Intestamine powder, supplied by Douglas Laboratories®, is a unique and convenient dietary supplement formula for gastrointestinal support.
Intestamine powder provides significant amounts of L-glutamine, an amino acid that is important in maintaining normal structure and function of the gastrointestinal tract; NutraFlora® FOS, which selectively provides nourishment for beneficial intestinal bacteria; acacia fiber, which is fermented into short chain fatty acids for the lower intestine; and N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, which is used as a structural component of intestinal mucous secretions.
Intestamine powder is a taste-neutral powder that mixes easily with water and other beverages.
Glutamine. The amino acid glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, structure, and function of the entire gastro-intestinal (GI) tract, and its extensive immune system. Glutamine is perhaps the major energy source for intestinal cells, and under conditions of physiological stress the GI tract benefits greatly from extra dietary glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in blood, and is a vehicle for nitrogen transport.
Glutamine-consuming tissues, such as the GI tract, the liver and the immune system, use glutamine for the synthesis of nucleotides, proteins and amino sugars. Glutamine carries potentially toxic ammonia to the kidneys for excretion, and participates in maintaining normal acid-base balance.
Intestamine® may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to provide dietary support for a healthy GI tract.
Each scoop provides:
- L-Glutamine – 5,000 mg
- NutraFlora® FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) – 250 mg
- Acacia Fiber (soluble dietary fiber) – 500 mg
- N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine (from crab and shrimp) – 250 mg
Adults take 1 scoop twice daily or as directed by one of our health coach professionals.
Individuals with GI conditions should consult a health care professional for appropriate use of Intestamine® for their nutritional support. Intestamine® is unflavored and contains no additives. It disperses easily in water and other beverages with little impact on taste. For best results, take with cold or room-temperature foods or liquids. Do not take with foods or liquids that are hot or highly acidic.
Intestamine® can be combined with probiotic dietary supplements, such as Douglas Laboratories’ Multi- Probiotic 15 Billion or similar products delivering beneficial living bacteria.
