Pro-otic x 90 Capsules

In stock
Enjoy a healthy digestive system with Nutrigold Pro-otic. A carefully curated blend of four ‘free from dairy’ beneficial active cultures matching those found naturally occurring in the digestive system. Containing over three billion active bacterial cultures per capsule of L.acidophilus, L.rhamnosus and L.casei together with B. longum together with a pre-biotic.

Nutrigold Pro-otic contains 4 well understood strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium at 3 billion CFUs (Colony Forming Units) per capsule. These beneficial organisms are known to support the intestinal microbial balance in both the small and large intestines. The small amount of pre-biotic fructooligosaccharides (FOS) now included in the Pro-otic formulation are not digested or absorbed but serve as a food for the bifidobacteria.

The capsules contain at least 20% more beneficial organisms than the label claim at the time of manufacture to counter the inevitable potency decay due to environmental temperature fluctuations and shelf life. Freeze-dried strains are used in Pro-otic to increase shelf life and their potency. Pro-otic can be stored at normal room temperature, so there is no need for inconvenient refrigeration.

Beneficial bacteria live strains can help maintain a healthy intestinal balance, support the structure and functional integrity of the epithelial lining, and support immune response and resistance.

Specifically, the human strains of Lactobacilli found in Pro-otic include:

  • L. acidophilus - produces DL-lactic acid, amylase (carbohydrate-digesting enzyme), and proteins that limit growth of other bacteria. It is resistant to bile and gastric acids so can survive in the intestinal tract and has moderate lactase (lactose dairy sugar digestive enzyme) activity.
  • L. rhamnosus - supports the normal activity of cells in the immune system. It also sometimes occurs in the large intestine, where it can create favourable conditions for the implantation and growth of beneficial bifidobacteria. It also supports lactase activity in the stomach and small intestine.
  • L. casei - can survive in a wide pH and temperature range and produces DL-lactic acid and amylase. It is smaller than L. acidophilus and complements its growth.
  • B. longum can ferment carbohydrates and produce lactic acid, creating a healthy pH in the colon. They also support the absorption of vitamins and can take up iron from the contents of the bowel. They support SIgA production in the intestinal lining, bolstering the natural gut immune response. Bifidobacteria are resistant to bile and gastric acids and have moderate lactase activity.
