ProDophilus FOSOther ingredients:
Vegetarian capsule (Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose and water), cellulose and L-Leucine. Contains trace levels of milk protein.
*Contains 3 billion colony-forming units per capsule at the time of manufacture. A proprietary blend of 9 viable strains of universally-occurring beneficial bacteria which support the growth of friendly bacteria and help maintain a healthy balance of microflora in the intestinal environment. They produce L(+) lactic acid which inhibits the growth of pathogens and stabilizes the normal flora without the risk of metabolic acidosis. Probiotic Blend is resistant to heat (room temperature), acids, high moisture, oxygen, and other anti-bacterials.*
Two (2) capsules immediately upon rising and two (2) capsules at bedtime, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
o Food allergies
ProDophilusFOS plays a critical role in digesting undigested protein and other foods.*
o Lactobacillus acidophilus is a normal inhabitant of the intestinal tract and the most numerous of the lactobacilli. It is considered to be the most beneficial lactobacilli in the intestine.*
Some of the beneficial effects attributed to L. Acidophilus are: cholesterol reduction, inhibition of undesirable bacteria, improved lactose tolerance, reduced carcinogen production, and improved immune response.
This bacterium is also the predominant bacteria in the normal flora of the vagina where it has a role in inhibiting infections.*
o Bifidobacterium bifidum is the natural component in the small intestine and is the predominant bacteria in the intestine of breast-fed infants. It is also part of the intestinal bacteria in adults. It produces acetic and lactic acid. It may keep the pH low in the small intestine, which inhibits E.coli.* Often added as a probiotic to milk or yogurt.*
o Bifidobacterium longum stimulates the immune system by enhancing the activity of natural killer cells in the spleen of rats. The mechanisms of immune support by B.longum have been studied in animals.*
o Bifidobacterium infantis is similar to B.bifidum, flourishes in breast-fed infants, but is not usually found in adults. It manufactures B vitamins, and may detoxify the intestines. Useful for children with food allergies.*
o Lactobacillus helveticus helps to increase calcium absorption, decrease blood pressure and has been shown to reduce tumor activity in mice.*
o Lactobacillus plantarum aids in the balance of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine and produces lactic acid, which is vital to balancing the pH in the colon. It inhibits the translocation of bacteria from the gut to other organs such as lymph nodes and liver. *
Intestinal toxicity leads to a low immune system. Accumulation of toxins in the colon diverticula causes diverticulosis and other problems.*
Lactobacillus plantarum can be utilized throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract eliminating toxins and balancing the environment. The colonies continue to grow and produce a natural antibiotic effect, aiding the immune system in its fight against harmful agents in the body.*
o Lactobacillus casei is an inhabitant of the intestinal tract and has been demonstrated to have an immunostimulatory effect by the intestinal secretion of IgA, thus promoting the gut immune barrier. May reduce the severity of diarrhea in children.*
o Lactobacillus salivarius has been proven to be capable of producing a high amount of lactic acid and could inhibit and reduce the inflammatory response of H.pylori.*
o Streptococcus thermophilus is a good source of lactase to aid digestion of milk sugar.*
o Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is an effective nutrient for intestinal probiotic bacteria. The probiotics have to have some good flora to make them work. Normal human enzymes cannot digest FOS, which enables it to get into the colon intact and becomes a nutrient to the good bacteria. *
NOTE: ProDophilusFOS(TM) does not need refrigeration, and for best results, store at 75? and under.
VERY IMPORTANT: Should be taken as directed on bottle.
