PRODUCT IS A SYNERGYSTIC MIXTURE OF

Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. brevis, L. salivarius, L. helveticus, L. bulgaricus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and citrus pectin.

PRODUCT DISCUSSION
PhysioLogics' BioFlora® HP provides a unique combination of a specially cultured strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus, plus five additional probiotic organisms and pectin to support digestive function and promote healthy intestinal flora. Acidophilus promotes the health functioning of the intestinal system. Each serving provides 9 X 109 intestinal probiotics at time of manufacture plus 300 mg of pectin.*

STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
The human gastrointestinal (GI) tract contains approximately 1014 bacterial cells comprised of more than 400 species. Because some of the bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract are friendly to the body, it is extremely important to maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora. Nutrition and the amount and type of fermentable material in the gut all influence the intestinal microbial ecology.*

Probiotics are symbiotic microorganisms that, when ingested, exhibit positive influences on the health and physiology of the host. In addition to nutrient support during fermentation, probiotics can promote the digestibility of certain dietary nutrients. Lactobacillus acidophilus, naturally found in foods such as yogurt, releases many enzymes into the intestinal lumen which may support the bioavailability of proteins and fats. Lactases produced by lactic acid bacteria are delivered to the stomach and intestines, which may aid in lactose digestion. In addition, evidence suggests that Probiotics can promote both specific and nonspecific immune responses.*

L. acidophilus can help establish a healthy gastrointestinal flora composition through a variety of mechanisms, including competition for nutrients and attachment sites, promoting acidic pH, production of hydrogen peroxide and bacteriocins, immune system support and lactase production. L. acidophilus is also a normal constituent of the vaginal flora, where it contributes to the maintenance of a healthy acidic environment.*

INDICATIONS
Probiotics are commensal food supplements that improve the microbial composition of the intestines and aid in digestion of nutrients. Because it is believed that most probiotics are not permanently attached to the intestinal wall, daily consumption of these bacteria may help maintain a supportive level. In addition, antibiotics and certain regularly prescribed drugs may cause probiotic depletions. Supplementing your clients' diets with BioFlora® HP may be desirable to promote gastrointestinal health by ensuring a daily supply of beneficial probiotics.*

HOW CLIENTS MAY BENEFIT
  • Promote balanced intestinal and vaginal flora environments for healthy function.*
  • Supports digestion and a favorable balance of intestinal flora.*
  • Provides a combination of five exceptional probiotic strains.*

 

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
  • One placebo-controlled double-blind study was conducted to study the effects of Lactobacillus acidophilus on maintaining intestinal health and regularity. A total of 820 people traveling on vacation in two locations to southern Turkey were assigned to receive either 2 X 109 probiotics per day or placebo. Significant support of intestinal health was observed in one of the two destinations studied. Authors postulate the lack of significant findings in the other location may have been due to uneven age distribution or dissimilar microbial environments of the localities.
SUMMARY
Probiotics are live commensal food supplements that support the microbial composition of the intestines, aiding in the digestion of nutrients. PhysioLogics' BioFlora® HP provides a mixture of beneficial symbiotic bacteria and citrus pectin for those who want to receive a daily supply of probiotics to maintain healthy intestinal flora.*

SUGGESTED DOSAGE
For adults, take two (2) capsules daily, preferably with meals, or follow the advice of your health care professional. As a reminder, discuss the supplements and medications you take with your health care providers.
