Micotherapy Gastro is a food supplement containing organically-grown Hericium erinaceus and plant extracts that promote digestive system function.
Micotherapy Gastro is a formulation developed to improve the physiological functions of the gastrointestinal system, particularly in the presence of inflammatory situations.
- Hericium erinaceus whole mushroom pulverised
- Mastinat (Pistacia lentiscus) dry extract
- DGL Liquorice dry extract (tit. at max. 2% in glycyrrhizic acid)
- Hericium erinaceus dry extract (titrated at 50% in polysaccharides)
PROPERTIES OF THE INGREDIENTS:
- Hericium erinaceus: commonly known as ‘Lion’s mane’, is traditionally used in the treatment of gastric conditions. By virtue of its anti-inflammatory and healing properties, it promotes the regeneration of the gastrointestinal mucosa and can be useful in inflammatory and infectious conditions involving the mucous membranes of the digestive tract.
- Mastinat dry extract is a resin produced by Pistacia lentiscus that boasts various properties. It is particularly useful for stomach complaints such as gastritis and ulcers and its antibacterial action also makes it ideal for Helicobacter pylori infections.
- DGL Liquorice: has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, healing and mucosal protective properties, making it useful in cases of gastro-oesophageal conditions such as stomach pain, heartburn and oesophageal reflux. Deglycyrrhizinated extract (max. 2% glycyrrhizic acid) brings the benefits of whole liquorice without the side effects of glycyrrhizic acid.
