Are the strains in Alflorex® Dual Action compatible?

Mixing bacterial strains together can mean their individual properties are effected and they may even knock each other out.

The clinical data for multiple strain formulations should be for the specified combination and not extrapolated from that of the individual strains.

A clinical trial confirmed the combination of the 35624® and 1714-serenitas® strains were synergistic. These strains are contained in Alflorex® Dual Action.

What are the 35624® and 1714 - Serenitas® cultures?

They are both naturally occurring and safe bacterial cultures, unique to PrecisionBiotics® Group and belonging to the Bifidobacterium longum species.

These types of bacteria can be passed from mother to baby at birth and are native to the human gut.

Both were discovered by PrecisionBiotics® and have been the focus of research by internationally renowned scientists and clinicians. Both have been fully genetically sequenced.

How many bacteria are in each capsule of Alflorex® Dual Action?

A single Alflorex® Dual Action capsule contains one billion bacteria, or 1×109 colony forming units (CFUs), at the time of manufacture. The dose in the capsule remains effective throughout its shelf-life.

CFUs are an indication of how many bacterial cells are present.

The number of bacteria in each Alflorex® Dual Action capsule has been chosen for optimal balance.
