Probiotics

Biomunity™ Probiotic is specifically designed to deliver real support to healthy immune systems dealing with lifestyle stresses and environmental challenges that can impact the health of the gut microbiome. It is a complete probiotic supplement containing 50 Billion Live Colony Forming Units (CFUs) per capsule, and a well-studied blend of 5 probiotic bacterial strains that clinical testing has shown to be highly effective at helping maintain healthy immune system function. To ensure that the probiotic bacteria are not destroyed by gastric or bile acids before they are released into the bowel, Biomunity™ is delivered in an acid-resistant capsule.

We selected a blend of probiotic strains shown to make a real difference in the quality of life of people with compromised immune systems and put them into this product designed to support your healthy immune system’s function. 

Biomunity Step 2: Multistrain Probiotic Capsule

5 Probiotic Ingredients

Lactobacillus acidophilis (KB27) has been linked to increased serum IgG antibody levels in the gut.  [1] Serum IgG is crucial in immunological memory.  L. acidophilis is also effective and safe as an adjuvant in the treatment of acute, chronic, and antibiotic associated diarrhea. [2]

 

Lactobacillus plantarum (KB71) has an exceptional ability to bind to the intestinal mucosa (the innermost layer of the gastrointestinal tract), greatly increasing your gut’s population of beneficial bacteria.  [3] This bacterial strain has also been shown to improve skin hydration and has anti-photoaging effects, reducing wrinkle depth and improving skin gloss and elasticity. [4][5]

 

Lactobacillus reuteri (KB80) has been linked to the reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines in the gut.  [6][7] This particular strain has also been shown to play a role in helping the body to inhibit the effects of a form of inflammation that can prevent hair growth. Increasing the population of this probiotic strain has been shown to result in thicker, shinier, and more lustrous hair. [8]

 

Lactobacillus rhamnosus (KB79) helps control inflammation response and limit the growth of harmful bacteria in the gut. This probiotic has a remarkable ability to resist degradation in stomach acid and intestinal bile and to adhere to the intestinal mucosa. [9] Studies suggest it may be effective in preventing diarrhea. [10]

 

Bifidobacterium lactis (KB 63) helps enhance the activity of cells designed to eliminate pathogens in the gut.  [11]  Research indicates that this strain can be beneficial in the management of metabolic endotoxicity.  [12]

Biomunity™ selected a blend of probiotic strains shown to make a real difference in quality of life and to support immune system functions.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: How does this Probiotic work?

Without a large number of diverse beneficial bacteria performing their essential functions, the gut microbiome’s ability to support a healthy immune system is compromised. Biomunity™ Probiotic works in 3 steps to deliver meaningful immune system support:

  The “good” microbes inside each Kibow Biomunity™ Probiotic capsule produce Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) after consuming fibers delivered by Kibow Biomunity™ Prebiotic. These SCFAs maintain the cells that make up the gut barrier and trigger your body’s natural immune response functions.

  SCFAs also help activate your body’s T-cells, another essential immune response.

  By taking the capsules regularly, the beneficial bacteria (or, probiotics) grow to outnumber harmful bacterial strains, which—in turn—restricts their growth.

Q3: How does it modulate the gut microbiome?

Biomunity™ supports a healthy native immune system and maintenance of the immune response. They promote an anti-inflammatory state in the gut and reinforce the intestinal barrier (microbiome). A healthy microbiome has been linked to a decreased risk of infections where macrophages and natural killer cells are activated which allows for the destruction of invading pathogens.

Q5: What can I expect from a new probiotic?


Biomunity™ supports a healthy native immune system and maintenance of the immune response. They promote an anti-inflammatory state in the gut and reinforce the intestinal barrier (microbiome). A healthy microbiome has been linked to a decreased risk of infections where macrophages and natural killer cells are activated which allows for the destruction of invading pathogens.

Q7: What are some other benefits of this product?

Kibow Biomunity™ may also help with improving energy, bowel regularity, relief from symptoms of diarrhea and constipation, and replenishing and fostering the balance of gut flora after a course of antibiotic medications.*

Q2: Is Biomunity™ safe?

Probiotics are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the US FDA for consumption. Our product is manufactured in a Good Manufacturing Practices(GMPs)–a compliant facility that also processes products containing peanuts, tree nuts, seeds, grains, eggs, crustaceans, and dairy products. Please consult your healthcare professional prior to taking this product or any other dietary supplement.

Q4: What is an acid-resistant capsule?

Acid-resistant capsules protect microbes from digestive acids in the stomach. This allows "good" bacteria to reach the intestines where they can flourish and provide their benefits.

Q6: Do I have to store this Probiotic in the refrigerator?


Although refrigeration is recommended for optimal outcomes and storage, Kibow Biomunity™ Probiotic can be stored at room temperature for as long as 10 days because extra bacterial (or, CFUs) have been added to ensure plenty reach your gut, if taken promptly (within 18 months) after opening. Refrigeration helps preserve the bacteria CFUs for a longer period, up to 2 years.

Q8: Who can I contact if I have questions?


We invite you to email your questions to: info@biomunity.com. We will respond as promptly as possible.
