Stomach Health

The Alexsyn Solution

The Alexsyn Solution

2 years ago

Common treatments for ulcers include histamine 2 blockers (H2) like Famotidine and Cimetidine as well as proton pump inhibitors (PPI) such as Omeprazole.  The PPI and H2 solutions rely on reducing acid production in the stomach. The flaw in this approach is that humans need stomach acid to properly digest food and absorb nutrients.

Alexsyn’s Amend GI™ offers a unique and natural ulcer solution. By stimulating collagen and fibronectin production, the ulcer is able to heal while reestablishing the balance of acid and mucus. The primary ingredients found in Amend GI™ are Centella asiatica and chitosan. Both have been traditionally used for wound healing. C. asiatica belongs to a plant family native to Asia and parts of Africa that has the ability to increase collagen production by local contact. Studies of the C. asiatica found the plant speeds up collagen production by 40%. This increased collagen production rebuilds the mucosal layer in the stomach lining enabling cells to migrate and repair the wound.

The second main ingredient in Amend GI™ is chitosan. Chitosan is a sugar extracted from chitin, one of the most plentiful biological substances in the world - second only to cellulose.  Chitin makes up the exoskeletons of insects, all shellfish, and the cell walls of fungi.  Chitosan is an ingredient commonly used to promote blood clotting in wounds and in burn dressing.

The final ingredients used in Amend GI™ are β-carotene and vitamin C. Both play strong supporting roles in the healing process. β-carotene helps to increase wound strength by increasing the rate of re-epithelialization and restoring epithelial structure. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect against cell damage. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory and is able to create strength in the new collagen that is formed.
