Douglas Laboratories Intestamine 

Intestamine® capsules, supplied by Douglas Laboratories®, is a unique and convenient dietary supplement formula for gastrointestinal support.* Intestamine 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.

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.*

Benefits

  • Potentially boosts immune system*
  • Potential nutritional support for the gastrointestinal tract*
  • May aid in nitrogen transport*
  • May help maintain normal intestinal permeability, mucosal cell regeneration, and structure*
  • Could provide an acid environment that favors the growth of the acid-loving beneficial Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria.*

Indications

Intestamine capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to provide dietary support for a healthy GI tract. Intestamine can be taken regularly, and can be combined with probiotic dietary supplements, such as Douglas Laboratories’ Bio-dophilus™ or similar products delivering beneficial living bacteria.*

Suggested Use

Intestamine capsules can be taken on a regular basis to maintain proper GI function. Individuals with GI and catabolic diseases should consult a health care professional for appropriate use of Intestamine capsules for their nutritional support. For best results, take with cold or room-temperature foods or liquids.*

Warning

Do not take with foods or liquids that are hot or highly acidic.*

If you have an allergy to shellfish (including crab and shrimp), you should not use this product*

Storage
