Leaky Gut Repair Caps
Dr. Aieta’s Leaky Gut Repair caps are a dairy-free immunoglobulin concentrate formula that supports healthy digestion and immune function. This purified source of immunoglobulin G (IgG) is derived from bovine serum making it free of lactose, casein, and gluten. ‡
Life Begins in the Gut
The digestive system is the foundation of getting and staying healthy. Although there are many benefits to a digestive system running optimally, some key advantages include a healthy immune system and protection against harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast and fungus
Immunoglobulins play an important role in both the support of healthy digestion and immune function. They are proteins that function as antibodies to neutralize and eliminate unwanted toxins like lipopolysaccharide (LPS) before they have a chance to activate the immune system and induce inflammation. ‡
How Do Dr. Aieta’s Leaky Gut Repair Caps work?
The method by which immunoglobulins and other bioactive peptides found in the Leaky Gut Repair Caps help to maintain gut barrier function is believed to involve the direct binding of microbial components found naturally in the digestive tract. In vitro studies have demonstrated that the immunoglobulins bind to many potentially toxic microbial antigens that appear normally in the intestinal tract. Immunoglobulins bind microbes and toxins in the GI tract and eliminate them prior to immune system activation.
These microbial antigens (eg. bacterial endotoxins) that are present in the intestinal tract due to the normal breakdown and turnover of resident bacteria and/or result from the consumption of contaminated food or water have the potential to activate the intestinal immune system. By binding to these microbial antigens, it helps to create a complex so large that it has difficulty penetrating the intestinal lining, allowing instead for this antigen complex to remain in the intestinal tract and exit through normal bowel elimination.
In a study done by Detzel, et al. using an in vitro cell culture model showed that binding of antigens by the immunoglobulins in this product prevented the translocation of the antigens across the intestinal lining which in turn avoided the production of inflammatory cytokines by adjacent immune cells. These results suggest that the binding action of the immunoglobulins in Leaky Gut Repair Caps helps keep toxic protein molecules within the lumen of the intestinal tract and avoid their absorption into the blood stream. This may help manage gut permeability or “Leaky Gut,” and the immune activation that occurs with exposure to such protein antigens. By binding to microbes, toxins and undigested proteins, the immunoglobilins in Leaky Gut Repair caps enhance microbiome balance and facilitates gut barrier strength, resetting immune tolerance. ‡
