I often get asked, how are multiple strains of bacteria in a probiotic more beneficial?
Both Simply Biotic and Simply Biotic Plus contain 10 unique strains of bacteria to provide multiple health benefits. Each bacterial strain targets a specific part of the body as illustrated below.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus: Studies show beneficial effects to lower blood pressure and total cholesterol.
Bifidobacterium Lactis: Shown to improve digestive comfort in healthy people and useful in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Lactobacillus Casei: Has an anti-inflammatory role in the human intestine. Benefits shown in Crohn’s disease.
Lactobacillus plantarum: Useful in the treatment of first, second and even third-degree burns. Accelerated healing and decreased inflammation in skin wounds.
Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Lactobacillus Salivarius: Useful in targeting peridontopathic bacteria and prevent gingivitis.
Lactobacillus Paracasei: Study proved clinical improvement in dermatitis.
Bifidobacterium Breve: Leads to decrease oxalate content in urine. Lower oxalate concentrations are likely to lead to fewer kidney stones.
Bifidobacterium longum: Recent study shows decrease in brain (amygdala) inflammation and improves mood.
Streptococcus Thermophilus: Study in children with respiratory infections found that supplementation with streptococcus thermophilus reduced the load of toxins.
Hence, a probiotic with 10 strains of bacterial like Simply Biotic is much superior to the one with one strain of bacteria.
