Probiotics different in nature.
Differences, which determine the efficacy of a probiotic.
Restoration of intestinal microflora
They effectively restore intestinal microflora. It is recommended to use probiotics for prevention and treatment of dysbiosis, including during and after administration of antibiotics and other medicinal products that damage the microflora.
Normalization of the digestive processes
It normalizes the processes of digestion, removes heaviness, pain and swelling in the abdomen, bowel disorders. It inhibits the development of pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms in the intestine and mucous membranes. Improves bowel motility.
A healthy metabolism
They normalize metabolism and provide adequate digestion of the food. They normalize functioning of the intestine and stomach, ensure full uptake of nutrients, vitamins and minerals obtained from food.
They strengthen the immune system
They stimulate the production of endogenous interferon – an element that prevents the growth of viruses. It strengthens the immune system during seasonal exacerbations of colds, epidemics, during spring vitamin deficiency, in case of weakening of immunity, increased physical and emotional stress, distress, when communicating with sick people.
They normalize the balance of microflora of the skin and mucous membranes. It improves the appearance of the skin, fights against skin rash.
Choosing an effective probiotic, please pay attention to the composition of the product. The composition should include certain types of probiotic bacteria that have beneficial properties. According to the recent data, the greater the bacterial composition, the greater the benefits of a probiotic.
In addition, attention should be paid to the concentration of beneficial bacteria (CFU). A dose containing bacteria starting from 1 billion (1 x 109) CFU can be considered effective, provided that the dose is delivered to the intestine.
A common problem of most probiotics is the acidic environment of the stomach. Gastric acid dissolves the capsule in a matter of minutes, and a significant portion of the bacteria is damaged or dies affected by acid. This is one of the body protective barriers, thanks to which we can sometimes eat an unwashed fruit and do not catch an intestinal infection that is particularly useful. But the same fact makes most probiotics ineffective.
The probiotic VIVOCAPS uses a special enteric capsule resistant to gastric acid. This capsule delivers bacteria intact to the intestine where the capsule dissolves and releases bacteria. It is in the intestine where the probiotic bacteria exert their effects on human health.
Storage of probiotics is equally important. In most cases, manufacturers declare dry storage (not in a refrigerator) for 12 – 24 months. However, such storage inevitably results in reduced activity of bacteria, and as a consequence – reduced efficacy of the probiotic. The probiotic VIVOCAPS has a shelf life of one year if stored in the refrigerator. Only a temporary deviation of the storage temperature is allowed during transportation (up to 30 days).
