IPS is a proprietary blend of amino acid and botanical compounds and other synergistic constituents, providing support for healthy gut function, specifically as it relates to permeability and intestinal mucosa integrity.
IPS is a comprehensive Intestinal Permeability Support (IPS) supplement. With a total surface area larger than the size of a tennis court, the intestine represents the major interface between the body and the environment. This vast area is designed to assure the efficient uptake of nutrients.
Paradoxically, it must simultaneously exclude many substances such as microorganisms, toxins, food allergens, and endotoxins to maintain health. As the largest immune organ with a full complement of immune cells (T cells, B cells, mast cells and macrophages), the intestine secretes large amounts of a specific antibody, secretory IgA (sIgA). sIgA binds specifically to antigens and microorganisms to prevent their attachment and uptake by the gut mucosa.
Imbalanced immune function can alter intestinal permeability due to inflammation, decreased sIgA, stress, and decreased nutritional status. When the intestinal epithelium becomes injured or compromised, chronic health disturbances may result.
IPS is a unique formula designed to address the specific issue of altered intestinal permeability, supplying a comprehensive array of nutritional factors to support healthy intestinal function. For example, L-Glutamine supports tissues that turn over rapidly, such as the immune system’s intestinal epithelium and components.
Additionally, glutamine has been found to promote sIgA production. D-Glucosamine Sulfate is an amino sugar, which is a key building block in the production of connective tissue and the basement membrane to which the intestinal mucosa is anchored. Glutathione helps to maintain the internal redox environment to inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, glutathione levels are linked with healthy (anti) aging and proper immune function.
Gamma oryzanol supplies ferulic acid and phytosterol and provides significant antioxidant activity. Gamma oryzanol supports the GI tract’s integrity, helping balance pro-inflammatory mediators and supporting the normal glandular activity of the stomach and intestine. Tillandsia contains many vitamins, minerals and other compounds such as coumarin and resins that support healthy intestinal mucosa.
Jerusalem artichoke is a ready source of fructooligosaccharides that promote the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria.
