  • These Gastriplex Vegetarian Capsules by Thorne Research offer support for a healthy GI tract. In studies‚ these capsules have been shown to provide gastrointestinal and digestive support for small animals. You may use these supplements to help ease gastrointestinal discomfort for dogs‚ cats or horses.

    Gastriplex works by decreasing gut permeability to minimize the absorption of allergenic proteins. It also helps by providing healthy probiotics that help the body support digestion.

    Unhealthy eating habits (like a dog getting into a garbage can)‚ low quality pet foods and unnecessary stress can all contribute to gastrointestinal disturbances in our companion animals.

    Food intolerances are often thought to be a human issue exclusively‚ but they are often seen in our companion animals‚ as evidenced by visits to the veterinarian’s office. Although it is important to learn which foods are causing disturbances to the animal’s GI tract‚ it is also essential to treat the cause. Usually‚ veterinarians find that the root of the problem is increased gut permeability‚ which allows for absorption of larger protein fragments. By improving the integrity of the gut’s lining and decreasing its permeability‚ the sensitivity to these foods can be greatly reduced.

    Gastriplex by Thorne Research offers complete intestinal support‚ which combines nutrients that are optimal for promoting mucosal support and gut integrity along with probiotics and other nutrients that serve the purpose of supporting the body’s natural inflammatory response.

    How Gastriplex Works

    Glutamine is crucial for maintaining the integrity of mucosal cells and the function of the gut barrier. It also works to boost the immune function of the gut by increasing its production of sIgA (secretory immunoglobulin)‚ an immunity-promoting antibody.

    NAG (N-acetyl D-glucosamine) works to maintain the body’s normal range of intestinal permeability. It works by enhancing mucus production and getting involved in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans‚ which are known as the “building blocks” of connective tissue.

    Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast of the probiotic kind that helps to decrease the permeability of the intestinal wall. Much like glutamine‚ this good yeast has a protective effect on the gastrointestinal tract by upping the production of secretory immunoglobulin.

    Lactobacillus sporogenes is another probiotic that has been shown to be safe and effective. It survives in the stomach acid and produces lactic acid within the intestine. Just as they are effective with humans‚ studies have shown that probiotics are effective at supporting the overall health of the gastrointestinal tract of our companion animals.

    Slippery elm is a demulcent and emollient that protects the mucous membranes within the intestinal tract.

    Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) works by supporting a healthy intestinal lining. It also helps by increasing blood flow and working to maintain a normal level of muscle relaxation.

    This product is not intended for use by humans. It was specifically made by Thorne Research for to help ease gastrointestinal discomfort in companion animals.

    Quercetin‚ an abundant dietary flavonoid‚ has significant positive action in the intestinal tract. Gastriplex contains Thorne Research's patented quercetin chalcone‚ which‚ because it's water-soluble‚ makes it a highly bioavailable form of quercetin.

    Have worked for years in animal rescue

    Gastriplex by Thorne Research is phenomenal - and the price at PureFormulas.com is too. I've used it on so many rescued pets - and those I petsit as well. Any pet prone to IBD symptoms will be greatly helped by Gastriplex.


    Pros

      Everything.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Indispensable at our house

    My 10 year old Bichon Frise has inflammatory bowel disease and taking Gastriplex by Thorne Research regularly means that he does not have to take antibiotics all the time. Stool quality is consistently normal as long as we don't commit some dietary indiscretion and then even that is cleared up in a day or two. It has truly been a miracle cure for Leo.


    Pros

      It works!

    Cons

      Absolutely nothing.

    This really works on my senior greyhound

    My greyhound has always been prone to loose stools and diarrhea to the point that he couldn't always make it outside in time. Gastriplex by Thorne Research really helps my sweetie to have normal bowel movements and bowel control. We prefer to open the capsules and sprinkle on his food rather than put the capsules in whole. The taste is pleasant to him. It works fast and better than pumpkin does. I wouldn't be without Gastriplex! And PureFormulas has the best price I have seen.

    Wonderful product!

    My German Shepherd had bouts of mucous with loose stools almost every 2 months this past year. We were in the ER room 3 times because of it then finally I started to see the early symptoms but stilled ended up at the Vets. Shes on her 2nd bottle and so far so good. I will continue to give Gastriplex by Thorne Research to her for the rest of her life and will start my other German Shepherds on it after our next vet visit. I think it is a beneficial product to keep their colon and intestinal track healthy along with the appropriate dog food choice.


    Pros

      Ingredients are beneficial to keep intestinal track and colon healthy. Seems to benefit IBS/IBD and bacterial overgrowth issues.

    Cons

      None.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Miracle Product!

    My 15 year old diabetic cat with renal failure was diagnosed with IBD. With his complex medical problems I was left with very few treatment options. Gastriplex by Thorne Research has truly been a miracle and there is nothing else out there like Gastriplex. Used regularly your animal will definitely show a marked improvement. I also have a Brittany who has a very sensitive stomach from multiple food allergies. I have used Gastriplex to settle his gut down (while we were trying to figure out the food allergies) and within a few dosages hes back to normal. Gastriplex is a great product and I am forever indebted to Thorne Research for formulating it.


    Pros

      EVERYTHING!

    Cons

      Wish they could make smaller capsule for cats.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Really good product!

    My standard poodle had very bloody diarrhea for several months and was loosing weight. we tried everything. I finally found a website that told of how great Gastriplex by Thorne Research was so I decided to try it. I began purchasing it about a year ago and after about 3 months it really made a difference. I still have to cook her food but with Gastriplex her diahrrea is gone and I know she is getting a good product. We also use Canine Basic to assure she is getting complete nutrition.


    Pros

      My dog eats it freely when I sprinkle it over her food.

    Cons

      I wish it came in bulk since I have to give her 4 capsules a day it would be nice to be able to scoop it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
