Beta-Glucan High Potency Synbiotic

The Beta Glucan Synbiotic Formula has the stamp of approval by the American Heart Association as a daily nutritious food for heart health due to its high concentration of oat beta glucan (10%). Two tablespoons of the patented beta glucan is suggested as a daily dietary guideline for cardiovascular support. The oats are 99.98% gluten free. US Patent # 6,060,519.


The Beta Glucan offers heart, gut, and immune boosting healthy support. The formula contains a powerful combination of high potency pedigreed probiotics that are specially grown to effectively colonize the GI tract. The whole organic red beetroot (15%) and inulin from organic chicory fiber (10%) are found to confer many exciting health benefits (see Research tab below).

Description

Details

The food ingredients in the Beta Glucan formula are chosen carefully for high phytonutrient potential. The proprietary mix contains: Organic matrix USDA patented hydrocolloidal beta glucan oat bran (75%), organic whole red beetroot (15%), and organic inulin from chicory fiber (10%).

Our holistic orientation and manufacturing technology preserves the high actives of these wonderful therapeutic foods (see food science tab!). While our Microbiome technology creates hardy and viable pedigreed Original strains: L. acidophilus, B. longum, L. rhamnosus, L. plantarum, S. thermophilus. Our Original strains of lactic acid bacteria are based on ATCC prototypical strains and confirmed routinely by 16sRNA sequencing to provide highest quality probiotic material. These strains are hardy, strong, and effective.

The Original strains of pedigreed probiotics are certified and mixed into a proprietary blend of 33 billion cfu/tbl, plus a bonus 50 billion more probiotic organism that are added at the time of manufacturing to boost and ensure a high potency. If taken only as a probiotic formula, 1-2 teaspoons will suffice as a daily dosage of up to 25 billion cfu.

The special heat-shearing technology for liberating the beta-glucans from the oat is patented (US Patent # 6,060,519). The oat beta-glucan is considered by the FDA as gluten free (99.98% gluten free). We suggest that our very sensitive celiac friends try a very small portion with care.

We are proud to have the Beta Glucan qualifies for the American Heart Association and the FDA "Heart Healthy" seal of approval: improving lipid serum levels.

Beet betalains prevent oxidation of LDLs and lower triglycerides, stimulate Phase II liver detox, as well as perform a host of health benefits (see Clifford et al., 2015; Eggenbeen et al., 2016, in the Food Science tab), including the production of energy for exercise (see Murphy et al., 2012).

Inulin from organic chicory root supplies food for the probiotic organism. Yes, they must eat in order to survive. See Slavin (2013) on fiber as prebiotics, and Dehghan et al. (2013) on inulin and cardiovascular support.

Together with the Original probiotic, inulin is also found to help tighten cell junctions, which aids against leaky gut syndrome (Cani, 2007; 2007a; 2008, 2009).

The Beta Glucan formula is utilized for bowel regulation due to its content of plant and gluten free whole oat fiber (see Schmier et al., 2014, on fiber and bowel regulation).

Take a look at the Research tab to see the bibliography and engage in learning more about the many health applications scientists have discovered over the years. The tab only shows a fraction of the research findings on oat beta glucan, probiotics, red beet root, and inulin.
