IBD and Celiac Disease
Ulcerative colitis (UC) and CrohnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s disease (CD) are the most common forms of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) in humans. These diseases are characterized by cycles of chronic relapses and remissions, chronic inflammation of the intestinal mucosa and an abnormal gut micro-flora. Celiac disease is caused by an immune response to the protein gluten. It is believed to affect 1 in 200 people in the modernized world and results in a decreased ability of the body to absorb nutrients.
Digestive Enzymes & Inflammation Reduction
IBD Relief includes specialized digestive enzymes that help to prevent the exacerbation of IBD and celiac symptoms. These include AN-Peptides which are a source of DPP-IV, and which break down gluten and other proline rich proteins. Elimination of these proteins helps to prevent the initiation of an inappropriate immune response in the gut, thereby averting painful inflammation. IBD Relief also includes the natural botanical ingredients Boswellia serrata, ashwagandha and ginger for reducing inflammation and stress, as well as vitamin D3 which is important for immune system modulation. Saccharomyces boulardii also helps to reduce inflammation in the gut and protect the bowel from pathogens.
The key to the successful treatment of conditions like IBD & celiac disease is intervention based on a multiple-mechanism approach. AORÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s IBD Relief is one such formula.
