BFB-2 is the second of two Bio Film Busters of essential oils blends. The main purpose is to help degrade biofilms, interfere with communication between microbes, enhance penetration of concurrently used antimicrobials and act as antimicrobials themselves. There are two overlapping formulas a doctor picks one or both via your muscle testing results. Some patients will need one of them while more chronic patients may need both simultaneously.
BFB-2 consists of a proprietary blend of the following essential oils: Eucalyptus globules, Citrus reticulata blanco var tangerina, Boswellia carterii, and Thymus vulgaris.
A biofilm is a negatively charged group of cells which produce a matrix of extracellular polymeric substance and adhere to each other.
The biofilm is used to both protect the bacteria from the host’s immune system and most antimicrobial agents, while also serving as a nutritional reservoir in times of need. It’s an efficient way to ensure that many microbes of a certain species survive, thrive, replicate, and avoid attack. Biofilms have been found to be involved in a large percentage of bodily infections.
Biofilms can also be referred to as “bacterial slime”, and are generally composed of extracellular DNA, proteins, polysaccharides, fibrin, microbes, minerals and heavy metals. A biofilm can be comprised of multiple microbes; bacteria, viral, protozoa, parasite, and fungus that cohabitate and engage in “quorum sensing”, a form of communication used for sharing information and mutual survival.
