Douglas Laboratories - Multi-Probiotic - 4 Billion - 100 Capsules

Support for the intestinal microflora and immune health

Probiotic dietary lactobacilli colonize the intestinal tract, depending on the specific bacterium-to-host affinity. Bacteria are continually in competition for colonization space. The original bacterial colonies have an advantage over transient bacteria; nevertheless, the composition of the intestinal microflora is dynamic and constantly changing. If harmful microorganisms proliferate, the equilibrium is disturbed, and it becomes difficult even for indigenous bacteria to maintain their necessary territory to colonize the intestine. Antibiotics tend to kill off both beneficial and harmful bacteria, and thus may also disturb the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microorganisms.

Consuming a probiotic supplement regularly increases the chance to establish and maintain a healthy population of beneficial intestinal microorganisms. Once established, a normal intestinal microflora rich in lactobacilli creates acidic conditions that are unfavorable for the settlement of pathogenic microorganisms. The ability for probiotic cultures to survive stomach acidity and pH has been in question. Lactobacillus rhamnosus is one of the most widely studied probiotics, noted and valued for its ability to survive in the harsh conditions of the digestive and urinary tracts.

Studies have shown that, taken regularly, L. rhamnosus can be an effective supplement in promoting and maintaining digestive tract health. In vitro studies of Bifidobacteria have shown that some strains are resistant to low pH in the stomach and bile acids in the duodenum. L. acidophilus La14 incorporates proprietary cryoprotectant agents and stabilizers to maintain cell viability in low pH conditions, and decreases the potential of bacterial transformations of primary bile acid. Lactobacillus and bifidobacterium can also support bile acid deconjugation and potentially promote fecal excretion. Prebiotics, such as FOS, are carbohydrates that have short molecular chains. They function as non-digestible ingredients that can positively affect selected groups of beneficial intestinal microflora. While probiotics merely add beneficial microflora, prebiotics provide an energy source so that beneficial colonies of microflora can flourish.
