OptiBac Probiotics 'For travelling abroad'
This supplement contains 4 high quality strains of live cultures, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52, all proven to survive to reach the gut alive, and to survive in warmer, more humid climates.
When eating and drinking different foods in unfamiliar environments it may be beneficial to have a healthy coating of natural bacteria in the intestines in order to support your immunity and digestion. OptiBac Probiotics 'For travelling abroad' may help you to maintain levels of friendly bacteria - giving travellers the increased confidence to enjoy their holidays anxiety-free.
What's more, the particular strains in this live cultures supplement have been shown to survive at higher temperatures, making this a suitable travel companion for destinations with hotter, more humid climates than that of the UK. Make this shelf-stable and cabin friendly product your travel essential for far flung locations such as Egypt, India and Thailand.
How does For travelling abroad work?
Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 is a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain of acidophilus has been well studied to survive your stomach acidity and biliary salts; and to travel to the intestines without damage. L. acidophilus Rosell-52 has been through numerous in vitro tests, which suggest it may help to provide a protective barrier against foreign microbes.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique yeast sold widely across Europe, especially in France and Germany. S. boulardii has undergone extensive scientific research documenting its safety, and research shows it can flush out pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella (responsible for 70% of Traveller's Diarrhoea).
Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 is a natural component of the intestinal friendly bacteria; the rhamnosus species is one of the most studied in the world of live cultures. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 from OptiBac Probiotics has been proven to resist bile and gastric acidity over pH 3 - therefore if taken at mealtimes (when pH is around 4), it will pass through the stomach without being damaged.
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 colonises primarily in the large intestine or colon. In vitro studies suggest it may help to promote the production of antibodies, support the body against toxins and inhibit the development of undesirable bacteria by competitively excluding their attachment to the intestinal wall lining.
Note: For travelling abroad probiotic is intended for those concerned about traveller's diarrhoea when in exotic locations. Customers who on the other hand wish to maintain regularity during travels should see OptiBac Probiotics 'Bifidobacteria & fibre'.
