Since we were kids, it’s been drilled into our heads that if we don’t brush and floss, we’re going to have plaque build up on our teeth.
But did you know that plaque doesn’t only affect your oral health, but can actually disrupt your digestive health?
That’s exactly what a world-class team of researchers proved at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center.
Dr. Ghannoum and his team discovered the bad bacteria and bad fungi work together to form digestive plaque (also known as biofilm).
The discovery made world-wide news, and was covered by media outlets such as CBS News, Scientific American, Forbes, USA Today and the Huffington Post.
Digestive plaque is a very thick wall of organisms that forms along the lining of your gut, protecting bad fungi and bacteria as they wreak havoc on your digestive system.
As you can see from the above picture, taken with a high-powered electron microscope, digestive plaque is incredibly thick and really hard to break down.
Dr. Ghannoum realized that probiotics containing good bacteria alone would unlikely have an effect on digestive plaque.
Meaning they would never be able to get through and neutralize the bad organisms hiding behind the protection of digestive plaque.
He realized that the best hope of attacking the problem and maintaining digestive balance, would be to create a probiotic that combined good bacteria with good fungi, plus an enzyme that he suspected could have a positive effect on destroying the digestive plaque. He named his probiotic, BIOHM.
Much to his delight, when he looked into the electron microscope, he found that BIOHM was able to completely destroy digestive plaque. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!
As you can see above, when BIOHM was added, the digestive plaque was almost completely destroyed.
The below infographic shows exactly how BIOHM works to break down Digestive Plaque, and maintain total balance of the microbiome.
So remember, it’s not just about good bacteria and good fungi! If you’re going to maintain total gut balance, you’ve got to tackle digestive plaque.
BIOHM is the first probiotic engineered to combine both good bacteria and good fungi, along with a powerful enzyme to break through the plaque-like protective wall formed by bad bacteria and bad fungi deep within your gut. BIOHM uses a whole microbiome approach to gently maintain balance in your digestive system— helping support your journey to achieve optimal health and wellness from within.
