New Clinical Study Shows DIGESTIVE+++ Improves Gut Health
Lake Forest—September 17, 2016—Orange County-based LifePharm® has released data from a new clinical study on their DIGESTIVE+++ supplement. The four-week analysis was performed by Dr. Edward Andujar and Dr. Hitendra Shah at the Wellness Clinic in Diamond Bar, California.

Volunteer subjects consumed two DIGESTIVE+++ capsules and two Laminine® capsules daily for four weeks. Participants were asked to refrain from using other supplements prior to the Wellness Clinic study and provided the doctors with initial baseline stool samples. At the end of the four-week period, participants showed a substantial improvement in several indicators of gut health, most notably an increase in total short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and butyrate production. These serve several important functions to the digestive tract and gut lining.

The conclusive data from the Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (Genova Diagnostics, Asheville, North Carolina) showed a substantial improvement in total Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs).

LifePharm Research Scientist Dr. Edward Andujar commented, “The increase of the SCFAs— particularly butyrate, which is the most beneficial and saw a 28 percent increase in production—is a definite indicator that the gut is reestablishing healthier microbiota. In certain imbalances of the colon and GI tract, butyrate decreases inflammation of the bowel and keeps the cells lining the colon properly nourished. This in turn reduces DNA damage to colon cells, which is very supportive to colon health.”

DIGESTIVE+++ is the proprietary formula of LifePharm, and has been on the market since November 2014. The ingredients in the product contain a specialized prebiotic blend, probiotic and comprehensive enzyme blend to aid in optimal nutrient absorption. Although this is the company’s first clinical study on the DIGESTIVE+++ supplement, there is much research on the beneficial aspects of the individual ingredients. Countless individuals have also provided endorsements revealing their digestion, weight and overall GI health has vastly improved since consuming DIGESTIVE+++.

LifePharm Executive R and D Scientist Kimberly Lloyd M.S. says, “Consuming prebiotics and probiotics such as fructooligosaccharides and Bacillus coagulans, which are found in the DIGESTIVE+++ formula, support many factors relating to gut health. We are very impressed with the results of this initial study, which shows taking DIGESTIVE+++ and Laminine supplements are positively affecting the gut and colon microbiome in only four weeks.”

In addition to DIGESTIVE+++ and Laminine, LifePharm produces two other supplements—OMEGA+++ and IMMUNE+++—exclusively manufactured in the U.S.A. Clinical studies have also been conducted on Laminine and IMMUNE+++ with equally encouraging results.
