Yeast Defeat™ offers a functional approach to achieving and maintaining balance in gastrointestinal flora, a primary component of GI health. The complementary blend of ingredients is formulated to support antioxidant activity, microbial balance, and gastrointestinal function.*
Origanox™†WS The water-soluble form of Origanox (Origanox WS) is a natural plant extract from the edible herb Origanum vulgare (oregano). Essential oils and phytonutrients from oregano, including rosmarinic acid and quercetin, have been studied closely for their role in supporting antioxidant mechanisms and healthy microbial balance in the body.[2,3] The ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) value of Origanox is 5,800 units per gram. The ORAC scale, developed by scientists at the National Institute of Aging, is a measure of the scavenging capacity of antioxidants against free radicals that cause
Sodium Caprylate, a derivative of caprylic acid, is a medium-chain fatty acid with a long research history. Research indicates that it has the potential to support healthy microbial balance in the intestines without adversely affecting beneficial GI flora. Studies also suggest that it may have direct effects on cellular integrity and growth, further supporting gastrointestinal health.*[5,6]
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) plays an important role in Yeast Defeat™, offering support for gastrointestinal, immune, and antioxidant systems.[7-9] Ginger has been used for centuries for support of normal gastric function and activity.*
Turmeric Extract Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been used historically to support normal muscular contraction/relaxation and digestion. This ancient herb is rich in curcumin, which has been researched considerably for its protective effects,[10,11] as well as its ability to support healthy cytokine balance.[12,13] The addition of turmeric to Yeast Defeat™ provides additional support for GI function and balance.*
Olive Leaf Extract from the traditional medicinal plant Olea europaea is known for its array of healthful attributes, including support for immune and antioxidant activities. While studying the attributes of olive leaf, scientists in the late 19th century isolated oleuropein, which is converted in the body to the active component elenolic acid. By the late 1960s, research focused on the role of both oleuropein and elenolic acid. Oleuropein and rutin in olive leaf may contribute to maintaining healthy gastrointestinal microflora. Olive leaf extract in Yeast Defeat™ is standardized to 20% oleuropein, while less concentrated formulas are standardized to as little as 6% oleuropein.*
Yeast Defeat™ is a comprehensive formula designed to support GI tract health and microflora balance while concurrently supporting antioxidant systems and tissue health.*
