VitaBio Pro is a practitioner-strength, multi-strain probiotic supplement with 20 billion friendly bacteria per capsule - equivalent to 40 pots of probiotic yoghurt, but without the added sugar, dairy and fat.
It provides 8 strains of friendly lactic bacteria which should inhabit a healthy gut, and offers full-spectrum support of the upper and lower bowel.
Micro-encapsulated for acid resistance, this probiotic contains human compatible friendly bacteria strains which are bile and acid tolerant with high adherence ability - no need to refrigerate and guaranteed to provide 20 billion live bacteria per capsule for up to 12 months.
It has been specifically formulated for natural health practitioners who treat digestive and intestinal disorders. It is ideal for use following antibiotics, travelling abroad and colonic hydrotherapy treatment.
Probiotic supplements are useful when the balance of good and bad bacteria in the bowel has been disrupted. Such an imbalance almost always occurs in the following situations:
- after use of antibiotics
- following illness
- during and after periods of heightened stress
- as we get older (and our digestive enzymes decrease in number)
- following travel to a foreign country
- for people who experience regular tummy upsets
- for people who regularly have an urgent need to use the toilet
- for people who have poor digestion.
An imbalance of bowel flora can lead to a number of unpleasant symptoms, such as a bloated stomach, abdominal pains, irregular bowel movements and a feeling of heaviness after eating. Probiotics are recommended for people who wish to ensure or maintain a favourable amount of the friendly bacteria in their digestive tract.
Why is this multi-strain formula more effective than a single strain product?
A single species probiotic is simply unlikely to deliver as many benefits as a multi-strain probiotic, which colonises and acts upon multiple locations within the body. There are literally hundreds of different species of good bacteria in our digestive system, so a multi-strain formula will work in more areas and also provide better protection against a wider scope of harmful micro-organisms.
