"The gastrointestinal tract is a long muscular tube that functions as the food processor for the human body. The digestive system includes the following organs: the mouth and salivary glands, stomach, the small and large intestines, colon, liver, pancreas, and the gall bladder. The gastrointestinal tract is not a passive system; rather, it has the capability to sense and react to the materials that are passed through it. For a healthy digestive system, every person requires different food selections that matches the unique needs of their gastrointestinal tract.
An estimated 20 million Americans suffer stomach discomfort caused by erosion of the protective mucosal lining. A healthy mucosal lining is required to prevent acidic digestive juices from corroding the stomach wall.
Therefore, protecting against known factors that damage the gastric lining is essential to ensuring optimal stomach health. New and improved CarnoSoothe with PicroProtect™ combines four remarkable nutrient compounds that naturally protect the health of the gastric lining.*
The recommended daily dose of two capsules of CarnoSoothe supplies 50 milligrams of PepZin GI® zinc L-carnosine. Scientific evidence indicates this novel chelated compound of zinc and L-carnosine works synergistically to support delicate stomach tissue.1-3*
Two capsules of CarnoSoothe also supply 500 milligrams of a standardized deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extract. Licorice extract reduces the formation of pro-inflammatory molecules, spurs the formation of prostaglandins that support healthy stomach mucosa, and contains gastroprotective flavonoid compounds.4-7*
Picrorhiza kurroa, a traditional herb grown in the Himalayan Mountains, has been shown to help support a healthy stomach wall.* Its extracts are now being found to have potent antioxidant, immune-supporting, and unique activities that clearly have a role in gastric protection.*8,9
Lastly, the formula also supplies 750 milligrams of Nutri-Cran® GI, a patented blend of cranberry, blueberry, and grape seed extracts. Rich in proanthocyanidins and other antioxidant compounds, cranberry and other plant-based extracts have been shown to be beneficial for gastrointestinal health.11-13
