The bacteria colonizing the GI tract (microbiome) form an intricate and mutually beneficial relationship with our body. These bacteria offer many benefits to us, including strengthening gut integrity, harvesting energy, protecting against pathogens, and regulating immunity. However, there is potential for these mechanisms to be disrupted as a result of an altered microbial composition, known as dysbiosis. Studies suggest that dysbiosis has a role in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), obesity, diabetes, and even depression & anxiety.
A healthy gut microbiome is crucial for good health. Even those who do not have apparent GI issues or symptoms can benefit from an enhanced natural flora. This combination includes three components that work together to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria and reduce the effects and number of harmful bacteria. The probiotic component are the strains of bacteria you want to encourage growth of; the prebiotic is the food for the good bacteria to utilize; and the postbiotic provides nourishment of the colonic mucosa and encourages the positive relationship between the microbiome and host. This synergistic combination, handpicked by 20Lighter co-founder Dr. Dembrowski, provides you with the best products available to establish and nurture a healthy gut microbiome.
20Lighter co-founder Dr. Dembrowski reviewed the available nutritional supplements targeting inflammation and chose this combination because of the strength of the brands, the specific proprietary molecules, and synergy between the omega-3 fatty acids and flavonoids. Below is a short review of the information about each key ingredient found in the scientific literature.
Curcuma, from turmeric is listed as the active ingredient in over a hundred human clinical trials ranging from osteoarthritis to depression and cancer. Its effects have long been of interest but challenges relating to the molecule’s poor bioavailabilty were problematic. The proprietary CurQFen molecule in this supplement combo provides 7-10 times the absorption of standard preparations.
Xanthohumol is a hops-derived bioflavanoid antioxidant, and it has been the subject of intense study over the past ~7 years. Preclinical studies show the molecule has wide-ranging benefits, but of particular interest are it’s potent anti-inflammatory effects. There remains significant interest in this compound, as it has been the focus of four separate clinical trials laying the groundwork for additional investigations as a treatment for metabolic syndrome and in cancer prevention.
Omega-3 fatty acid benefits are now thought to go beyond cardio-protective potential benefits. These essential fatty acids (your body can’t make on it’s own) are now showing important roles in the interplay between the bacteria that reside in your GI Tract & immune system, and in health brain structure and function. Many of those who have tried Omega supplements found the fish oil flavor after ingestion to be distasteful. Dr. Dembrowski chose this product because of its high quality, EPA/DHA ratio, and the pleasant lemon flavor that eliminates an unpleasant after taste.
