Douglas Laboratories Multi-Probiotic 4000
Douglas Laboratories Multi-Probiotic 4000 capsules each contains over four billion beneficial organisms, including representatives of both the lactobacillus and bifidobacterium genera, mixed in a base of prebiotic fructooligosaccharide.
Probiotic dietary lactobacilli colonize the intestinal tract, depending on the specific bacterium-to-host affinity. Bacteria are continually in competition for colonization space. The original bacterial colonies have an advantage over transient bacteria. Nevertheless, the composition of the intestinal microflora is dynamic and constantly changing.
If harmful microorganisms proliferate, the equilibrium is disturbed, and it becomes difficult even for indigenous bacteria to maintain their necessary territory to colonize the intestine. Antibiotics tend to kill off both beneficial and harmful bacteria, and thus may also disturb the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microorganisms.
When potent probiotic supplements, such as Douglas Labs Multi-Probiotic 4000, are supplied regularly, chances are greatly increased for establishing and maintaining a healthy population of beneficial intestinal microorganisms. Once established, a normal intestinal microflora rich in lactobacilli creates acidic conditions that are unfavorable for the settlement of pathogenic microorganisms.
Probiotics have been shown to exert a beneficial support through modification of the immune system host via the gut environment.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is one of the most widely studied probiotics, noted and valued for its ability to survive in the harsh conditions of the digestive and urinary tracts.
Douglas Labs Multi-Probiotic 4000 capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support their intestinal microflora with meaningful amounts of beneficial microorganisms.
