Synbiotic Formula for Optimal Intestinal Health*

- Provides 10 billion CFU per day from two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis
- Includes 600 mg of fructooligosaccharides per serving
HLC High Potency Powder is a unique combination of four strains of proprietary, human-sourced probiotics and fructooligosaccharides (FOS) that helps to promote gastrointestinal health in adults. In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 22 adults, daily supplementation with a probiotic containing Lactobacillus acidophilus supported a healthy microflora balance. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, the most commonly used probiotics, help colonize the intestines and mediate the permeability of epithelial cells. After they are fermented by microbes in the colon, prebiotics - including FOS - support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the colon and further maintain the barrier function of intestinal epithelial cells by increasing mucin levels. Their fermentation can result in the production of short chain fatty acids, including butyrate, the preferred energy source of colon cells.*
