iFlora Probiotic

iFlora probiotic is a blend of sixteen different bacteria including five members of the important Bifidobacterium family and more Lactobacillus than you can shake a stick at!

This complex mix of probiotics is good because different ones are better suited to different areas. For example Bifidobacteria will travel throught to the large intestine where it will ferment soluble fiber and make vitamins such as several of the B vitamins and K.

Lactobacillus produce antibacterial substances that protect the small intestine.

Both of these groups of benefical bacteria help to protect you against harmful pathogens and strengthen the immune system.

The iFlora multi-probiotic capsules contain:-

  • Bifidobacterium bifidum
  • Bifidobacterium breve
  • Bifidobacterium lactis (infantis)
  • Bifidobacterium lactis HN019
  • Bifidobacterium longum
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus brevis
  • Lactobacillus bulgaricus
  • Lactobacillus casei
  • Lactobacillus gasseri
  • Lactobacillus paracasei
  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus
  • Lactobacillus salivarius
  • Lactococcus lactis
  • Streptococcus thermophilus

Each pill contains 16 billion cfu in a vegetarian capsule. The suggested dose is 2 capsules a day which will give you a real probiotic boost.

Here is a review on Flora Source which is a very similar product as iFlora (different manufacturer) where Rachel speaks highly of it particularly in relieving the pain and pressure of IBS.

And plenty of people on Amazon like it. Works for both diarrhea and constipation, great on acid reflux, bloating and thrush. Only one person did not like - did not help their gas problem but it sounds as if they increased the dose much too quickly so were, in fact, making the problem themself.

You can buy Iflora Multi Probiotic 60 Capsules online or the same bacteria in powder form if you prefer iFlora Multi-Probiotic Powder. The powder is just sprinkled onto food or mixed with a drink (no warmer than body temperature.)

Lactobacillus plantarum has a particularly good reputation with Irritable Bowel Syndrome so it is not surprizing to see that it is in this blend of good bacteria. All the important Bifidobacterium species are in it as well as L acidophilus.
