Supports intestinal health:
- Provides 20 billion CFU per day from two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis
- Provides 1600 mg of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) per day
Probiotics reinforce the epithelial barrier and mediate intestinal permeability by controlling the integrity of tight junctions. They promote the presence of beneficial bacteria to support normal intestinal function. In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 155 adults, daily intake of a probiotic supplement providing 25 billion CFU (containing two strains each of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium) for 21 days significantly and positively affected the intestinal microbiota. FOS are non-digestible food ingredients that support the growth and activity of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli in the human colon.
