Probiotics help to re-establish and support a normal bacterial microflora in the intestines.
Probiotic-3 is a unique probiotic formula that contains three bacterial species with specific health-promoting attributes: Enterococcus faecium T-110, Clostridium butyricum TO-A, and Bacillus subtilis TO-A. While these three strains are new to the North American market, they have been widely used in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia for over 50 years.
E. faecium T-110 is a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract that produces lactic acid, which reduces the gastrointestinal pH, thus preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. C. butyricum TO-A is also a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract. It breaks down dietary fibre into several beneficial nutrients, one of which is butyric acid, which feeds cells of the GI tract. B. subtilis TO-A supports the growth of E. faecium and C. butyricum, as well as the growth of several strains of the beneficial Bifidobacterium species.
Clinical studies have shown wide-ranging health benefits including allergy reduction, improved immunity, reduced bloating, constipation and diarrhea, and even enhanced detoxification. Additionally, Probiotic-3 is the only probiotic product in Canada that contains a strain of bacteria from the Clostridium family, which has been shown to have antagonistic effects against several pathogenic bacteria such as C. difficile, H. pylori, and E. coli.
Probiotic-3’s unique formula combines three human strains that has been clinically studied for over 55 years and is regularly used in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia. Each strain was carefully chosen to ensure synergy and safety with the others.
