For whom is OMNi-LOGiC® PLUS suitable?
An imbalance of specific intestinal bacteria can lead to the increased occurrence of inflammations in the intestine, the so-called “silent inflammations”. The microorganisms Akkermansia muciniphila and Faecalibacterium prausnitzii counteract this development: Akkermansia muciniphila is responsible for the production of highly viscous mucous and contributes with this mucus layer to the reinforcement of the intestinal barrier, so that foreign microorganisms as well as harmful substances cannot overcome the intestinal mucosa and get into the bloodstream. Faecalibakterium prausnitzii, on the other hand, is able to produce special fatty acids, among others butyric acid (= butyrate), which possesses anti-inflammatory properties, but primarily also provides the intestinal mucosa with energy and thus strengthens the “tight junctions”. These are the connection points (membrane proteins) between the cells of the intestinal mucosa that ensure that important nutrients are selected and separated from harmful substances.
Inflammations in the intestine occur frequently in people who are overweight, since inflammatory cytokines are formed by special fat cells in the abdominal region that can harm the entire organism.
