The prebiotics in this supplement are not in appreciable levels to have a prebiotic effect in the human body. The prebiotic is present to supply a food source for the live friendly native bacteria when they are rehydrated. It does not act as a food source for pathogens.
Live Native Bacteria
This healthy bacterial balance in our intestine can easily be disturbed, most commonly due to illness, age, poor diet and antibiotic treatment. In such cases the bad bacteria will start to ‘colonise’ more rapidly than the good bacteria can replenish causing dysbiosis and pain, bloating, discomfort and even diarrhoea. It can be difficult to restore the good balance at such times.
A wealth of relevant peer reviewed research information is available online from scientific and medical institutions worldwide that offers interpretations on the efficacy of live native bacterial strain supplements. There is also a body of research available from our own suppliers on the efficacy and specific activities of the strains in our products.
This product description has been changed in accordance with recent legislation in respect of live native bacterial products formerly termed ‘probiotics’.
