Probiotics are "friendly" bacteria that help support proper functioning of the gastrointestinal system. Hundreds of different strains of microorganisms, both beneficial and pathogenic, populate or pass through the intestinal tract. In a healthy digestive system, these bacteria are able to coexist in a balanced state. Research has shown that different strains of probiotics have the ability to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria through "crowding out" and pH-lowering activity. They can help boost immunity by stimulating natural antibiotic, antimicrobial, and antiviral mechanisms. They can strengthen mucosal membranes, regulate intestinal motility, and normalize bowel function.
Probiotics can also assist in managing allergic inflammation, reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance, and aid mineral assimilation and metabolism (particularly calcium, magnesium, and zinc). Certain strains can improve digestion and stimulate the production of digestive enzymes and B vitamins. And an emerging hypothesis suggests that probiotics can play an important, complementary role in detoxification protocols.
Acid Stable Technology. Significant numbers of probiotic bacteria can be destroyed by gastric acid and digestive enzymes during their passage through the stomach. To help protect fragile bacteria, all Ther-Biotic™ probiotics contain InTactic™, an innovative acid-stable technology. InTactic™, a highly purified polysaccharide material of marine plant origin, forms a gel-like matrix that surrounds and protects the probiotic bacteria from destruction by gastric acid. This allows the friendly flora to survive the stomach acids and be delivered alive into the small intestines where they are released intact to exert their health promoting function. As a result, high functional potencies of live friendly flora are delivered where they are needed.
