Product Details

Details

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a finely balanced environment where 300 different strains of bacteria compete for space and nutrients. When there is a healthy balance (eubiosis), few symptoms exist. However, dysbiosis can occur when an overabundance of potentially harmful organisms prevail. Probiotics have been extensively studied for their effect on the GI environment, and are characterized as having broad health benefits including increasing populations of healthy bacteria following microflora imbalance and increasing detoxification of harmful compounds.

Because probiotics are live organisms, there are many challenges associated with manufacturing and distributing probiotic supplements. For a probiotic to be effective, it must be shelf-stable through the expiration date and precisely delivered to the GI tract where it can have maximum benefit. BioShield Technology is an innovative manufacturing process that ensures consistent, reliable results. The microorganisms in Ortho Biotic are first protected, sealed, and freeze dried away from moisture, heat, light and oxygen. This puts the bacteria into a state of hibernation, allowing them to remain dormant until they are exposed to moisture in the GI tract. By utilizing advanced encapsulation technology, the probiotic organisms are preserved and then released on target for maximum benefit.

Ortho Biotic is a unique probiotic formula designed to deliver active organisms that have been shown to promote healthy gut flora, protect intestinal integrity and boost immune function. Each capsule includes seven proven probiotic strains chosen for their ability to withstand the harsh GI environment and adhere to the intestinal tract. Also included is Saccharomyces boulardii, an extensively researched microorganism shown to help restore microflora balance by enhancing resident probiotics. 

No RefrigerationNeeded! Take it with you throughout the day! Ortho Biotic has been scientifically formulated for room temperature storage.

Ingredient Benefits

Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14)

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a beneficial bacterial strain that is normally found in the intestinal tract and mouth and is commercially used in dairy products for the production of acidophilus-type yogurt. L. acidophilus ferments various carbohydrates to produce lactic acid, which increases the absorption and bioavailability of minerals. This includes calcium, copper, magnesium and manganese. The production of lactic acid also promotes health by creating an inhospitable environment for invading microbes. L. acidophilus has been shown to protect intestinal cells by competing for adhesion space in the gut against harmful bacteria, such as E. coli. The L. acidophilus strain in Ortho Biotic 100 has been specifically chosen because of its strong adherence and survival attributes in the GI tract. It has been demonstrated in vitro to tolerate exposure to gastric acid and bile salts, and has the ability to withstand antibiotics including Ciproflaxin, Polymyxin B and Tetracycline.

Lactobacillus paracasei (Lpc-37)

Lactobacillus paracasei has been shown to protect against the harmful effects of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus). L. paracasei colonizes the intestinal tract by reinforcing defense mechanisms that support an immune response. It does this by supporting T-helper cell production and secreting secretory IgA (sIgA), an antibody critical for supporting intestinal immunity. L. paracasei Lpc-37 is a gastric acid-resistant strain and has been shown in vitro to withstand antibiotics such as Ciproflaxin and Vancomycin.

Bifidobacterium bifidum (Bb-02)

Bifidobacterium bifidum has been shown to effectively compete with harmful bacteria such as E. coliS. aureus and Camplylobacter jejuni, which suggests B. bifidum’s lactic acid and acetic acid production provides an antagonistic action against pathogens to help maintain microflora balance.

Bifidobacterium lactis (BI-04)

Bifidobacterium lactis is predominantly found in the colon. A double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial on subjects receiving B. lactis or placebo for eight weeks found that B. lactis supported a balanced immune response in individuals hypersensitive to environmental allergens. Studies examining immune development and dietary supplementation with B. lactis have shown that it supports GI health by reducing intestinal permeability.

Lactobacillus plantarum (Lp-115)

Lactobacillus plantarum is a beneficial bacteria commonly found in fermented foods including sauerkraut, pickles, brined olives and sourdough. L. plantarum has been found to compete against strains of Clostridium difficile and Clostridium perfringens, due to the production of bacteriocins (lethal proteins) that inhibit bacterial growth. Studies have also demonstrated that L. plantarum helps boost the immune response by stimulating Th1-mediated immunity.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus (Lr-32)

Lactobacillus rhamnosus has been proven to have remarkable survivability in the acid and bile environments in the GI tract. L. rhamnosus is particularly useful because of its ability to adhere to cells, enhance microflora balance, and inhibit pathogen adherence. L. rhamnosus was also found to positively affect inflammatory and immune gene signaling of over 1,700 genes when administered in high doses
