ProFlora 50B is a dairy free probiotic that contains 50 billion bacteria from 5 broad-spectrum strains in acid-resistant capsules. Intended for everyday use, Proflora 50B includes 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, IBD and constipation.
L.acidophilus and B. longum have been shown to promote healthy function of the colon and maintain the intestinal 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 also 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 relieve constipation.
The acid-resistant capsules which can withstand destruction by stomach acid, and deliver the probiotics to the intestine where they can exert benefits and improve symptoms of IBS. They can also influence the activity of the immune system by regulating inflammation, and secrete protective substances to prevent pathogens from taking hold and creating disease. ProFlora 50B is suitable for those who need a stronger probiotic such as those currently taking antibiotics, those with recurring infections, compromised immune systems, and the over 55s.
