is an advanced probiotic formula that provides the beneficial flora (friendly bacteria) the body uses to create a healthy bacteria balance in the colon. FloraMORE also provides FOS to sustain good bacteria and includes other support for healthy intestinal lining.
Why are probiotics so important?
- Probiotics reduce the levels of harmful bacteria such as E.Coli and Salmonella by producing metabolic end-products that inhibit or antagonize them. These compounds include hydrogen peroxide, lactic and acetic acids.
- Inhibiting levels of microbial pathogens: L. Acidophilus may inhibit pathogens by lowering the pH in the intestines. The production of organic acids effectively lowers intestinal pH to a level that is beneficial to good bacteria and destructive to pathogens.
- Preventing establishment of harmful fungus and parasites: L. Acidophilus and B. Bifidus aggressively attach themselves to the walls of the colon. In doing so, they may inhibit Candida albicans, bacteria and the parasite Giardia lamblia.
- Lowering levels of toxic by-products: Harmful bacteria can produce toxins, such as indole, skatole, and methane because of their metabolic reaction to certain foods. Reducing their numbers may lower toxin levels in the colon.
- Assist in digestion of lactose: Clinical studies have shown that L. Acidophilus assists the body’s natural process of digestion, particularly lactose and dietary carbohydrates.
- Synthesizing important B vitamins: Probiotics have been found to be beneficial in the synthesis of folic acid, niacin, pantothenic acid, and biotin.
How does FloraMORE give you MORE?
Probiotics like L. Acidophilus and B. Bifidum as well as other beneficial bacteria help to establish a healthy bacterial balance in the colon. FloraMORE is uniquely formulated with L-glutamine (an amino acid) and N-acetyl-D-Glucosamine (an amino sugar). These ingredients are thought to support the replacement of mucosal linings like those found in the digestive tract (where acidophilus lives). FloraMORE also contains F.O.S. (fructooligosaccharides), a carbohydrate that supports growth of beneficial bacteria.
Which Probiotics are best?
Strains that naturally occur in the human digestive tract are called resident strains. Strains that do not naturally occur are called transient. Acidophilus and B. Bifidum are common resident probiotics. Other resident strains are Lactobacillus Salivarius, Bifidobacterium Infantis, and Bifidobacterium Longum. While transient strains may offer some of the same benefits of resident strains, naturally occurring flora are known to work in harmony with each other, and they will stay and grow in the intestines, while transient strains leave with normal evacuation. FloraMORE contains only those strains that naturally occur in the human digestive tract.
- F.O.S. (Fructooligosaccharides) is a complex soluble fiber that acts as a food for probiotics, especially bifidobacteria. In human studies, consumption of F.O.S has been shown to increase levels of bifidobacteria and lower stool pH. These studies suggest an increase in numbers of good bacteria in the colon.
- L-Glutamine is an amino acid. It has been shown to help the body’s natural process of rebuilding the digestive tract. Oral supplementation of L-glutamine is thought to inhibit adherence of candida albicans on digestive surfaces.
- N-Acetyl Glucosamine is an amino acid found in all tissues of the body and in large quantities in healthy digestive membranes. Supplementation with N.A.G. is thought to benefit digestive functions by assisting the natural regeneration of digestive cells.
