In the small intestine, Lactobacillus species are the most numerous of the beneficial bacteria normally present. These species promote the conversion of lactose and other sugars into lactic acid, increase acidity in the intestines, and create an unfriendly environment for the growth of pathogenic organisms. Lactobacillus species are involved in nutrient absorption and are also thought to play a role in many of the gut’s physiological functions. In the colon, Bifidobacteria are the most prevalent of the beneficial bacteria normally present.
Bifidobacteria species support healthy digestion, can suppress gut colonization by potentially pathogenic organisms, and appear to promote a healthy immune response.
FloraMend Prime Probiotic is a dairy-free blend of three bacterial strains delivered in an acid-resistant capsule. This unique capsule technology allows the organisms to survive stomach acid and bile, and arrive in the gut where they adhere to the intestinal epithelium, colonize, and exert their beneficial effects.
