Many health conscious individuals today are becoming aware of the role of beneficial bacteria in the human body. Healthy bacteria in the gut act as a barrier against harmful bacteria by preventing their attachment to the intestinal lining. Disturbances in this delicate gastrointestinal microflora increase the susceptibility to pathogens and raise the risk of infection and disease. Probiotics help to re-establish and support a normal bacterial microflora in the intestines, particularly after antibiotic use.
Probiotic-3 is a unique probiotic formula that contains three bacterial strains with specific health-promoting attributes: Enterococcus faecium T-110, Clostridium butyricum TO-A, and Bacillus subtilis TO-A. While these three strains are almost unheard of in the North American market, they have been widely used in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia for over 50 years. Each has been shown to survive the stomach’s acidic environment, bile acids and digestive enzymes, meaning they survive transit through the body, reaching the intestines alive and intact.
Over 30 clinical studies on Probiotic-3 in Japanese and English have highlighted such health benefits as reducing allergies, improving immunity, fighting colds and flu, promoting detoxification, reducing intestinal symptoms such as bloating and constipation and reducing travelers and antibiotic-induced diarrhea.
