The Importance of Human Strains
The strain selection in Acidophilus 120 Billion reflects probiotic species that deliver maximum benefits to the host organism: you. With this in mind, a probiotic does not have to be of human origin to be beneficial; however, probiotic species of human origin exhibit the capacity to survive intestinal transit. This characteristic allows them to colonize and exert their benefits at multiple sites within the entire gastrointestinal tract. Acidophilus 120 Billion includes the strength and diversity of 120 billion live probiotic cells stemming from 12 scientifically proven human probiotic strains.
Robust, Resilient Rhamnosus
Acidophilus 120 Billion contains four specific beneficial strains belonging to the therapeutic species Lactobacillus rhamnosus: R0033, R0070, HA111, and HA114.
First isolated in 1983 from the intestines of a healthy human subject, the rhamnosus species of the Lactobacillus genus is among the most-researched of all probiotics. Their tolerance for highly destructive acidic conditions within the stomach and intestines allow rhamnosus strains to populate the intestines in extensive amounts for noticeable therapeutic benefits. Acidophilus 120 Billion contains more than 26 billion colony-forming units sourced from this beneficial species.
These strains colonize within the mucous membranes of the intestines to exert their health benefits, which include:
· Increased lactic acid production to actively suppress growth of harmful bacteria that cause infection and disease.
· Reduced frequency of diarrhea and urinary tract infections. A study conducted in North Bengal, India, involving 235 infant patients exhibited duration of diarrhea to be 5.3 days for those treated with low-dose Lactobacillus rhamnosus versus 9.2 days for controls.
· Strengthened gut-barrier function for relief from autoimmune conditions including arthritis and allergies.
· Stimulation of antibodies integral for phagocytosis (destruction of invasive bacteria by ingestion).
Acidophilus 120 Billion additionally populates the entire gastrointestinal tract with the following 16 habitat-specific beneficial strains:
Has the ability to embed within the intestinal mucosa and to colonize the intestinal tract, protecting it from the harmful activities of bad microorganisms. It also protects the body from bacteria and viruses, and helps the healing of vaginal infections. It decreases the production of toxins by controlling putrefactive microbes in your body.
Used to reduce lactose intolerance and diarrhea, control unwanted microorganisms and intestinal bacteria, and limit the proliferation of Candida albicans.
This potent probiotic is the driving force behind the benefits of functional foods worldwide, including kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi. It’s critical for the maintenance of healthy intestinal lining (mucosa), and to inhibit pathogenic bacteria and opportunistic yeast overgrowth. It also exhibits resistance to broad-spectrum antibiotics.
L. casei (R0215 and HA108)
Used to treat intestinal infections; it acts by improving your immunity against bacterial and viral infections.
It suppresses the growth of pathogenic (harmful) bacteria and fights flatulence.
It ranks among the common inhabitants of the mucosal lining of healthy individuals, contributing to favourable intestinal acidity for great health.
This potent probiotic fights infections and strengthens the immune system. It also produces the compound reuterin, which has been found to inhibit the growth of E. coli.
Probiotic Pioneers: Bifido bifidum, longum, infantis, and breve
These reside in the mucosal lining of the distal part of the small intestin (ileum) and are the predominant strains to colonize the colon to support intestinal health, cleanliness, and functionality. Four of the most predominant strains of the Bifidobacterium probiotic family—Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium infantis, and Bifidobacterium breve—lower serum cholesterol and dissolve bile salts. They also help in maintaining a normal and balanced intestinal flora, particularly among children and the elderly. They are instrumental for establishing a strong immune system.
The Bifidobacterium probiotic family performs several important functions in the intestinal tract, including the production of lactic and acetic acids, which increase the acidity of the intestines. They help in the controlling and limiting of coliforms and Clostridia. They also improve people’s tolerance to lactose. They lower intestinal pH from 7–8 to 5–6 and prevent toxic amines. A healthy intestinal tract relies on sufficient quantities of these health-promoting friendly probiotics.
L. delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus
Improves immunity, digestion, and lactose tolerance; reduces cholesterol; and helps in controlling intestinal infections.
Streptococcus salivarius ssp. thermophilus
Even though S. salivarius ssp. thermophilus does not colonize in the intestine, its enzyme (lactase) transforms lactose into lactic acid, which in turn helps control harmful bacteria. It can also produce natural antibiotic-like substances and reduces lactose intolerance.
Fuel for Probiotic Dominance: Fructooligosaccharides (F.O.S.)
Increases the Bifidobacterium probiotics population in the colon, which in turn contributes to human health in many ways. Vitazan Professional’s F.O.S. are of the highest-quality 100% inulin, extracted from chicory root.
F.O.S. help to:
· Proliferate Bifidobacterium probiotics and reduce detrimental bacteria.
· Reduce toxic metabolites and detrimental enzymes.
· Prevent pathogenic and autogenous diarrhea.
· Prevent constipation.
· Protect liver function.
· Produce nutrients.
It is a prebiotic: it selectively stimulates the growth and activity of probiotic bacteria. The maintenance of a healthy microbial balance is critical to immune function, as 80% of immune-system function originates within the intestines.
Strength and Diversity
Vitazan Professional’s Acidophilus 120 Billion occupies a rare niche in the high-dose probiotic category, in that it delivers the diverse, synergistic benefits of 20 therapeutic strains, with a population of 120 billion CFUs. The twenty beneficial species in Acidophilus 120 Billion include 12 human, 6 dairy, and 2 plant-sourced strains, which deliver broad therapeutic benefits throughout the entire gut. Our unique formula restores a healthy, balanced microflora, critical for nutrient assimilation and vitamin synthesis. Acidophilus 120 Billion floods the entire intestinal tract, where its multiple therapeutic strains embed within the mucosal lining to soothe the intestines and enhance immune performance. This can be invaluable in the recovery process for people exposed to multiple rounds of antibiotic treatment.
The delivery method for Acidophilus 120 Billion is our non‑GMO, plant-sourced capsule, protected with our natural water-based PH5D enteric coating. This ensures the entire contents are protected from harsh stomach acids to arrive alive within the intestines for maximum therapeutic results.
Research has also shown a correlation between age-related deterioration of the immune system and a less-varied intestinal microbial community; this reinforces the importance of maintaining a dominant, diverse probiotic population for people of all ages.
