Diamond Nutritionals’ Ultra Probiotic Formula Supplies live probiotic organisms to the gastrointestinal tract for both supplemental and therapeutic benefits.
The use of probiotics as bio-therapeutic agents is commonplace in the US and around much of the world. Probiotics are typically delivered in relatively low-dose functional foods (primarily yogurts) providing a few billion colony forming units (CFU) or less; or in modest doses, in the form of dietary supplements of 5-25 billion CFU. Over the past several years, an emerging trend has witnessed much higher doses of probiotics being used in clinical practice and research.
The initial focus of the clinical research on high-dose probiotics has been primarily on functional GI disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD). These conditions represent extreme examples of dysbiosis and dysfunction within the mucosal immune system of the gut; a system which is integrally associated with the microflora of the gut lumen.
