Lactospore is an intestinal Probiotic enhancer developed to improve gastrointestinal function and maintain intestinal bacterial balance. Unlike most probiotics, Lactospore does not require refrigeration to maintain optimum potency, as well as it does not cause gas or bloating. It is made with an outer layer to protect against environmental changes. Lactospore increases enzymes for improved digestion, inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria, yeast and parasite and enhances the bioavailability of nutrients from the food.
Lactospore contains nine billion organisms per gram of Bacillus coagulans culture (also known as Lactobacillus sporogenes, or a sporeforming lactic acid bacterium probiotic). It grows in the small intestine where it adds beneficial lactic acid to the digestive tract, which helps to eliminate potentially harmful intestinal bacteria. Thus, Lactospore reduces the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome that are caused by the presence and growth of harmful organisms. Lactospore is effective in case of diarrhea and constipation, fermentation, gas and dyspepsia.
Lactospore is completely vegetarian. It contains no diary, wheat, yeast, corn, sugar, starch, soy or preservatives, as well as there are no added fillers or excipients. Lactospore is a 100% natural probiotic enhancer.
Clinical investigations have showed that Bacilli coagulans (Lactobacilli sporogenes) contained in Lactospore satisfy the essential requirements of an efficient probiotic and can be successfully implanted in the intestine. Bacilli coagulans included in such preparations as capsules, pills, tablets, dried granules or powder usually have the following effect:
When taken in they settle in the digestive tract and produce enough lactic acid and other antagonistic substances to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria. As a matter of fact they survive in gastric secretions and bile of the upper digestive tract and reach the intestine safely. Bacilli coagulans germinate in favorable conditions and produce sufficient viable cells, which proliferate and perform vital healthful functions for the digestive system. Moreover, spores of Bacillus coagulans are semi-resident and are slowly excreted out of the body.
Bacilli retain viability during preparation in pharmaceutical dosage forms and during storage before consumption.
Bacilli coagulans are effective in the form of food additives and dietary supplements. For example, Natto is a traditional fermented product from soy beans, consumed widely in Japan as a rich source of protein. Its flavor is improved by the incorporation of lactic acid bacteria such as Bacillus coagulans, Lactobacillus acidophilus or Pediococcus acidilactiti to the starter culture (Bacillus natto), to yield a product called yogurunatto having superior flavor and storage characteristics as well as improved nutritional and therapeutic properties. Homogenized mushroom (a nutritive medium) is mixed with soy beans and fermented to yield this health food product. The requirement of availability of a number of viable lactic acid bacteria is fulfilled by using Bacillus coagulans.
Bowtrol Probiotic Healthy Flora can serve a great dietary supplement for supporting the balance of your digestive system, normalizing bowel movements and eliminating harmful intestinal bacteria. It is equally effective in case of diarrhea and constipation predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome and is a great addition to Bowtrol Colon and Parasite Cleanser and Colon Control.
