Gastrointestinal Nutritional Support

GI Sustain is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support, including amino acids and prebiotic fibre, combined with readily digestible, low-allergenic-potential macronutrients for 'leaky gut' syndrome.

Featuring L-glutamine and isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO), this formula supports intestinal mucosal integrity and promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria to address dysbiosis (more bad bacteria than good/beneficial bacteria in the intestines) associated with 'leaky gut' syndrome.

Benefits | Features

  • Designed to help resolve 'leaky gut' syndrome
  • Supports the integrity of the lining of the intestines by proving nutrients for the lining cells including zinc gluconate and L-glutamine
  • Features low-allergy-potential rice protein concentrate supplemented with L-lysine HCl and L-threonine for an improved protein source
  • Supports intestinal microbial balance by providing food for the beneficial bacteria
  • Provides the prebiotic isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO) to selectively nourish beneficial bacteria, including lactobacillus and bifidobacteria
  • IMO is a gentle fibre that is naturally sweet but has a low-glycemic index
  • Provides a readily absorbed and metabolised lipid source
