Benefits of Ganeden BC30

GanedenBC30 is a natural probiotic (“beneficial bacteria”) ingredient added to many foods, beverages and nutritional products to help support digestive and immune health*.

The effects of GanedenBC30 with protein were examined in a randomized double blind

crossover clinical trial on key amino acids including leucine (the regulator for muscle

protein synthesis), isoleucine and valine (branched chain amino acids), as well as

histidine, alanine, asparagines, citrulline, cystine, glutamine (a key amino acid for

supporting ph balance and the immune system), methionine, ornthinine, serine,

threonine, tryptophan and phenylalanine. Raw data indicated that GandenBC30 had a

positive effect (increases) on the absorption of a number of these key amino acids:

Leucine by 23%, Isoluecine by 20%, Valine by 7%, Glutamine by 116%, Ornithine by

100%, Tryptophan by 100% and Citrulline by 128%.

Why is increased absorption of key amino acids important?

» Increased levels of glutamine have been shown to slow degradation of muscle protein and supports immune system and gut integrity from the exercise-induced stress.

» Leucine is the only dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and has been found to slow the degradation of muscle tissue by increasing the synthesis of muscle proteins. Leucine has recently earned more attention as a catalyst for muscle growth and muscular insurance.

» Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained through diet. It functions as a biochemical precursor for niacin, an essential human vitamin, and serotonin, an important neurotransmitter.

Dr. Ralf Jager, President of Increnovo LLC, certified sports nutritionist, and Fellow of the International Society of Sports Nutrition stated that “Improved protein utilization might benefit people supplementing their diets with protein such as athletes trying to increase pre-workout effect on muscle protein synthesis, or people trying to balance the loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength associated with aging.” Jager adds, “Previously considered inferior protein sources which are naturally lower in leucine such as soy or rice, might specifically benefit from GanedenBC30, giving athletes with allergies against lactose or who are cautious about cholesterol a valuable alternative to whey protein.”

What’s Unique about GanedenBC30

The composition differentiates itself from other probiotics with its ability to survive manufacturing processes, shelf life, stomach acids and intestinal bile.  This allows GanedaBC30 to be incorporated into a variety of foods ranging from frozen yogurt and baked goods to hot cereals and confections.  The utility of GanendenBC30 can be linked to it naturally occurring layer of organic material that protects the genetic core of the bacteria.  Other probiotics, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, are unable to form this protective layer, making them more vulnerable to manufacturing conditions.
