Protea’s GI assist was developed to support the body’s natural detoxification process but supporting intestinal function.
One of it’s main ingredients is a non essential amino acid called L- glutamine (sometimes referred to as just glutamine).
A non essential amino acid means the body is capable of producing enough to supply its needs. The body requires sufficient protein to function optimally. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body and among other jobs, it plays a vital role in intestinal health.
Many people associate glutamine with recovery, but not everyone understands the benefits specific to the intestines and gut health.
Glutamine provides energy for intestinal and immune cells. It aides in stengtening the intestinal walls and preventing gut permeability a.k.a leaky gut. Without a strong gut lining, toxins and harmful bacteria can leak out into the rest of your body causing GI distress and even autoimmune diseases and disorders.
Gut health is paramount to overall health and wellness as it plays a major role in immune health. Compromising the integrity of the gut can cause symptoms like gas, bloat, distention, constipation, diarrhea, and other GI related issues in the short term. Prolonged gut dysfunction can lead to a plethora of other complications from acne, thyroid issues and hormonal imbalance, high blood pressure, adrenal dysfunction, weight gain and even mental illnesses.
Supplementing with glutamine will help keep and restore the integrity of the gut to maintain overall health and wellness. That’s why we have included 3500 mg (3.5G) of L-glutamine in GI assist to restore gut health and aide in detoxing the body of any and all harmful toxins threatening overall health and function!
