The importance of the gastrointestinal microflora in the normal functioning of the human gastrointestinal tract is well recognized. Several human studies demonstrate that patients with an inflamed gut or bowel problems may have decreased luminal concentrations of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria compared with normal individuals.
Such patients have distinct nutritional requirements and may benefit from consuming high levels of probiotic bacteria so as to restore the appropriate quantity and balance of beneficial microflora in their gastrointestinal tract and this cannot be achieved simply by modification of the normal diet.
Probiotics have generally been associated with a long history of safe use. In fact, many probiotic species are integral to the production of fermented foods and have been consumed safely as part of these foods for millenia. Furthermore, many bifidobacteria and lactobacilli species are normal, non-pathogenic inhabitants of the human gastrointestinal tract, oral cavity, skin and vagina. Each strain of probiotic bacteria present in Vivomixx is non-pathogenic and non-toxigenic.
