Aliness IBS Balance 10 bln. is a highly specialized preparation that belongs to the group of synbiotics, i.e. the supplements containing probiotic strains along with prebiotics with the effect of regulating the growth of the proper flora, whose normal composition is particularly important in case of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
The product contains as many as 10 billion bacterial cells, which, thanks to the microencapsulation technology, that is, the placement of probiotic microorganisms in the structure resembling cell membranes, are characterized by 100% survivability in difficult conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, placement of the capsules in a violet glass bottle protects the sensitive carrier substances against oxidation and decomposition processes.
The product consists of:
Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breve – bacterial strains that are the first to colonize the digestive system of newborns. Thanks to the production of organic acids, they reduce the pH of the gastrointestinal tract, which induces unfavorable conditions for the existence of C. difficile, H. pylori, E. coli and Candida pathogens. Moreover, thanks to the use of a special formula, BIFIFOS W11™, Bifidobacterium longum has been immunized against one of the popular antibiotics – rifaximin.
Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus acidophilus – lactic acid bacteria colonizing the digestive tract, as well as the genital tract of women. The studies proved their participation in the process of fat digestion through metabolic modifications of fatty acids. In addition, they normalize the function of the neuronal axis HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) and also modulate the central action of GABA receptors, which is associated with a reduction in the feeling of tension and stress.
The importance of bacterial flora
When stripping off the human body into single components, we realize that it is made up of many cells that, by grouping together, form tissues, and then systems with specific functions. It is worth emphasizing, however, that human cells are not the only ones constituting the unity of the system. We tend to forget about the symbiotic organisms living on the skin and mucous membranes – bacteria or fungi. Their role in maintaining homeostasis is invaluable – e.g. they regulate immune functions, inactivate toxins, seal the intestinal mucosal barrier, and they are a source of vitamin K. Therefore, one should not underestimate the symptoms that may denote the impoverishment of the systemic flora.
The beneficial effect of probiotics on IBS symptoms
Almost everyone experienced unpleasant gastric complaints in the form of abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. These afflictions often exclude from normal functioning, not allowing for doing everyday routine activities. One of the clinical conditions, characterized by an increased amount and changed consistency of bowel movements along with abdominal pain for a period of several months is irritable bowel syndrome.
Not many people know that this is associated with visceral innervation of abdomen organs. There are as many nerve cells throughout the digestive tract as in the spinal cord itself! This fact emphasizes the importance of caring for the good condition of the digestive system.
The most common reason for the occurrence of such conditions is an incorrect diet, which has a huge impact on the imbalance between pathogenic microorganisms and probiotic bacteria that colonize the colon. The production of toxins causes damage to the epithelium and irritation of the nerve endings, which manifests itself in the aforementioned ailments.
It is possible to prevent such afflictions through a regular supplementation of symbiotes. Colonizing large intestine, they are not idle because they primarily inhibit the production of proinflammatory cytokines, whose high concentration results in the development of inflammation, responsible, among others, for feeling pain. In addition, they stimulate the immune processes of the host (they increase the production of IgA antibodies), but above all, they coordinate the functions of the cerebral-gut axis, affecting the daily behavior and mood.
Comprehensive health-promoting effect
Currently, many older people are struggling with metabolic ailments that also have a detrimental effect on the cardiovascular system. They include obesity or type II diabetes, predisposing to hypertension. It turns out that these problems may be related to the colonization of the digestive tract by the bad flora.
In clinical trials, it was shown that probiotic supplementation significantly improved the insulin sensitivity of tissues, thanks to which the level of glucose in blood was reduced. This was accompanied by a decrease in the concentration of the inflammatory marker – CRP, as well as improved lipid profile parameters in the scope of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol.
Addition to promote the growth of symbiotes
Bacterial cells, similarly to cells in the human system, need energetic or regulatory substances for proper growth and development. Compounds that promote the growth of symbiotic strains, and inhibit the multiplication of pathogens, are referred to as prebiotics.
The formula applied, Fibregum™ Bio LAW, has low water activity, which allows optimal activation of the enzymes needed to carry out the life processes of bacteria, protecting them against self-liquidation. In contrast to the commonly used inulin, the polysaccharides used in the preparation are fermented more slowly, causing no bloating and intestinal gases.
In summary, Aliness IBS Balance 10 bln. is a preparation containing an optimal number of probiotic strains that comprehensively support the proper functioning of the digestive system. In addition to reducing the risk of unpleasant digestive ailments, probiotic strains also promote immunomodulation and have a significant effect on the metabolic function of the body.
The preparation is intended mainly for people who have symptoms that may suggest irritable bowel syndrome. It can be used both to regress symptoms (abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea) and to restore the comfort of life.
The product may also be beneficial for those who may have experienced sterilization of the gastrointestinal tract as a result of antibiotic therapy or after prolonged periods of improper diet.

Plantain (Plantago lanceolata), a plant of temperate climate in the northern hemisphere, common in Poland. Its raw medical materials are the leaves of plantain (Folium Plantaginis}, including: enzymes (invert sugar, emulsin), flavonoids, tannins, iridoid glycosides, pectin, minerals (soluble silica, zinc), saponin triterpenes, mucus and vitamins (C, K) . It has a wide medicinal use because it has a protecting and coating effect, it is expectorant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, diuretic, stimulates gastric juices, antidiarrhoeal, in addition applied externally it accelerates wound healing (e.g. by applying a fresh plantain leaves directly on the wound) and regeneration of the epidermis, used also in conjunctivitis inflammation.
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.
It is used in medicine in treating disorders of gastrointestinal disorders, such as nausea, constipation and diarrhoea. Due to the presence of this health-promoting strain in breast milk, the supplementation is recommended for gaining the best advantages to child development and health.
This bacteria strain is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas 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 Bifidobacterium breve?
Bifidobacterium breve is a bacterium naturally residing in the large intestine whose presence and functions have a positive effect on digestion, nutrient absorption and the overall human health. It belongs to nonspore-forming gram-positive bacteria. It is extremely resistant to gastric juices present in different parts of the digestive tract and reach the adhesion site in an adequate amount. It has been demonstrated to have a particular affinity to HT-29 cell line in the intestines.
By producing organic acids and lactic acid, it reduces the alkalinity of the intestines, hereby inducing adverse effects for the development of such pathogens as Clostridium difficile, Helicobacter pylori, E.coli and Candida. Owing to that, it reduces digestive ailments associated with bacterial infection and caused by antibiotherapy. In addition, it has a positive impact in the treatment of candidiasis.
The strains of the genus Bifidobacterium have been detected in breast milk. Owing to that, after passing through the infant’s digestive tract, it shows many benefits to its healthy development. It has an indirect impact on individuals with depression, boosts focus and concentration.
Bifidobacterium breve is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
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
