REPAIR –The Ingredients and the Science

Repair is a delicious powdered, gut-healing supplement, designed to rebuild the gut lining, reduce signs of aging and boost immune function. Each ingredient is clinically proven to support gut, skin and immune health, using only potent quality ingredients that are FODMAP friendly.

Collagen

REPAIR contains a trademarked supplemental collagen peptide, The collagen is a collection of small collagen peptides that have been treated (hydrolysed) for optimal absorption in the gut. This means the whole peptide is absorbed through the gut and is ready to be used by the body. These collagen peptides repair skin and strengthen hair, nails and connective tissue. The collagen used in REPAIR is one of the lightest molecular weight available on the market, making it the most absorbable collagen on the market

The collagen used in REPAIR has been shown to reduce wrinkles and dark spots as well as improve skin elasticity and reduce cellulite in 8 weeks.

Our collagen reduces wrinkles and signs of skin aging by increasing the rate of collagen production in the dermis. This counteracts natural aging and environmental factors that increase collagen breakdown. These factors include; ultraviolet radiation, nutrient deficiencies, stress and dehydration. 

Collagen contains the amino acids glycine and glutamine which are essential in repairing and strengthening the gut lining 

Ingredient focus: Glutamine

We have added additional glutamine because glutamine is a key structural component of the gut lining and increases the expression of tight junctions in the intestinal lining, making is highly helpful in reducing intestinal permeability (leaky gut) and the reduced immune function and food sensitivities that it causes.

Glutamine can help reduce leaky gut and the reduced immune function and food sensitivities that it causes.

Glutamine can also reduce sugar cravings,

  1. Glutamine directly decreases ghrelin production (the hunger hormone) helping you to feel satisfied between meals.
  2. Glutamine is an amino acid that balances blood sugar and increases feelings of fullness, which helps reduce and even stop cravings. A deficiency can cause sugar cravings.

  3. Glutamine modulates gut bacteria, it reduces the population of firmicutes species that are responsible for an increase in the production of the hunger hormone, ghrelin. 

Ingredient focus; Aloe vera

The clear gel inside the aloe leaf has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, both for gut issues as well as to assist in topical wound healing. It is rich in polysaccharides, a natural plant compound made from starch that is very helpful for healing the gut lining when it is damaged or inflamed.

Aloe gel also protects the gut from damage caused by stress, alcohol and chemotherapy or radiation therapy-induced inflammation.

Ingredient focus; Astaxanthin 

Astaxanthin is a highly antioxidant nutrient found in a variety of foods, particularly seafood & yeast. It makes a great antiaging supplement due to its ability to reduce the effects of oxidative stress in the skin; leading to brighter, tighter and more hydrated skin. 

Factors such as aging, sun exposure, toxin exposures from the environment and diet, as well as a variety of nutrient deficiencies, lead to increased oxidative stress in the skin cells. This oxidative stress and inflammation decreases tissue integrity and moisture and contributes to signs of aging such as spots and wrinkles. Supplemental antioxidants such as Astaxanthin can combat this.

The Astaxanthin used by the Gut Co is sourced from a freshwater algae Haematococcus Pluvialis. we use the scientifically backed dosage which is 12mg

Ingredient focus: Guava leaf

Guava leaf is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, it is also rich in Zinc. Guava leaf provides 12 mg of Zinc per dose of REPAIR.

Zinc is essential for digestive health, skin regeneration and immune function. Zinc deficiency is linked to dermatitis, reduced immune function and impaired digestion.

Ingredient focus; Acerola 

Acerola is a nutrient-dense cherry, native to the Caribbean. It is extremely high in vitamin C.

The vitamin C in Repair comes from Acerola, Kakadu plum and Maqui berry providing 200% of the Australian RDI (recommended daily intake) for vitamin C. Vitamin C boosts immune function and is an essential co-factor for collagen production, making it excellent for both gut and skin repair.

Ingredient focus; Dunaliella salina 

Dunaliella salina is nutrient-dense algae and a fantastic source of the antioxidant beta-carotene. Beta-carotene (β-carotene) is a precursor to vitamin A and several studies show that increasing your intake of beta-carotene leads to glowing and radiant skin and may protect the skin against UV radiation from the sun.

Ingredient focus; Kakadu plum 

Kakadu plum has the highest recorded levels of natural Vitamin C content in the world, measuring up to 7000 mg/100g DW, which is 100 times the Vitamin C content in oranges.

It also contains iron and zinc, it’s a powerful antioxidant and has anti-viral properties.

Ingredient focus; Pomegranate husk

Pomegranate husk contains a variety of polyphenols (phytonutrients) that feed good species and limit the growth of pathogenic species in the gut.

It is also a powerful antioxidant, astringent and anti-inflammatory.
