    GR8-dophilus -8 probiotics in 4 billion potency + FOS

    Probiotics favourably alter the body's microflora balance to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, boost immune function & increase resistance to infection.
    Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum are probiotics which are 'good' bacteria, residing in the small and large intestine respectively. Acidophilus and bifidobacteria may manufacture B vitamins, including niacin, folic acid, biotin, and vitamin B6.

    Probiotics maintain a healthy balance of intestinal (and vaginal) flora by increasing acidity and inhibiting the reproduction of many harmful bacteria.

    Probiotics & Digestive Health: Replenishing the body with GR8-dophilus probiotics may be helpful for:

  • Digestion: Enzymes secreted by probiotic bacteria aid digestion.
  • Lactose intolerance: Acidophilus is a source of lactase, the enzyme needed to digest milk sugar, which is lacking in lactose-intolerant people.
  • Traveller's Tummy: The incidence of "traveller’s tummy," caused by pathogenic bacteria in drinking water or undercooked foods, can be reduced by the preventive use of probiotics.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's, IBS): Diarrhoea flushes intestinal microorganisms out of the gastrointestinal tract, leaving the body vulnerable to opportunistic infections. Replenishing the beneficial bacteria with probiotic supplements can help prevent new infections.

    Probiotics & Infection/Immune Health: Probiotic bacteria produce substances called bacteriocins, which act as natural antibiotics to kill undesirable microorganisms.

    Probiotics are important in recolonising the intestine during and after antibiotic use. Probiotic supplements replenish the beneficial bacteria, preventing up to 50% of infections occurring after antibiotic use.

    Probiotics & Womens Health: Regular ingestion of GR8-dophilus probiotic bacteria may help prevent vaginal yeast infection.

    A review of the research on probiotics and vagianl health concluded that both topical and oral use of acidophilus can prevent yeast infection caused by candida overgrowth.

    GR8-dophilus Probiotics: GR8-dophilus contains Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum.

    Taking a probiotic is only helpful when it actually reaches the target area of the gut and many experts believe this is best achieved using a supplement rather than functional, probiotic foods. GR8-dophilus is enteric coated to withstand destruction by stomach acid and dissolve in the gut to maximizes the body's absorption of GR8-dophilus probiotics.
