G.I. Fortify

supports gastrointestinal health

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Bulk-Forming Laxative
  • Blend Of High-Impact Fibre, Herbs And Nutrients

G.I. Fortify provides far-reaching support for constipation. Psyllium, or Plantago ovata, is a valued source of soluble fibre. Soluble fibre absorbs water to form a gel, increasing stool volume when taken with appropriate amounts of water to support larger and softer stools for healthy bowel movements. As the bulk moves through the intestine, it also helps to collect and eliminate other waste and toxins from the intestinal walls. Soluble fibre is fermented slowly in the colon by intestinal microflora, which further helps increase fecal mass. The fermentation process produces short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which have protective effects for healthy colon cell function as they are extremely important energy sources for the colon and may regulate colonic transit. Furthermore, SCFAs keep the intestinal environment acidic, providing optimal conditions for a healthy intestinal microflora. Flax is an additional source of soluble fibre, and also contains fatty acids and lignans. G.I. Fortify also contains the amino acid l-Glutamine, plus a combination of deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), aloe, slippery elm and marshmallow root. Additionally, it includes an equal proportion of three fruit extracts, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia bellirica and Emblica officinalis, which have a long traditional history of use in the Ayurvedic medicine Triphala, literally translated as “three fruits”.
