Ultra G.I.™ supplied by Douglas Laboratories is a formula containing beneficial amounts of dietary constituents

such as L-glutamine and N-Acetyl Glucosamine specifically designed for the strength, permeability, and

support of intestinal tract.†

FUNCTIONS

The amino acid glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, structure, and function of the entire

gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and its extensive immune system. Glutamine is perhaps the major energy source for

intestinal cells, and under conditions of physiological stress the GI tract benefits greatly from extra dietary

glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in blood, and is a vehicle for nitrogen transport.

Glutamine-consuming tissues, such as the GI tract, the liver, and the immune system, use glutamine for the

synthesis of nucleotides, proteins, and amino sugars.

Intestinal mucosal cells produce large amounts of mucous that are constantly secreted into the intestinal

lumen. This mucous protects the mucosal cells, and helps propel digested food throughout the GI tract. Just

like glucosamine, N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine (NAG) is a naturally occurring amino sugar. NAG is found in

glycosaminoglycans which are major structural components in intestinal mucous secretions as well as

connective tissues. Supplementation with these amino sugars can help maintain normal glycosaminoglycan

synthesis and intestinal mucous production.

FOS (fructooligosaccharides) can selectively feed the beneficial symbiotic bacteria, such as Lactobacillus

acidophilus, Bifidobacteria, and other acid-producing bacteria. Regular consumption of FOS has been shown

to support healthy levels of these beneficial bacteria in the colon.

The other nutritional ingredients of Ultra G.I., including Vitamin E and gamma oryzanol, can also play a role in

maintaining a healthy digestive system.

INDICATIONS

Ultra GI may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to provide dietary support for a healthy GI

tract.
