Pure Encapsulations, a leading manufacturer of research-based, hypoallergenic nutritional supplements, is proud to introduce PureHeart™ Probiotic, the newest addition to The PureHeart™ Protocol: Screening + Supplements = Success™ line of nutritional supplements. PureHeart Probiotic offers a clinically researched probiotic strain exclusive to Pure Encapsulations.
“With the proprietary probiotic strain Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242, PureHeart Probiotic offers evidence-based support from a new angle in clinical cardiology,” states Kelly C. Heim, Ph.D., nutritional pharmacologist at Pure Encapsulations. “This exclusive formulation addresses basic aspects of lipid metabolism and vascular function.”
Micropharma, the supplier of Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242, is a Canadian biotechnology company focused on human metabolic health through the microbiome. Leadership in cardiometabolic product innovation and research makes Pure Encapsulations the ideal partner for Micropharma to first introduce this ingredient to the healthcare practitioner market.
Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242 was developed using the Micropharma ProSelect proprietary technology platform designed to screen and select non-GMO, probiotic candidates. Studies have indicated three key functions of the strain:
- Maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range
- Maintenance of healthy apolipoprotein B-100/apolipoprotein A-1 ratios already in the normal range
- Support of healthy plasma fibrinogen levels to promote healthy blood flow
- Furthermore, research has found that this unique strain provided in PureHeart Probiotic may encourage healthy lipid metabolism by promoting the production of deconjugated bile acids, which play an important role in the absorption of fat from the G.I. tract.
Special features of PureHeart Probiotic also include its shelf-stable formulation and acid-resistant capsules. These features allow for maintained viability without refrigeration and maximum probiotic delivery to the G.I. tract. Since the strain is grown on a dairy-free, soy-free medium, it is suitable for individuals with sensitive or restrictive diets.
