Product Information
Indiscretion in eating (like from a garbage can), poor quality pet foods, and stress can all contribute to digestive upset in our companion animals.

Intolerance to certain foods is commonly seen in veterinary practice. While avoiding feeding the foods an animal is intolerant to can support a healthy GI tract, treating the cause is also essential. Increased gut permeability that allows for absorption of larger protein fragments is often at the root of the problem. By improving gut integrity and decreasing the gut's permeability, the animal's sensitivity to foods can be greatly reduced.

Gastriplex is a comprehensive intestinal support product that combines nutrients for mucosal support and gut integrity with probiotics and nutrients that support the body's normal inflammatory response.

Glutamine plays a key role in maintaining mucosal cell integrity and gut barrier function. Glutamine also enhances the gut's immune function, in part by increasing the production of secretory immunoglobulin a (sIgA), an antibody that promotes immunity. N-acetyl D-glucosamine (NAG) also helps maintain normal intestinal permeability. It enhances mucus production and is involved in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans, the building blocks of connective tissue.

Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast that decreases intestinal permeability. Like glutamine, this beneficial yeast exerts its protective effect on the GI tract by increasing the production of sIgA. Lactobacillus sporogenes is a safe, effective probiotic that survives in stomach acid and produces L(+) lactic acid in the intestine. Probiotics are successfully used to help maintain a healthy GI tract.

Slippery elm, a demulcent and emollient, provides soothing protection for the mucus membranes of the intestinal tract. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) supports a healthy intestinal lining by helping to increase blood flow and maintain normal muscle relaxation.

Quercetin, an abundant dietary flavonoid, has significant positive action in the intestinal tract. Gastriplex contains Thorne Research's patented quercetin chalcone, which, because it's water-soluble, makes it a highly bioavailable form of quercetin.
