BioCare MindLinx, the gut-brain connection, is a synergistic combination of specific probiotics and L-glutamine to support the healthy function of the gastrointestinal tract and cognitive wellbeing.
The amino acid glutamine is the primary fuel of the lining of the intestines and is important for immune function. It can also be used as a fuel by brain cells and is stored in muscles.
Probiotic bacteria favourably alter the intestinal microflora balance, promote good digestion and boost immune function.
Lactobacilli and bifidobacteria maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora by producing organic compounds, such as lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and acetic acid.
Our digestive system is colonised by billions of bacteria and most of them are harmless. However, a favourable balance between the beneficial and the pathogenic bacteria must be kept to maintain a healthy system and its regular nature.
