The three probiotic organisms in ThreeLac are known to be assertive toward some of the more common strains of yeast and fungi. Similar to, but not identical to acidophilus, bifidus and other friendly flora, ThreeLac organisms works well along with those, but do not replace the other friendly flora in their specific functions.
These organisms are:
A gram-positive, rod-shaped, endospore-forming, aerobic bacterium. It is found in soil and is non-pathogenic. The value of externally-supplied live bacteria for the maintenance of health in humans has been recognised both scientifically in published literature and commercially in the availability of probiotic products. It has been found to be harmless to humans or the environment.
A gram-positive, endospore-forming, lactic-acid producing bacterium used in Japan for over twenty years. It represents a significant breakthrough in Lactobacillus supplementation as a safe, effective probiotic which needs no special handling and which survives in stomach acid. Bacillus Coagulans is considered semi-resident, meaning that it takes up only temporary residence in the human intestines.
Enterococci are gram-positive, spherical bacterium that colonize in groups or chains. This organism is naturally found (resident) as part of the digestive tract flora in intestines of mammals, including humans. In the healthy intestinal tract they take their place among hundreds of other friendly flora and function as part of the normal eco-system. Clinical studies have been performed on certain strains of Enterococcus Faecalis, showing them to be non-pathogenic. The ThreeLac manufacturer has given assurance that the Enterococcus Faecalis strain used in ThreeLac does not have the virulent properties of some other strains.
