Isomalto-Oligosaccharide (IMO, prebiotic)
IMO is a natural, certified organic prebiotic fiber, providing low calorie and soluble prebiotic fiber for human digestive health. IMO is non-GMO, sugar-free and gluten-free. When IMO enters the large intestine, it is fermented by the indigenous bacteria, providing fertilization of beneficial microflora. It has been clinically shown to greatly increase the number of indigenous bacteria in the digestive tract. In addition to being Kosher and Halal, our IMO products are FDA GRAS and approved by Health Canada. Clinical studies have shown IMO to cause the least flatulence in comparison to inulin and FOS.*
Bacillus subtilis is a spore forming bacteria that is widely used as a fungicide. The bacteria colonize the root system of the fungus, leaving no room for fungal disease organisms.*
Lactobacillus helvecticus is a probiotic that stimulates the immune and digestive system, controls diarrhea, reduces lactose intolerance and can inhibit unfriendly bacteria.*
Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-systemic and non-pathogenic yeast originally found in the skins of the lychee and mangosteen fruits. This yeast is an important probiotic that can help to recolonize and sustain flora in the large and small intestine, with a remarkable ability to control various forms of diarrhea.*
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a healthy bacteria that produces hydrogen peroxide, lactic acid and other substances that create an acidic, unfriendly environment for harmful organisms.*
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is a lactic acid producing bacterial strain that is known for its ability to survive in the highly acidic conditions of the stomach as well as the intestines.*
Lactobacillus plantarum is a lactic acid producing bacteria that prevents harmful bacteria from attaching to the mucosal lining and competes for the nutrients the bad bacteria need to survive.*
Lactobacillus lactis is a gram-positive bacteria that ferments milk sugar to lactic acid and adds synergistic support to the probiotic blend as a whole.*
Bifidobacterium bifidum naturally inhabits the colon and vagina, and is a very potent probiotic for the balance of microflora in the intestines.*
Digestive Yeast Cleanse
Plusbiotic uses the extremely potent blend of protease (protein digesting), cellulase and hemicellulase (cellulose digesting), glucoamylase and amylase (breaks down sugars), and serrapeptase. These enzymes strip away the Candida's protective protein shell and begin digesting its cellular infrastructure. Plusbiotic contains this powerful intestinal cleanse to assist in the removal of dead yeast and other bad bacteria from the body. This will protect the body from experiencing detox symptoms from toxins typically given off from the elimination of yeast.*
Acid Armor Capsules are a revolutionary new capsule that acts like an enteric coating. Acid Armor are made with cellulose (the main component of veggie caps), and designed with unique polymer properties to slow the capsule opening times once swallowed. These cellulose capsules are a much healthier option than enteric coatings. Enteric coatings use Phthalates which are plastic chemical polymers. These same chemicals are banned in childrens toys, so we wouldn't even think about adding them to any of our products.
Acid Armor capsules are also designed with an extremely low moisture content, which improves the stability of moisture sensitive components within the capsule. Acid Armor capsules have been shown in studies to delay the release of the capsule's contents by an average of 45 minutes. When a product like "Plusbiotic” which uses Acid Armor capsule is taken on an empty stomach, the capsule typically enters and leaves the stomach in 30 minutes or less. This means that the Acid Armor capsule provides ample time for the enzymes to get through the stomach and into the more "enzyme friendly" environment of the intestines.
