The composition of the normobact: a triple blow to intestinal problems
In normobact included biological additives, balancing the bacterial background of the intestine:
- probiotics (lactobacilli, bifidobacteria);
- prebiotics (sugars of fruit origin);
- vitamins of group B.
Bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, being varieties of lactic acid bacteria that strengthen the immune system, differ in their habitat and certain functions. So, lactobacilli live in the entire intestine. Bifidobacteria, on the other hand, are located only in the large intestine, they can inhibit carcinogens and thus protect the body from allergies.
Fruit sugars, entering the gastrointestinal tract, create a favorable environment for life and development of probiotics.
Vitamins of group B are involved in the metabolic processes of the intestinal microflora, and also participate in the synthesis of acetylcholine - a substance that regulates intestinal motility, which binds to the nervous system.
The combination of the active substances in the normobact, allows you to resist pathogens in the intestine.
