Viridian Synbiotic Daily helps maintain the balance in the gut of the beneficial bacteria and therefore helps maintain a healthy digestive system.The high potency of this product means it is a much more targeted therapeutic dose, more appropriate after heavy antibiotic use, or serious digestive upset to help rebalance the gut flora.
It has been estimated that over 400 species of bacteria inhabit our digestive tracts with different species being found in various locations e.g. the stomach, jejunum, duodenum etc. A balance of the appropriate flora is critical to ensuring not only a healthy intestinal tract, but also for long-term health through protection against pathogenic organisms and supporting gastro-intestinal health. The most important friendly bacteria are lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum both belonging to the bacilli species. The symbiotic partnership between humankind and lactobacilli has a long history of important nutritional and therapeutic benefits for humans.
What friendly bacteria is in Viridian Synbiotic Daily?
Acidophilus is the most prominent friendly resident of the small intestine.
- Milk digesting — The lactobacilli produce the enzyme lactase, thus aiding in the digestion and absorption of nutrients.
- Anti-biotic — Acidophilus has been shown to produce powerful antibiotic substances such as acidophilin, lactolin and acidolin that have been found to help boost the immune system. The lactobacilli also produce substantial amounts of lactic, formic and acetic acids, which may inhibit other organisms due to the acid environment.
- Pro-oxygen — the lactobacilli require oxygen for their growth and proliferation, this reduces the local oxygen, limiting survival rates of competing pathogens.
L. Bulgaricus is a transient i.e. non-resident friendly flora, which helps other probiotic organisms to flourish. This organism offers similar benefits to acidophilus in that it is lactic acid producing. Much of the therapeutic data supports the use of this important transient organism alongside its counterparts lactobacillus acidophilus and the bifidobacteria.
