Ganeden probiotic increases protein absorption.

Ganeden Biotech has unveiled findings on protein absorption in combination with the probiotic strain GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086). Data from the study demonstrated that in just two weeks, combining one billion colony forming units (cfus) of GanedenBC30 with one serving of protein per day increases the absorption of 23 important amino acids over the baseline compared to protein without GanedenBC30. The effects of GanedenBC30 with protein were examined in a randomized, double-blind crossover clinical trial on key amino acids, including leucine (the regulator for muscle protein synthesis), isoleucine and valine (branched chain amino acids), as well as histidine, alanine, asparagines, citrulline, cystine, glutamine (a key amino acid for supporting ph balance and the immune system), methionine, ornthinine, serine, threonine, tryptophan and phenylalanine. Raw data indicated that GanedenBC30 produced increased absorption of several of these key amino acids: leucine by 23%, isoluecine by 20%, valine by 7%, glutamine by 116%, ornithine by 100%, tryptphan by 100% and citrulline by 128%.
