Many health conscious individuals today are becoming aware of the role of beneficial bacteria in the human body. Healthy bacteria in the gut act as a barrier against harmful bacteria by preventing their attachment to the intestinal lining. Disturbances in this delicate gastrointestinal microflora increase the susceptibility to pathogens and raise the risk of infection and disease. Probiotics help to re-establish and support a normal bacterial microflora in the intestines, particularly after antibiotic use.
Probiotic-3 is a unique probiotic formula that contains three bacterial strains with specific health-promoting attributes: Enterococcus faecium T-110, Clostridium butyricum TO-A, and Bacillus subtilis TO-A. While these three strains are almost unheard of in the North American market, they have been widely used in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia for over 50 years. Each has been shown to survive the stomach’s acidic environment, bile acids and digestive enzymes, meaning they survive transit through the body, reaching the intestines alive and intact.
Over 30 clinical studies on Probiotic-3 in Japanese and English have highlighted such health benefits as reducing allergies, improving immunity, fighting colds and flu, promoting detoxification, reducing intestinal symptoms such as bloating and constipation and reducing travelers and antibiotic-induced diarrhea.
Although associated with spoiled food and infections, not all bacteria are harmful. As humans, we carry more bacterial cells in our bodies than human cells. Most of these bacteria are found in our gastrointestinal tract where billions of bacteria reside in a delicate equilibrium that is essential to our health. This mutually beneficial relationship between enterobacteria and the human body is important for the maturation of the immune system, for a normal inflammatory response, for a healthy gastrointestinal tract, and for many other aspects of health. The intestinal flora is essential for digestion and produces several important nutrients from otherwise indigestible foodstuffs.
While antibiotic use is sometimes necessary in order to fight infection, it can cause disturbances in the delicate gastrointestinal microflora, resulting in increased susceptibility to pathogens and elevated risk of infection and disease. Probiotics help to re-establish and support a normal bacterial microflora in the intestines, which act as a barrier against harmful bacteria by preventing their attachment to the intestinal lining.
Probiotic-3 is a probiotic formula that has been used clinically for more than 50 years in Japan and across Asia. Extensive clinical research has highlighted the following beneficial effects of the three strains used in Probiotic-3:
Enterococcus faecium T-110
E. faecium T-110 is a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract that produces lactic acid as a byproduct of carbohydrate fermentation. Lactic acid reduces the gastrointestinal pH thus preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.
Clostridium butyricum TO-A
C. butyricum TO-A is also a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract and breaks down dietary fiber into several beneficial nutrients, one of which is butyric acid. Butyric acid is an important source of nourishment for the colonocytes (the cells of the lower gastrointestinal tract) and reduces inflammation and intestinal permeability. This strain has also been shown to have antagonistic effects against several pathogenic bacterial strains such as C. difficile, H. pylori and E. coli.
Bacillus subtilis TO-A
Bacillus subtilis TO-A supports the growth of E. faecium and C. butyricum as well as the growth of several strains of the beneficial Bifidobacterium species.
Take 2-3 capsules daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. Take at least 2-3 hours before or after taking antibiotics.
