Lactobacteria Food III with new formulation and improved taste is our most recent significant breakthrough for maintaining a healthy population of beneficial lactobacteria in the intestinal tract. Lactobacteria Food III feeds the lactobacteria already present in one's body (prebiotic activity), namely those already implanted and colonizing the walls of the intestines. As these grow and multiply, their offspring colonizes the intestinal walls as well. In this way a healthy colonization is achieved in a few days or weeks without the need to be implanted. It now contains Inulin # A "Prebiotic" soluble dietary fiber that aids, enhances and feeds the lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, the probiotic intestinal microflora. # Produces short chain fatty acids which: Inhibit the growth of disease causing bacteria. It are used by the liver for energy production. Improves fat metabolism that helps lower LDL cholesterol levels and confer additional cardio-protection. # Increases the systemic absorption of calcium and magnesium. # Recognized by the USFDA as a food ingredient (not an additive) and regarded as safe for human consumption. This new formulation yields a manifold increase of lactobacteria-enhancing activity over earlier products, while providing improved taste and multiple other proven healthful benefits. Our intestinal cleansing products have some of this same prebiotic activity but should not be taken continuously since homeostasis (the body becomes used to the products and they loose their effectiveness) will occur. Lactobacteria Food III, however, has no such effect and is thus ideally suited as a maintenance product to be taken between rounds of using the Holistic Horizons intestinal cleansing products. You may now promote an abundant colonization of lactobacteria year round! This product is a blend of premium quality powdered herbs taken one to three times daily with liquid at mealtime. It is quite gentle and effective. (2+ bottles required per month) Suggested Use: Stir dose into a full glass (8 ounces) of liquid and drink immediately. Follow promptly with a second glass of liquid. Product clashes with the taste of most citrus juices but has acceptable taste when taken with apple, tomato, or V-8 juices. (Apples are often treated with a chemical that may upset the stomach; use organic apple juice to avoid this.) Dosage: Adults and children 12 years of age and older: Take 1 to 3 level teaspoons two to four times per day. Do not exceed 12 teaspoons per day. Children 6 to under 12 years of age: take 1 level teaspoon two to six times per day. Do not exceed 6 teaspoons per day. Children under 6 years of age: Do not use, consult a physician.
