IPS x 90 Capsules
Larger than the size of a tennis court, the intestine represents the major interface between the body and the environment. This huge area is designed to assure efficient uptake of nutrients and paradoxically, it must simultaneously exclude many substances such as microorganisms, toxins, food allergens, and endotoxins in order to maintain health. As the largest immune organ with a full compliment of immune cells (T cells, B cells, mast cells and macrophages), the intestine secretes large amounts of a specific antibody, secretory IgA (sIgA). sIgA binds specifically to antigens and microorganisms to prevent their attachment and uptake by the gut mucosa. Imbalanced immune function can alter intestinal permeability due to inflammation, decreased sIgA, stress, and decreased nutritional status. When the intestinal epithelium becomes injured or compromised, chronic health disturbances may result.
IPS® is a unique formula that was designed to address the specific issue of altered intestinal permeability. For example, L-Glutamine supports tissues that turnover rapidly, such as the intestinal epithelium. D-Glucosamine sulphate is an amino sugar which is a key building block in the production of connective tissue and the basement membrane to which the intestinal mucosa is anchored. Glutathione helps to maintain the internal redox environment to inhibit the production of proinflammatory cytokines. Gamma oryzanol supplies ferulic acid and phytosteorol, provides significant antioxidant activity. Use where gastrointestinal support has been determined by a healthcare practitioner.
