SymBiotics with FOS
Nine distinct strains of symbiotic intestinal bacteria, in a matrix of FOS (fructooligosaccharides) which facilitates their implantation, and Vitamin C as preservative. The strains are Bifidobacterium longum, B. breve, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. rhamnosus A, L. rhamnosus B (bifidus), L. bulgaricus, L. casei, and L. sporogenes.
This product puts the probiotics all together! Some suppliers claim that the probiotic strains can only work if given one at a time, and that certain single strains have near magical properties. Yet the intestinal micro-ecosystem typically carries up to 400 strains of bacteria.
From the point of view of intestinal health, a product that provides bacteria for the different probiotic ""niches"" makes a lot more sense.
The nine strains in SymBiotics include Lactobacillus acidophilus; L. rhamnosus A and L. rhamnosus B (both more versatile and hardier than L. acidophilus); L. bulgaricus and L. casei (major contributors to fermented foods); and L. sporogenes (Bacillus coagulans), a particularly hardy and antibiotic resistant probiotic strain. Bifidobacterium longum and B. breve, two of the hardier bifidobacteria, are also present in high potency, as is Streptococcus thermophilus.
