Leaky Gut Probiotic
Leaky Gut Probiotic is a high potency (75 billion CFUs per capsule) combination of three probiotic strains, Pediococcus acidilactici, Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus acidophilus is specially formulated to improve gastrointestinal health and restore the barrier function of the gut in individuals affected by leaky gut syndrome.
Pediococcus acidilactici is a probiotic gram positive coccus that is commonly found in fermented vegetables, fermented dairy products and meat. Pediococcus acidilactici is viable at very low pH and easily survive in acidic gastric environment. It is also viable at higher temperatures of up to 65 degrees Celsius. Pediococci suppress growth of pathogenic bacteria and certain parasites via production of lactic acid and natural antibiotics known as pediocins. In addition, Pediococcus acidilactici stimulates mucosal immune response within the intestinal lumen.
Lactobacillus plantarum is a Gram-positive bacterium naturally found in many fermented food products including sauerkraut, pickles, brined olives, Korean kimchi, sourdough, and other fermented plant material, and also some cheeses, fermented sausages, and stockfish. The medicinal properties of L. plantarum include: production of D- and L-isomers of lactic acid feeding beneficial gut bacteria, production of hydrogen peroxide killing pathogenic bacteria, production of enzymes (proteases) degrading soy protein and helping people with soy intolerance, synthesis of amino-acid L-lysine that promotes absorption of calcium and the building of muscle tissue, production of enzymes (proteases) digesting animal proteins such as gelatin and helping people with pancreatic insufficiency.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a species of Lactobacilli which occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract and in many dairy products. The L. acidophilus strain DDS-1 is one of the best characterized probiotic strains in the world. The medicinal properties of L. acidophilus DDS-1 include: production of lactic acid supporting good bacteria in the gut, production of B and K vitamins, prevention of colon cancer, prevention of ‘traveler’s diarrhea’, inhibition of gastric/duodenal ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori, reduction of symptoms of eczema and atopic dermatitis, reduction of serum cholesterol level, fermentation of lactose and reduction of symptoms of lactose intolerance, reduction of intestinal pain.
