Probiotics: BiotaGen

BiotaGen
Klaire Labs
$22.95 5.3oz powder

Versatile prebiotic formula to optimize gut microflora, improve bowel function 
and support the immune system.

BiotaGen is a distinctive formulation of soluble dietary fiber with prebiotic 
activities that stimulates growth of colonic populations of beneficial bacteria 
and enhances gastrointestinal and systemic immune function in multiple ways. 
BiotaGen combines chicory inulin and oligofructose, highly effective 
prebiotics, with the immunomodulating actions of larch arabinogalactan and 
purified yeast beta-glucan.

Chicory-derived inulin and oligofructose are inulin-type fructans best known 
for their ability to sustain increases in populations of Bifidobacterium, 
Lactobacillus, and Eubacterium, an important butyrate-producing species 
indigenous to the bowel. By escaping digestion and absorption in the small 
intestine, inulin-type fructans arrive largely intact in the colon where they 
selectively feed beneficial gut microbiota. In addition, inulin-type fructans 
promote normal colon transit times, enhance absorption of calcium and 
magnesium, favorably modulate lipid levels, improve gut mucosal barrier and 
immune function, regulate intestinal epithelial cell growth, and reduce the 
number of potentially harmful bacterial species.

Arabinogalactan, a polysaccharide derived from the Western Larch tree, is a 
highly soluble dietary fiber that enhances immune function by promoting 
cytokine production and increasing the number of natural killer cells. 
Indigestible by human enzymes, arabinogalactan exerts prebiotic properties 
including the ability to selectively stimulate Lactobacillus species. 
Arabinogalactan is metabolized to short-chain fatty acids acetate, butyrate, 
and propionate and reduces ammonia production.

Beta-glucan, a glucose polysaccharide prebiotic fiber, has broad, beneficial 
effect on immune function through enhancement of monocytes, macrophages, and 
natural killer cells. Beta-glucan stimulates immune response to a wide spectrum 
of pathogens, including fungal (Candida albicans), Gram-positive 
(Staphylococcus aureus), and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) microorganisms.

BiotaGen is recommended to nutritionally support optimal gastrointestinal 
function, promote populations of healthful colonic bacteria, and enhance 
gastrointestinal and systemic immune function. BiotaGen® works synergistically 
with probiotics to assure intestinal microflora balance. Available in both 
powder and vegetarian capsule form.

Unique Properties
Patient One SlimOne™ unites today’s most dynamic natural ingredients in a breakthrough medinutritional supplement for healthy weight management. With CLA, 7-Keto®, Razberi-K®, and green coffee bean extract, SlimOne supplies advanced nutritional support for desirable body composition, peak metabolic performance, blood sugar support, fat metabolism and more. When used in conjunction with healthy diet and exercise program, Patient One SlimOne helps to maximize weight management results. SlimOne has been carefully formulated to include only gentle, stimulant-free and effective nutrients.

Key Ingredients

CLA:
An omega-6 fatty acid found in grass-fed beef and vegetable oils, CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is among the most extensively studied weight management nutrients. While its exact mechanisms of action have not been pinpointed, CLA is believed to inhibit the “hunger hormone” leptin, promote lipolysis in white adipose tissue, influence insulin sensitivity, reduce fasting blood glucose and optimize resting metabolic rate. CLA is most commonly associated with lean body mass and healthy body composition.

7-Keto® DHEA
Produced by the adrenal glands, Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) hormone starts to decline around age 30, and has been implicated in metabolic slow-down and age-related weight gain. Restoring DHEA through supplementation is believed to promote a youthful hormonal state that is associated with optimal metabolic rate. 7-Keto DHEA is derived from a plant source that has been purified to match the substance naturally produced in the body. Studies suggest that 7-Keto improves the body’s calorie burning ability at the most basic level by increasing resting metabolic rate—the number of calories burned through regular bodily functions such as breathing. 7-Keto is the weight management metabolite of DHEA–a gentler and safer form that supplies nutritional benefits without influencing testosterone or estrogen levels.

Razberi-K® raspberry ketones
Organic phenolic compounds found in raspberries, ketones are believed to optimize breakdown of fat in the body while promoting peak metabolic function. Some early animal research appears to suggest that raspberry ketones may influence the way lipids are metabolized in fat cells; specifically, raspberry ketones are believed to optimize the breakdown of white adipose tissue. Raspberry ketones have also been found to stimulate the secretion of adiponectin, a hormone that regulates fat storage. Research shows a link between higher levels of adiponectin and lower levels of stored fat.

Green Coffee Bean Extract
Unroasted coffee beans retain their green hue and supply bioactive compounds called chlorogenic acids (CGAs) that are usually destroyed in the coffee bean roasting process. The CGAs found in green coffee beans are believed to promote healthy weight management by influencing sugar metabolism. Research has suggested that CGAs may inhibit the hepatic glucose-6-phosphatase enzyme, thereby modulating glucose production and promoting the blood sugar stability that is associated with healthy weight. SlimOne’s green coffee bean extract is standardized to 50% minimum CGAs.
Research
In one study, 20 men and women took either a CLA supplement (0.6mg) or placebo daily while exercising in standardized 90-minute routines three times weekly. After 12 weeks, researchers reported that body fat was found to be significantly reduced in the CLA group, but not in the placebo group.
In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate long-term effects of CLA supplementation, 180 volunteers took CLA-free fatty acid (FFA), CLA- triacylglycerol, or placebo over the course of one year. At the study’s end, researchers concluded that supplementation with either the FFA or triacylglycerol form of CLA was associated with significant reductions in body fat mass (BFM) and a tendency towards greater lean body mass.

An early study has suggested that 7-Keto may help with resting metabolic rate of overweight adults. In the study, which included 40 subjects, supplementation with 7-Keto was found to significantly increase resting metabolic rate above basal levels in only seven days. Researchers suggested 7-Keto may benefit overweight individuals with low energy expenditure.
