A supplement for this, the next for that, and then before going to bed another… it’s all getting a bit complicated, isn’t it? Wouldn’t it be nice to take one supplement and have all bases covered? From digestive health, to supporting your immune system with allergies and even your skin, probiotics are the fuel to drive your gut and therefore your whole body in a more healthy direction! Prepare to embark on a captivating journey into the world of probiotics and uncover the extraordinary impact of gut health on your immune system and beyond.
What is a probiotic?
Probiotics, commonly known as beneficial bacteria, are living microorganisms that provide numerous advantages to our health when ingested in sufficient quantities. While primarily linked to gastrointestinal well-being, their impact extends well beyond that! These friendly microorganisms play a vital role in sustaining a well-functioning digestive system, enhancing the immune system, and even play a significant role in fighting against allergies.
How can probiotics support my health?
Pro bios means ‘for life’. Probiotics are primarily known as they support the body’s digestive health. The best know probiotic strains are lactobacillus and bifidobacteria. They colonise the mucus membranes of our digestive system and ensure that the natural gut flora can fight off unwanted substances. The more healthy bacteria we have in our digestive system, the stronger our resistance to pathogens and toxins.
There are many reasons why taking a probiotic may be the ideal solution for you and your health. Your gut flora is sensitive to many factors and can become weak over time if pushed to the limit. When your gut bacteria suffer, then so does the lining of your intestine, leaving it permeable and making it easier for pathogens and toxins to get into your bloodstream (leaky gut). A damaged gut also means that our immune defenses are also compromised. 80% of your bodies immune cells are in the gut, so if you look after your gut bacteria, they will help to protect you when your immune system is being challenged. Not eating a balanced diet, taking regular medication, high physical activity and long-term stress are all factors that can have a huge impact on your gut microbiome, that may be leaving you more susceptible to infections or more likely to suffer with digestive issues such as bloating, constipation or diarrhoea.
What makes OMNi-BiOTiC ® 6 unique?
OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 was the first probiotic that was developed at Institut AllergoSan and over the last 30 years, this bestseller has proved to be the go-to product for overall gut health!
Like every OMNi-BiOTiC® product in our range, our bestseller OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 meets a compehensive list of quality criteria. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 contains 6 bacterial strains that have been tested and proved in clinical studies. Each 2 g dose is packed with 2 billion stomach-acid-resistant bacteria as well as a special matrix of enzymes and fibre to strengthen the bacteria upon activation! Plus, no need to worry about storing the product in the fridge, as is the case with many other probiotic products, because OMNi-BiOTiC® strains are strong enough to withstand temperatures of up to even 40 degrees C. This is all down to the freeze-dried formulation, and reactivation method that occurs just before taking it! Simply stir in a glass of water, wait one minute, stir again and drink!
For almost 30 years I have dedicated myself to research around the gut. Optimal gut health should be accessible to everyone. – Anita Frauwallner, CEO of Institut AllergoSan
How does OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 work?
Clinical studies show that the immune system and the intestine are closely correlated. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 is a dietary supplement, containing six scientifically tested bacterial strains which exhibit the following characteristics and properties, which define the intended use of the product:
- Sustainably colonise the whole gut from top to bottom.
- Support gut flora diversity and digestive function.
- Improvement of the barrier function of the intestinal mucosa.
Who can benefit from OMNi-BiOTiC® 6?
OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 can sustainably regulate your gut flora and it is the perfect solution for anyone (from birth and beyond!) who is looking for a natural way to support your digestive as well as your overall health and well-being!
There are many factors that can cause damage to your gut flora, including high stress levels, unbalanced diets, regularly taking medication, among others! This damage may not immediately make itself noticeable and some health problems you are experiencing may be related to your gut health without you realising the connection. A damaged gut flora may not only be causing digestive problems such as bloating and constipation, but can also cause you to feel more tired or even have skin problems. Most of all, a imbalanced gut can impact your immune system, leaving you more susceptible to infections.
How is OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 taken?
Stir 1 dose of OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 (= 2/3 g) 1-2 times daily into a glass of water (approx. 125 mL) at room temperature, wait at least 1 minute for bacterial activation, stir again and then drink. Ideally, OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 should be taken on an empty stomach. If you take OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 twice daily, it should be taken before breakfast and before the evening meal. If you suffer from a fructose intolerance, you should extend the activation time to at least 30 minutes. During this time the bacteria metabolise the fructooligosaccharides. Therefore no fructose gets into the intestine. OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 is also safe for use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
