This wellness kit includes supplements specifically recommended for gut health in The Autoimmune Solution:
Prescript-Assist Broad Spectrum Probiotic: This probiotic is a blend of a full 29 probiotic strains, specifically chosen to mimic the natural flora found in traditional and paleolithic diets. Human clinical research — including a published peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial — shows that Prescript-Assist replenishes healthy GI microflora, promotes a healthy gastro-intestinal environment, relieves occasional abdominal discomfort and bloating, alleviates occasional indigestion and nausea, promotes a normal bowel pattern, reduces flatulence, and supports overall wellness and vitality.
L-Glutamine Capsules: This Glutamine supplement contains L-Glutamine, an amino acid, which is essential for the health of the immune system and digestive tract. It is very reparative and healing in the gut where it strengthens the mucosal cells and in turn helps leaky gut and sugar cravings. Glutamine also helps promote optimal muscle growth and strength and has shown to be particularly useful in helping prevent muscle wasting.
Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate: Hydrolyzed Collagen is the unique combination of amino acids in concentrated levels that promotes rapid reproduction of blood cells for healing and conditioning over other proteins, especially for bone and joint health care. This low molecular weight protein is easily digested for healthy enrichment minutes after ingestion. It will not congeal because it has been hydrolyzed for quick assimilation and improved hydration to the connective tissue. Collagen is important to nitrogen balance, now considered an anti-aging product as it supports age-related cartilage damage and collagen loss.
Complete Enzymes: This high-potency, multi-enzyme formulation offers an unusually complete range of plant/microbial-based enzymes that work in concert to help maintain normal enzyme levels that support the body’s digestive capabilities and assist intestinal repair mechanisms. The broad-spectrum combination of enzymes maximizes the breakdown, absorption, and utilization of macronutrients from the widest spectrum of foods, including proteins and protein peptides, carbohydrates, disaccharides, and sugars, lipids/fats, and vegetable fibers. Complete Enzymes can serve as an important dietary adjunct for individuals requiring maximal nutrient uptake and for those with compromised gastrointestinal function such as maldigestion, malabsorption, dysbiosis, or intestinal inflammation.
HCL: Hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach does several positive things. It assists protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, it renders the stomach sterile against ingested pathogens, it inhibits undesirable overgrowth in the small intestine, and it encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes. Hydrochloric acid also facilitates the absorption of a number of nutrients, including folate, vitamin B12, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, iron, and some forms of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Numerous studies have shown hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach declines with advancing age. Overuse of antacids can also lead to low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which can result in poor protein digestion.
