Natural Probiotic Combination for Daily Use:
The gastrointestinal tract contains approximately 100,000 billion viable bacteria, which means that bacteria in the human colon out number the total amount of cells in the human body by 10-fold! As such, colonic bacteria can be considered another organ of the body. Probiotics are defined as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host. Studies have demonstrated considerable health benefits with the use of Lactobacillus and bifidobacteria probiotics. Some key benefits include support for gastrointestinal health including supporting the intestinal mucosal barrier and lactose utilisation, also for immune support and general health and well being.
New improved formula.
Clinicians MultiFlora now contains improved strains of probiotics, two of the most studied and scientifically researched probiotics in the world (Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12). When combined, these strains have demonstrated synergistic effects. The new formula is also packaged in a convenient blister pack format.
New improved Clinicians MultiFlora supports healthy gastrointestinal function, offers immune support and is an ideal everyday supplement for general health and well being.
Doesn’t require refrigeration.
After years of production advancements and strain optimisation, the developer of the probiotic strains in Clinicians MultiFlora (Chr Hansen) has produced a product that delivers enhanced stability at room temperature. The specialised handling, manufacturing and new blister pack format, gives Clinicians MultiFlora a two year shelf life at room temperature (20-25°C).
Survives stomach and bile acids.
We use a proprietary encapsulation technology and a polysaccharide mix to ensure survival of the live bacteria in Clinicians MultiFlora. This means the live bacteria are protected from the harsh acidic environment of the stomach, from bile acids and the significantly higher pH of the duodenum. The probiotics can then arrive at their destination in the lower small intestine and bowel unharmed, where they are most effective.
Packaging Clinicians MultiFlora in vegetable capsules further enhances the stability of the probiotics and makes this product suitable for vegetarians.
Ideal for infants, children and adults.
Studies have verified the tolerability and benefits of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12 in all age groups.7,8,9 For young children, capsules should be opened and the contents mixed with milk or water.
High quality product.
The manufacturing process and quality control for Clinicians MultiFlora is compliant to meet GMP standards, producing a high quality product.
Probiotic micro-organisms, also referred to as “probiotic flora” are a group of beneficial bacteria that colonise our digestive tract. The body has evolved a symbiotic relationship with these bacteria. This means that our digestive tract provides a safe terrain and nutrients for their growth while they assist us in various digestive processes and in the manufacture of B group vitamins. Without these friendly bacteria, harmful bacteria may get the opportunity to grow and cause problems. An imbalance of friendly bacteria can occur for many reasons such as an upset stomach, food poisoning, diarrhoea, antibiotic treatment, poor dietary practise, aging and stress. An imbalance of good flora is also known as “dysbiosis”. If dysbiosis goes on for long enough, it could lead to more serious problems like “leaky gut syndrome” or increased intestinal permeability. Several chronic diseases are related to this such as rheumatoid arthritis and allergies. An imbalance of intestinal flora can also result in chronic yeast overgrowth in the digestive and genital tracts. Other symptoms of chronic dysbiosis include indigestion, heartburn, thrush, bad breath and flatulence. Dysbiosis may also be associated with a decrease in digestive enzyme production, which may produce similar symptoms. Restoring a good probiotic flora balance can be accomplished in several ways: Diet: Non-heat treated yogurt is a good source of probiotic flora. Ideally the yogurt should contain 100 000 viable cells per gram. Liver Detoxification and Bowel Cleanse: This is recommended for individuals who have experienced symptoms of chronic dysbiosis. Following a detox and bowel cleanse, a high potency probiotic flora replacement like Clinicians MultiFlora is recommended. Clinicians MultiFlora is a rapid and effective way to replace beneficial probiotic flora. It contains two of the most studied and scientifically researched probiotics in the world which are stomach and bile acid resistant.
Total probiotic bacteria (at the time of manufacture) No less than 7 billion CFU Consisting of: Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG 3.5 billion CFU, Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12 3.5 billion CFU
CFU = Colony Forming Units
Capsules also contain: maltodextrin, microcrystalline cellulose, silicon dioxide and magnesium stearate. May contain traces of milk products.
Store below 25°C.
Keep out of reach of children
Infants 1 month to 3 years: Consult your health professional before administering to this age group. Premature neonatesand infants 1 month to 3 years of age have tolerated 4.8 billion CFU/day of Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12 and at least 10 billion CFU/day of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG.10, 17,18,19 Our recommended dose would therefore be to take half the contents of one capsule and mix with breast milk, infant formula, milk or water and drink once daily.
Precautions and Contraindications:
Consult your physician before use with the following treatments and/or conditions: radiation therapy, recent oral or gastrointestinal surgery (particularly short bowel loop) and those who are immuno-suppressed (e.g. HIV). Under such circumstances, there is increased susceptibility of bacterial translocation and subsequent infections such as liver abscess, endocarditis and septicemia.
Clinicians MultiFlora is cultured on a skim milk base and may contain traces of lactose in the finished product. Studies on Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12 indicate that this strain exhibits lactase activity and can help assist with lactose digestion. This product should therefore be suitable for lactose intolerant individuals. Individuals with severe IgE mediated dairy allergies should avoid taking Clinicians MultiFlora or consult their health professional first.
None known. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria have been used for decades and are well tolerated.
Pregnancy and Breast Feeding:
Both Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12 are suitable for use during pregnancy and breast feeding. Recent research has shown that taking these specific probiotics during pregnancy in conjunction with nutritional counselling, can support healthy blood sugar balance. Dietary supplements are additional to, and not a replacement for a balanced diet. Always read the label. Use as directed. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Infants, pregnant or lactating women should consult their health professional before taking supplements. If symptoms persist, see your health professional. Store in a cool, dry place out of reach of young children.
