The Healer + Pro: Probiotic with Immune Essentials
The Healer + Pro is a spore-based, broad-spectrum probiotic formula designed to promote a healthy gut micro ora, protect mucosal integrity, and relieve small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Each capsule provides key Bacillus spore- forming probiotic strains that remain in a dormant protective state in the harsh gastrointestinal environment yet become active on target to colonize and recondition the gut. Uniquely included in this formula are serum-derived bovine immunoglobulins that bind to microbes and toxins that are common in SIBO, for elimination.
SIBO is a condition that occurs when there is an overabundance of commensal bacteria from the colon present in the small intestine. SIBO is largely overlooked and more prevalent than previously thought. The health of the small intestines relies on balanced microbiota, and probiotics and immunoglobulins can contribute to that balance by having a positive influence on the intestinal environment, including pH, organism diversity, and immune signaling. SIBO remains an area of research, but it is understood that dysbiosis and motility are key components. Such dysbiosis of the small intestine can be attributable to low stomach acid, medications, or alcohol consumption.
Probiotics have been extensively studied and are characterized as having broad GI and immune benefits, including increasing the population of healthy bacteria following microflora imbalance; supporting healthy bowel function; increasing the production of short-chain fatty acids, which provide energy to the cells of the intestinal lining; strengthening the gut-immune barrier by promoting a healthy gut mucosa; aiding in the digestion of compounds like lactose and casein; and enhancing detoxification of harmful compounds.
Probiotics are live organisms and must be shelf stable through the expiration date, so they can be precisely delivered to the intestinal tract to have maximum benefit. Bacillus spores can transition between a dormant and an active form, depending on the environment. Bacillus spores remain dormant in harsh environments until they reach more favorable environments like the human gastrointestinal tract. In its dormant spore form, Bacillus surrounds itself with an endospore, which is a tough, natural outer shell that protects it from light, heat, pressure, acid, lack of oxygen, and other environmental factors. Bacillus changes into its active form in the large intestine to colonize the gut to encourage microbial diversity of commensal gut bacteria. In its active form, Bacillus can increase microbial diversity by changing the pH, and increasing the production of short-chain fatty acids. The combination of specific strains, particularly Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus clausii, and Bacillus subtilis, relieve symptoms for common GI complaints and reinforce healthy gut function.
The discovery that the gut barrier plays a key role in immune health fueled the search to strengthen it. Research has shown that the binding capabilities of immunoglobulins have a positive effect on gut barrier function. In the search for innovative ways to improve microbiome diversity, we have combined our blend of spore-forming probiotics alongside immunoglobulins uniquely shown to bind to bacteria and toxins, driving immune response. IgG helps to maintain a healthy intestinal immune system by binding a broad range of microbes and toxins within the gut lumen. As these unwanted triggers are removed, it resets healthy immune tolerance and builds a stronger barrier to the external environment in the gut. Serum-derived bovine immunoglobulins have the highest IgG concentration available for GI and immune challenges where allergens are a significant concern.
Bacillus coagulans has been shown to increase the commensal GI microbiota. Supplementation of 1 billion CFU daily for 28 days with B. coagulans significantly increased levels of the commensal microbe F. prausnitzii from baseline compared to placebo, as well as increased Bacillus spp. in fecal samples of adults over 65. Bacillus coagulans has also been shown to relieve GI discomfort and improve stool consistency. Bacillus coagulans given once a day for eight weeks showed reduced daily bowel movements and GI symptoms. B. coagulans also significantly improved bowel movements in healthy adults with occasional constipation, as well as decreased abdominal discomfort.
B. clausii is commonly used as a probiotic to promote balance in the microbiome and has showed promising results in individuals with SIBO specifically. B. clausii has demonstrated significant effectiveness in adults with acute diarrhea. B. clausii has also shown to significantly reduce duration of occasional diarrhea and decreased stool frequency in children.
Bacillus subtilis has been shown to relieve GI distress in patients. Bacillus subtilis supplementation of 1-3 billion CFU alongside motility stimulating agents was shown effective for relief of GI symptoms at four weeks.
Serum-derived bovine immunoglobulins
Probiotics are a natural choice for supporting beneficial bacteria in the gut, but supplementation to eliminate unwanted microbes should also be considered. Within the gut barrier, researchers found that the binding capabilities of immunoglobulins have a positive effect on gut barrier function in vitro. Broad-spectrum binding capabilities demonstrate the positive influence of serum-derived bovine immunoglobulins. This binding and elimination decreases microbe and toxin encounters by the immune system and resets immune tolerance.
