Info: 60 Veg. Capsules
This formulation of powdered herbs and amino acids is designed to heal, nourish and repair the gastrointestinal tract lining. It can help improve anyone's intestinal health, but is especially useful for relieving the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (cramping, spasms, and irritation of the GI tract and colon).
There's actually a lot of 'turnover' in the GI tract – and not just in its contents; all the cells making up its lining are replaced about twice a week, and if it's not doing well, it may need supplementary nutrients to rebuild the intestinal lining: particularly L-Glutamine and N-acetyl glucosamine. This product provides therapeutic doses of those, as well as a number of soothing and healing herbs to help restore the damaged areas of the intestines and colon with healthy new tissue.
IBS capsules contain no nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, mustard seeds, wheat, gluten, yeast, corn, egg, dairy, soy, crustaceans, shellfish, fish, animal products, artificial colour, or preservatives, binders or fillers. All ingredients are GMO-free.
