Zinc Carnosine is a dietary supplement that provides a natural approach in helping to maintain the health and integrity of the gastrointestinal lining.
The integrity of the gastrointestinal lining is essential to ensuring the absorption of beneficial substances and nutrients as well as barring entry to harmful substances and bacteria. Environmental toxins, chronic use of medications and alcohol, excessive stress, and certain pathogens can be particularly damaging to this delicate lining. These factors can increase free radical activity and activate inflammatory processes that can compromise the intestinal barrier and set the stage for altered absorptive pathways, impaired immune function, increased allergic sensitivity, infection, and gastrointestinal disorders. By helping strengthen and repair gastric (stomach)and intestinal tissues and enhancing their resistance to injury, Zinc Carnosine can help restore and maintain healthy gastrointestinal structure and function.
Zinc L-carnosine complex: This unique, patented compound combines the essential mineral zinc with L-carnosine, a naturally-occurring substance with potent antioxidant and tissue-protecting activity. Research indicates zinc L-carnosine has numerous attributes that support the integrity of the gastrointestinal lining. The antioxidant activity of zinc L-carnosine can help enable the gastric and intestinal mucosa to better heal and support itself against free radical damage that may occur from environmental toxins. By favorably modulating the activity of certain inflammation-promoting compounds, zinc L-carnosine also helps protect sensitive gastrointestinal tissue from irritation and inflammation that can adversely affect tissue health and intestinal comfort. Zinc L-carnosine can further protect the stomach and intestines from injury by promoting healthy mucus secretions that lubricate the passage of food and defend against the erosive effects of natural stomach acids.
L-Glutamine: The most common free amino acid in the bloodstream, L-glutamine is the principal dietary fuel of the intestinal cells lining the small intestine and plays an important role in cellular repair and maintaining healthy gastrointestinal function. L-glutamine is essential for the normal function of intestinal immune cells and increases the secretion of protective bowel immune gamma globulins (IgA). It also decreases intestinal permeability (“leakiness”) and has been shown to limit mucosal barrier damage by inhibiting production of inflammation promoting compounds. Although people are normally able to make enough L-glutamine to meet the body’s demands, insults to the gastrointestinal tract from illness, trauma, surgery and other factors markedly increase utilization of L-glutamine for intestinal repair. Supplementation with L-glutamine can help ensure adequate intake to meet the increased demands of the body and provide support and protection for the intestinal lining.
