Bifidobacterium longum: colonises in the intestinal tract, it breaks down bile salts, helps to synthesize B-complex vitamins and stimulates the immune system.
Lactobacillus acidophilus: one of the most prominent micro-organisms found inthe small intestine. It produces lactic acid which inhibits yeast growth, as well as natural antibiotics which enhance immune functions.
Streptococcus thermophilus: a transient probiotic from dairy origin. Producing large quantities of lactic acid it limits the growth of unfriendly bacteria and helps in the prevention and treatment of diarrhoea.
