Phage or Bacteriophages are microscopic proteins that target and devour certain harmful bacteria.* When Floraphage dismantles bad bacteria within the gut, nutrients are released turning bad bacteria in the upper GI tract into high-quality food for good bacteria. Based on lab testing with several popular probiotic supplements, this remarkable prebiotic was able to increase the growth rate of supplemented probiotics by 24x compared to control.* Avoid uncomfortable symptoms such as gas and bloating that come along with standard prebiotics and improve the performance of any probiotic formula.*
The human digestive tract contains trillions of microorganisms that constantly compete for space and nutrients. This system can be highly susceptible to attacks from harmful bacteria, which can result in digestive discomfort and a weakened immune system. It is therefore important for beneficial bacteria to outperform these harmful bacteria so that proper intestinal balance and overall good health can be achieved. Unfortunately the opposite can sometimes occur, in which aggressive strains of harmful bacteria outgrow and consume more resources than the beneficial bacteria. This phenomenon can be associated with poor health, abdominal discomfort, and bacterial infections. To combat these intestinal imbalances and their damaging effects, Floraphage has been developed to support the restoration and maintenance of the highly sensitive digestive ecosystem.
Floraphage was designed to support the proliferation of beneficial bacteria throughout the gastrointestinal tract in order to promote optimal digestive and immune health. Floraphage was tested in conjunction with four popular probiotic supplements to determine its ability to increase the growth rate for each respective product. The graph on the right demonstrates the average increase in CFU activity, the measurement of probiotic bacteria growth, for the four products was 2400%, versus control (growth without the use of Floraphage). Floraphage is an excellent product to take in conjunction with a probiotic to maximize the benefits of supplemented beneficial bacteria. It is also helpful for those that do not take probiotics in order to maximize indigenous bacteria growth.
Floraphage is a bacteriophage (or phage), which is a microscopic protein that can target and destroy one particular type of bacteria. Floraphage is selectively-antimicrobial, specifically attaching to only harmful bacteria. Once a phage has attached itself, these “bad” bacteria essentially burst open, releasing more phage and nutrients, known as prebiotics, for our good bacteria to feed on. Floraphage can only attach itself to harmful bacteria, and can never enter or harm good bacteria or human cells.
Phages are everywhere, in our food, in the water we drink, on and in our bodies, and pretty much anywhere else imaginable. They are actually the most abundant naturally occurring organisms on earth. Phages have been safely used for over 90 years in the food supply and as a therapy for antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. Floraphage is the first dietary supplement formula to utilize these amazing microscopic proteins.
Floraphage specifically targets bad bacteria and destroys their cell wall, releasing nutrients that provide good bacteria with the food and space that are needed for substantial growth in the digestive tract. In doing so, Floraphage reverses the growth pattern of certain bad bacteria and allows good bacteria to proliferate in their place.
Since Floraphage forces the release of nutrients from bad bacteria, it inherently acts as a two-phase super-prebiotic. During the first phase, Floraphage selectively attacks certain bacteria, creating space along the intestinal wall. The second phase occurs organically when these bacteria burst open and release prebiotic nutrients. Prebiotics help beneficial bacteria grow faster than harmful bacteria. More specifically, prebiotics are natural sources of nutrients that provide benefit by stimulating the growth and activity of good bacteria in the digestive tract. Prebiotic supplements have historically been made up of some type of fiber or sugar, which have been known to lead to gas and bloating. Floraphage is not comprised of fiber or sugars, so the potential for digestive distress is eliminated while providing its super-prebiotic benefits.
Floraphage represents a tiny fraction of the total phages contained in the body, as the gut is a natural habitat for bacteria and phages. Floraphage does not contain genetic elements that are harmful to humans. Furthermore, Floraphage is not constructed in a manner that would enable it to negatively impact any beneficial bacteria. Therefore, Floraphage presents no harm to the natural microbial flora of the intestine. In addition, Floraphage has GRAS status with the FDA.
