LACTOBACILLUS ACIDOPHILUS PBS066
ANTIMICROBIAL ⎪ PREVENTS ⎪ PROTECTS
The Lactobacillus acidophilus strain is a probiotic strain naturally present in the human intestine. It is recognised for its key role in maintaining optimal intestinal health. This probiotic strain mainly colonises the small intestine, where it helps to balance the intestinal flora by preventing the excessive proliferation of certain harmful bacteria. It is also one of the most studied strains for restoring or maintaining a healthy vaginal balance: 250 scientific studies have been published on its probiotic potential in less than 3 years. To reduce infections of the gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract, L.acidophilus is capable of producing antimicrobial molecules such as lactacin B. This toxin is a bacteriocin, capable of killing or blocking pathogenic bacteria in the body such as Escherichia Coli or Gardnerella vaginalis, pathogens responsible for vaginosis and infections. (1)
L.acidophilus also has a great capacity to produce lactic acid, which helps maintain an acid pH in the vagina and inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria (2).
Present in [MY] Essentiels Intimate & Intestinal Flora, this strain, dosed at 2 billion CFU/g (Colony Forming Unit), helps to balance flora and combat intimate discomfort. (3)
- Probiotic involved in balancing the intimate and intestinal flora.
- Inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria.
- Reduces the risk of vaginal infections.
