GI Encap supports the health of the esophagus and stomach. Its mucilaginous botanical ingredients soothe the mucous membranes of the GI tract. To soothe esophageal irritation, GI-Encap can be taken out of the capsule and mixed with warm water to drink as a tea.
Although aloe vera has significant gastroprotective efficacy, some forms of aloe vera can produce a laxative effect. GI-Encap’s aloe vera ingredient comes from the inner fillet of the aloe vera plant, which avoids this effect. Similarly, licorice root preparations, which support the stomach and duodenum, can cause blood pressure to rise in some individuals when given in higher amounts. Therefore, the licorice in GI-Encap has had its glycyrrhizin removed, which prevents increases in blood pressure. GI-Encap also contains slippery elm bark (Ulmus rubra) and marshmallow root (Althea officinalis), both of which contain mucilaginous components that can soothe the digestive tract.
