Probiotics

Probiotics refer to friendly bacteria which colonise the digestive tract.  Friendly, because they work in many helpful ways for our body. They are generally known to be good for digestive complaints such as IBS and other related problems. They also help boost the immune system, prevent harmful bacteria from taking hold (helping to prevent infections) and help us to absorb nutrients from our diet. A proper balance between the beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria must be kept to maintain a healthy, regular digestive system.

Live yoghurts commercially available also contain live bacteria, but often they are not high enough in probiotics to be of therapeutic levels. And it is not always possible to know what strains they are using and how much they contain. In fact it is estimated that 1 capsule of a standard capsule it is equivalent to having 8 pots of yoghurt.

These bacteria are easily destroyed, the ranges we stock on the shelves have been enhanced. The00 stability of the bacteria are freeze dryed an acid stable matrix that helps to protect them from stomach acid by up to 50 times. In a recent independent study not many product can live up to their label claim.
