These Gastriplex Vegetarian Capsules by Thorne Research offer support for a healthy GI tract. In studies‚ these capsules have been shown to provide gastrointestinal and digestive support for small animals. You may use these supplements to help ease gastrointestinal discomfort for dogs‚ cats or horses.

Gastriplex works by decreasing gut permeability to minimize the absorption of allergenic proteins. It also helps by providing healthy probiotics that help the body support digestion.

Unhealthy eating habits (like a dog getting into a garbage can)‚ low quality pet foods and unnecessary stress can all contribute to gastrointestinal disturbances in our companion animals.

Food intolerances are often thought to be a human issue exclusively‚ but they are often seen in our companion animals‚ as evidenced by visits to the veterinarian’s office. Although it is important to learn which foods are causing disturbances to the animal’s GI tract‚ it is also essential to treat the cause. Usually‚ veterinarians find that the root of the problem is increased gut permeability‚ which allows for absorption of larger protein fragments. By improving the integrity of the gut’s lining and decreasing its permeability‚ the sensitivity to these foods can be greatly reduced.

Gastriplex by Thorne Research offers complete intestinal support‚ which combines nutrients that are optimal for promoting mucosal support and gut integrity along with probiotics and other nutrients that serve the purpose of supporting the body’s natural inflammatory response.

 How Gastriplex Works

Glutamine is crucial for maintaining the integrity of mucosal cells and the function of the gut barrier. It also works to boost the immune function of the gut by increasing its production of sIgA (secretory immunoglobulin)‚ an immunity-promoting antibody.

NAG (N-acetyl D-glucosamine) works to maintain the body’s normal range of intestinal permeability. It works by enhancing mucus production and getting involved in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans‚ which are known as the “building blocks” of connective tissue.

Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast of the probiotic kind that helps to decrease the permeability of the intestinal wall. Much like glutamine‚ this good yeast has a protective effect on the gastrointestinal tract by upping the production of secretory immunoglobulin.

Lactobacillus sporogenes is another probiotic that has been shown to be safe and effective. It survives in the stomach acid and produces lactic acid within the intestine.  Just as they are effective with humans‚ studies have shown that probiotics are effective at supporting the overall health of the gastrointestinal tract of our companion animals.

Slippery elm is a demulcent and emollient that protects the mucous membranes within the intestinal tract.

Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) works by supporting a healthy intestinal lining. It also helps by increasing blood flow and working to maintain a normal level of muscle relaxation.

This product is not intended for use by humans. It was specifically made by Thorne Research for to help ease gastrointestinal discomfort in companion animals.

Quercetin‚ an abundant dietary flavonoid‚ has significant positive action in the intestinal tract. Gastriplex contains Thorne Research's patented quercetin chalcone‚ which‚ because it's water-soluble‚ makes it a highly bioavailable form of quercetin.

My geriatric Corgi had 3 bouts (of increasing severity) of gastroenteritis last summer, the last being a full blown Hemorrhagic Gastroenteris episode. After she recovered, I was looking for a quality probiotic product to try. She started Gastriplex in September (2 capsules a day, sprinkled on breakfast and dinner) and has so far been able to avoid another severe attack. I am very impressed with Gastriplex and wanted to write a recommendation to maybe help other dogs who may be experiencing these horrible episodes. I even have started her on thorne's b complex vet for another condition, as after my experience with Gastriplex I feel very confident in the quality of Thorne Veterinary products.

Gastriplex has helped my dogs tremendously.
July 7, 2011
My Belgian Sheepdogs suffered from a bacterial overgrowth about six months ago and were treated with antibiotics. They were fine for a while and then the loose stools started again. They were checked and lab cultures were sent out and all was clear. One night, I spent hours on the computer and read lots of info on Thorne's Gastriplex and Bacillus Coagulans. I figured it could not hurt to give these supplements a try. I pick up after the dogs every day and It was getting to be so negative because their poops were so awful. I religiously used the Gastriplex, Bacillus Coagulans, and a very potent probiotic powder in their food. After about 5 days of really using these products, one afternoon, I was shocked after my dogs defecated. The stools were formed and all of the mucous was gone. It seemed like a miracle. My dogs have now been on these three supplements for about 3 weeks and their stools are terrific. I can hardly believe that I have found the solution. My Veterinarian was at his wits end and suggested that I take them to an Internist. That is when I made sure that the dogs got their supplements in each meal. I recently had another visit to my Vet for another problem and took all of the literature about these products so my Vet could read all about these wonderful products. I have a firm believer NOW in holistic medicine especially for doggy stomach issues. I hope that you post my review because may be it will inspire someone else to try these products for their dogs.
Truly helps my dogs and is really a great product.
I would like to buy bigger quantities of Gastriplex and Bacillus Coagulans because I have four dogs.

It Works
June 19, 2011
Over several generations some of my dogs have had intermittent diarrhea. It's a serious problem and I have researched solutions, tried diet, additives, herbals, rice, raw food, etc. I have never had continued success-until Gastriplex. I am now on my third month of capsules with the dog who has suffered the most. Every day when I check his stool I hold my breath waiting for the let down. It hasn't happened. I am impressed and optimistic that Gastriplex is what they say it is, a solution.
It works.
Administering three capsules to my reluctant dog is a bit of a pain. But we get it done. One capsule would be much easier.

Great product but will not be buying again from here
June 7, 2011
These capusules definitely help our 7 year old labrador that suffers with Colitus reguarly. Even though her health still has its occasion ups and downs, generally we have seen a great improvement from using these capsules. I will definitely continue to use them however, am not impressed with Pure Forumlas increasing the price within a few months, from under $30 to $33. Then, when going to buy them again today I have discovered that they have now put the price up to an unbelievable $47! This is terrible that Pure Formulas are taking advantage of good people, just wanting to help their pets. (My stars are for the product, most definitely not for Pure Formulas).
Good product, easy to open and distribute onto food, seemingly pleasant taste for animals, a great help.
Price, ethics of the company selling it.

Really good product!
April 16, 2011
My standard poodle had very bloody diarrhea for several months and was loosing weight. we tried everything. I finally found a website that told of how great Gastriplex was so I decided to try it. I began purchasing it about a year ago and after about 3 months it really made a difference. I still have to cook her food, but with the gastriplex, her diahrrea is gone and I know she is getting a good product. We also use Canine Basic to assure she is getting complete nutrition.
My dog eats it freely when i sprinkle it over her food.
I wish it came in bulk since I have to give her 4 capsules a day, it would be nice to be able to scoop it.

The change with Gastriplex
March 29, 2011
I have used Gastriplex for my Cavalier's for 3 years. I just purchased a new bottle today and reviewed the ingredients. I see that all of the milligrams of the ingredients have been cut in half. Does anyone know the reason for this?
It helps support digestive issues with our pups.
Same price as old gastriple ingredients but new formula has half of the milligrams in one capsule now.

Skippy is 13.5 yo
February 16, 2011
I have been giving Skippy, my 13.5 yo 16 lb "rat terrier"(?) 2 capsules daily with food for about 5- 6weeks because he has had really (appearing) painful upset stomach followed by loose stool about 24 hrs along and not eating during that time(this over about 6 mos since I added a third dog to the family) - this had been happening about every 2-3 wks - I have also added cup of yoghurt daily - he has had 2 occasions of not eating ? painful belly ache but this has only lasted less than 12 hrs and no loose stools during or afterward and I intend to continue the Gastriplex; am pleased with outcome and he seems to be getting even better as the weeks have passed(shorter duration of discomfort) - even seems to be a little friskier in general. Appreciate the product!

Gastriplex is phenomenal - and the price at PureFormulas.com is too. I've used it on so many rescued pets - and those I petsit, as well. Any pet prone to IBD symptoms will be greatly helped by Gastriplex

indispensable at our house

My 10 year old Bichon Frise has inflammatory bowel disease, and taking Gastriplex regularly means that he does not have to take antibiotics all the time. Stool quality is consistently normal as long as we don't commit some dietary indiscretion, and then even that is cleared up in a day or two. It has truly been a miracle cure for Leo.
It works!

Miracle Product!
December 12, 2010
My 15 yr old diabetic cat w/ renal failure was diagnosed with IBD. With his complex medical problems, I was left with very few treatment options. GASTRIPLEX has truly been a miracle and there is nothing else out there like Gastriplex. Used regularly, your animal will definately show a marked improvement. I also have a Brittany who has a very sensitive stomach from multiple food allergies. I have used Gastriplex to settle his gut down (while we were trying to figure out the food allergies) and within a few dosages, he's back to normal. This is a great product and I am forever indebted to Thorne Research for formulating it.
Wish they could make smaller capsule for cats

This really works on my senior greyhound
November 5, 2010
My greyhound has always been prone to loose stools and diarhea to the point that he couldn't always make it outside in time. Gastriplex really helps my sweetie to have normal bowel movements and bowel control. We prefer to open the capules and sprinkle on his food rather than put the capsules in whole. The taste is pleasant to him. It works fast and better than pumpkin does. I wouldn't be without this stuff! And Pureformulas has the best price I have seen.

Wonderful product
October 23, 2010
My German Sheperd had bouts of mucous with loose stools almost every 2 months this past year. We were in the ER room 3 times because of it, then finally I started to see the early symptoms but stilled ended up at the Vets. She's on her 2nd bottle and so far so good. I will continue to give this to her for the rest of her life and will start my other German Sheperds on it after our next vet visit. I think it is a beneficial product to keep their colon and intestinal track healthy along with the appropriate dog food choice.
Ingredients are beneficial to keep intestinal track and colon healthy. Seems to benefit IBS/IBD and bacterial overgrowth issues.
