NOW® MintDophilus™ is a combination of four probiotics bacterial strains that's specifically formulated to support gastrointestinal health and immune system function. Probiotic bacteria help to maintain the integrity of the intestinal lining‚ support proper intestinal motility‚ participate in the detoxification process‚ and are critical for healthy digestion‚ In addition‚ healthy intestinal florae also help to create a favorite environment for the absorption of nutrients.
The bacterial strains contained in MintDophilus include Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14)‚ Lactobacillus salivarius (Ls-33)‚ Lactobacillus plantarum (Lp-115)‚ and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04). These four strains have been clinically validated for their ability to support healthy digestive and immune system functions. All four strains are resistant to the acid an bile of the human digestive tract and have proven extremely resistant to low pH conditions in‚ in vitro studies.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is commonly found in the human intestinal tract. A good body of research has demonstrated the diverse beneficial effects of this bacterial strain‚ validating its use as a probiotic.
Like L.acidophilus‚ Lactobacillus salivarius is resistant to bile and acid and adheres well to intestinal cells. This and other strains have also shown immunomodulatory activity in some studies.
Lactobacillus plantarum is naturally found in the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract and spontaneously occur in foods that are fermented with lactic acid‚ such as sauerkraut and kimchi. These foods have long been regarded as safe‚ as is L.plantarum‚ which is also supported by a number of studies.
Bifidobacterium lactis is strain of bifidobacteria‚ which were discovered in 1899. Today bifidobacteria in general are well known for their critical role in human intestinal microflora throughout life. Large quantities of bifidobacteria in the gut are typically a sign of normal health status.
MintDophilus™ also includes Inulin‚ a fructooligosaccharide that act as a prebiotic‚ a substance that stimulates the growth of friendly and healthy intestinal bacteria‚ which supports good colon health. Because it also has a low glycemic index it's suitable for many people who are on restricted diets. The refreshing mint flavor of MintDophilus also helps to freshen breath.
