SALT INFORMATION

Streptococcus Faecalis(30 millioncells)

TYPICAL USAGE

Gastrointestinal disorders such as antibiotic associated diarrhoea, and infectious and viral diarrhoeas.

SIDE EFFECTS

Flatulence, constipation.

DRUG INTERACTION

Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription medication you may use. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Clostridium Butyricum(2 millioncells)

TYPICAL USAGE

Diarrhoea

SIDE EFFECTS

Nausea, stomach upset, skin rash, acute toxicity.

DRUG INTERACTION

Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription medication you may use. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

A group of rod-shaped bacteria commonly found in the soil that grow best under low oxygen conditions. The bacteria form heat-resistant spores which allow them to survive in a dormant state until exposed to conditions that can support their growth. Clostridium botulinum produces botulinum toxin, a highly potent neurotoxin and the basis of the disease botulism. Clostridium botulinum and its spores are widely distributed in nature. They occur in both cultivated and forest soils, bottom sediments of streams, lakes, and coastal waters, and in the intestinal tracts of fish and mammals, and in the gills and viscera of crabs and other shellfish.

CONTRA INDICATIONS

Lactic Acid Bacillus Rhamnosus(1 millioncells)

TYPICAL USAGE

Prevention of rotavirus diarrhea in children, respiratory tract infections in children, prevention of atopic dermatitis, urinary tract infections.

SIDE EFFECTS

Intestinal gas or bloating, HIV/AIDS or people who have taken medicines to prevent rejection of a transplanted organ. Lactobacillus has caused disease (rarely) in people with weakened immune systems.

Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Lactic acid bacillus rhamnosus secreted substance, or parts of it, such as DNA, can produce benefits when ingested. Lactic acid bacillus rhamnosus have an antimicrobial effect through modifying the microflora, secreting antibacterial substances, competing with pathogens to prevent their adhesion to the intestine, competing for nutrients necessary for pathogen survival, and producing an antitoxin effect. Lactic acid bacillus rhamnosus are also capable of modulating the immune system, regulating allergic response of the body and reducing proliferation in cancer.

CONTRA INDICATIONS

Lactic acid bacillus rhamnosus is contraindicated in HIV/AIDS patients.
