Each capsule contains 20 mg of active lactobacilli, as well as lactose, magnesium stearate, whey and vitamin C.

Pharmacodynamics

The main role in the pharmacodynamics of yogurt is played by the various types of lactobacilli contained in it, which must necessarily be present in the intestinal microflora of a healthy person. The necessary balance of useful and pathogenic bacteria in the body determines the correct processes of immunomodulation, disposal of toxic substances, prevents possible disorders in the digestive system, as well as failures in the synthesis of vitamins of group B, K1 and K2.

The protective activity of lactobacilli is aimed at controlling the growth of staphylococci, protozoa, as well as mycotic infection and Escherichia coli. They have the ability to influence the acid-base balance of the intestine, releasing lactic acid and lysozyme.

Useful bacteria prevent absorption in the intestine of toxic substances, potential allergens, etc.

Pharmacokinetics

Lactobacilli, contained in yogurt, in an unchanged form safely pass through the stomach, without being damaged by the acidic environment of gastric juice. Scientific studies have established the fact that the retention of useful microflora in a solution of hydrochloric acid for 3 hours did not affect the viability of bacteria. The addition of bile solution also did not affect their activity in any way. Therefore, we can confidently say that the lactobacillus needed by the body reaches the intestine in an absolutely functional state.

The ability of useful microflora to cultivate is maintained by the presence of streptococcal bacteria.
