ProbioCharge - 30 Billion CFU
Good health begins with the health of your gut. If your gut is damaged or you have an abundance of pathogenic microorganisms it is impossible to be healthy. The gut must be addressed daily in order for one to live a lifestyle that builds health.
Imbalances in the intestinal terrain may lead to or contribute to the propagation of yeast overgrowth, parasites, and harmful bacterial growth. Introducing the right type of probiotic strains of microorganisms on a daily basis is a powerful way to regulate your gut health. This daily practice will improve your immune system, digestive system and help improve hormonal and brain health (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
Your Gut is Alive:
There is thought to be about 500 different species of microrganisms within the gut. Many of the microorganisms in the human gut have yet to be characterized. The majority of the gut is made up of different forms of bacteria but there are also many forms of yeasts, single celled eukaryotes, helminth parasites and various different viruses.
Communities of microorganisms are located in every exposed area and cavity of the body. However, the gut provides a dark, moist environment with continuous supply of nutrition and so it is the optimal breeding ground for microbial life.
Microbial cells make up anywhere from three to six pounds of weight within the individual. The vast majority of these are beneficial and help metabolize food particles and form highly absorbable nutrients for the person to digest.
The Importance of Progenic Microbes:
This internal ecosystem is dependent upon certain beneficial species being widespread and in control. These symbiotic microbes are progenic in that they support life.
These organisms provide a protective barrier that guards the intestinal wall against pathogenic bacteria, parasites, fungi, viruses and environmental toxins. These organisms also create anti-microbial substances that destroy pathogenic organisms. They are very powerful, natural antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals.
The health of the body and mind are especially dependent upon the health of the human microbiome. The ideal ratio of progenic to pathogenic microbes is thought to be 85:15.
Most Americans today have this ratio flipped in favor of the antagonistic microbial communities. This is called dysbiosis or bad bacterial balance. Dysbiotic conditions are due to the influence of environmental toxins that wipe out progenic species and create an environment conducive to parasitic growth.
ProbioCharge is an ideal combination of ingredients for individuals seeking a well-rounded supplement to address intestinal ecology, cellular health, and immunity. It features well-researched probiotic strains; Saccharomyces boulardii, a non-pathogenic yeast; and arabinogalactan, a prebiotic. By combining these ingredients, the individual benefits of each component can be complemented by the mechanisms of the others.*
Research Support for ProbioCharge:
Bifidobacterium lactis HN019:
Discovered in 1899, B lactis plays a key role in the human microflora throughout a person’s life. Researchers have identified strain HN019 as having excellent probiotic potential based upon its ability to survive the transit through the human gastrointestinal tract, adhere to epithelial cells and proliferate (6).
B lactis HN019 has been extensively studied, and its safety and effectiveness is well-accepted (7, 8). To assess the impact of B lactis HN019 supplementation on whole-gut transit time in adults, 100 subjects were given daily doses for 14 days of 17.2 billion colony forming units (CFU), 1.8 billion CFU, or placebo.
Decreases in mean whole-gut transit time over the 14-day study period were statistically significant in the high-dose group and the low-dose group, but not in the placebo group (8). This level of dosing also supported other parameters of healthy GI function, as were self-reported by patient survey (8). In another study of preschool-age children, supplementing milk for one year with 1.9 x 10 CFU per day B lactis HN019 and 2.4 g/day of prebiotic oligosaccharides supported both healthy iron status and weight gain (9).
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled human dietary intervention study in elderly subjects (>60 yrs.), supplementary B lactis HN019 resulted in statistically significant increases in the beneficial organisms bifidobacteria and lactobacilli (10).
Lactobacillus Acidophilus La-14:
This common inhabitant of the human mouth, intestinal tract, and vagina is also found in some traditional fermented milks (e.g., kefir) and is widely used in probiotic foods and supplements. It has a history of safe human consumption. The L acidophilus La-14 strain is of human origin and has been identified as a type A1 L acidophilus. L acidophilus shows excellent adhesion to human epithelial cell-lines (11, 12).
Lactobacillus Plantarum Lp-115:
This bacteria was isolated from plant material and is abundantly present in lactic acid-fermented foods, such as olives and sauerkraut. In vitro studies have shown that L plantarum strain Lp-115 has excellent adhesion to epithelial cell lines (13). In addition, L plantarum is resistant to low pH conditions and survives the presence of bile at duodenal concentrations (13,14).
Bifidobacterium longum B1-05:
The B longum Bl-05 strain is well-accepted as safe for human consumption. B longum is resistant to low pH and bile salts and is well-suited to the intestinal environment (14).
