TotalFlora15 is our newest and strongest probiotic formula. It does an excellent job of recolonizing the intestinal tract with billions of friendly bacteria even in the presence of candida.
There are estimated to be one hundred trillion bacteria living inside the human intestine including 500 different species. These bacteria together weigh two to three pounds and could be considered your first organ of defense against disease.
Some of these bacteria are referred to as "good" but others provide little or no benefit. The ideal balance between them is 85% good and 15% "other". If the "others" numbers grow too large, you're not going to feel great. This is why it is so important to help the "good" numbers stay high.
This requires bacterial action of many types not just 1, 2 or even 3 or 4. These few strains on their own can not do enough. They simply get overwhelmed and gradually die out. TotalFlora15 brings together two of the most widely accepted groups of probiotics which are the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species. These are known to work together and maintain a balance of "good" bacteria within your digestive tract.
Also added to this combination is the Streptococcus Thermophilus a highly versatile fast acting strain of friendly bacteria that also happens to act as a free radical scavenger. This additional strain works hand in hand with the 10 strains of Lactobacillus and four from the Bifidobacterium family to kick start a good bacteria bloom that promotes healthy intestinal function and works with your immune system to inhibit candida overgrowth.
Each capsule also contains a small supply of Ascorbic Acid which assists in several ways. First, it keeps the bacteria viable in the bottle by maintaining the best pH. Once it is exposed in the intestine, this Ascorbic Acid helps modify the growing environment making it more suitable for the bloom of good bacteria from the capsule.
