This probiotic supplement provides three different types of "friendly" bacteria that help support healthy gastro-intestinal function. Stress, disease, improper nutrition, antibiotics, and medications may upset the delicate balance of microflora in the gastrointestinal tract. Supplementation with this product can help restore a proper balance of beneficial microorganisms and support intestinal functions in numerous ways. Three Probiotic Strains: Three compatible probiotic species are used to help regulate intestinal function, support proper digestion, and promote a favorable ratio of good to bad bacteria. Lactobacillus helveticus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, and Bifidobacterium longum work together to reestablish a healthy balance of lactic acid bacteria in the gastrointestinal system. These probiotic strains inhibit the adherence and multiplication of pathogenic microbes such as Escherichia coli, (the cause of "Montezuma's Revenge"), Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella (common causes of food poisoning), and Candida albicans (yeast infections), and other pathogens. Acid-Stable Delivery System: Probiotics are living microorganisms that need to be protected from heat, humidity, and stomach acid in order to provide beneficial effect. To help protect the fragile organisms from the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach, a vegetable fatty acid lipid layer is used to encase and protect the beneficial bacteria from destruction by stomach acid. This helps ensure that adequate amounts of live bacterium reach the small intestinal environment where they are needed. Does Not Require Refrigeration: Typical probiotic formulations require refrigeration to preserve the viability of the microorganisms. The special fatty acid coating used increases shelf-life at normal room temperature (up to approximately 75°F) so that refrigeration is not necessary. This is a good choice for individuals who wish to support a healthy balance of friendly intestinal flora.
Supplying 3.0 billion viable microorganisms as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, and Bifidobacterium longum.
Highly bioavailable, stable probiotic blend.
Experts agree that to qualify as a high quality probiotic supplement, the beneficial bacteria must reach the site of action in the gut in quantities large enough to produce the desired effect.
This is accomplished In Essential Probiotics by using three compatible microbial strains with clinically documented activity and implantation ability: L. acidophilus R0052, L. rhamnosus R0011, and Bifidobacterium longum.
Patent-pending microencapsulation technology is used to coat the fragile bacteria with vegetable derived fatty acids, thus helping to protect the microorganisms from destruction by stomach acid and thereby enhance viability. This process also dramatically increases shelf-life at room temperature so that refrigeration is not required. TheraDophilusTM is a good choice for helping to reestablish a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria diminished by stress, infection, antibiotics, medication, or other factors.
