Good health begins in your gut. Constipation, gas, bloating, cramping, acid reflux and indigestion not only make your life miserable, but they’re also a sign - an omen, really - of bigger health problems to come.
See, all of these symptoms come down to one thing: Instead of critical nutrients reaching, protecting and fueling your cells, tissues, and organs, toxic waste ends up building up then spewing into your bloodstream, wreaking havoc on your heart, brain, lungs, liver, and skin.
The result? Dysfunction in your digestive system can result in weight gain, immune issues, heart disease and even depression.
With our Core Restore IV therapy, you’ll get targeted antioxidant therapy to fend off free radicals as well as amino acids l-glutamine (which supports GI health) and l-arginine, which helps maintain blood flow. This incredible vitamin infusion also includes glycyrrhizin, a licorice-like compound with incredible gut-healing properties.
Don’t suffer one more day with GI distress. Let the nutrients in Core Restore bring your digestion back to great health.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble nutrient. Humans cannot manufacture vitamin C and must rely on food and supplements to obtain it.
Vitamin C is best known for its role in the synthesis of collagen, a connective tissue protein used as a structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. A deficiency of vitamin C leads to scurvy, which is characterized by insufficient collagen production.
It is also a powerful antioxidant, protecting against free radical damage, supporting immune health, and even promoting an antiviral effect.
Glutathione is a potent free radical scavenger composed of three amino acids (cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid). It is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy detoxification and coronary artery support.
Glycyrrhizin is the key compound from the root of a legume called Glycyrrhiza glabra. More commonly known as licorice (medicinally, not the candy), glycyrrhizin has a mildly sweet flavor similar to anise and fennel, though it is not botanically related to either plant.
Glycyrrhizin helps support adrenal health, ease digestion-related ailments, boost immunity, aid in weight loss, and even support liver health and protect against hepatitis C.
L-arginine is an amino acid that helps to produce nitric oxide (NO), a gas that enhances the flow of blood to your arteries and veins. As such, arginine has been shown to have significant cardiac benefits, including optimizing the flow of blood and transport of oxygen to all the cells and tissues of your body by supporting the health of your blood vessels and coronary arteries.
L-arginine has also been found to be useful in supporting joint health and blood pressure and has even been shown to boost libido.
L-glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body. Though it is classified as a non-essential amino acid, glutamine is essential for maintaining the intestinal structure.
Glutamine is also an antioxidant and serves as a major source of fuel for your digestive system, keeping it energized and working strong. As such, your GI tract is one of the biggest consumers of glutamine in your entire body.
Zinc is an essential mineral, meaning your body does not produce. It is critical for cellular metabolism and supporting the activity of 300 enzymes. It is also required for a proper sense of both taste and smell.
Your body cannot store zinc, which means that daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state within your body.
THE NITTY GRITTY
More than 60 to 70 million people are affected by overt diagnosable digestive diseases, and tens of millions more suffer from subclinical gastrointestinal (GI) health issues that alter your ability to absorb nutrients from your diet and supplements. This, in turn, can undermine even the most proactive attempt to truly take care of your health.
Fortunately, research shows us that in an antioxidant and fiber-rich diet, there are targeted nutrients that can support healthy digestion and work to fend off many of the problematic conditions that can result from poor digestion.
Key among these are antioxidants. While most people associate antioxidants with immune health, the truth many antioxidants are vital for digestion. Case in point - vitamin C. According to the National Institutes of Health, vitamin C not only supports oral health (the first line of digestion) but also iron absorption.
Another antioxidant, glutathione, also serves double duty as a powerhouse detoxifier, working to remove toxins from your GI track so you can absorb the nutrients your body needs for optimal health.
Amino acids work to detoxify, as well as heal digestive disorders. Specifically, L-arginine not only supports glutathione production but also reduces inflammation in the digestive tract. L-glutamine then steps in to target intestinal health, healing of ulcers and leaky gut, promoting healthy bowel movements, and proper detoxification.1-4
Zinc plays an interesting and vital role in digestion. This mineral is needed to produce stomach acid. Without proper levels of zinc, your body cannot properly break down food, especially protein, and release the nutrients your body needs for optimal health.
Lastly, glycyrrhizin helps to protect your upper GI tract by increasing production of protective mucosal cells in your gastrointestinal system, which is one of your body’s natural defense mechanisms. Research shows that glycyrrhizin protects against ulcers and reduces intestinal irritation and related symptoms.5-7
