When Good Goes Wrong

The human intestinal tract is an intricate system that participates in the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients. Beyond these well-known functions, the intestines are extremely important to overall well-being because of their role in maintaining immune health. The large intestine is naturally filled with billions of microbes that provide protection against invading pathogens and help breakdown potentially toxic undigested food matter. Without the proper balance and activity of these beneficial bacteria, the digestive system and the immune system would not function appropriately, leaving the body susceptible to infection.

Candida albicansis usually a harmless yeast present in the body. However, stress, in the form of modern lifestyles, hormonal imbalances, excessive sugar consumption, environmental pollutants, and pharmaceutical drugs, including antibiotics and oral contraceptives, can wreak havoc on the balance of microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract.

Candida, being an opportunistic organism, will flourish under these adverse conditions. And when Candida is anchored to the intestinal tract, intestinal leakage and immune disorders may result. Human cells respond to Candida overgrowth in the same way they respond to infection. The immune response, often causing disruptions in the lining of the gastrointestinal system, can cause fatigue, discomfort, bloating, diarrhea, cramping, and even nausea.

Candida removal is the logical first step toward effective intestinal cleansing. Ironically, the same treatment used to address Candida overgrowth, may cause conditions that welcome recurrence. Antibiotics are currently the main therapeutic agents used in treatment of Candida overgrowth, however, recurrence of infection, side effects, and secondary infections are very common. It is clear that intestinal and urogenital microflora play a central role in maintaining the health and well-being of humans. Therefore, the use of supplemental probiotics to replace or augment natural bacterial populations is gradually achieving acceptance.*

Floracor-GI for Candida Yeast Cleanse

Floracor-GI® is a revolutionary blend of probiotics, prebiotics and enzymes specially formulated to help maintain a proper balance of intestinal microflora, inhibit pathogenic bacteria and prevent the overgrowth of yeast organisms, mainly Candida.*

Floracor-GI distinguishes itself from other intestinal cleansing formulas in the following ways:

  • Chitosanase is a unique and powerful enzyme that helps to break down chitin, an important part of the structure of the Candida cell wall. Cellulase enhances this activity by breaking down the cellulose component of the cell wall.
  • SEBiotic® is a special spore-forming probiotic that is incredibly stable in the dormant state. Using our Enhanced Probiotic Delivery System™(EPDS), this probiotic can exist in a dehydrated state indefinitely.
  • EPDS™ delivers larger amounts of living bacteria into the intestinal tract, where they colonize and flourish. Once in the intestinal tract, these bacteria exit their spores, attach themselves to the intestinal mucosa, and begin to germinate, producing new colonies of friendly bacteria.
  • Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), nutrient-dense alfalfa and papaya powder comprise a fortified prebiotic blend, which enhances the growth and stability of probiotics in the gut.
  • High-activity proteases, including Peptizyme-SP brand serrapeptase, hydrolyze putrefying food matter trapped between the intestinal villi, which can cause sluggish digestion, bloating and an increase in toxins. These enzymes create a better intestinal environment, improved absorption, motility and better overall colon health.

The main difference between Floracor-GI and Syntol is the variety of probiotic strains. Although Syntol utilizes six of the clinically proven effective probiotic strains, Floracor-GI uses 11 of the most effective strains. The importance of including a wide variety of strains is based on the fact that certain probiotic strains prefer to inhabit specific areas within the intestine. By including various strains, it is more likely the consumer will receive optimum benefits.

Another major drawback of Syntol is the lack of fructooligosaccharides, or FOS. FOS is a prebiotic, meaning it provides an energy source specifically for beneficial bacteria in the large intestine. FOS also has beneficial effects on cholesterol metabolism, and can help to lower colonic pH, making it difficult for harmful bacteria to survive, promoting the colonization of beneficial bacteria.

Research

The protease enzyme Serrapeptase and enzymes like Cellulase and Chitosanase attack the outer cell wall of Candida yeast, weakening its hold on the intestinal mucosa and reducing their viability.

Chitosanase is important for the breakdown of cell walls, especially in the eradication of Candida, and removing it from the intestinal tract. Chitosanase has been proven to efficiently degrade cell walls, as it was utilized in an experiment requiring the removal of the cell wall from sporangiospores.1

Other crucial ingredients found in Floracor-GI are probiotic organisms such as L. acidophilusand L. casei, whichbenefit the human host by acting as a first line of defense against disease-causing pathogens by improving the intestinal microflora. These probiotic bacteria have documented desirable clinical effects. L. acidophilus and L. casei, produce organic acids, such as lactic and acetic acids, which lower intestinal pH and inhibit the growth of pathogens. These organic acids also increase movement within the gut, thereby indirectly removing pathogens by accelerating their rate of transit through the large intestine – producing detoxifying effects. Bifidobacterium spp. and L. acidophilus are able to survive the upper regions of the gastrointestinal tract, which is essential in achieving therapeutic effects.

Therapeutic potential and health benefits of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria include:

o   Enhancement of immunity against intestinal infections

o   Immune enhancement

o   Prevention of diarrheal diseases

o   Prevention of colon cancer: Probiotics are thought to prevent cancer by inhibition of carcinogens, activation of the host’s immune system, prevention of microbial activity by lowering pH, and altering colonic motility.

o   Prevention of hypercholesterolemia (An excess of cholesterol in the bloodstream)

o   Improvement in lactose utilization: L. acidophilus and bifidobacteria produce β-D-galactosidase, an enzyme which autodigests lactose and improves tolerance to lactose.

o   Prevention of upper gastrointestinal tract diseases

o   Stabilization of the gut mucosal barrier

Lactobacillus plantarum, another ingredient in Floracor-GI, is a probiotic organism that plays a major role in making the intestine a home for beneficial organisms, and a barrier for pathogens. In laboratory studies, L. plantarum strains had a significantly higher adhesion capacity compared to other strains tested – meaning it is effective in inhibiting pathogenic organisms, and will act as a barrier by developing its antimicrobial activities in the host system of defense.2

Bacillus coagulans: Despite the transient nature of this organism in the digestive tract, it is thought to produce a shift in the intestinal environment in support of a complex gastrointestinal flora. Bacillus coagulans works to improve gastrointestinal ecology by replenishing the quantity of desirable microorganisms and antagonizing pathogenic microbes. Ithas also been shown in vitro to produce bacteriocins, which kill harmful substances - it is also a producer of short-chain fatty acids that nourish the colony mucosa.3

Saccharomyces boulardii: Intestinal epithelial cell damage is frequently seen in the mucosal lesions of inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. Complete remission of these diseases requires both the cessation of inflammation and the migration of enterocytes to repair the damaged epithelium. Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast widely used as a therapeutic agent for the treatment and prevention of diarrhea and other gastrointestinal disorders.4 It assists in anti-inflammatory protection by controlling the pro-inflammatory cytokine known as Interleukin 8, which has a tendency to become secreted in the gut, especially when the host is infected with E. coli.5

Aside from just offering the above mentioned probiotics, Floracor-GI is also equipped with prebiotics, which stimulate growth and activity of beneficial microflora within the gut. This property makes Floracor-GI a synbiotic supplement, meaning it is a mixture of a probiotics and prebiotics that beneficially affect the host by improving the survival and establishment of microbial dietary supplements in the gastrointestinal tract.

Fructooligosaccharide (FOS prebiotic)has implications for several disorders, ranging from liver disease to antibiotic-associated diarrhea to colon cancer. Short-chain FOS are metabolized to short-chain fatty acids, lowering pH in the colon. This facilitates calcium absorption, which may be beneficial for individuals with renal and liver disease, and has implications for colon cancer protection as well. Short-chain fatty acids are the preferred substrate for colonic epithelial cells, which are potentially beneficial for those with ulcerative colitis risk.Other effects of short-chain FOS include an effect on cholesterol metabolism through interference with enterohepatic circulation of cholesterol. Short-chain FOS allow for a favorable shift in the balance of healthful vs harmful organisms, lowering colonic pH while providing an energy source for the gut, with significant implications for disease prevention.6

FAQ

What is systemic enzyme therapy?

Systemic enzyme therapy refers to the therapeutic use of natural enzymes to produce desired healing effects Systemic enzymes are absorbed from the small intestine where they enter the bloodstream and execute their effects on the entire body as a system. As an immune health formula, the enzymes in Floracor-GI are formulated to regulate and maintain digestive health by helping to remove debris and toxins from the intestinal tract. In doing this, Floracor-GI can increase nutrient absorption and establish a balance of microflora.

 

Why do I need intestinal cleansing?

Although the typical Western diet that is rich in red meats and processed foods obviously produces less than optimal conditions in the GI tract, even a healthy diet may pose threats. Foods that are rich in fiber are encouraged and should be included in the diet daily. However, fiber is a difficult to digest carbohydrate. Raw fruits, vegetables, and whole wheat all contain desirable fiber that some may have difficulty digesting, causing gas and bloating. Undigested food matter may potentially become trapped in parts of the bowel, slowing digestion and impairing overall colon health. Using Floracor-GI can help break down and remove trapped food particles within the colon.

 

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are live microorganisms, producing beneficial effects to the host when ingested. This type of helpful bacteria is found naturally in the gut, but circumstances like antibiotic use, stress and aging can destroy them, along with their favorable effects. The right balance of microflora within the intestine can reduce risk of conditions like inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer and irritable bowel syndrome. Prevention and treatment of bacterial-induced diarrhea is another important function of microflora balance.

 

What is Candida albicans?

Candida albicansis a strain of yeast that is normally found in the intestinal tract. In appropriate amounts, it is harmless, but overgrowth can wreak havoc on delicate microflora balance. When overgrowth occurs, symptoms such as: diarrhea, gas, bloating and infection may develop. Floracor protects the balance of microflora within the gut by also regulating Candida overgrowth.

 

How does Floracor-GI impact my nutritional status?

When the gut is clear of debris and toxins, surface absorption is increased, allowing all nutrients that have been properly broken down to enter the bloodstream. Increased nutrient absorption will allow vitamins and minerals to be more efficiently utilized, yielding results like decreased fatigue, increased satiety, and increased immune support.

 

How long should I take Floracor-GI before feeling results?

Since people experience varying ailments and severity of disease, the length of time to include systemic enzymes in your regimen may vary as well. As an overall guideline, it is typically recommended that new systemic enzyme users start off slow. A starter dose is generally one capsule, three times daily. After one week of proven tolerance, the dose can be increased to a therapeutic dose of 2 capsules, 3 times per day. At this point, results may be monitored, and dosage should be adjusted accordingly. Some consumers find their therapeutic dose between 6 to 9 capsules per day, while others only need 3. There are several factors that may affect results and required dosage, including:

Height

Weight

Age

Severity of symptoms

Tolerance

Time of administration: (Better absorbed on an empty stomach)

Adherence to regimen

Nutritional state

 

What if I miss a dose?

Regular, consistent use of systemic enzymes will provide the best results, however missed doses of systemic enzymes do not have serious repercussions. Although symptoms alleviated by systemic enzyme therapy may resurface, getting back on track by remembering to take your next dose will suffice. There is also the option of incorporating another dose during the day. There is no need to “double up,” on one dose - and remember, systemic enzymes are best absorbed on an empty stomach.

 

Why is it important to take Floracor-GI on an empty stomach?

Since most absorption occurs in the small intestine, the systemic enzymes must bypass the stomach to gain access to it. If the enzymes are taken with food, they will likely begin working to break down your food within the stomach, rather than passing through to the small intestine. Taking systemic enzymes like Floracor-GI with food will compromise their activity in the intestines, as well as their effectiveness.

 

Is it dangerous to take a systemic enzyme with food?

It is not dangerous to take a systemic enzyme with food, but you risk depleting its effectiveness. For the enzyme to successfully reach its target (the intestine), food should be absent – otherwise it may interfere with desired enzymatic action.

 

Are there any side effects involved with Floracor-GI?

The use of Floracor-GI has not been shown to exhibit detrimental effects, neither long term nor short term. Just as dosage requirements vary, side effects may vary as well. Although gastrointestinal disturbances have been reported by a small percentage of new users, tolerance is maintained once the dosage is adjusted. There are no known interactions with prescription or over the counter drugs while using systemic enzyme therapy. However, it is recommended that you consult with your physician about starting systemic enzymes, especially if you are currently on blood-thinning medications, or if you are pregnant or nursing.

 

What does “proprietary blend” mean?

Proprietary refers to a patent, or ownership. Applying to our immune health blend, it means we alone own the rights to the specific blend of enzymes and probiotics found in Floracor-GI, making our products different from similarly marketed systemic enzyme supplements. Floracor-GI encompasses an all-inclusive gastrointestinal health blend that simultaneously assists in the balance and regularity of several crucial components within the intestines.

 

Can I take Floracor-GI with other systemic or digestive enzymes?

Although digestive and systemic enzymes arenot contraindicated in terms of ingredients, they cannot be taken at the same time. Because systemic enzymes require an empty stomach for maximum absorption, they must be taken separately from food. The purpose of digestive enzymes is to aid in digestion of specific foods, so taking them with food is an obvious recommendation. There are no adverse interactions between systemic and digestive enzymes, but they serve different purposes, and should be taken as directed for best results. Remember: although Floracor-GI aids in digestion, it is considered a systemic enzyme product and should be taken on an empty stomach for maximum benefits.
