For a healthy gut

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Digestive Health & You -

As two-thirds of the body’s im­mune sys­tem is man­aged in the gut, it may be im­por­tant to keep one’s pro­bi­otic lev­els high.

How to choose a good pro­bi­otics sup­ple­ment?

Many peo­ple be­lieve that the best pro­bi­otic sup­ple­ment is the one with the most bac­te­ria in it, which are mea­sured in colony-form­ing units (CFUs).

How­ever, re­search to date has shown that it is not the to­tal num­ber of bac­te­ria in a prod­uct that is im­por­tant, it is the num­ber of dif­fer­ent strains of bac­te­ria it in­cludes.

Be­cause the dif­fer­ent strains of pro­bi­otic bac­te­ria have slightly dif­fer­ent functions and are con­cen­trated in var­i­ous places along the di­ges­tive tract, pro­bi­otic sup­ple­ments that con­tain mul­ti­ple strains tend to be more ef­fec­tive over­all than prod­ucts con­tain­ing an ex­tremely high con­cen­tra­tion of just one or two strains.

How is Nutri­forte Lac­toghurt ben­e­fi­cial?

No two pro­bi­otics for­mu­lae pro­duce the same re­sults. The ben­e­fits ob­served clin­i­cally among pro­bi­otics vary ac­cord­ing to the man­ner in which those bac­te­ria are pre­pared and pro­tected, and ac­cord­ing to the strains used.

Nutri­forte Lac­toghurt con­tains FOS, which pro­vides a syn­er­gis­tic ef­fect to pro­mote healthy gut.

It uses a dual-coated tech­nol­ogy called Duo­lac to en­sure the bac­te­ria reach the
