Specialized enzymes and EDTA disrupt biofilm matrix embedding potential gastrointestinal pathogens. This unique enzyme formulation has the addition of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). The presence of calcium, iron, and magnesium is essential for biofilm creation and serves to cross-link the anionic regions for polymers. GastroClear includes EDTA, which binds the metals needed for biofilm formation. Biofilm consists of microorganisms encased within a self-produced matrix of exopolysaccharides and exoproteins that strongly adheres to interfaces and resists dislodgement.
Microorganisms residing within biofilms are highly resistant to antimicrobials including antibiotics and bacteriocins produced by probiotics. GastroClear is a unique enzyme formulation with EDTA that is specially designed to disrupt the biofilm matrix that embeds potential gastrointestinal pathogens. The enzymes selected for this formulation are chosen for their ability to lyse the extracellular polymers commonly found in biofilm as well as degrade bacterial and yeast cell wall structures. GastroClear is intended for use with our Megabiotic formula to encourage the formation of healthy intestinal biofilm communities.
