Syntol Naturally Dissolves Biofilms
Harmful invaders such as bad bacteria or destructive yeast can quickly multiply in the body when there is an imbalance of digestive enzymes and probiotics (healthy gut bacteria). Syntol is a scientifically supported prebiotic-probiotic blend with digestive enzymes that reinforce an ideal balance of intestinal flora that blocks invader overgrowth [1-4]. The carefully chosen enzymes in Syntol dissolve biofilms that encase foreign invaders, while the probiotics support the cleansing of waste particles once the invaders begin to weaken and die [2, 3].
Candida albicans (C. albicans) is the most common form of harmful yeast linked to health problems when overgrowth occurs . Yeast are naturally found inside the body and help keep intestinal flora in balance under healthy states . Unfortunately, changes that lead to unhealthy states such as a weakened immune system, a poor diet, or taking certain medications (e.g., antibiotics) can cause yeast to shift into a fungal state. Once yeast begin to shift, overgrowth quickly follows unless their biofilms — sticky, protein-based layers that protect them — are destroyed.
Bacteria also have protective biofilms that help them multiply when an intestinal flora imbalance occurs, evade natural immune responses, and even become resistant to certain antibiotics. If the biofilms of harmful yeast and bad bacteria are not quickly dissolved, these invaders can travel through the bloodstream to different areas in the body, including the bladder, urinary tract, vaginal region, and even the skin [6-8].
More specifically, uncontrolled yeast or bacterial overgrowth can spread rapidly and make it almost impossible for the body to regain its balance of intestinal flora naturally. If the overgrowth is not addressed properly or swiftly, various health issues such as digestive, bladder, vaginal, and skin problems may also develop [3, 6, 7, 9]. The invaders may even become resistant to antibiotics or antifungal agents [5, 8]. Fortunately, Syntol helps promote intestinal balance to create an environment that is hard for invaders to thrive in.
Digestive Enzymes Target Biofilms
Syntol contains a combination of enzymes such as serrapeptase, protease, cellulase, hemicellulase, amylase, and glucoamylase that dissolve the protein-based biofilms of foreign invaders. These powerful enzymes promote the complete breakdown of various particles (e.g., protein, fiber, sugar) at a wide range of pH levels in the gastrointestinal tract. These properties make the digestive enzymes beneficial for dissolving the protective biofilms of various microorganisms, including bad bacteria or harmful yeast [1, 2].
This is because the biofilms that help invaders multiply are primarily made up of protein and fiber  — molecules that the blend of the enzymes in Syntol completely dissolve. Once the biofilms begin to break down, the immune system as well as healthy gut bacteria can quickly start to destroy the inner components and cleanse the body of these dangerous invaders [6-8].
Candida is made of chitin why doesn’t Syntol chitinase enzymes?
Certain enzymes dissolve more than just one substrate. Blending different enzymes together creates a myriad of different capabilities. When an enzyme can dissolve more than one component its called (Side activity) or multitasking for lack of a better word.
Chitinase enzymes by itself will not degrade yeast, at least not wholly. It would be like washing your car with water and a sponge but forgetting to use soap. It is much easier to use enzymes that wholly digest yeast biofilms. While yeast has a chitin shell, it is held together with a very complex biofilm structure and requires a very strategic combination of enzymes to dissolve them.
For the mannoproteins in the cell, polypeptide proteins in the biofilm, and the nucleus of the yeast cell you need protease enzymes. Syntol uses a combination of proteases in addition to a very high strength serrapeptase protease.
The glucans and cellulose-chitin found in both the cell wall and biofilm you need cellulase and hemicellulase. Serrapeptase also has a very powerful chitin dissolving activity component.
Beta-glucanase is also very helpful enzyme. Syntol contains a cellulase with a very concentrated beta-glucanase side activity, so you're covered in that respect. The polysaccharides found in both the cell and biofilm can be removed with amylase, invertase and glucoamylase. The fibrinogen, fibronectin and the ligands in the biofilm can be removed with serrapeptase. For the fatty lipids a lipase enzyme would work.
Probiotics Offer Added Cleansing Power
Syntol contains 13.6 billion colony forming units (CFUs) of beneficial probiotics — several of which directly fight invader overgrowth. One particularly efficient strain is Bacillus subtilis or B. subtilis. Research shows that the presence of sufficient B. subtilis levels in the gut disrupts the formation of C. albicans (yeast) biofilms as well as their inner components, making it difficult for harmful yeast to grow and spread .
The probiotics in Syntol are also able to withstand the harsh intestinal environment, where they thrive and block invader overgrowth by utilizing the nutrients and space harmful microorganisms would need to grow [7, 8]. Furthermore, the blend of probiotics produces hydrogen peroxide that reinforces the cleansing of destructive invaders after their biofilms are dissolved [4, 7]. This minimizes invader access to the bloodstream where they can travel to different parts of the body and cause further harm.
Overall, taking Syntol regularly supplies the body with ample servings of digestive enzymes and probiotics that support:
- A prolonged balance of intestinal flora
- A strong defense against foreign organisms
- A healthy intestinal environment that blocks invader growth
When an internal imbalance allows invader overgrowth to start, the immune system and intestinal bacteria (probiotics) generally struggle to combat the invaders on their own. Taking Syntol regularly — or at higher servings at the first sign of a health issue — provides the gut with a boost of enzymes and probiotics that swiftly begin to dissolve biofilms that help destructive microorganisms reproduce, rendering them harmless/powerless [1, 2].
