With inulin for expanded GI benefits and ease of mixing
In addition, Probiotic Synergy™ Powder contains inulin, a prebiotic fiber which benefits GI health through its ability to modulate gut microbiota. Inulin has a subtly sweet flavor, adding to the already palatable taste of this powder. And because inulin is a soluble fiber it dissolves easily, making it even simpler to mix Probiotic Synergy in water, juice or other liquids.
Probiotics maintain a healthy bacterial environment in the intestines by displacing bad bacteria, aiding digestion of food including dairy products and by combating yeast overgrowth. Beneficial bacteria also aid in the synthesis of vitamin K and CLA and possibly the B vitamins. Many doctors recommend probiotics after a patient has been taking antibiotics. Daily use of Probiotic Synergy™ supports healthy bowel movements.
Why Did DFH Choose These Strains?
Designs for Health gets the probiotic strains for this unique, powdered formula from the largest, most trusted producer of dietary supplement probiotics in the United States. This allows us to take advantage of decades of technical expertise, professional know-how from world experts in microbiology, and a state-of-the-art Quality Control department that ensures both the safety and efficacy of these well-researched strains.
The probiotic strains in this formula were produced using a patented stabilization system; the end-result of a 3-year R&D program performed in the United States. So, as long as you keep this product cool or at room temperature, you can trust these probiotics to be stable and viable for 2 full years, as well as inherently acid and bile-resistant. That means you can simply add 1/2 teaspoon of Probiotic Synergy powder to water, to your PaleoMeal shake, or sprinkle them into yogurt or on any cold food, and you will receive the full benefits of the best researched probiotics in the world.
Lactobacillus plantarum was chosen because of its ability to produce high amounts of beneficial enzymes such as protease for aiding protein digestion.
Bifidobacterium lactis and longum have a tremendous amount of research behind them and are very hearty, stable strains. Bifidobacterium lactis will populate the lower intestine whereas the Lactobacillus plantarum will populate the upper intestine. Lactobacillus plantarum also helps lower the pH, making the environment better for the Bifidobacterium lactis.
Regular consumption of probiotics may improve diarrhea, constipation, immune response, mucin production, dysbiosis, bacterial infections, yeast overgrowth, and should be considered during or after use of antibiotics.
This translates to better results through increased levels of protected bacteria optimally released throughout the entire digestive tract.
Factors which increase the need for probiotics:
- Infants being delivered by C-section or that are not breast fed long enough to establish a strong friendly flora for immunological health
- Pasteurization of foods and low consumption of fermented foods
- Increase in the use of antibiotics in our livestock
- Overuse of antibiotics in treating human infections which may not be caused by bacteria
- Over consumption of sugar and carbohydrates which promote yeast overgrowth
- Over consumption of alcohol which promotes yeast overgrowth
Research Indicates Probiotic Supplementation Helps:
- Immune defense at the intestinal and systemic level
- Minimize the side effects of antibiotics
- Minimize allergic responses
- Prevention/alleviation of traveler's diarrhea
- Prevention/alleviation of diarrhea and constipation in infants, adults and elderly
- Inhibit growth of pathogenic organisms: bacteria, yeast, parasites
- Improve digestion of lactose
- Alleviate inflammatory bowel disease/ulcerative colitis
- Vitamin K synthesis
- Alleviate atopic dermatitis
The product is also stored in glass bottles which provide added potency protection. Designs for Health chose these glass bottles because they are best able to protect these moisture and heat sensitive live organisms from UV rays, moisture and heat.
