Description
DUOLAC Care is a Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) supplement for the whole family which helps maintain healthy gastrointestinal bacteria population and healthy bowel function. The LAB are protected by a unique patented dual coating technology developed to maximize their survival rate 100 times higher than uncoated LAB. The dual coating technology protects the LAB from mechanical pressure during manufacturing, transportation, heat and moisture. Its unique pH-dependent release mechanism ensures survivability of LAB against gastric acid and bile salts, while releasing them in the intestine to ensure their effective colonization and proliferation.
DUOLAC Care contains 6 different lactic acid bacteria strains (5x10a CFU): (See table.)
