Gut Troubles? Discover What’s Really Going On Inside You

An estimated 60 to 70 million people suffer from diagnosable digestive problems which, when combined with undiagnosed issues, create an epidemic more significant than some past viral outbreaks. Around 234,000 people die from gastrointestinal problems each year, with 14 million hospitalized and a further 1.9 million becoming disabled due to GI issues. Many of these problems are caused by leaks in the intestinal tract, otherwise known as “leaky gut.”

Natural Barrier

The lining of the intestine forms a natural barrier of cells that, when functioning correctly, only allow properly digested fats, proteins, and starches to pass through into the bloodstream. However, these cells can become damaged by inflammation triggered by several factors, such as poor diet, prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, and stress. The damage results in tears, pockets, and holes forming in the lining, which then allows unwanted and improperly digested particles to seep into the bloodstream.

Once these particles enter the bloodstream, the body’s immune system recognizes them as “foreign invaders” as they shouldn’t be in the blood. The immune system then activates antibodies to fight off the invasion, and these antibodies can then cause additional damage to the intestinal lining. As the damage worsens, the lining becomes weaker, and the holes become larger, allowing even more significant substances to pass through into the body, such as bacteria, undigested food, and toxins.

With the ingress of these substances into the body, the immune system reacts by producing more antibodies and cytokines, signaling white blood cells to combat the invaders. This fight generates oxidants, which cause irritation and inflammation throughout the body.

Health Issues

Inflammation within the body leads to many health issues. Besides causing gastrointestinal problems like irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, intestinal disturbances and rumblings, diarrhea, and upset stomachs, inflammation can also lead to allergies, cardiovascular complications, joint soreness, autoimmune diseases, eczema or skin rashes, low energy levels, among other health problems.

There are many pharmaceutical drugs available to address these symptoms. However, these cover the symptoms rather than dealing with the root cause and ensuring overall wellness.

A Natural Solution

Dr. Chris D. Meletis, a natural healing expert, spent years researching digestive health, seeking a natural means of fortifying the digestive tract. He finally discovered a combination of nine nutrients that specifically target the lining of the digestive tract and have provided relief from irritable bowel, leaky gut, constipation, diarrhea, and other GI disorders.

Dr. Meletis’ formula combines L-glutamine, deglycyrrizinated licorice (DLG), N-acetyl glucosamine, marshmallow root, berberine sulfate, cabbage powder, slippery elm, phosphatidylcholine, and gamma oryzanol. The nutrients work together to strengthen the intestinal lining, repel and resist bacteria, coat and soothe irritation and tears, attack microbes and harmful bacteria, nourish cell tissues, stimulate the creation of helpful mucus, and balance gastric juice levels.

A healthy digestive system is essential for proper nutrition and reducing inflammation in the body. Without an effectively functioning gastrointestinal tract, most of the nutritional supplements and healthy foods you eat are wasted.

Dr. Meletis’ formula is called Advanced GI Tract Solution™ and is available from Health Resources™ here or call 800-471-4007.
