Hi-Po Dophilus

Size:60 capsule

Maxi Health Research Hi-Po Dophilus High Potency Acidophilus Formula replenishes the system with healthy bacteria depleted by anti-biotic use and/or diarrhea. Maxi Health Research Hi-Po Dophilus High Potency Acidophilus Formula supports healthy digestion, promotes normal elimination, and cleanses the intestinal tract. Maxi Health Research introduces their most powerful acidophilus formula, Maxi Health Research Hi-Po Dophilus High Potency Acidophilus Formula capsules. Maxi Health Research Hi-Po Dophilus High Potency Acidophilus Formula contains a high potency of 10 billion active organisms from the vital strain Lactobacillus acidophilus and 350 million of Lactobacillus sporogenes from the brand Lactospore.

Probiotics, is the general term for the many different strains of healthy bacteria, including the species known as Lactobacilli, so named because they produce lactic acid in the bowel by fermenting carbohydrates. This lactic acid production is profoundly important for keeping the intestines balanced & healthy. Probiotics, also known as friendly bacteria are beneficial organisms that help improve the environment of the intestinal tract. Trillions of microorganisms live inside our body and are necessary for health and vitality. The lower bowel is a campground for roughly 100 trillion bacteria, single- celled plant organisms that can be seen only through a microscope. Unfortunately, some of these bacteria classified as unfriendly or bad bacteria, can lead to many illnesses and health conditions, including diarrhea, constipation, acid indigestion and bacterial (yeast/fungal) infections. Fortunately, balanced intestinal flora can create and promote a healthy environment in the intestinal tract. This vital balance can be obtained through a well balanced diet and the consumption of probiotics.

One of the most vital probiotics to support a healthy intestinal flora is Lactobacillus acidophilus. Acidophilus is the primary friendly bacteria found in the intestinal tract. They help to protect the body from an invasion of candida and other germs that invade and live in the body. Lactobacillus acidophilus helps by adhering to the intestinal wall and preventing disease- causing bacteria from taking hold. They also help by eating all the food reserves and starving out the bad bacteria and allowing them to pass through without taking up residence. Acidophilus is also responsible for producing lactic acids, which lower the natural pH in the intestines, which discourages the growth of the other bacteria which flourish in a more acidic environment. They also aid in the digestion of proteins, which is essential for the production of essential enzymes made in the body. Lactobacillus acidophilus also helps manufacture B vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B12 and folic acid. Another particular species of lactobacilli, called Lactobacillus sporogenes, may prove to be one of the most practical forms for use in supplements. L. sporogenes a lactic- acid producing bacteria, is a spore- forming bacteria, safely enclosed within a spore coat that protects it from the environment, L. sporogenes is resistant to heat, bile, oxygen and digestive acids. Once L. sporogenes reaches the intestines, its spore coat dissolves, freeing the bacteria to multiply and churn out the beneficial lactic acid. Most individuals are lacking the necessary levels of lactobacillus, which contributes to digestive disorders such as gas, bloating, constipation, malabsorption of nutrients and heartburn, hence a good probiotic formula is crucial in maintaining a healthy intestinal flora.

Various factors can disrupt the intestinal bacterial balance, including:

  • Antibiotic use.
  • Traveling.
  • Physical & psychological strain

Are All Probiotics The Same?

Most bacterial products do not completely survive processing, storage and are not shelf stable as they require refrigeration. They are prone to lose their full potency from the time of production, through human consumption from the mouth to the gut by our own digestive juices and acid environment.

The key points for a probiotic to be beneficial:

  • Ability to survive passage through digestive tract.
  • Stable under normal gastric conditions.
  • Resistant to bile salts.
  • Room temperature stable.
  • Proliferates rapidly and produces abundant quantity of lactic acid, which suppresses the growth of pathogenic organisms faster.

Maxi Health Research Hi-Po Dophilus High Potency Acidophilus Formula capsules are carefully manufactured to protect the live bacteria from degradation and are enteric coated. Enteric coating needs an alkaline pH to dissolve. The stomach has an acidic environment and so the coating remains intact while the capsule is in the stomach. Once the pH reaches the basic or alkaline range in the small intestine, then the coating dissolves in that environment, enabling the capsule and its contents to dissolve. This is the same type of coating used on enteric-coated aspirin, to prevent irritation or damage to the stomach lining. Digestion Formulas Most health conscious people try to eat a sensible, well-balanced wholesome diet. Unfortunately, good health takes more than eating a healthy diet and supplementing it with nutritional supplements. You must properly digest your food and actually absorb the nutrients into your blood stream for them to be effective. There are numerous reasons why so many people have trouble properly digesting their food and absorbing its valuable health protecting nutrients. Stress, aging and illness all inhibit the production of vital gastric juices and enzymes.

Most people over the age of 40 simply do not produce sufficient hydrochloric acid in their stomach to properly digest their food. This can result in indigestion, allergies and nutritional deficiencies. Digestive enzymes called "Sparks of Life" play a major role in your ability to absorb the nutrients you ingest. Without sufficient digestive enzymes in the correct proportion, you simply cannot get the life giving nutrients you need into your blood stream. Digestive enzymes are found in food, but are extremely sensitive to heat and are eliminated even at low cooking temperatures. If your body is not producing sufficient quantities of digestive enzymes you must supplement your diet with them in order to maintain good health. Maxi Health Research has developed Digestion and Absorption Formulations to help you digest your food and absorb its vital nutrients. Special formulation processes are utilized in the production of these Digestion and Absorption Nutrient Formulations. These processes are used to insure that you properly digest your food, and that the extremely important enzymes you need to absorb are present during the time of digestion.

Maxi Health Research's Digestion and Absorption Nutrients Formulations provide you with the enzymes and specific nutrients you need to keep your digestive system healthy and functioning properly everyday.
