Professional Supplements & Nutritional Products Since 1998

MedCaps GI™ features L-glutamine, zinc, and pantothenic acid to nutritionally support the gastrointestinal mucosa and the prebiotic inulin to provide nourishment to the gastrointestinal mucosa cells. It also features aloe leaf extract, which has traditionally been used for optimal GI function.*

  • Support the Integrity of the G.I. Mucosa*
  • Support Optimal Function of G.I. Mucosa*

Pantothenic Acid (as calcium d-pantothenate), a component of Coenzyme A, has various essential roles that sustain life. Among these is the maintenance of muscle tone of the gastrointestinal tract. Pantothenic acid supports the synthesis of serotonin and acetylcholine and therefore, may be beneficial in combating stress, often a component of gastrointestinal disorders.*

Zinc (as bis-glycinate chelate) has many important roles in the body, including the quenching of free radicals possibly present in gastrointestinal disorders. Individuals with inflammatory bowel disorders or any diarrhea-related condition are at risk for zinc deficiency. Zinc deficiency may potentiate the effect of toxins produced by E. coli. A deficiency may also impair the absorption of water and electrolytes and perpetuate the diarrhea. Chronic low zinc impairs nitric oxide production, a substance that plays an important part in triggering diarrheal disease.*[1]

Inulin is a prebiotic fermented by intestinal flora to produce short-chain fatty acids, including butyrate. Butyrate acts as “fuel” for colonocytes and enhances the expression of biotransformation genes that induce glutathione S-transferase, protecting colonocytes from carcinogens.*[2]

L-glutamine, a conditionally essential amino acid, is most important for intestinal energy supply; regeneration of the gastrointestinal mucosa is dependent upon its utilization. Supplementation has been shown to decrease inflammatory tissue damage in patients with conditions that generally result in low glutamine levels.[3] L- Glutamine is considered an immunonutrient and is particularly important for the body under stress-related conditions.*

Aloe (Leaf Extract), used for thousands of years, is perhaps most well-known for healing of damaged epithelial tissue, including the bowel lining. Despite the lack of scientific published studies, there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that aloe vera helps inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. In some individuals, it may increase G.I. transit time, improve protein digestion and absorption, increase stool bulk, and normalize stool bacteria where high levels of yeasts previously existed.*[4]
