    Complete GI support for dogs‚ cats‚ and horses that suffer from digestive upset

    Gastriplex supports the health of the whole GI tract in dogs‚ cats‚ and horses who suffer from poor digestion from food intolerance‚ indiscreet eating‚ poor quality pet foods‚ antibiotics‚ and stress.

    Intolerance to various foods is common among dogs‚ cats‚ and horses. In some instances‚ the intolerance can be caused by problem foods‚ indiscreet eating (like from a garbage can)‚ treatment with antibiotics‚ and stress. In other instances‚ however‚ the intolerance can result from a systemic issue the animal is having‚ in which case treating the cause of the intolerance is essential. An increase in the permeability of the animal's gut that results in the absorption of larger protein fragments is often at the root of the problem. By decreasing gut permeability‚ which improves the overall integrity of the gut‚ the animal's intolerance to foods can be greatly reduced. ThorneVET's Gastriplex is an innovative and comprehensive intestinal support product that does two things: first‚ it combines amino acids and botanicals that provide mucosal support and gut integrity‚ and second‚ it combines probiotics and other nutrients that support the GI tract's normal inflammatory response.

    The amino acid L-glutamine plays a key role in maintaining mucosal cell integrity and gut barrier function. L-Glutamine also enhances the gut's immune function‚ in part by increasing the production of secretory immunoglobulin A‚ an antibody that promotes immune function. N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (NAG)‚ helps maintain normal intestinal permeability because it enhances mucus production and is involved in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans‚ the building blocks of the gut's connective tissue. Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast that helps to decrease intestinal permeability. Like L-glutamine‚ this beneficial yeast exerts its protective effect on the GI tract by increasing the production of secretory immunoglobulin A. Bacillus coagulans is a safe and effective probiotic that survives in stomach acid and produces lactic acid in the intestine. The probiotics in Gastriplex can be very effective in helping to maintain a healthy GI tract in an animal. The botanical‚ slippery elm‚ which has demulcent and emollient properties‚ provides soothing protection for the mucus membranes of the intestinal tract‚ and deglycyrrhizinated licorice supports a healthy intestinal lining by increasing blood flow and maintaining normal muscle relaxation. Quercetin is a potent flavonoid that has significant positive action in the intestinal tract. Gastriplex contains ThorneVET's exclusive‚ well-absorbed form of quercetin: quercetin phytosome.

    He had terrible Gas before I started using Gastriplex by Thorne Research. He eats raw and high quality dog food but needed that extra boost.

    Pros

    Easy to hide in the food.

    Cons

    A bit expensive.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    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 thornes b complex vet for another condition as after my experience with Gastriplex I feel very confident in the quality of Thorne Veterinary products.

    Over several generations some of my dogs have had intermittent diarrhea. Its a serious problem and I have researched solutions tried diet additives, herbals, rice, raw food, etc. I have never had continued success-until i found Gastriplex by Thorne Research. 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 hasnt happened. I am impressed and optimistic that Gastriplex is what they say it is a solution.

    Pros

    It works.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Gastriplex By Thorne Research definitely helps our 7 year old labrador that suffers with Colitis 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.

    Pros

    Good product. Easy to open and distribute onto food. Seemingly pleasant taste for animals, a great help.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    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 by Thorne Research 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 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.

    Pros

    My dog eats it freely when I sprinkle it over her food.

    Cons

    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.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
