Gastrointestinal (GI) health is the foundation for a healthy body. Since 80% of your immune system resides in the GI tract, having a healthy balance of beneficial flora with the appropriate release of digestive enzymes is imperative. The GI tract (referring to the 30 foot tube from your mouth all the way to the bottom) has been called by some "the second brain."
Antibiotic use, stress, poor diet, and the aging process are just some examples of what can initiate a process of inflammation that breaks down the lining of the intestinal tract leading to a wide range of symptoms. These symptoms include difficulty digesting foods, constipation or irregular bowel movements, bloating or gas, intolerance to certain foods, frequent infection, and mood imbalances.

The healing process requires four basic steps: 1.Remove allergens, toxins, parasites, and non-beneficial bacteria; 2. Restore a healthy bacteria population; 3. Repair the gut lining and mucosal membranes using highly specified nutrients; 4. Replenish digestive enzymes, bile acids, and possibly supplementing with HCl to maintain long term balance
