OptiBac Probiotics For Travelling Abroad (20 Capsules)
OptiBac Probiotics For Travelling Abroad is a proven formulation of unique probiotic strains designed to support the travellers digestive health and immunity while abroad.
When eating and drinking unfamiliar foods in foreign environments it pays to maintain a healthy coating of friendly bacteria in the intestines to support natural immunity and digestive health. OptiBac Probiotics for travelling abroad gives travellers the increased confidence to enjoy their trips abroad anxiety-free.
What's it for?
To be taken prior to and during travels abroad to maintain immunity and help support a healthy digestive system.
Who's it for?
For travellers seeking advanced probiotic support for digestion and immunity in foreign environments such as India, Egypt, and Mexico.
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 colonises primarily in the large intestine (or colon). In this region it promotes the production of antibodies, supports the body against toxins and inhibits the development of undesirable bacteria by competitively excluding their attachment to the intestinal wall lining. In addition, a healthy balance of bifidobacteria supports the intestines in assisting transit and optimising a healthy frequency and regularity of bowel movements.
Saccharomyces boulardii a unique probiotic yeast which is sold widely in the US, Scandinavia, Germany & France. S. boulardii has undergone extensive clinical research proving its ability to flush out pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella (responsible for 70% of Travellers Diarrhoea) and to have therapeutic benefits against diarrhoea.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 a natural component of the friendly bacteria in the intestines; the species is one of the most studied in the probiotic world. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 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. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 is able to bind strongly to the intestinal cells and helps maintain a strong immune system.
Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain of friendly bacteria has been well studied to survive the gastric acids and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage. In addition, L. acidophilus Rosell-52 can adhere to the cell wall lining of the intestines and exert beneficial effects in terms of inhibiting intestinal pathogens and supporting immune cells.
OptiBac Probiotics guarantees 5 billion live micro-organisms per vegetarian capsule until the best before date.
