About GutMagnific® www.GutMagnific.com

GutMagnific® is a super-consortium of five probiotic strains scientifically designed to address the underlying key causes of IBS. It is a patented combination of proprietary lactobacillus strains and is sold as a probiotic food supplement supported by clinical data. GutMagnific® has potential application in several severe and prevalent conditions such as IBS, diarrhea, antibiotic induced diarrhea, Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). Is has also the ability to target symptoms such as leaky gut and small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).

GutMagnific® is currently evaluated in a randomized, double blinded, placebo controlled, 3-arm clinical trial in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) also called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or post-viral fatigue. The trial is a collaboration with the ME/CFS clinic, Neurological Rehabilitation Clinic, Stora Sköndal, Stockholm, associated with Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. As some 70% of ME/CFS patient also suffers from IBS, the hypothesis of the trial is that if the IBS can be ameliorated by GutMagnific® then the ME symptoms could also be improved.
