Gastrointestinal (GI) health is directly affected by factors such as poor diet and a stressful lifestyle. The prevalence of refined sugars and carbohydrates and the low presence of fiber in the Western diet have been directly linked to the alteration of the GI microflora. Maintaining healthy microbial balance and keeping pathogenic microbes in check is an integral part of promoting optimal GI health and overall well-being.
Intestin-ol provides a blend of three essential oils that act in synergy to promote healthy microbial balance and immune support. Formulated with the goal of supporting the GI flora by promoting balanced immunity, Intestin-ol includes potent thyme, oregano and clove oils. These have been used for centuries to promote microbial balance and to help protect the immune system from microbial stressors.

Thyme Oil (Thymol)
Thymol, the essential oil of thyme used in Intestin-ol, is standardized to include up to 75% high-powered oil for enhanced GI support. In vitro studies show that thymol interferes with the production of Candida albicans’s protective matrix (or biofilm), as well as the biofilms of mature C. albicans forms, thus creating an inhospitable environment for C. albicans to thrive.
Clove Oil (Eugenol)
The clove oil used in Intestin-ol is standardized to include up to 86% eugenol, a powerful antioxidant and potent microbial balancing agent in the GI system. In vitro, eugenol adversely affected the adherence of C. albicans as well as inhibited filamentous cell growth.
The oregano oil used in Intestin-ol is standardized to include up to 75% carvacrol, a powerful antioxidant and potent microbial balancing agent in the GI system.
