PROBIOTIC HEALTH FOR INDIGESTION*
Natren® now offers Lactobacillus bulgaricus, LB-51, in a new, pleasant-tasting form: Natural Strawberry Chewable Wafers. Gastro-pH™ contains exclusively Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain, 1 billion cfu per 2 wafers. Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain is the natural microorganism found in selected Bulgarian style yogurt that helps the body digest food more efficiently. Helps to alleviate gas, bloating and upper GI problems.
Proper Digestion – A Key To Health
The Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain in Gastro-pH™ actually travels along with the food as it's being processed, to naturally aid digestion while deterring harmful bacteria.
It maximizes the body's ability to complete the digestion process and may discourage the use of intestinal stimulants and antacids.
,li>This beneficial bacteria may help maintain our natural electrolyte balance, particularly as we age and become less active.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus produces lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose in our digestive tracts, so it is helpful to those who are lactose intolerant.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus was named by Dr. Metchnikoff, after the long-lived healthy Bulgarians who consumed this bacteria in their daily diet of Bulgarian yogurt.
Gastro-pH™ is cultured with super strain LB-51 which, according to 30 years of Bulgarian research, is one of the most beneficial strains of the 450 known bulgaricus strains.
Nutritionally helps to deter yeast overgrowth (candida) from the large intestine up into the small intestine.
Helps to stimulate regularity.
Aids in lactose metabolism and enhances the digestion of milk products.
Encourages an acidic intestinal environment which strongly inhibits less desirable microorganisms.
Contributes to the growth and viability of the beneficial resident microorganisms (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium. bifidum, etc.) by supporting their growth and activity.
Helps the body digest complex carbohydrates and proteins
Bulgaricus is very proteolytic, therefore it can easily break down proteins.
Helps to increase the bio-availability of minerals, especially calcium. The absorption is doubly important in lactose-intolerant individuals who may also experience a deficiency of dietary calcium.
May also produce antimicrobial substances antagonistic to various bad bacteria.
Notes: How the bacteria are grown: Lactobacillus bulgaricus , LB-51 super strain when grown in a dairy base, breaks down complex milk proteins and produces lactase, an enzyme essential for avoiding lactose intolerance. This growth medium encourages the bacteria strain to produce optimal results.
Potency Guarantee: Two wafers contain a minimum of 1 billion cfu of viable bacteria through the printed expiration date when the storage conditions stated on the label are maintained.
Recommended Use: Chew two wafers, before or after meals or during periods of occasional indigestion.* May be taken on an empty stomach. Product removed from refrigerated bottle for daily use should be consumed within 24 hours for maximum potency.
