When our bodies run smoothly, we tend to feel great and not think of any potential issues. Once things are not working as systematically, we often internalize our stresses and feel it in our “gut”.
Our “gut” is filled with a series of organs — mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon, all of which work to transform the food we eat into the nutrients our bodies need in which to thrive and survive. When things are wrong, we often feel symptoms including an upset stomach, constipation, heartburn or gas. These are commonly referred to as “gut reactions” and they can be painful, disruptive, and even, embarrassing.
Common gut issues are not segregated to any certain age, in fact, GI doctors today are reporting that they are frequently seeing teenagers and our youth as young as toddlers.
If you have ever suffered from gut issues or know of anyone who has, you can empathize with the frustration and the continued search for relief.
80 percent of our immune system resides in our gut. The state of our gut, therefore, helps determine how we feel both mentally and physically. The relationship between good and bad gut bacteria is the secret to a healthier you. When your gut bacteria is properly balanced, it is happy and supporting a strong immune system and body.
Known as a “stable gastric pentadecapeptide”, primarily because it is stable in human gastric juice, BPC-157 or Body Protection Compound, can cause an anabolic healing effect in both the upper and lower GI tract, it has an anti-ulcer effect, and produces a therapeutic effect on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), with no side effects.
As demonstrated in many research studies, BPC-157 also accelerates wound healing, and, via interaction with the Nitric Oxide (NO) system, causes protection of endothelial tissue and an “angiogenic” (blood vessel building) wound healing effect. This occurs even in severely impaired conditions, such as in advanced and poorly controlled irritable bowel disease, in which it stimulates expression of genes responsible for cytokine and growth factor generation and also extracellular matrix (collagen) formation, along with intestinal anastomosis healing, reversal of short bowel syndrome and fistula healing – all of which can extremely frustrating issues in people who have gut pain, constipation, diarrhea and bowel inflammation.
