What are probiotics ?

The term probiotic is derived from the Latin word probiota which means “for life”.

Probiotics are microorganisms that live in us and with us in many parts of the body: the intestines, the skin, the vagina, the nostrils and other mucous membranes.

There are nearly 1000 species, more than half of which are found in the intestine1.

This is a constantly evolving microbiotic ecosystem that affects health, depending on the prevalence of good or bad bacteria. It is almost an organic entity that communicates with the brain and other systems to modulate metabolic activities.

Probiotics are available as supplements in appreciable doses or they can added directly to different foods such as yogurt in smaller quantities. They may be of human, animal or dairy origin, or often times of vegetable origin.

Be careful not to confuse probiotics and prebiotics; the latter are food precursors to the former. Prebiotics are fermented in the colon, they then nourish the probiotics of the body.

A variety of benefits

They have been studied for several decades, and the verdict is out…

The substantial scientific data is in favour of probiotics, especially for the following main advantages and uses :

The use of probiotics has no undesirable side effects, unless exaggerating and taken more than the recommended dosage35. When an overdose occurs, the possible symptoms are bloating and constipation36. For patients with advanced infectious conditions and weakened immune systems, some strains of probiotics should advised against37.

THE PROBACLAC ADVANTAGE

Probaclac probiotics are manufactured to the highest standards of the pharmaceutical industry, are clinically tested to demonstrate the desired effects and are certified by Health Canada (with an NPN or natural product number to ensure safety and quality of the product 38).

They contain multi-strain complexes that reflect the natural composition of the human probiotic flora (Bifidobacteria, Lactobacilli).

Multi-strain probiotics

A mixture of strains is favorable since it allows the synergy of activities of the different bacteria, providing a range of health benefits39.

Futhermore, mixed formulas are more effective in controlling pathogenic bacteria such as Clostridium difficile, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella thyphimurium than probiotics with fewer or single strains 40.

Age appropriate probiotic formulas

The Probaclac formulas are adapted to the age, physical condition and composition of the intestinal flora to ensure a better proportion of beneficial bacteria according to their stage in life and their health.

Resistant capsules

The capsules are lyophilized (which means freeze-dried) and colonize the intestinal tract upon contact with heat, moisture and interior darkness.

All our strains have the ability to withstand a pH of 3.0, although it is better not to consume them fasting (very acidic environment) but rather with a meal to promote their proliferation.

The good ratio of probiotics

Probaclac supplements contain between 2 billion (Probaclac Children) and 15 billion (Probaclac Gastrointestinal) of active probiotic cells per capsule, which respects the daily dosage recommended by the Canadian Paediatric Society for children and by Health Canada for adults 13,41.

Despite the fact that fermented products at the grocery store (yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kombucha, etc.) are sources of lactic acid bacteria or prebiotics, they offer fewer bacterial strains than probiotics in capsules and in significantly reduced amounts 20.

The Probaclac supplements contain in addition to fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) which provide prebiotic effects to encourage the multiplication of probiotics throughout the body. It goes without saying that it is important to eat a healthy diet everyday with a variety of nutritious foods beyond supplementation42.
