GI-Encap 180 - Thorne
Botanicals that support the GI tract, and are especially soothing for the esophagus and stomach*
GI Encap supports the health of the esophagus and stomach.* Its mucilaginous botanical ingredients soothe the mucous membranes of the GI tract.* Can be taken out of the capsule for a soothing tea.*
Aloe vera demonstrates significant gastroprotective effects via a number of mechanisms, including mast cell stabilization and antioxidant effects.* Only the inner gel filet is used in this product, alleviating any laxative effect.*
Deglycyrrhizinated licorice is well known for its ability to optimize mucus production by gastrointestinal mucosal cells and to promote a healthy GI tract.* Licorice root preparations have been used for many years for the nutritional support of the stomach and duodenum.* Glycyrrhizin is removed from the extract to prevent a rise in blood pressure that has been observed in some individuals taking whole licorice root.*
Slippery elm bark (Ulmus rubra) and marshmallow root (Althea officinalis) contain mucilaginous components that are soothing to the digestive tract.*
To soothe esophageal irritation, GI-Encap can be taken out of the capsule and mixed with warm water for a soothing tea.
