The Summer Wind

The sultry, lamenting lyrics of the iconic song popularized by Frank Sinatra last a shade over two minutes. For many of us indulging in summer’s bounty of fresh corn, asparagus, beans, and broccoli, the inconvenient and often embarrassing “Summer Wind” they cause can linger for days.

We’ve developed a hybrid probiotic-enzyme formula that will strengthen your gastrointestinal performance; this will maximize the critical nutrients you harvest during digestion and reduce the amount of undigested food left to ferment within your colon to create gas, bloating, and discomfort.

WindBreaker features the clinically proven probiotic strain Bacillus subtilis R0179. It has been shown to reduce abdominal pain and discomfort for patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It also consumes oxygen within the gut; this creates a favourable environment for the growth of beneficial anaerobic probiotics, which include Lactobacillus species. Its capacity to survive and deliver benefits throughout the intestinal tract further earns it human strain status.

Our formula also includes the synergistic action of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase. This essential enzyme, produced by the salivary glands and pancreas, is instrumental in the process of breaking down complex carbohydrates. Unfortunately, many of us suffer an age-related decline of this enzyme; this leaves more fuel for harmful microbes and opportunistic yeast including Candia albicans to feed and ferment within the colon (large intestine), causing flatulence.

The importance of eating a broad range of food relates directly to the diversity of probiotics within your microbiome, which translates to a healthy gut and better health in general.

WindBreaker is a side effect–free supplement suitable for long-term management of gas and bloating or for occasional use, so you can enjoy summer feasts with their many guilty culinary pleasures—maybe even a cob or two of road-side fresh, buttered corn.
