Lactobacteria Food III with new formulation and improved taste is our most recent significant breakthrough for maintaining a healthy population of beneficial lactobacteria in the intestinal tract. Lactobacteria Food III feeds the lactobacteria already present in one's body (prebiotic activity), namely those already implanted and colonizing the walls of the intestines. As these grow and multiply, their offspring colonizes the intestinal walls as well. In this way a healthy colonization is achieved in a few days or weeks without the need to be implanted. It now contains Inulin. A Prebiotic soluble dietary fiber that aids enhances and feeds the lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, the probiotic intestinal microflora. Produces short chain fatty acids which Inhibit the growth of disease causing bacteria, are used by the liver for energy production, have cancer preventing properties within the intestine, improves fat metabolism that helps lower LDL cholesterol levels and confer additional cardio-protection. Increases the systemic absorption of calcium and magnesium.
