The microbiome consists of up to 1000 different species of bacteria that reside primarily in our gastrointestinal tract but also populate other mucosal membranes such as the oral cavity, vagina and urethra. Lifestyle, stress, certain medications and dietary factors can upset the delicate balance between beneficial and harmful strains of bacteria and reduce microbial diversity. Imbalanced gut bacteria is often associated with a compromised gut lining and digestive complaints such as bloating, discomfort, cramps and irregular bowel movements; general symptoms including fatigue, poor cognition and low mood can also be symptomatic of gut dysbiosis.

Maintaining a favourable balance of good and bad bacteria is primarily important for digestive function and proper absorption of nutrients. However, the gut also plays a major role in immunity, and the entire system has a complicated relationship with the brain via the ‘gut–microbiota–brain axis'. 

Beneficial bacterial strains can also  reward us with an abundance of valuable metabolites such as vitamins and anti-inflammatory short-chain fatty acids, such as butyrate and propionate, by way of a mutual exchange. 

Supplementing live bacteria is a convenient way to support the gut microbiome. To ensure that the bacteria reach the gut alive and survive the harsh environment of the stomach, Igennus use Lab4 Probiotics® – four clinically researched acid-resistant probiotic strains: Lactobacillus acidophilus CUL60 & CUL21, Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis CUL34 & Bifidobacterium bifidum CUL20. Our daily digestive health supplement Live Cultures+ also provides a natural non-bloating prebiotic and vitamin A to support the integrity of the gut lining.
