Key Ingredients Found in nutraMetrix® Nutriclean® Probiotics:

Probiotics have been called the functional ingredient of the decade. Clinical research has shown their positive impact on immunity, digestive health and much more. Probiotics help maintain a healthy balance of essential bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, and are increasingly important in the American diet as we continue to rely on processed foods and prescription drugs.

Lactobacillus plantarum: L. plantarum has been used in the process of fermenting foods for hundreds of years. It promotes a normal digestive tract, and has been shown to be beneficial to individuals suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease and colitis. It is able to destroy pathogens while preserving vital nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. One of the most amazing talents of L. plantarum is its ability to synthesize L-lysine, an essential amino acid. L. plantarum is able to ward off harmful bacteria in the intestine by preventing the pathogenic bacteria from attaching to the mucosal lining and also by competing for nutrients which the pathogenic bacteria live on. By doing so, harmful bacteria pass harmlessly through the body.

Lactobacillus acidophilus: L. acidophilus is one of the most highly studied and widely used probiotic organisms. It is a strain of lactic acid producing, rod-shaped microbes that have numerous benefits for digestive health. L. acidophilus produces vitamin K, lactase and anti-microbial substances, such as acidolin, acidolphilin, lactocidin and bacteriocin. Multiple human trials report benefits of L. acidophilus for bacterial vaginosis. Due to the multiple functions of this microorganism, scientists have discovered that administering L. acidophilus orally helps reduce the colonization of pathogenic bacteria, such as E. coli within the digestive tract. L. acidophilus has been shown to improve digestive functions and boost the immune system. The lactase that L. acidophilus creates is an enzyme that assists in the breakdown of lactose into simple sugars, which can be very useful for people who experience lactose intolerance.

Lactobacillus rhamnosusL. rhamnosus is a strain of probiotics that aids in balancing the gastrointestinal microflora. It is one of the most intensely studied bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. One of the remarkable things about L. rhamnosus is its ability to tolerate and even thrive in the harsh acidic conditions normally found in the stomach. L. rhamnosus is believed to be of considerable assistance with immune function in healthy adults, particularly in combating pathogens involved with the urinary tract system (acidic condition). Research has shown that L. rhamnosus can prevent apoptosis in gastric epithelial cells, improving the integrity of the stomach lining. A review article published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that L. rhamnosus can reduce the duration of diarrhea caused by rotavirus infection and other causes.

Lactobacillus salivariusL. salivarius resides in the mouth and small intestine. It has been shown effective in fighting off at least five dangerous bacteria that are involved in producing plaque, thus, assisting in dental health. L. salivarius has the unique ability to fight off the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria which are responsible for most peptic ulcers. Researchers studied animal response after induced colitis and septic shock, and treatment with L. salivarius. They noticed the particular role of L. salivarius in striving to reestablish homeostasis within the intestines. Therefore, L. salivarius may be related to the immune response.

Lactobacillus casei: L. casei is a rod-shaped species of Lactobacillus found in milk, cheese and dairy. It is a lactic acid producer like other species within the Lactobacillus genus and has been found to assist in the colonization of beneficial bacteria. In particular, it helps with the growth of L. acidophilus, which can help prevent conditions such as constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. A study was conducted to determine if L. casei had any effect on the symptoms of Crohn's disease. The researchers concluded that L. casei can counteract the pro-inflammatory effects of Escherichia coli on Crohn's disease. L. casei is active in a broad temperature and pH range, and can be found naturally in the mouth and intestine of humans. It is a lactase producer which aids in improving lactose intolerance and promoting optimal digestive health.

Lactobacillus helveticus: L. helveticus has been well studied for many years and is commonly used in the production of Swiss-type cheeses to enhance flavor. Several beneficial probiotic effects are reported, such as the ability to survive in the stomach and to reach the intestine alive, exerting antimicrobial activities against pathogens, alleviating symptoms of lactose intolerance, and helping to prevent and reduce the duration of diarrhea. A number of studies have been conducted in regard to the myriad of potential health benefits offered by L. helveticus. These studies have focused on health topics, such as bone mineral density and bone mineral content, calcium and bone metabolism, arterial stiffness and blood pressure.

Bifidobacterium bifidum: Bifidobacterium are rod-shaped microbes that have been identified as the most important organisms in the intestine for providing barrier protection from pathogens. Like Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium are lactic acid-producing microbes found in fermented foods such as yogurt and cheese. Despite the fact that when we are born Bifidobacterium makes up approximately 95 percent of the total gut population, the Bifidobacterium population decreases in our intestines as adults and declines further as we advance in age. B. bifidum is the predominant bacteria strain found in the microflora of breast-fed infants. It is believed that B. bifidum contributes to the increased protection that breast-fed infants have from gastrointestinal infections. In addition to barrier protection, research has shown that Bifidobacterium have immunomodulating effects by stimulating lymphocyte and phagocyte activity. It has also been used to alleviate gastrointestinal complications related to intestinal lining dysfunctions.

Bifidobacterium longum: B. longum is a branched, rod-shaped bacterium that is among the first to colonize the sterile digestive tract of newborn infants. There is evidence that B. longum competes for attachment sites on the intestinal mucosal membrane, preventing the colonization of pathogenic coliform bacteria. It has a high resistance to gastric acid and shares similar functions as B. bifidum, such as boosting the immune system and providing barrier protection from pathogens.

Bifidobacterium breve: B. breve is another branched, rod-shaped bacterium. In medical studies, ailments such as antibiotic-associated diarrhea, allergies, gas and irritable bowel syndrome have been linked to a patient's shortage of the B. breve bacteria. The presence of B. breve appears to inhibit E coli. B. breve is also present in the vagina, where it helps to inhibit overgrowth of Candida albicans, the primary cause of yeast infections in women. The job of B. breve in the digestive tract is to ferment sugars and produce lactic acid, as well as acetic acid. B. breve is like a champion among probiotic bacteria due to its superior ability to metabolize many types of food.

Bifidobacterium infantis: B. infantis is a probiotic bacterium that inhabits the intestine of both infants and adults. According to a study sponsored by P&G Health Sciences Institute and published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, B. infantis may be beneficial to individuals who suffer from the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), including bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, urgency and abdominal discomfort. B. infantis plays an important role in basic digestion, proper metabolism and overall well-being.

What Makes nutraMetrix® Nutriclean® Probiotics Unique?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that work to remove toxins from the body, and help regulate the balance between harmful and beneficial bacterial in the digestive tract. nutraMetrix Nutriclean Probiotics promotes healthy digestion by providing beneficial bacteria to recolonize and balance the GI tract, and hinder the growth of harmful, toxic bacteria, while also promoting a healthy immune system. nutraMetrix Nutriclean Probiotics provides 10 different strains and 10 billion active probiotic organisms. Each strain has a unique purpose, and the strains work synergistically to impact numerous areas of health, from immunity to stomach comfort and bowel regularity.

While other probiotics products may deliver large amounts of Colony Forming Units (CFUs) and probiotic strain variety, they do not deliver the complete support that nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics offers. This could be for a number of reasons. First, the number of CFUs in other products may be coming from a small number of strains. But nutraMetrix NutriClean probiotics delivers its 10 billion CFUs from 10 probiotics strains, specifically targeting numerous areas of digestive and immune health.

Second, many of these products’ strains and CFUs can easily become less viable due to their manufacturing process and extended shelf life. By the time you take the product, it may be significantly less effective. nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics utilizes LiveBac® technology – a unique tableting process that delivers highly viable probiotic organisims far less susceptible to the effects of damaging environmental factors. This extends the active shelf life of our product.

Third, probiotics can become ineffective when they come in contact with stomach acids during the digestive process. This means that when you take a probiotics product, the number of viable strains and CFUs can become greatly reduced by the time they are absorbed into the body. To combat this, nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics utilizes BIO-tract® technology, a patented delivery system that protects probiotic organisms from stomach acid on their way to the intestinal tract, ensuring a significantly higher percentage of organisms reaches the intestine alive.

nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics has 10 carefully selected probiotics strains, each with unique roles to help you maintain bacterial balance and optimal digestive health: 

  • Lactobacillus plantarum was selected because of its unique ability to destroy pathogens (potentially harmful bacteria).
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus for a number of reasons, perhaps most notably its ability to synthesize lactase, an enzyme which breaks down lactose. Therefore, it is very beneficial for individuals who struggle with lactose or milk sensitivities.
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus plays a major role in immune support.
  • Lactobacillus salivarius has been shown to fight off at least five dangerous bacteria that are involved in the formation of plaque on teeth and peptic ulcers.
  • Lactobacillus casei promotes overall digestive comfort, and helps relieve constipation while lactobacillus helveticus has been shown to prevent and reduce the duration of diarrhea.
  • Lactobacillus helveticus has been shown to reduce the duration of mild diarrhea.
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum supports the protective barrier in the digestive tract to increase protection from pathogens.
  • Bifidobacterium longum helps minimize the growth of harmful bacteria by competing for attachment sites in the intestines.
  • Bifidobacterium breve was included because research has shown that allergies, gas and diarrhea have been associated with a shortage of this bacterium.
  • Bifidobacterium infantis supports overall digestion and metabolism.

What Makes nutraMetrix® Nutriclean® Probiotics Unique?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that work to remove toxins from the body, and help regulate the balance between harmful and beneficial bacterial in the digestive tract. nutraMetrix Nutriclean Probiotics promotes healthy digestion by providing beneficial bacteria to recolonize and balance the GI tract, and hinder the growth of harmful, toxic bacteria, while also promoting a healthy immune system. nutraMetrix Nutriclean Probiotics provides 10 different strains and 10 billion active probiotic organisms. Each strain has a unique purpose, and the strains work synergistically to impact numerous areas of health, from immunity to stomach comfort and bowel regularity.

While other probiotics products may deliver large amounts of Colony Forming Units (CFUs) and probiotic strain variety, they do not deliver the complete support that nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics offers. This could be for a number of reasons. First, the number of CFUs in other products may be coming from a small number of strains. But nutraMetrix NutriClean probiotics delivers its 10 billion CFUs from 10 probiotics strains, specifically targeting numerous areas of digestive and immune health.

Second, many of these products’ strains and CFUs can easily become less viable due to their manufacturing process and extended shelf life. By the time you take the product, it may be significantly less effective. nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics utilizes LiveBac® technology – a unique tableting process that delivers highly viable probiotic organisims far less susceptible to the effects of damaging environmental factors. This extends the active shelf life of our product.

Third, probiotics can become ineffective when they come in contact with stomach acids during the digestive process. This means that when you take a probiotics product, the number of viable strains and CFUs can become greatly reduced by the time they are absorbed into the body. To combat this, nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics utilizes BIO-tract® technology, a patented delivery system that protects probiotic organisms from stomach acid on their way to the intestinal tract, ensuring a significantly higher percentage of organisms reaches the intestine alive.

nutraMetrix NutriClean Probiotics has 10 carefully selected probiotics strains, each with unique roles to help you maintain bacterial balance and optimal digestive health: 

  • Lactobacillus plantarum was selected because of its unique ability to destroy pathogens (potentially harmful bacteria).
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus for a number of reasons, perhaps most notably its ability to synthesize lactase, an enzyme which breaks down lactose. Therefore, it is very beneficial for individuals who struggle with lactose or milk sensitivities.
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus plays a major role in immune support.
  • Lactobacillus salivarius has been shown to fight off at least five dangerous bacteria that are involved in the formation of plaque on teeth and peptic ulcers.
  • Lactobacillus casei promotes overall digestive comfort, and helps relieve constipation while lactobacillus helveticus has been shown to prevent and reduce the duration of diarrhea.
  • Lactobacillus helveticus has been shown to reduce the duration of mild diarrhea.
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum supports the protective barrier in the digestive tract to increase protection from pathogens.
  • Bifidobacterium longum helps minimize the growth of harmful bacteria by competing for attachment sites in the intestines.
  • Bifidobacterium breve was included because research has shown that allergies, gas and diarrhea have been associated with a shortage of this bacterium.
  • Bifidobacterium infantis supports overall digestion and metabolism.
