Introducing GI Clear™
This is a blend of botanical extracts with a long history of use for supporting a healthy gastrointestinal microbial balance. The botanical substances in GI Clear™ are commonly represented on sensitivity testing provided by the major functional laboratories performing stool analysis.
Your gut is your largest organ and is the key to good health. The human microbiome project has shown that there are ten times more microbial cells in the body than cells in the body. The project found that protein-coding genes in our intestinal terrain are 360 times more abundant than human genes in the body. This means that the genetic makeup of the microbiome has a greater influence on an individual’s health than the intracellular genetics of the individual.
Good health begins with the health of your gut. If your gut is damaged or you have an abundance of pathogenic microorganisms it is impossible to be healthy. The gut must be addressed daily in order for one to live a lifestyle that builds health. Imbalances in the intestinal terrain may lead to or contribute to the propagation of yeast overgrowth, parasites, and harmful bacterial growth.
The Internal Intestinal EcoSystem:
Intestinal pathogens are abnormal and unwanted inhabitants of the gastrointestinal system that have the potential to cause damage to their host. They consume nutrients from the foods we are eating and they puncture holes in the intestinal membrane. Humans can play host to several hundred different types of parasites, pathogenic bacteria and yeast (1).
This internal ecosystem is dependent upon certain beneficial species being widespread and in control. These symbiotic microbes are progenic in that they support life. These organisms provide a protective barrier that guards the intestinal wall against pathogenic bacteria, parasites, fungi, viruses and environmental toxins.
The Power of Anti-Microbial Herbs:
Various different forms of herbs have anti-microbial factors that reduce pathogenic bacteria, yeast and parasites. These herbs can be used to reduce the microbial load and be an important part of reestablishing a healthy microbial balance. These herbs are most effective:
Berberine Sulfate: The chemical berberine has strong anti-microbial effects against bacteria, parasites and yeast.
For example, it can prevent the bacteria E. coli from binding to urinary tract walls. Berberine also has properties that can lower blood pressure and improve irregular heartbeats (2).
Black Walnut Extract: Numerous studies have found juglone, a cytotoxic compound found in walnuts, and most predominately in black walnuts, to have powerful anti-microbial, anti-parasitic properties. This is a key parasite killing agent and it also acts as a mild laxative that helps expel the waste products of dead bacteria and parasites (3).
Bearberry Extract: This is another powerful anti-microbial that is effective at regulating healthy gut microflora and preventing urinary tract infections.
The active compound in this is arbutin which is primarily responsible for the antimicrobial activity. Bearberry also contains therapeutic compounds such as ursolic acid and quercetin (4).
Sweet Wormwood: Also known as Artemisia annua, sweet wormwood is one of the bitterest herbs on the planet and this bitterness works to drive out worms and parasites.
This is also a potent anti-malarial agent and can kill the deadliest malarial parasite, Plasmodium falciparum (5). It works to break down iron bridges in the pathogenic organism, causing massive oxidative stress and death of the parasite.
Tribulus Extract: Tribulus is a flowering plant that is renowned in southern Europe and the middle East. This herb was shown to have strong anti-microbial effects against 11 pathogenic microbes including Staphylococcus aureus, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Serratia marcescens, Salmonella typhimurium, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans (6).
Magnesium Caprylate: Caprylic acid is also called octanoic acid which is a naturally occurring medium chain fatty acid that provides support for healthy yeast and Candida balance (7). Due to its fat solubility, it is believed to penetrate within the intestinal mucosal cells. The magnesium salt helps to slow the dispersion of caprylic acid to support its ability to get deeper into the gastrointestinal tract.
Barberry Extract: Barberry (Berberis vulgaris) is one of the plants that contain berberine and has had a long history in eastern and western medical tradition. Studies showed that barberry have numerous health benefits, including anti-inflammatory ones. Moreover, it can be used as a medicinal herb to treat a variety of disorders, such as diabetes, liver disease, gallbladder pain, digestive, urinary tract diseases, and gallstones (8).
