  • GI-Encap by Thorne Research provides soothing botanical support for the GI tract in an easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsule. Each capsule helps maintain the health of your stomach and esophagus. You can take even take the contents of GI-Encap out of its vegetarian capsule to make a soothing tea. Its herbs work to enhance the protective mucous layer of the stomach. As you’ve come to expect from Thorne Research products‚ GI-Encap is made without any flowing agents that have been shown to inhibit bioavailability.

    Active Ingredients in Thorne Research’s GI-Encaps

    Deglycyrrhizinated licorice —Licorice root has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine to optimize the production of mucus by the mucosal cells of the gastrointestinal tract. It is also used to promote gastrointestinal health. The licorice in GI-Encap has been deglycyrrihizinated (the glycrrhizin has been removed) for additional benefits.

    Ulmus fulva (Slippery elm bark) —Slippery elm is an herbal remedy that may work to lessen inflamed‚ irritated or itchy skin as well as scrapes‚ cuts‚ scratches or minor burns. The mucilage (thick gooey layer) of slippery elm bark may also decrease irritation and inflammation in the throat and urinary tract. This bark can work to neutralize excess stomach acid‚ because the mucilages may activate a reflex within the stomach that causes it to secrete more mucus‚ thus neutralizing stomach acid.

    Althea officinalis (marshmallow root)  – Marshmallow root may help lessen inflammation in the GI tract. That may be why marshmallow root may help relieve uncomfortable indigestion‚ diarrhea‚ and other digestive tract issues.

    Aloe vera —May have soothing effects.

    How to Take Thorne’s GI-Encap Supplement

    GI-Encap can be taken whenever you feel irritation coming on in your esophagus. You may take the capsule as you would take any other capsulated supplement‚ or you make gently break it open and mix it with warm water to create a soothing tea. Each bottle contains 60 vegetarian capsules.

    GI ENCAPS

    I was originally prescribed GI Encaps by my Doctor while undergoing treatment for Lyme disease. It is the most consistent stomach relief aid I have ever taken. I have suggested it to a number of people who suffer from cranky stomach issues who have also had good results.

    Pros

      It always works.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    GI-Encap is a very effective remedy for heartburn and gentle on the digestive system. I suffered greatly using prescription and over the counter products recommended by various doctors until a functional medicine doctor recommended GI-Encap. Finally I live pain free. I hope you will experience similar results.

    GI-Encap 60 Vegetarian Capsules by Thorn

    I have had a long standing problem with gastrointestinal problems. After considerable research I discovered GI-Encaps by Thorne Research. This product has 3 ingredients all of which are soothing and have a history of being beneficial to the GI tract. The licorice component is DGL which does not have an adverse effect on blood pressure. The slippery elm bark and marshmallow root are mucilaginous and severe to coat the GI tract. DGL (diglycerized licorice) licorice slippery elm bark and marshallow root are an excellent solution for ulcers and heartburn. This product is a natural alternative to antacids and supports the mucosa. In searching for a product the integrity of the manufacturer is of paramount importance. Thorne Research is an excellent company with a long tract record and Pure Formulas represents top notch companies.

    Pros

      It is very effective with no adverse side effects.

    Cons

      nothing to dislike

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Love GI Encaps

    My chiropracter recommended these for several of our family members with stomach issues. We take them at night (2 of them) and then in the morning. These have a calming effect if you suffer from IBS or ther stomach issues.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
