ZCG 500 provides a natural approach in helping to maintain the health and integrity of the gastrointestinal lining.
Environmental toxins, chronic use of
medications and alcohol, excessive stress, and certain pathogens can be particularly damaging to this delicate
lining. These factors can increase free radical activity and activate inflammatory processes that can compromise
the intestinal barrier and set the stage for altered absorptive pathways, impaired immune function, increased
allergic sensitivity, infection, and gastrointestinal disorders. By helping strengthen and repair gastric (stomach)
and intestinal tissues and enhancing their resistance to injury, this product can help restore and maintain healthy
gastrointestinal structure and function.
Zinc L-carnosine complex: This unique, patented compound combines the essential mineral zinc with
L-carnosine, a potent antioxidant and tissue-protecting activity. Zinc L-carnosine can help enable the gastric and intestinal mucosa to better heal and support itself against free radical damage that may occur from environmental toxins. It also helps protect sensitive gastrointestinal tissue from irritation and inflammation that can adversely affect tissue health and intestinal
comfort. Zinc L-carnosine can further protect the stomach and intestines from injury by promoting healthy
mucus secretions that lubricate the passage of food and defend against the erosive effects of natural stomach
L-Glutamine : L-glutamine is essential for the normal function of intestinal immune cells
and increases the secretion of protective bowel immune gamma globulins (IgA). It also decreases intestinal
permeability (“leakiness”) and has been shown to limit mucosal barrier damage by inhibiting production of
inflammation promoting compounds. Supplementation with L-glutamine can help
ensure adequate intake to meet the increased demands of the body and provide support and protection for
the intestinal lining.
