Lacto-5

LACTO - 5

 

What make LACTO-5 unique ?

 

Our beneficial bacteria formula is uniquely derived from locally cultured human species. The common species that inhabit specific areas of our gut are then selected and cultured. As we culture, we select species that are stronger and sturdier. By a unique gene technology, we make them resistant to acids and other elements in our diet like chilly and spices. The live bacteria are freeze dried.

 

Then they are formulated with a non diary creamer that will dilute the stomach acid and protect the bacteria as they become viable. We further add lactose as this is the food of the bacteria ( Hint : that is why they are called lactobacillus ). All in all, you will get 10 billion CFU of beneficial bacteria per capsule of 500mg.

 

What types of bacteria are there in the LACTO-5 ?

 

LACTO-5 is a premium beneficial bacteria formula that contains 5 locally cultured human Lactic Acid Bacteria ( LAB ) and Bifidobacterium ( BB ) species.

 

a) Lactobacillus Acidophilus TSS

L. acidophilus is one of the most important microorganisms found in the small intestines. It is know to implant itself on the intestinal wall, and in the lining of the wall of the vagina, cervix and urethra. It performs many critical functions including inhibiting pathogenic organism and preventing them from multiplying and colonising.

 

It is well documented that L.acidophilus produces natural antibiotics like lactocidin, acidophilin, etc which enhances resistances or immunity. L. acidphilus has known antimicrobial activity against staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, E.coli and candida albicans.

 

b) Lactobacillis Bulgaricus JG-5

Lactobacillus bulgaricus is considered a transient microorganism that does not implant in the intestinal tract, but still provides an important protective role. This organism is used extensively in the commercial fermentation of yoghurt. Production of lactic acid by the bacterium provides a favourable environment for the growth of other lactobacilli and bifidobacteria residing in the intestine. Studies indicate that certain strains of L. bulgaricus stimulate production of interferon and tumor necrosis factor, thus establishing a potential role in modulating the immune system.

 

c) Lactobacillus casei RJ-1

Lactobacillus casei can ferment carbohydrates to produce acetic and lactic acids. They have several health-promoting effects provided through the production of bacteriocins, compounds that inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the small intestine.

 

d) Bifidobacterium longum EP-10

Bifidobacterium longum are found abundantly in the large intestine. It plays a role in preventing the colonization of invading pathogenic bacteria by attaching to the intestinal wall and crowding out unfriendly bacteria and yeast. Along with other microorganisms, it produces lactic and acetic acids that lower the intestinal pH and further inhibit the undesirable bacteria. B.longum has, in clinical studies, been found to reduce the frequency of gastrointestinal disorders ( diarrhea, nausea, etc ) during antibiotic use.

 

e) Streptococcus Thermophilus AN-9

Streptococcus Thermophilus, in combination with L.bulgaricus, is used commercially to produce yogurt. This organisms is to be known to be efficient in breaking down lactose by producing the enzyme lactase.

 

Those who are lactose-intolerant may be greatly helped by supplementation with this particular strain. Cytokine production is stimulated in tissue cultured cells by this bacterium.
