  • Protects the gastrointestinal tract from oxidative damage and provides support for a healthy intestinal environment
  • Provides a gluten free protein source for those with gluten sensitivities
  • Targeted nutrients that help support the flow of bile and keep the bowels moving efficiently
  • Excellent multivitamin and mineral supplement for those with nutrient malabsorption
  • Low allergy potential, gluten free, and low glycemic load and index

Feature Summary

RestorX is a gluten-free formula which contains a number of nutrients known to support the restoration of intestinal permeability, and optimize gut barrier integrity and function. L-glutamine is the primary amino acid source for intestinal cells, and also regulates intercellular junction integrity.1 N-acetyl glucosamine (NAG) provides the substrate for glycosaminoglycan formation, often impaired with increased intestinal permeability.2 Zinc is included, with a deficiency shown to disrupt tight junctions and alter membrane permeability.3

Antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, grape seed extract, milk thistle, and beta carotene, protect the GI from oxidative damage, and provide support for hepatic detoxification of compounds associated with dysbiosis and intestinal dysfunction.4,5,6 Quercetin has been shown to be critical to intestinal integrity, in part by stabilizing mast cells which regulate intestinal function and tight junction integrity.7,8,9 Bifidobacterium longum (patented strain BB536), a probiotic, has been found to prevent damage to intestinal cells and to increase production of tight junction cell proteins, which improves intestinal integrity.10 The use of organic-sprouted brown rice as the gluten-free protein source allows those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities to safely restore intestinal wall health.

Allergens:

Contains no artificial colours, preservatives, or sweeteners; no dairy, wheat, gluten, yeast, egg, salt, tree nuts, or GMOs. Sealed for your protection. Do not use if seal is broken. For freshness, store in a cool, dry place. Store in a light-resistant container.

Contraindications

For adults only. Consult a health care practitioner if you have nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, have kidney stones, or are following a low protein diet. If you have a gastrointestinal lesion/ ulcer, are taking an anticoagulant/blood thinner, anti-inflammatory or antibiotic, or are having surgery, consult a health care practitioner prior to use. Discontinue use and consult a health care practitioner if hypersensitivity/allergy occurs or if symptoms of digestive upset (e.g. nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) occur, worsen, or persist beyond 3 days. Zinc supplementation can cause a copper deficiency. Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are taking antibiotics or nitroglycerin, have an immune-compromised condition (e.g. AIDS, lymphoma, patients undergoing long-term corticosteroid treatment). Keep out of reach of children.
