The intestine and the immune system

In a well-functioning intestine, useful bacteria fend off pathogens and prevent them from entering the bloodstream. However, to be able to do this they need to be present in the intestine in sufficient numbers. This might be prevented and problematic when you are stressed, take medication or have the wrong diet.
A healthy and balanced intestinal flora effectively protects the body from pathogens invading and multiplying. The intestine regulates up to 80 % of all immune responses of the body and is therefore considered the body’s most important immune organ. It is possible to support the balance of the immune system with special intestinal bacteria and vitamins.
DEFENSE.pro combines cultures of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species, which act by colonizing the intestine. Furthermore, DEFENSE.pro contains valuable vitamins that provide many health benefits (in line with EU Regulation No. 432): Vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin B9 (folate), vitamin A and vitamin D all contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system; vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B7 (biotin) help to maintain normal mucosas; vitamin B1 (thiamine) helps to maintain a normal mental state; vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
The live microorganisms come in the form of a powder contained in capsules with enteric coating. This is to ensure that they pass through the stomach without any problems. During digestion, acid and enzymes are produced which would make it difficult for the microbes to survive. To make absolutely sure that the capsules will arrive undamaged in the intestine, it is recommended that the capsules are ingested 20 to 30 minutes before a meal. By the time they reach the intestine, the coating has dissolved and the bacterial strains can colonize the colon. The recommended dose is one capsule per day. If DEFENSE.pro causes discomfort in any way, adjust or discontinue intake. It is also no problem to stop the intake for 1-2 days, so that the body can slowly get used to the ingredients. If you also take antibiotics, you should take DEFENSE.pro at least 2 hours after you take the antibiotics. Compatibility with other probiotic products from BIOMES and drugs: It is possible to combine two or more probiotic food supplements from BIOMESHowever, for the microbes to develop optimally, we recommend not to take more than one probiotic food supplement at a time. The recommended maximum number of capsules is 1 per day. A longer-term or even permanent intake of BIOMES probiotic food supplements is only recommended if this is done on the basis of the intestinal flora analysis INTEST.pro.Thanks to the exact listing of all microbes living in the intestine, it is possible to determine exactly which cultures are missing or deficient so to settle only those in a controlled way. Otherwise the intake without analytical basis can lead to the displacement of important other bacterial cultures which are not supplied in such high doses. In addition, BIOMES food supplements contain highly active bacterial cultures that are capable of reproduction. No side effects with other drugs are known. Food supplements do not substitute for a balanced and varied diet. Please store out of the reach of children. If you suffer from a severe histamine intolerance, you should not take this probiotic composition. We recommend HISTA.pro to people who have a known intolerance of this type. DEFENSE.pro also contains the beneficial Saccharomyces boulardii type of yeast. Some people may have a higher risk of side effects or contraindications for Saccharomyces boulardii. These include people with known allergies to Saccharomyces boulardii or Saccharomyces cervisiae, people whose immune system has been compromised by immunosuppression during transplantation, chemotherapy, radiation or immunosuppressive drugs against autoimmune diseases. People with a natural or acquired immunodeficiency, seriously ill people or hospital patients, people with a structural heart disease, people with a vascular catheter or who share a hospital room with a person who has a vascular catheter while taking Saccharomyces boulardii, children or pregnant women should refrain from taking Saccharomyces boulardii (unless they consult a physician before use). Probiotic food supplements may be taken permanently or temporarily with the objective of colonizing the intestine with useful bacteria for the long term.
