Bio X4 is a synthetic enzymatic mixture which consists of four active ingredients. These active ingredients include 13 billion CFUs i.e. Colony Forming Units of probiotic bacteria, an enzymatic blend of bromelain and amylase, EGCG i.e. Epigallocatechin Gallate, and a natural extract of Caralluma Fimbriata.
All of these ingredients synergistically work to provide a wide range of health benefits which include improvement of GI functions, suppression of appetite, lipid metabolism, potentiating the natural weight loss mechanism, activity against lactose-intolerance, inflammation, and allergic reactions in the body (full bio x4 review here).
Let’s take a look at how bio x4 works to treat lactose-intolerance and inflammation in an individual.
Role of Bio X4 in Treating Lactose-Intolerance
Lactose-intolerance is a genetic deficiency of an enzyme beta-galactosidase due to which the lactose of milk and other dairy products is not converted into its simplest monosaccharide units i.e. galactose and glucose. When this un-hydrolyzed lactose reaches the large intestine, it goes through bowel-enzyme degradation which causes osmotic diarrhea in an individual (see here).
Hence, those individuals who’re intolerant to lactose suffer from abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, and extreme flatulence after consuming milk or any dairy product. Bio X4 helps in the treatment of lactose intolerance because of its probiotic action.
The probiotic bacteria L. Delbrueckii and S. Thermophilus initiate the synthesis of beta-galactosidase due to which the body starts metabolizing lactose and lactose-intolerance is effectively treated.
A scientific study was conducted in this regard to evaluate the effect of probiotics in treating lactose intolerance. It was a placebo-controlled, randomized, and double-blind study which was conducted in lactose-intolerant individuals. It was a comparative study. Hence, the test subjects were divided into two groups. One group was treated with the probiotic mixture of L. Delbrueckii and S. Thermophilus, whereas, the other group was given placebo. At the end of the study, it was observed that the probiotic-treated group started mild digestion of lactose and there was significant decrease in osmotic diarrheal condition, abdominal discomfort, and flatulence. No such results were observed in placebo-treated group .
Role of Bio X4 in Treating Inflammatory Reactions
The major ingredient of Bio X4 which helps against inflammation is caralluma fimbriata. Caralluma fimbriata decreases the inflammatory reaction caused due to different diseases like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis by increasing the levels of omega-9 fatty acids. Omega-9 fatty acids have special anti-inflammatory properties and they decrease the pain and inflammation caused due to an injury or disease.
Moreover, these fatty acids also possess anti-oxidant properties. Anti-oxidants are those agents which target and kill the harmful free radicals in the body. These free radicals form unwanted bonds with the healthy body cells and cause their destruction. This unnatural cell death is harmful for the proper functioning of the body organs and increases the aging process. Hence, by killing these free radicals, caralluma fimbriate also works as an effective anti-aging agent.
What Can We Conclude?
It can be concluded that Bio X4 can be used as an effective agent for the treatment of inflammatory reactions and lactose-intolerance. However, it’s recommended to start the therapy after proper recommendation from a registered medical practitioner in order to ensure maximum safety of the patient.
