What are Microbiotics?
Microbiotics are the beneficial, friendly microflora that occur throughout the digestive tract. Poor eating habits, chlorinated drinking water, stress and disease and the use of antibiotics in food production as well as in medical treatments can wreak havoc in the gastrointestinal tract by destroying good microflora and allowing undesirable microflora to multiply.
Why do we need Microbiotics?
When the ratio of good microflora to bad is lowered, problems can arise such as excessive gas, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation and poor absorption of nutrients. Whilst it is true that non-beneficial microflora are naturally occurring in the intestinal tract problems begin when their growth goes unchecked. Microbiotics play an especially important role in keeping in check the pathogenic microflora that cause disease.
A healthy lower intestine should contain at least 85% friendly microflora to prevent the over colonisation of disease causing micro organisms like E.coli and Salmonella.
Infants immune defences are not yet fully working . Babies pick up friendly microflora from their mothers during their passage through a clean and healthy birth canal. Studies show that B. infantis was found in approximately 60% of full-term newborns who were born vaginally and only 9% of babies born by Caesarean Section. Formula fed babies also have significant differences from breastfed babies in the composition of their gut microflora because the heat used to pasteurise formula kills all microflora.
The Infant's Blend contains:
Lactobacillus casei: a microflora commonly used for milk fermentation and has shown to be helpful in treating diarrhoea caused by antibiotics and viruses.
Streptococcus thermophilus: a transient microbiotic from dairy origin. Producing large quantities of lactic acid it limits the growth of unfriendly microflora and helps in the prevention and treatment of diarrhoea.
Bifidobacterium infantis: the most important micro-organism found in the large intestine of infants and is an effective adjunct therapy in the treatment of acute diarrhoea. It has been shown to stimulate the production of immunomodulating agents.
Lactobacillus acidophilus: one of the most prominent micro-organisms found in the small intestine. It produces lactic acid which inhibits yeast growth as well as natural antibiotics which enhance immune functions.
Bifidobacterium bifidum: found primarily in the large intestine. As a producer of B vitamins it helps the body in the completion of its digestive process, specifically in the absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals.
Bifidobacterium breve: colonises the large intestine and is a producer of lactic and acetic acids that inhibit the growth of undesirable microflora. It enhances immune response against various pathogenic antigens and has been shown to suppress the growth of ulcer-inducing microflora. B.breve can colonise the immature bowel of infants effectively and is associated with better weight gain in low birthweight infants.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus: a transient strain from dairy origin that carries important protective functions on its way through the intestinal tract.
Lactobacillus casei: 35% Streptococcus thermophilus: 20% Bifidobacterium infantis: 15% Lactobacillus acidophilus: 15% Bifidobacterium bifidum: 5% Bifidobacterium breve: 5% Lactobacillus bulgaricus: 5% In a base of maltodextrin and ascorbic acid.See all Product Description
