Heavy metals are shown to be amongst the worst toxic chemicals. But research also shows the place of probiotics in detoxifying heavy metals. For your consideration: add Bioimmersion’s probiotics. Here’s why.
- Original Synbiotic Formula- one teaspoon daily.
- Supernatant Synbiotic Formula- one capsule daily.
The food and water we consume are often contaminated with a range of chemicals and heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, chromium and mercury, that are associated with numerous diseases. Species such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, present in the mouth, gut, and vagina have the ability to bind and detoxify these metals.
Halttunen et al. (2007) showed that Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species can bind lead and cadmium to their cell surface, and hold on to them through defecation. Singh and Sharma (2010) showed that L. acidophilus was able to bind and remove arsenic from water. Robinson and Tuovinen (1984) demonstrated that L. rhamnosus in yoghurt reduced the bioaccumulation of mercury and arsenic in pregnant women and children. Shrivastava et al. (2003) showed that lactobacilli can transform chromium (CrVI) to its less toxic form (CrIII).

Having both the Supernatant Synbiotic Formula and the Original Synbiotic Formula gives you the option of taking a capsule or a powder. Both formulas provide excellent support for the chelation and detoxification of toxic heavy metals. They both contain multiple, but different, species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. If you want the maximum diversity of species take a capsule of Supernatant in the morning and a teaspoon of Original before bed (or vise versa).
