Probiotics act by stimulating the growth of microorganism colonies in our bodies that are “good” or helpful. These beneficial bacteria play an important role in maintaining the natural balance in our systems, stabilizing our digestive organs’ barriers against undesirable microorganisms, producing substances that inhibit “bad” microorganisms’ growth, outcompeting undesirable microorganisms, and stimulating immune responses.1
Specific strains of probiotics aid in accomplishing these digestive benefits in specific ways:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus: (in all Florajen products)
produces trace amounts of hydrogen peroxide that assist in regulating the digestive as well as vaginal environments for a healthy, comfortable balance of flora, while also benefiting overall health, wellness, and the immune system.
- Bifidobacterium longum: (in Florajen Digestion and Florajen Kids)
produces short chain fatty acids that help reduce harmful bacteria, and improve the intestinal environment.2
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus: (in Florajen Kids and Florajen Women)
can help prevent and ease gastrointestinal infections and diarrhea.1
