Frequently Asked Questions


Question: What’s so special about Akkermansia’s capsule?

Answer: 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.


Question: Who can take Akkermansia?

Answer: 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.


Question: Can I take Akkermansia with other probiotics?

Answer: Yes, you can take Akkermansia with other probiotics. 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.


Question: How should I store my Akkermansia?

Answer: Store at room temperature. Refrigerate for optimal quality. Cold storage during transit is not necessary.


Question: What is the shelf life of Akkermansia?

Answer: The shelf life of Akkermansia is 2 years from the manufacturing date printed on the bottle. However, Pendulum is transitioning to putting “best by” dates on our Akkermansia bottles. If your bottle is printed with a best by date, that indicates the shelf life.
