Platform GI Foundations Renew Daily Complete features a diverse blend of HOWARU® and FloraFIT ® probiotic strains to support a healthy gut microbiome. Each strain is well-researched and identity-verified and has been genetically characterized and properly classified for your safety and assurance. These strains were not only selected for their health benefits and complementary actions but also for their viability and stability. To protect the bacteria from light and moisture, opaque and foil-lined packaging is utilized for both formulas.
- Supports a Healthy Microbiome
- Replenishes Good Bacteria in the Gut
- Supports the Natural Immune Response
- Supports Lactose Digestion
- Supports Bowel Regularity
Featured Strains: Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™ and Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™
Genetic Testing, Acid and Bile Tolerance, Adhesion
The lactic acid-producing strains in these formulas have a history of safe consumption and, based on testing, have excellent probiotic potential. Each bacterium has been genetically characterized and properly classified by independent labs. The organisms have demonstrated tolerance to low pH conditions (hydrochloric acid and pepsin at pH3 for one hour at 37°C), tolerance to bile at concentrations existing in the duodenum, and the ability to adhere to human epithelial cell lines (Caco-2 and HT-29). Adhesion is thought to be an important factor affecting these bacteria’s length of time in the intestines, their ability to modulate immune function, and their ability to take up intestinal “real estate” in competition with other organisms.
Many of the strains have had additional studies performed, which include testing for the following:
Competitive Inhibition – The ability of probiotics to maintain a healthy microbial balance in the gut is unquestionably important to its usefulness. Probiotics produce inhibitory compounds that limit the growth of other organisms, they compete with other organisms for adhesion sites and nutrients, and they inhibit the production of toxins, among other actions.*
Cytokine and Immune Modulation – Microbiota are key elements in the body’s defense system. Cytokines regulate immune system function, the included strains have demonstrated the ability to upregulate or downregulate various cytokines.*
Antibiotic Resistance – Antibiotic susceptibility patterns are an important means of indicating the potential of an organism to be readily inactivated by antibiotics used in human therapy. Importantly, acquired antibiotic resistance or antibiotic resistance transfer have not been detected in any of these strains.*
