Pro GI Calm includes the botanical ingredients Boswellia serrata, Withania somnifera (ashwagandha), and ginger, with vitamin D3. Specialized digestive enzymes are included to increase the breakdown of gluten, and the probiotic yeast Saccharomyces boulardii reduces the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
Pro GI Calm can be used to reduce GI inflammation related to IBD, and prevent the exacerbation symptoms of IBD and celiac disease. As well, it can help reduce psychological stress levels involved with managing chronic GI inflammatory conditions.
PRO GI Calm provides an innovative and effective combination of ingredients to manage and prevent inflammation and exacerbation of IBD through multiple targets. Most enzyme formulations provide inadequate support for people with IBD or celiac disease because they fail to provide the specific enzymes needed in the digestive tract of these patients. AN-peptidases, which are a source of DPP-IV, help break down gluten and other proline-rich proteins.
Pro GI Calm is traditionally used in Herbal medicine to help relieve digestive upset/disturbances including lack of appetite, nausea, digestive spasms, indigestion, dyspepsia and flatulent colic. Pro GI Calm contains digestive enzymes that help digest proteins and a probiotic that forms part of a natural healthy gut flora and helps reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.

IBD Relief provides an innovative and effective combination of ingredients to help those with food sensitivities and intestinal inflammation to manage symptoms and prevent exacerbations of both IBD and Celiac disease.
Prolyl endopeptidases (PEPs):
PEP enzymes help break down gluten before it can cause an immune response. PEPs work on the stomach’s natural pH and degrade gluten 60 times faster than other commonly used enzymes.
Boswellia is well known for its anti-inflammatory effects. In clinical trials, more patients with UC experienced remission using Boswellia compared to those who used conventional sulfasalazine treatment.1
Vitamin D has been shown to help prevent autoimmune diseases. Vitamin D also affects how the colon responds to and heals from chemical injury.
Psychological stress can accompany any chronic disease. Ashwagandha is well known for its ability to enhance the body’s response to stress and support immune system function.
Ginger is well known for its ability to relieve digestive upset including nausea and intestinal cramps. It has proven anti-inflammatory properties and can improve intestinal motility.
This probiotic yeast is beneficial for reducing inflammation and infection in the intestinal tract as a result of microbial imbalance. In addition to preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea, studies suggest it can reduce inflammation and support remission in IBD.
