How Is It Delivered?
Ultimate FloraMAX 100 Billion includes 10 strains of powdered probiotics which are contained in vegetable capsules. The capsules are sprayed with a unique, water based enteric coating. This coating protects the probiotics from the acidic environment in the stomach, yet still allows them to populate in the intestinal tract.
What does it do?
Ultimate FloraMAX 100 Billion's blend of 10 beneficial bacteria help ensure a healthy microbacterial environment in the intestinal tract.
The term ‘probiotic' means supporting life. Probiotics are friendly, beneficial bacteria. These bacteria (as well as others) are normal inhabitants of the large and small intestines. Probiotics are a very important part of a healthy digestive system. Recent research shows that probiotics help improve gastrointestinal functions, respiratory and allergy responses, as well as help to counter the negative effects of antibiotic use. Probiotics support the immune system, balance the intestinal environment and inhibit the growth of pathogenic organisms (ex. Candida albacans). Further, these beneficial bacteria help the body to produce vitamins, digest foods, and control overgrowth of bad bacteria.
Probiotics normally present a barrier to invading organisms. However when they are impaired through stress, illness, antibiotics treatment, or changes to the diet, they can be disrupted. Bifidobacteria are known to be involved in resisting the colonization of pathogens in the large bowel. Adherence of lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacteria to the cell wall of the intestines has been shown to prevent pathogens such as E-coli, salmonella & Yersina pseudotuberculosis (Macfarlane & Cummings).
How does it work?
There are over 500 different types of bacteria in the digestive system; the two most prevalent are Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium. Bifidobacterium are the most prevalent bacteria in the large intestine, while Lactobacilli are the most prevalent in the small intestine. As we age, studies show that our levels of Bifidobacterium decline, while harmful pathogenic bacteria increase. This is one of the main reasons that intestinal ailments increase as we age.
Ultimate FloraMAX 100 Billion contains therapeutic levels of both Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium, making it the most complete and effective probiotic supplement on the market. Each capsule provides 50 billion active cultures of Bifidobacterium and 50 billion active cultures of Lactobacilli.
Ultimate FloraMAX probiotics use a unique delivery system that protects the bacteria past the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach. This ensures that the beneficial bacteria arrive alive in the intestinal tract where they are able to populate.
