Hello everyone, we finally got the probiotic Pendulum, the first on the market that we are aware of that contains the delicate and necessary Akkermasia muciniphila bacteria among others equally difficult to obtain today.
But first, I will briefly tell you why we are so interested in getting this probiotic.
Pendulum has launched a product with the following beneficial strains to restore impaired bowel function in people with type 2 diabetes:
– Akkermansia muciniphila WB-STR-0001
– Clostridium beijerinckii WB-STR-0005
– Clostridium butyricum WB-STR-0006
– Eubacterium hallii WB-STR-0008
– Bifidobacterium infantis 100
These bacteria have been selected by DNA based on their ability to metabolize fiber and the production of butyrate, an anti-inflammatory short-chain fatty acid that plays an important role in the body for signaling insulin production. Also, it is important to note that Pendulum Glucose is marked as a medical probiotic, rather than a dietary supplement.
Aware of the serious gastrointestinal disorders suffered by the vast majority of children with ASD, and the alteration of the intestinal microbiota, insofar as these boys and girls have deficient levels of Akkermansia Muciniphila, Clostridium butyricum, Bifidobacterium infantis, and Eubacterium Halii… and knowing at the same time, of the enormous qualities of these strains, (which we will not detail in order not to overextend), we thought it convenient to get hold of this probiotic that will help to solve some of these relevant deficiencies.
It all begins with a message to my Whatsapp from my dear partner Natalia (she is the one to thank for everything), informing me that consulting some of the thousands of groups to which she is registered, she had found out about an American company that sold something called Pendulum Glucose Control, for the control of diabetes and that, look where, contained the Akkermansia Muciniphila strain (mucolytic bacteria) knowing all the time and effort that goes into looking for a probiotic with said strain. In fact, locating that strain in a probiotic has always been an obsession, visiting laboratories, calling producers of probiotic strains, etc.
From there, a series of emails was launched to the supplier Pendulum, requesting a discount on the purchase of the probiotic, faithful to our business mission of reducing expenses for families with some neurodevelopmental pathology, since the Pendulum Glucose Control does not It's cheap precisely, it costs 198 dollars per bottle. And in addition, to the complication of such a high price, there was a double difficulty:
1) Pendulum Company does not supply anything outside the US.
2) Pendulum's probiotic must maintain the cold chain at all times. So we couldn't just order them and that's it, even if we had an American address.
However, to want is to be able and so, we managed to find a discount code, with a US address that would serve as an intermediary in the shipment thanks to a contact friend of ours, and with a way to keep these delicate strains cold throughout the journey from the USA to Spain.
Now we hope that this magnificent probiotic will have its effect and soon we will begin to recover the intestinal health of our children and thus begin the path of their improvement in ASD symptoms.
