are non-digestible fibers that feed the bacteria living in your gut.
However, most prebiotics on the market can feed both harmful and beneficial gut bacteria. As you can see, this is not a good option if you already have an imbalance of the good and bad guys, which is called dysbiosis. You don’t want more of the bad guys; you want more of the good guys.
When you feed the bad bacteria, you can experience or even exacerbate digestive issues like gas, constipation, diarrhea, and / or cramping.
The population of the beneficial bacteria can be easily diminished by
- and other environmental toxins that enter our body through the water we drink, the air we breath.
What if you could count on a prebiotic that feeds
the good guys?
Microbiome Labs has developed a prebiotic that only feeds beneficial bacteria. Those keystone bacteria are Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, and Bifidobacteria
plays an important role in metabolism and has been shown to promote fat loss. Low levels of A. muciniphila have been associated with obesity, diabetes, liver disease, cardiometabolic diseases, and low-grade inflammation.**
can increase the production of butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that can relieve intestinal inflammation. Low levels of F. prausnitzii have been associated with irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, and chronic constipation.**
can also increase butyrate production and promote lean body mass. Low levels of Bifidobacteria have been associated with obesity, diabetes, celiac disease, allergic asthma, dermatitis, IBD, chronic fatigue syndrome, and psoriasis.**
Increasing populations of these protective bacteria is an integral part of reinforcing a healthy gut microbiome. Studies have shown that a more diverse gut microbiome is associated with a stronger immune system and a decreased risk for chronic illness.**
**These Statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
is a cutting-edge Precision Prebiotic™ supplement made up of
- clinically-tested, non-digestible
- Oligosaccharides that can increase microbial diversity and selectively feed beneficial keystone bacteria like Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, Bifidobacteria.
The oligosaccharides are derived from
- non-GMO green and gold kiwi fruit,
- non-GMO corn cob, and
- rBST-free cow’s milk (rBST: recombinant Bovine Somatotrophin is a growth hormone).
The findings of these oligosaccharide studies are quite impressive and have shown that Akkermansia muciniphila population increases by 8,000% in 5 weeks, F. prausnitzii by 100% in 4 weeks, Bifido by 10% in 6 weeks.
Increasing populations of these protective bacteria is an integral part of reinforcing a healthy gut microbiome. Studies have shown that a more diverse gut microbiome is associated with a stronger immune system and a decreased risk for chronic illness.
MegaPreBiotic™ REINFORCES the beneficial microbial changes created by MegaSporeBiotic™ to promote a strong and diverse microbiome.**
