1 g of the drug (2 capsules) contains 10X109 CFU / g of live lactic acid lyophilized bacteria: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis and fructooligosaccharides.
Mechanism of action
The lactic acid bacteria that make up the drug help maintain and restore the physiological balance of the normal intestinal flora. Bifidobacteria and lactobacilli produce lactic acid and acetic acid, thus creating unfavorable conditions for the multiplication and pathogenicity of pathogenic microbes; Participate in the process of digestion and synthesis of vitamins (B, K…), regulate electrolyte balance; Metabolism of proteins, phospholipids, bile and fatty acids, bilirubin, cholesterol. Fructooligosaccharides - natural polysaccharides are prebiotics - a breeding ground for eubiotics - for the multiplication, colonization and animal life of intestinal bacteria. Fructooligosaccharides do not break down under the influence of digestive acids and reach the lower part of the intestine unchanged.
