Additional Information about Lactobacillus Acidophilus:
It is naturally found in the body, usually in the intestines, mouth or female genitals. This bacteria does not cause disease but rather produces vitamin K as well as lactase. Lactase is the enzyme that breaks down lactose. Lactobacillus Acidophilus helps the body absorb nutrients and maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria. Among its benefits are: supporting the body during diarrhea, lactose intolerance, eczema, asthma, vaginal infection and IBS.
Additional Information about Bifidobacterium:
Is a natural part of the bacterial flora in the human body. It helps promote good digestion, boosts the immune system and produce lactic and acetic acid that help control the pH level of the intestines. It also helps minimise the growth of Candida albicans, E. coli and other harmful bacteria.
Additional Information about Oligofructose:
A form of dietary fibre naturally found in vegetables and fruits. It is a prebiotic that serves as food for good bacteria that live in the intestines. It is a water soluble fibre and helps boost the feeling of fullness, reduce hunger and lower calorie intake.
