OptiBac Probiotics For a flat stomach
Abdominal bloating is usually associated with over-eating, food intolerances, constipation, intestinal gas, PMS (or PMT) and menstruation when the abdomen feels uncomfortable, full and tight. When digestion is poor, waste materials and gases can remain in the gut for long periods of time – often at high temperatures and pressures – and stretch the gut walls beyond their comfortable limits.
Imbalances of bad bacteria over friendly bacteria in the intestines can result in poor digestive health, production of smelly and uncomfortable gases and sluggish bowel function. A one-week course of this OptiBac Probiotics formula re-balances the good bacteria in the small and large intestines to support healthy digestion and good intestinal passage for a comfortably flat stomach
Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71: naturally resident in the colonic (large intestine) microflora, B. bifidum supports the production of antibodies, promotes detoxification and maintains resistance to undesirable pathogenic and putrefactive bacteria. In the colon, B. bifidum flourishes well with fructooligosaccharides (prebiotics) where it supports the intestines to assist transit, promote comfort and optimise a healthy frequency and regularity of bowel movements.
Prebiotics: The non-digestible FOS (fructooligosaccharides) safely make their way to the large intestine (colon) where they act as a food source to stimulate abundant growth of bifidobacteria. The symbiotic relationship between bifidobacteria and prebiotics in the colon has a great impact on supporting intestinal health and wellbeing.
Lactobacillus casei Rosell-215: an extensively studied species naturally resident to the intestinal flora; this strain has been researched in its ability to resist gastric acidity and bile salts in the harsh stomach environment in order to reach the small and large intestines alive where it exerts its probiotic benefits. L. casei has been shown to modulate the composition and growth of bifidobacteria in the colon and to support regularity.
Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52: a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain has been well studied to survive the gastric acids and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage. In addition, L. acidophilus can adhere to the cell wall lining of the intestines where it exerts it beneficial effects in terms of inhibiting intestinal pathogens and supporting immune cells.
Lactococcus lactis Rosell-1058: This strain is obtained from the kefir culture and is renowned for antimicrobial benefits in supporting the body against undesirable harmful bacteria and some fungi.
