Probiotics are naturally occurring bacteria that are either the same as or very similar to the healthy bacteria found in the gut of the human body. Probiotics have several health-enhancing and beneficial effects. Certain bacterial strains have been heavily researched to assist with digestion, support the immune system, and help maintain and restore healthy microflora in the gut after taking antibiotics.
Symptoms of having imbalances in the gut flora include: abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and a struggling immune system. Probiotic supplements, therefore, have been used therapeutically to help individuals restore a healthy balance of the bacteria in their gut.
There are many probiotic supplements in the market each having various formulas including different strains and quantities. Many probiotic formulas include large quantities of the strains that have not been researched to provide maximum beneficial effects or contain insufficient quantities of the vital bacterial strains. Additionally, a common problem associated with probiotic supplementation is the method of delivery, which is generally in an unstable capsule that may be compromised by moisture.

Probiotics are bacteria that are either the same as or very similar to the bacteria that colonize and compose of the gastrointestinal microflora. There are a greater number of bacteria in your intestines than there are cells in your body; in fact, there are more than 400 bacterial types that live in the intestine.
The initial period of bacterial colonization in the colon takes place during infancy and continues into the second year of life in which the intestinal flora resembles that of the adult. A normal, healthy adult has intestinal microflora that resemble a complex ecosystem and serve many functions for the nutrition and health of the host. Several studies show that specific bacteria strains in significant quantities can have therapeutic qualities benefitting the gastrointestinal tract and immune system.
Probiotics have several health-enhancing and beneficial effects and certain strains have been heavily researched to assist with digestion, support the immune system, and help maintain and restore healthy microflora in the gut after taking antibiotics. MaxLiving Probiotic 50B contains a diversity of bacterial strains that target gastrointestinal health and address common conditions such as irregular bowel functions, antibiotic side effects, dietary imbalances, and stress.
MaxLiving Probiotic 50B contains a broad spectrum of the 10 most researched probiotics known to enhance human health.
- Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS®-1) is a potent immunomodulatory probiotic strain shown to enhance immune activity by increasing the effect of regulatory T cells, which modulate the immune system and prevent autoimmune disease, and stimulating the production of chemokines and cytokines. Lactobacillus acidophilus has also been shown to enhance the immunoglobulin A (IgA) response in the digestive track, as well as significantly reduce the incidence and duration of cold and flu symptoms.
- Lactobacillus plantarum (UALp-05TM) is an active participant in the gastrointestinal immune system. Lactobacillus plantarum has shown to reduce the gastrointestinal symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as well as prevent the milder gastrointestinal side effects, such as diarrhea, of antibiotics. Additionally, studies show that Lactobacillus plantarum has an attenuating effect on inflammation caused by intestinal disorders.
- Lactobacillus casei (UALc-03TM) has been identified as a dietary intervention for elderly patients suffering from common infections because it has been shown to reduce the duration of the illness.11 Lactobacillus casei has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to decrease serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels, tender and swollen joint counts, and improve overall health in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, Lactobacillus casei has been demonstrated to preserve glycaemic control maintaining insulin action in patients with diabetes mellitus, and it is purported to prevent high-fat diet-induced insulin resistance in humans.
- Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04) protects the body from allergic rhinitis and has been demonstrated to modify intestinal microbiota and confer immune effects present in the intestinal tract following environmental exposure. Like Lactobacillus plantarum, Bifidobacterium lactis has been shown to minimize the antibiotic disturbance of faecal microbiota caused by antibiotics.
- Bifidobacterium breve (UABbr-11TM) is a microorganism that has been shown to reduce the clinical status of ulcerative colitis significantly reducing the fecal counts of Bacteroidaceae and fecal pH of patients. Bifidobacterium breve has been shown to prevent and improve constipation, abdominal bloating, anal itch, burn, pain, and other symptoms of common gastrointestinal disorders and hard stool. Also, given its positive effects on intestinal motor function, modulation of the inflammatory response, and mucosal barrier function, Bifidobacterium breve has been shown to improve the symptoms of necrotizing enterocolitis in preterm infants.
- Lactobacillus paracasei (Lpc-37) can facilitate gut normalization and improve the immune function after antibiotic treatment by restoring the microbiome. As an immunomodulatory agent, it has been shown to induce IL-10, (TNF)-α, (IFN)-γ, and IL-12, and enhance the immunoglobulin G (IgG) and immunoglobulin M (IgM) response.
- Lactobacillus salivarius (UALs-07TM) has been purported as the probiotic occupying the gastrointestinal niche as several studies show it mitigates inflammatory symptoms and modulates cytokine production, as well as the cellular response to pathogenic challenges while promoting host well-being. In addition, oral administration of Lactobacilli salivarius has also improved physiologic halitosis and showed beneficial effects on bleeding on probing from the periodontal pocket in patients with halitosis.
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus (HN001) is a probiotic bacteria that has been demonstrated as a immunomodulatory strain that increases cytokine production for Th1 and Th2 immune response and the innate immune response. Lactobacillus rhamnosus is an effective anti-E. coli Immunoglobulin A (IgA) agent, increases blood leucocyte phagocytic activity, and protects against virulent enteric bacterial pathogens, such as Salmonella.
- Bifidobacterium bifidum (UABb-10TM) improves symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), such as abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, and diarrhea by controlling pathogenic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. It has also been shown to improve upper gastrointestinal symptoms associated with H. pylori infections.
- Bifidobacterium longum (UABI-14TM) has been shown to be effective at improving the symptoms of coeliac disease (CD) by decreasing T lymphocytes and HLA-DRþ T lymphocytes in the gut, which decreases the inflammatory response associated with CD.22 Studies also show that Bifidobacterium longum reduces TNF-alpha, CRP, serum AST, insulin resistance, serum endotoxin, and steatosis in patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.
