Fos-a-Dophilus is a 6-strain probiotic formula, ideally suited to young children and adults over 40 years of age, particularly women.
Probiotic bacteria are natural (friendly) inhabitants of our digestive system, where they serve as powerful support for a healthy immune system. Some of these have specific actions against specific strains of bacteria. Their correct balance is an essential component of maintaining health and immune function.
Fos-a-dophilus also contains lactobacillus rhamnosus, a strain that colonises the female vagina, offering support for a healthy bacterial environment and helping to maintain healthy balance in this area.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is also present, as this strain works in the small intestine. The product hence offers a wide range of strains that give support throughout the whole alimentary tract including the mouth and female vagina.
All the strains are acid and bile resistant, and stable at room temperature.
Why might you choose Fos-a-dophilus?
- If you have made changes to your normal dietary intake;
- If you are travelling abroad, and therefore experiencing dietary and water quality changes;
- If you are elderly
