2 DOCS GI Defense is a synergistic formula containing organic marshmallow root powder, wildcrafted slippery elm bark powder, chicory root powder, glutamine, k-Rutin (a highly bioavailable water-soluble form of Rutin), and Probiocap® microencapsulated probiotics, including L. Rhamnosus, L. Acidophilus, & B. Longum. Desiccated fish and liver has been added to increase nutritional value and greatly enhances palatability. It comes as 100 grams of powder and contains no additional ingredients.

  • Marshmallow has amazing demulcent and emollient properties making it useful in inflammation and irritation of the alimentary canal, and of the urinary and respiratory organs. Marshmallow has been used internally for gastroenteritis, peptic and duodenal ulceration, common and ulcerative colitis, and enteritis.
  • Slippery Elm Bark is a soothing, astringent demulcent, useful for ulcers, gastritis, colitis, diarrhea, and other intestinal problems. It is also an easily digested food for convalescence.
  • Chicory Root Powder is an excellent source of inulin/Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), that are well known to act as prebiotics – enhancing the intestinal growth of probiotics.
  • L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and functions as a major fuel source. Glutamine is important for the health of the intestinal wall, protecting against bacterial translocation and promoting healing.
  • Probiocap® Probiotics include L. Rhamnosus, L. Acidophilus, and B. Longum. These microencapsulated probiotic organisms create a favorable environment for a desirable microbial balance, inhibit pathogenic bacteria, contribute to intestinal peristalsis, and coat and protect the intestinal mucosa.
  • k-Rutin is a major nutrient used to control inflammatory conditions. The k-Rutin form of Rutin is highly water-soluble and extremely well assimilated by the body.
  • Desiccated Fish and Liver greatly enhances palatability and ensures that pets will take GI Defense.

In our experience, this formula is the best solution for treating distress throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract, including diarrhea, ulcers, and inflammation.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: GI DEFENSE is a synergistic formula containing organic marshallow root powder, wildcrafted slippery elm bark powder, inulin/FOS from chicory root, glutamine, k-Rutin™ (a highly bioavailable water-soluble form of rutin), and Probiocap® microencapsulated probiotics including l-rhamnosus, l-acidophilus, & b. longum. Desiccated fish and liver has been added to increase the nutritional value and to greatly enhance palatability. The product comes in powder form (100 g per container) and contains no additional ingredients.

NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS: The great demulcent and emollient properties of Marsh Mallow make it useful in inflammation and irritation of the alimentary canal, and of the urinary and respiratory organs. Decoctions of the plant, especially of the root, are very useful where the natural mucus has been abraded from the coats of the intestines. Marsh Mallow has been used internally for gastroenteritis, peptic and duodenal ulceration, common and ulcerative colitis, and enteritis. Slippery Elm Bark is a soothing, astringent demulcent, useful for ulcers, gastritis, colitis, diarrhea and other intestinal problems. It is also an easily digested food for convalescence. Chicory root powder is an excellent source of inulin/Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), that are well known to act as prebiotics – enhancing the intestinal growth of probiotics. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, where it functions as a major fuel source. Glutamine also is important for the health of the intestinal wall, protecting against bacterial translocation and promoting healing. Glutamine is stored in muscle tissue in order to meet the needs of other body tissues and inhibits muscle atrophy induced by stress hormones. The microencapsulation technology Probiocap™ is a patented technology that protects the viability of the specific probiotics contained in GI Defense under stressful conditions such as moisture, heat, compression and high acidity. Probiocap™ offers significantly enhanced shelf life, i.e., no degradation of viable organisms even after 10 months of storage at room temperature. Furthermore, this technology provides a product that is up to 10,000 times more resistant to stomach acid than unprotected organisms. GI Defense contains Probiocap™ L. rhamnosus, L. acidophilus, and bifidobacteria longum. These organisms accomplish several important functions, including: 1) Creation of a favorable environment for a desirable microbial balance, 2) Limitation of the action of putrefactive microbes, thus controlling production of toxins and their noxious effects upon vital organs and body cells, 3) Inhibition of pathogenic bacteria and prevention of diseases caused by intestinal infections, 4) Contribution to intestinal peristalsis and elimination of harmful amines derived from amino-acids, 5) Coating of the intestinal mucosa and protection against invasion and activities of harmful microorganisms, 6) Increase of immunity by use of lactic acid bacteria is reported by several researchers, who have studied antitumoral activity and activation of immunity. k-Rutin™ is one of the major nutrients used to control inflammatory conditions. The usual forms of rutin (and quercetin which is closely related to rutin) are not well absorbed in the intestinal tract so large amounts are needed. The form of rutin used in this product is highly water soluble and extremely well assimilated by the body. Desiccated tuna and liver are foods that taste good to most animals and it ensures that pets will take the product.
