Probiotic Plus provides 750 million viable bacteria per capsule including 7 different bacteria strains, to support a healthy gut environment. These bacteria strains are combined with plant enzymes including beta-galactosidase which helps to break down lactose (milk sugar), and amylase and cellulose which help with the digestion of complex carbohydrates and starches.
Which Strains Are Included? - The formula contains Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum, bacteria found naturally in the human intestine. They are complimented by 5 additional bacterial strains - L. rhamnosus, B. longum, B. infantis, B. adolescentis, L. plantarum.
Do The Strains Work Together? – The strains included in Probiotic Plus are thought to grow together synergistically and provide an excellent blend for an optimal bacterial micro-environment in the large intestine. Those who have challenges digesting dairy may find the addition of beta-galactosidase enzyme contained helpful. It is a plant digestive enzyme, which helps break down lactose (milk sugar) into glucose and galactose. Those with lactose intolerance do not have enough beta-galactosidase.
Number of Bacteria at Date of Consumption? – Many brands may give the strength of their live bacteria supplement at the time of manufacturing, but what counts is that the strains are still alive and viable all the way till the end of the expiry date! Probiotic Plus is guaranteed to deliver a minimum of 750 million live bacteria right up until the expiry date if it kept in the fridge.
Can the Bacteria Survive Stomach Acidity? – Some strains of live bacteria cannot survive the stomach acid and are killed off before being able to provide any benefit. Nutri have chosen only the strongest strains that have been rigorously tested, and shown to survive the digestive process – including stomach acidity.
Probiotic Plus is suitable for those with no functional gut issues. Those with any gut health issues would, in most instances benefit greatly from higher dose formulas.
The capsule does contain gelatin, but if the capsule is removed is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
