The probiotics are defined as live microbial additives, particularly beneficial for the human health.
Inclusion of probiotics in the human diet is considered the most promising concept for overcoming the influence of the negative health factors caused by the lifestyle of the modern man. The increase of the probiotic products consumption leads to qualitative improvement of the human health status and decreased use of pharmaceuticals.
Restores the microflora after radio- or chemotherapy and after treatment with antibiotics
Nowadays there are plenty of probiotic preparations available on the market in USA, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, France, etc., based on different microbiological compositions (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacteriae, etc.).
Probiotic preparations include mainly lactic acid bacteria of the genera Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus, but also yeasts (Saccharomyces boulardii) or other bacterial species (Bacillus coagulans, Escherichia coli Nissle 1917, etc.).
Prebiotics are a category of functional food, defined as non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon, and thus improve host health. Appropriate combinations of pre- and probiotics are called synbiotics.
Probiotic + Fibers
Probiotics are live microbial food ingredients that have a beneficial effect on human body by improving its gastro-intestinal micro flora balance:
Support and strengthen our body’s immune system.
Help suppress putrefactive processes in the intestine and maintain normal gastro-intestinal micro flora.
Supports peristalsis and intestine good functioning.
Promote correct digestion and absorption of food nutrients.
Help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
Reduce osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis risk.
Overcome skin problems and allergies.
Improve nutrition balance by providing necessary amino acids and natural vitamins.
Prevent constipation, bloating, diarrhoea& flatulence.
Assist weight reduction.
What are the Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are “food ingredients which stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the gastro-intestinal (GI) system”. Kendy uses inulin (fibers) as a prebiotic which can increase the volume of good bacteria by up to x10.
Our general level of health depends to a large extent upon the condition of the friendly bacteria in our GI system and their ability to control harmful bacteria and help us ingest nutrients from food.
When probiotics are combined with Fibers they have more powerful and beneficial effect on gastro-intestinal system than standard Probiotics.
What is Inulin and is it in all probiotic products?
No, few probiotics products contain Inulin. It is a natural Fiber, extracted from chicory roots. It is beneficial for the good bacteria in gastro-intestinal tract. Studies show that inulin can increase the absorption of calcium (an important nutrient especially for women and children) by 18%.
Aren’t all Probiotics bacteria the same?
No! Different Lactobacilli strains have different characteristics and very different survival
and reproductive capabilities when in the hostile environment of the human gastro‐intestinal system.
Contained in the product strains are Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus
thermophilus are registered in the National bank for microorganisms and cell cultures.
