GI Sustain To Fix Leaky Gut
Submitted by Metagenics

GI Sustain™ is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support, including amino acids and prebiotic fiber, combined with readily digestible, low-allergenicpotential macronutrients for patients with compromised gut function and malabsorption. Featuring L-glutamine and isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO), this formula supports intestinal mucosal integrity and promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria to address dysbiosis associated with high intestinal permeability. The many great qualities of GI Sustain include:

    • Supports microbial balance
    • Nourishes the cells of the colonic mucosa Features low-allergy-potential rice protein concentrate supplemented with L-lysine HCl and L-threonine for an improved protein source
    • Formulated with rice syrup solids as a natural energy source
    • Features a readily absorbed and metabolized lipid source
    • Optimized with the prebiotic IMO to selectively nourish beneficial bacteria, including lactobacilli and bifidobacteria
    • IMO is a gentle fiber that is naturally sweet but has a low-glycemic index
    • Formulated with nutrients such as zinc gluconate and L-glutamine to nutritionally support gastrointestinal mucosa integrity

QUESTION: How does GI Sustain™ Medical Food work?

ANSWER: It's enhanced with specific nutrients—including rice protein developed through a patented manufacturing process—and targeted ingredients to nutritionally manage gastrointestinal health, including support for intestinal lining and immune function (through a healthy bacterial balance). Rice protein has a lower allergenic potential than many common animal or vegetable protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for dietary elimination programs. This product is formulated for use with a modified elimination diet (to reduce dietary chemicals and common foods with allergenic potential) to offer a higher level of support for better results.

QUESTION: How long is GI Sustain™ Medical Food typically recommended?

ANSWER: A typical introductory program is 25 days (with a modified elimination diet) to evaluate progress. Some people may report positive changes in just a few weeks, but individual results may vary. This product may also be recommended for long-term support. For best results, follow your healthcare professional's guidelines.

QUESTION: Who would benefit from GI Sustain™ Medical Food?

ANSWER: People with leaky gut syndrome, a condition that can lead to increased permeability of the gastrointestinal (GI) lining. This creates an opportunity for environmental toxins, undigested food, microbes, and waste to "leak" through the body's protective GI immune system.

QUESTION: Why is GI Sustain™ Medical Food safe?

ANSWER: Medical foods must contain ingredients that are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) or FDA-approved, and Metagenics continually evaluates formula ingredients in concert with current nutritional research for optimal safety and effectiveness. Plus, Metagenics' manufacturing facility has three certifications for good manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality. This product is suitable for those who may be sensitive to lactose or soy.
