Probiotics and Prebiotics
Probiotics are live microbial food ingredients that have a beneficial effect on human body by improving its gastro-intestinal micro flora balance:
– Support and strengthen our body’s immune system.
– Help suppress putrefactive processes in the intestine and maintain normal gastro-intestinal micro flora.
– Supports peristalsis and intestine good functioning.
– Promote correct digestion and absorption of food nutrients.
– Help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
– Reduce osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis risk.
– Overcome skin problems and allergies.
– Improve nutrition balance by providing necessary amino acids and natural vitamins.
– Prevent constipation, bloating, diarrhea & flatulence.
– Assist weight reduction.
– What are the Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are “food ingredients which stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the gastro-intestinal (GI) system”. Kendy uses inulin (fibers) as a prebiotic which can increase the volume of good bacteria by up to x10.
Our general level of health depends to a large extent upon the condition of the friendly bacteria in our GI system and their ability to control harmful bacteria and help us ingest nutrients from food.
When Probiotics are combined with Fibers they have more powerful and beneficial effect on gastro-intestinal system than standard Probiotics.
What is Inulin and is it in all probiotic products?
No, few Probiotics products contain Inulin. It is a natural Fiber, extracted from chicory roots. It is beneficial for the good bacteria in gastro-intestinal tract. Studies show that inulin can increase the absorption of calcium (an important nutrient especially for women and children) by 18%.
Lactoflor capsules and tablets – advantages
– Optimize immune and digestive system.
– Patented blend including 2 unique strains of Lactobacillicus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus.
– Extremely powerful formula with Fibers added ensuring fast and effective reproduction of “friendly bacteria” in gastro-intestinal system.
Aren’t all Probiotics bacteria the same?
No! Different Lactobacilli strains have different characteristics and very different survival and reproductive capabilities when in the hostile environment of the human gastro-intestinal system.
„Lactobacillus bulgaricus was the lactic acid starter species with the best Probiotic characteristics among the starter species tested”.
