Fast-paced lifestyles and poor dietary habits can lead to a host of gastrointestinal problems that can interfere with our everyday activities. Ulcetrol is a dietary supplement that is formulated with key ingredients to protect and support a healthy stomach lining. PepZin GI, a patented ingredient, protects the stomach lining by finding damaged mucosal cells in the stomach and encouraging the repair of injured tissue.
An impressive combination of nutrients which are each well-known for their gastrointestinal healing properties, Ulcetrol offers powerful digestive healing properties unlike any other natural health product on the market today.
Its first ingredient is PepZinGI, a chelated complex of the amino acid l-carnosine and the mineral zinc. This specially chelated form of zinc has a unique ability to exert its effects directly on the cells of the stomach and when complexed to L-carnosine, it remains in the gastrointestinal tract for a longer period of time, extending its healing effect. L-carnosine and zinc have a number of pharmacological properties. They act as antioxidants, membrane stabilizers, anti-inflammatories, immunomodulators, and tissue repairers.
Ulcetrol also contains mastic gum, a natural resin from the Pistacia lentiscus, a small evergreen tree that is native to Greece. Mastic gum provides relief of digestive discomfort and may also kill bacteria that can lead to ulcers. Its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties may also offer additional healing support.
Buffered calcium is also included as a buffer to safeguard against excessive stomach acid.
And finally, slippery elm, a native North American herb is included. It has the ability to adhere to the lining of the entire intestinal tract to reduce inflammation and heal ulcers and wounds.
