BACKGROUND:
 
The mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal tract provides protection against microbial infection, environmental toxins and allergens, and the erosive effects of its own secretions. Compromise of this mucosal barrier may lead to invasion of pathogenic organisms, increased diffusion of toxic and antigenic substances into tissues, impairment of digestive and absorptive functions, pain, hemorrhage, malignant transformation of cells, and, in more serious cases, death.*
 
Gastritis is characterized by mucosal inflammation, infiltration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs), lymphocytes, macrophages, and other immune cells, and a decrease in mucosal defense mechanisms. It is a common medical condition often associated with chronic use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), alcoholism, and infection with Helicobacter pylori. Less common causes of gastritis include autoimmune disorders, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, excessive stress, bile reflux, viral illness, Crohn’s disease, ingestion of poisons, and direct trauma. Gastritis can be acute or chronic, erosive or non-erosive, symptomatic or asymptomatic, and can affect one or more regions of the stomach.
 
Gastritis can be a precursor to more serious pathologies such as PUD and gastric cancer. According to some estimates, over ten million new cases of PUD are diagnosed each year. Actual numbers may be much higher as many cases of PUD are asymptomatic and thus go undiagnosed and hence unreported. Originally believed to be a disease of excess acid production, PUD is now largely attributed to H. pylori infection and chronic use of NSAIDs. Despite successful use of H. pylori eradication and acid reduction therapies, PUD remains a major health problem, especially among the elderly where mortality rates associated with bleeding and perforation may reach as high as 17% and 45%, respectively. H. pylori associated gastritis is also the most significant risk factor for gastric cancer. Approximately 20,000 new cases of gastric carcinoma are reported each year in the United States. Unfortunately, most carry a poor prognosis because of late detection.
 
Leaky gut syndrome is a condition of disrupted intestinal barrier function. The mucosal lining of the intestinal lining is a critical interface between the host and the environment and has been described as an “intelligent” barrier charged with the responsibility of discriminating between self and non-self, and selectively absorbing substances beneficial to the host while barring entry to harmful agents. Many disease states and environmental stressors can compromise the intestinal barrier and lead to impaired function and hyperpermeability. These include infectious or inflammatory gastrointestinal disorders, psychological stress, trauma, burns, surgery, dietary influences, alcoholism, medication use, chemotherapy and radiation, disruption of the intestinal flora, hepatobiliary disease, and aging. These factors alter gut permeability primarily by disrupting normal absorptive pathways through either intestinal epithelial cells (transcellular pathways) or the tight junctions between epithelial cells (paracellular pathways). Once intestinal hyperpermeability is established, continuous entry of harmful substances from the intestinal lumen into the mucosa and beyond can lead to a variety of health conditions: translocation of microorganisms may increase the risk of infection; translocation of proinflammatory substances may cause or exacerbate intestinal or systemic inflammatory disorders; and translocation of antigenic material may give rise to allergic or autoimmune reactions.
 
Zinc L-carnosine and L-glutamine represent two of the most promising natural agents for maintaining the health and integrity of the gastrointestinal lining. Instead of interfering with stomach acid production or destroying bacteria within the gut, these nutraceuticals strengthen gastric and intestinal tissues and enhance their resistance to injury. In animal and human studies, zinc L-carnosine has been shown to exert antiulcerogenic effects and L-glutamine to significantly improve intestinal barrier function.*
