ProFlora 5 is a broad spectrum probiotic formula, providing strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria for everyday use. The strains included are: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis. These strains support the health of the intestinal tract, and improve symptoms of IBS and IBD.
L.acidophilus and B. longum have been shown to promote healthy function of the colon and maintain the GI barrier – in part by supporting the mucosal lining of the GI tract. L.acidophilus is the most prevalent of the beneficial bacteria in the small intestine. It can also implant itself in the wall of the vagina and urethra, creating a protective environment against harmful bacteria. L. rhamnosus has the ability to break down sugars in the gut, preventing the proliferation of harmful bacteria. It has known antibacterial activity against E. coli, salmonella and candida. Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora, support healthy yeast balance, and promote GI comfort.
The acid-resistant, shelf stable capsules can withstand destruction by stomach acid, and deliver the probiotics to the intestine where they can exert benefits and improve symptoms of IBS. ProFlora 5 can also influence the activity of the immune system by regulating inflammation, and release protective substances to prevent harmful bacteria from taking hold and creating disease. Probiotic bacteria can also improve bowel function and regularity, improving the symptoms of IBS.
