MucosaHeal (Imix Naturals)
MucosaHeal provides demulcent and mucilage activity for the gastrointestinal tract and mucosal lining. It helps to improve gut health and hence beneficial in chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
Use of MucosaHeal should vary according to the severity of symptoms you're experiencing. Many natural health professionals classify severe symptoms as those including intestinal bleeding and severe inflammation. Moderate symptoms are classed as those including minimal or sporadic intestinal bleeding and moderate inflammation.
Direction of Use
MucosaHeal must always be taken on an empty stomach (1/2 hour before meals, or 2 hours after). If you can't swallow pills, you can empty the contents of the capsules into water, or a non-acidic juice like apple or pear, mix well and drink on an empty stomach.
To help with severe symptoms: Take 2 capsules on an empty stomach, 3 times a day. Then take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
To help with moderate symptoms: Take 1 capsule 3 times per day, on an empty stomach. Then take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
Maintenance: Once your major symptoms concerns have been resolved, or if your symptoms are mild to begin with, take 3 capsules before bed, on an empty stomach. Ideally, empty your bowels first.
