  • Strengthen immune system
  • Yeast overgrowth
  • Candida - Candida Albicans
  • Thrush - Vaginitis
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Toxic bowel
  • Toxic liver
  • Dysbiosis
  • Destroy pathogenic bacteria, viruses and fungi
  • Help balance sex hormones, especially oestrogen
  • Herpes infection
  • Food poisoning
  • Bifidobacteria for infants whose mothers did not breastfeed
  • Prevent constipation, diarrhoea, flatulence and bloating
  • Overcome skin problems - acne
  • Reduce dietary cholesterol
  • Assist digestion of lactose in milk by producing lactase
     

These powerful practitioner strength probiotics:

  • Guarantees twelve billion viable organisms of beneficial bacteria* that are absolutely essential for proper digestion, strong immune function and over-all health . (*at time of manufacture)
  • The specific strains used in Adults Blend have been specially chosen for their value to adult health -and have been formulated to the viable count appropriate for adults for daily maintenance

Each vegetarian capsule is guaranteed to contain not less than 12 billion total viable cells (at time of manufacture) of:

Lactobacillus casei:25%
Lactobacillus rhamnosus: 25%
Lactobacillus acidophilus: 20%
Lactobacillus plantarum: 10%
Streptococcus thermophilus: 7%
Bifidobacterium breve: 5%
Bifidobacterium bifidum: 5%
Lactobacillus bulgaricus: 3%

In a base of microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate and ascorbic acid
 

1.Lactobacilluscasei: a bacteria commonly used for milk fermentation and has also shown to be helpful in treating diarrhoea caused by antibiotics and viruses.

2.Lactobacillus rhamnosus:one of the most important probiotic strains for the health of the adult digestive tract from the mouth to the small intestine. Especially beneficial in inhibiting the bacteria involved in vaginal and urinary tract infections.

3. Lactobacillus acidophilus:one of the most prominent micro-organisms found in the small intestine. It produces lactic acid which inhibits yeast growth, as well as natural antibiotics which enhance immune functions.

4. Lactobacillus plantarum:from vegetable origin and found in the intestinal tract, it has beneficial anti-microbial activities.

5. Streptococcus thermophilus:a transient probiotic from dairy origin. Producing large quantities of lactic acid, it limits the growth of unfriendly bacteria and helps in the prevention and treatment of diarrhoea.

6. Bifidobacterium bifidum:found primarily in the large intestine. As a producer of B vitamins it helps the body in the completion of its digestive process, specifically in the absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals.

7. Bifidobacterium breve:colonises the large intestine and is a producer of lactic and acetic acids that inhibit the growth of undesirable bacteria. It enhances immune responses against various pathogenic antigens and has been shown to repress the growth of ulcer-inducing bacteria.

8. Lactobacillus bulgaricus:a transient strain from dairy origin that carries important protective functions on its way through the intestinal tract.

 

Further information on Bifidobacterium bifidum:

  • Bifido bacterium bifidum (also referred to as B. bifidum) is a natural inhabitant of the human large intestine
  • Also found in the lower part of small intestine
  • Also found in the human vagina
  • Together with other bifidobacteria species, B. bifidum are the predominant organisms in the large intestine of breast-fed infants, accounting for about 99 per cent of the microflora
  • In adults and adolescents, bifidobacteria are a major component of the large intestine's microflora
  • Levels of bifidobacteria decline with age
  • Levels of bifidobacteria decline in various disease states
  • Bifido bacteria produce acetic and lactic acids, and small amounts of formic acid, from fermentable carbohydrates

According to Leon Chaitow ND, DO and Natasha Trenev, in their book Probiotics, The revolutionary 'friendly bacteria' way to vital health and well-being, the major beneficial functions of bifidobacteria are:

  • the prevention of the colonization of the intestine by invading pathogenic bacteria or yeasts with which they compete for nutrients and attachment sites
  • the production of acetic and lactic acids which lower the pH (increase the acidity of the intestine thus making the region undesirable for other possibly harmful bacteria
  • assisting in nitrogen retention and weight gain in infants
  • the inhibition of bacteria which can alter nitrates in the intestine (derived from food or water) into potentially harmful nitrites
  • the production of B vitamins
  • assisting in the dietary management of liver conditions

They further state that oral antibiotic therapy, therapeutic irradiation of the abdomen, reduced gastric acidity, impaired intestinal motility, stresses or some other conditions, will all disturb the intestinal microflora and cause bifidobacteria to decline. They state that bifidobacteria in supplements or in bifido milk can help to restore the intestinal microflora.

Further information on Lactobacillus acidophilus:

  • lactobacillus acidophilus is a natural inhabitant of the human small and large intestine
  • Also found in the human mouth and vagina
  • Lactabacillus acidophilus produces lactic acid as a main product from carbohydrates

Leon Chaitow and Natasha Trenev state in their above mentioned book that lactobacillus acidophilus

  • enhances and allows digestion of milk sugar (lactose) by producing the enzyme lactase
  • generally aids in the digestion of nutrients
  • is able by some competitive means, e.g. creation of lactic acid and other inhibitory substances, to suppress undesirable micro-organisms in the intestine
  • (some strains) act to help destroy hostile invading bacteria by producing natural antibiotic substances
  • (some strains) are able to help reduce the level of cholesterol, thus lessening the dangers of cardiovascular complications
  • helps lessen the proliferation of hostile yeasts such as Candida albicans

They further state that "When the intestinal microflora is disturbed (the lactobacilli can be adversely affected) under the influence of oral antibiotic therapy, or stress conditions, the use of supplemental acidophilus, in food or concentrated form, can reverse such negative processes. The regular use of acidophilus bacteria as a supplement or in food is a protective means against an imbalance of the intestinal microflora."
 

Further information on Lactobacillus bulgaricus:

  • a transient yet important bacteria in human ecology
  • found in yoghurt and cheese
  • produces lactic acid as a main product from carbohydrates
  • some strains produce natural antibiotic substances
  • when eaten or taken as supplements these bacteria benefit humans by enhancing digestion of milk sugar by producing the enzyme lactase
  • because they create lactic acid, the more acid environment they create serves to inhibit the growth of the less desirable micro-organisms

Further information on Streptococcus Thermophillus:

  • a transient, i.e. non-resident bacteria of the human intestine
  • found in yoghurt and cheese
  • produces lactic acid as a main product from fermentable carbohydrates
  • some strains produce antibiotic-like substances
  • streptococcus thermophillus are the only streptococci which produce lactase
  • produce more lactase than lactobacillus bulgaricus
  • due to their lactic acid production, they help inhibit other pathogenic bacteria
