Friendly Flora Plus
FRIENDLY FLORA PLUS
FRIENDLY FLORA PLUS is a probiotic which now has "zinc-carnosine" as PepZinGI™ as the plus. Probiotic means "in favor of life" which supplies healthy bacteria to the gastrointestinal tract. From the day you were born your digestive tract has been introduced to a steady stream of bacteria -some helpful, some harmful. One key to intestinal health is maintaining a balance of helpful bacteria and harmful bacteria, thus avoiding digestive imbalance. Many factors including poor diet, age, travel, stress, antibiotic use and medications can disturb your intestinal balance and decrease the level of probiotic bacteria. Taking a daily probiotic supplement can help replenish these friendly bacteria to keep your digestive system in balance and working properly. Bacillus coagulans is designed by nature to survive strong stomach acid and thrive so more probiotic cells can help support your digestive system.
Bacillus coagulans is like a seed, which serves as a natural protective shield against the heat and pressure of manufacturing and the strong acids in your stomach to arrive alive and then thrive in your intestines-their intended target. Other traditional probiotic bacteria such as lactobacillus, acidophilus and bifidobacteria are fragile; they are not able to form these protective spores, making them more vulnerable to manufacturing processes and stomach acid. The godfather of probiotic research is Elie Metchnikoff, a Russian physician, who established that that the growth of toxin-producing putrefactive organisms in the gastrointestinal tract could be controlled by the implantation of beneficial lactobacilli in the gut. Friendly Flora Plus supplies a viable strain of lactic-acid producing bacteria called "bacillus coagulans" or "spore forming" lactic acid producing bacteria. Bacillus coagulans do not degrade like most forms; it is resilient and has decades of use and clinical documentation.
Zinc-carnosine: is the single molecule of zinc and carnosine, two natural substances, but has been a successful pharmaceutical drug in Japan since 1994 for stomach disorders such as ulcers, heartburn, dyspepsia and infections with Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria associated with stomach ulcers. H. pylori is present in over 50% of the global population and approximately 20% of the US population and is closely associated with stomach irritation and ulcerations.
Zinc-carnosine is unique in that it supports the natural cytoprotective mechanisms without interfering in the normal digestive process (i.e. acid suppression). Based upon a series of animal studies, zinc-carnosine reduces the inflammatory cascade that follows irritation and injury to the stomach lining. This includes a blunting of genetic pro-inflammatory signaling and of the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
Zink-carnosine supports the mucosal lining, the natural defense of the stomach and GI tract; and, structurally inhibits harmful bacteria associated with stomach irritation.
Friendly Flora Plus provides 4.5 billion cfu bacillus coagulans per capsule,16 mgs Zinc-carnosine as PepZin GI™ ,75 mg PepZin GI™ (Zinc L-carnosine complex), 59 mg Carnosine from PepZin GI™, per capsule 60 capsules per bottle. Suggested dose: 1-2 per day with meals. Or as suggested by a physician.
