By promoting a healthy intestinal tract, Theralac® enhances the absorption of the other supplements you are taking.
Each Theralac® capsule contains:
Theralac - A Breakthrough in Probiotic Technology
- Five Probiotic Species:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus – 10 billion CFU
- Lactobacillus paracasei – 5 billion CFU
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus – 2 billion CFU
- Bifidobacterium lactis – 10 billion CFU
- Bifidobacterium lactis – 3 billion CFU
- Formulated at 40 Billion Colony Forming Units - Guaranteed at 30 Billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) through expiration.
- 2 prebiotics that stimulate probiotics - LactoStim® (patent pending) and Lactoferrin.
- Natural acid-proof gel formulation utilizing sodium alginate and grape skin extract protected by US patents 7,122,370 and 7,229,818.
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 Lactoferrin, 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 Lactoferrin, a natural substance isolated from cow’s milk (purified to contain NO casein, whey protein or lactose!) that removes iron from the alginate-gel as it carries the probiotics deep into the intestinal tract. This keeps undesirable bacteria from invading the gel and competing with the probiotics before they find their colonization sites. Each THERALAC® capsule contains 20 mg of Lactoferrin.
