A primary objective of probiotic therapy is to provide therapeutic resistance against pathogen colonization in the GI tract. Prescript-Assist® is unique in this regard as its constituent microflora are representative of those found resident along the healthy human GI tract (vs. most common probiotic products).
Its beneficial/healthy microflora, coupled with a proprietary prebiotic, provide for robust maintenance/enhancement of gut microflora and resistance to pathogenesis. Prescript-Assist’s® microflora arguably contribute to better health in their in-vitro and in-vivo demonstrated abilities to produce vital nutritional components (antioxidants, enzymes, etc).
Quite unlike most probiotics that incorporate easily degradable lactic acid based microorganisms, the utilization of Soil Based Organisms in Prescript-Assist® provides for a pH resistant (able to survive trip through the stomach) and shelf stable (does not need refrigeration) product.
Note: Prescript-Assist contains a Colony Forming Unit (CFU) count of 145 million per capsule. This figure is not comparable to CFU's in lacto- and bifido- based probiotic products, where large numbers (billions) are used to try to rectify the massive loss (99%+) during manufacturing, storage, and via stomach acid degredation. Soiled-based organisms, such as Prescript-Assist, are a totally differnt class of pre- and probiotic, so comparisons on a CFU basis cannot be made.
