Microbiome Plus+ Heart Probiotic supports healthy cholesterol and triglycerides, normal inflammatory response, healthy blood pressure, and healthy bile metabolism.
I have been taking this for just a couple weeks and my cholesterol and triglyceride numbers are the best they have ever been. My doctor has me on 3 different cholesterol medicines and we could not get my cholesterol numbers under control. I am terrible about which is which, LDL/HDL, so anyways my high numbers were always over 330. After taking this for 1 week I had blood work done and it is down to 224. I think it will just keep falling, or I should say I hope it does.
With my fibromyalgia I have lots of other things wrong with it. One is IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrone. As you can image it can be miserable. This medicine has helped to keep me regulated. That is a huge plus for anyone with fibromyalgia and all the different medicines we take.
Microbiome Plus+ Heart Probiotic is a complete heart health dietary supplement that provides the full American Heart Association daily dietary recommendation of omega-3 which may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease plus the probiotic L. reuteri NCIMB 30242, which supports normal cholesterol levels and inflammatory response.
I found this on WebMD HERE about Omega-3:
Omega-3 fatty acids are thought to help reduce the risk of heart disease and also to promote healthy skin. They are also used along with diet and exercise to help lower levels of a certain blood fat (triglyceride) and to raise levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL). This product may also be used to help treat high blood pressure or rheumatoid arthritis.
I also found this HERE where the source is American Heart Association about a study they did:
The study involved 127 adult patients with high cholesterol. About half the participants took L. reuteri NCIMB 30242 twice a day, while the rest were given placebo capsules.
Those taking the probiotic had LDL levels 11.6 percent lower than those on placebo after nine weeks. Furthermore, cholesterol esters were reduced by 6.3 percent and cholesterol ester saturated fatty acids by 8.8 percent, compared with the placebo group.
For the first time, research shows that the probiotic formulation can reduce cholesterol esters “and in particular reduce the cholesterol esters associated with ‘bad’ saturated fatty acids in the blood,” said Jones, co-founder and chief science officer of Micropharma, the company that formulated the probiotic.
Furthermore, people taking the probiotic had total cholesterol reduced by 9.1 percent. HDL “good” cholesterol and blood triglycerides, a dangerous form of fat in the blood, were unchanged.
Scientists have proposed that Lactobacillus bacteria alone may impact cholesterol levels in several ways, including breaking apart molecules known as bile salts. L. reuteri NCIMB 30242 was fermented and formulated to optimize its effect on cholesterol and bile salts.
Based on correlations between LDL reduction and bile measurements in the gut, the study results suggest the probiotic broke up bile salts, leading to reduced cholesterol absorption in the gut and less LDL.
Since this product is both a probiotic and omega-3 supplement I can see where they state their benefits as:
- COMBAT HEART DISEASE – Omega-3 essential fatty acids are a critical nutrient in the fight against heart disease. Improve and maintain heart health with your daily recommended intake of omega-3 and probiotics to reduce risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.
HEALTHY BLOOD PRESSURE & CHOLESTEROL – Plaque buildup in arteries increases risk of cardiac events like heart attack and stroke. Omega-3 fatty acids lower triglyceride (blood fat) levels and support healthy blood pressure and normal inflammatory responses.
DIGESTION & IMMUNE SUPPORT – Immune support starts in the gut, where the gastrointestinal tract begins the process of nutrient absorption. Probiotics restore bacteria for optimal immune and digestive health, helping to control yeast and candida growth.
INCREASE GOOD BACTERIA, DECREASE BAD BACTERIA – Probiotics help maintain healthy a bacterial balance that works to prevent stomach disease and maintain immune health. Allergies, bloating, gas, and constipation controlled on daily basis with healthy bile metabolism.
SUPPORT HEART & STOMACH – Microbiome Plus+ Heart strengthens cardiovascular health with high-quality omega-3 essential fatty acids and probiotics for a complete microbiome environment throughout the digestive system.
I will continue to take this medicine and update this at my next blood test.
Thanks for stopping by, I received this product to give my honest opinion.
