"Most people, including many physicians, do not realize that 80% of your immune system is located in your digestive system, making a healthy gut a major focal point if you want to maintain optimal health." - Dr. Joseph Mercola, MD
The microbial environment of the gastrointestinal tract (GI) is important to our immune system. Typically, a healthy person will have a higher amount of good microorganisms to combat any unhealthy organisms in the lower digestive tract. Symptoms occur when there is an overgrowth of harmful organisms compared to beneficial flora.
In a healthy colon, the beneficial bacteria count is up to 100 billion per milliliter. However, in the typical American intestinal tract, that count may be as low as 4 or 5 billion per milliliter.
Symptoms of Gastrointestinal Imbalance
- Indigestion, Loose or Hard Stools
- White Tongue
- High Histamine Response
- Food Sensitivities
- Bloating, Belching, or Excessive Flatulence
- Weak or Cracked Fingernails
- Skin Irritations
Why is Supporting Healthy Gut Function Important to Your Health?
Research shows beneficial flora in the gut promotes the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which are connected with speech, communication, socialization, happy moods, a healthy appetite and feeling satisfied and relaxed! Overuse of antibiotics, food that is not properly digested, high carbohydrate intake, heavy metals, and immune imbalances contribute to dysbiosis in the gut or an overabundance of undesirable gut flora. When there is a significant decrease in beneficial flora and a high level of unfriendly flora in the gut, this can create imbalance in the body, inhibit proper nutrient absorption from food and trigger an immune response.

Healthy Gut Function and Detoxification
Imbalances in the gut contribute to congestion in the liver. Intestinal dysbiosis down regulates hepatic efflux pump activity and impairs phase I and II detoxification pathway in the liver, increasing oxidative stress. Simply put, if your gut is out of balance, you will not detoxify toxins efficiently.
Supporting your GI tract with a probiotic lysate like CytoFlora® is a fast and efficient way to decrease harmful organisms and strengthen your gut lining. CytoFlora® is a dietary supplement in which the cell wall of beneficial probiotics have been decimated. This decimation process releases vital substances and nutrients from the cell wall and cytoplasm directly into the lysate solution.
CytoFlora® balances intestinal dysbiosis by pushing unhealthy gut flora out of the gastrointestinal tract and colon; creating an environment for healthy intestinal flora to colonize and thrive. It helps reestablish healthy cross-talk between the gut and brain, most noticing improvements within 48 hours.
CytoFlora® Health Benefits
- Improves healthy bowel, gut and immune function
- Increases communication and speech
- Amplifies sociability, cognitive awareness and moods
Scientific Research on CytoFlora®
In a 35-day study with ten children, Immunobilan testing by Red Laboratories measured immunoglobulins A (IgA) and M (IgM), two antibodies that a play critical role in healthy immune response. Baseline results showed significantly elevated IgA and IgM levels, signifying an immune response to unhealthy gut flora. Recent advances in our capability to identify microbes and their function offer exciting opportunities to evaluate the complex cross talk between microbiota, intestinal barrier, immune system and the gut-brain axis.
Study Participants Report
Behavioral and Cognitive Improvements
- More socially engaged
- Deeper level of functional communication: verbal and nonverbal
- Improved concentration and behavior
- Improved comprehension

- Emotional stability; happy moods
"Grasps academic concepts quicker such as telling time."
"Is less distressed, more cheerful about her existence. She laughs more and smiles more."
- Bowel motility improved
- Improved appetite
- Skin issues resolved
- Dark circles under the eyes decreased
- Gas and bloating decreased
- Activity levels increased
- A decrease in hyperactivity and aggression
"Bowels the best they've been since infancy."
"Been thrilled with reduction of bloating, as well as the increase in her bowel movements."
At completion of the study, immunobilan results revealed a 55% overall decrease in IgA levels indicating improved GI balance and a 27% decrease in IgM levels which represents leaky gut. After 21 days on CytoFlora®, ATEC scores, which measures Communication, Sociability, Cognitive Awareness, and Health/Physical/Behavior, indicated a 30% overall improvement.
"We see many patients in our laboratory with elevated IgA and IgM. Most of them don't see results for eight months. The CytoFlora® results represent the first time I have seen this kind of decrease in IgA and IgM in only a few short weeks." - Craig Setter of VIP Dx Laboratory
