Douglas Laboratories Multi-Probiotic 15 Billion - 60 Capsules

Douglas Laboratories Multi-Probiotic 15 Billion contains over 15billion beneficial organisms from lactobacillus and bifidobacterium genera with additional benefits of prebiotic fructooligosaccharides.  Oral supplements of live, beneficial intestinal microorganisms for nutritional health and well-being are known as probiotics. Probiotic dietary lactobacilli colonize the intestinal tract. Bacteria are continually in competition for colonization space. The original bacterial colonies have an advantage over transient bacteria. Nevertheless, the composition of the intestinal microflora is dynamic and constantly changing.  If harmful microorganisms proliferate, the equilibrium is disturbed, and it becomes difficult even for indigenous bacteria to maintain their necessary territory to colonize the intestine.  Antibiotics tend to kill off both beneficial and harmful bacteria, and thus may also disturb the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microorganisms.  Various intestinal conditions can compromise the immune system and lower the amounts of healthy intestinal microflora.  When potent probiotic supplements, such as Multi-Probiotic 15 Billion, are supplied regularly, chances are greatly increased for establishing and maintaining a healthy population of beneficial intestinal microorganisms. Once established, a normal intestinal microflora rich in lactobacilli creates acidic conditions that are unfavorable for the settlement of pathogenic microorganisms.

Probiotics have been shown to exert a beneficial support through modification of the immune system host via the gut environment. Clinical trials also suggest that the exposure to microbes through the gastrointestinal tract powerfully shapes immune function. In particular, lactobacilli are considered to induce reactions involvingTh1 cells that benefit allergic diseases.  Research on the L. gasseri strain supplementation has shown a beneficial effect on immunological reactions in school children.  Lactobacillus rhamnosus is one of the most widely studied probiotics, noted and valued for its ability to survive in the harsh conditions of the digestive and urinary tracts. L. rhamnosus is extremely well tolerated by men and women with very rare side effects. Studies have shown that, taken regularly, L.rhamnosus can be an effective supplement in promoting and maintaining digestive tract health.  The ability for probiotic cultures to survive stomach acidity and pH has been in question.  Bifidobacterium was studied in vitro to be extremely resistant to low pH and bile acids in the duodenum. L. acidophilus DDS-1 incorporates proprietary cryoprotectant agents and stabilizers specifically designed to protect the organism and enhance stability. Clinical analysis of DDS-1 and Bifidobacterium also shows increased binding to human intestinal walls and protective effects of intestinal colonization.  Certain bacterial acids in the intestines produce secondary bile acids, which have been implicated as promoters of colon carcinogenesis.  One study indicated that L. acidophilus DDS-1decreased the potential for bacterial transformations of primary bile acid.  Prebiotics are carbohydrates that have short molecular chains. They function as non-digestible ingredients that can positively affect selected groups of beneficial intestinal microflora, such as lactobacillus. While probiotics merely add beneficial microflora, prebiotics affect the intestinal environment so that beneficial colonies of microflora can flourish. By aiding the beneficial microflora’s survival, pathogenic microflora can have a decreased chance of survival.  Multi-Probiotic15 Billion capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support their intestinal microflora with potent amounts of beneficial microorganisms.

Functions
Studies show that a high percentage of adults and children in North America and other developed countries eat less than the minimum daily allowance of 10 or more essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for the dietary management and prevention of chronic diseases. Basic Preventive 5 has been carefully developed to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements without danger of toxic build-up and without side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long-term safety. Beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and B-complex vitamins are included in high-potency amounts because of the vital roles they play in antioxidant protection, energy production and maintenance of healthy blood cells, nervous system, hormonal balance, and more. Minerals and trace elements are provided in their safest and most bioavailable forms, such as amino acid chelates and other scientifically validated and clinically superior forms. The unique inert cellulose tablet coating consistently disintegrates rapidly for better nutrient absorption. Beta-carotene is added to the coating to help preserve nutrient activity and naturally colors each tablet pink.

Indications
Basic Preventive 5 is ideal for individuals with vitamin, mineral and trace element deficiencies due to sub-optimal dietary intake, age, and life style habits. For many individuals, Basic Preventive is the only daily nutritional supplement and antioxidant formula they need to take.
