Start with one capsule of our Custom Probiotics first thing in the morning and one capsule at bedtime with one full glass of water. Continue at that dosage for 3 days. Then raise the dosage to two first thing in the morning and two at bedtime for 3 days. Next, raise the dosage to three first thing in the morning and three at bedtime.Please note that every digestive system is different and unique like a fingerprint. You need to find the dosage that best suits YOU. It may be 1, 2, 4 or 6 capsules per day. Thus gradual increase in dosage is the best way to find this optimum personal level.Does NOT contain: Dairy, preservatives, sugar, gluten, soy, wheat, artificial colors, flavors or FOS.STORAGE: Keep refrigerated to retain maximum potency. Probiotics must be ingested regularly for any health promoting properties to persist. It is possible to manipulate the composition of the intestinal microflora in adults through dietary supplementation with probiotics. This concept is gaining popularity throughout the world.The mode of action of a probiotic may include host microflora modulation, e.g., by improvement of the microbial balance via interaction of orally applied viable microbes with the microflora in the digestive tract lumen, the modulation of host metabolic activities, e.g., by stabilizing digestive enzyme pattern, and immunomodulation, e.g., by activation and regulation of mucosa-associated and systemic immune system responses. These modes of action are also strain-dependent. The intestinal microflora provides protection against a broad range of pathogens, including certain forms of Clostridia, Escherichia Coli, Salmonella, Shigella and Pseudomonas, as well as yeasts such as Candida albicans.
Mechanisms Of Action Of Probiotics
| Modify microflora to suppress pathogens. |
| Secrete antibacterial substances. |
| Compete with pathogens to prevent their adhesion to the intestine. |
| Compete for nutrients necessary for pathogen survi |
| Antitoxin effect |
A. Promote tight contact between epithelial cells forming a functional barrier.
B. Reducing the secretory and inflammatory consequences of bacterial infection.
C. Enhancing the production of defensive molecules such as mucins.
A. Probiotics as vehicles to deliver anti-inflammatory molecules to the Intestine.
B. Enhance signaling in host cells to reduce inflammatory response.
C. Switch in immune response to reduce allergy.
D. Reduce the production of inflammatory substances.
Qualities of an effective probiotic dietary supplement include the following(4):
1) Must be of human origin
2) Exert a beneficial effect on the host
3) Be nonpathogenic and nontoxic
4) Contain a large number of viable cells
5) Be capable of surviving and metabolizing in the gut
6) Remain viable during storage and use
7) Be antagonistic to pathogens.
Our custom probiotic formulations meet all these requirements. Our five-strain Adult Formula capsules have a total bacterial count of 50 billion microorganisms per capsule at date of expiration. This is verified by certified laboratory analysis. Upon request, we will be pleased to share with you the most recent independent laboratory test results, that indicated 73 billion per capsule.Adult Formula high bacterial count, broad-spectrum formulation and high viability of friendly bacteria all contribute to its effectiveness. It is dairy free, hypoallergenic, and does not contain any artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, sugar, gluten or FOS. Our custom probiotic powder formulations range from 100 to 400 billion microorganisms per gram, the highest potency of any probiotic formulation available in the market today.
We do not use prebiotics, such as fructooligosacharides (F0S) or inulin, in our formulations, with a view to eliminating possible adverse reactions by highly allergic and sensitive individuals, such as Candida or irritable bowel disease (IBD) patients. Most FOS in today’s market contain 5-40% free sugar. We suggest getting FOS from vegetables such as onion, garlic, asparagus, dandelion, artichokes and leeks, which have many additional health promoting and nutritional benefits.
