Gut Health Protocol
SBI Protect® Powder
SBI Protect® is the only purified, dairy-free source of immunoglobulin G (IgG) available as a dietary supplement. Pure IgG helps to maintain a healthy intestinal immune system by binding a broad ranges of microbes and toxins within the gut lumen.
- Provides Concentrated Immunoglobulins to Enhance Mucosal Immunity
- Helps Maintain Microbial Balance
- Supports GI Barrier Health and Integrity
- Helps Maintain Normal Inflammatory Balance
The discovery that the gut barrier plays a key role in immune health fueled the search to strengthen it. In that search, researchers found that the binding capabilities of immunoglobulins have a positive effect on gut barrier function. Immunoglobulins bind microbes and toxins in the GI tract and eliminate them prior to immune system activation. As these unwanted triggers are removed, it resets healthy immune tolerance and builds a stronger barrier to the external environment.
1 scoop (2.5 grams) in 4 ounces of water or the beverage of your choice 2 times daily or as recommended by your health care professional.
GlutaShield is designed to promote the health and barrier function of the gastrointestinal lining.
- Supports GI Barrier Health and Integrity
- Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance and Healthy Gut Epithelium
- Provides Concentrated Nutrition for GI Cells
A healthy GI tract has an epithelial mucosal barrier that prevents the passage of food antigens (proteins), toxins, and microorganisms from crossing into the bloodstream. Stress, overconsumption of alcohol, food intolerance, microbial imbalance and poor nutrition can affect the integrity of the epithelial barrier. The health of the GI tract is dependent on the modulation of these factors. The ingredients in GlutaShield help regenerate and maintain GI enterocytes while supporting the health of the intestinal mucosal barrier.
The unique formula in GlutaShield includes nutrients that support the gut mucosal epithelium. The purpose of the epithelium is to allow the digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients while keeping unwanted toxins, microbes and food particles from passing directly into the body. GlutaShield is available in delicious chocolate and vanilla flavors.
Mix 1 scoop of GlutaShield with water or beverage of your choice, once daily or as recommended by your health care professional.
Probiotic 225 is a maximum-strength probiotic for cases of acute gastrointestinal (GI) and immune challenges.
- Accelerates the Proliferation of Healthy Intestinal Microflora
- Promotes a Rapid Immune Response
- Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance
The GI tract is a finely balanced environment where roughly 500 different strains of bacteria compete for space and nutrients. When there is a healthy balance (eubiosis), few symptoms exist. However, dysbiosis can occur when an overabundance of potentially harmful organisms prevail. The natural microflora balance can become disrupted by certain medications, excessive alcohol consumption, or poor dietary intake. Probiotics have been extensively studied and are characterized as having broad GI and immune benefits, including (1) increasing the population of healthy bacteria following microflora imbalance; (2) supporting healthy bowel function; (3) increasing the production of short-chain fatty acids, which provide energy to the cells of the intestinal lining; (4) strengthening the gut-immune barrier by promoting a healthy gut mucosa; (5) aiding in the digestion of difficult-to-breakdown compounds like lactose and casein; and (6) enhancing detoxification of harmful compounds. Because probiotics are live organisms, there are many challenges associated with manufacturing and distributing probiotic supplements. For a probiotic to be effective, it must be shelf-stable through the expiration date and precisely delivered to the intestinal tract, where it can have maximum benefit. The microorganisms in Probiotic 225 are protected, sealed, and freeze dried away from moisture, heat, light and oxygen. This allows the bacteria to remain dormant until they are exposed to moisture in the GI tract.
Mix 1 packet into 8 oz of a cold beverage of your choice or as recommended by your health care professional.
