Lactobacilli & Bifidobacteria
They are gram positive lactic acid producing bacteria that constitute a major part of the normal intestinal microflora. They play an important role in resistance to colonization against pathogenic bacteria. The lactic acid helps in reducing the pH in the intestine and thereby creates an environment, which is not favourable to the growth of pathogenic organisms.
Lactobacilli being the predominant organism in the normal bacterial flora of the gut are the most severely affected by antibiotic treatment. In the absence of Lactobacilli, antibiotic resistant pathogens increase in numbers and may flourish in the gut. They multiply rapidly, causing both systemic and oral disturbances. Lactobacilli check the growth of putrefying (decaying) microflora of the gut and control production of ammonia, toxic amines, phenols and hydrogen sulphide.
Lactobacilli increase the activity of useful enzymes e.g., B- galactosidase in the alleviation of Lactose Intolerance.
It eradicates Clostridium difficile in patients with relapsing colitis and has also been shown to potentiate intestinal immune response to rotavirus infection in children.
They are normal inhabitants of the human and animal colon. Newborns, especially those that are breast-fed, are colonized with bifidobacteria within days after birth. Bifidobacteria are gram-positive anaerobes.
One of the most important residents in the human gastrointestinal tract, B. longum keeps the digestive system running smoothly, blocks the growth of harmful bacteria, and boosts the immune system. The organism ferments sugars into lactic acid and has many health benefits for humans and is often the dominant bacterium found in humans. It is a Gram-positive, anaerobic, branched rod-shaped bacterium.
These are lactic acid producing aerobic gram positive cocci. They are mainly found in the upper and lower small intestine and produce lactase enzyme, which is helpful in digestion of lactose, a sugar found in milk. S. thermophilus has an important role as a probiotic, alleviating symptoms of lactose intolerance and other GI disorders.
Belongs to the yeast family. It is non-pathogenic and non-colonizing. It is considered transient yeast in the human intestines, which means that does not set up residence in the mucosal membrane of the intestinal tract like the lactobacillus and bifidobacteria. As it travels to the intestines, this yeast has the ability to aggressively displace species of pathogenic yeast and bacteria and at the same time it does not harm the normal intestinal flora. The mechanism of probiotic action is probably by production of acetic and lactic acid, which lower the intestinal pH and thereby inhibiting the growth of pathogenic yeast and bacteria. This also encourages a good environment for the intestinal resident bacteria.
Added Advantage of two Prebiotics
FOS – Ashort Chain molecule prebiotic and Inulin is a long chain molecule probiotic
The uniqueness of Diaflora Sachet is that this product has 2.5 billion cfu of probiotics. The recommended requirement in children is 5 billion cfu/day. So 2 sachets a day fulfills the dose requirement.
Zinc is recommended for control of diarrhea.
Fungal amylase is an enzyme which helps in digestion of carbohydrates.
- Prevention of antibiotic associated diarrhoea
- Persistent diarrhoea
- Prevention of infectious diarrhoea
- Lactose Intolerance
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
