- Helps Disrupt Gastrointestinal Biofilm: Specialized enzymes in this product help break down the components that form biofilm. Polysaccharides (such as cellulose) are very common constituents of the type of biofilm produced by a wide array of pathogens. This product provides polysaccharide-specific enzymes that help break these constituents down as well as protein- and peptide-specific enzymes that also aid in the disruption of biofilm.
- Supports Degradation of Yeast Cell Walls: Beta-glucans are polysaccharides that can comprise up to 60% of the cell wall of fungal organisms like Candida albicans. Another type of polysaccharide called chitosan can also be found in the cell walls of various fungi. To help disrupt the cell walls of yeast and other fungal organisms, this product includes several enzymes that target and break down or “lyse” these specific components. Lysozyme, an enzyme found in tears, saliva and breast milk, is also included for its unique lysing action on bacterial and yeast cell walls.
- Helps Protect Sensitive Gi Tissues From Irritation: Inflammation of gastrointestinal tissues can result from a variety of factors including toxins produced by intestinal pathogens. This product includes the enzyme Serratia peptidase to help protect sensitive gastrointestinal tissue from irritation and inflammation that can adversely affect tissue health and cause intestinal comfort. Research shows Serratia peptidase significantly degrades biofilm and favorably modulates immune responses.
- Complements Detoxification Protocols: This product is intended to be used with other efforts to help rebalance gastrointestinal microflora. By assisting degradation of biofilm communities that may harbor potentially pathogenic bacteria and yeast, this product can serve as an important dietary adjunct for detoxification agents such as broad-spectrum antibiotics, anti-fungal/anti-parasitic medications or naturally-occurring antimicrobials. This product may be especially appropriate for individuals with a history of prolonged antibiotic use or an imbalance in the ratio of beneficial organisms compared to pathogenic organisms such as Escherichia coli, Candida albicans, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Staphylococcus aureus.
