The Process Of Digestion

BX4 is a dietary supplement manufactured by an American company called Nucific located in Tarzana, California. There is an official website which contains basic information on the product's ingredients; however there is not even a word about possible negative consequences of using this supplement. The company also offers two more products namely CL X3 and Nucific Digest. All of the three supplements are meant to improve the work of the human digestive system. BX4 is a supplement that is claimed to help the user to control the process of digestion, weight and gut balance.

So what does the company promise BX4 can do for you? Here is the list of are the benefits offered by the product: better digestion and metabolism, lower appetite and decreased food cravings, healthy gut, weight loss, better mood and more energy. Let's find out whether the supplement is really so effective.

According to the official Nucific website, BX4 contains four main ingredients. Let's have a closer look at each of them. Digestive enzymes are called to maximize the number of nutrients absorbed from food by the human gut. Probiotics include 39 Billion "Colony-Forming Units" which help to restore balance of the human digestive tract and fill it with healthy bacteria. 5-HTP suppresses appetite and improves mood. EGCG is in fact a green tea extract, which is supposed to improve your metabolism.

BX4 website contains many positive claims about the supplement's ingredients but are they really so necessary for the human organism? Let's try to answer this question. What Are Probiotics? They are active yeasts interacting with the bacteria living in the human gut. A human being has about 500 types of bacteria in the gut. Some of them are good, while others are bad. If the "bad" bacteria are more numerous than the good, one may start facing digestive problems. It is advised then to take a probiotic.

Probiotics avoid Chron's disease, yeast infections, and lung infections. They also help to get rid of diarrhea, however, it should be kept in mind that probiotics have not been approved by the FDA. There is also some concern probiotics in the pill form may be damaged by stomach acids. As a result they can't reach the intestines. BX4 containes the following Probiotics: Bifidobacterium blend (B. animalis, B. lactis) and Lactobacillus acidophilus blend (L. rhamnosus, L. acidophilus, L. planterum).

Digestive Enzyme Blend is another ingredient in the supplement. It consists of bromelain, amylase, and lipase. Bromelain is an enzyme that can be found in pineapple. It improves the digestion of proteins. It is used to treat infection and inflammation caused by injuries, as well as indigestion, however, its effectiveness hasn't been scientifically proven. Mylase is a saliva enzyme that helps to digest carbs. Lipase is secreted by the human pancreas and transforms proteins into amino acids. But this ingredient isn't necessary for most people in supplements, as their own lipase is usually enough. So, additional amaylase and lipase can be even harmful for most people.

Does BX4 Work? Well, few of its ingredients have clinical data to support the manufacturer's claims, while others don't. Only 5-HTP has been clinically proven to be able to improve mood and suppress appetite. ECCG is considered to be a metabolism booster but as it is simply an extract from green tea; its concentration will hardly make you feel any difference. I haven't found much information on the term "digestive enzymes", but some of BX4 probiotics can slightly maintain digestive functions and treat constipation or diarrhea.

The manufacturer didn't say a word about possible side effects of BX4 for the human health. However, there isn't even a claim that it doesn't have them. But as a specialist, I can say for sure - there is no supplement that would be completely free from any side effects. And BX4 is not an exception.

There is warning that BX4 should be avoided by people who take anti-depressants. The matter is that the supplement contains 5-HTP, which can lead to mood swings, especially in combination with antidepressants. So, if you are taking antidepressants, you are advised to talk to your doctor and discuss whether BX4 is suitable for you.

Believe it or not but Probiotics (Lactobacillus) may cause some side effects. They are safe for most people, but the users usually suffer from bloating or intestinal gas. If this condition worsens stop using probiotics and consult your doctor. Lactobacillus GG is considered to be safe for pregnant and breast-feeding women, however, other types of lactobacillus need to be better studied during these periods of women's lives.

If you have a weakened immune system, there is concern that probiotics might grow too well in patients with HIV/AIDS or those who take medicines for preventing rejection of a transplant. There was a report about disease caused by Lactobacillus. To be on the safe side, avoid using lactobacillus. The same concerns people with a short bowel syndrome. Such patients can be prone to developing lactobacillus infections.

"I tried one whole bottle and saw no results at all. No weight loss, no change in digestion, no change in appetite. Scam"

"Don't waste your money. Gas, bloating, indigestion worse. Seemed to cause more problems"

"Unfortunately there is caffein in this product and I'm highly caffein sensitive. Today was my last try... took one with breakfast and now I feel jittery and edgy"

BX4 is available on such retail stores as Walmart, Amazon, and GNC, however, it is better to purchase this supplement directly from the Nucific official website. The manufacturer offers three different packages. One bottle (30-day supply) of the product costs $49.

I don't think that BX4 can be really helpful in solving all problems connected with your gut. Before starting any treatment consult your doctor to avoid undesired effects. The product has a number of disadvantages. It has some side effects including gas and bloating due. Pregnant and breastfeeding ladies, as well as those with a weak immune system are recommended to avoid taking BX4. The supplement is quite expensive and there is insufficient evidence that proves its effectiveness in the process of weight loss. I cannot recommend it because the market offers other products of the kind which seem to be more effective and cheaper.
