Microbiome Protect by Douglas Laboratories is a combination of clinically studied IgY Max immunoglobulins, LactoSpore probiotic and α-gluco-oligosaccharide prebiotic to support the microbiome of the gastrointestinal tract.
A great tasting, natural vanilla-flavored powder, Microbiome Protect can be easily added to liquids or foods.
- Supports beneficial bacterial growth and balance
- Promotes balanced cytokine production
- Supports mucosal immunity and intestinal permeability
Functions and Mechanism of Action
The gastrointestinal microbiota is a complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tracts of humans. The balance of pathogenic and beneficial bacteria can become dysregulated by numerous influences including infections, food sensitivities, physiological stressors and a microorganism’s metabolism.
Microbiome Protect is a unique combination of strain-specific IgY antibodies, lactic-acid producing Bacillus coagulans, and prebiotic α-gluco-oligosaccharides to support the growth of beneficial bacteria and the mucosal immune response.
IgY Max® is made from immunized egg yolk and extracted using low heat methods. Clinical data suggest that IgY supports microbial balance in the GI tract. IgY Max® contains strain-specific antibodies against 26 human- relevant bacteria to promote mucosal immunity by competing for adhesion with other bacteria in the digestive tract. Preliminary human data also suggests that Zonulin and DAO levels are also changed in a favorable way after 8 weeks of supplementation with IgY Max®.
LactoSpore® is a coagulans (B. Coagulans) spore. Upon activation in the acidic environment of the stomach, it can proliferate in the intestine and produce the favored L (+) form of lactic acid. B. Coagulans is resistant to bile salt in the digestive tract. LactoSpore® supports the homeostasis of the intestinal mucosa and balance by supporting the optimal environment for healthy bacteria to flourish.
BioEcolians® is a ɑlpha-glucooligosaccharide (GOSɑ) obtained by enzymatic synthesis through fermentation. It is composed of glucose units and is non-digestible due to the linkage between the saccharide units and, more specifically, to α(1-2) linkage. BioEcolians® supports the homeostasis of the intestinal mucosa and bacterial balance. Research has indicated that supplementation with BioEcolians can improve digestive comfort, increase Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium strains, and stimulate SCFA and β-defensins production.
