How does For travelling abroad work?
Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 is a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain of acidophilus has been well studied to survive your stomach acidity and biliary salts; and to travel to the intestines without damage. L. acidophilus Rosell-52 will adhere to the cell wall lining of the intestines and inhibit intestinal pathogens, support immune cells, and provide a protective barrier against foreign microbes.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique probiotic yeast sold widely across Europe, especially in France and Germany. S. boulardii CNCM-I-1079 has undergone extensive scientific research documenting its safety, and ability to flush out pathogenic bacteria such as E. coliand Salmonella (responsible for 70% of Traveller's Diarrhoea) in order to maintain normal digestive health during travels.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 is a natural component of the intestinal friendly bacteria; the rhamnosus species is one of the most studied in the probiotic world. L. rhamnosusRosell-11 has been proven to resist bile and gastric acidity over pH 3 - therefore if taken at mealtimes (when pH is around 4), it will pass through the stomach without being damaged.L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 is able to bind strongly to the intestinal cells and helps you maintain a strong immune system.
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 colonises primarily in the large intestine or colon. Here it promotes the production of antibodies, supports the body against toxins and inhibits the development of undesirable bacteria by competitively excluding their attachment to the intestinal wall lining.
