Pharma Nord Priobiotic (60s)
What are lactic acid bacteria?
Lactic acid bacteria are a natural part of our intestinal flora. These benign, yet powerful, bacteria protect us against intruding bacteria and virus of hostile nature. The amount of lactic acid bacteria is negatively influenced by factors such as:
- smoking, drinking and taking medicine (e.g. antibiotics)
- pathogenic bacteria (from food sources or airborne)
- age (older people often suffer from stomach problems)
Why you should take Probiotic Pharma Nord
Probiotic Pharma Nord protects against traveller's diarrhoea on trips to climates where one is exposed to foreign bacteria types. By bolstering your intestinal defence with Probiotic, starting a few weeks before you leave, you will be significantly better protected against undesirable digestive problems that typically occur under such circumstances. In addition, Probiotic Pharma Nord may help to maintain a healthy immune system, since the intestinal tract forms an important barrier against harmful organisms. Probiotic Pharma Nord also offers protection against the inevitable loss of lactic acid bacteria that occurs as a result of taking antibiotics.
Probiotic Pharma Nord contains two strains of lactic acid bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-2) and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bb-12), which have been freeze-dried and mixed with gel-forming polysaccarides that encapsulate the bacteria in an insoluble gel matrix. This matrix remains intact while passing through the low-pH environment of the human stomach, but as soon as the matrix reaches the duodenum, it dissolves, releasing its load of bacterial "warriors".
Normally, a considerable amount of the lactic acid bacteria would be killed off by the low pH-value in the human stomach acid, but Probiotic's protective gel-matrix effectively prevents this from happening. This increases the survivability and, consequently, the efficacy of the preparation. Also, the fact that the lactic acid bacteria are released as far up as in the duodenum, where many pathogenic bacteria exist, improves their effect.
