Studies Have Shown Three Key Functions:
Attacks certain bacterial toxins by means of substances produced by the yeast. This includes Toxins A & B associated with Clostridium difficile.
Stimulates production of s-IgA, and IgG, which in turn strengthens the digestive tract defenses to help fight infection.
Releases polyamines to help repair mucous membrane. These polyamines increase the activity of short chain fatty acids and disaccharide enzymes (lactase, maltase, sucrase), which helps to prevent different types of diarrhea. Stimulates the colonic mucosa in growing, multiplying, and repairing of intestinal cells.
Studies have shown it may be effective against parasites, candida albicans, cholera, salmonella, C-difficile, IBS, crohn’s disease, IBS, traveler’s diarrhea, and antibiotic associated diarrhea.
