How do the ingredients in Gastrex support digestion?

Okra powder, a key ingredient in Gastrex, is a powerhouse of valuable nutrients. Okra is universally recognized as an important food crop due to its mucilage and fiber as well as the presence of essential vitamins.1, 2 Bentonite is a colloidal, hydrated aluminum silicate that helps attract and move gastrointestinal contents through the alimentary tract.3, 4 Working much like a magnet, bentonite’s adsorbent properties encourage waste materials to adhere to its surface and be carried away for elimination. Gastrex also contains vitamin B6 and niacin. The combination of ingredients in Gastrex provides the necessary nutrients to support digestion and help cleanse the gastrointestinal tract. The formula also may help support the protection and repair of stomach tissue.5*

How does Gastrex maintain healthy gastrointestinal function?

The okra contained in Gastrex provides mucilage to help keep the intestinal tract healthy.6 Mucilage coats various tissues, providing lubrication and tissue support.7*

Whole Food Nutrient Solutions

Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.

Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
