Phygest® is a unique polysaccharide blend that targets digestive discomfort. Phygest combines the bioadhesive benefits of MHB3® Hyaluronan (six U. S. Patents) and the immunomodulatory effects of Betacan™ Schizophyllan. Phygest is a natural alternative to proton pump inhibitors and other traditional options that is safe for daily use.
Phygest eases esophageal, stomach, and intestinal discomfort while promoting healthy stomach pH and digestion. It is safe for continuous daily use. Because Phygest's liquid formulation is fully hydrated, it is absorbed quickly and is immediately put to work by the body.
Phygest is vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, yeast-free, corn-free, sugar-free, non-GMO, and has no artificial or natural colors or flavors. Phygest uses only the finest ingredients from the USA and Europe with full traceability on all ingredients and offers a customer satisfaction guarantee.
Hyaluronan, also known as hyaluronic acid (HA) is a long, unbranched polysaccharide. The polymer chain of hyaluronan ranges in molecular weight from hundreds of units (or Daltons) up to several million.
Hyaluronan is found throughout the mammalian body and is either directly or indirectly involved in every physiological function of the body. Hyaluronan is found in dense concentrations in cartilage, synovial fluid, skin, vertebral discs, bones, urinary tract, cardiac valves, eyes, and various other soft tissue. Hyaluronan is most abundant during embryogenesis and declines in overall quantity and quality throughout life.
HA is primarily recognized for its role in the maintenance of joint health. However, it has established itself as a protectant to gut mucosal tissue. A recent study reveals that a high-molecular-weight hyaluronan-containing gel significantly protects the gastric mucosa. While the mechanism of gastric support promoted by polysaccharides has yet to be fully elucidated, a hyaluronan-containing polysaccharide blend works in part as a gastric coating/binding agent due to its bioadhesive properties.
Oral supplementation of hyaluronan has been shown to be absorbed and effective. Studies with labeled, high-molecular- weight hyaluronan administered orally show systemic distribution in as little as four hours post-administration.
To be part of the CSG family of products, any oral hyaluronan supplement must be bioavailable, absorbed, and effective. Hyaluronan must be completely hydrated in order to be bioavailable and absorbed. Once absorbed it must have the appropriate molecular characteristics to be effective.
Schizophyllan is 1, 3-1, 6 beta glucan derived from the cell wall of the Schizophyllum commune mushroom. Beta-glucans can be derived from multiple sources including grains and mushrooms and are widely recognized for their immune benefits. Beta-glucans derived from water soluble mushrooms are considered the most effective in their ability to enhance the immune response.
Schizophyllan is a biological defense modifier that nutritionally potentiates the immune response. This immune activation occurs by schizophyllan's ability to directly target immune cells in the host. 1, 3-1, 6 beta glucans elicit a more effective physiological response. As a beta glucan, schizophyllan is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the US FDA.
Contains no animal derivatives, sugar, yeast, grain, gluten, starch, soy, egg, dairy products, artificial coloring or artificial flavoring and is 100% vegan.
