Consisting of 100,000 billion "good" bacteria, the intestinal microbiota plays a clearly identified and very important role within our body. It is involved in the synthesis of certain vitamins, contributes to digestion by using fermentation to convert indigestible foods into nutriments that can be absorbed, plays a part in the development of the immune system, provides protection against pathogens, helps bring the cells of the intestinal mucous membrane to create a proper barrier, and also produces all kinds of substances that allow communication with other organs (including the brain).
In addition to the roles already mentioned, intestinal flora plays a part in fat and sugar metabolism and in control of appetite. It is therefore also involved in weight control.
Each person has their own individual microbiota. In addition, recent studies show that certain microbiotas are conducive to weight gain, especially if certain strains of bacteria are missing.
Altering the intestinal flora of persons who have trouble losing weight is therefore a documented and reliable step in helping to control that person's figure.
According to WHO definitions, probiotics are live micro-organisms which, when administered in a sufficient quantity and with the proper combination of strains, help the intestinal microflora to develop and balance out and thus produce a positive effect on the health of the host.
A synergic combination of four specific probiotic strains, including Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. Lactis and Lactobacillus plantarum, MAFLORIL® Gasseri is therefore of real nutritional value as part of a slimming diet.
MAFLORIL® Gasseri brings in 10 billion probiotic lactic ferments, all of which play a particularly important role. The methods used in manufacturing it guarantee maximum stability at room temperature.
Its gastro-retardant plant capsules, and the choice of probiotic strains, guarantee that the ferments will resist gastric juices and biliary salts and dissipate in the target organ - the intestine.
