PROBIOTIC strains with demonstrated effect include:

LACTOBACILLUS PLANATARUM – helps improve nutrient absorption.  Planatarum has been shown to result in an improvement in IBS symptoms over a 4 week period, with a significant reduction in pain in 1 week.  It reduces cramps, constipation and flatulence.

LACTOBACILLUS FERMENTUM –Relieves symptoms of IBS within 4 weeks. Particularly beneficial for diarrhoea .  It works in the intestinal tract to inhibit bacteria such as Salmonella, Clostridium, Listeria and E. coli sticking to the intestinal wall and growing.  Fermentum functions in the small and large intestine, remains and grows in the intestinal tract for 14 days, and can boost the immune system.

SACCHAROMYCES BOULARDII – Supports the establishment of friendly bacteria, helps to restore nutrient absorption capacity to the small intestinal mucosa, displaces problematic yeast species, and inactivates bacterial toxins.  Is quickly established, and improves enzyme breakdown of carbohydrates.
