Mucosa Butter Recipe for Supreme Gut Health
Posted: 24th April 2017
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the importance of optimal gut health cannot be understated. From conquering depression to overcoming auto immune disease and chronic fatigue to enhancing elite sports performance and optimal body composition-gut health is king!
Gut health and the associated biome can be compromised from a myriad of factors including anti-biotic use, poor diet, stress etc.
According to our resident functional medicine expert Sam Queen, “Friendly bacteria normally reside in the fatty layer of the intestinal mucosa. When these layers and the friendly bacteria become depleted, the body’s immune function deteriorates. Your body uses the friendly bacteria, glutamine and oils to rebuild the mucosal lining of your bowel. The colostrum binds free iron, so it isn’t available to bacteria. A healthy mucosa is critical for a strong immune system. The following protocol is especially important after one has taken antibiotics and helps restore the intestinal mucosa.
Mucosa Butter Recipe
Mucosa Rebuilder with Glutamine
• 1 stick lightly salted Butter, softened (organic if possible)
• 1/2 cup extra virgin Olive Oil (organic if possible)
• 10 capsules Acidophilus “friendly bacteria” with Bifidum (Probiotic One)
• 7 capsules Colostrum (7 x 500mg)
• 5 capsules L-Glutamine (500 mg each)
• 7 capsules Zinc Carnosine (8 mg zinc per capsule)
• 3 capsules N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG)
• 3 capsules L-Threonine (500 mg per capsule)
• 1 tablespoon raw/unfiltered Honey
The ingredients above can be ordered from Sams website: http://designed2win.com/store/Supplements/
Procedure: Mix butter and olive oil with a hand mixer until smooth. Open all capsules and empty contents into olive oil mixture. Discard empty capsules. Add 1 tablespoon honey. Blend again. Store mixture in refrigerator. Eat 1 tablespoon daily for 3 days, then eat 1 heaping teaspoon daily. Eat directly from the spoon or you may put it on food, i.e., whole grain toast, veggies, etc., if necessary for improved tolerance. Don’t heat the mixture, as this will kill the “friendly bacteria”
NOTE: Omit the Glutamine if you have a high GM6MPD (13 or higher) and/or high Bicarb (Carbon Dioxide) level (27 or higher)
All the best,
