Over 100 trillion bacteria inhabit your digestive tract. Some are beneficial and essential to life and some are harmful (pathogenic). When beneficial bacteria predominate, they counteract harmful bacteria to try to guard your body.
Seigen supports your digestive system through biofermentics – an elaborate food fermentation process using soy milk and yeasts as a medium. This process produces postbiotics which regulate and maintain your intestinal flora in an optimal state of functionality. As your body ages, enzyme production slows considerably; therefore enzyme supplementation becomes increasingly important. Seigen is a rich source of naturally occurring enzymes, which assists with the proper digestion of food. Once in balance, your intestines are equipped to combat intestinal problems, such as indigestion, diarrhea, constipation and heartburn.
Immunity means having sufficient biological defenses to avoid infection, loss of colonization resistance or other damaging biological invasion. Humans are naturally equipped with an elaborate defense system known as the immune system, which protects against the constant invasion of harmful microorganisms. Germs are everywhere in the air, water, earth and environment in which we live. They are unrelenting in their attempt to enter your body and multiply, while your immune system puts up a heroic struggle to prevent them from imposing damage.
Increasing the number of lactic acid bacteria in your intestines is one good way to increase the strength and effectiveness of your immune system. Therefore, you might assume that swallowing a bunch of lactic acid bacteria will put you on the road to health, right? Well, not exactly. Lactic acid bacteria are easily destroyed by stomach acids, so no matter how many you swallow, nearly all of them will be destroyed before they make it to the intestines.
Seigen modulates the microbial ecology of the gut, creating colonization resistance, boosting gastrointestinal immunity and promoting the growth of favorable bacterial populations, such as bifidobacteria, in the colon. Bifidobacteria may inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria, such as Clostridium perfringens and diarrheagenic strains of E. Coli.
