Probiotics vs Stomach Acid – which wins?

by VitaGene Support

Science confirms how important a healthy gut is for a healthy you – and probiotics have long been acknowledged as a fast-track solution to boosting the health of your gut.

However, before probiotics can reach your gut, or more correctly your lower intestine, they have to pass through the stomach, the organ that contains the highly corrosive acids that break down the food we eat.  Unfortunately, live probiotic bacteria are no match for stomach acid. 

Studies show that up to 90% of probiotic bacteria are destroyed by stomach acid and never reach your lower intestine to do the work that helps you experience health benefits.

Probitec, a newly launched probiotic in South Africa, uses 5-proprietary technologies to protect its probiotic bacteria from being destroyed by stomach acid, ensuring a full 10 Billion CFU dose delivery. 

Most conventional probiotics lose up to 90% of their dose. This is why Probitec delivers 10x to 2000x more live probiotic bacteria to your lower intestine, when comparing to most other brands.

How does it work? 

It works, as the name suggests, by employing two acid-resistant capsules, one inside the other, each designed to dissolve at different pH environments of your gut.

This ensures that the probiotic is only released once it has passed through the destructive forces of the stomach and entered into the lower intestine.

Probitec uses Lactobacillus Acidophilus La-14, a strain of bacteria already common in the human body and one of the most studied strains of Acidophilus worldwide which allows us to know exactly which diseases and ailments it can be used as a treatment for. 

The strain is clinically proven to provide relief from gut-associated illness such as:

  1. Abdominal or stomach pain
  2. IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
  3. Diarrhoea
  4. Bloating
  5. Thrush
  6. The effects of antibiotic use
  7. Lactose Intolerance
  8. Candida
  9. Gut allergies
  10. Bacterial Vaginosis

Probitec also delivers a prebiotic into the gut (equivalent to eating 9 onions) to create sustenance for your good bacteria and to clean out toxins.

Probitec capsules are vegetarian, Kosher and Halaal friendly. It does not need to be kept in a fridge and can also be taken simultaneously with antibiotics.
