Probio Forte, an optimal combination of probiotics
Probio Forte is a blend of probiotics, each capsule providing 8 billion micro-organisms from five different, but complementary, strains of lactic bacteria.
¬§ Probiotics are live microorganisms which, when ingested in sufficient quantities, benefit our health by improving the balance of intestinal microflora. A healthy gastrointestinal system, with appropriate production of mucosa and colonisation of bacteria, prevents the invasion of harmful bacteria and the spread of inflammatory problems and acts against pathological mechanisms.
¬§ Probiotics help to restore the integrity of mucosa and the balance of microflora. They also benefit the immune system, stimulate a number of elements involved in the defence and integrity of intestinal cells, and boost the immune response to certain infections.
Research has shown that probiotics:
Short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides are obtained from sugar beet, by means of an enzyme produced by Aspergillus niger, a microscopic fungus widely used in the food industry. The effects of short-chain oligosaccharides have been demonstrated in over 150 scientific and medical studies, which have investigated the effects of daily consumption of 2.5 g.
¬§ Fructo-oligosaccharides selectively nourish the bifidobacteria that benefit intestinal flora. A notable positive effect on the proliferation of these bacteria was observed at a dose of 2.5 g fructo-oligosaccharides a day, an effect which increased with doses up to 10 g a day. The bifidogenic effect is apparent after only four days of taking fructo-oligosaccharides.
¬§ Fructo-oligosaccharides :
- improve digestive health :
- after 6 weeks' consumption, abdominal pain was reported to have decreased significantly. 96% of subjects observed a noticeable improvement in their digestion and 83% reported an ...
Scientific and medical journals are filled with articles on the activity and benefits of probiotics - their value to human health continues to generate optimism ‚Ä¶
¬§ Probiotics are living micro-organisms which, when consumed in sufficient quantities, produce systemic and digestive benefits. Among the many probiotic strains, the lactobacillus genus of bacteria is particularly well represented. Colonising the intestines and vagina, lactobacillus has various effects and in particular, can:
‚ÄĘ relieve irritable bowel syndrome;
‚ÄĘ restore the balance of microflora;
‚ÄĘ reduce various types of diarrhoea;
‚ÄĘ optimise the body’s natural immune function ;
‚ÄĘ protect against the flu virus;
‚ÄĘ prevent colonisation of the gastric mucosa byHelicobacter pylori.
, a strain naturally present in human breast milk, is thus part of the group of micro-organisms that are essential fo ...
