The intestinal lining serves as the barrier between the intestinal lumen (the
outside world) and the inside of the body. We don’t often think of food
particles, chemicals, and bacteria that are traveling through the intestines as
being external to the body, but they are. Normally, the cells of a healthy
functioning intestinal lining absorbs digested
food particles (proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals) into the
cell and subsequently pass these nutrients along to the blood stream, while
the same time, keeping out large, undigested food particles and other unwanted
substances (pathogenic bacteria, yeasts, and chemicals) that can cause disease
Inflammation of the intestinal lining, caused by infection (Candida), trauma
(surgery), the overuse of certain medications like antibiotics and NSAIDS
(aspirin), and food allergies (gluten intolerance) can create a condition known
as Leaky Gut Syndrome. In Leaky Gut Syndrome, nutrients from the foods we digest
are not absorbed properly and those unwanted particles are able to permeate
through the intestinal cells and enter the body. These foreign invaders are
attacked by the body’s immune system, leading to allergic reactions and more
inflammation. It is truly a vicious cycle.
Leaky Gut is associated with a variety of health conditions, including
Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, Celiac Disease and food allergies. While IBS
is not considered an inflammatory disease, minor damage to the intestinal lining
that is not detectable in standard testing and what is called "subclinical
inflammation" do appear to contribute to the symptoms of IBS. By nourishing and
strengthening the intestinal lining, the SEACURE® peptides help promote healthy
works the same on people as well as pets. Most people prefer the
capsules. They are more convenient to take and one doesn't taste the
"fishy" flavor. Most pet guardians prefer the powder because it is
easier to scoop the powder and mix it into wet food.
