5 Ingredients to Support a Healthy Gut

5 Ingredients to Support a Healthy Gut

There are hundreds of dietary supplements on the market claiming to help the human gut and digestive system, making it difficult to determine which supplements are truly best for your health. 

We keep it simple with Dr. Kara’s Vital Restore supplement with five ingredients that offer key benefits to the body: 

  • Glutamine
  • Berberine
  • Turmeric
  • Slippery Elm
  • Zinc 

They work together to restore gut health by preventing leaky gut and support a healthy microbiome.

Glutamine, an important amino acid for the intestinal lining of the cells, promotes healthy bacteria that are a crucial element of a healthy microbiome. Additionally, glutamine supports the gut, liver, and brain - truly allowing for full-body rehabilitation. 

Berberine is an anti-inflammatory property found in the roots, rhizomes, stems, and bark of barberries, a shrub native to Asia, Africa, and Europe that grows small, red berries. Berberine is a powerful anti-inflammatory that works against yeast, parasites, and other bacteria found in the microbiome. Additionally, it supports the gut wall by allowing liquids and gasses to safely pass through. 

Tumeric, common in many of KaraMD’s supplements, is an important component of the Vital Restore formula. It supports the microbiome by acting as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent and by promoting autophagy, the body’s natural process of removing unnecessary and dysfunctional cells to make room for new and healthier cellular activity. 

Slippery elm is an important part of the Vital Restore equation as well, as it encourages food movement throughout the gut. This plant, which is found throughout the eastern region of North America, supports a healthy gut mucous lining by preventing unwanted proteins from sticking to the gut wall and blocking the passage of nutrients.

Finally, the last of the five noteworthy ingredients found in Vital Restore is zinc, an important nutrient for the cells found throughout the intestinal lining. This element supports the overall well-being of the body’s immune system.

Together, these ingredients promote and support the body’s own mechanisms for health and repair. They work to support a healthy microbiome and naturally prevent “leaky gut” caused by poor diets, an increase in unhealthy bacteria, yeast and parasites, disruption of the mucous lining the gut wall and dysbiosis, or an unbalanced or unhealthy microbiome.
