Your First-Line Immune Defense

The mucosal barrier—your first-line immune defense—refers to all of the mucous membranes that comprise the primary interface between the external environment and the internal environment of the body. Support Mucosa targets the most critical barrier, that which lines your intestines. This mucosal barrier lets beneficial things into your general circulation and keeps harmful ones out.

To clarify this, an analogy can be made between the earth’s ozone layer and your body’s mucosal barriers. The ozone layer lets the right amount of sunlight through, sustaining life on earth; your mucosal barriers allow nutrients through, sustaining your health. The ozone layer prevents harmful radiation from getting through; the mucosal barriers prevent undesirables from invading your body. But just as our planet has a damaged ozone layer, many of us have damaged mucosal barriers. 

Biomatrix

 

No disease or symptom needs to be present to warrant protecting the mucosal barrier of the intestines; keeping it healthy helps to keep us strong and disease-resistant. 

 

In the image below, we see a healthy mucosal lining (left) and one with collapsed tissues on the right. When the finger-like projections called villi collapse visible on the right—harmful organisms are harbored and given a safe place to thrive, while nutrient absorption becomes compromised. The promotion of healing and protection against such damage is paramount to overall health and disease prevention.

Nourish and Restore

Healing of the mucosal barrier can occur when the causes are removed and targeted nutrition is delivered. Support Mucosa is specifically formulated to accelerate repair of the mucosal barrier of the gut wall, restoring healthy form and function to tissue. It plays several roles in soothing and restoring the intestinal lining.

A principal component in the formula is the amino acid Glutamine. Glutamine’s ability to heal the mucosal barrier cells and tissue is well known in nutritional science. Glutamine is arguably the most important amino acid given its ability to rebuild tissues and strengthen immune function.

Our Proprietary Blend is a synergistic mix of botanicals that assists in tissue repair. Combined with the soothing and restorative ingredients quercetin, MSM, bromelain, gamma oryzanol, and N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, an amino acid sugar essential for tissue repair, the blend acts as a cohesive healing force. It can improve mucosal barrier integrity, contributing to improved nutrient absorption and protection against foreign agents.

Like each of the BioMatrix formulas, Support Mucosa’s formulation is the result of decades of collective clinical experience with virtually every major line of nutrition product available and his appreciation for the subtle interactions between botanicals. And given the array of ingredients, each with diverse contributions to health, its benefits extend far beyond the primary purpose of healing and strengthening the intestinal wall.

Support Mucosa – The Formula

 

3 Capsules Contain:

Biotin - 1000 mcg

Biotin enters the body through the intestinal mucosa. When a mucosal lining is compromised, supplemental biotin helps to maintain therapeutic levels in circulation. Apart from being a vital cofactor to important enzymes, biotin is essential in cell growth through its role in the manufacture of DNA and RNA, the genetic components of cells.

L-Glutamine USP - 425 mg

Glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, structure, and function of the entire gastrointestinal tract, and its extensive immune system. It is the preferred respiratory fuel for cells called enterocytes and colonocytes. Maintaining the biological activity of these cells is fundamental to maintaining the integrity of the intestinal barrier. In addition, glutamine helps maintain secretory IgA, the antibody that prevents the attachment of foreign substances to mucosal cells.

Quercetin - 340 mg

Found in only a few dietary sources, quercetin is an antioxidant flavonoid. Quercetin spares vitamin C and stabilizes cell membranes, including those of the mast cells critical to the mucosal immune function.

N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine - 250 mg

Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, a component of intestinal mucous secretions, is deficient in a compromised GI tract, thus reducing the integrity of the mucosal surfaces. 

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) - 160 mg

Experiments with MSM have demonstrated that it binds to the intestinal mucosa. By doing so, it presents a blocking interface between the internal environment of the body and the influences of the external environment. As a result, substances such as allergens and parasites cannot readily bind to the mucosa, toxins are oxidized, and free radicals are eliminated. 

Bromelain (2400 GDU/g) from pineapple - 85 mg

Bromelain is an enzyme used to accelerate healing. 

Gamma Oryzanol - 85 mg

Gamma oryzanol, a component of rice bran oil, has been shown to have antioxidant effects on the gastrointestinal mucosa. 

First-LineT Proprietary Blend - 500 mg

  • Deglycyrrhized Licorice Root Extract
    • Deglycyrrhized licorice (DGL) increases the quantity and quality of the natural protective substances that line the intestinal tract and increases the blood supply to the intestinal lining.
  • Hawthorne Leaf and Flower Extract
    • More potent than berry extract. Enhances circulation and oxygen utilization throughout the mucosal tissues. 
  • Milk Thistle Seed Extract (Standardized to Contain 80% Silymarin)
    • Milk thistle has been shown to support healthy liver function. The extract helps the liver manage the burden of extra toxins permeating through a compromised mucosal barrier. 
  • Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng) Root Extract(Standardized to Contain 0.8% Eleutherosides)
    • An adaptogen with numerous health benefits.
  • Slippery Elm Bark
    • Slippery elm bark exacts a soothing action throughout the entire digestive system.
  • Turmeric Root Extract (Standardized to Contain 95% Curcumin)
    • Studies indicate that the curcumin in turmeric root has properties that inhibit COX-2 activity. 

Other ingredients:

Natural vegetable capsules, vegetable stearate, and microcrystalline cellulose.
