Seidylevur® is a symbiotic (a mixture of a specific selection of live bacteria and prebiotic fiber), reinforced with Zinc and Vitamin B6, that contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system. Can be used in adults and children from 3 years old.
Seidylevur® contains 10.000 million live bacteria (1×1010 CFU) per stick, of the species: Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus casei, and also ot Saccharomyces boulardii (a yeast), in accordance with the current recommendations of the World Organization of Gastroenterology (WGO) for the prevention and treatment of acute diarrhea, associated or not with the intake of antibiotics.
Inulin (FOS) is a non-digestible prebiotic fiber that reaches the colon intact, where it serves as a nutrient for intestinal microorganisms and contributes to accelerating their proliferation.
Imbalance of the intestinal flora
The largest population of microorganisms in the human body resides mainly in the colon. It is made up of hundreds of species that play an essential role in the proper functioning of the digestive and immune systems. They also contribute to the production of vitamins K and B and to the supply of energy, as well as the absorption of minerals, such as calcium, iron or magnesium. This varied multitude of intestinal microorganisms is commonly known as the intestinal flora or microbiota.Sometimes the composition of the flora can be altered: following the intake of antibiotics, due to in-adequate dietary habits, to stress or to weight gain, among other causes. This alteration can cause the overproliferation of pathogens that cause gastrointestinal disorders, such as acute diarrhea.
In most cases, the diarrheal process is usually mild, but when it occurs in vulnerable people or children, special care must be taken to prevent them from dehydration.
Numerous scientific reviews have shown probiotics useful in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. In the case of acute diarrhea, they can prevent its onset, decrease its duration and / or mitigate its effects.The specific composition of Seidylevur® contributes to the restoration and maintenance of the intestinal flora and to the reinforcement of the immune system.
