IntestiMend is an innovative sulfur, gastrointestinal, and detoxification support supplement that utilizes a broad range of sulfur-based accessory nutrients. Its active ingredients are sulfur-containing biotin, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, Methylsufonylmethane (MSM), a very small amount of N-acetyl cysteine as a synergist, along with calcium D-glucarate that helps to detoxify the gut and catalyze the formation of glycosaminoglycans, N-acetyl glucosamine as an anti-microbial and gut anti-inflammatory, and D-ribose, the sugar molecule backbone of the ribonucleic acid of DNA and RNA.
A healthy gastrointestinal tract is lined with a protective barrier of sulfate that appears to provide resistance to a wide range of biological, viral/immunological, dietary, inflammatory and toxicological challenges. Compromises in sulfation chemistry from toxin exposure may diminish this natural resistance that normally provides a protective cell barrier function in the GI tract as well as the other organs and tissues of the body.
IntestiMend is designed to provide precursor, multi-elemental and catalyst support for the cellular protective barrier called Glycosaminoglycans (GAGS), which are predominantly composed of sulfur-bearing amino acids bonded to polysaccharide sugar molecules, which are very often dysfunctional in the damaged intestines of children on The Spectrum. Many parents of children on the Feingold Diet that have had accidental ingestions of restricted foods or additives have reported that IntestiMend completely halts the severe reaction from these foods within 20-30 minutes. While it has not been yet demonstrated, it may function in a similar manner with gluten/casein food ingestions for children on the GFCF diet as well. IntestiMend also works very well as a daily sulfur support supplement for children presenting with low sulfur/sulfate.
