People with inflammatory bowel disease suffer from a damaged glycosaminoglycan layer (mucosal lining) and their intestinal tract is often riddled with ulcers, fissures, inflamed patches and sometimes fistulas. MucosaHeal provides excellent demulcent and mucilage activity for the gastrointestinal tract and mucosal lining, thanks to the ingredients.

Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) - reduces muscle spasms, promotes adrenal gland function, soothes inflammation and fights bacterial, viral and parasitic infection. DGL also increases the number of mucus-secreting cells in the intestine, which improves the quality of the mucosal lining, lengthens intestinal cell life and enhances microcirculation in the gastrointestinal tract. DGL is a very powerful anti-inflammatory that is often used to replace steroid (eg. Prednisone) therapy by naturopathic physicians. It is also an excellent remedy for heartburn.*
Slippery Elm - good for diarrhea and ulcers when taken internally. Soothes inflamed mucous membranes of the stomach, intestines and urinary tract.*
Marshmallow Root - soothes and heals mucous membranes, skin and other tissues. Aids the body in expelling excess mucus and fluid.*
N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) - an amino sugar that forms the basis of complex molecular structures that are key parts of the connective tissue and mucous membranes of the body - tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone matrix, skin, synovial (joint) fluid, and intestinal lining. To maintain healthy absorption and digestion of food, the body needs a healthy mucosal lining to lubricate and protect the digestive tract. To keep this lining healthy the body uses the natural amino acids and sugars L-Glutamine and N-Acetyl Glucosamine. It is also an immune system modulator with anti-tumor properties. NAG is also used by naturopathic physicians to replace steroid drug therapy.*

Use of MucosaHeal should vary according to the severity of symptoms you're experiencing. Many natural health professionals classify severe symptoms as those including intestinal bleeding and severe inflammation. Moderate symptoms are classed as those including minimal or sporadic intestinal bleeding and moderate inflammation.
MucosaHeal must always be taken on an empty stomach (1/2 hour before meals, or 2 hours after). If you can't swallow pills, you can empty the contents of the capsules into water, or a non-acidic juice like apple or pear, mix well and drink on an empty stomach.
To help with severe symptoms: Take 2 capsules on an empty stomach, 3 times a day. Then take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
To help with moderate symptoms: Take 1 capsule 3 times per day, on an empty stomach. Then take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
Maintenance: Once your major symptoms concerns have been resolved, or if your symptoms are mild to begin with, take 3 capsules before bed, on an empty stomach. Ideally, empty your bowels first.
