The Science Behind Florax DS
What is a probiotic? A probiotic is an organism that conveys numerous health benefits when consumed in adequate amounts. Probiotics are ideal for regular use to maintain digestive and immune health and especially during antibiotic treatment, when the antibiotics kill not only the bad bacteria but also the good ones.
The active ingredient in Florax DS, Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cepa Fr 1972 or brewer’s/nutritional yeast, is a probiotic microorganism with a long history of safe and effective use. In fact, it is one of the most widely researched microorganisms in the world.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cepa Fr 1972 has been clinically proven to provide safe, natural relief from occasional diarrhea, bloating, gas, and cramping, while supporting digestive and immune health. It promotes healthy, efficient digestive function and aids the body’s ability to break down carbohydrates, proteins and minerals.
An inability to naturally break down foods can result in a number of digestive upsets. Probiotics help boost the digestive system and promote digestive health.
Probiotic yeasts cells are 5-50 times the size of many bacterial cells. This provides for greater gut coverage. Essentially, one probiotic yeast cell is equivalent to 5-50 bacterial cells. Our products have been shown to be effective at a level of 500 million live probiotic cells, which is potentially the equivalent of 2.5 billion to 25 billion bacterial cells.
Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Cepa Fr 1972 is an probiotic yeast that produces lactic acid and absorbs nutrients that pathogenic or “bad” bacteria use as a food source. Lactic acid aids in the GI tract becoming more acidic which is not ideal for pathogenic bacteria.
Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Cepa Fr 1972 probiotic cultures prefer more acidic environments. During production in laboratory testing, it is proven that the cultures grow better in more acidic conditions. This is important because probiotic yeasts naturally survive gastric transit which includes passing through the acid of the stomach and the bile of the liver. Many probiotic bacteria cannot make this same claim without additional processing such as micro-encapsulation or slow release capsules which potentially delay the activation of the active ingredients. Our probiotic yeast cultures are delivered in a live, activated state, allowing for immediate response.
Additionally, Brewer’s yeast are known to be rich in nutrients such as chromium, certain B-vitamins, protein, selenium, potassium, iron, zinc, and magnesium and provides numerous nutritional benefits. Yeast is often taken as a vitamin supplement because it is 50% protein.
Florax DS uses an exclusive strain of Brewer’s yeast, which was determined to be very stable when delivered in liquid form and has been produced and sold in Brazil for more than 20 years. Our state-of-the art facility meticulously monitors quality control and produces sterile products.
