Vivomixx® Probiotic 10 Capsules
Vivomixx® works by colonising the gastrointestinal tract with optimal quantities and types of probiotic bacteria. These bacteria adhere to the walls of the gastrointestinal tract and form a barrier that protects the inner layer of the gastrointestinal tract from pathogens. Evidence suggests that Vivomixx® can reduce intestinal permeability by tightening the junctions between the cells in the outer layer of the intestine which reduces the likelihood of translocation (pathogens moving from the intestine into the blood).
When ingested on a regular basis, Vivomixx® from OSA Pharma should improve or normalise the microbial balance in the human intestine and thereby improve the functioning of the digestive tract/gut.
Always take Vivomixx® exactly as indicated or as your doctor has instructed you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure. Take one to four capsules daily, with a glass of water. Should the capsule be too difficult to swallow, open and dissolve contents in water or any other cold, non-carbonated drink. Do not exceed the recommended dose.
Best taken in the morning on an empty stomach.
If on antibiotics, take between doses to minimise the inactivation of Vivomixx®.
