Pro-Gut is an oral probiotic indicated for the management of gastrointestinal problems e.g. diarrhoea, constipation, flatulence, IBS, etc.
Pro-Gut is an oral probiotic to promote a healthy balance of digestive flora. Pro-Gut is a synbiotic: a combination of probiotics and prebiotics.Probiotics are live non-harmful bacteria that, when consumed in adequate amounts, confer a beneficial effect to the health of the host. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that benefit the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacterial species that can support the health of the host. For instance, prebiotics can be beneficial to probiotics such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.
Pro-Gut contains 9 billion live bacteria from 8 different strains that are characteristic of a healthy normal human gut microflora, and include strains of Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Streptococcus. To ensure the survival of these bacteria during the journey through the stomach, Pro-Gut is micro-encapsulated. In addition, the prebiotic inulin is included to stimulate the growth of friendly and healthy intestinal bacteria which supports good colon health.
• Effective for diarrhoea, IBS & other gut disturbances. • Micro-encapsulation technology to ensure the survival of the good bacteria.
