Description

Gastrointestinal Health Pylori-Plex provides unique ingredients to support gastrointestinal health. Mastic gum, licorice, marshmallow rootand slippery elm bark all have traditional uses as gastro- protective herbs. The development of some peptic ulcers is now recognized to be due to the presence of Helicobacter pylori bacteria. Although most bacteria are killed when exposed to the highly acidic nature of the stomach, H. pylori can survive in the thick mucus that coats the gastrointestinal tract. Mastic gum, a resin obtained from the tree, Pistacia lentiscus, is used traditionally in the Mediterranean as a traditional healing plant for the gastrointestinal system. Several animal and human studies indicate that it may have the ability to kill the H. Pylori bacteria. This in turn can play an important role in supporting the body's exposure to H. pylori and maintaining the body's natural defenses against ulcer formation. Licorice has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years to support the gastrointestinal system. It was often used as a demulcent, to soothe and coat the stomach and throat. Marshmallow and slippery elm bark also have traditional uses as gastrointestinal-supportive herbs.
