GENOVA SUPPORT contains 5 species of microorganisms from non-dairy sources. 30 billion CFU Because each strain has an affinity for a different part of the digestive tract, and a unique mechanism of action, a product that delivers multiple strains is preferable to single strain products.*
The Gut and Digestive system is the body’s gateway to health where nutrients are digested and absorbed, and toxic waste products are eliminated. Usually the food we eat is broken down and very carefully selected for absorption. However, Stress, illness or use of antibiotics can have destructive consequences on the microbial balance in the G.I. Tract and colon, which can contribute to digestive upset. Genova Support formula is geared toward controlling or improving non-specific gastrointestinal dysfunction including loose bowels, nausea and associated stomach discomfort.*
GENOVA SUPPORT™ is a carefully researched blend of the non- pathogenic yeast Saccharomyces boulardii with Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium breve, probiotic microorganisms documented to support the normal gastrointestinal microbiota during antibiotic therapy.†
L. rhamnosus significantly augments serum and mucosal secreted antibody responses. B. bifidum and B. breve are two species indigenous to the colon's microbiota. Bifidobacteria are highly beneficial for normal bowel function and are exquisitely sensitive to most antibiotics. Consumption of B. bifidum and B. breve replenishes colonic bifidobacterial populations suppressing overgrowth by undesirable microorganisms.† B. bifidum is among the many Bifidobacterium species normally found in large numbers in a healthy colon microbiota. B. bifidum activates B cells making them more responsive to transforming growth factor-1 and interleukin-5 for IgA secretion. B. bifidum enhances IgA response to immune challenge. Supplementation with B. bifidum supports white cell phagocytic activity.† B. breve increases the immune response of Peyer's patch cells stimulating B cell proliferation and antibody production.† Clinical studies of the probiotic species in Genova Support™ have shown these microorganisms support healthy intestinal function during antibiotic use.†
This hypoallergenic formulation is provided in vegetarian capsules in bottles of 28 capsules, a convenient 14-day supply for concurrent use during antibiotic therapy.
