Floraphage is a blend of bacteriophage species developed to support the creation of beneficial bacteria throughout the digestive ecosystem. A bacteriophage, or simply phage, is a microscopic protein that reacts with specific bacteria in the gut. The resulting reaction of Floraphage with specific bacteria creates nutrients, known as prebiotics, for beneficial bacteria to consume. Prebiotics uses good bacteria to create an abundance of beneficial bacteria that can help maintain optimal digestive and immune health.
Phages, or bacteriophages, are everywhere. They’re in our food, in the water we drink, and even on and in our bodies. Phages are the most abundant, naturally occurring organisms on earth and have been safely used for over 90 years in the food supply . Floraphage is the first dietary supplement formula to utilize these amazing microscopic proteins.
The benefits of Floraphage include:
- Increases the potency of your probiotics
- Prevents digestive discomfort
- Can be taken alone or in combination with a probiotic
- Starts working immediately
How Floraphage Works
At this moment, trillions of microorganisms are competing for space and nutrients in your digestive tract. Harmful bacteria are fighting against the good bacteria for their place in your gut. If the bad bacteria win the battle, the result is digestive discomfort and a weakened immune system. This is why it’s important for beneficial bacteria to be strong enough to fight harmful bacteria in order to achieve proper intestinal balance and optimal health.
Aggressive strains of unwanted bacteria can sometimes outgrow and consume more resources than beneficial bacteria. This can be caused by taking antibiotics, which kill both bad and good bacteria in the body, or from a bad diet and digestive issues you’re already dealing with. This results in poor overall health, abdominal discomfort, and possible flora imbalances. To combat these damaging effects, Floraphage was developed to support the restoration and maintenance of the highly sensitive digestive ecosystem.
Floraphage Supports Normal Urinary Tract Health
Did you know that most Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are caused by specific bacteria that we consume in our food every day? Many people are plagued by chronic UTIs, but contrary to popular belief, this common problem is not due to bad habits or poor hygiene. When we consume food that contains certain types of unwanted bacteria, our bodies are able to flush out these bacteria through the urinary tract, which sometimes causes uncomfortable symptoms. Floraphage supports comfortable urinary tract function.
Floraphage Efficacy Testing and Results
To determine whether Floraphage works, especially when combined with probiotic products, we conducted several laboratory tests. Floraphage was tested in conjunction with four popular probiotic supplements to determine its ability to increase the potency or growth of each respective product.
Each product was grown in a nutrient-rich broth to mimic normal digestive conditions, until each product’s bacteria reached a specified value using optical density (OD). OD measures the amount of light that is able to scatter through a mixture, which was used to verify that the bacteria for each product had started to grow.
Once each product reached an OD of .2, indicating that the bacteria were growing and no longer dormant, a one milliliter sampling of each product was grown with Floraphage and one was grown without (the control group). Each of the four tested products showed improvement when grown with Floraphage.
The average increase in colony forming unit (CFU) activity—which is the measurement of probiotic bacteria growth—for the four products was 2,400 percent versus the control (growth without the use of Floraphage). Overall, Floraphage was able to increase the growth rate of supplemented probiotics by an average of 24 times compared with the control group.
These results show that Floraphage is an excellent product to take in conjunction with a probiotic to maximize the benefits of supplemented beneficial bacteria. It’s also helpful for those who don’t take probiotics in order to maximize indigenous probiotic growth.
