Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic by Swanson is an advanced synbiotic which contains 16 probiotic and prebiotic (FOS) strains supporting the functioning of the intestines and the whole body system. The formula has been additionally enriched with a complex of minerals from Great Salt Lake
Probiotics and prebiotics – what are they?
Probiotics are active cultures of bacteria and yeasts which live in the human digestive tract. Their role is to maintain the proper physiological flora. They fight pathegenic bacteria and take care of the optimal homeostasis in the intestines.
Prebiotics are substances which are media for “good” bacteria in the digestive system, which are a kind of stimulant for growth of the microorganisms in the body system.
What kind of a preparation do we call a synbiotic?
Synbiotic is a preparation containing both probiotic and prebiotic bacteria which together have the best influence on the maintenance of healthy bacterial flora. It has been proven that the addition of prebiotics has a wide impact on the human health; they accelerate the process of intestinal microflora regeneration, reduce the risk of pathogens colonisation, regulate the level of cholesterol in blood and improve the absorption of such minerals as magnesium, zinc and iron.
The “Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic” synbiotic contains following components:
FOS (fructooligosaccharides) – naturally occur in fruits and vegetables, such as artichoke, chikory, onion and banana. These are the substances called prebiotics. They are resistant to the action of digestive enzymes and support the development of the proper bacterial flora.
Bifidobacterium longum – a strain which is especially helpful during antibiotic treatment; it stimulates the immune system for the more intensive work. It alleviates the irritations within the digestive system.
Lactobacillus acidophilus – also called lactic acid bacteria, is used for the production of dairy products. It participates in the production of B-vitamins. It removes toxins and metabolism by-products from the digestive system.
Bifidobacterium bifidum – helps to maintain the proper pH of the vagina. The bacteria strain is especially helpful in case of accute and chronic diarrhoea. It reduces the risk of E. Coli infection.
Bifidobacterium brave – shows antibacterial and antifungal properties. It relieves constipations, gas, bloating and others ailments of the digestive system.
Bifidobacterium lactis – supports the body system in lactose digestion. Moreover, it has stimulating influence on the immune system, so that it is recommended for people with coeliac disease and ulcerative colitis.
Lactobacillus brevis – improves the functioning of stomach and intestines; is especially helpful in fighting diarrhoea in small children. It supports the proper heart functions.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus – is used in the industry for the production of yoghurts. One of the basic strains used in the treatment of ulcerative colitis.
Lactobacillus casei – prevents diarrhoea during antibiotic treatment. It is helpful in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease.
Lactobacillus Helvetius – is used in the dairy industry; it shows regulating influence on the digestive system and stimulates the immune system for the fight against pathogens.
Lactobacillus plantarum – reduces the risk of colorectal cancer. It is helpful during antibiotic treatment as well as keeps the balance between good and harmful microorganisms.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus – a bacteria strain which improves mood and reduces anxiety, so that it is used in the treatment of depression symptoms. What is more, it can regulate glycemic management in the body system.
Lactobacillus salivarius – supports the immune system, is helpful in case of intolerance of dairy products and in the maintenance of the proper level of cholesterol in blood.
Lactococcus lactis – improves digestion and is helpful in fighting free radicals in the body system.
Streptococcus thermophilus – counteracts diarrhoea during antibiotic treatment, especially helpful in people during chemotherapy. It can reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.
Bifidobacterium infantis – relieves the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and strengthens the immune system. It improves and accelerates digestion.
Why are probiotics so important for us?
Probiotics nourish and improve the functioning of the intestines, which are responsible for proper digestion, absorption of nutrients from food and stool frequency. Improper diet, rich in processed food, drugs use (especially antibiotics) and alcohol abuse lead to the sterilization of intestinal microflora and excessive amounts of harmful bacteria, which have negative impact on the bacteria microflora of the digestive system.
According to numerous scientific studies, intestinal problems can lead to the number of diseases. People with improper intestinal microflora, with the predominance of pathogenic bacteria, suffered also from such ailments as acne, asthma and ADHD (in children).
Communication between intestines and the brain
The fact that the intestines are able to communicate with the brain has been proven by numerous scientifically studies. The lack of proper bacteria strains in the intestines contributes to mood changes, increased aggression, obsessive-compulsive disorders and depression.
Healthy intestines versus slimming
The disorders of intestinal microflora significantly contribute to the excessive accumulation of adipose tissue. Using preparations rich in probiotics helps to maintain the proper body weight and prevents obesity.
To sum it all up, Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic by Swanson is a revolutionary and highly advanced synbiotic which contains both probiotic and prebiotic bacteria which take care of the proper intestinal balance, contribute to the improvement in digestion, support the immune system and increase the absorption of nutrients from food. It is especially helpful in case of such ailments as irritable bowel syndrome, coeliac disease and ulcerative colitis.
