Prodegin™ is a high-CFU blend of 5 Lactobacillus species designed to promote gastrointestinal and oral health.† It is formulated as a chewable tablet. The convenience of a chewable tablet also makes this probiotic easy to use by those who have had bariatric surgery and others who prefer chewable tablets.
Benefits for Gastrointestinal Health
Lactobacilli possess many important features that make them valuable probiotics. These include production of enzymes to digest and metabolize proteins and carbohydrates, synthesis of B vitamins and vitamin K, enhancement of innate and acquired immunity, and modulation of inflammatory responses within the gut.† Lactobacillus species are also antagonistic to numerous undesirable microorganisms often responsible for occasional diarrhea and other intestinal disturbances.† Prodegin™ is specifically designed to promote gastrointestinal health and help sustain and reinforce a healthy balance of microbiota by providing 30 billion CFUs of Lactobacillus species in each serving.†
Benefits for Oral Health
Lactobacilli are common residents of the oral cavity and studies indicate they antagonize undesirable microorganisms and promote dental health.† The Lactobacillus organisms chosen for Prodegin™ have been shown to inhibit the growth of a variety of undesirable oral microorganisms.† Clinical studies show oral consumption of Lactobacillus organisms such as L. paracasei, L. rhamnosus, and L. salivarius can significantly support dental and periodontal health.†
Prodegin™ has a pleasant taste and is sweetened with xylitol, a sugar alcohol. Each high-CFU, hypoallergenic tablet provides 30 billion CFUs of freeze-dried Lactobacillus cultures.
