Probiotics are live microorganisms that exert many beneficial health effects. They provide essential functions in the body whose populations can be changed by microbial interactions, stress, host secretions and immune responses. Probiotic Eleven contains 11 strains of important, gut-beneficial organisms for promotion of gut health and immune functions. This product is recommended to populate the intestinal tract with a variety of beneficial microorganisms that may be removed in colon cleansing or after times of intestinal stress. NSP ADVANTAGEProbiotic Eleven is formulated with a blend of short- and long-chain fructooligo-saccharides (FOS), which are non-digestible foodstuffs (fiber and other oligosaccharides) that serve as food for the probiotics in the colon. Over 200 clinical studies report health benefits of short-chain FOS, such as improved mineral absorption and bone health, improved immunity and relief of occasional bloating, gas, sour stomach and constipation. Recommended for use following colon cleansing. INGREDIENTSBifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus salivarius, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei and FOS (short- and longchain).
• Helps relieve ocasional gastrointestinal distress, such as diarrhea.

HOW IT WORKS
Multiple mechanisms of action are believed to be responsible for the benefits of supplemental probiotics. Some are believed to secrete beneficial substances. Some have the ability to adhere to the intestinal walls, preventing attachment and residence of less-friendly microorganisms. Immune benefits are partially attributed to stimulation of Immunoglobulin A. Benevolent microbes also participate in the decomposition of fecal matter, contributing to nutrient absorption and producing vitamins B, D and K as metabolic byproducts.
L. plantarum, L. salivarius, S. thermophilus and L. acidophilus have demonstrated the ability to break down lactose, the milk sugar responsible for lactose-intolerance. L. salivarius has demonstrated marked digestive support for the stomach. L. bulgaricus and L. plantarum are associated with immune activities.
Acidophilus: a strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus, a symbiotic homo-fermentative, lactic acid-producing microorganism. Acidophilus helps regulate the intestinal tract. Since many people are vegetarian or cannot tolerate dairy products,our acidophilus is dairy-free.
Each capsule contains a minimum of 100 million organisms, freeze-dried to maintain viability. Each capsule is also coated with a “modified release” coating so that the contents will be released in the intestinal tract and not in the stomach. Best if stored in a freezer or refrigerator.
Bifidophilus Flora Force®: The healthy human intestinal tract contains billions of intestinal flora that live in a delicate balance with each other and in symbiosis with us. We provide them with a home, and in turn they break down our food into easily absorbed nutrients. They also aid digestion in a variety of ways and promote immunity. Factors such as stress, environmental conditions or the use of certain substances can affect their vitality. Bifidophilus Flora Force provides billions of beneficial intestinal microorganisms that offer a whole range of health benefits. This product contains Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum plus two additional strains, L. casei and L. rhamnosus for a more complete probiotic formula and added support for the immune system. NSP added fructo-oligosaccharides (short- and long-chain), which support the growth of these beneficial organisms to ensure the potency of this product. Each capsule provides a good balance of 4 billion beneficial microorganisms. This product is recommended for daily use to help maintain a healthy balance of friendly flora in the intestinal tract and to support the immune system. Refrigerate or freeze to maintain freshness. Each capsule is coated with a “modified release” coating so that the contents will be released in the intestinal tract.
