Nutrients and herbs act in synergy to support optimal gastrointestinal function, a vital part of maintaining a healthy immune system and overall wellness.The gastrointestinal (GI) tract requires more than a healthy probiotic population to support a balanced and effective digestive process. The intestines are a mucous-lined organ that performs two vital functions: absorbing nutrients and water and separating unneeded substances for waste elimination. Optimal GI Plus includes a targeted blend of nutrients that support healthy mucous membranes and connective tissues in the GI tract to help support healthy bowel motility, an effective gut barrier and digestive comfort. Key components include herbs known for their natural soothing and strengthening effects, specialized amino acids and compounds such as superoxide dismutase to support normal detoxification pathways.Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a highly beneficial sulfur compound that may help support healthy detoxification processes and connective tissue, including tissues in the digestive tract. Waste processing in the kidneys is an important step in the digestive process to isolate the nutrients needed for the body from the waste products of normal metabolism. Molybdenum, an essential trace mineral found in the bones, liver and kidneys, was added to this formula for its biochemical role in the waste production process. Molybdenum may also help to minimize the potential side effects of MSM. Silymarin, an active compound from milk thistle, may help support normal functions of the liver, an organ involved in filtering blood from the digestive tract.In order for the body to rid itself of waste, fiber is needed in the diet to provide bulk for bowel movements. Each serving of Optimal GI Plus provides 1 gram of citrus pectin, a natural fruit fiber that may help to support normal waste elimination. Aloe vera, slippery elm bark and marshmallow root are traditional herbs used to support healthy mucous membranes, which contain compounds that may be soothing to tissues in the GI tract. Optimal GI Plus contains a full spectrum of ingredients to support tissue strength, normal bowel movement and waste elimination and healthy detoxification pathways in a pure powder format that can be added to smoothies or juice for a delicious way to optimize digestive health.
