Transcript

  • 1. By Probiotics Expert: Dr. Raga
  • 2.  Probiotics are described by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a group of live microorganisms that when taken in adequate amounts can cause beneficial effects to its host.  The term “Probiotics” literally mean for life.  Danactive probiotic is produced by a company called Danone. It is a probiotic which comes in the form of a yogurt drink.
  • 3.  The standard formulation of Danactive probiotic includes sugar (sucrose), milk (fresh/powdered), live yogurt cultures, and a live strain of Lactobacillus casei which amounts to 10 million per 100 mL bottle.  Other cultures included in this product are Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Streptococcus Thermophillus.  It comes in several flavors such as Apricot, Blueberry, Coconut, Multifruit, Orange, O riginal, Raspberry, Strawberry, Strawberry & Banana, Vanilla. Fat Free: Original, Peach & Mango, Raspberry, and Strawberry.
  • 4. 1. Lactobacillus Casei  A species of Lactobacillus which is commonly found in the human mouth and intestines.  According to studies, this has a wide range of temperature and pH. This complements the growth of L. Acidophillus.  Have been found to have a beneficial effect in preventing the growth of Helicobacter Pylori. This makes it essential in maintaining digestive health since it can help to defend the body against gastrointestinal diseases caused by pathogens like H. Pylori.  There are also trials which showed that it can aid in treatment of antibiotic associated diarrhea and Clostridium infections.
  • 5. 2. LactobacillusBulgaricus  One of the most commonly used bacteria for the production of yogurt and is found naturally in fermented food.  The bacteria was first discovered by a Bulgarian doctor, Stamen Grigorov. He found out that this bacteria feeds on lactose. Then, it produces lactic acid which is utilized in the production of milk.
  • 6. 3. Streptococcus Thermophillus  Another bacteria which is a lactic acid bacterium.  Also, it is commonly used in yogurt production and found in fermented foods too.  This species of streptococcus is beneficial in people who are lactose intolerant. This is because it can help in the digestion of lactose.
  • 7. 1. Vitamins and Minerals that are present in this yogurt:  Vitamin A  Vitamin D  Vitamin B complex like riboflavin  Calcium  Phosphorus
  • 8. 2. The Danactive probiotic yogurt is low in fat.  Most people have problems in keeping a low fat diet. With the intake of yogurt, there is only about 5g of fat per serving.  An adequate and proper amount of fat is essential in any diet. Yogurt is also beneficial because it contains protein as well. Protein is vital for the healthy functioning of muscles as well as for skin and bones.
  • 9. 3. Better digestive health  Yogurt undergo the process of fermentation. In this process, about 20 to 30 percent of the milk’s lactose used is converted to lactic acid.  Most yogurts contain the bacteria called ß- galactosidase. This makes it easy for lactose- intolerant people to digest lactose.  Also, the texture of the yogurt makes it more suitable for digestion. This is due to its thick texture that makes it take longer to move throughout the digestive tract. With this, lactose is broken down more efficiently.
  • 10.  The incorporation of probiotics into dietary products such as yogurt is a great advancement in the health industry. This is due to the discovery of strains which are helpful in digestion, especially those who have lactose and casein intolerance. The only issue is the quantity of probiotics tends to be very little and cannot easily fight off a serious infection. It is good for maintenance of your health, but if you are sick I believe supplements are a better route to go than sticking with yogurt. Even the best yogurts do not contain much beneficial bacteria.
  • 11.  Probacto is the best probiotic that I have ever run into. They use multiple strains and they are spore forming so they can last while not refrigerated. They do not use cheap bacteria, but expensive ones such as B. Subtilis.  Probacto also contains prebiotics to help stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut.  Probacto contains digestive enzymes to assist in your digestion.  Probacto is enteric coated and made to be slow release so it will release in your gut gradually.
