Health Information

What is Primadophilus? Primadophilus is a probiotic supplement range providing unique age specific blends of different beneficial gut bacteria including Lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus rhamnosus, lactobacillus reuteri, bifidobacterium breve, bifidobacterium longum and Bifidobacterium infantis. Under normal conditions trillions of these beneficial bacteria are found in the human intestines. They help maintain good health by producing certain vitamins and digestive enzymes (including lactase for digesting milk products), assisting the gut immune system, controlling cholesterol absorption and preventing the infiltration and overgrowth of harmful micro-organisms in the intestine. Why take Primadophilus? Prescription drugs, especially antibiotics taken to kill off bacterial infections, aren't selective enough and also destroy the essential beneficial bacteria in the intestines. Long term antacid use, a diet high in refined sugars and low in fibre will also reduce their numbers. The first signs of the "die off" of beneficial bacteria can present as oral or vaginal thrush, a yeast over growth such as candida albicans, a persistent nappy rash, bloating and or chronic flatulence. Later, malabsorption of minerals and a lack of b vitamins might present themselves clinically with symptoms including anaemia, low energy, muscle spasms and a weakened immune system. Primadophilus - the patented enteric coated difference. Acidophilus and other beneficial bacteria live in the intestines rather than in the stomach. The patented enteric coating on Primadophilus capsules makes them unique and has been perfected over more than twelve years. They meet the standard as simulated in accordance with USP Method 2040 of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP). This means that the capsule has to withstand stomach acidity for over two hours so that it passes intact into the alkaline environment of the intestines. When it arrives in the intestine, the coating must dissolve in less than 45 minutes to allow these naturally occurring bacteria to start colonizing where they are required. Therefore only 1 capsule per day is generally needed, although more can be safely used. Hypoallergenic formula Primadophilus is manufactured to the highest standards and is free of common allergens such as wheat, soy, yeast, gluten and chemical preservatives. Primadophilus is specially processed to be at least 98% free of dairy products and contains a neutral base of potato starch. Is Primadophilus safe to take with antibiotics? Primadophilus is a safe and natural supplement that may be taken during and after antibiotic use. Probiotics will in No way decrease the effectiveness of antibiotics and may assist with preventing commonly associated side-effects, by rebalancing the ratio of good bacteria. Why Refrigerate?Because Primadophilus contains live active good bacteria that must be kept dormant until needed, these products must be refrigerated. Outside the intestine, in room temperature, all living probiotic bacteria slowly die, reducing their effectiveness over a period of several weeks.
