We now know that many pathogens adhere to the lining of the gut, colonise, and form a protective barrier around themselves called a biofilm. Microbes use to guard themselves from our immune system. Now we have a solid understanding of why pathogens in the gut can be so hard to treat… they’ve been hidden.
PathoGest™ is a unique formula designed to dissolve Biofilms within the body exposing pathogenic bacteria to herbal Paranil™, H-Pylorid™ , SIBOHIB™ or anti-bacterial drug interventions. Please always consult with your health professional for the most appropriate to your situation.
This page previously contained InterFase Plus by Klaire Labs, PathoGest is our replacement for this item.
PathoGest™ and Biofilms
Biofilm is made up of microorganisms that are encased within a matrix of exopolysaccharides and exoproteins. This matrix adheres to other surfaces‚ resisting dislodgement.
The microorganisms encased in these biofilms are highly resistant to antibiotics and other antimicrobials. They are also resistant to the bacteriocins that are produced by probiotics. PathoGest™ was specifically designed to disrupt the biofilm matrix that can embed gastrointestinal pathogens.
The specific herbs & enzymes chosen for PathoGest™ were selected because they have been shown in studies to rupture and dissolve the extracellular polymers that are often found in biofilm . These enzymes can also degrade the cell walls of bacteria and yeasts.
Calcium‚ magnesium and iron are essential for biofilm creation. The EDTA included in PathoGest™ binds the metals necessary for biofilm formation, depriving them of their resources.
Within a biofilm, one or more types of bacteria and/or fungi share nutrients and DNA and undergo changes to evade the immune system. Since it requires less oxygen and fewer nutrients and alters the pH at the core, the biofilm is a hostile community for most antibiotics. In addition, the biofilm forms a physical barrier that keeps most immune cells from detecting the pathogenic bacteria (1, 2).
According to the NIH, more than 80 percent of human bacterial infections are associated with bacterial biofilm (3). While planktonic bacteria can become antibiotic resistant through gene mutations, a biofilm is often antibiotic resistant for many reasons—physical, chemical, and genetic. Treating illnesses associated with biofilms using antibiotics is an uphill battle. For example, in patients suffering from IBD, antibiotics appear initially to work, only to be followed by a “rebound,” where the symptoms again flare up, presumably due to bacteria evading the antibiotic within a biofilm (4).

How to Take PathoGest
PathoGest™ is intended to be used alongside other efforts to support healthy microflora and gastrointestinal function. In combination with these other efforts‚ it is recommended that after you have completed the 10 day course of PathoGest™ and then Paranil™ that you re-seed the gut flora with a broad‚ high-potency‚ multispecies probiotic as well as a prebiotic formula such as potato starch.
This will encourage the production and growth of healthy intestinal microbial biofilm communities – while PathoGest™ is working to eliminate the pathogenic ones. If necessary and directed by your health care practitioner‚ PathoGest can also be taken with antimicrobial agents such as Paranil™ and Monolaurin‚ but take these capsules away from mealtimes to maximize the effects.
Caution: Some people will feel worse before they feel better. If you fee achy, flu-like, or nauseous, you could be reacting to the yeast dying off, which overwhelms your body and your liver detox pathways. This is called a herxheimer reaction. Take a full B Vitamin Complex and keep well hydrated also cut the supplements in half or stop them and gradually start back up again. Activated charcoal will help rid the body of toxins and debris.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take 1 to 2 capsules twice daily on an empty stomach / between meals followed by Paranil and Charcoal or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Caution: If Pregnant or nursing, do not take this supplement. Contains NO yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk/dairy, corn, sodium, sugar, starch, artificial coloring, preservatives or flavoring.
