THERALAC® represents several breakthroughs in probiotic technology, first introduced in 2002, these technological advances continue to make THERALAC® a leading probiotic. What are these advances? They can be summarized by the letters S.D.S. for STRENGTH, DELIVERY and STIMULATION. For a probiotic to work efficiently within your gastrointestinal tract, restoring regularity and comfort fast, it must compete with and limit the negative effects of billions of undesirable intestinal microbes; this requires our S.D.S. technology.
- STRENGTH- THERALAC® capsules are guaranteed to contain a minimum of 30 billion CFU (colony forming units) of live probiotic microorganisms through expiration. THERALAC® is formulated at > 40 billion CFU/capsule. Furthermore, the probiotic microorganisms in THERALAC®, five Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains, are STICKY and able to colonize human HT-29 and Caco-2 cells in vitro giving them a competitive advantage over less sticky microorganisms.
- DELIVERY- This means THERALAC® probiotics survive transit through the harsh acidity of the stomach and arrive alive in the intestinal tract. THERALAC’s ACID PROOF™ technology utilizes sodium alginate from seaweed in a unique formulation that assures survival at pH 1.6 for 90 minutes, the most severe stomach acid conditions normally experienced. Other probiotics that claim acid resistance are tested at pH 2.5 – 3.0 or >10 times less acidic than pH 1.6 – not a fair test. THERALAC’s ACID PROOF® technology is protected by US Patents 7,122,370 and 7,229,818. This technology goes beyond resisting stomach acid and involves keeping the probiotic cells together in a viscous alginate-gel moving in group-force, not as separate individual cells like other probiotics, deep into the intestinal tract while retaining key formula ingredients, LactoStim® and Sodium Alginate in close proximity.
- STIMULATION- It’s not good enough to simply deliver probiotic cells alive and deep into the intestinal tract, they must be awakened with a special prebiotic nutrient in order to begin growth and multiplication. The special nutrient is called LactoStim® -- a combination of two natural substances, sunflower lecithin and oleic acid: four patents are pending on LactoStim® technology! Unlike other prebiotics that utilize soluble fibers such as FOS and Inulin and require 3 – 8 grams per dose to be effective, LactoStim® is effective in milligram (mg) quantities allowing it to fit, along with the probiotics, in a single capsule! Only THERALAC® contains LactoStim®. Finally, another aspect of stimulation involves Sodium Alginate which plays a key role in the acid-proof delivery but also doubles as food for the probiotics.
