The gut is a structure with the fastest cell
turnover of any organ in the body. The cells
of the gut wall need constant fuel and the
two most important fuels are glutamine, an
amino acid derived from the digestion of
protein to support the small intestinal cells
and butyrate, a short chain fatty acids derived
from the fermentation of soluble fiber, to
support the cells of the large intestine.
Inulin, glucosamine, omega 3 essential fatty
acids and zinc, vitamins A, E and C are also
Only once the gut lining has been repaired
can it function optimally. Closing the
junctions between the cells reduces intestinal
permeability, reducing inflammation caused
by poor foods especially gluten can assist
and supporting the growth of the villi (finger
like projections in the small intestine) will
maximize nutrient absorption.
