Nutritional Support for the Management of Leaky Gut Syndrome
GI Sustain™ is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support, including amino acids and prebiotic fiber, combined with readily digestible, low-allergenic-potential macronutrients for patients with leaky gut syndrome. Featuring L-glutamine and isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO), this formula supports intestinal mucosal integrity and promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria to address dysbiosis associated with leaky gut syndrome.
- Supports microbial balance.
- Nourishes the cells of the colonic mucosa.
- Features low-allergy-potential rice protein concentrate supplemented with L-lysine HCl and L-threonine for an improved protein source.
- Provides rice syrup solids as a natural energy source.
- Provides a readily absorbed and metabolized lipid source.
- Provides the prebiotic IMO to selectively nourish beneficial bacteria, including lactobacillus and bifidobacteria, including Bifidobacteria longum.
- IMO is a gentle fiber that is naturally sweet but has a low-glycemic index.
- Formulated with nutrients such as zinc gluconate and L-glutamine to nutritionally support gastrointestinal mucosa integrity.

Leaky Gut Syndrome:a Risk Factor for Multiple Chronic Conditions Leaky gut syndrome—or increased intestinal permeability—describes damage to the intestinal mucosal lining, causing leaks in this protective barrier. Enlarged spaces between the cells of the gut wall allow undigested food and other potentially harmful compounds (e.g., bacteria, toxins, waste) to enter the bloodstream.
This can trigger digestive and other symptoms, such as bloating, gas, bowel irregularities, increased food sensitivities, and compromised liver detoxification function. Potential associations with leaky gut syndrome:
• Digestive dysfunction
• Poor diet
• Immune function
• Food sensitivities
• Bacterial overgrowth
• Certain medications
GI Sustain: Formulated for Patients with Leaky Gut Syndrome
GI Sustain is a medical food delivered as a nutritionally supplemented powdered drink mix. A medical food should be used under the supervision of a physician or other healthcare practitioner and is intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition. GI Sustain is formulated to provide specific vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients to support patients with leaky gut syndrome who have chronic digestive dysfunction.
It's enhanced with specific nutrients—including rice protein developed through a patented manufacturing process—and targeted ingredients to nutritionally manage gastrointestinal health, including support for intestinal lining and immune function (through a healthy bacterial balance). Rice protein has a lower allergenic potential than many common animal or vegetable protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for dietary elimination programs. This product is formulated for use with modified elimination diet (to reduce dietary chemicals and common foods with allergenic potential) to offer a higher level of support for better results.
Medical foods must contain ingredients that are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) or FDA approved, and Metagenics continually evaluates formula ingredients in concert with current nutritional research for optimal safety and effectiveness. Plus, Metagenics' manufacturing facility has 3 certifications for good manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality. (This product is suitable for those who may be sensitive to lactose or soy. See online catalog for complete allergen information.)
