Thorne Research Gastriplex®

Gastrointestinal Support Supplement

Animal Health - GI Tract Supplement - 180 Capsules

Thorne Research Gastriplex® is a pet supplement that supports upper and lower GI tract in small animals and horses.

Indiscretion in eating (like from a garbage can), poor quality pet foods, antibiotic use, and stress can all contribute to digestive upset in companion animals.

Intolerance to certain foods is commonly seen in veterinary practice. While avoiding the foods an animal is intolerant to can support a healthy GI tract, treating the cause is also essential. Increased gut permeability that allows for the undesirable absorption of larger protein fragments is often at the root of the problem. By improving gut integrity and decreasing gut permeability, the animal's sensitivity to foods can be greatly reduced.

Gastriplex is an innovative, comprehensive intestinal support product that combines amino acids and botanicals for mucosal support and gut integrity with probiotics and ingredients that support the animal's normal inflammatory response.

Complete GI support for small animals and horses.

  • Supports a healthy upper and lower GI tract
  • Provides probiotics to enhance digestion
  • Supports normal gut permeability

Glutamine plays a key role in maintaining mucosal cell integrity and gut barrier function. Glutamine also enhances the gut's immune function, in part by increasing the production of secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA), an antibody that promotes immunity. N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (NAG) also helps maintain normal intestinal permeability. NAG enhances mucus production and is involved in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans, the building blocks of connective tissue.

Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast that decreases intestinal permeability. Like glutamine, this beneficial yeast exerts its protective effect on the GI tract by increasing the production of sIgA. Bacillus coagulans is a safe, effective probiotic that survives in stomach acid and produces L(+) lactic acid in the intestine. Probiotics are successfully used to help maintain a healthy GI tract.

Slippery elm, a demulcent and emollient, provides soothing protection for the mucus membranes of the intestinal tract. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) supports a healthy intestinal lining by helping to increase blood flow and maintain normal muscle relaxation.

Quercetin, an abundant dietary flavonoid, has significant positive action in the intestinal tract. Gastriplex contains Thorne Vet's patented water-soluble quercetin.
