Unless you’re at the leading edge of progressive health, you may not equate “mucus” to your body’s strength and protection.
However, mucus – specifically the mucus in your gut – plays a critically important role in your health and survival.
In fact, your intestinal mucosal barrier may be the single most important and protective component of your entire immune system!
When it’s functioning properly, it keeps you safe from pathogens, allergens, and toxins.
But given the countless daily threats your body deals with, your mucosal barrier needs all the support you can give it… So it can do its most important job of keeping you alive and well.
How Mucus Protects Your Health
Your intestinal cell wall behaves like a bouncer between your gut and your bloodstream. VIP guests like essential water, nutrients, electrolytes, and antioxidants are allowed access... While unwanted microbes and molecules are promptly turned away.
Because your intestinal bouncer is on guard 24/7, it requires constant help maintaining its strength and effectiveness. That help is provided in the form of a protective layer of mucus (ie: your mucosal barrier.)
And it’s your mucosal barrier that is the true, unsung hero of your immune system.
When the mucus has a strong and thick consistency, your team of gut bouncers is emboldened to keep internal baddies out of your bloodstream.
But when the integrity of your mucosal barrier gets compromised, antigens and toxins are able to muscle past your bouncers... and make their way into your bloodstream. This can lead to a whole host of health problems.
How Gut 4-tify Supports Digestive and Immune Health
It’s critical for your overall health and immune function to keep your mucosal barrier thick and healthy. With Gut 4-tify, you get targeted mucosal support in three important ways:
- Gut 4-tify Drives Mucosal Barrier Strength With 4 Key Amino Acids.
To quickly build muscle for a movie, Hollywood actors often hire a team of personal trainers. To rapidly get your mucosal barrier in shape, one of your body’s best allies is amino acid power – Specifically:
These 4 amino acids work as mucosa strength and conditioning coaches, encouraging the production of proteins that results in a thicker, more robust mucosal barrier.
- Gut 4-tify Neutralizes Free Radicals Before They Can Cause Damage to the Mucosal Barrier
Free radicals aren’t just pesky molecules. They are single-minded in their determination to damage the growth, development and survival of all cells in the body.
Fortunately, nature has given us the ultimate free radical fighters: antioxidants. When our bodies are adequately supplied with antioxidants, we can catch free radicals in the act and properly eliminate.
Gut 4-tify contains a powerful antioxidant blend that can defend the body against free radical damage, suppress unwanted microbes, and promote healthy bacterial diversity.
- Gut 4-tify Delivers Special Polyphenols to Support Digestive Health
MicrobiomeX® is a natural citrus extract rich in polyphenols (plant-based micronutrients). When it comes to your mucosal barrier, polyphenols have been shown to preserve and protect by regulating a healthy inflammatory response.*
The specific MicrobiomeX® polyphenols also act as prebiotics. These unique fibers selectively nourish ONLY your beneficial probiotic bacteria and help suppress unwanted microbes.*
In this way, Gut 4-tify also supports a well-balanced gut microbiome, which is an important ally in maintaining mucosal barrier strength and overall health.
Who Is This Product For?
Your optimal health and resilience is always a top priority… Especially these days!
Gut 4-tify’s ability to:
- Foster your immune effectiveness*
- Calm your digestive tract*
- And encourage healthy mucosal barrier function*...
...makes it a key component in just about any health routine.
Unfortunately, our modern world is full of aggressive health enemies that can weaken and thin out your intestinal mucosa. Gut 4-tify is therefore important for anyone currently on or have just completed:
- Nsaid (Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug) such as aspirin or ibuprofen. 
Additionally, Gut 4-tify can be especially supportive of your system:
- During times of high stress or uncertainty 
- After an evening of alcohol indulgence 
- If you experience intestinal challenges
