Synergistic combination of 5 dual-coated live bacteria strains:
i. Dual-coated Lactobacillus acidophilus
Studies suggest that
L. acidophilus may help control intestinal infections (therefore helping to reduce the onset of diarrhoea), and improve the digestion of milk products. They may also provide an inhibitory response towards some types of cancer, stimulate the immune response against unwanted intestinal micro-organisms including viruses, and may help control serum cholesterol levels. It is well documented that
L. acidophilus produces natural antibiotics like lactocidin, acidophilin, etc., which enhance resistance or immunity.
L. acidophilus has known antimicrobial activity against
Salmonella, E.coli and
ii. Dual-coated Lactobacillus rhamnosus
Studies suggest that
L. rhamnosus stimulates an immune response against foreign intestinal organisms, and prevents rotaviral or
Clostridium difficile-induced diarrhoea. It also increases the immunoglobulins such as IgA, IgG, and IgM, and stimulates the immune system to modulate immune responses. It’s efficacy for immune related diseases such as atopic dermatitis and asthma, is under investigation.
Bifidobacterial strains have the ability to produce B vitamins and contain the enzymes; digestive, casein phosphatase and lysozyme. Clinical studies suggest that
B. longum reduces the frequency of gastrointestinal disorders (diarrhoea, nausea, constipation etc.) and helps digestive functioning and comfort.
iv. Dual-coated Bifidobacterium lactis
B. lactis has been reported to be useful for supporting and balancing a healthy intestinal flora, for reducing the incidence of diarrhoea and intestinal infections, for promoting the absorption of nutrients, for supporting the immune system, for maintaining cholesterol levels and for detoxifying the intestine, the blood and the liver.
v. Dual-coated Streptococcus thermophilus
S. thermophilus is known to be efficient in breaking down lactose by producing the enzyme lactase, and is thus a good supplement for people who are lactose-intolerant. Cytokine production is stimulated in tissue-cultured cells, by this bacterium. Other research suggests that
S. thermophilus can improve the nutritional value of foods by making micronutrients available to the host.
4. Enhanced with FOS
FOS (Fructooligosaccharide) is considered to be a "prebiotic," i.e. food for friendly bacteria. FOS improves overall digestive health by supporting the growth of friendly bacteria in the large intestine.
