Probiotic–5 is a dairy-free blend of key probiotic bacteria to support immune and gastrointestinal health. This dairy–free formula provides 10 billion CFU of the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis. Research indicates that these strains may have particular health promoting properties for gastrointestinal (GI) and immune health. L. acidophilus and B. longum have been shown to promote healthy cytokine production in the colon and maintain healthy GI barrier function, in part by supporting the mucosal lining of the GI tract.
Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora, support healthy yeast balance, and promote GI comfort. A study involving elderly individuals indicated that a mixture of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria maintained healthy gut ecology.
Studies also suggest that probiotics support immune health, enhancing B cell, T cell and NK cell function. A randomized, double blind, placebo–controlled intervention study involving 479 adults indicates that B. longum and B. bifidum promote overall health and T cell function.
Another randomized, double blind, placebo–controlled clinical trial involving 25 elderly volunteers suggests that B. lactis encourages immune function by enhancing phagocytic capacity and activity. Probiotic–5 (dairy–free) is a high–strength blend of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria to promote GI tract health and comfort, immune cell function and overall health.
