Yourgutplus+ Gut Health Support
- Created in May 2020 for the UK national Covid-19 dietary intervention study
- Enhance bacterial gut health
- Enhance oxidative defences
- Reduce excess chronic inflammation
YourGutPlus+ supplements were created in May 2020 for the UK national Covid-19 dietary intervention study.
It is made up of a specialised blend of 5 different butyrate enhancing lactobacillus probiotic bacteria, and supported by an effective probiotic. This blend is scientifically selected to encourage healthy bacterial growth. It also contains a healthy amount of vitamin D3.
YourGutPlus+ Bacterial Cultures:
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus bulgaricus
- Lactococcus lactis
- Lactobacillus paracasei
- Includes Vitamin D3 (800iu per serving).
Capsule: Patented vegetarian capsule made from plant based hypromellose and gellan gum.
To note - daily intake of phytochemical rich foods such as certain teas, fruits and herbs have been linked with multiple health benefits, particularly:
- reducing chronic degenerative disease,
- enhancing oxidative defences and
- reducing excess chronic inflammation.
These foods enhance bacterial gut health, especially if combined with other lifestyle strategies and regular intake of probiotic bacteria – important for an efficient immunity and other biological functions in the body.
1. What is a delayed release capsule?
The vegetable based capsule which carries the ingredients is designed to resist the acid in the stomach allowing the healthy bacteria to pass into the remaining gut where they are most needed.
2. What other lifestyle and dietary factors can also effect gut health?
Taking this probiotic is not just the only thing which helps improve the profile of healthy to unhealthy bacteria in the gut. Try to stop smoking, exercise more, reduce processed sugar intake, eat something with live probiotic bacteria every day such as kefir, sauerkraut and foods which help feed these bacteria such as fruit, fibre, vegetables, mushrooms and beans.
3. What is the evidence that gut health is impaired after COVID?
Depleted healthy strains of commensal bacteria such as Lactobacillus have been reported in the majority of patients with COVID expressing Gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and especially those with persistent ongoing problems, coined long or chronic COVID
4. What is the evidence linking the lactobacillus helps with COVID?
The Kings App study, which recorded habits of over 450,000 people over the last 2 years established a link between people who took probiotics and a lower risk of COVID: Link here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33741586/
The Bedford and Cambridge study reported a significant approximately three fold improvement in symptoms in participants with acute and long term COVID - Link here: https://www.gavinpublishers.com/article/view/the-influence-of-a-blend-of-probiotic-lactobacillus-and-prebiotic-inulin-on-the-duration-and-severity-of-symptoms-among-individuals-with-covid-19
5. Did yourgutplus+ plus help everyone on the study?
In the formal trial, published in January 2020, the rate and degree of improvement was approximately three times greater than expected without it. Not everybody responded and a minority with severe long COVID did not improve in the time frame of the study but most continued to take both supplements going forward. It seemed to benefit most participants but men, older people, those with a history of indigestion and those who did not exercise very much seemed to get a particular good benefit.
6. Is it safe to take this probiotic in the long term?
This lactobacillus blend was specifically chosen with long term safety in mind. Patients in the study did not report any problems taking it for several months. We cannot foresee and issues in taking it continually at these doses (2 a day). Although it’s normal to have some increased gas or bloating for a few days after starting, this should settle and bowel symptoms normally then improve. In the very unlikely event that a person experiences excess gas or bloating after taking yourgutplus+ for several months then it would be sensible to have a two week break before continuing.
7. Is there evidence that probiotics help other conditions?
Excess chronic inflammation of the gut wall caused by too many pro-inflammatory (bad) bacteria over time will thin and damage the integrity of the gut wall. This leads, not only to an increase in conditions of the gut such as irritable bowel, ulcers, cancer and food intolerances, it leads to an increased risk of multiple chronic conditions throughout the body ranging from fatigue, poor exercise performance, arthritis, high cholesterol, low mood and dementia
