About GI Microb-X

GI Microb-X is a formula that contains a proprietary blend of natural botanicals that have been used to fight bad bacteria and problematic microbes in the GI (gastrointestinal) tract for centuries. Due to its ingredients, GI Microb-X is particularly effective against a condition that occurs when the balance of the microbes inside or on the body breaks, for some reason (aka dysbiosis). Each compound comes with a long history of use for helping not only restore the gut flora but also maintain healthy levels.

How GI Microb-X Works

The body has millions of bacteria and microbes at any given time. Some of them are extremely beneficial to our overall health while others can cause harm. Ensuring that the good bacteria overpower the bad automatically sets the foundation for good health; emotional, physical and spiritual. But, when their environment is disturbed, by poor diet, overuse of antibiotics, alcohol or even stress and aging, the good intestinal bacteria are compromised, and the balance is disrupted. This allows harmful bacteria to grow exponentially. When that happens, it doesn’t take long before the first symptoms of illness appear.

People with more harmful microbes than good inside their body often exhibit diarrhea, an upset stomach, and other issues related to the digestive tract, which, consequently affect the mood and energy levels, and cause fatigue and a feeling of unwellness. This is when many people turn to over-the-counter remedies to help them feel better. However, these medications only treat the symptoms, not the underlying cause, which is the microbial imbalance. The result? The problems may go away for a little while only to come back more intense. At that moment, GI Microb-X enters the equation and lets its botanicals and herbs restore the damage done.

Importance of Supporting the GI Tract

It is evidenced that 70% of our immune system lives in the intestines. Therefore, our overall health largely depends on how healthy our digestive tract is, which is also where the food particles we consume are broken down into nutrients that the body then absorbs and feeds the cells. All this process is carried out with the help of the billions of bacteria that live in the gut and affect not only how we metabolize food but also how the immune functions and how our body absorbs nutrients.

In fact, the presence of these (beneficial) bacteria prevents the growth of the bad microbes while also working to ferment foods, produce vitamins, and manufacture hormones. Many studies have shown that certain bacteria that assist in the breakdown of carbohydrates also play a vital role in weight management. Other groups help improve the function of the intestinal protective barrier as a means to support the immune system. They form a “shield” that stops bad bacteria from entering the bloodstream.

GI Microb-X Ingredients

The formula’s capsules are vegetarian and include the following compounds:

Tribulus Extract (Puncture Vine) – A herb that is found in many moderate and tropical regions across the world. Its medicinal and health effects are the outcome of X steroidal saponins (active phytochemicals steroidal saponins) that are known to have potent antiviral and antibacterial properties, as well as the ability to influence the immune system as a whole.

Berberine Sulfate – A plant with a distinctive bitter taste that has been long used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to treat bacterial diarrhea. The roots, stem bark, and rhizomes of the plant also exhibit antimicrobial activity against chlamydia, fungi, viruses, bacteria, helminths, and protozoans.

Sweet Wormwood – An ingredient with strong antimicrobial qualities that has been widely used to treat parasitic GI infections and malaria, and kill worms (parasites). It is taken from the wood of tree called Artemesia annua.

Black Walnut Extract – Besides its strong antibacterial activity, it also holds possesses attributes that fight fungal pathogens that are found in cases of GI dysbiosis. In botanical medicine, it is also used as a gut anti-parasitic.

Grapefruit Extract – It is a potent antiseptic that can minimize fungal growth that comes from candida and other common organisms. Grapefruit extract is also effective against hamolytic coliform bacteria.

Bearberry Extract – A compound that has been used since the 13th century as an antiseptic, astringent, and diuretic due to the Arbutin (phenolic glycoside), flavonoids, triterpenes, and tannins it contains. It is also found to help treat GI and urinary tract infections while it may also be used as a laxative, if brewed (the leaves), and a pain reliever in cases of nephritis, cystitis, and kidney stones.

Caprylic Acid (octanoic acid) – It can treat bacterial infections and can easily penetrate the wall membranes of the fatty cells and fight intramucosal Candida, Staphylococcus aureus, and other lipid-coated bacteria without affecting the growth of good gut bacteria.

Other Ingredients: Magnesium Caprylate, Black Walnut Powder, silicon dioxide, vegetable stearate, and cellulose (capsule).
