Pendulum Akkermansia contains the strain Akkermansia muciniphila, the prebiotic inulin and is on-GMO verified, vegan, gluten-free, sourced & manufactured in the USA. Research indicates that Akkermansia nurtures the gut microbiome, optimizes the balance of the gut-mucus layer, and maintains a healthy ecosystem of beneficial bacteria in the gut microbiome. This keystone strain is found in over 1,000+ science publications and is known as the next-generation strain at the forefront of gut health.
Strain in the product: Akkermansia muciniphila WB-STR-0001
AFU Information: 100 million AFUs per capsule
Akkermansia is encased in a plant-based, acid-resistant, delayed release capsule so that the strain gets through the stomach acid and to the gut microbiome where it can do its job.
Other studies have shown Akkermansia to be diminished or absent in patients with various gastrointestinal, neurological, immunologic and dermatologic disorders. Where rodent models for these diseases exist, oral administration of Akkermansia has led to improvement. That said, Pendulum Akkermansia is GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), and customers who take it for general metabolic health have reported a wide variety of benefits.
You can take Akkermansia with other probiotics. It works particularly well in combination with Pendulum Butyricum.
While we have not clinically tested Akkermansia with other medication or supplements, there are no known contraindications. We recommend seeking the advice of your healthcare provider for further recommendations.
