- Promotes healthy microflora colonization for a balanced intestinal and vaginal ecosystem - Supports healthy bowel function and may reduce symptoms of irritable bowel - Reduces prevalence of traveler’s diarrhea - Helps support immune system natural defense mechanisms - May be used during, or following, antibiotics to combat diarrhea resulting from antibiotic use - MAKTrek™ technology allows up to 50 times more probiotics to colonize the small intestine
PRO FLORA INTENSIVE provides 112.5 billion probiotic microbes per dose. Multiple studies have demonstrated that the dosage of probiotics has a significant effect on efficacy. When Pro Flora Intensive is consumed once or twice daily, it provides a level of probiotics shown to modify the balance of gut microflora, reduce post-antibiotic diarrhea, reduce episodes of dysbiosis, promote a healthy immune response, reduce increased intestinal permeability and modulate intestinal symptoms such as flatulence, bloating, and abnormal bowel movements.
The symbiotic relationship that humans have with bacteria is particularly important in the functioning of the intestinal tract and its gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). Due to heightened hygiene, over-use of antibiotics, the use of antimicrobial soaps and cleaners, sterile foods, and processed foods which contain antimicrobial preservatives, the western human diet contains several thousand less species of bacteria than pre-industrialized diets. The resulting changes in the balance of healthy gut flora have emerged as a leading mechanism for the increased prevalence of gastrointestinal dysfunction and immune and inflammatory dysregulation.
LACTOBACILLUS ACIDOPHILUS, LACTOBACILLUS RHAMNOSUS, LACTOBACILLUS PLANTARUM: Studies have shown different strains of probiotics support protective barriers, alter intestinal pH, enhance immune responses and compete with pathogenic bacteria. Research in human clinical trials have shown that strains of Saccharomyces boulardii, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, and Lactobacillus acidophilus provide dietary support for a reduction in diarrhea associated with antibiotic use. L. acidophilus has been shown to produce antimicrobial substances such as acidophilin, bacteriocin, acidolin and lactocidin which can help shift microbial populations from a dysbiotic state to healthier intestinal balance. L. plantarum has been shown to decrease the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including TNF-α.
SACCHAROMYCES BOULARDII (lyophilized) has a long history of supporting intestinal mucosal recovery. It appears to exert its therapeutic effect through multiple mechanisms including interference with pathogenic bacterial adhesion, production of antagonistic “mycocins,” enhancement of mucosal immune response, strengthening of enterocyte tight junctions, neutralization of bacterial virulence factors and modulating inflammatory signaling pathways. In a recent study, prophylactic S. boulardii supplementation has been shown to be effective in reducing fungal colonization in preterm infants with a resultant favorable effect on reducing feeding intolerance.
BIFIDOBACTERIUM BREVE, BIFIDOBACTERIUM LONGUM, BIFIDOBACTERIUM INFANTIS: Research has shown that dysfunction within the intestinal tract such as antibiotic-associated diarrhea, excessive gas, and irritable bowel have been linked to a patient's shortage of the Bifidobacterium breve bacteria. The presence of B. breve appears to inhibit E. coli. B. breve is also present in the vagina, where it helps inhibit overpopulation of Candida albicans. B. breve ferments sugars in the digestive tract and produces lactic and acetic acid.
Bifidobacterium longum have been studied in many patients including elderly patients receiving enteral feeding. Two double-blind, placebo-controlled trials with B. longum showed that this bacteria has a modulatory effect on bowel movements and increases the prevalence of normally formed stools. A study looking at the influence of B. longum on tight-junction function of human primary keratinocytes showed that it was one of the most efficacious bacteria at increasing tight-junction function, an important consideration for modulating altered intestinal permeability issues such as “leaky gut.” This helps reduce the risk of pathogenic bacteria invading tight junctions between epithelial cells and disturbing the barrier function of the gut leading to immune dysregulation. MAKTREK BYPASS TECHNOLOGY is an innovative polysaccharide complex which acts as a protective barrier to ensure delivery of viable probiotics to the small intestine. Most probiotic capsules begin to break down upon entering the acidic environment of the stomach, thus exposing their contents to destructive gastric acids. As the Pro Flora Intensive capsule begins degradation by the stomach’s acids, fluid enters the capsule and binds to the MAKTrek polysaccharide mixture, forming a complex which acts as a secondary protective coating. This coating protects the probiotic bacteria and results in a significant increase in intestinal implantation of probiotic microorganisms for optimal health-supporting benefits.
