What are Probiotics Anyway?
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines probiotics as: "Live
microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health
benefit on the host." (WHO, 2001). Simply stated, they are beneficial microbes
similar to what many refer to as "friendly" bacteria found in your body's
digestive system. Probiotics have had a long history of human use in various
cultures, through consumption of cultured or fermented foods from dairy products
and different vegetables. Colonization of the gut with a healthy bacterial
profile, begins in the neonatal period, shortly after birth and is one of the
functional benefits of breast feeding. This "symbiosis" that is created between
a healthy microflora of the gut, and health benefits to the individual that
range from optimal digestive function to supporting a healthy immunity.*
The Immune/Gut Connection
Did you know that over 70 percent of the immune system's cells reside lining
the entire digestive tract? Probiotics have been shown to support how the major
arms of the immune system (innate and acquired immunity) respond to day-to-day
challenges. Research has demonstrated that an optimized gut microbiota and
microbial environment may help maintain the normal functioning of the immune system by allowing it to amplify
or mute responses accordingly.
The Need for Probiotics
We are living at a time when so many factors are conspiring to disrupt or
disturb your flora and balance of healthy intestinal microorganisms. Some of the
factors that can disrupt this intestinal flora and environment include:
- Poor diet
- Hormonal changes
- Sudden changes in diet or drinking water
Why Purity Products' Probiotic 8-in-1 Super Formula – Featuring the "Magnificent 8"?
More than 20 different probiotic species and strains have been used in
dietary supplements. However, the "Magnificent 8" represent 8 different types/strains of
probiotics were not chosen at random. These 8 functional probiotics were
included in the formula for their impressive scientific evidence of having
complementary benefits that work in concert to optimize health:
Lactobacillus rhamnosus: Going well "beyond the gut" - has been shown to support
healthy digestive function and normal bowel "transit time" in both children and
adults. In addition, research suggests it may support healthy respiratory
function, skin integrity and support female health.
Bacillus subtilis: Supports Bone health & Body composition - In addition to
being a very resilient probiotic due to its spore forming exterior, it has been
shown influence not only digestive health, but also improve vitamin K production
within the gut, and in animal models has supported bone health as well. Also,
in another animal study in pigs, the addition of B. subtilis reduced fat gain,
improved nutrient assimilation and increased lean body mass (muscle and bone
Bifodobacterium lactis: Immune system support, maintains Respiratory function
and Quality of life – researchers have recently shown impressive benefits in a
human study where "seasonal" immune system function, skin and respiratory
comfort was supported in only 8 weeks compared to placebo. Another study in 198
college students over 12 weeks demonstrated benefits in upper respiratory
function and comfort, with a combination of B. lactis and L. rhamnosus (two
species found in this very formula)
Bifidobacterium longum: Your intestinal "Mr. Clean" - These probiotics may
promote and support the gut and mucosal immune barrier defense by increasing IgA
production (the neutralizing mucosa-associated antibody). B. longum is one
species that appeared to be associated with higher weight loss in during caloric
restriction and exercise initial research.
Lactobacillus paracasei: From the gut--to blood lipid and carbohydrate
metabolism--to healthy joint/connective tissue - Studies
in humans have shown a potential relationship between already normal blood sugar concentrations
and metabolic health and the number of colonies of L. paracasei in gut flora.
This species of probiotics may support healthy joint cartilage in a mouse model.
Lactobacillus plantarum: Cardio-metabolic benefits and Quality of life - L. plantarum has been shown to readily survive
the harsh upper GI tract and colonize in the colon in both animal models and
human studies. Elderly individuals supplemented with this species were found to
improve quality of life, nutrient status and enhanced intestinal transit time.
This powerhouse probiotic player also has the potential to enhance body
composition (muscle to body fat ratio) due to nutrient partitioning qualities.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii (Lynside® ProSCB): The functional,
healthy probiotic "yeast" - This is a probiotic yeast (not a bacterial organism)
is documented to interact with intestinal flora to maintain and optimize healthy
gut function and microbial balance. S. boulardii is unique in that it does not
colonize the intestinal tract, and typically cleared within 2 – 5 days from
discontinuation. S. boulardii activates secreation of important immune factors
essential for normal cell growth.
Plus -- Tegricel™: Bioactive Immune Peptide Fractions – The non-probiotic "supporting
actor" - Tegricel is a specially filtered, immunoglobulin-rich nutritional
extract of bovine colostrum whey. It was developed to provide bioactive
compounds that play critical roles in supporting both the immune and tissue
health responses. These critical bioactives found in Tegricel include:
- Broad-range Immunoglobulins (supporting normally functioning Antibodies)
- Proline-rich Peptide (PRP) (Immune support, and healthy brain function)
- Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (normal Cell and tissue health)
- Transforming Growth Factor-A2 (Cell protection, Immune support)
- Sialic Acid (maintains normal Immune modulation, Prebiotic)
- Nucleotides (supports normal Immune modulation, Healthy aging and cell function)
The gut mucosa (cellular lining of the gastrointestinal tract) is under a
constant state of turnover where cells age, and must be replaced with new,
healthy cells. These properties of enhanced mucosal immune support make
Tegricel an ideal supportive, bioactive ingredient to round out the "Magnificent
8" probiotic species. *
Purity Products' Probiotic SuperFormula is like a systems optimizer
for the gut and immune system which empower your cells and rejuvenate health throughout your entire body.*
8-in-1 Probiotic Formula Stability
The probiotic strains in the Purity's Probiotic 8-in-1 Super Formula were
selected by our renowned physician formulator based on the strength of the best
available scientific evidence in the area of probiotic and gut microbial flora.
The majority of clinical research demonstrating benefit from probiotic
consumption utilized product that averaged between 2 billion and 8 billion CFU
(colony forming units) of active probiotic strains at the time of manufacture.
Moreover, the versatile dosing allows the consumer enough versatility to ramp up
dosing during the initial stages of supplementation, or as needed for times of
occasional digestive stress.*
Also, the great majority of these clinical studies, with positive findings on
various health parameters, kept product at room temperature without requiring
refrigeration. However, refrigeration is optional and it may improve the
viability and stability further. The strains in Purity's Probiotic 8-in-1 Super
Formula are known to be resilient to harsh environments such as the acidic
stomach and bile-rich small intestines.
Probiotics promote comprehensive support for healthy intestinal flora, while
supporting healthy GI and Immune function, healthy digestion, absorption of key
micronutrient vitamins, nutritional compounds, energy levels and more.* Tegricel
was included as a probiotic "amplifier." It is a bioactive immune peptide
fraction --- a non-probiotic "supporting actor" that may improve the tissue
integrity and health of the cells that line the entire GI tract. As such,
Tegricel may enhance the already impressive, (and growing) potential benefits
for probiotics via other mechanisms that support healthy, optimally functional
