Modern lifestyles are hard on our livers and kidneys, the organs that filter and break down metabolic waste products. But people don’t want to take drugs – they want to get healthy. Unlock unleashes the power of the microbiome to help out.
Unlocked is a consumer probiotic company that unlocks silent genes – regaining the power to reduce toxins in our bodies.
Some gut microbes have the genes to eat our waste products as food, as a carbon source. These are dormant genes – they can be unlocked and activated. The company’s first products reduce uric acid and oxalic acid. High uric acid leads to gout, and high oxalic acid leads to kidney stones. Next up is methionine overload, LDL cholesterol, iron overload.
