A probiotic is classically defined as “a preparation of, or a product containing viable, defined microorganisms in sufficient numbers, which alter the microbiota (typically by colonization) in a compartment of the host, and by that, exert beneficial health effects in this host”. In humans the organ considered to be the most diverse and the most metabolically active is the gastrointestinal tract. An integral part of an optimally functioning gastrointestinal tract is the microbial community. BioDoph-7 Plus® supplies a blend of pro- and prebiotics, including Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium breve, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salvarius, and Streptococcus thermophilus, along with the prebiotics Inulin (from chicory root), Arabinogalactans (from Larch), and Marshmallow root (extract).
BioDoph-7 Plus® supplies ingredients that:
• Improves digestive function
• Improves immunologic status
• Increases beneficial anaerobes
• Decreases “unfriendly” organisms
• Stimulates phagocytosis
• Soothes gastric mucosa
Like probiotics, prebiotics also play a beneficial role in GI health, via their alteration of the gut flora composition in favor of beneficial bacterial. Prebiotics are categorized as a “nondigestible food ingredient that beneficially affects the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon.” The prebiotic inulin demonstrated beneficial results with administration, by virtue of its ability to stimulate the enumeration of the colonic Bifidobacteria population, thus improving the composition of the gut flora. Arabinogalactan from larch is also an effective prebiotic fiber. In the large intestine it is actively fermented by friendly intestinal microflora, resulting in an increased number of beneficial anaerobes, while simultaneously decreasing unfriendly organisms such as Clostridia. Marshmallow root extract, also considered a prebiotic, supplies polysaccharides, including arabinogalactans and glucan. It stimulates phagocytosis, and has been shown to alleviate local irritation of the gastric mucosa. Thus, when considering overall health benefits, the combination of prebiotics and probiotics supplied by BioDoph-7 Plus® are a judicious choice, having documented success in improving gastrointestinal health. Additionally, by utilizing a prophylactic approach, gastrointestinal complaints may be addressed in a means that will promote optimal wellness.
