Enerex’s The Friendly Trio® + NAG contains 1 billion live cultures of bacteria strains called Lactobacillus acidophilus KS-13, Bifidobacterium bifidum G9-1,and Bifidobacterium longum MM-2.
Enerex chose these three types of bacteria because they have been researched to be optimum for a balanced intestinal environment. The Friendly Trio® are obtained from living human micro-organisms, perfected through decades of laboratory culturing. They have been processed to retain viability at room temperature, meaning unlike many other probiotics supplements, they do no need to be refrigerated. These particular strains are used in over 30,000 hospitals and clinics worldwide.
Are probiotics enough? What can you do to improve their benefits?
To help ensure that the beneficial bacteria proliferate, and to get the greatest therapeutic benefits, you can combine probiotics with natural substances that repair inflamed or damaged tissue of the digestive system to create a healthy home for the new probiotics. And soluble fibre acts as a “prebiotic,” and is broken down to become the primary food for your probiotics. The Friendly Trio'® probiotic is enhanced with N-Acetylglucosamine (NAG) for digestive support and repair; and this formula has a prebiotic called FOS (Fructooligosaccharides).
What is NAG?
NAG (N-Acetylglucosamine) is a natural part of the mucous membranes in your digestive, respiratory and urinary tracts. NAG helps to - protect and “rebuild” these areas, help with cell growth, and keep the cells in close proximity to each other to ensure a tight barrier of this tissue. NAG is an “amino sugar,” and is a ready-made building material for tissue repair.
What is FOS?
FOS (Fructo-oligosaccharides) is a prebiotic made from inulin, which is a very healthy dietary fibre. Inulin, made from chicory root, helps to keep the stomach, intestines and bowels healthy by nurturing the growth of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus. This fibre also aids in bowel regularity, which helps to prevent a build-up of unhealthy bacteria that thrive on the toxins created from a sluggish elimination system.
A gut reaction?
Recent studies have shown that probiotics can help to relieve inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), reduce inflammation in ulcerative colitis, prevent and lessen diarrhea, prevent and manage skin diseases (including eczema), reduce infections including Candida albicans yeast, and decrease constipation.
