How does Okra Pepsin E3 help maintain healthy gastrointestinal function?

The okra contained in Okra Pepsin E3 provides high levels of insoluble fiber and mucilage.1, 2, 3 This fiber and mucilage help keep the intestinal tract healthy.4 Ingredients in Okra Pepsin E3 help the intestinal tract stay healthy during periods of irregular stools.5 Hydrophilic colloids from mucilage relieve constipation by providing motility of feces.6 Pepsin is a natural enzyme that aids digestion by degrading protein in the stomach.7*

How does this product support tissue health?

Okra stimulates the activity of dendritic cells in the immune system, providing immuno-potentiating effects. Allantoin has been demonstrated to be clinically beneficial for supporting healthy epithelial tissues and stimulating immune system function.8 Mucilage from okra coats various tissues, providing lubrication as well as cooling, an activity that relieves gastrointestinal discomfort.9*

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.*
