spaces between epithelial cells that make up the gut lining. If the junctions are too loose or in disrepair, toxins will stream in causing an inflammatory response. MSM also works to coat the mucous membranes of the body and so prevents the movement of allergens into the bloodstream.
Quercetin Dihydrate 95% - 50mg
Leaky gut is in part caused by unstable mast cells in the gut. Quercetin stabilizes mast cells and drastically reduces the release of histamine and other immune components from these masts cells. As an example, researchers bred rats to have no mast cells in the gut (thus they are unable to have unstable mast cells that release histamine), they no longer develop intestinal permeability or leaky gut. Quercetin has also been shown to enhance gut barrier function by supporting the assembly and expression of tight junction proteins.
Zinc Orotate (chelate) - 25mg
Zinc that has been chelated to orotic acid is the most readily absorbed form of zinc. Orotate zinc is more neutrally charged compared to other types of zinc allowing easy passage into cells. Patients with Crohn’s disease have experienced success using zinc to decrease ulcerations of the gut associated with leaky gut.
