Ultimate Flora Probiotic
Our bodies are finely tuned and complex units and any kind of imbalance in one area can have serious repercussions for our well being. One of the critical systems is our digestive system, as it not only ensures that our body has the nutrients it requires but it also impacts our immune system and ability to fight off disease and is susceptible to food allergies.
A vital part of an effectively functioning digestive system is the bacterial balance within the gut. There are bacteria, such as those of the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species, which bring benefits to the body as they compete with pathogenic or bad bacteria for space and nutrients and can effectively crowd out such bacteria.
An ideal bacterial balance is around 4:1 good to bad. However, a range of factors can disturb this balance by reducing the number of good bacteria or creating an environment within the intestines that favors bad bacteria rather than good. In such cases the number of beneficial bacteria needs to be increased and a way of doing this is to take probiotic supplements.
Ultimate Flora is a comprehensive range of probiotic supplements offered by ReNew Life, a company that believes digestive efficiency and good dietary choices leading to good nutrition brings optimal health, both physical and mental.
Critical Colon BifidoMAX 80 billion
The human intestinal tract is made up of the small intestine and the large intestine (otherwise known as the colon), each of which performs particular functions and has its own specific bacterial environment.
The predominant type of beneficial bacteria found naturally in the colon is the Bifidobacteria. Despite this fact, it is only in the last ten years that this strain has been used significantly in the development of probiotics.
As mentioned, the levels of good bacteria in our digestive system can deteriorate and it has been found that levels of Bifidobacteria also begin to decline in middle age. This decline could be linked to a variety of disorders and diminished function within the colon. There are also suggestions that the good bacteria assist in combating cancers.
Critical Colon BifidoMAX 80 billion is specifically designed to support digestive health in the colon. Comprised of 14 strains of good bacteria and delivering 80 million live cultures per capsule (52 million of which are Bifidobacteria), it is formulated for people with acute digestive care needs and is claimed to help with irritable bowel syndrome.
Critical Care 50 billion
A course of antibiotics is a sure way to reduce the number of healthy bacteria in our digestive systems. Unfortunately, while the antibiotic targets the bacteria causing disease in our bodies it also kills our good gut bacteria.
Critical Care 50 Billion is ReNew Life’s probiotic remedy for this. It is a mix of Bifidobacteria (30 million per capsule) and Lactobacilli and Lactococcus (20 million per capsule). Its therapeutic strength means that it is also ideal for those with fairly severe digestive problems.
As with many of the Ultimate Flora range Critical Care benefits from the Enteric-GUARD® technology that allows delayed release from the capsule, thereby ensuring that the bacteria reach the colon and are not destroyed by the extremely acid environment in the stomach.
Vaginal Support 50 billion
Lactobacillus acidophilus is the predominant good bacteria in the small intestine but it is also the predominant one in the vaginal tract. If the levels here drop, some of the bad microorganisms that thrive are Gardnerella vaginalis, Escherichia coli and Chlamydia.
Recognising this, ReNew Life has developed Vaginal Support 50 Billion to help maintain a healthy balance in the vaginal and urinary tracts. This is a nine-strain probiotic delivering 45 million live Lactobacillus cultures and 5 billion Bifidobacteria per capsule.
In looking for a probiotic supplement you need to look carefully at what your specific need is and match that to a product that has the right combination of live cultures. Probiotics have certainly been shown to have potential in treating a number of conditions but it is always wise to consult your doctor before embarking on any course of treatment.
ReNew Life also has a number of other probiotic products aimed at specific age groups or specific needs.
