ProBion basic is a unique tablet with a sustained quality and prolonged shelf life. The tablet has a controlled release and dissolution profile, where the bacteria are exposed continuously further down in the small and large intestine. This prolongs the bacterial effect. ProBion basic is best for those with a sensitive or a slow or a constipated digestion and can be used therapeutically as well as in preventive purposes. If you experience a speedy and loose digestion or a slow or constipated digestion, you can choose alternatives as ProBion active, daily or clinica respectively.
ProBion basic contains viable lactic acid cultures 4 billions bacteria/tablet of Lactobacillus plantarum, bulgaricus and Bifidobacterium lactis and Inulin, Xanthan and magnesium stearate RSPO. ProBion basic is free from lactose. The lactic acid bacteria are cultivated without any supplement of milk or soya.
Inulin consists of natural fructo-oligosaccharides and -polysaccharides derived from the root Cichorium intybus. Carbohydrates like inulin stimulate the growth of probiotic bacteria and are considered to have positive effects on human health. Substances that stimulate the growth of probiotic bacteria are referred to as prebiotics. The combination of lactobacilli and inulin optimizes the bacterial effect.
Xanthan is a mucus forming substance that forms a protective cover around the bacteria during their passage towards the intestine preventing the damaging effects of bile- and gastric acids. Xanthan is produced by bacterial fermentation of carbohydrates.
Unique quality standards
ProBion basic is analysed using Flow Cytometric Fluorescence technique. Normally there are about 80 % viable and non-damaged bacteria with a guarantee of more than 50 % viable bacteria.
Start with 1 tablet per day the first week. Then gradually increase the dose to 1-2 tablets twice basic. In times of disorders double or triple the dose. Administrate the tablets together with food.

These disorders normally disappear within 1-2 weeks.
