Wheat Resuce - 60 Capsules by Microbiome Labs
WheatRescue™ is a unique blend of powerful digestive enzymes and probiotics designed to support optimal gluten digestion and protect against hidden sources of gluten. DPP-IV and Tolerase G® are specific enzymes that assist in the breakdown of glutenin and gliadin proteins, which can help alleviate symptoms associated with dietary gluten intolerance and sensitivity. WheatRescue™ combines resilient probiotic spores with superior digestive enzymes to support the complete digestion of gluten and other inflammatory wheat-derived peptides within 60 to 90 minutes.
There’s no denying that gluten is problematic for many people. Many doctors will suggest a strict gluten-free diet, but recent discoveries have revealed this may not be enough. New research suggests that the small intestines of up to 60% of adults with celiac disease never completely heal despite following a gluten-free diet.
This could be due in part to gluten contamination in many “gluten-free” foods. A recent study examined 5,624 foods tested by 804 users and found that 32% of foods labeled “gluten-free” contained measurable amounts of gluten. Interestingly, gluten-free pizzas and pastas were the most likely to test positive for gluten with over 50% of samples showing gluten contamination.
But beyond the risk of gluten contamination, a gluten-free diet does not appear sufficient for repairing intestinal damage. In one study from 2010 of 241 subjects with celiac disease, only 35% of subjects saw mucosal recovery of the small intestine after 2 years of following a gluten-free diet, and only 66% saw mucosal recovery after 5 years of eating a gluten-free diet. Another study from 2009 examined 465 celiac subjects who adhered to a gluten-free diet for 16 months and found that total restoration of the intestinal damage inflicted by gluten was exceptionally rare (roughly 8%) in adult celiac patients despite following a gluten-free diet.4 These findings suggest that while a gluten-free diet can help to prevent further damage, the avoidance of gluten alone is not sufficient for total gut restoration.
A combination of probiotic spores and yeast can effectively support intestinal health and barrier function. Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast that can help support digestive health by producing lactate, B vitamins, and targeted antimicrobials to defend against pathogenic gut infections. S. boulardii has also been shown to be immunoprotective through the upregulation of IgA and IgG secretions in the intestines. Bacillus coagulans and Bacillus subtilis are spore-forming probiotics that are naturally designed to survive digestion, support intestinal barrier function, and enhance the microbial diversity of the gut microbiome.
B. coagulans is very unique in that it possesses characteristics of both Bacillus and Lactobacillus genera. It functions as a lactic acid-producing bacterium with the protection and survivability of a Bacillus spore. Bacillus subtilis HU58™ provides potent immune modulation and has been shown to reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-6 and TNF- and significantly increase the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) such as butyrate, acetate, and propionate in the gut.6 Butyrate is the major energy source for colonocytes and has been studied for its role in nourishing the colonic mucosa.
A recent study published in Scientific Reports concluded that microbially-derived byproducts like butyrate and lactate can be used to modulate the epithelial response to gluten by improving barrier function and reducing gliadininduced cytokine secretion.7 When it comes to facing the dangers of gluten, WheatRescue™ is here to save the day. WheatRescue™ offers complete digestive support, superior protection, and peace of mind concerning gluten.

About Microbiome Labs
The origin story of Microbiome Labs is a classic tale of forging new frontiers, complete with discovery, adversity, and a leap of faith. Neither founder set out on a path to start his own supplement company, but through persistent curiosity Dr. Tom Bayne and Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan stumbled upon an amazing opportunity.
With a rich background in research, Kiran noticed that many supplement companies were lacking sufficient clinical data, which inspired him to design trials that were more affordable and fitting for the supplement industry. He then expanded his skill set into product development and formulation for a number of retail supplement companies. Eventually he was hired to study probiotics and discover what would become the next big probiotic in the industry: Bacillus spores.
Before Kiran discovered the spores, Dr. Tom took a step back from supplement manufacturing and settled into his own chiropractic practice. As his practice began to blossom, he found himself on the forefront of Functional Medicine, uniquely focused on his patients’ gut health. For years, probiotics had proven so ineffective and inconsistent that he eventually quit using them in his practice altogether – that is, until he saw the research that Kiran had uncovered.
With Dr. Tom’s clinical expertise and Kiran’s probiotic research, the serendipitous pair formulated the first all-spore probiotic known as MegaSporeBiotic. After a great deal of clinical validation, the team set out to launch the product in the practitioner market by attending medical conferences.
In 2014, the company exhibited at only 6 conferences and signed on a handful of new accounts. However, as the product sales began to grow, the company chose to reallocate the majority of the profits back into research, with only a minimal amount leftover for marketing. This unorthodox approach is far and away what continues to set Microbiome Labs apart from the rest of the supplement industry.
In doing so, Microbiome Labs hopes to encourage other supplement companies to follow suit, thereby raising the bar of the supplement industry as a whole. In 2018, Microbiome Labs attended over 148 conferences, initiated and/or completed 14 clinical trials, and provided key solutions to thousands of practitioners, changing over 344,000 lives… and counting.
