About GlutaShield

GlutaShield is a product that has been specially designed to help keep the GI (gastrointestinal) lining healthy. The GI’s barrier function is significantly improved due to the formula’s carefully-selected compounds, which mainly consist of nutrients that support the intestinal epithelium. The primary purpose of the gut mucosal epithelium is to enable the body to digest and absorb all nutrients it receives via food or supplement intake while preventing unwanted food particles, microbes, and toxins from entering the body directly.

The ingredients in GlutaShield boost GI integrity, protect gut mucosa health, and provide the gut lining with the nutrition necessary for its healthy function.

Importance of Healthy GI Tract

Numerous studies in the past 20 years have shown a correlation between gut health and a wide range of health concerns including endocrine disorders, autoimmune diseases, and cancer, as well as issues related to one’s mental and gut health. This could be attributed to the millions of microorganisms that live in the intestines, called the gut microbiome. Each individual has between 300-500 different species of these bacteria in their GI tract. Among them are bacteria that can cause harm and others that are extremely beneficial to our health. Maintaining a balance between the good and bad bacteria ensures a healthy gut function while research has also evidenced that having a broad spectrum of good bacteria in the gut can also help fight obesity, enhance symptoms of depression, improve the function of the immune system, and many more.

Now, every health gastrointestinal tract has a good-functioning mucosal barrier that serves as the guard which closes the door to toxins, food antigens, and harmful microorganisms, preventing from entering the bloodstream.

Factors that can affect the integrity of that barrier are poor nutrition (i.e., lots of processed foods), microbial imbalance, food intolerance, and overconsumption of alcohol. When the epithelial barrier is compromised, you experience symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome; a condition that is believed to be the root of several chronic diseases. This is where GlutaShield enters the equation with a formula that helps maintain and regenerate the enterocytes of the small intestine and, at the same time, improves the health of the gut mucosal barrier, strengthens tight junctions, and promotes normal inflammatory response.

GlutaShield Ingredients

Deglycyrrhized Licorice Root Extract – A specially processed form of licorice root that helps maintain a healthy mucosal surface due to the glycyrrhizin-free, biologically-active flavonoids it contains. It has been shown to provide extra protection to the gastric mucosa too.

Aloe Vera Leaf Gel Extract – A plant that is widely preferred for its beneficial anti-inflammatory attributes. According to recent studies, Aloe Vera’s ability to promote the production or healthy mucus in the intestines and balance the acid levels in the stomach makes it particularly beneficial to the gastric mucosa.

L-Glutamine - It is the main compound of GlutaShield and the primary source of fuel for the small intestinal cells. L-Glutamine is also a vital amino acid when tissue repair is required, and the means enterocytes use to sustain the health of the mucosa. When we are experiencing elevated stress, L-Glutamine kicks in and contributes to the protection and regeneration of a healthy mucosal barrier.

N-Acetyl Glucosamine – An ingredient that boosts the production of mucus within the gastrointestinal tract, which depletes in people suffering from health problems related to their GI tract.

Zinc – An essential micronutrient necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which requires adequate stomach acid and vitamins B1 and B6 for proper absorption. Low levels of zinc are tied to chronic diseases, mineral deficiencies, problems with the immune system, inflammation, and issues related to the healing of the digestive lining (aka Leaky Gut), which, in turns, is associated with irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and more. Zinc has been used for several decades in Japan to treat stomach disorders, such as dyspepsia and ulcers as it has been found to be able to stabilize the gut lining and stimulate the repair of the gut.

Additional Notes:

  • The formula does NOT contain artificial flavors and colors, yeast or gluten.
