What's inside Granular Theralac®?
Granular Theralac® is a medical strength, multi-strain, probiotic dietary supplement containing naturally occurring, beneficial bacteria guaranteed at 25 billion colony forming units (CFU)/serving through expiration, if kept refrigerated. The probiotic composition is presented in Table 1. Strains LA-1 and BL-04 have been used for many years in probiotic supplements, strains LR-32, LPC-37 and Bi-07 are new generation probiotics selected for effectiveness and compatibility.
Granular Theralac® contains two prebiotics that enhance its probiotic activity: LactoStim® (Sunflower Lecithin + Oleic Acid) and Sodium Alginate. LactoStim® is a nutrient utilized by probiotic bacteria for fast growth and reproduction (Protected by 5 U.S. Patents).
The probiotics in Granular Theralac® are protected from stomach acid by a gel matrix composed of food grade sodium alginate. The gel matrix forms in the stomach at low pH and dissolves in the small intestine at high pH allowing acid sensitive probiotics to reach the intestinal tract alive at high strength and activity. Studies show that greater than 99% of unprotected probiotics are killed by stomach acid. Granular Theralac® is protected by U.S. Patents 7,122,370 and 7,229,818.
The probiotic strains in Granular Theralac® are backed by scientific and clinical studies; their principal action is to increase the population of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract and correct any probiotic deficiency that may exist. Granular THERALAC’s probiotic strains adhere to the soft lining (wall) of the intestinal tract and promote a healthy surface. A healthy intestinal surface encourages optimum absorption of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, and supports overall health and wellness. When probiotics actively colonize intestinal surfaces it becomes difficult for undesirable bacteria to occupy the same space. This is referred to as competitive exclusion.
High potency probiotics such as Granular Theralac® are indicated for a number of functional conditions that may result from or cause a deficiency of probiotic bacteria in the intestinal tract. These may include the following:
- Occasional diarrhea
- Occasional constipation
- Re-population following antibiotic use
- Certain food allergies
- Weak immune response
- Poor nutrient absorption
- Various dysbiosis conditions
The most common response to taking Granular Theralac® is normalized elimination, firmer more predictable bowel movements. This is usually followed by increased energy and intestinal comfort.
