What are probiotics?
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that promote good health. You may be familiar with the term“probiotics” from the dairy aisle of your grocery store, since probiotics are found in many yogurts. The word probiotic is derived from the Greek pro bios and literally means“pro-life”. In sufficient quantities, these healthy live bacteria help boost the immune system and protect the digestive system. (Some yogurts contain more probiotics than others, and label claims aren’t always accurate.) Taking a supplement like Multibionta is a smart way to ensure you’re actually getting the probiotics your body needs.
Why does the body need probiotics?
Probiotics play an important role in the health of our digestive system. They also promote the natural balance of the gut flora and, in this way, boost our immune system.
Which probiotics are found in Multibionta?
The following probiotic strains are found in Multibionta:
- Lactobacillus gasseri PA16/8,
- Bifidobacterium bifidum MF20/5
- Bifidobacterium longum SP07/3
These bacteria are important constituents of a healthy gut flora, and the combination of three different probiotic strains ensures protection along the entire length of the gut. Lactobacillus gasseri is active in the upper part of the gut, while the Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum exist mainly in the lower part of the gut.
During their passage through the digestive tract, it is vital that probiotic bacteria withstand harsh stomach acid, because this is the only way adequate numbers can survive to reach the gut to exert their positive effect. Multibionta caplets have a unique enteric coating which enables the three types of probiotic cultures to successfully survive the passage through the strong acids in the stomach and reach the gut.
What do Probiotics do?
The human body uses the immune system to defend against harmful types of bacteria and infections. Probiotics form a line of defence against the harmful bacteria that inhabits our bodies. By doing this, probiotics help to support our immune and digestive systems.
