Ultra LGS – A Synergistic Blend of Nutrients to Support Gut Barrier Function
Inflammation is a natural part of the body’s immune response, a cascade triggered to protect the body and maintain normal tissue repair. This physiological response is part of the innate immune or non-specific immune system, a first line of defense comprising the cells and mechanisms that defend against unwanted organisms in a non-specific manner. The inflammatory cascade is mediated by eicosanoids. Ultra Leaky Gut Support is a comprehensive formula designed to address immune challenges and maintain normal inflammatory balance. It provides a blend of phytonutrients including skullcap, bee propolis, and turmeric for full spectrum support.
- Skullcap Root Extract – an extract of the root of Scutellaria baicalensis, this popular Chinese botanical possesses potent antioxidant properties, and it has been shown to modulate the immune system and support cardiovascular health.1
- Bee Propolis Extract – bees create propolis by collecting a resinous sap from trees and then mixing it with wax within the hive. Propolis contains a diverse variety of potent terpenes and benzoic, caffeic, cinnamic, and phenolic acids. It is also high in flavonoids, which may account for many of its health benefits. Propolis helps maintain normal inflammatory balance, protects against oxidative stress, and helps balance the immune response.4
- Turmeric – the complete turmeric matrix includes compounds from the entire turmeric root, all working together as nature intended to deliver better results. The complete turmeric matrix supports a healthy GI tract, creates a healthy microbiome, and helps maintain normal inflammatory balance. Studies have also shown it supports the health of the GI tract, and promotes both gastrointestinal mucos and bowel health. Curcumin has been shown to provide cardiovascular protection, and to help modulate low mood and fatigue by supporting a normal immune response, normalizing oxidative stress, and preventing intestinal hyperpermeability. It has also been shown to hold promise in supporting respiratory health.

Timothy O’Malley –
I just got this product last week. I ordered it for inflammatory bowel problems. It’s probably too early to tell, but it is the first supplement that I have tried so far that has not made me have diarrhea or nausea. So I give it 5 stars for that alone. I will chime in later with more details.
Debi Jones –
It’s great, I hope to continue to improve my bowel problems.
