Your Questions Answered: Prebiotics FOS, Enzymes And Probiotics & Serratiopeptidase

Question: Why should I avoid probiotics that contain Prebiotics or FOS?

The consumption of FOS, or fructooligosaccharides, commonly found in many dietary supplements, may exacerbate symptoms in some patients, especially those with Candida or small intestinal bowel overgrowth (SIBO). FOS can stimulate the growth of bacteria such as E.coli, Klebsiella, and clostridia, which can be detrimental if there is an imbalance in the gut. Thus, for individuals with significant gut disturbances, it’s advised to avoid supplements containing FOS. Instead, natural sources like garlic and onions are more beneficial as they also have properties that inhibit harmful bacteria. Therefore, in developing Canxida Restore, we purposely omitted any artificial prebiotic sugars, including FOS.

Question: How do digestive enzymes enhance the efficacy of probiotics?

Digestive enzymes are vital in enhancing the efficacy of probiotics because they facilitate improved digestion. By ensuring the efficient breakdown of food, especially carbohydrates, digestive enzymes help create an environment conducive for beneficial bacteria to thrive. Proper digestion also aids in preventing partially digested foods from passing through a leaky gut, thereby reducing potential food allergy responses. When digestion is optimized, healthy bacteria can effectively act on and ferment the digested food particles, further supporting a balanced gut environment. Consequently, with a robust digestive process, the body can naturally suppress and manage candida overgrowth. Combining digestive enzymes with probiotics provides a dual approach: improving digestion and boosting the beneficial bacteria population in the gut.

Criteria Probiotics Digestive Enzymes
Primary Function Restore and maintain a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Facilitate the breakdown of food into absorbable nutrients.
Composition Live beneficial bacteria strains. Proteins that speed up chemical reactions.
Benefits Improve gut health, boost immunity, and aid in nutrient absorption. Assist in digestion, reduce bloating, and help in nutrient absorption.
Application Taken to replenish the gut’s beneficial bacteria, especially after antibiotic use. Used to aid digestion, especially when the body lacks specific enzymes to break down certain foods.
Source Naturally found in fermented foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, and kimchi. Produced by the body, but can also be found in certain foods and supplements.

Question: Why is serratiopeptidase an important enzyme to have in a probiotic formula?

Serratiopeptidase is an important enzyme to have in a probiotic formula for several reasons:

  • Natural Anti-Inflammatory: Serratiopeptidase is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce inflammation in the body, which is essential for overall gut health and systemic wellness.
  • Clearing “Junk” Molecules: Serratiopeptidase has the ability to bind to “junk” molecules, which could be fragments of dead cells, bacteria, or other waste products. By binding to these molecules, it helps escort them out of the body, ensuring a cleaner and healthier internal environment.
  • Enhancing Antibody Efficiency: The enzyme can improve the functioning of antibodies. Antibodies are proteins produced by the immune system to neutralize pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and foreign substances. By enhancing their function, serratiopeptidase supports the body’s natural defense mechanisms.
  • Supporting Gut Health: In combination with probiotics, serratiopeptidase can help maintain a balanced gut flora. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it aids in reducing gut inflammation, which can be a common issue in individuals with digestive disturbances.

In summary, incorporating serratiopeptidase into a probiotic formula amplifies the formula’s efficacy by not only supporting the beneficial bacteria in the gut but also by ensuring a cleaner internal environment and bolstering the body’s natural immune responses. Our product CanXida Restore contains serratiopeptidase and other probiotics plus enzymes.
