Probiotic Plus Prebiotic and a Healthy Gut
An unhealthy gut may have:
- An imbalanced immune response
- Reduced capacity to produce and secrete adequate digestive liquids and enzymes, leading to indigestion, low nutrient absorption, and sometimes bacteria overgrowth
- A weak barrier that allows allergens and bacteria toxins to reach your bloodstream
- Poor communication with the brain, which can impact mental health and cognitive function
- Unhealthy movement that may result in irregularity and other digestive discomforts
An unhealthy gut can result in many symptoms outside the gut. Though problems such as gas, bloating, indigestion, irregularity, and digestive discomfort are obviously digestive issues, unhealthy skin, brain fog, mood and energy struggles, and weight gain may also be signs of an unhealthy gut.
Probiotic plus prebiotic supplement promote all aspects of a healthy gut. They help balance the immune response, add to your digestive enzyme bank account, strengthen your gut barrier, communicate with your brain, and promote healthy gut movement.
Lactobacillus Plantarum OM
Other Ingredients: Fructooligosaccharides, Stabilized Rice Bran, Vegetable Capsule (Plant Cellulose and Water).
Supports Gut Barrier Health and Nutrient Absorption
When the gut barrier is supported by probiotics, it becomes stronger, less inflamed, and more efficient at digestion and nutrient absorption. A leaky gut often allows bacterial toxins or partially digested food particles into the bloodstream, leading to chronic inflammation.
P3OM can support the leaky gut repair process, which in turn helps with food sensitivities and chronic inflammation.
Optimizes Digestive Function and Relieves Digestive Symptoms
Probiotics plus pre biotics can help improve digestive symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, bloating, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). P3-OM produces protein-digesting enzymes that help you break down the proteins you eat. L. plantarum also ferments fibers and produces beneficial substances that support the gut barrier, balance the gut immune system, and provide energy to the gut cells.
Controls the Growth of Bad Bacteria, Viruses, and Yeasts in the Gut
L. plantarum OM has antiviral and anti-fungal properties. It also specifically kills bad bacteria and leaves beneficial bacteria intact. With these properties, P3-OM probiotics can also support recovery from food poisoning and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
Improves Mood, Stress Resilience, and Brain Balance
L. plantarum produces neurotransmitters and ensures that they are in balance with each other. Symptoms of imbalanced neurotransmitters include anxiety, depression, irritability, and brain fog.
L. plantarum also supports the gut-brain axis to normalize excessive stress response, so some people may find that it improves their mood, ability to handle stress, and cognitive function.
Support Healthy Immune Function
If you have a healthy immune system, you can effectively fight off an infection. A healthy immune system also means that you’re less likely to have autoimmunity, allergies, or other symptoms of chronic inflammation. L. plantarum can support balanced and healthy immune function.
May Help With Yeast Infection
The vaginal bacteria flora reflects that of the gut, so recurrent vaginal yeast infection is a sign of gut dysbiosis. Several lactobacilli strains help with vaginal yeast infections, when taken orally. Therefore, P3-OM may help with vaginal yeast infection as a probiotic. Some of our users find P3-OM probiotics helpful with yeast infections, while others combine it with other interventions.
May Improve Weight Loss
Your gut bacteria play a major role in your physique. For example, having too much bad bacteria due to unhealthy diets can lead to a leaky gut, which then allows bad bacteria toxins into the bloodstream. These toxins create chronic low-grade inflammation that cause fatigue and increase hunger, which often leads to weight gain. P3OM can help repair a leaky gut and kill bad bacteria, which can both support weight loss efforts in combination with diet and exercise.
Support Muscle Building Efforts
Optimal digestive function and protein assimilation are critical for muscle building, in addition to the right diet and training program. Also, incompletely digested proteins on bodybuilding-style diets can become very unhealthy metabolic products. L. plantarum OM is a proteolytic bacteria, which can support your protein digestion and assimilation.
Probiotic Plus Prebiotic
When prebiotics are added to probiotics, it is known as a synbiotic. Synbiotic refers to the synergistic combination of healthy gut bacteria, from the probiotic, and fibers that the probiotic can ferment for additional energy, provided by the prebiotic. Synbiotics tend to be more effective than probiotics alone because the bacteria’s growth and survival is enhanced by the prebiotics. The fermentation process that results from their combination also produces metabolites that further benefit our health.
How Probiotics Work
Most supplemental probiotics are transient visitors to your gut. While they are visiting, they share genes and produce substances that produce health benefits. They support your health by:
- Strengthening your gut barrier by producing beneficial substances, stimulating protective mucus, or preventing bad bacteria from staying in your gut
- Competing with bad bacteria for space and resources
- Producing antimicrobial substances to inhibit the growth of bad bacteria, which can sometimes make your microbiome healthier
- Balancing the immune system, so it can effectively fight off pathogens but also prevent allergic or autoimmune diseases
- Producing enzymes to digest food and food substances we don’t have enzymes to digest
- Processing (activating or degrading) supplements, drugs, hormones, nutrients, and neurotransmitters
- Communicating with your brain through neurotransmitter-like substances and nerves that connects between the brain and the gut
- Producing and activating vitamins, such as vitamin K and some B vitamins
When To Take Probiotics
The goal is to deliver the probiotics to your large intestine relatively intact, so you want to minimize their exposure to your stomach acid and naturally occurring digestive enzymes. When food enters your stomach, your gut secretes digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid, so it’s best to take your probiotics on an empty stomach. However, if you get stomach upset from taking it without food or cannot take it without food for any other reason, probiotics are still beneficial when taken with meals.
Our P3-OM preparation (freeze-dry method) can withstand stomach acid and digestive enzymes, so you will still experience the benefits even if you take it with meals.
On average, it takes between 9 and 11 hours for food to reach the colon after ingestion. To use P3-OM to support protein digestion, take it in the morning. To use P3-OM to kill bad bacteria in the gut or improve your microbiome, take it at night before bed.
If you are taking antibiotics or supplements that may have antibacterial properties, be sure to take them at least an hour away from your probiotics.
When is the best time to take this product?
P3-OM is a live probiotic strain and is best consumed first thing in the morning, with a meal to enhance digestion, or right before going to bed to allow the probiotics to get into the large intestines for maximum benefits.
Why do you use RICE BRAN in this product?
We use stabilized hypoallergenic rice bran as an agent to prolong the shelf life of the enzymes which can become activated by moisture. By including a stabilized hypoallergenic rice bran we are able to offer longer shelf life and improved effectiveness of the product.
The date on the bottle is about to expire, why is that?
The date listed on the P3-OM is the MFD (Manufacturing Date). You can find this date on the bottom of the bottle. The product expires 2 years after MFD.
Why do you use only 1 strain and not multiple strains?
We use only one strain of probiotics because it’s a hyper-aggressive strain that’s designed to rid your body of pathogens, undigested proteins, and other contaminants which can be compromising your system.
Everybody’s microbiome is different, so we have developed a strain of bacteria that could be used by virtually everyone without upsetting the balance that implant colonizing strains could have. P3-OM goes through the whole body, not just the digestive tract, and this helps clear every part of the system to help support your entire immune response.
Can you use other probiotics with P3-OM?
Taking multiple or combined strains is not recommended since they can often compete against each other, don’t survive the gastrointestinal tract, or upset the balance of the microbiome.
If you do decide to use other probiotics that have different strains, it is suggested that you cycle off and on every 3 months to different probiotics or use a transient strain like P3-OM.
How long does P3-OM stay in your body?
The live probiotics in P3-OM will remain in the body for 3 to 5 days. If you stop taking probiotics, the gut bacteria are likely to return to their pre-supplementation condition within one to three weeks.
To maintain optimal microbiome, we recommend a maintenance dose after 90 days of high dosage.
Consult your medical practitioner prior to starting any supplements.
How do you take probiotics if you take more than one?
We recommend only taking one probiotic strain since multiple strains can often compete against each other, will upset the balance of the microbe, or will not survive the gastrointestinal tract.
If you are taking more than one type of probiotic, we suggest splitting up the doses, one in the morning and one in the evening.
Always consult your medical practitioner prior to starting any supplement.
Is this product safe for children? If so, what is the recommended dosage?
P3-OM is safe for children. The recommended dose is 1 capsule for every 44 lbs.
Please consult your medical practitioner prior to starting any supplement.
What is the recommended dosage?
The recommended dosage for P3-OM is 1-2 capsules with every meal and 1-2 capsules before bed. You can find the dosage on the label.
Consult your medical practitioner prior to starting any supplement.
