Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 is a natural resident of the intestinal microflora. It has been through numerous in vitro tests which indicate its ability to reach the gut alive.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique live culture sold widely across all of Europe, especially in France and Germany. S. boulardii has undergone extensive scientific research confirming its safety.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 is a natural component of the intestinal-friendly bacteria, and the rhamnosus species is one of the most studied live cultures in the world. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 from OptiBac has been proven to resist bile and gastric acidity over pH 3 – therefore if taken at mealtimes (when pH is around 4), it will pass through the stomach without being damaged.
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 is a well-researched strain that has been shown to reach the gut alive.
