What’s Inside Each Dose Of Gastro Secure?Gastro Secure includes more than a dozen ingredients linked to better gut health. Every dose comes with the following:
Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopheryl succinate)
Vitamin E is fat soluble, so it’s absorbed best when it is consumed with fat. It’s not called a vitamin for nothing, either, because it’s vital for whole body health. Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that can protect against oxidative stress. It’s also important in heart and liver health, as it can reduce disease risk factors in both organs.
In many people with gut problems, the underlying issue is digestive enzyme imbalance. Gastro Secure resets this balance with several types of enzymes. Our polysaccharolytic blend includes phytase, amylase, alpha-galactosidase, glucoamylase, pectinase, lactase, diastase, cellulase, hemicellulase and invertase. Together, these enzymes work to break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars, and rigid polysaccharides into processible nutrients.
Our protease blend contains an array of protease and peptidase enzymes. They work together to break down proteins for easier digestion and better absorption. Protease enzymes may have other health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Lipase is the primary enzyme responsible for digesting fats, and a deficiency in lipase can make it difficult to process fats without discomfort. Every dose of Gastro Secure delivers additional lipase enzymes to fortify your gut against difficult-to-digest foods.
Every dose of Gastro Secure also includes our antioxidant blend. Antioxidants have far-reaching, positive effects on the body, as they bind with the free radicals that cause oxidative stress. This makes them a good choice for fighting inflammation, including the inflammation that results from some digestive disorders.
Papaya leaf contains a good bit of fiber and the compound papain, which is unique to the plant. Papain is an effective protease enzyme that can reduce heartburn and constipation in people suffering from IBS, according to one study.
Marshmallow Root Extract
Marshmallow root is associated with a number of health benefits, including some positive effects on the digestive system. One study found that marshmallow root could reduce constipation, heartburn, intestinal colic, and gastric ulcers. Another study discovered that marshmallow root could help repair cells that line the intestines and reduce inflammation.
Ginger root is a popular ingredient in supplements and traditional medicine, as it can alleviate many digestive issues. Specifically, ginger is effective against several forms of nausea, including morning sickness. It can also improve gastric emptying in people with functional dyspepsia.
Turmeric, and the spices derived from it, are rich in antioxidant compounds. This can help reduce inflammation throughout the body, including in the digestive system. Turmeric may also boost the body’s antioxidant capacity in that it can stimulate nearby antioxidants and improve their ability to neutralize free radicals.
Fennel is a top choice for IBS patients, as it can stimulate the flow of digestive juices from the GI tract. Fennel is also rich in fiber and a natural antacid, so it can relieve an ailing gut in several ways.
Gotu Kola Leaf And Stem Extract
Artichoke Leaf Extract
Artichoke leaves are packed with nutrition, can reduce blood sugar and help control levels of HDL (good) and LDL (bad) cholesterol. In the GI tract, artichoke provides inulin, a source of fiber that nourishes the probiotic bacteria in the gut.
Bladderwrack algae is a seaweed native to both Atlantic and Pacific coasts. It is rich in many vitamins and minerals, but when it comes to digestive health, it’s bladderwrack’s fiber content that stands out. The fiber present in bladderwrack can promote bowel regularity and nourish your gut’s good bacteria.
Aloe Vera Leaf
Aloe vera leaf has long been used in traditional medicine, as it possesses potent anti-inflammatory effects. When supplemented, it acts as a gentle, natural laxative that can relieve constipation.
Peppermint leaf is a popular addition to teas and is associated with several GI-related benefits. Research studies have found that peppermint leaf reduced the symptoms of IBS much better than a placebo, and it appears to have benefits in people suffering from chemotherapy-related nausea.
What Isn’t Inside Each Dose Of Gastro Secure?
A gut-balancing supplement isn’t much use if it contains ingredients that irritate the GI tract. That’s why we’ve worked hard to remove any potential allergens from Gastro Secure. There’s zero dairy, lactose, peanuts, soy, sugar and wheat inside.
Gastro Secure Is Formulated To Soothe An Aching GI System
A healthy gut is linked to better metabolism, better nutrition, better immune function and better overall health. It can be a challenge to keep your gut in balance, though. That’s what Gastro Secure is formulated to do, with an array of ingredients selected for their beneficial effects on the GI system.
