Intestinal Complex 90c is available by Pharmax.
Features & benefits
Intestinal Complex is a combination of traditional herbal remedies aimed at:
? Providing mucilage to sooth irritated or inflamed mucosa
? Providing anti-inflammatory activity from use of traditional herbs
? Providing anti-oxidant activity
Intestinal Complex is a herbal combination product designed to relieve symptoms of irritation and inflammation from the gut and induce a soothing effect to the mucosal surface.
The basis for the herbal action is:
? MUCILAGE PRODUCTION
? ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITY
? ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY
Herbal-derived ?mucilage? can be deficient in oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, which absorb moisture in the G.I. tract and produce a ?gel-like? viscous consistency. Mucilages are mainly composed of xylans, pentosans and fatty acid esters. In addition, mucilage is not broken down by host enzymes or affected substantially by the gut microflora, and it acts as a lubricating and soothing agent for the mucosal lining. In traditional herbalism, marshmallow has been the European plant favored for its mucilage content while in North America, Slippery Elm has been used. Both plants have mucilage content between 35 ? 50% of their wet weight.
Camomile, marigold and licorice have all been used traditionally for anti-inflammatory and carminative effects. In all cases, the mechanism appears to be the down-regulation of production of pro-inflammatory eicosanoids.
Gamma-oryzanol, which is isolated from rice bran, has potent antioxidant activity. In the gastro-intestinal tract, gammaoryzanol has been found to stimulate gastric production and, in addition, the benefits of this substance in the treatment of gastric ulcers are well documented. Intestinal Complex is appropriate for anyone who has irritated or inflamed gastrointestinal tract mucosa and wishes to take a herbal approach.
