Seeking Health Probiota 12 is a dietary supplement, which is a complex solution when it comes to the choice of the probiotic. The combination of as many as 12 bacteria strains in more than 26 billion CFU (colony forming units) per portion will complement each deficiency of intestinal microflora.
The composition of the product contains the following bacteria strains:
Lactobacillus rhamnosus – often used as the component of yogurts and other milk products to maintain longer use-by date. It effectively counteracts rotavirus diarrhea, both in adults and children. It was also proven that it has positive influence on problems with excess weight and obesity. According to the research, this stain improves insulin sensitivity and decreases fat accumulation (by increasing the production of adiponectin). It is also interesting that it demonstrates positive influence on regulation of meal intake during reducing diets, especially in terms of faster hunger satisfaction. It is also worth mentioning that it has the ability to decrease the risk of respiratory tract infections, atopic dermatitis and decreases intestinal permeability in children. It may also have anti-stress effect by regulating the receptors of GABA neurotransmitters.
Bifidobacterium bifidum – it occurs mainly in mucous membrane of the large intestine and female reproductive system. Its main task is to prevent the development of disease-causing bacteria, especially E.coli.
Bifidobacterium infantis belongs to a group of anaerobic lactic acid bacteria with a great ability to treat bowel dysfunction. They reduce diarrhoea and flatulence, consequently lessening the discomfort. Because of that, they are often recommended to persons with irritable bowel syndrome. They are said to be beneficial to immune health. What is more, their use in newborns proves to be an effective aid in the treatment of intestinal inflammation in toddlers.
Lactobacillus acidophilus – occur naturally in the digestive system, oral cavity and is also the component of microflora of female reproductive system. They limit the development of unbeneficial yeasts Candidia albicans, mainly in the female reproductive system.
Lactobacillus casei – mainly occurs in the human intestines and oral cavity. It contributes to increasing immunity (increased level of IgA, decreased risk of upper respiratory tract infections), decreases the risk of inflammations (stabilizing the level of IL-10 in case of autoimmune encephalopathy), increases the production and activity of natural defense cells of the organism.
Lactobacillus plantarum – demonstrates high antioxidant activity and supports maintaining proper intestinal tightness. It also supports the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, by weakening gas-forming in the digestive system. Its positive anti-depressant influence is also indicated (the increase of BDNF of the hippocampus). It also supports the treatment of inflammations (reduction of the level of Interleukin 1-beta).
Lactobacillus salivarius – a bacterium in the digestive system, mainly responsible for increasing immunity to pathogens (reduces the level of pro-inflammatory cytokines, decreasing at the same time relocation of pathogens from the digestive system). It is an especially desirable effect in order to alleviate the symptoms of pancreas inflammation. It also mitigates the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and skin inflammations in children.
Streptococcus thermophilus – is one of the first microorganisms inhabiting the digestive system, conditions proper maturation and homeostasis of epithelial tissue of the intestines. It has influence on the immune system by anti-inflammatory properties (inhibition of Th17 response), stimulates the level of natural defense cells (production of lymphocytes T and macrophages). It also works well as a protective element in antibiotic therapy.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus – is one of the strains being the component of the products supporting the therapy of the inflammations of the large intestine. It may be used, as a protective element in antibiotic therapy.
Lactobacillus paracasei – is the part of natural intestinal microflora. It demonstrates inhibiting properties on the development of pathogens of the digestive system (i.a. Salmonella enterica and Heliobacter pylori), it is the component of products supporting therapies against large intestine inflammation. It was also proven that it is effective towards the treatment of hay fever in the application of this strain.
Bifidobacterium lactis – are located mainly in the final section of the ileum and large intestine. It was proven that it has positive influence on maintaining proper level of the markers related to weight loss and sugar level (BMI, cholesterol, LDL and insulin immunity as well as inflammatory marker levels were decreased in experimental research). Studies also demonstrate increased level of immunity (increased secretion of IgA), decreased susceptibility to colds, upper respiratory tract infections, toxic infections (caused by pathogens Salmonella, E. Coli and Heliobacter pylori) and allergic complications. They also demonstrate antioxidant properties and support for oxidative enzymes of the organism.
Bifidobacterium breve – is the component of drugs supporting therapy against large intestine inflammation. It stimulates the development of digestive system microflora in new-born babies, prevents necrotizing enterocolitis and also takes part in maintaining proper large intestine permeability. It influences increased immunity, especially anti-inflammatory, related to autoimmune diseases (allergies; regulates Th2 response, levels up Th1/Th2 balance and decreases the production of IgE). Studies also proved support in the treatment of obesity (in adults, the strain considerably decreased adipose tissue mass, the level of gamma-GTO and the level of C-reactive protein).
To sum up, Seeking Health ProBiota12 is a perfect choice for people who are looking for a complex and safe probiotic solution from a renowned company. The strains contained in the product fill each eventual niche in the human intestinal microflora and work well in long-lasting, prophylactic application as well as therapeutically in diagnosed deficits of microorganisms in the digestive system.
It is worth paying attention that we tend to forget about a solid probiotic in antibiotic therapy, which is often reflected in chronic stomach disorders as well as longer time of convalescence. Also in long-lasting supplementation, the probiotic is viewed only as a subtle additive, which often decreases general immunity of the organism. In case of long-lasting weakness, we should think whether our microflora is in the proper state.
Seeking Health is a brand which makes sure that the products it produces are characterized by high quality and purity, therefore the majority of their products is free from magnesium stearate, allergens and GMO.
This brand is directed at fighting the causes and not the symptoms, therefore the aim of the company is primarily to help in ensuring optimal work of the digestive system, among others by launching on the market high-class products supporting digestion and regenerating and nourishing the intestines, which consequently improves bioavailability of the substances beneficial to health and increases organism’s resistance to the effect of toxins coming from external environment.
