IgY Max contains antibodies that target and neutralize (aka, kill) 29 harmful microbes commonly found in the human gut microbiome, including Klebsiella pneumoniae, E. Coli, Salmonella, Shigella, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, various strains of Staphylococcus and Streptococcus, and more.

If you’ve taken the Diagnostics Solutions GI Map Stool test, you’ll recognize these pathogens from your test results.

You might be saying – hold on – what’s an antibody?

An antibody is a protein that tracks down and kills invaders in the body. They’re used in several different types of medications that fight infection. Pretty cool, right?

Once consumed, IgY Max® antibodies make their way through the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract, killing each targeted harmful microbe and suppressing colonies as they go. The neutralized (aka, dead) harmful microbes are expelled from the gut through the stool (poop!).

IgY Max antibodies’ elimination of harmful microbes in the gut allows beneficial microbes to flourish, which restores microbial diversity to the microbiome and rebalances it.

This positive shift in microbiome composition supports your health in a major way. First and most importantly, it stops the damage the harmful microbes were causing. Second off, it amplifies the benefits helpful microbes confer, simply because there’s more of them around to lend a helping hand.

University-led studies of IgY Max confirm that consumers’ beneficial flora, gut barrier integrity, and inflammation levels improved significantly over eight weeks of use.

For our science nerds out there, the participants’ levels of the following biomarkers improved:

  • Inflammatory cytokines
  • High-sensitivity C-reactive protein
  • Helpful bacteria counts in the stool
  • Zonulin
  • Histamine
  • Diamine oxidase

Perhaps most importantly, participants’ symptoms improved upon use. Consumers report a decrease in symptoms of dysbiosis following consistent consumption, including:

  • improved stool regularity and composition
  • decreased bloating and gas
  • higher energy levels

Though unofficial, the abundance of positive Amazon reviews describing users’ alleviation of symptoms is a telling indicator of IgY Max®’s power to benefit consumers as well.

The Takeaway

For a healthy microbiome, you want plenty of helpful microbes and very few harmful microbes in the gut. Dysbiosis is characterized by too many harmful microbes and not enough beneficial microbes. Dysbiosis can lead to pesky digestive symptoms, gut damage, and inflammation.

Whether you’re trying to overcome dysbiosis or improve your microbiome generally, the goal is always the same: to reduce harmful microbes and support your helpful microbes.

You can support helpful microbes with pre and probiotics, but eliminating their competition – harmful microbes – is much more effective.

Removing the harmful microbes living in your gut microbiome with antibodies targeted to neutralize (kill) them – found in IgY Max – allows good microbes to flourish, restoring a healthy balance to your microbiome and defeating dysbiosis.

Equipped with antibodies that clear out dysbiotic pathogens, you’ll be on a path to digestive health in no time. Tag us on Instagram at @igynutrition to let us know how your digestive health journey is going!
