If so, we have exciting news for you!
Interplexus is proud to announce the addition of two NEW POSTbiotic products to our family of supplements!
IPX-Booster Super Strength™ (liquid) and IPX-Booster™ (powder)
While many of us know that daily supplementation with probiotics supports health, research is now beginning to teach us about the fascinating world of POSTbiotics!
Probiotics are defined as “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” But; what happens when the probiotic organisms die and become "zombie probiotics" or "ghost probiotics"?
Are the dead probiotics still beneficial to our health?
An abundance of research has confirmed the answer is yes! "Ghost probiotics" and the metabolites they produce during fermentation do confer health benefits and are known as POSTbiotics. In fact, many of the benefits offered by probiotics are facilitated by the POSTbiotic compounds they produce!
Postbiotics have been part of a healthy diet for millennia because fermentation is one of the oldest forms of processing and preserving food to maintain and even improve its nutritional and functional properties. For example, fermentation has been widely used to increase the bioavailability of nutrients, metabolize “anti-nutrients,” reduce allergenic potential and produce unique health-promoting compounds.1
Probiotic-produced postbiotic compounds regulate and maintain the body’s healthy gut microbiome while initiating thousands of chemical reactions in cells throughout the body to influence many vital functions. According to current data, postbiotics have numerous beneficial effects, including immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer properties.2 Evidence suggests that supplementation with postbiotics could be useful for those with diarrhea, sore throat, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, obesity, or infection with a pathogen such as E. coli, Salmonella spp., C. difficile, influenza, rotavirus, or Candida.3,4,5,6
There is also evidence that topically applied postbiotics support hair growth. In one clinical study, a statistically significant improvement in hair re-growth was recorded in the majority of subjects treated with topical postbiotics.7
IPX-Booster Super Strength and IPX Booster contain nourishing blends of postbiotic nutrients formed by lactic acid bacterial fermentation. The production of IPX-Booster Postbiotic blends begin with organic non-GMO soybeans and 25 carefully selected strains of beneficial lactic acid-producing bacteria, including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species. IPX Booster Postbiotic blends are fermented for two years, and the final extracts contain a unique array of over 400 biologically active postbiotic metabolites, including short-chain fatty acids, proteins, peptides, polyphenols, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleic acids, polysaccharides, and other micronutrients.*
IPX Booster Super Strength and IPX Booster may be taken daily to BOOST your well-being!*
Supplementation with IPX-Booster Postbiotic blends may:
- Help maintain a healthy gut microbiome*
- Balance the function of the immune system*
- Support the structural integrity of the lining of the GI tract*
- Enhance adiponectin production to support healthy insulin, glucose, and cholesterol levels*
- Provide anti-inflammatory benefits*
- Stimulate the production of protective sIgA antibodies*
- Support a healthy blood pressure level*
- Promote optimal cellular health and functionality*

Microorganisms rarely exist as single cells living next to each other but instead accumulate along surfaces to form polymicrobial aggregates known as films, sludge, plaques, scum, or ‘biofilms’. In most biofilms, the actual microorganisms account for less than 10% of the dry mass of the aggregate, whereas the biofilm matrix tends to account for over 90% of the dry weight.
Research suggests postbiotics may strengthen and balance your skin’s protective barrier while supporting healthy hair growth...
