Little Warrior Gut Healing Protocol: when we are looking at healing the gut with our little warriors and mama warrior's we reach for 3 important tools: GI-Revive, NFH Cod Liver Oil (for its powerful vitamin A healing powers), and a multi-strain high potency probiotic.
GI-Revive™ wins the best in class for gut restorative health. This great tasting peach powder is simple to give to your little ones, or take yourself. Its a synergistic formula offering comprehensive support to soothe and restore gut health for optimal function. This is an integral component for gut healing post infection, or antibiotic use.
If you suspect “Leaky Gut” (food allergies, asthma, skin sensitivities, eczema, multiple food and chemical/environmental sensitivities, hives, autism, autoimmunity, IBS, ulcerative colitis etc) This product is the basis of a gut restoring, gut healing protocol. It provides therapeutic levels of nutrients which support gastrointestinal mucosal repair and help fight inflammation along with ingredients to promote intestinal regularity.
Benefits of GI Revive:
▶ Rejuvenates intestinal mucosal health after a bout of infection, antibiotic and medication use.
▶ Promotes proper intestinal ability (appropriate for “Leaky Gut” and associated conditions)
▶ Provides healing for ulceration and inflammation
▶ Promotes regularity and healthy bowel function
Zinc Carnosine: Zinc Carnosine is included in this formulation due to its impressive mucosal-protective and anti-ulcerative properties, including the ability to protect the intestinal lining against damage due to indomethacin and other strong anti-inflammatory medications often associated with intestinal mucosal damage.
L-Glutamine: Glutamine is the most important nutritional substance for healthy intestinal cells. It is one of the most commonly used amino acids in the body to repair tissues, particularly high turnover tissue such as the epithelial cells of the intestinal lining. Supplemental L-glutamine has been shown to have immunomodulatory, anticatabolic/anabolic and gastrointestinal mucosal-protective actions. It may also have antioxidant activity as it is a precursor for glutathione synthesis. Under stress, the body relies on glutamine to help meet its extra energy needs. Glutamine deficiency can cause severe intestinal degradation and supplementation can enhance intestinal healing and repair. It is essential in maintaining proper intestinal permeability and avoiding “leaky gut syndrome.” Leaky gut syndrome can result in increased toxic and allergy exposure, systemic inflammation, and autoimmune disease.
MSM and Quercetin: These anti-inflammatory substances can reduce the chronic inflammation which is often the reason why the intestinal lining becomes damaged and “leaky.” Quercetin can also provide direct anti-inflammatory action by stabilizing intestinal mast cells and can improve tissue health through its antioxidant functions.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine: N-Acetyl Glucosamine aids in the production of health supportive structures for the cells of the intestinal lining. The increased production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which can occur as a result of supplementation of these nutrients, can help support proper mucosal health and reduce intestinal permeability.
DGL, Slippery Elm, Marshmallow, Chamomile, Okra, and Cat’s Claw: These mucilaginous and relaxing herbs can provide comprehensive enhancement of intestinal function by coating and soothing the intestinal lining, promoting the healing of ulcers and inflamed tissue, and reducing cramping by relaxing the intestines. GI Revive™ contains this impressive comprehensive blend of botanicals that have a long traditional use in gastrointestinal disorders.
Mucin: Mucin is a glycoprotein, normally secreted by the intestinal epithelial cells, containing sialic acid and N-neurominic acid. It can serve to coat the intestinal lining and to neutralize intestinal antigens, along with sIgA, reducing the inflammation and tissue damage caused by food allergy, intestinal infection and dysbiosis.
Prune Powder and Citrus Pectin These two ingredients are included to safely aid in regularity without the caustic and damaging effects of commonly used herbal laxatives such as Cassia marilandica (senna) and Rhamnus purshiana (cascara sagrada).
