Where it all started.
After over 20 years of research supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dr. Ghannoum’s work on the microbiome has converged into one of the biggest discoveries in digestive health. The discovery is how bad bacteria and bad fungus work together to create digestive plaque. This destructive film protects bad bacteria and bad fungi as they work to upset the balance of your digestive system. His solution marked the dawning of a new generation of probiotics with dual-action technology that first breaks open digestive plaque, and then neutralizes the bad bacteria and bad fungi, which allows the gut to maintain its natural microbiome balance, ultimately supporting optimal digestive health.
“It’s not bacteria alone, it’s not fungi alone—you have to put them together.”- Dr. Ghannoum
Good bacteria. Good fungi. Great life.
For decades, scientists only focused on the bacteria inside the human body. In 2010, Dr. Ghannoum was the first scientist to identify the fungal community of the mouth. In his study, 101 fungal species were discovered with each individual hosting between 9 and 23 different fungal strains. Many of these were well known to affect wellness, because they disrupt a person’s internal equilibrium, but they also discovered a number of “good fungi” in the process. Dr. Ghannoum has continued to translate his cutting edge research in the microbiome to other parts of the body, including the gut.
