How do you ensure the quality of the strains in BIOHM?
In order to ensure that BIOHM has the highest of standards when it comes to both the science and quality, Dr. Ghannoum's team acquired the bacterial and fungal strains in BIOHM from the American Type Culture Collection (the ATCC). The ATCC is considered the gold standard in the scientific community when it comes to sourcing microorganisms.
Founded in 1925, the ATCC focuses on the acquisition, authentication, production, preservation, development and distribution of standard reference microorganisms and cell lines for research and development.
While Dr. Ghannoum's laboratory has a collection of over 30,000 strains of fungi (the largest collection in the United States outside the Centers for Disease Control), on the rare occasion he does not have a particular strain needed for a study, the ATCC is one of the first places he turns to in order to acquire the needed microorganism.
How do I know BIOHM cultures are alive when they reach my gut?
To ensure that BIOHM cultures are alive when they reach your digestive tract, an enteric coating is applied directly on the probiotic powder during the manufacturing process, which protects the cultures as they make the harsh journey into your gut. BIOHM’s jar was also created out of heat-resistant resin, in order to protect the cultures from the time they leave our manufacturing facility until they arrive at your door. Thus, they also do not need to be refrigerated.
Why only 30 billion live active strains?
All you have to do is look around to see other probiotics out there claiming more live active strains is better. So you might be wondering, why would BIOHM only contain 30 billion live active strains? Very simply, the answer is because that is the amount Dr. Ghannoum’s team determined to be the specific amount needed for optimal performance. When it comes to probiotics, more active cultures isn’t necessarily better.
How often should I use the colon cleanser?
We recommend using the cleanser at a maximum once a month, but not more frequently.
How strong is the colon cleanser? Will I be strapped to a toilet?
While we don’t suggest a long-haul flight while using it, our colon cleanser is a mild, all-natural cleanser, so you should feel minimal side effects while it works its magic.
Should I be taking the colon cleanse, prebiotic and probiotic together?
We suggest first using the colon cleanser for 7 days and then starting the prebiotic and probiotic.
Why should I take both the pre and probiotic at the same time?
Our prebiotic and probiotic work best together. The prebiotic nourishes your gut, while our probiotic sustains it, so your gut stays optimized.
Can I take the prebiotic and probiotic separately?
Absolutely! These supplements are designed to work best when taken together, but you can certainly take them separately depending on your needs.
