Probiotic-3 is a carefully designed formula that combines a blend of three bacterial strains that promote the health of the digestive system. Enterococcus faecium, a bacterial strain that naturally inhabits the human gastrointestinal tract, helps lower the gastrointestinal pH. It also helps block the growth of harmful bacteria by producing lactic acid as a byproduct of carbohydrate fermentation. Clostridium butyricum is a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract and breaks down dietary fiber into several beneficial nutrients, like butyric acid, which is an important source of nourishment for colonocytes (the cells of the lower gastrointestinal tract) and helps support our inflammatory response. Bacillus subtilis also supports the growth of E. faecium and C. butyricum as well as the growth of several strains of the beneficial Bifidobacterium species.
Modern living has separated us from nature, and the hectic lives we lead often prevent us from eating an optimal diet. Even people who are considered to be in good health often lack a healthy microbiome. High-quality probiotics like Probiotic-3 can introduce the right types of microorganisms into our microbiome.
Probiotic-3’s unique formula combines three human strains that has been clinically studied for over 55 years and is regularly used in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia. Each strain was carefully chosen to ensure synergy and safety with the others.
The enterobacteria contained in Probiotic-3 act in symbiosis and supports a healthy intestinal flora. Lactic acid and butyric acid-producing probiotics inhibit the growth of non beneficial bacteria while promoting the growth of the beneficial Bifidobacterium strain.*
