BIOHM's formulation is a combination of good bacteria and good fungi infused with a powerful enzyme that breaks through digestive plaque— allowing BIOHM's 30 billion live active cultures to maintain, support, and promote the balance of the total microbiome in the digestive system.
BIOHM Probiotics: Good Bacteria + Good Fungi = Total Gut Balance
BIOHM was created by Dr. Ghannoum, the scientist who named the mycobiome and one of the world's leading experts in medically important fungus and microbiome sequencing. Dr. Ghannoum's scientific research has resulted in over 400 peer reviewed scientific papers, and his publications have been cited over 18,000 times.

Why BIOHM vs. Other Probiotics?
Quite simply, your gut's microbiome contains both bacteria and fungi. However, other probiotics have not been designed to address the role of fungi in digestive balance, just bacteria – only offering a partial solution to total digestive balance. By only concentrating on bacteria, fungi is allowed to flourish unchecked, leading to digestive imbalance. Additionally, no other probiotic has been engineered to break down digestive plaque, which acts as a shield for bad bacteria and fungi in your gut.
Why Should I Care About The Role of Fungi in Digestive Health?
Up until about a decade ago, the scientific community studied microorganisms (like bacteria and fungi) as being completely independent of each other, and mostly from the perspective that they negatively impacted our health and wellness.
In the last few years, researchers have come to realize that microorganisms can play an extremely positive role in health and wellness, hence the emergence of probiotics.
However, one of the most important discoveries has been the relationship between bacteria and fungi in our bodies. Specifically, scientists have found that when one is impacted, it has an effect on the other. This indicates that there is a strong symbiotic relationship between bacteria and fungi, and that they essentially keep each other in check.
The understanding of bacteria and fungi's relationship took a giant step forward, when Dr. Ghannoum's research unearthed the fact that bacteria and fungi actually work together to protect each other, through forming digestive plaque.
THE RESULT? In order to support overall digestive health, we now understand that you have to address both bacteria and fungi.
Why Should I Care About Digestive Plaque?
During Dr. Ghannoum's landmark study on microbial imbalance in people with Crohn's Disease, he discovered that bacteria and fungi work together to build digestive plaque. Digestive plaque acts like a shield over bad bacteria and bad fungi as they work to upset the microbial balance of the digestive system.
Dr. Ghannoum realized that to support overall digestive health and total gut balance, you must be able to break down digestive plaque, allowing good bacteria and fungi to reach bad bacteria and fungi hiding within the plaque.
Disclaimer: Importantly, while Dr. Ghannoum discovered digestive plaque when studying Crohn's Disease, BIOHM is engineered to support general digestive health and maintain total digestive balance, and is not in anyway intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent Crohn's Disease.
How Do I Know BIOHM Cultures Are Alive When They Reach My Gut?
To ensure that BIOHM cultures are alive when they reach your digestive tract, an enteric coating is applied directly on the probiotic powder during the manufacturing process, which protects the cultures as they make the harsh journey into your gut. Additionally, BIOHM's jar was created out of heat-resistant resin, in order to protect the cultures from the time they leave our manufacturing facility, until they arrive at your door.
How Do You Ensure The Quality of The Strains In BIOHM?
In order to ensure that BIOHM was in a class of its own when it came to both the science and quality, Dr. Ghannoum's team acquired the bacterial and fungal strains in BIOHM from the American Type Culture Collection (the ATCC). The ATCC is considered the gold standard in the scientific community when it comes to sourcing microorganisms.
Founded in 1925, the ATCC focuses on the acquisition, authentication, production, preservation, development and distribution of standard reference microorganisms and cell lines for research and development.
While Dr. Ghannoum's laboratory has a collection of over 30,000 strains of fungi (the largest collection in the United States outside the Centers for Disease Control), on the rare occasion he does not have a particular strain needed for a study, the ATCC is one of the first places he turns to in order to acquire the needed microorganism.
Why Only 30 Billion Live Active Strains?
All you have to do is look around to see other probiotics out there claiming more live active strains is better. So you might be wondering, why would BIOHM only contain 30 billion live active strains?
Very simply, the answer is because that is the amount Dr. Ghannoum's team determined to be the specific amount needed for optimal performance. When it comes to probiotics, more active cultures more isn’t necessarily better.
Do I Need To Worry That BIOHM Contains Fillers, Flow Agents, Artificial Colors, or Non-Organic Ingredients?
No. At BIOHM, we've painstakingly formulated our probiotics from the ground up to ensure they only contain the best strains of cultures, enzymes and ingredients available and do not include anything else, period.
BIOHM's capsules are 100% vegetarian and are manufactured in the United States at an FDA-audited facility.
NOTE: At this time we cannot ship outside the US (includes HI and AK). International friends, follow us @biohmhealth for updates.
