PRAANAMRIT® Probiotic is a probiotic supplement containing equal amounts of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum, two beneficial microorganisms for the gastrointestinal system.
These dairy-free probiotic species are supplied in a base of inulin and are encapsulated in a Kosher-certified vegetarian capsule.
• Lactobacillus acidophilus: L. acidophilus is a widely recognized and highly prevalent probiotic. It is highly resistant to digestive enzymes and produces numerous protein-degrading enzymes capable of metabolizing casein, gluten, and a variety of other carbohydrates to aid their digestion and absorption. L. acidophilus ferments lactose and a variety of other sugars and polysaccharides aiding digestion and lowering the pH of intestinal contents. It also antagonizes a wide range of pathogenic bacteria.
• Bifidobacterium bifidum: B. bifidum is among the many Bifidobacterium species normally found in large numbers in a healthy colon microflora. Its populations are reduced in allergic infants and decline significantly with age. It is important for producing energy substrates for cells of the gastrointestinal tract and has been strongly linked with modulating the immune response and stimulating the body’s response to pathogenic bacteria.
• Inulin Oligosaccharide Base: Inulin is a nondigestible carbohydrate derived from chicory root and is used as a base ingredient in some probiotics. Inulin and other nondigestible carbohydrates are called prebiotics because they can be metabolized by healthful lactobacilli and bifidobacteria stimulating their growth. Inulin differs from other prebiotics in that it is less likely to be used as a food source by pathogenic bacteria and is generally well tolerated by the highly sensitive person.
Together L. acidophilus and B. bifidum limit overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria and yeast and in a clinical study have been found to support the intestines against antibiotic-associated diarrhea and reduce the incidence of positive testing for C. difficile-associated toxins.
