Medicaline Probiotic Medica 4.2 billion + VitC with prebiotic is a dietary supplement, which consists of three strains of probiotic bacteria (altogether as much as 4.2 billion bacteria in one capsule), a natural prebiotic in the form of acacia fiber and the addition of vitamin C. Thanks to such a composition, the supplement comprehensively supports the natural defense mechanisms of the body and facilitates the restoration of the natural intestinal bacterial flora.
The intestine is the longest part of the digestive system. On its several-meter length, there are taking place processes of digestion and absorption of essential nutrients. Decomposition of food occurs not only due to the action of digestive enzymes but also with the help of intestinal bacterial flora. Many of these bacteria release substances that intensify the use of food ingredients. Besides, some strains participate in the production of vitamins (biotin and vitamin K) and also stimulate the synthesis of hormones.
In addition, bacterial strains present in the intestines compete with pathogens and harmful bacteria, inhibiting their development. As a result, the body becomes capable of keeping off dangerous and troublesome infections and inflammations. In addition, bacteria, by digesting harmful pathogens, affect the immunomodulation of the body – they stimulate the host's immune system to fight pathogenic microorganisms.
The preparation contains 3 strains of beneficial bacteria naturally present in the intestines: Lactobacillus planatarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Bifidobacterium animalis in a large dose: as much as 4.2 billion bacteria in one capsule. The use of the supplement after antibiotic therapy will effectively complement deficiencies of the intestinal microflora and allow for a quick return to shape. It is important not to leave the intestines on its own after using antibiotics. Research shows that self-regeneration of the intestinal microflora after the use of antibacterial drugs may take up to 6 months. This is a very long period of time, considering, how positively the intestinal microflora affects the entire body.
Deficiencies in bacterial microflora may result in the formation of opportunistic infections – harmful bacteria, whose development has been so far inhibited by natural flora, multiply uncontrollably, which leads to unpleasant symptoms such as diarrhea, bloating, and even fever. In addition, after sterilization of the intestines, there are deficiencies of vitamins, especially vitamin K and biotin. This may lead to coagulation disorders, hair loss, and nail fragility.
Lactobacillus planatarum is a rod that naturally occurs in the digestive system. It belongs to the lactobacillus genus, whose positive effect on human intestines has been proven in many studies.
Lactobacillus planatarum plays an immunomodulatory role – it reduces the allergic symptoms caused by certain foods by reducing the amount of IgE antibodies.
In normal conditions, IgEs are produced in response to an irritating antigen. They then secrete cytokines that entice lymphocytes and monocytes into place. Subsequently, these cells secrete inflammatory mediators, such as histamine, prostaglandins or leukotrienes, which cause vasodilatation, irritability, and other unpleasant symptoms of allergy. The inhibition of this process at one of the initial stages by these bacteria confirms their unique probiotic abilities.
Additionally, the unique feature of Lactobacillus planatarum is the ability to metabolize arginine to form nitric oxide, which inhibits the growth of other harmful bacteria. This bacterium also regulates the blood supply and intestinal peristalsis and affects the secretion of saliva.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is a Gram-positive bacterium colonizing the human intestine. It has the ability to shorten the duration of diarrhea, caused both by viruses and those caused by antibiotic therapy. Thanks to this, it increases the comfort of convalescence. This bacterium is also important in the prevention of cancer due to its ability to reduce the activity of enzymes – β-glucuronidase, hydrolase, and nitroreductase. In addition, it acts immunomodulatory and restores the balance between Th1 and Th2 lymphocytes.
Bifidobacterium animalis is a rod-shaped bacterium that acts mainly to reduce unpleasant intestinal symptoms such as bloating, constipation or diarrhea. The beneficial effects of this bacterium were detected by examining people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. In addition, it has been proven that the presence of Bifidobacterium animalis has a positive effect on the eradication of H. pylori, which causes stomach ulcers.
Acacia fiber is a natural prebiotic. This means that it stimulates the growth of the physiological microflora of the intestines and thus has a pro-health effect. The prebiotic is a non-digestible component of the diet that contains one or more elements nourishing the bacteria, thereby stimulating their growth. By adding it to a supplement containing bacterial strains, the effect of the preparation is increased and prolonged.
Vitamin C is a systemically acting compound belonging to the group of polyhydric alcohols. Provided with food, it improves immunity, supports the functioning of the cardiovascular system, and participates in protein transformation processes. In addition, it effectively protects cells from oxidative stress by scavenging free radicals.
In summary, Medicaline Probiotic Medica 4.2 billion + VitC with prebiotic is an excellent choice for people who want to provide support in the restoration of bacterial microflora. In addition, the preparation can be useful for people traveling to exotic countries as a support for maintaining the natural intestinal bacterial flora while changing the nutritional plan.
This product may be useful not only after antibiotic therapy or after burdensome intestinal disorders (such as diarrhea or constipation), but it can also be a part of first aid kit for people traveling to exotic countries. The diet in other parts of the world may greatly differ from ours, so it is important to ensure a good condition of the bowel. It is also a good idea to preventively use probiotics from time to time – to improve the absorption of nutrients and ensure better intestinal peristalsis.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.
It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.
Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.
What is Lactobacillus rhamnosus?
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is a kind of milk fermentation bacteria capable of synthesising the enzyme which breaks down lactose. Owing to that, it reduces the discomfort after consuming dairy products. Furthermore, it populates the intestinal mucosa and competes with pathogenic bacteria, thereby helping restore the normal intestinal microflora. The proper condition of intestines ensures efficient food digestion and proper immunity against pathogenic microorganisms but also contributes to reducing inflammations and allergies in the body.
This bacteria strain is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
