What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are a type of living bacteria that actually benefit your health when taken in the appropriate amounts. This friendly bacteria, located in the gastrointestinal tract, comes in a variety of forms. With more than 400 different bacteria living in the human gastrointestinal tract, the most common forms of intestinal probiotics are L. acidophilus and Bifidobacteria bifidum.

These bacteria act as balancing agents for non-friendly, pathogenic, gut-bacteria such as Candida or E. coli. When the “good-guys” are not present enough, a number of bacteria-related health problems such as digestive upset, headaches, sluggishness, irritability, cadidiasis (an overgrowth of the bacteria Candida albicans), and even anxiety can ensue

Medicines from Nature Flora Max Plus

FloraMax Pro Synbiotic is a high-strength 31 Billion PLUS cell formula with both PRE & PRO biotic action in a single once a day dosage.

We use over THIRTY ONE BILLION PLUS of these prevalent species per capsule... prevalent meaning the ones that are most commonly found in the intestines... to start a ‘vacuum’ effect in which the negative bacteria are crowded out leaving the beneficial species space to proliferate to normal healthy levels.

Why choose these two beneficial strains? There have been over 120 published, peer-reviewed studies on DDS-1 acidophilus and it has specific resistance to bile salts and stomach acids which could otherwise destroy beneficial flora before they reach their destination. DDS-1 also inhibits the growth of 23 toxin-producing organisms while assisting in the digestion of proteins and carbohydrates and importantly is very stable under normal storage conditions.

Bifidobacterium are gram-positive anaerobic organisms, which occupy the large intestine and assist in a range of functions including the symptomatic relief of medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
