PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE PROBIOTICS
Intestinal flora consist of a large variety of microorganisms that live inside the digestive tract, the largest reservoir of human flora. Friendly gut micro-flora also known as probiotic bacteria , plays a key role in helping to prevent pathogens proliferation inside the intestinal tract. Probiotics are formulated with a large variety of Natural Probiotic Strains providing live microorganisms which are natural residents of the human intestinal tract. The one I chose, which is max strength has 20 billion in it.
Among all microorganisms, Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria represent the predominant probiotic families naturally found inside the intestinal tract. Both are necessary in maintaining a healthy balance of intestinal flora.* While Lactobacilli are natural residents of the small intestine, Bifidobacteria are endogenous species of the large intestine, also called the colon. Since they act in different sites inside the gut, the most potent probiotic formulations will contain a variety of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria strains in order to optimize probiotic activities all along the intestinal tract.*
All Probaclac Healthy Flora products are formulated with a variety of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli species mimicking the endogenous composition of probiotic flora. They also contain a natural S. thermophilus strain which play an important role as a probiotic. Microbiologist Elie Metchnikoff spoke highly about the health benefits of Streptococcus thermophilus as producer of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and its benefits for gastrointestinal health, immune system stimulation and for longevity.
- First, they compete for nutrients with unfriendly bacteria. The more they consume, the more they restrain the growth of pathogenic microorganisms.
- Secondly, they produce Lactic Acid promoting favorable pH balance for probiotic proliferation.
- Finally, probiotic bacteria such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria naturally produce anti-microbial substances that are known to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria species.
