What Does Lectin Guard Do?
Lectin Guard contains Slippery Elm, a slippery substance that coats the surface of the intestine, & Bladderwrack, a seaweed that is thought to deactivate harmful lectins by preventing them from “sticking” to the gut wall & to other foods. Together, these two ingredients help allow harmful lectins to “slip away”.
What are Lectins?
Lectins bind specifically to common carbohydrates & certain nutrients found in food, preventing the nutrients’ absorption & use by the body. Because of these actions, lectins are often referred to as an “anti-nutrient.”
What Do They Do?
They are thought to prevent the body from absorbing important nutrients, but they can also result in bloating, gas, weight gain, & even chronic diseases including diabetes, IBS, memory loss, migraines, depression, & heart disease.

Beans, seeds, grains (including whole grains), corn, lemons, potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, dairy products, eggs, peanuts, peas, & dozens of other food items all contain lectins.
