The gut microbiome is essential to normal health and well-being all over the body. Probiotic-3 is a unique synergistic probiotic formula that contains three bacterial species with specific health promoting attributes: Enterococcus faecium T-110, Clostridium butyricum TO-A, and Bacillus subtilis TO-A. While these three strains are newer to the North American market, they have been widely used in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia since the early 1960’s.
C. butyricum TO-A is a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract. It breaks down dietary fibre into short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs); butyrate, propionate and acetate. The benefits of these SCFAs include supporting a healthy inflammatory response, and protection against intestinal damage1 and immune support.2 E. faecium T-110 is a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract that works with C. butyricum to create a balanced microbiome. It produces lactic acid, which reduces the gastrointestinal pH, thus preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.3 It has also been shown to reduce the severity of acute diarrhea. B. subtilis TO-A is a prebiotic that supports the growth of E. faecium and C. butyricum, to increase their growth by 10 times.
Clinical studies have shown wide-ranging health benefits including improved immunity, reduced bloating, constipation and diarrhea, positive effects on cognition and mood disorders.
Probiotic-3’s unique symbiotic formula combines three human strains that have been clinically studied in more than 40 human studies. It is stable at room temperature and is highly resistant to bile and gastric acids. Additionally, this formula has 60 years of use in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia. Each strain was carefully chosen to ensure synergy and safety with the others.
