Contains the finest probiotic strains specifically formulated to aid digestive health.
Maintenance of gut health is key in avoiding diverticulosis and its progressive form, diverticulitis. Providing the large intestine with beneficial bacteria will not only help relieve constipation, but also prevents infection if diverticula are present. Probiotics are good bacteria, and they work by blocking the harmful bacteria from attaching to the colonic wall, which is how diverticulitis progresses in the first place.
In a clinical study comprising of ninety patients (36 men, 54 women, mean age 67.5 y, range 39 to 84 y), previously affected by symptomatic uncomplicated diverticular disease, seventy-five patients or (88.2%) were symptom free after the 12th month of treatment with probiotics like Lactobacillus casei.
Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used in alternative medicine as a possibly effective aid (in children or adults) in preventing diarrhea caused by antibiotics, travel, chemotherapy, or hospitalization. Lactobacillus acidophilus is also possibly effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome, bacterial vaginal infection, colic in babies, lung infections in children, skin problems in children who are allergic to milk, and other conditions.
Bifidobacterium lactis (B. lactis) is a multi-purpose probiotic bacteria that lives in the gut. It is a powerful strain that has been proven to fight tumor growths, improve digestion, and enhance immune system functions. B. lactis is also responsible for breaking down body waste and aiding in the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the gut.
Lactobacillus plantarum 299v has been shown to have an exceptional ability to provide digestive and protective support with strong adhesion and growth within the gut. These organisms seem to be able to reverse some of the pathology and associated symptoms in even severe conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Of the many probiotic strains commonly added to probiotic supplements, Lactobacillus paracasei is one of the best. It’s key for digestive function, boosting the immune system, and even energy levels. One study even showed that the strain could be helpful for fighting infections.
Once in the body, L. paracasei moves into the gut, where it, like other strains, starts to work its magic. Research suggests it could be a natural approach for infant diarrhea. Because of this, some infant formulas already contain this probiotic strain. There’s also a promising study examining its effectiveness for relieving symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.
When the capsule is swallowed it will come in contact with the stomach acid. The acid will then dissolve the capsule. The complex marine polysaccharides will form a secondary internal capsule protecting the living probiotic cells from the acid. This ensures better survival of the living beneficial probiotic bacteria.
