Protec with Bifidus with FOS
A new and updated Natural Factors Probiotic formula for general use by
youth, adults and seniors, with L.rhamnosus as the predominant strain.
Protec is enteric-coated to protect fragile probiotics from digestive
secretions until they reach the small and large intestine.
L.rhamnosus is probably the most important probiotic strain for health
of the mouth to the small intestine. It protects by coating the mucus,
preventing toxins from reaching the blood. It even results in better
smelling breath. It survives temperature extremes and is resistant to
bile salts and stomach acid, ferments 23 sugars and inhibits negative
bacteria and yeast growth. It is hardier and keeps better without
refrigeration. Compared to L.acidophilus, L.rhamnosus is 8 to 10 times
more prolific, has a larger spectrum of sugar fermentation (important
for people with milk sugar intolerance) has better control over
putrefactive microbes, and is more effective at inhibiting
L.acidophilus produces lactic acid which keeps a proper pH balance in
the small intestine, inhibiting yeast growth. Studies have show that
L.acidophilus is effective in reducing lactose intolerance, inhibiting
undesirable organisms in the intestine, reducing cholesterol levels and
B.bifidus helps maintain health of the large intestine in both children
and adults, promoting regular bowel movements, giving protection from
yeast and bacterial pathogens such as E.coli, Clostridium and Shigella
B.longum is effective against putrefactive and pathogenic bacteria. It
has anti-carcinogenic activity, deconjugates bile salts, helps to
synthesize some of the B-complex vitamins and may lower the content of
FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) are short-chained indigestible sugars found
in chicory. They feed on and increase the amount of healthy bacteria in
the colon. As they are indigestible they pass through the small
intestine into the colon intact where friendly bacteria feed on them and
multiply. FOS, often referred to as prebiotics, are the ideal addition
to a probiotic product to keep healthy amounts of friendly bacteria in
the digestive tract.
