Beneficial bacteria can be depleted by low-fiber diets, high meat diets, antibiotic use, travel and stress. Jarrow Formulas' Prebiotics XOS+GOS primarily supports the growth of Bifidobacteria but also Lactobacilli for intestinal and immune function.* PreticX™ (Xylooligosaccharides) has been shown in clinical studies to promote the growth of Bifidobacteria.* GOS (Galactooligosaccharides) are the principal type of prebiotics found in human milk.
Inulin and FructoOligoSaccharides (FOS) are soluble prebiotic fibers that promote gut and overall health through their fermentation by gut flora to yield important metabolites, including lactic acid and the short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate and butyrate. These metabolites help to maintain proper pH in the gut, discourage the growth of unfriendly bacteria and increase the solubility of dietary calcium.* Moreover, acetate, propionate and butyrate promote the integrity of the intestinal cells lining the colon and may promote healthy lipid metabolism.*
Orafti®Synergy1 delivers both long-chain and short-chain saccharides to the gut, optimizing the growth of beneficial bacteria.*
Jarro-Dophilus EPS® is a Stable-Dophilus® probiotic due to its shelf life stability at room temperature and its enteric coating delivery system, which protects the beneficial probiotic strains while in transit through the stomach’s acidic environment.* The delivery system ensures that a maximum number of viable cells are delivered into the intestinal tract, where they can fully exert their beneficial effects.* The strains in Jarro-Dophilus EPS® are selected from the following 4 genera:
Lactococcus and Pediococcus.
Probiotic strains such as B. longum BB536, L. rhamnosus R0011 and L. helveticus R0052 are well characterized and have been shown to have the ability to interact, via multiple mechanisms of action, with the intestinal tract and the microbial ecosystem within it.* These strains have been clinically shown to have a positive influence on the composition of the intestinal microflora, promote intestinal health and support immune response.*
EnteroGuard® ensures the maximum survival of probiotic bacteria to the small intestines, and hence enhances their effectiveness.
