GI Microb-X™ is a proprietary blend of botanicals that can help support a healthy microbial balance in the

gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Each ingredient in this product has a long history of use for supporting healthy gut flora.

These botanicals include: Tribulus Extract, a flowering plant also known as the Puncture Vine, which is native to

warm temperate and tropical regions; Berberine Sulfate, found in roots, rhizomes and the stem bark of plants such

as barberry, goldenseal, goldenthread and tree turmeric; Sweet Wormwood, derived from the inner bark of the

Artemesia annua; Black Walnut Extract; Grapefruit Extract; Bearberry Extract; and Caprylic Acid.

Aging, exposure to antibiotics, poor diet, and stress can all compromise the good gastrointestinal bacteria and

disrupt the microbial balance. Combined, the ingredients in GI Microb-X™ provide a broad spectrum of activity in

order to support a healthy balance of the normal flora.

Why is it important to support the GI tract?

A healthy digestive system is critical to our overall health. Seventy percent of the body’s immune system resides in

the digestive tract and it is here where food is broken down into absorbable nutrients.

Billions of bacteria live and work in the intestines, affecting our metabolism, nutrient absorption and immune

function. They ferment foods, prevent the growth of harmful bacteria, and work to manufacture hormones and

produce vitamins such as K, B12, and other B vitamins. The presence of specific bacteria can even have an effect on

weight management, as gut microbes aid in the breakdown of carbohydrates and in the absorption of dietary fats.

Bacteria also work to enhance the protective barrier function of the intestines, in order to support the immune

system. They serve as a line of resistance against invasive bacteria and can even trigger the production of what are

called ‘T cells,’ which are important immune system boosters. Therefore, it is vital to our health to help foster the

healthy bacteria that live in the gut.
