Flora Max Pro Synbiotic - 120 vegecaps
FloraMax Pro Synbiotic is a high-strength 20 Billion (now 30+ billion!) cell formula with both PRE & PRO biotic action in a single once a day dosage.
Here’s how it works… Rather than use dilute amounts of lots of species… remember there are hundreds to choose from… instead, we want to jolt the prevalent or naturally dominant species into action with strong, repetitive, concentrated amounts of Lactobacillus Acidophilus DDS-1 and Bifidobacterium Lactis.
We use over TWENTY BILLION of these prevalent species per capsule... prevalent meaning the ones that are most commonly found in the intestines... to start a ‘vacuum’ effect in which the negative bacteria are crowded out leaving the beneficial species space to proliferate to normal healthy levels.
Why choose these two beneficial strains? There have been over 120 published, peer-reviewed studies on DDS-1 acidophilus and it has specific resistance to bile salts and stomach acids which could otherwise destroy beneficial flora before they reach their destination. DDS-1 also inhibits the growth of 23 toxin-producing organisms while assisting in the digestion of proteins and carbohydrates and importantly is very stable under normal storage conditions.
Bifidobacterium are gram-positive anaerobic organisms, which occupy the large intestine and assist in a range of functions including the symptomatic relief of medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

How To Help Regain Normal Gastrointestinal Health & Digestive Function After Antibiotics or Oral Contraceptives
You’ve just taken a course of antibiotics for a persistent hard to beat infection… you’ve noticed that you have mild digestive discomfort. Some meals you eat seem to take forever to digest and you often feel bloated, suffering from flatulence despite having a pretty good diet... If the symptoms persist, you will want to see your health practitioner, but it may simply be that your intestines are over-run with negative species… the wrong kind of bacteria!
If you have wondered why pharmacists recommend a probiotic therapy (acidophilus capsules) when filling a prescription for antibiotics, the answer is that a negative side effect of some antibiotic treatments is a kill-off of beneficial species in the intestines and a common method of replacing those flora destroyed is by taking a course of probiotics.
So what is a probiotic supplement? By definition it contains enough beneficial flora to help rebuild levels in the intestines to a self-sustaining balance… the healthy beneficial species proliferate and crowd out unwanted bacteria keeping the balance at normal manageable levels.
However, keep in mind that the average adult has literally TRILLIONS of bacteria with an estimated 300 to 500 species… bacteria make up much of the material in the colon and 60% of the mass of faeces, plus the intestines are around 8 metres long with an internal area somewhere around the size of a tennis court, so you can see there’s a lot of bacteria over a large area to get in balance!
To achieve this, many probiotic supplements attempt to target lots of species… they spread the beneficial bacteria around thinly, intending to influence a wide range of species with low amounts, but there is a better way! First there’s the species. Instead of using small amounts of many types, lets go with massive amounts of one of the big guns… Lactobacillus DDS-1 strain.
This specific DDS-1 strain has over 100 published, peer-reviewed studies and has shown specific resistance to bile salts and stomach acids which could otherwise destroy beneficial flora in the stomach acids before they reach their destination. DDS-1 produces the enzyme lactase, which helps to alleviate lactose intolerance and also inhibits the growth of 23 toxin-producing organisms while assisting in the digestion of proteins and carbohydrates. And importantly, DDS-1 is very stable under normal ambient storage conditions.
You’ll need a formula with something like 20 BILLION cells… yes, that is a lot but we’re looking quick results aren’t we? Now, lets bring in a secret weapon, a PRE biotic. Oligofructose (FOS) is a natural fibre digested exclusively by Bifidobacterium… using this makes the formula SYN biotic, both PRE & PRO biotic… it sends the beneficial bacteria to work with a cut lunch, feeding and encouraging the endogenous Bifidobacterium already in your intestines to flourish and be healthy.
Each vegetable capsule contains beneficial organisms:
Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1) - 15 Billion
Bifidobacterium lactis - 5.04 Billion
Oligofructose (FOS) - 200mg
Directions for use: Take one capsule daily before food or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Always read the label. For the relief of the symptoms of mild digestive discomfort. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner.
