Pharmabest Vivomixx® is a dietary supplement containing 112 billion colony-forming units of probiotic bacteria per capsule.
VSL#3 – one of the best-tested probiotic formulas in the market, functioning under the name Vivomixx®. It consists of the following bacterial strains: Streptococcus thermophilus DSM24731®, Bifidobacterium longum DSM24736®, Bifidobacterium breve DSM24732®, Bifidobacterium infantis DSM24737®, Lactobacillus acidophilus DSM24735®, Lactobacillus plantarum DSM24730®, Lactobacillus paracasei DSM24733®, Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus DSM24734®.
Why is Vivomixx exceptional?
There is no doubt that it is an exceptional product. The formula used in the composition of the probiotic was developed not only with regard to the individual properties of specific bacteria, but also to the possibility of synergic activity, thanks to which the effects of combining the eight strains can be much better than using each one separately.
The amount of bacteria per portion is also impressive. Ordinary probiotic preparations contain 1 to 10 billion CFU (colony-forming units) of bacteria in average, while in this case it’s as many as 112 billion CFU per capsule, which is more than 100 times more bacteria than in other products! When it comes to health, it is always a good idea to choose top-quality products with the best repute.
Role of microbiome in the organism
In recent years, intestinal bacteria have gained enormous respect in the world of biological sciences, and the range of new information on it is becoming greater every minute. As it turns out, bacteria are neither redundant nor responsible only for the functioning of the bowel and digestion. They have a strong effect on the functioning of the immune system as well by activating toll-like receptors (TLRs) in the intestinal epithelium and initiating the production of appropriate cytokines. Obviously, the expression “immunity comes from the gut” couldn’t be more accurate.
The microorganisms that live in our gastrointestinal tracts produce many substances that are beneficial for the organism. Among them are some vitamins of the B complex that affect energy metabolism and the health of the nervous system, as well as vitamin K2, popular in the dietary world, which participates for example in calcium distribution and can prevent atherosclerosis. The intestines are also the place where conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is produced, known for its slimming properties and often used in fat burners. The proportions of particular bacterial strains in the organism can even determine how your body shape develops!
Intestinal microflora can affect blood sugar concentration, arterial blood pressure and the mood. It is worth mentioning that about 90 per cent of serotonin, known also as the happy hormone, is produced in the intestines!
Protection during antibiotic therapy
Using a probiotic along with an antibiotic allows to limit the unpleasant problems connected with the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. It is also an excellent idea to use a probiotic for some time after the therapy to restore the microbiome destroyed by antibiotics, as the intestinal flora can even take years to go back to its previous state after such a therapy.
Support for functioning of digestive system
Many people, particularly women, are struggling with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) these days. The cause of the syndrome hasn’t been determined yet, so it’s very difficult to fight it. Fortunately, tests confirm the beneficial effect of supplementation with our probiotic on the symptoms of IBS.
According to scientific test results, the formula Vivomixx exhibits great efficacy in alleviating problems connected with diarrhoea, not only that caused by antibiotics. So it seems to be a good idea to check out the poly-probiotic if you feel like your visits in the toilet are much too frequent.
Treating inflammatory bowel diseases
The hottest subject of tests on VSL#3 is its influence on IBD (inflammatory bowel disease). The results of the trials are impressive, as patients who use the preparation can even go into remission. The formula is recommended by many acknowledged institutions, such as the American, German, British, and European Societies of Gastroenterology, as well as many others.
Why are probiotics worth using?
These days, we consume much fewer fermented products than the societies before us did, which means that we provide much fewer bacteria for our intestines. On top of that, we eat large amounts of highly processed food every day that can potentially destroy our positive bacteria. Add to that the low supply of dietary fibre and frequent use of antibiotics, and you have an impressive bundle of factors that distort the composition of the microbiome.
With that in mind, it is good to supplement good bacteria to compensate for the consequences of the lifestyle based in a technologically highly-advanced world and to avoid complications caused by excess pathogens in the bowel.
Pharmabest Vivomixx® is recommended for everyone who struggles with bowel problems. It also proves remarkably effective in fighting inflammatory bowel diseases. It can be helpful as aid for antibiotic therapy and an agent rebuilding the microbiome after the end of treatment.
Vivomixx® is a food product in the form of capsules containing 8 different bacterial strains, lyophilised live lactic bacterial colonies and bifidobacteria in the amount of not less than 112 billion (1.12x1011) colony-forming units (CFU) per capsule.
1-4 capsules a day.
In order to maintain the highest efficiency of the supplement, it should be taken after a cool dish, as high temperature of a meal or liquid which we use to wash down the capsule may kill the bacteria contained in the preparation.
In delicate problems, one capsule a day may be sufficient, however, a daily dose may be increased even up to 4 capsules, adequately to the scale of the problem. 20 days is a minimal period of treatment for achieving optimal effects, however, it is worth continuing even for a few months.

What is Streptococcus thermophilus?
Streptococcus thermophilus (Streptococcus salivarius) – is a kind of bacteria characterised by the ability to ferment milk, generally recognized as safe (GRAS) microorganisms It improves digestion, strengthens immunity, has anticancer and antioxidant properties. It eliminates also chlorine compounds and prevents intestinal and vaginal infections.
Streptococcus thermophilus is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is Bifidobacterium longum?
Bifidobacterium longum is one of the most understood strains of probiotic bacteria naturally populating the human body. Like other bacteria of this kind, it promotes the digestion of lactose and other nutrients. Consequently, it helps absorb properly vitamins and nutrients in specific parts of the digestive tract.
Bifidobacterium longum supports the functioning of the immune system and inhibits the development of pathogens, in particular residing in the female vagina, by synthesising lactic acid, lysozyme and other acidic substances. It contributes to reducing inflammations and lowers cortisol levels. It has also the ability to produce B vitamins.

Bifidobacterium infantis – what is it?
Bifidobacterium infantis is a lactic acid bacterium present in the digestive system. It is an anaerobic bacterium, which can convert carbohydrates into lactic acid.
Bacterium is beneficial for people struggling with irritable bowel syndrome, as it reduces bloating and gas, the risk of diarrhoea and abdominal pain. B. infantis can reduce inflammations associated with particular diseases, such as psoriasis, colitis ulcerosa or chronic fatigue syndrome. What is interesting, it can quickly strengthen the intestinal barrier. Thanks to that, it contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system. It will be also helpful in case of intestinal dysbiosis, as it can fight harmful bacteria, by producing factors which will cause their death and competing over receptors in the intestinal lining to which it could attach.
What is Lactobacillus acidophilus?
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a strain of rod-shaped bacteria with the ability to produce lactic acid which is beneficial to our health. These bacteria reside mainly in the intestinal mucosa. Like other probiotic strains, it can easily survive adverse conditions prevailing in specific sections of the digestive tract. As a result, it passes through the small intestine after oral administration and adheres to epithelial cells, forming small colonies. What is more, the strain was detected in the vagina, cervix and urethra. Owing to that, they can combat numerous diseases and maintain a healthy digestive and genitourinary system by competing with pathogenic microorganisms.
Apart from lactic acid production, the bacteria strain can synthesise also other organic acids which have the ability to inhibit the adhesion and proliferation of such pathogens as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Candida albicans, Shigella, Clostridium, Listeria and Helicobacter. By maintaining the normal pH in the intestines, it promotes the digestion of food and absorption of micro- and macronutrients.
It has been reported that this strain is capable of synthesising vitamin K. Consequently, it supports proper blood clotting and has a positive impact on bone structure.
By synthesising lactase, it can also promote lactose digestion, whereby treating unpleasant digestive ailments after consuming dairy products. It uses many bacteriocins for fighting pathogens, such as acidolin, acidophilin, lactobacillin, lactocin and many more.
It is applied in medicine in the treatment of food poisoning, improving the body’s immunity and treating illnesses with antibiotics. It is a component of many prebiotic, probiotic and functional formulas and various nutritional supplements available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is Lactobacillus plantarum?
Lactobacillus plantarum is a strain of gram-positive, motionless, rod-shaped bacteria which ferment milk in the intestinal environment. These probotic strains are believed to be the most resistant to adverse conditions prevailing in different sections of the digestive tract. Apart from the small intestine, they were detected in the oral cavity and even vagina where they compete with pathogenic microorganisms, protecting the body from bacterial infections, viruses and mycoses.
They affect the vitality of pathogens and synthesis of compounds beneficial to the health of, e.g. lactic acid and short-chain fatty acids. As a result, it normalises intestinal function, thereby ensuring proper digestion and nutrient absorption. By using the lactase enzyme, it has the ability to break down milk sugar which is the cause of many unpleasant digestive ailments in the majority of adults.
It is used in medicine for treating irritable bowel syndrome, problems with digestion and Crohn’s disease. It is used in supplementation as one of the components of complex probiotics available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is Lactobacillus paracasei?
