Pileje Lactibiane Travel is a probiotic dietary supplement, containing 3 precisely defined strains of lactic acid bacteria - Lactobacillus acidophilus LA 201, Lactobacillus casei LA 205 and Lactobacillus plantarum LA 301. The preparation contains as much as 20 billion living strains in one capsule, which contribute to increasing the amount of pro-health bacterial microflora of the intestines as well as prevent and alleviate the course of intestinal infections, often happening during travel.
In order to acknowledge a given bacterial strain as a probiotic strain, its pro-health properties need to be supported by documented research . Not all bacteria of lactic acid are probiotics, as not all of them have the same, positive influence on the human organism. Probiotic strains have letter-number signs e.g. LA 201. The preparations containing strains described in such a way have been carefully studied and guarantee positive influence on the organism.
Travelling, especially to exotic places may negatively influence the state of the intestines and consequently the health of the whole organism. Stress, change of climate and products we eat, several hours of travel and worse sanitary conditions increase the risk of developing traveler's diarrhea - one of the most common ailments that tourists suffer from. Traveler’s diarrhea is most often caused by infection with enterotoxigenic and enteroaggregative strains Escherichia coli. Unpleasant ailments appear suddenly and quickly force tourists to change their plans.
Carefully selected bacterial strains from the family Lactobacillus restore intestinal microflora and limit colonization and proliferation of pathogenic bacteria. It results in shortening the time of duration and alleviating the course of the traveler’s diarrhea. Bacterial strains may also prevent the development of this disease. For prophylaxis, start supplementation 2 days before your trip and continue until you come back.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a probiotic bacterial strain inhabiting mainly intestines, vagina and urethra. It produces lactic acid and other organic acids as well as bacteriocins (acidophillin, acidolin and lactacin), which apart from the desired decrease of pH of the environment, inhibit the adhesion of potentially disease-causing bacteria, i.a. E. coli, S. aureus or Helicobacter. Moreover, L. acidophilus takes part in the synthesis of some B-group vitamins - niacin, folic acid and vitamin B6.
Lactobacillus casei are bacteria naturally inhabiting the digestive tract, constituting a dominating species among lactic acid bacteria. Apart from the synthesis of lactic acid and bacteriocins, some strains of L. casei support digestive processes. By stimulating the process of phagocytosis and the activity of lymphocytes B and T, they increase the protection of the organism from pathogens.
Lactobacillus plantarum produces bacteriocins (plantacin, plantaricin A and plantaricin S/K) and other compounds with bactericidal and bacteriostatic influence on pathogenic microbes. It is successfully used in decreasing food allergies. Some strains L. plantarum are especially recommended in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). They effectively reduce the ailments of the digestive system accompanying this disease, especially stomachaches. Additionally, they improve microcirculation in intestinal mucous membrane and stimulate the immune system.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic disease, the symptoms of which become especially troublesome during travel. The ailments intensifying especially under the influence of stress primarily include: strong stomachaches, diarrheas, constipations, nausea, heartburn and fatigue. Probiotic bacteria may effectively decrease the intensity of these symptoms, resulting in considerable improvement of life quality.
To sum up, Pileje Lactibiane Travel is a high-quality dietary supplement, containing carefully researched, live probiotic bacteria strains. It is especially recommended in preventing and alleviating the course of traveler’s diarrhea, during travel, in irritable bowel syndrome, immunity drop as well as allergies and food intolerance.
The key to a desired effect of the preparation is systematic supplementation, as probiotic bacteria do not colonize the intestines for good, but only temporarily.
Simultaneous application of a prebiotic preparation creates beneficial conditions for the growth and development of probiotic bacteria in the digestive system, increasing their activity.
Established in 1991, PiLeJe is a company that produces probiotics and prebiotics, specialised in the area of micronutrition and phytotherapy. The founder of the company, Dr. Christian Lecler, had observed that traditional medical practice activities start only once pathological lesions have already occurred, and too little attention is paid to preventive actions and attempts at maintaining health for longer.
PiLeJe is a multidisciplinary team of specialists whose main mission is helping to improve the comfort of life and maintain permanently good health with the use of high-quality products adjusted to the individual needs of every person.

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 casei?
Lactobacillus casei is a bacterium of the genus Lactobacillus which ferments lactic acid. The substrates for lactic acid production are sugar compounds, such as glucose or lactose. Due to its ability to break down the disaccharide lactose to simpler carbohydrates, the bacterium can reduce dairy intolerance. It is found in the urinary bladder where it thus competes with pathogens of the urinary system and reduces infections and the incidence of cancer.
Lactobacillus casei supports the treatment of ailments associated with stomach ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori and treats diarrhoea related to Clostridium difficile infection. Promising results of studies were obtained in relation to the influence of this probiotic strain on the occurrence of allergies. Therefore, its positive effect has been demonstrated on acne, dermatitis, respiratory tract infections, problems with oral cavity and rheumatoid arthritis. By controlling digestion, it helps to maintain a healthy cholesterol ratio.
Lactobacillus casei is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
