Top doctors and researchers recognize the potential of Pendulum’s novel strains. Together, we’re advancing the world’s understanding of health and the microbiome.Dr. Mark Hyman, MD
"When I was trying to recover from the greatest health crisis of my life, Akkermansia muciniphila played a pivotal role. It’s crucial for optimizing gut barrier function and immune response."Dr. Steven Gundry, MD
"First identified in 2004, Akkermansia muciniphila—which literally translates to ‘mucus loving’—is a species of bacteria that helps to maintain our gut lining. And until now, it’s never been available."Jana Davis, MS, RDN, CDCES
"Having the ability to replace Akkermansia and combining it with the right dietary factors has made an incredible difference in both my patients' metabolic and gut health."
Akkermansia is in 3,000+ science publications such as: Applied Microbiology International, Microbiology Society and Nature Reviews Gastro. Akkermansia has been gaining traction within the scientific and medical communities as more discoveries are made regarding the benefits of this novel strain.
What to expect when starting a new probiotic. Spoiler alert: by month 3, you'll feel amazing!
- Week 1–3 - You may experience mild digestive changes. This means that the strains are settling in and is usually temporary.
- Month 1–2 - It usually takes around 90 days to see changes in the microbiome. However, results vary based on your gut, and you may begin to feel some benefits.
- Month 3 and beyond - You should feel the full benefits: your gut microbiome is happy, and you feel healthier overall. Cheers to gut health!
The ingredients in Akkermansia are GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), and customers who take it for general gut 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.
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.
