A probiotic with proven efficacy – Bifidobacterium lactis HN019
The beneficial effects of probiotics either involve reducing risk factors for a certain disease or improving some of the body’s natural functions, thereby helping to maintain the health of your body.
However, the beneficial effect of probiotics relies on live bacteria reaching and colonising the small intestine. As little as 0.1% of un-encapsulated probiotic bacteria may reach the intestine alive due to:
Loss of viability during storage
Cell death due to heat treatment in processing
Acid conditions in the stomach
