PHOENIX, April 5, 2022 – PanTheryx, an integrative digestive and immune health company, today announced the expansion of its formulation capabilities to now include colostrum plus probiotic combination products for adult and children’s dietary supplements. PanTheryx’s new formulation capability provides manufacturers with the ability to confidently create combination products with colostrum and highly efficacious probiotics, such as Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12®, Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG®‡, Lactobacillus plantarum HEAL9, Lactobacillus paracasei 8700:2 and B subtilis DE111® strains.
“We worked diligently over the past year to explore ways to create colostrum and probiotic formulations that combine clinically proven probiotics with colostrum in easy to take capsules. Colostrum is an ideal partner for probiotics since it can promote the growth and colonization of these beneficial microbial strains, creating powerful synbiotic combinations. We are proud to be able to offer this capability to dietary supplement manufacturers, so they can create new digestive and immune health duo products,” said Mike Weiser, PhD, senior director of innovation and R&D, PanTheryx. “We look forward to continuing to explore new ways to innovate products for our ColostrumOne bovine (cow) colostrum ingredient offering.”
Colostrum and Probiotics
There are several reasons why cow colostrum and probiotics create a gut-healthy combo. The immunoglobulins, specifically IgG, in colostrum can regulate the microbiome and strengthen gut lining integrity to create better probiotic colonization. In addition, cow colostrum’s lactoferrin can prevent the growth of bacteria, but not probiotics, promoting better colonization of the probiotics. Research has shown that colostrum’s oligosaccharides feed bifidobacteria, which are important early colonizers of the microbiome.
“There is a synergistic relationship between probiotics and colostrum. When you combine the two most clinically studied types of good bacteria—Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus—as well as Bacillus spores with cow colostrum’s prebiotic function as a food source for probiotics, the body’s digestive and immune systems should be able to function at as high a level as intended,” commented Michael Roizen, M.D., chief wellness officer emeritus at the Cleveland Clinic and member of PanTheryx’s medical advisory board. “I look forward to seeing new probiotic combination products that leverage the latest digestive health research to deliver fresh nutritional options for consumers.”
PanTheryx’s new probiotic formulations can be applied to dietary supplements.
