ABx Support™ is a carefully researched blend of the non-pathogenic yeast designed to support your gut health during antibiotic treatments. This unique formula is a powerful intestinal microbiota aid and contains Saccharomyces boulardii with Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium breve to support healthy intestinal function during antibiotic usage.
S. boulardii is a probiotic yeast. It has broad, versatile gastrointestinal effects stimulating intestinal brush border enzymes to maintain normal digestive functions. It also stimulates D-glucose and sodium absorption and produces short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate and acetate that nourish colon mucosa.
L. rhamnosus colonises the small intestines when regularly consumed and favourably enhances innate and acquired immunity. It decreases T cell proliferation, induces helper (CD4+) T cell hyporesponsiveness, increases phagocytic activity in peripheral white blood cells and killing activity in natural killer cells, and supports inflammation metabolism.
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.
