Gut Support system from Dr.Health Flex-5oz


 Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, which is just one of many problems that can affect your gut. Did you know that nearly 60 million Americans—that’s approximately 20 percent of our nation’s population—have IBS? It’s true, and it makes for some mighty uncomfortable people because IBS symptoms can include pain, diarrhea, constipation, cramping, bloating and more.


IBS can result from the overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria in the small intestine, from food sensitivities and more, including lack of adequate healthy bacteria or probiotics, parasites in the gut, a zinc deficiency, inflammation, heavy metal toxicity and more.


Then there’s leaky gut syndrome, which also can have symptoms such as bloating, gas, cramping, pain, aches and food sensitivities. Unlike IBS and IBD—Inflammatory Bowel Disease including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and more—leaky gut syndrome isn’t as well known or as identifiable.


What is known about leaky gut syndrome is that it is most likely caused by poor diet, excessive stress, toxic overload or bacterial imbalance. Leaky gut is also known for its uncomfortable symptoms and the idea that there is intestinal permeability or hyperpermeability—or areas in the lining of our intestines that are usually “tight knit” and won’t let harmful items such as toxins, unhealthy bacteria, food particles, GMOs and even gluten through that, instead, allow them to pass through the lining of the intestine into the bloodstream—spreading throughout the body to wreak havoc.


In other words, the gut lining isn’t sealed properly so “bad things” pass through it when they shouldn’t.


The result?


A “leaky” gut that could not only be adversely affecting your gut health, but also other areas as well.


In fact, leaky gut may very well be causing allergies, IBS, IBD, asthma, arthritis, bodily inflammation, other autoimmune diseases, skin problems, weight gain, headaches, energy slumps, metabolism slowdowns and more†—affecting literally thousands or millions of people.


Some people don’t even realize that a leaky gut may be at the root of their symptoms, so it’s difficult to even begin to address the problem.


That’s why I have the “guts” to introduce to you my  Gut Repair Formula. It’s designed to help heal leaky gut and to repair the digestive lining—and it’s good for anyone with food allergies or sensitivities, joint issues, gas, bloating, malabsorption, bowel unhealth and more.


Dr.Health Flex has formulated Leaky Gut Repair Formula with these main ingredients:


L-Glutamine (L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, a unique form of glutamine)

Licorice root

N-Acetyl-Glucosamine (NAG)


Slipper7 Elm



Now, let’s take a closer look at them and how they can support your gut health and beyond.


L-Glutamine (L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine): L-glutamine, or glutamine, is a common amino acid that is important for a variety of bodily functions. It’s also one of the most important nutrients for healing leaky gut syndrome because it is what’s considered the “preferred fuel” for the cells lining the mucosa of the small intestine.†


That means that it can be extremely helpful for helping to heal a leaky gut. Glutamine acts as an anti-inflammatory and supports the growth and repair of the intestinal lining as well as protecting and coating cell walls from irritants.† L-Glutamine is also known for helping to heal a leaky gut by acting as a sort of “band aid” to protect it from any further damage.†


Glutamine can also prevent the movement of bad bacteria from the gut to the bloodstream—important for fighting the symptoms of leaky gut.† L-Glutamine also improves IBS and diarrhea by balancing mucus production.† Interestingly, a study in the Lancet found that supplementing with L-glutamine decreased intestinal permeability†, while a study in the British Journal of Surgery found that L-glutamine offered benefits for ulcerative colitis and for inflammatory bowel disease. †


L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine—a cousin to L-Glutamine—is more stable, soluble and absorbable than regular L-glutamine is—making L-Alanyl-Glutamine more effective and faster than L-glutamine at increasing gut integrity health.† Of course, I wanted to choose the most effective delivery form of glutamine for my Leaky Gut Repair Formula, which is why I picked L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine.


Next up is licorice root.


Licorice Root: Let’s face it. It’s difficult to avoid stress in our lives. That’s why licorice root is so important. It’s an adaptogenic herb that helps to balance cortisol (the stress hormone) levels and supports healthy acid production in the stomach.† Licorice root also supports the body’s natural processes for maintaining the mucosal lining of the stomach and duodenum † Licorice root is especially helpful for those whose leaky gut is caused by emotional stress.† How? Licorice root has demulcent (soothing inflamed or irritated tissue); anti-ulcer; anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties.† It also contains glycyrrhizic acid and another related compound that appear to help with the healing of the gut, including gastric ulcers.†


N-Acetyl-Glucosamine (NAG): Did you know that an inability to make enough glucosamine can cause the intestinal wall to “thin,” allowing toxins and not fully digested food particles into the bloodstream? It’s true. NAG supports the intestinal mucosa’s protective glycoprotein cover, and helps to calm the intestinal tract of gastrointestinal irritations.† It is also necessary for the body to produce glycoproteins, glycolipids, and mucopolysaccharides—important compounds found in the mucous membranes and tissues of the gut. Adequate NAG levels help to keep the intestinal mucosa intact and strong.†


Quercetin: Wow. There’s so much to say about quercetin. Quercetin supports a healthy gut barrier function by sealing the gut and supporting the proper creation of tight junction proteins for making sure the gut “seals” correctly.† Quercetin also reduces the release of histamine, which is common in food intolerance or sensitivities. Newer studies also point towards quercetin’s positive role in the healing of ulcerative colitis.†


One of the interesting areas concerning quercetin and a leaky gut has to do with mast cells, which are the cells responsible for allergy symptoms such as a runny nose or congestion. When mast cells are unstable, then they release histamine, the chemical responsible for causing allergy symptoms. However, we all have mast cells in the gut, too, and when they become destabilized, then they can cause a leaky gut. This is where quercetin comes in again. Quercetin stabilizes mast cells and prevents the release of histamine and other chemicals from those mast cells—thereby preventing leaky gut.†


Slippery Elm: Slippery elm is part of my Leaky Gut Repair Formula because it contains mucilage, a substance that becomes thick and gel-like when mixed with water. In so doing, it coats and soothes areas such as the intestines, mouth, throat and stomach.† In short, slipper elm has a soothing and calming effect on inflamed or damaged gut lining.† Additionally, slippery elm has antioxidants that help to relieve the symptoms of inflammatory bowel conditions.†


Slippery elm also can increase mucus secretions that can help to protect the gut from excess acid and against ulcer formation.†


MSM: Short for methylsulfonyl-methane, MSM has been noted for its benefits for allergies, arthritis and joint pain.†MSM, however, is also being studied for its gut benefits. It is known that rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, is tied to the passage of toxins and other substances through the gut lining or wall and into the bloodstream. In other words, those conditions are associated with leaky gut syndrome.


MSM is sometimes said to help with allergies, constipation and other such problems†—all of which have to do with the health of the intestinal wall. The truth is that MSM may play a role in improving gut health and intestinal permeability.† Plus, adding N-Acetyl-Glucosamine (NAG) to MSM may even make it more beneficial for gut integrity.† That’s why you’ll find both MSM and NAG in my Leaky Gut Repair Formula.


Zinc: Found to be quite effective at tightening up the intestinal tight junctions,† zinc is a must-have nutrient in my Leaky Gut Repair Formula. In the body, zinc is required for growth and healing—particularly important to cells which have a rapid turnover rate. The cells in the small intestine mucosa are some of those that have an extremely rapid turnover rate because they are replaced about every four days. That’s another reason why zinc is so important to the health of the intestinal walls. Zinc also has anti-inflammatory effects, which help to stability the membranes of those all-important mast cells we discussed earlier.† Zinc is also necessary for rebuilding the intestinal lining and keeping it strong.†


In fact, studies say that supplementing with zinc can turn around intestinal permeability—or leaky gut—in those with Crohn’s disease in remission.†
