This supplement contains 4 high quality strains of live cultures, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52, all proven to survive to reach the gut alive, and to survive in warmer, more humid climates.
What's more, the particular strains in this live cultures supplement have been shown to survive at higher temperatures, making this a suitable travel companion for destinations with hotter, more humid climates than that of the UK. The high quality nature of this supplement gives travellers the increased confidence to enjoy their holidays anxiety-free. Make this shelf-stable and cabin friendly product your travel essential for far flung locations such as Egypt, India and Thailand.
Strains in this probiotic supplement:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52: is a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain of acidophilus has been well studied to survive your stomach acidity and biliary salts; and to travel to the intestines without damage. L. acidophilus Rosell-52 has also been through numerous in vitro tests.
- Saccharomyces boulardii: is a unique yeast sold widely across Europe, especially in France and Germany. S. boulardii has undergone extensive scientific research documenting its safety.
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11: is a natural component of the intestinal friendly bacteria; the rhamnosus species is one of the most studied in the world of live cultures. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 from OptiBac has been proven to resist bile and gastric acidity over pH 3 - therefore if taken at mealtimes (when pH is around 4), it will pass through the stomach without being damaged.
- Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175:__ is a well-researched strain that has been shown to survive to reach the gut alive.
Each capsule provides 5 billion live cultures.
