At Black Forest, we view obesity and weight gain not as inevitable life occurrences, but as health challenges that can be effectively managed and overcomed.
After meticulously reviewing the most recent scientific studies, engaging in insightful discussions with esteemed consultants from Ivy League institutions, and conducting in-depth case studies with fitness enthusiasts and bodybuilders, we are confident in asserting that the common issues associated with obesity - such as gut health deterioration, energy depletion, and overall physical performance decline - can be significantly alleviated by harnessing the power of our new supplement Akkermansia Muciniphila with FOS.
I. The Science Behind AKKERMANSIA: The Best Weight Management & Gut Health Supplement
At Black Forest, we've drawn inspiration from the groundbreaking work of leading scientists in the field of gut microbiome and metabolic health to develop our latest product
What Is Akkermansia?
Akkermansia Muciniphila is a type of beneficial bacteria that naturally resides in the human gut and plays a crucial role in maintaining weight management and overall gut health. Numerous scientific studies have provided evidence supporting these claims.
Research has shown that Akkermansia Muciniphila plays an important role in the regulation of host metabolic processes associated with metabolic disorders. Its ability to reduce gut permeability has been identified as a major mechanism by which it regulates host metabolism.
Why Is It ESSENTIAL?
Numerous studies have shown that a lack or decreased abundance of this commensal bacterium was linked with various health issues. Lack of Akkermansia Muciniphila in the gut has associated with obesity, diabetes, inflammation, and metabolic disorders.
Akkermansia's Role On Our Bodies
Akkermansia also plays an important role in the mucus layer renewal, acting as a modulator for gut health. Studies have evaluated the effect of Akkermansia Muciniphila on health status, intestinal integrity, immune response, lipid metabolism, and gut microbial composition, further highlighting its potential benefits. Hence why it’s called “The Gatekeeper of the Gut”
To put it simply, Akkermansia plays a crucial role in maintaining our weight and overall gut health. It helps regulate our body's metabolism and strengthens the lining of our gut. Studies have shown that a lack of this bacteria can lead to health issues like obesity and diabetes. By helping to renew the mucus layer in our gut, it acts as a gatekeeper, maintaining the health and balance of our gut environment.
II. Akkermansia Muciniphila: The Gatekeeper of Gut Health & Weight Management
"We reasoned that a decrease in Akkermansia Muciniphila levels disrupts the balance of the gut microbiome, leading to weight gain and metabolic disorders," said Patrice D. Cani, Ph.D., a leading researcher in the field of gut microbiome and metabolic health.
To test this premise, scientists used a supplement containing Akkermansia Muciniphila, previously shown to play a crucial role in improving gut health and managing weight.
III. How we get Fat and why we don’t have to
In a series of studies, researchers have found that an imbalance in our gut microbiome, specifically a decrease in beneficial bacteria like Akkermansia Muciniphila, can lead to weight gain and metabolic disorders.
When the population of Akkermansia Muciniphila in our gut decreases, it disrupts the balance of our gut environment, affecting our body's ability to process nutrients and manage weight. Issues that result from this imbalance include increased inflammation, poor nutrient absorption, and an increase in body fat 6.
IV. Graphic on the Role of Akkermansia Muciniphila in Gut Health and Weight Management
As the population of Akkermansia Muciniphila decreases, studies find, so does our body's ability to manage weight, leading to an increase in body fat and a decrease in overall health.
The decline in Akkermansia Muciniphila in our gut is contributing to our weight gain. Luckily, we have the perfect solution to keep the population of this beneficial bacteria at optimal levels, just like in our healthier, leaner years…
V. Akkermansia Muciniphila before and after
The first studies with Akkermansia Muciniphila were conducted on mice and showed very promising results such as:
- Mice treated with Akkermansia Muciniphila showed a significant decrease in body weight, body fat, and insulin resistance1.
- The bacterium was found to improve gut barrier function, reducing inflammation and metabolic disorders2.
These promising studies led scientists to start human trials and the results were equally impressive:
- A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study in overweight/obese insulin-resistant volunteers showed that supplementation with Akkermansia Muciniphila improved metabolic profiles by reducing insulin resistance and cholesterol levels3.
- Another study found a negative correlation between Akkermansia Muciniphila abundance and overweight, obesity, untreated type 2 diabetes mellitus, or hypertension4.
- Supplementation with Akkermansia Muciniphila has been associated with improved gut health and weight management5.
I don’t want to bore you with infinite studies on Akkermansia Muciniphila benefits, you get the point. Akkermansia Muciniphila is one of the next breakthrough supplements in the market. Who doesn’t want better gut health, weight management, and overall vitality?
VI. The Problem with Other Akkermansia Muciniphila Brands
Survival Rate: A significant issue with many probiotic supplements is that they fail to ensure the survival of the bacteria during the journey through the harsh environment of the stomach. In fact, studies show that up to 80% of probiotics fail to reach the gut where they are needed.
Growth Environment: Akkermansia Muciniphila requires a specific environment to proliferate. Many companies overlook this fact and fail to provide the necessary ingredients that create the ideal growth environment for Akkermansia Muciniphila.
Fillers and Purity: Due to the cost of producing high-quality Akkermansia Muciniphila supplements, some companies resort to adding fillers to their products. These fillers dilute the effectiveness of the supplement and may even cause unwanted side effects.
VII. The Black Forest Guarantee
- SUPERIOR FORM OF AKKERMANSIA ENHANCED WITH FOS - Not only does our Akkermansia contains a whoping 100 million AFU of Akkermansia muciniphila, we've also supercharged our formula with Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a prebiotic that feeds Akkermansia and encourages akkermansia proliferation throughout the gut microbiome.
- REACH THE GUT 100% GUARANTEED - 80% of probiotics fail to reach the gut, that’s why we encased our Akkermansia in a plant-based, acid-resistant, delayed release capsule so that the strain gets through the stomach acid and reach the gut (where it can do its job) 100% guaranteed.
- SUPPORT A HEALTHY WEIGHT - This targeted Akkermansia formula increases GLP-1 production in our bodies. GLP-1 is a hormone produced in our gut and it is responsible for reducing appetite, increasing the feelings of fullness, and helping maintain healthy blood sugar levels. This results in less sugar cravings and sustained energy throughout the day.
- USA PROUD AND VEGAN SAFE - Black Forest’s Cistanche supplement is manufactured in a GMP Approved Facility and 3rd party tested for safety right here in the USA, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, and Vegan Safe.
