GI & Muscle Helper™ contains glutamine, the primary amino acid that naturally occurs in the structure of the GI tract. It is also used by GI tract cells to produce energy. In fact, more GI tract energy is derived from the metabolism of glutamine than from glucose. Supplemental glutamine is immediately available for digestive tract nutrition.*
Glutamine is also a major component of muscle and is needed for muscle health. GI & Muscle Helper™ can also be added to our Daily Protein Plus™ to boost muscle recovery from exercise. As your kidneys metabolize glutamine, bicarbonate is produced, assisting in maintaining proper blood pH.*
Our GI & Muscle Helper™ also contains N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG), a key nutrient that helps form mucin within the digestive tract. Mucin is a mucoprotein that acts as a lubricant, forming a natural barrier that helps protect the digestive lining. Adequate mucin supports healthy intestinal permeability, assisting digestion and absorption of food and nutrients. NAGs have been shown to interact with many cell receptors on organisms or food components existing within the GI tract, helping to support healthy digestive processes.*
Digestive problems can use up to ten fold the amount of structural nutrients, compared to a digestive tract that is working well. If you have such issues it is important to solve them. See our Digestive Health section for more assistance, as needed.
