Focus on the Microbiome The Gut-Liver Axis
Just the Basics
The gut-liver axis is a network comprised of the gut microbiome, the liver, the circulatory system, and the direct line of communication between the gut and liver: the portal vein. Gut microbes influence the liver by strengthening the gut barrier, eliminating toxins, modulating inflammation, and supporting digestion/metabolism.
RCT Research Highlights
- Increased liver function (cirrhotic patients)
- Improved HOMA-IR, cholesterol, and inflammatory markers (medication-naive TDM patients)
- Improved hip:waist ratio, with no other interventions
A Real-World Case Experience
Patient: 51 year old male with history of dyslipidemia and hypothyroidism.
Novel Intervention: Omni-Biotic Hetox, Omni-Logic Plus, 90-day check-in
- 15 lb weight loss
- 21% decrease in LDL-P
- 14% decrease in LD-C
- 10% decrease in total cholesterol
A conversation with Vanessa Stadlbauer, MD
Listen as Dr. Stadlbauer describes how gut microbes influence liver function. Highlights include clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a targeted probiotic to positively impact functional markers in liver and metabolic dysfunction.
