Master Supplements TruFlora Bio-Cleansing Formula - 32 Capsules
TruFlora Bio-Cleansing Formula by Master Supplements
Master Supplements TruFlora Bio-Cleansing Formula combines powerful probiotic strains and fiber-digesting enzymes in a formulation that can be used alone or rotated with other probiotics to enhance overall probiotic effectiveness. Used alone, TruFlora colonizes intestinal contents (food in small intestine, waste in colon) and prevents domination by harmful microorganisms when they are first ingested. Used together with other probiotics, particularly those that colonize intestinal surfaces, TruFlora creates a comprehensive Internal Probiotic Culture (IPC) where both surfaces and contents are colonized.
TruFlora delivers 15 billion probiotic CFU and 1400 units of betaglucan digesting power deep into the intestinal tract. This exerts powerful probiotic action: The probiotics produce bio-cleansing quantities of lactic acid, the enzymes digest betaglucans that constitute cell walls of Candida yeast and other microorganisms. Net result: Faster recovery and faster return to normal bowel function and regularity.
Probiotics – What are they and can they help?
Probiotics, one of the fastest growing categories of dietary supplements, are products containing beneficial Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species of bacteria. Probiotic bacteria colonize the intestinal tract and help maintain a healthy microflora that stops the overgrowth of undesireable or harmful microorganisms. When a person is deficient in probiotics the immune system is not operating at peak strength and this may predispose the person to experience an acute reaction to food poisoning microorganisms such as salmonella and E. Coli. Such a person may react negatively to a lower dose of Salmonella or E. Coli compared to a person with a healthy, up-regulated immune system.Where do probiotics come from?
Although some yogurts contain probiotic bacteria they do not deliver a high enough dose of live probiotic cells (measured as CFU or colony forming units) through the acidic stomach into the small intestine. The ability of a product to deliver a sufficient live dose is a critical requirement. The best probiotic effect is obtained with medical strength probiotics such as TruFlora (those delivering at elast 10 billion CFU/dose) - this is the dose recommended by the International Probiotic Association (IPA) and a number of probiotic researchers.But how can a high enough dosage be delivered?
Since the biggest difficulty is getting the necessary dose of probiotic supplements through the acid of the stomach, delivering ample CFUs becomes an issue. Many probiotic supplement markers simply "play the numbers game" and count on about only 5% or less of the product actually surviving long enough to make it to the intestines.
To achieve the best probiotic effect, at least 10 billion CFU/dose is recommended. But how can that dosage be delivered if 95% is killed by stomach acid? The answer lies in an acid proof, deep release delivery system. Right now, TruFlora is one of only two probiotics on the market that has this acid proof delivery system.What Causes Diarrhea?
There are many things that can cause diarrhea. Some of these can include stress or medical conditions such as IBS and Crohn's disease, among others. One of the most common causes of diarrhea is bad bacteria that has been ingested along with the foods you've eaten. These bacteria can cause anything from a minor case of diarrhea, to a severe case that can be life threatening.
We've all heard the about the recent Salmonella outbreaks caused by tainted peanut butter, and now most recently, pistachio nuts. Salmonella along with E.Coli are some of the bad bacteria that can be ingested and cause diarrhea.
Usually we can tolerate a certain level of these bacteria in our system, but depending on how much is ingested or how healthy our intestinal tract is, we can have a very bad reaction to these bacteria that in extreme cases, or if left unchecked, can be life-threatening.Master Supplement Questions & Answers
How is TruFlora different from other probiotics?
TruFlora delivers a combination punch of three unique probiotic strains and two cell-wall digesting enzymes that work fast in the G.I. tract to inhibit undesirable food-borne microorganisms as they are ingested. For example, stopping microorganisms such as Salmonella, E. coli and Candida before they colonize the intestinal tract is key to preventing harmful reactions. TruFlora’s effect is maximized by patented delivery technology that assures viable transport of its active ingredients through harsh stomach acidity (Most probiotics suffer >99% destruction in the stomach!).Can TruFlora help if food-poisoning is suspected?
If TruFlora is taken at a high enough dose immediately after eating contaminated food it can often reduce the effects of food-poisoning. If taken anytime later it may still provide some benefit. TruFlora acts as in A#2 above but also by direct competition with undesirable microorganisms for nutrients. This is called C.E., for competitive exclusion. Salmonella, for example, does not do well in head-to-head competition on a Petri dish against TruFlora’s probiotics. NOTE: If food is eaten that is suspected of containing food-poisoning microorganisms do the following: Take one (1) TruFlora capsule every two (2) hours (up to 12 capsules in 24 hours) and follow with two (2) capsules daily for 10 days.
*Exceptions: Food heavily contaminated with food poisoning microorganisms or microbial toxins can cause food poisoning that cannot be stopped EVEN with high doses of probiotics. Taking probiotics is these situations may speed recovery time.Can TruFlora help reduce Antibiotic-Associated diarrhea?
Yes. Broad spectrum antibiotics cause diarrhea in up to 25% of patients because they kill beneficial microorganisms in addition to the targeted disease causing organisms. If the patient does not replace the beneficial flora with probiotics diarrhea may become chronic. TruFlora can be taken during antibiotic therapy but always allow at least 3 hours separation between the antibiotic dose and the probiotic dose. After completing the antibiotic therapy continue taking TruFlora at one or two capsules daily for 30 days.Can TruFlora be taken with other probiotics?
Yes, it can be taken together with or rotated with other probiotics. Probiotic rotation enhances overall effectiveness by increasing the biodiversity of beneficial strains in the G.I. tract. Many doctors treating diseases that require multiple antibiotics (ex, Lyme Disease) recommend that more than one probiotic brand be taken together or rotated. When rotating TruFlora with another probiotic make sure the second probiotic contains different strains – Theralac is a good choice since its three Lactobacillus and two Bifidobacterium strains stick to intestinal epithelial cells (soft lining) resulting in surface colonization that complements TruFlora’s ability to colonize intestinal contents.Can TruFlora be helped by prebiotics, like soluble fiber?
Yes. TruFlora is a very powerful probiotic that utilizes 3 + 2 Bio-Cleansing technology (3 probiotics + 2 enzymes) and it works effectively without any help. However, prebiotics such as soluble fiber products will increase TruFlora’s probiotic activity by up to two times. This can be used to improve the economy of using TruFlora by reducing the regular dose from two (2) capsules to one (1) capsule weekly or the intensive dose from one (1) capsule daily to one capsule every-other-day.What is the best prebiotic to take with TruFlora?
TruFiber is a new prebiotic containing inulin, partially hydrolyzed guar gum (PHGG) and four-fiber-digesting enzymes that dissolves easily with no grit, taste, or thickening. It's a remarkable advancement in prebiotics, one 3.6 gram serving delivers 14% of teh daily value for fiber and doubles the activity of probiotics such as TruFlora and Teralac.What are the probiotic species in TruFlora and how are they special?
There are three species: Bacillus coagulans (BC-705) or Lactobacillus sporogenes, Lactobacillus plantarum (LP-29), and Lactobacillus salivarius (LS-30). These three probiotics are present at a total viable plate count of 12 billion CFU/capsule guaranteed through expiration (TruFlora is formulated > 24 billion CFU/capsule). These probiotics colonize intestinal contents (food in small intestine, waste in colon) including niches and crevices where intestinal motility is slow. All three possess strong lactic acid-producing activity. Each lot of TruFlora™ is tested for activity and the results are available here.Is TruFlora a good probiotic to take when traveling, how long can it be held without refrigeration?
Yes, the TruFlora formula contains probiotic strains that are quite stable at room temperatures (65-75 F) and can be held at these temperatures for up to 4 months. Also, by functioning in the intestinal contents, TruFlora’s probiotic strains can inhibit many types of undesirable bacteria present in contaminated food or water at the time they are ingested. Traveler’s diarrhea is usually caused by regional E. coli strains that locals are immune to but cause diarrhea in visitors. Petri dish studies confirm that TruFlora’s probiotic strains inhibit many E. coli strains as well as a wide variety of other undesirable bacteria and yeast.Explain the patented delivery system that gets the probiotics and enzymes in TruFlora through the acidic stomach and into the small intestine unharmed?
As with Theralac, the new TruFlora formula is protected by sodium alginate (a natural carbohydrate from seaweed) that forms a protective buffered-gel around the probiotics when they enter the stomach. This gel stays intact, sequestering the sensitive probiotics and enzymes, until it reaches the small intestine where the probiotics and enzymes are released unharmed. The TruFlora formula is protected by U.S. Patents 7,122,370 and 7, 229, 818.How can TruFlora be taken by children or adults who cannot swallow capsules?
Open the capsule and fold the contents into applesauce, yogurt or mashed banana. Folding is key, do not mix: Small, tasteless lumps will form that retain most of the patented acidproof protection. This is important as it assures viable delivery of the probiotics and enzymes through stomach acid.Does TruFlora contain any allergens in the eight groups now recognized by the FDA?
No. TruFlora does not contain: Yeast, Eggs, Corn, Soy, Milk, Casein, Gluten, Peanuts, Shell Fish, or Animal Products. Only three, food-grade, inert, stabilizing ingredients are present: Cellulose, silica, and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).Does TruFlora require refrigeration?
Yes, all probiotics require refrigeration! But TruFlora can be held at room temperature (approx. 65-75 F) for up to 4 months and still meet label guarantees. This is because TruFlora is packaged under Totally Inert Packaging (T.I.P.) conditions in amber glass bottles containing moisture and oxygen absorption packets, inert wadding, a sterile nitrogen fl ush, and double neck seals. To meet label guarantees through expiration be sure to refrigerate and do not hold at room temperature for more than 4 months. TruFlora can be held frozen (at -10 F ro colder) for an indefinite period of time (7 years +)About Master Supplements, Inc.
