Hello, my name is Will and I am the founder of Intestinal Fortitude. I woke up one morning back in 2012 sick as a dog. Based on the symptoms, and the all-you-can-eat Crab Leg dinner from the night before, I thought I had food poisoning. Unfortunately, the symptoms persisted for weeks. A trip to the doctor and a short round of antibiotics got me feeling better for a few days, but then it started again. Another trip to the same doctor and a longer round of antibiotics really did the trick... for a few days.
At this point I was referred to a Gastrointestinal (GI) specialist who listened to my plight and promptly informed me that I most likely had Ulcerative Colitis (UC). WTF? I swallowed a pill-cam and wore a "sweet" fanny pack contraption to work the next day. The results? Inconclusive! So, I signed up for my first ever colonoscopy. The results? I didn't have UC, I had Crohn's disease. Double WTF? The GI doc put me on Prednisone and sulfasalazine, and began to lay out my options for long-term medication. Mind you, I'm in my mid-30's at this point and am not excited about 60+ years of drugs. So, I politely declined and set about researching alternative methods with which to deal with this disease.
I read every blog, joined every IBD related facebook group I could find, Googled every term I could think of. If someone mentioned what had helped them, I wrote it down. Then I went back to Google and looked to see if there were any scientific studies behind these ingredients. I bought and tried dozens of individual supplements. There were so many bottles on my bathroom sink that there was barely room for my toothbrush. Hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation brought me to the "blend" that has given me several years of almost symptom-free living.
The more I searched and the more I learned, the more I grew concerned with the quality and trustworthiness of the supplements on the market. I knew I'd potentially be taking these for the rest of my life, and I could already see how expensive that was going to be. I knew that the only way that I could keep the quality up and the price down was to start my own company.
I teamed up with a Doctor of Pharmacology to “tweak” my blends for professional manufacturing. I searched for and interviewed many different potential manufacturing partners. (Some of these conversations let me know that I was 100% right to be concerned about the supplement industry). And then AI-5, GLR-6, and PRO-B11 were born! Like a spark of Divine light, the name Intestinal Fortitude just popped into my head and so it began... now you get to benefit from that fateful decision.
This product is AMAZING 🤩 After eating any kind of food I had a lot of stomach pain and my doctor prescribed a colonoscopy at an early age. Approximately about a month of taking Pro-B11 I had a colonoscopy and an MRI with great results, and honestly I DO NOT have any stomach pain and bloating like before. These products are fabulous. I ordered my products directly from this seller because the prices are better with a promotion than the prices on Amazon. A+++
I am only 12 hours out from taking my first dose. This morning to my surprise, I could drink my morning coffee without the pain/cramping and I did not have to rush to the bathroom. So far, so good. I love the feeling of relief! I will start the AI-5 Inflammatory supplements today too. Happy healing everyone! 👍🏻
Very good product. Helps balance your digestive system.
Too bad husband must depend on these everyday but he feels they do help.
From everything I heard about the product. Clears blotching, relieves joint pain, among a host of other remedies, I'm willing to step out in faith and give it 5 stars & an extra star to boot. G. Anderson
This absolutely stops the pain of diverticulitis and gastritis (and GERD) . It is truly effective! Saved my life!!!!! I was in so much pain and i'm not anymore..before even eating a bland diet didn't work, but THIS does!!! :)
I have had severe stomach problems for a couple of years, had an ERCP, then several bouts of pancreatitis. My stomach had to then go through another stomach surgery completely changing the ‘route’ of my stomach because I lost so much weight so fast I ended up with SMASYNDROME, my stomach won’t heal, my nausea is constant all of the time and it just hurts bc my stomach is full of ulcers. I’ve been on protonix for a couple years, not helping at all. I’m trying to go more holistic and I saw these and just had to try something else, I’m SO glad I did, it’s still a struggle but I’ve only had it for a few days and have already had more relief than ANYTHING I’ve tried or medication I’ve tried, would highly recommend!
This might be a bit graphic, but I share in hopes of helping others. My husband has had severe abdominal cramping, bloating and watery diarrhea 8-10x daily for the past 9 months. He tried every antibiotic, every stool exam, every supplement and probiotic... We happened to stumble across this product on Amazon. Catchy label claiming "gut lining repair". All natural ingredients. I honestly thought it would be a waste of money BUT.... His first pill was taken at bed time. He didn't have a bowel movement during the night and had a soft BM in the morning, versus watery/yellow. He took another pill before bed the next night. This morning, solid BM and NO bloating or cramping. He has been through hell for so long and this was such a simple fix! The name says it all and IT WORKS!!! We couldn't be happier with the results. Far exceeded expectations and would definitely recommend to anyone that needs to soothe/heal their GI tract.
When I used this the first time under guidance from a medical professional I gave up daily and gluten to heal leaky gut. I think it did a good job healing my gut, but think I have to do it again after a couple of years because I went right back to my bad eating habits.
I'm loving my Gut again.. This is a great Supplement
Happy I found this.
Antes de encontrar este producto , estaba teniendo mucho cólico antes de evacuar y me sentía muy adolorida en el área del abdomen. Anteriormente había estado sangrando cuando evacuaba ,gracias a un medicamento para el dolor , que me había dado el doctor para dolor de las piedras en los riñones. Bueno pues empecé a tomar estas pastillas por que vi todo los buenos reviews que tenía. Ala semana de estarlos tomando note que me sentía menos inflamada y el dolor había desaparecido. Y pues los sigo tomando por que quiero que me sigan ayudando.
It does what it says it does I believe the dosage can be more than what was suggested so it's good to get a doctor's take on taking more then the suggested use, there is more that can be considered for gut repair as well although this is a great start for anyone who wants bring their gut health up
I considered buying all the different components of this product from iHerb which would have been cheaper but I thought I'd end up taking too many different tablets a day hence I decided to buy GLR-6. I have also made changes to my diet which have helped greatly.
