Low histamine probiotic formulation
When the gut ecology gets off kilter, one can develop an intolerance to histamine. Histamines are nitrogen compounds that trigger an immune reaction.
Normally, the body breaks down histamines thanks to dioxide oxidase (DAO) and other amine oxidase enzymes. However, sometimes the body can’t produce enough DAO enzymes to keep up with histamine production and a histamine intolerance develops.
Histamine intolerance can be signaled by increased inflammation, congestion, rashes and other discomforts.
Once you’ve regained a healthy gut ecology, histamine intolerance usually diminishes. But until then, it’s better to avoid foods like cheese and alcohol that have histamines in them.
Certain strains of probiotic bacteria – like Lactobacillus casei, reuteri and bulgaricus – also produce histamines. These three probiotics are commonly found in probiotic formulations and fermented foods.
Restoring a healthy gut ecology while struggling with a histamine intolerance is a tall order. So we’ve made sure that the strains included in this formula are either histamine-neutral or histamine-degrading. That means you won’t have to worry about increasing your clients’ exposure to histamines with the probiotics they’re taking.
But histamines aren’t the only irritant we’ve kept out of this formula …
No D-Lactate acidosis
Lactobacillus acidophilus can work wonders in the gut by producing lactic acid. But for some, this can become a problem.
Lactate, derived from lactic acid, comes in two isomeric forms, d-lactate and l-lactate. Most of us have the capacity to metabolize both forms to some extent and turn it into pyruvic acid.
But for various reasons, some people can’t metabolize d-lactate effectively enough to keep up the d-lactate produced by gut bacteria. As a result, the d-lactate can build up in the body and cause d-lactate acidosis.
If this is a concern for your clients, you’ll love GutPro® Probiotic Capsules. We’ve kept any probiotic strains associated with d-lactate acidosis out of our formula.
Yes, we do include strains like Lactobacillus plantarum, which can produce d-lactate under certain conditions. But here’s what we’ve learned in our extensive research:
This strain primarily produces l-lactate. Only under certain conditions does L. plantarum produce d-lactate. Better yet, L. plantarum may even help with acidosis by helping the body maintain a lactate equilibrium. And unlike L. acidophilus, L. plantarum is transient. It doesn’t take up residence in the gut and shift the ecosystem that dramatically.
Because of the powerful health benefits associated with this strain, we decided to keep it in the formula. Based on our research and years of customer satisfaction, we’re confident it does not contribute to d-lactate acidosis.
(Note, GutPro® Infant has no L. plantarum in its formula)
GutPro® Capsules can keep your body’s d-lactate in balance. But that’s not the only way this formula is designed for your patients…
No spore-producing bacteria or streptococcus thermophilus
For people concerned about spore-producing Bacillus bacteria or Streptococcus thermophilus (e.g. soil bacteria), we’ve made sure to keep these strains out as well.
While the research is still ongoing about the impact these strains have on our systems, we believe that quite often, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. We decided to play it safe and keep this formula simple and easy on the most sensitive bodies.
But of course, it’s not just the probiotic strains you need to worry about. Most probiotics supplements are only 10% to 20% probiotics and 80% to 90% something else…
No prebiotics and free of common allergens
- There are no excipients like silica or magnesium stearate in our GutPro® Capsules.
- Again, all you will find is cellulose, the most benign filler that’s required for the encapsulation process yet satisfies the requirements of the most demanding customers.
- Nor are there any prebiotics like inulin, maltodextrin or FOS.
And, to make sure that this formula works for everyone – it’s free of common allergens! Every strain we use is grown on a dairy-free, soy-free, non-GMO vegetarian culture.
8 beneficial probiotic strains, proven by clinical research
Gutpro® gives you a super team of eight clinically-proven probiotic bacteria* . . .
Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus salivarius, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium lactis.
While we believe that no single strain in particular is the magic bullet for specific ailments and conditions – as strains should work together as they do in a healthy digestive system and the idea is to heal the overall gut first – the research on these eight strains is extensive . . . the potential health benefits enormous.*
All of these probiotic strains seem to play a role when it comes to comfortable, healthy digestion.*
