What is the Intestinal Lining?
The mucosa, or lining, of the digestive tract spans all the way from the esophagus to the colon. It serves as a place for food breakdown and nutrient absorption to take place. This delicate lining is semipermeable; ideally, this membrane allows nutrients into the bloodstream and keeps toxins, pathogens, and undigested food out.
The Importance of a Healthy Intestinal Lining
The intestinal lining serves many functions. Three of the most critical are:
1) Helps to continue the digestion process after the food you consumed leaves the stomach.
2) Assists with the absorption of nutrients from food; this part of the digestion process occurs in the small intestine after food leaves the stomach.
3) Protects the body from unwanted digestive contents entering the bloodstream.
The intestinal lining is like the skin, in that it sloughs off a layer of cells naturally every 3-5 days and produces new cells to keep the lining semipermeable. To keep new cells continually growing, the amino acid L-glutamine is the primary fuel for this process.ǂ When functioning properly, the body converts L-glutamine into N-acetyl D-glucosamine, an amino sugar found in all tissues of the body. Much of the intestinal lining is composed of N-acetyl D-glucosamine, which helps hold the cells of the intestinal lining together.ǂ
