Nowadays, probiotics* are becoming increasingly important for our health and wellbeing. Yet 25 years ago, Anita Frauwallner developed the first multispecies probiotic and set a milestone for intestinal health. A personal stroke of fate kindled Mag. Anita Frauwallner’s interest in intestinal bacteria and their importance for our general health. Find out now why OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 has been the best seller at Institut AllergoSan for many years!
1. Taking care of your intestines for 25 years
The foresight and bravery of Mag. Anita Frauwallner defines the first multispecies probiotic: OMNi-BiOTiC® 6. 25 years ago, she started with her research and developed this revolutionary probiotic that has amazed millions of happy customers.
Probiotics are an excellent way to ingest helpful bacteria that are also usually found within the human intestines. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 was the first probiotic, after years of research, to successfully combine various bacterial strains that complemented and supported the efficacy of one another. They were put together in teams – just like the hundreds of other bacterial species that are naturally found within our intestines.
Our intestinal bacteria perform vital functions within our bodies. These include the formation of the intestinal barrier against foreign germs, the removal of harmful substances and toxins, and the intake and production of vital materials. Various decisive factors can also expel bacteria from the intestines (unhealthy diet, stress and drugs) – which leads to an imbalance within the intestines, a.k.a. dysbiosis.
As a result, foreign germs can propagate more easily, harmful substances and toxins aren’t removed properly, and nutrients aren’t absorbed optimally. The intestines become slow and sluggish, and eventually, certain foods aren’t tolerated anymore. This is why the intake of highly active intestinal bacteria is so important!
2. One woman, one idea – the story behind OMNi-BiOTiC® 6
When Mag. Anita Frauwallners’ husband passed away roughly 30 years ago from colorectal cancer, she started focusing on the intestines and their bacteria. Back then, research concerning the intestinal microbiome, also known as the intestinal flora (including the entirety of helpful and important bacteria in our intestines), was still in its infancy.
“I was mocked by many of my peers”, recalls Mag. Frauwallner, but I was certain that the intestinal flora was pivotal for our health and that high-quality probiotics would play a huge role. And now it has been proven in thousands of different studies.” Mag. Anita Frauwallner was driven by the motivation to strengthen the foundation of our health with the tools that mother nature had given us – prophylactically before diseases could develop. Over the last 25 years, many other high-quality probiotics were developed under the brand OMNi-BiOTiC®. All of which are tailor-made for special needs and whose positive effects have been clearly confirmed by scientific studies. “Knowing that the quality of our products has improved the quality of life of so many people continues to motivate me and my entire team every day”, admits Mag. Frauwallner.
Today, the Institute Allergosan is one of the leading centres worldwide in the field of microbiome research. Mag. Anita Frauwallner is an internationally recognised expert and a sought-after lecturer when it comes to “intestinal health”. The OMNi-BiOTiC® brand is also the number 1 product in the Austrian and German probiotic market.**
3. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 – the allrounder for your intestines!
Quadrillions of bacteria are responsible for utilizing vital substances and removing toxins in healthy and functional intestines. However, stress, fast food and drugs often decimate these important helpers – which is why the intestines need a kickstart.
Who can take OMNi-BiOTiC® 6? The whole family!
OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 remains one of the most well-known and beloved products from the OMNi-BiOTiC® quality brand. This allrounder can improve the wellbeing of anyone and is, therefore, suitable for every age group, from infants to grandparents. Especially when our immune system takes a lot of strain, OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 should be taken every day. Since, as we know, the intestines and immune system are closely connected. On the one hand, our intestinal bacteria create an important protective barrier that prevents foreign germs and substances from entering our bloodstream. Furthermore, roughly 80% of our immune cells can be found in the intestines. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 can also be taken during pregnancy and is approved for babies older than 1. Children between the age of 1 and 3 get half the normal dose and from 3 years onwards, the normal adult dose can be used.
How do I take OMNi-BiOTiC® 6? Just drink it!
Mix 1 portion of OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 in roughly 1/8 l of water 1-2 times a day. Wait at least 1 minute for the dry-frozen bacteria to activate, mix once more and enjoy! We recommend consumption on an empty stomach. If you take OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 twice a day, we recommend taking it before breakfast and before dinner. This probiotic can also be combined with other probiotics. Just take one in the morning, and the other in the evening.
Good news for anyone who suffers from allergies: Our products are free from animal proteins, gluten, yeast and lactose!
The intestinal allrounder OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 is free from animal proteins, gluten, yeast and lactose. That is why it’s perfect for people allergic to milk, children and pregnant or breastfeeding women. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 is made of cornstarch, maltodextrin, fructooligosaccharides (FOS), inulin, polydextrose, potassium chloride, bacterial strains, rice protein, magnesium sulphate, enzymes (amylase), and manganese sulphate.
OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 is also ideal for anyone who suffers from fructose intolerance. Just increase the activation time by at least 30 minutes. In this time, the bacteria metabolise all of the fructooligosaccharides. Ultimately, no fructose reaches the intestines, and you can drink OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 without any worries.
4. 6 highly active main bacterial strains for optimal colonisation
The multispecies probiotic OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 contains so-called “main bacterial strains” that are found in the intestines of every human. These bacteria not only inhabit the entire length of the intestines, but they also pass on their special abilities to the other bacteria via horizontal gene transfer when needed. The important and highly active main bacterial strains in OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 that inhabit the intestines from top to bottom are all included in your daily dose.
Just one gram of OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 contains 6 human bacterial strains with a minimum bacterial count of 1 billion:
- Bifidobacterium animalis W53
- Lactobacillus acidophilus W55
- Lactobacillus salivarius W57
- Enterococcus faecium W54
- Lactococcus lactis W58
- Lactobacillus casei W56
5. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 maintains the highest quality standards
Institut AllergoSan is Austria’s leading centre of excellence in the field of microbiome research and maintains very strict quality criteria when manufacturing its products. The products at the Institute AllergoSan are made according to the quality criteria of medical pro- and synbiotics by the WHO, WGO, FDA and OePROM.
Especially in the field of microbiome research – i.e. the analysis of all microorganisms that live on and in humans – has the Institue AllergoSan made an internationally recognised name for itself. The countless research projects in this area have lead to a massive exchange of information between employees at the institute and research facilities and universities across the globe.
Institut AllergoSan displayed its expertise with four studies at one of the biggest Austrian scientific projects, the CBmed. The goal of this project is to find biomarkers for various diseases. The Institute AllergoSan participates with its synbiotics and hopes to make a significant scientific contribution in the fields of diabetes and obesity, the development of sepsis, the treatment of NASH (Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis), as well as diseases that affect the brain.
Product manufacturing is based on the highest pharmaceutical standards (GMP – quality control) and continuously incorporates the newest scientific advances in its product development. Formulas that are developed under holistic physiological and medical aspects, often differ in their uniqueness. Besides the internationally recognised Know-How, the importance of bioavailability, peak activity, and reproductivity in the human intestines, the institute also puts an emphasis on packaging and product transport. This is because the stability of the microorganisms has to be guaranteed even at high temperatures. Probiotics from the OMNi-BiOTiC® brand are purposely packaged in sachets or glass vials to ensure an ideal and humidity stable environment. This method of packaging not only allows these bacterial helpers to perfectly rehydrate outside the body but also activates them with a special matrix. This gives the bacteria the best possible hardiness on their journey to the intestines.
The bacterial strains within OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 have been genetically sequenced, tested according to the highest safety standards, are free of antibiotic resistance and have an internationally recognised registration. Furthermore, these bacterial strains were identified and categorised according to the highest technological standards by the independent organisation “NIZO Food Research” in Amsterdam.
Additionally, all of the bacterial strains that are used in OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 are safeguarded according to the very highest safety standards in a “safe deposit” at the DSMZ (German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures). Here, they are regularly studied to make sure that they have no genetic mutations.
6. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 can help get your sluggish or imbalanced gut back on track!
Our intestinal bacteria carry out all kinds of important jobs in our bodies. They help with the formation of an intestinal barrier to fight against germs, they assist with the removal of toxins, and help our bodies to ingest and produce vital substances. However, good bacteria can be driven out from the intestine (among other things, by an unhealthy diet, stress, or even medication) – and a dysbiosis, an “imbalance” in the gut develops as a result.
The consequence is that foreign germs can multiply more easily, toxins are no longer disposed of, the intestines become sluggish, nutrients are not absorbed as well as they should be, and certain foods may even no longer tolerated. In such cases, supplementing highly-active intestinal bacteria can help get our guts back on track.
