Probiotics-Therapy for Overall Health

Good Gut Solution interviewed Kiran Krishnan this week on all the latest research and findings on the Microbiome.

Kiran Krishnan, Microbiologist

Kiran Krishnan is a Microbiologist & Chief Scientific Officer of Microbiome Labs. Kiran is a frequent lecturer on the Human Microbiome at Medical and Nutrition Conferences worldwide. He is currently involved in 4 clinical trials on probiotics and how they relate to overall health.

Over the last 12 years Kiran has been focused on the study of the Human Microbiome.

I was grateful to have the chance to talk with Kiran about his latest research and ask him some important questions about his current understanding of the microbiome.

We have a lot of new information that we’ll be sharing  with you over the next coming weeks.

What are the newest findings on the Human Microbiome?

As you know, there are trillions of bacteria living in your gut.  Most of these trillion microorganisms have been there practically from the day you were born. What you may not know, however, is exactly how they have a profound effect on your health.

When your gut is out of order, it is a primary cause of many non-infectious diseases such as autoimmunity, allergies, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. ​​​​​​​

  • 100 trillion microorganisms occupy your gut
  • 99% of reactions for human function are controlled by your gut. 
  • 80% of your immune tissue is found in the gastrointestinal tract.

Overwhelming scientific evidence illustrates the critical role these microbes play in both the function and dysfunction of the immune system and overall well being.

We asked Kiran why probiotics are such an important therapy for overall health. Here’s what he had to say.

Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton

Ross Pelton brands himself as ‘The Natural Pharmacist’.

Besides being a pharmacist, he also has a Ph.D. in pscyhology. He is also certified as a clinical nutritionist. He has authored 10 books to date.

American Druggist Magazine has named him as one of the the top 50 most influential pharmacists in the USA because of his educational contribution in the field of complementary medicine.

Today Ross explains how beneficial probiotics are, particularly the high quality, unique brand, Dr Ohhira’s Formulas.

Ross explains how Dr. Ohhira was the first to develop a multi-strain probiotic.

Dr. Ohhira uses 12 individual strains of probiotic bacteria. A healthier microbiome will have different types of good bacteria. The more strains you have in your gut the more benefits you will receive.

What is Different about Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics?

These probiotics are a complete Microbiome System.

What does this mean?

Well, before you even take the probiotics, they are fermenting for three to five years. During the fermentation process the bacteria are already working.

This is because they are housed in large fermentation vats.

During this three or five year fermentation process the bacteria are fed over 90 different types of organic food which are shredded and added to the vats.

This is what we call the probiotic food supply.

Dr. Ohhira’s Fermentation process actually feeds the bacteria.

In essence, Dr. Ohhira created an external system which mimics the gastrointestinal system of humans.

The bacteria strains are busy digesting during the fermentation process.

Once they are done digesting they produce a viable end product called post biotic metabolites.

This is the real secret to why Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics are more potent than others.

They have been working for 3 years or 5 years, depending on whether it’s the Original or Professional Formula..

The bacteria are also growing during this fermentation process for 3 or 5 years.

So, not only are you getting probiotics strains in each dose of probiotic but you are receiving a prebiotic food supply and a multitude of post biotic metabolites.

Think of the bacteria produced as 100’s of thousand of compounds, aka Post Biotic Metabolites.  

In the ‘Mind-Gut Connection’ Book by Dr. Emeran Mayer, he states “the vast number of bacteria in your tract will transform food into 100’s of thousands of metabolites.”

 

What is the work that your Probiotics do?

  • Deliver nutrients
  • Deliver immune regulating compounds
  • Regulate ph balance
  • Control absorption of nutrients

Most probiotics are just the bacteria strains, much like a bacteria starter kit.

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are different because they make changes in your microbiome – we call this Rapid Microbiome Restoration –  because these probiotics are already working.

Glutathione Increasing Probiotics

Probiotics Can Increase Glutathione

Glutathione molecule

Our gut plays a huge role in detoxification. Learning more about the human microbiome and about all the probiotic strains that help support good health, can be very confusing and difficult to see the big picture.

Let’s take a look at the big picture and start off with the importance of antioxidants and the role they play in maintaining our good health. Did you know that they are made in every cell in our bodies, all the time …. and trillions of them?

The production of antioxidants is the primary way to reduce free radicals activity.

One very important antioxidant is glutathione. It’s one of those antioxidants that effects everything from top to bottom, and it has an important function of protecting our DNA. When there is damage to our DNA it may increase our risk for all kinds of diseases.

Unfortunately there are many factors, including medications, that reduce our natural glutathione reserve. What are they? … beer, … wine …. actually, any alcohol. Even though it’s used so commonly for pain relief, acetaminophen is another culprit.

Scientists have identified a particular probiotic strain that naturally boosts glutathione. We know that it depletes quickly because when we really challenge our bodies this is the way the ‘cellular trash’ gets removed.

This probiotic strain is called Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 and sometimes abbreviated in scientific literature as “L. Fermentum ME-3.” ME-3 refers to the strain which is a relatively new discovered probiotic strain.

Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 is now patented because of it’s unique ability to increase glutathione levels.

The History behind Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3

Dr Marika Mikelsaar discovered Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 probiotic strain that stimulates glutathione growthIt was first isolated in 1995 by Dr Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD & her associates doing research at the University of Tartu, in Estonia. In 2007 Dr Marika Mikelsaar won an award for her work as a microbiologist in 2007.

She also received the European Union award for the actual discovery of L. fermentum ME-3.

Before her discovery she was involved with the Russian Space Program and was studying the intestinal microflora of Russian astronauts. It was then that she was able to isolated L. fermentum ME-3. Since then research has focused on discovering more about the health benefits.

Mihkel Zilmer, MD, PhD who also does research at the University of Tartu in Estonia has focused his work on how this particular probiotic strain actually boosts glutathione. It was unexpected that this strain would boost glutathione as it isn’t a typical probiotics benefit.

This is a very important benefit because it’s almost impossible to take a truly effective supplement of glutathione. Glutathione supplements can be beneficial, but it’s really hard to get a meaningful level of glutathione with supplements as we can’t measure how much is atually getting into the cell to do its clean up.

Also, taking oral glutathione supplements sometimes results in feeling poorly when we eat sulfur-based foods, medications or other supplements.

What is Reg’Activ?

Reg’Activ™ is brand name for L. fermentum ME-3 supplements distributed by Essential Formulas.

There are 3 different formulas:
One is for heart health and wellness.
One is for immune function and vitality.
One is for liver and detoxification.

Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 facts:

Research show confirms that L. fermentum ME-3 improves Glutathione using 3 different mechanisms:

  1.  it synthesizes glutathione itself*
  2.  it regenerates reduced glutathione (GSSG) back into its active state (GSH)*
  3.  it takes in available glutathione molecules from it’s surrounding environment

Here are some of the most significant Benefits of L fermentum ME-3

ME-3 increases glutathione levelit’s ability for detoxification. Glutathione is known to support the body’s normal detoxification systems especially heavy metals like mercury, arsenic and lead.

Glutathione is known to help neutralize air pollutants and agricultural pesticides.

Most of glutathione is made in the liver. This pathway is one of the ways to neutralize and remove a wide range of toxins in the body. L. fermentum ME-3 has the ability to increase total antioxidant activity and may help support a healthy liver.*

L. fermentum ME-3 has been shown to help maintain triglyceride levels already in the normal range and increase levels of the “good” HDL cholesterol* It even helps maintain healthy levels of oxidized LDL-cholesterol already within the normal range.*
