The balanced intestine

Studies have shown that the intestinal bacteria of overweight people have a different composition than the intestinal bacteria of slim people. It has been shown that people who have more Firmicutes than Bacteroidetes bacteria are more likely to be overweight.

This is because Firmicutes are better at converting fat and thereby storing it, whereas Bacteroidetes bacteria utilize fat poorly and, as a result, the fat simply passes through the body without being captured. The situation is similar with carbohydrates: While Bacteroidetes bacteria encapsulate unused carbohydrates, which are then simply excreted with the stool, Firmicutes bacteria specialize in digesting and storing carbohydrates.

Every person needs both bacterial strains for a healthy digestion, but the relative proportion is crucial: Firmicutes hereby help the body to absorb calories more efficiently, which in turn can lead to weight gain. Fortunately, we can influence the proportions of our bacterial strains by altering our lifestyle and eating habits, thereby reclaiming Bacteroidetes bacteria to help us lose weight. An adequate amount of exercise is also important to reduce overweight.

Recommended ingestion

The live microorganisms come in the form of a powder contained in capsules with enteric coating. This is to ensure that they pass through the stomach without any problems. During digestion, the stomach produces acid and enzymes which the microbes would not survive. To make absolutely sure that the capsules will arrive undamaged in the intestine, it is recommended that the capsules be ingested 20 to 30 minutes before a meal. By the time they reach the intestine, the coating has dissolved and the bacterial strains can colonize the colon. If you want to get the bacteria colonizing as soon as possible, it is recommended to take two capsules a day (preferably one in the morning and one in the evening). However, if you find you have a slight reaction – many people temporarily experience flatulence due to the prebiotic inulin – ingestion should be reduced to one capsule per day. It is not a problem to discontinue ingestion for 1-2 days such that the body may slowly get used to the microbes and the inulin. If you also take antibiotics, you should take at least 2 hours either before or after you take your antibiotics. The recommended daily dose should not be exceeded. If you experience prolonged digestive problems, you should consult a physician. Compatibility with other probiotic products from BIOMES and drugs: It is possible to combine two or more probiotic food supplements from BIOMES. However, for the microbes to develop optimally, we recommend not to take more than one probiotic product at any one time. The recommended maximum number of capsules is 2 per day. As long as this dose is not exceeded, the permanent ingestion of probiotic food supplements such as is absolutely safe. No side effects with other drugs are known. Food supplements do not substitute for a balanced and varied nutrition. Please store out of the reach of children. If you suffer from a severe histamine intolerance, you should not take this probiotic composition. We recommend to people who have a known intolerance of this type. Probiotic food supplements may be taken permanently or temporarily with the objective of colonizing the intestine with useful bacteria for the long term.
