REPAIRVITE - Enzyme-Based Herbal and Amino
Acid Nutrients for Intestinal Integrity
173 gms Powder = 30 servings
When the mucous lining of
the small intestine becomes too porous (intra and extracellular), it allows entry of toxins, microorganisms, and
undigested food particles into the bloodstream and promotes an inflammatory immune response. Intestinal barrier
compromise has been associated with multiple food sensitivities, increased inflammation, autoimmune reactions,
chronic fatigue, etc.
RepairVite™ is formulated to provide key nutrients to help support intestinal barrier integrity. It contains targeted
nutrients, flavonoids, antioxidants, plant sterols, glycoproteins, and saponins needed to help restore and maintain
intestinal lining integrity.
- Supports the regeneration and restoration
of the intestinal lining
- Provides glycoproteins to cover mucosa called
mucin to support the mucosa membrane when irritated
- Provides flavonoids, saponins, carotenoids,
phytochemicals and antioxidants to support tissue during intestinal inflammation
- Provides natural compounds that aid in reducing
- Provides extracts with high mucilage content
to soothe and support intestinal health
- Provides plant sterols and ferulic acid
esters to help modulate the enteric nervous system with intestinal motility and the secretion of digestive enzymes
DIRECTIONS: Mix 1 scoop with up to 6-8 ounces of water. Mix well before
drinking. Use 2-3 times a day. If you use the recommended minimum of 2 scoops a day, this will last you 15 days.

L-GLUTAMINE is the preferred
fuel source for the cells of the small intestine and has been shown to support the regeneration and repair of the intestinal lining. It has also been shown to increase the number of cells
in the small intestine, the number of villi on those cells, as well as the height of the villi. Glutamine-reduced
permeability of the lining may accompany “leaky gut” patterns that promote intestinal inflammation and the development
of delayed food intolerances. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22
DEGLYCYRRHIZINATED LICORICE is a popular
and substantially studied natural compound that provides flavonoids that help heal the gastric and intestinal lining.
Many different mechanisms have been shown with regard to its restorative properties, including stimulation and
differentiation of glandular cells, protective mucous formation, protective mucous secretion, increased intestinal
blood flow, and growth and regeneration of intestinal lining cells.23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33,
34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42
ALOE LEAF EXTRACT contains natural phytochemicals and powerful antioxidant properties that reduce intestinal inflammation,
soothe the intestines, aid in intestinal wound healing, and have an anti-ulcer effect. It also appears to have
anti-fungal properties, supports cholinergic intestinal motility, and reduces intestinal pain and discomfort. 43,
44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52
SPANISH MOSS is also known as Tillandsia, and it has historically been used for intestinal irritation and allergies.
Research on the plant has identified rich sources of flavonoids and other phytochemicals that provide anti-microbial
activity and free radical scavenging properties. 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58
MARSHMALLOW EXTRACT has a high content of mucilage that can soothe and help heal compromised intestinal barrier
tissue. It is also rich in antioxidants that can support healing of tissue. It also has properties that inhibit
hyaluronidase, which is the enzyme involved in the production of hyaluronic acid involved with intestinal tissue
destruction. 59, 60, 61
