    GI Sustain Leaky Gut Syndrome Medical Food by Metagenics

    Metagenics GI Sustain Leaky Gut Syndrome Medical Food - 29.6 oz (1 lb 13.6 oz) (840 g)

    Metagenics GI Sustain is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support, including amino acids and prebiotic fiber, combined with readily digestible, low-allergenic-potential macronutrients for patients with leaky gut syndrome. Featuring L-glutamine and isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO), Metagenics GI Sustain Medical Food supports intestinal mucosal integrity and promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria to address dysbiosis associated with leaky gut syndrome.

    • Supports microbial balance.
    • Nourishes the cells of the colonic mucosa.
    • Features low-allergy-potential rice protein concentrate supplemented with L-lysine HCl and L-threonine for an improved protein source.
    • Provides rice syrup solids as a natural energy source.
    • Provides a readily absorbed and metabolized lipid source.
    • Provides the prebiotic IMO to selectively nourish beneficial bacteria, including lactobacillus and bifidobacteria.
    • IMO is a gentle fiber that is naturally sweet but has a low-glycemic index.
    • Formulated with nutrients such as zinc gluconate and L-glutamine to nutritionally support gastrointestinal mucosa integrity.

    Leaky Gut Syndrome
    Leaky Gut Syndrome (or "increased intestinal permeability") describes damage to the intestinal mucosal lining, causing leaks in this protective filter. These enlarged spaces between the cells of the gut wall allow undigested food and other potentially harmful compounds (e.g., bacteria, toxins, waste) to enter the bloodstream. This can trigger digestive and other symptoms, such as bloating, gas, bowel irregularities, increased food sensitivities, and compromised metabolic detoxification. It can also result in pro-inflammatory signals throughout the body that may lead to the development of other chronic conditions.

    Suggested causes include chronic inflammation, immune function, bacterial overgrowth, lifestyle choices (e.g., poor diet, heavy alcohol consumption), food sensitivities, and frequent or long-term use of medications that influence intestinal microbial balance or pain relievers that impact intestinal lining integrity.

    • About 70% of the body's immune system is found in the digestive tract.
    • Practically any organ or body tissue can become affected by food allergies created by a leaky gut.
    • A leaky gut can also hamper the body's ability to absorb vital nutrients.
     
    About Metagenics
    Today, chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have become so common that most people don't remember what it's like to be in excellent health. And if they're not feeling their best, they can't be their best. In truth, many chronic health conditions are preventable. They're the result of years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and prolonged exposure to stress. And leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle-by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life-many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed. The solution seems so simple, and yet, the incidence of chronic illness is continuing to rise at an alarming rate. At Metagenics, they're aiming to change all that.

    Addressing Chronic Illness with Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes
    Their groundbreaking therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) programs have helped tens of thousands of chronic illness sufferers all over the world regain their health-so they can once again enjoy their lives to the fullest. Not quick, short term fixes, these programs work because they're focused on helping people develop healthy, life-long habits that they can easily incorporate into their busy schedules. Their TLC programs are available only from specially trained licensed health care professionals-the people qualified to recommend and tailor a regimen that's unique to each individual's needs.

    Patient Success Depends on Provider Success
    Let's face it. Most doctors' offices have neither the time nor the expertise to provide the individualized lifestyle counseling that's necessary to effect real change. In designing their TLC program, they asked health care providers to tell us what it would take to implement TLC successfully in their practice. The answer was teamwork-getting support staff involved, enlisting practice extenders and ensuring smooth office flow. Today, providers who implement their TLC programs overwhelmingly report that they're busier and more successful than ever in helping patients achieve their desired health outcomes.

    Addressing the Root Cause of Illness through Science-Based Nutrition
    Back in 1983, they had a big idea: the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by positively influencing what makes them unique-their genes. They called it realizing "genetic potential" for good health. Today, it's known as the science of nutrigenomics-the study of food as one of the most important environmental modifiers of gene expression in determining health and disease patterns. Through their substantial and ongoing commitment to nutrigenomic research, they've been able to identify natural compounds with powerful therapeutic applications, to be used in their science-based TLC programs, medical foods, and nutraceuticals.

    Setting the Standard in Research, Quality & Innovation
    Knowing that professionals rely on us to make people feel better isn't something they take lightly. It's the reason they lead the industry in research, professional education, and quality manufacturing. But they're also brave enough to search for the next big thing to make an even greater impact on health. The result? An impressive list of patented formulas and ingredients, and a revolutionary product development process to help make natural approaches even safer and more effective.
    Suggested Use

    Blend, shake, or briskly stir about 2 level scoops (60 grams) of GI Sustain into 8 ounces of chilled water or juice twice daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. For highly sensitive individuals, consider reducing consumption to 1/2 to 1 scoop with 4 to 5 ounces of chilled water or juice twice daily during the first 3 to 4 days before starting a full daily dose.
