A Foundation for Healthy Gut Functions
The human gut has a huge impact on the entire health of our body and interestingly enough, our mind.* Overall, a healthy gut leads to better absorption of your foods, a strong immune system, healthier weight levels, and may also help improve sleep and mood.*
Nutrients in your foods, once eaten go through your stomach and into your intestinal tract. There we absorb all the beneficial nutrients — usually through a passive mechanism. But many nutrients such as amino acids, require active transporters inside our intestines to transport them from the gut and into our bloodstream.
These active transporters are activated by mRNA, an enzyme. A lot of gut health related issues such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) are often related to an improper transport of nutrients and/or increased inflammation in the gut.
The Science Behind AstraGin®:
Associated Effects of AstraGin® Based on Research Findings
AstraGin®, composed of two highly purified extracts from Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus, has shown in 16 in-vitro and 8 in-vivo studies that are published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Molecular Nutrition & Food Research and Scientific Reports to:
- Increase the absorption of peptides, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, and phytonutrients by up-regulating the absorption specific mRNA and transporters, such as SGLT1, CAT1, and GLUT4.*
- Rejuvenate ulcerated and damaged intestinal walls and reduce intestinal submucosa inflammation.* AstraGin® was shown in a hematoxylin-eosin stain and an MPO assay to reduce ulceration and unclear surfaces of intestinal epithelial cells and submucosal edema in TNBS-induced colitis rats.
- Support the digestive system by maintaining a healthy microbiota population by mending ulcerated and damaged intestinal epithelial cell surfaces for the microbiota to populate.*
- Helping support stronger immune functions by mending ulcerated epithelial cells and reducing the inflammation in intestinal mucosal lamina propria that hosts the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT1), T cells, plasma cells, mast cells, dendritic cells, and macrophages.
