Stimulate Digestion: For years, gamma oryzanol has been associated with maintaining healthy gastric secretion, even under everyday stress conditions. It is likely that gamma oryzanol does this by influencing the autonomic nervous system. Artichoke helps to stimulate the digestive process and has been shown to relieve occurrences of occasional heartburn while turmeric may offer relief of occasional gas and indigestion. Plant enzymes further promote digestive function for overall comfort and relief of occasional gas, bloating and heartburn.
Soothe and Promote GI Integrity: DGL, marshmallow and slippery elm provide traditional support for soothing the gastrointestinal tract and promoting the integrity of the mucosal lining. These ingredients support the body's natural defense mechanisms by stimulating the mass, quality and production of mucous, a major component of the stomach's protective lining.
