Maintaining the balance of gut microflora is important to overall health, and not just when you are on antibiotics.
Guard your Gut
When the balance between good and bad gut flora are disturbed by factors such as stress, poor diet, travel, illness, antibiotic use etc, an imbalance can result in various diseases including diarrhoea, bloating, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome or a weakened immune system.
entiro™ probiotic covers your entire gut, restoring, maintaining and balancing intestinal flora.
Lactobacillus plantarum adheres predominantly to the small intestine due to the prevailing acidic and aerobic environment. Enterococcus mundtii prefers the more alkaline & anaerobic conditions of the large intestine. This results in a complete lining of the gastrointestinal tract.
Both Lactobacillus plantarum and Enterococcus mundtii contain genes encoding adhesion proteins and can therefore facilitate stronger binding to the mucus and epithelial layers of the ENTIRE gut. Adhesion prevents cells from being eliminated by peristalsis. It also prevents pathogens from binding to adhesion sites by a process of competitive exclusion.
A rather unique property entiro™ exhibits is the continuous production of powerful antimicrobial peptides that kill intestinal pathogens. This is achieved through pore formation in the pathogen, causing cellular contents to leak out, effectively killing it.

“Yogurt is an effective probiotic”
A big myth. The minimum effective dose of probiotics required is 100 million colony forming units (CFU’s). Unless one consumes approximately 40 litres of yoghurt daily, most yoghurt products do not contain a sufficient amount of CFU’s to be effective.
“The more strains, the better”
Not necessarily. What’s important is not so much the number of different strains, but the number of viable colonies (CFU’s) in the probiotic formulation. In the gastrointestinal tract, the various strains will compete with each other for the limited number of available binding sites.
“Probiotics are for use with antibiotic therapy”
That’s about half right, as probiotics are not limited to acute use such as during antibiotic therapy. Probiotics are beneficial in a wide variety of conditions including irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disturbances, traveller’s diarrhoea and gynaecological health.
