What Blend of Probiotics and a Prebiotic is Inside Pendulum Glucose Control?

What's inside Pendulum Glucose Control?


Pendulum Glucose Control's patented formula contains 5 targeted probiotic strains (beneficial bacteria) and a prebiotic (food to fuel bacteria).

Learn more about the 5 strains and 1 prebiotic: 

1. Akkermansia muciniphila WB-STR-0001 (gut lining probiotic)

A unique and novel bacterial strain that can only be found in Pendulum Glucose Control.

This strain was first identified by Dr. Lee Kaplan, Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard School of Medicine and Director of the Obesity, Metabolism and Nutrition Institute.

Akkermansia muciniphila is a highly sought and researched strain, and has been the subject of over 1,000 articles published in peer-reviewed science.

Akkermansia muciniphila is naturally found in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, where it directly interacts with the gut lining and helps regulate the mucus lining of the gut.

This strain also helps maintain a healthy ecosystem of beneficial bacteria in the GI.1,2,3,9

2. Anaerobutyricum hallii WB-STR-0008 (butyrate-producing probiotic)
A unique and novel bacterial strain that can only be found in Pendulum Glucose Control.
Whereas healthy people have vast amounts of Anaerobutyricum hallii in their guts, studies have shown that people with Type 2 diabetes do not.
Due to its ability to utilize glucose to form butyrate, Anaerobutyricum hallii is an important microbe for intestinal metabolic balance.4
3. Clostridium butyricum WB-STR-0006 (digestive and immune health probiotic) 

Naturally found in the human gut microbiome, Clostridium butyricum is named for its ability to produce high amounts of butyrate.

Clostridium butyricum has been clinically shown to support healthy gut microflora, digestion, and immune health.

Clostridium butyricum is also the main bacteria contained with Butyricum, a new butyrate-producing medical probiotic from Pendulum 

4. Clostridium beijerinckii WB-STR-0005 (butyrate-producing probiotic) 

Naturally found in the human GI tract, this strain produces butyrate.5 

5. Bifidobacterium infantis 100 (digestive health probiotic)

A common bacterial strain naturally found in the human oral cavity and GI tract, Bifidobacterium infantis helps maintain a healthy digestive tract. 

6. Inulin (healthy blood sugar prebiotic)

A soluble fiber sourced from chicory root.

Inulin is classified as a prebiotic because of its ability to travel to the lower gut and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria, including the bacterial strains in our product.
