Natural Factors Cal`dophilus with FOS
L. rhamnosus is probably the most important probiotic strain for health of the mouth to the small intestine. It protects by coating the mucus, preventing toxins from reaching the blood. It even results in better smelling breath. L. rhamnosus survives temperature extremes and is resistant to bile salts and stomach acid, ferments 23 sugars and inhibits negative bacteria and yeast growth. It is hardier and keeps better without refrigeration.
Compared to L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus is 8 to 10 times more prolific, has a larger spectrum of sugar fermentation (important for people with milk sugar intolerance), has better control over putrefactive microbes, and is more effective at inhibiting disease-causing pathogens.
L. acidophilus produces lactic acid which keeps a proper pH balance in the small intestine, inhibiting yeast growth. Studies have show that L. acidophilus is effective in reducing lactose intolerance, inhibiting undesirable organisms in the intestine, reducing cholesterol levels and controlling diarrhea.
L. casei ferments large numbers of carbohydrates, is effective in the treatment of intestinal infections, inhibits tumours in mice, and increases immunity in humans against bacterial and viral infections.
B. longum is effective against putrefactive and pathogenic bacteria. It has anticarcinogenic activity, deconjugates bile salts, helps to synthesize some of the B complex vitamins and may lower the content of serum cholesterol.
FOS (fructooligosaccharides) are short-chained indigestible sugars found in chicory. They increase the amount of healthy bacteria in the colon. As they are indigestible, they pass through the small intestine into the colon intact where friendly bacteria feed on them and multiply. FOS is often referred to as a prebiotic and is the ideal addition to a probiotic product as they keep healthy amounts of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract.
