These 12 strains include 8 lactobacilli species and one lactococcus species for the ultimate health of the full length of the small intestine as well as 3 bifidobacteria species for the ultimate health of the complete length of the large intestine.
Different species in a single formula more closely approximates the normal composition of intestinal flora. As probiotic properties are different from one strain to the other, each strain will contribute specific inhibitive functions against pathogenic or putrefactive bacteria. Multi strain probiotic formulations are also recommended because each person’s intestinal flora has a unique bacterial community (very similar to fingerprints), therefore each person will react differently to the absorption of the same probiotic strain.
For some people L. acidophilus might be most effective while for others L. rhamnosus. L. casei might adapt more easily to their intestinal flora.Each strain in the Ultimate Multi Probiotic has undergone a stringent selection process (ourL. acidophilus was chosen after studying the probiotic properties of 95 different L. acidophilus strains.)
Each strain has been carefully selected for natural gastric resistance. Testing each strain shows no loss of bacteria after 3 hours at 37C in gastric solutions at pH3/pH4. The natural pH of an empty stomach is 1.5. After eating stomach’s pH goes up to 5-6. This is critical, as these strains will survive the stomach’s acidity without enteric coating and reach the intestines at full potency.
Each strain has been selected for ability to grow in the presence of high bile levels. High growth in the presence of bile also maximizes probiotic potency. Antibiotic compatibility is also important. Strains are chosen so they do not interfere with the effectiveness of antibiotics but still protect from their adverse effects. Probiotics also have been selected for establish
