This probiotic has been specifically manufactured to be heat-resistant and, as such, does not require refrigeration, which makes it perfect for travel. It is also micro-encapsulated for acid-resistance and is able to withstand stomach acid, helping the friendly bacteria to reach the colon alive and in optimal condition and therefore able to colonise in the digestive tract.
More about probiotics...
The term 'probiotic' refers to beneficial live micro-organisms which are used as a dietary supplement. Almost all probiotics are bacteria (although some are also yeast organisms, such as Saccharomyces boulardii), and the most popular bacteria used in probiotic supplements come from the Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium family.
Why we need good bacteria
Good health begins with balance, particularly in the gastrointestinal tract, where probiotics can help to support healthy levels of friendly bacteria. Inside our bodies are 20 times as many bacteria as living cells and the role they play in supporting good health is critical. Having the right bacteria helps us to, for example, digest and absorb proteins, produce B vitamins, protect the gut wall, support the immune system and prevent harmful micro-organisms from flourishing and establishing themselves.
The balance of good and bad bacteria
The delicate balance of healthy gut flora can quite easily be disrupted by any number of factors, which can then lead to poor digestion, stomach pain, bloating, constipation, wind and other unpleasant symptoms.
Such factors include:
Such circumstances can provide opportunistic pathogens with the perfect environment to grow and spread, while numbers of beneficial organisms are lower. These bad bacteria can either cause infection directly or produce toxic substances that contribute to inflammation or other diseases, particularly of the digestive tract. In these circumstances, it is important to support the replenishment of healthy levels of good bacteria.
