Each cell that lines the intestine lives only 3 days before it dies and is replaced by a completely new cell. In their short life, these tiny cells work amazingly hard and their duties are highly complex. Because of this, they have extraordinary nutritional requirements to perform at their best. Leaky gut syndrome can result simply from not having an adequate supply of all of the important nutrients required by these critical intestinal cells. Likewise, when leaky gut is present, the gut will only heal if these cells are bathed in a highly nutrient rich environment.
RevitalX Intestinal Rejuvenation Formula contains the most important nutrients that the gut needs: highly digestible, low allergy potential protein (such as rice protein); L-glutamine is a regulator of nitrogen metabolism in normal and catabolic states. Deficiencies increase gastrointestinal distress; NAG (N-acetyl glucosamine) controls and thins excessive gastrointestinal mucus; pantothenic acid controls allergy overreactions; zinc called the healing mineral, helps heal damaged digestive tissue, modulates enzyme activity, controls diarrhea and is needed for a proper functioning immune system.
Antioxidants (such as vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, grape seed extract, and milk thistle extract) protect the gut and liver while stimulating detoxification activities. The natural bioflavonoid, quercetin is an antioxidant that stabilizes the cells in the gut that are responsible for allergic reactions. It is often used as a supplement to help reduce symptoms in those with food allergies; water-soluble fibre (such as guar gum) is a key nutrient that assist in promoting recovery from leaky gut syndrome; lecithin and omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and flax oil supply necessary membrane lipids for healing the damaged digestive tract.
Good quality protein, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, essential fatty acids (and other lipids), fibre and a variety of phytochemicals are all highly important when endeavoring to heal the leaky gut. Minerals and trace elements, such as calcium, magnesium, selenium, and chromium are very important because leaky gut is associated with decreased nutrient absorption. Digestive enzymes are often recommended by health care practitioners to improve digestive processes in those with leaky gut. RevitalX, in combination with essential fatty acid supplements has been designed to contain all of these important gut nourishing nutrients.
