OptiBac Probiotics For daily wellbeing
Daily probiotic support means normalising a healthy balance of friendly bacteria throughout the entire intestinal tract. With OptiBac Probiotics, the different strains (or types) of friendly bacteria along with the prebiotics have been specifically chosen for the different clinically proven health benefits they convey in the different parts of the small and large (colon) intestine.
OptiBac Probiotics For daily wellbeing provides a high potency and select variety of well researched and documented probiotic strains. In addition For daily wellbeing is free from sugars, fats, preservatives or colourings that may be found in some daily probiotic foods and drinks.
Lactobacilli Strains: Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 and Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 are among the most well researched and documented species of friendly bacteria naturally resident in the human gut. These strains have been well studied to survive the gastric acids and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage where they colonise well, support immune cells and create a healthy lactic acid environment that limits survival of harmful bacteria (e.g. Streptococus aureus, Enterobacter cloacae, Listeria monocytogenes).
Bifidobacteria Strains: Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, Bifidobacterium breve Rosell-70 and Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71 colonise primarily in the large intestine (or colon). In this region they promote the production of antibodies, support the body against toxins and inhibit the development of undesirable bacteria by competitively excluding their attachment to the intestinal wall lining. In addition, a healthy balance of bifidobacteria supports the intestines in assisting transit and optimizing a healthy frequency and regularity of bowel movements.
Lactococcus lactis Rosell-1058: This strain is obtained from the kefir culture and is renowned for the antimicrobial benefits in supporting the body against undesirable harmful bacteria and some fungi.
Prebiotics: The non-digestible FOS (fructooligosaccharides) safely make their way to the large intestine (colon) where they act as a food source to stimulate growth of the bifidobacteria. The symbiotic relationship between bifidobacteria and prebiotics in the colon has a great impact on supporting intestinal health and wellbeing.
