BIOHM Probiotics Retain Viability in Low pH Environments Simulating the Digestive Environment

Ghannoum M*, Ghannoum A, Long L, Sun PL and Isham N

Probiotics in various combinations and in various forms have become popular supplements for establishing and maintaining gut health. However, commercial products vary in the effectiveness of their specific probiotic strains and the ability of these strains to survive the acidic environment of the stomach. A novel probiotic, manufactured by BIOHM, LLC, has a unique formulation of Saccharomyces boulardii, Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, and Bifidobacterium breve, in combination with amylase, which has been developed to re-balance the bacterial and fungal population of the human gastrointestinal tract and combat digestive biofilms formed by pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Our data shows that these strains have the ability to survive the acidic environment when taken within 30 minutes of meal, a factor that is vital to ensure probiotic effectiveness.
