- METAGENICS:ENDEFEN GI SUPPORT 420G
A supplement by Metagenics designed to support the healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. If the digestive system is not functioning properly, harmful bacteria may prosper in the gastrointestinal tract comprimising one's immune health.
The formulation of this supplement addresses multiple factors that contibute to gastrointestinal health.
Probiotics as well as prebiotics (arabinogalactans) are included in this formulation. Prebiotics work similarly to probiotics in supporting proper digestion and they support the healthy balance of good bacteria. Prebiotics also help to reduce constipation and support proper bowel functioning by lowering the pH in the gastrointestinal tract. High pH levels in the digestive tract are accompanied with many symptoms of digestive ailments like Chrohn's disease.
Soy Lecithin and astaxanthin have protective effects on the gastric environment and help the muscles of the digestive tract push food along while fighting inflammation within the tract. Additionally, the breakdown of fats may be assisted with the by-products of soy lecithin.
Endefen also contains d-mannose which can help to support the urinary tract. D-Mannose is antibacterial, and when taken orally it helps to coat the lining of the urinary tract. This helps to stop bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract, and it may help to reduce the occurrence of a urinary tract infection.
