This dietary supplement offers support to the mucosal barrier of the GI tract or gut, accelerating repair, and restoring healthy function. It helps lower inflammation and prevents toxins from leaking through the gut, while also soothing the intestinal lining. Glutamine is the primary active ingredient in this formula and heals the mucosal barrier cells and tissue. It also helps reduce the volume of toxins that penetrate through the barrier into the bloodstream, thus strengthening the body’s immune function.
Your First-Line Immune Defense
The mucosal barrier refers to all of the mucous membranes that comprise the primary interface between the external environment and the internal environment of the body. Support Mucosa targets the most critical barrier, which lines your intestines. When working effectively, this mucosal barrier lets beneficial things into your general circulation and keeps harmful ones out.
Support Mucosa Upgraded – August 2020
We removed ingredients which may be contraindicated for patients concerned with Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and replaced them with substances known to assist in healthy maintenance and repair of the intestinal barrier’s mucosa, without the potentially negative effects on bacterial balance.
We removed Licorice Root, Slippery Elm, and N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine. While valuable for numerous therapeutic purposes, these ingredients have the potential to feed the bacteria which contribute to SIBO.
We added Cat’s Claw Bark Extract (300 mg per serving) and Phosphatidylcholine (from sunflower seed, 300 mg per serving). These ingredients have recently increased in popularity for their broad health benefits, including specific benefits to the intestinal barrier.
While researching the Support Mucosa upgrade, there were several ingredients that rose to the top of the list – based on published studies as well as input obtained from customers, physicians, and manufacturing partners. Robust amounts of Cat’s Claw Bark Extract Phosphatidylcholine (derived from sunflower) were the best option.
Nourish and Restore
Healing of the mucosal barrier can occur when the causes are removed and targeted nutrition is delivered. Support Mucosa is specifically formulated to support the mucosal barrier of the gut wall, restoring healthy form and function to tissue. It plays several roles in soothing and restoring the intestinal lining.
A principal component in the formula is the amino acid Glutamine. Glutamines ability to support the mucosal barrier cells and tissue is well known in nutritional science.
Like each of the BioMatrix formulas, Support Mucosa’s formulation is the result of decades of collective clinical experience with virtually every major line of nutrition product available and his appreciation for the subtle interactions between botanicals. And given the array of ingredients, each with diverse contributions to health, its benefits extend far beyond the primary purpose of healing and strengthening the intestinal wall.
