Many of our customers suffer from long term gastrointestinal issues resulting from a variety of different reasons from over-use of antibiotics, dietary issues or other health conditions. As a result, their GI tract has become damaged, exasperating their issues and possibly adding new ones. If you’ve suffered from long-term GI issues, adding Probonix Repair to your current probiotic regimen could provide the help you need.
What does it do?
Probonix Repair is a supplement that is designed to promote proper tissue growth and repair in the gastrointestinal tract. Damage in the gastrointestinal tract can occur for a number of reasons, like poor diet, chronic stress, or dysbiosis (an imbalance between good and bad bacteria in the gut), and it can lead to food allergies, low energy, joint pain, and even more severe long-term consequences like Leaky Gut Syndrome or autoimmune diseases.
Probonix Repair was developed by the medical team at Humarian after assessing the criteria necessary to jumpstart tissue growth and properly repair the lining of the gut. The team identified five key principles to that end.
- Principle 1: Repair Unhealthy Intestinal Mucosa
- Principle 2: Restore Healthy Microflora
- Principle 3: Reinforce Digestion and Absorption
- Principle 4: Rebalance Intestinal Immune Defense
- Principle 5: Remove Stress and Toxins
Each of the ingredients in Probonix Repair plays a key role in one or more of these principles. Check out the ingredients list on the product page to see what each ingredient does.
What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Leaky Gut Syndrome, also known as Intestinal Permeability or Leaky Bowel Disease, is a condition in which the gut barrier is broken down and substances that are normally kept out are able to enter the body. Think of your gut barrier working similarly to a screen door. What happens when a screen door is damaged and the holes become bigger? Bugs can squeeze through and into your home. Leaky Gut basically does the same thing to your gut lining. Substances that aren’t supposed to get into the blood stream are suddenly able to get by through gaps where the lining of the gut has been damaged. When these foreign substances enter the body, they can trigger autoimmune responses, leading to bloating, cramps, fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes, and a number of dangerous autoimmune disorders. You can learn more about Leaky Gut Syndrome from our blog series.
I’m currently taking Probonix, should I be taking Repair too?
It depends. Probonix is important for restoring and maintaining a healthy microfloral balance in the gut, while Repair helps to repair damage to the lining of the gut. One thing to keep in mind is that Probonix will have a much greater impact in a gut where the lining is healthy and intact than in a gut with damaged walls, especially if the damage is severe enough to cause leaky gut syndrome. If you have an unhealthy diet, rarely exercise, and experience frequent or chronic stress, there’s a good chance you would benefit from adding Probonix Repair to compliment your Probonix probiotic.
If you have a very healthy lifestyle, Repair can still be beneficial. Your gut may be relatively healthy now, but it is constantly turning over new cells. While a Probonix probiotic will provide the beneficial bacteria needed to alleviate dysbiosis, one of the most common causes of leaky gut syndrome, it does not provide the building blocks that the gut needs in order to maintain and repair itself. Probonix Repair provides those building blocks. This ensures that your body has all of the materials it needs to keep the lining of the gut in great shape.
Can I stop taking my probiotic and only take Repair?
That’s probably not a great idea. Without regular probiotic supplementation, dysbiosis can become a problem. Probonix Repair will help to repair damage lining of the gut, but it will not help to restore a healthy balance of bacteria. If you only take Repair, you’ll start to rebuild your gut lining, but unaddressed dysbiosis could lead to it being damaged again very shortly thereafter. It is important to take a probiotic alongside Probonix Repair to ensure that you are promoting a healthy balance of bacteria in addition to repairing the gastrointestinal tract.
