Digestive health and absorption - AstraGin®

Digestive health and absorption - AstraGin®

Digestive and gut health has taken center stage over the past few years. It can effect everything from nutrient absorption, skin health, mood, immune function and overall well-being.

Eating a diverse diet and increasing fiber intake can help have a positive impact on fueling beneficial gut bacteria. Around 70% of the immune system is present in the digestive system and plays a complex role in immunoregulation.

AstraGin® is a patented, highly purified natural compound comprised of Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus from the ingredient manufacturer NuLiv Science. It was developed to support overall gut health, nutrient absorption, the microbiome, and immune function. 

AstraGin has shown in multiple scientific studies to up-regulate specific mRNA and transport proteins.This increases absorption and bioavailability of particular nutrients such as amino acids, peptides, and fatty acids.

Increased bioavailability means your body will have better utilization of the ingredients consumed with AstraGin. For example boosting the absorption of Leucine and L-Arginine can improve muscle protein synthesis by the stimulation of mTOR.

AstraGin was also shown to support healthy gut lining and barrier integrity. Studies suggest this may be due to AstraGin's ability to up-regulate the mTOR pathway to increase the protein synthesis and cell proliferation.

Because of its positive effects on supporting the gut barrier AstraGin may provide a good environment for the growth of good microbiota. A healthy gut and microbiome can have a positive effect on the immune system.

We include AstraGin in many of our products because of its ability to support the absorption and bioavailability of many nutrients and its ability to promote overall gut health.
