Dysphagia (swallowing difficulty) and tube feeding is a real problem, and probably greater than you can imagine. Together, they affect nearly 15.5 million Americans. 1 in 25 people will experience some form of dysphagia in their lifetime, and this number rises to 22% in those 50 years and older.
Whether this condition is temporary or permanent, it is essential to provide this population and their health professionals with suitable and adapted probiotic solutions that truly answer their specific everyday need.
As opposed to our probiotic capsules, in which our bacteria are protected by the delayed-release technology, our liquid probiotic, BiomePRO 100 billion, boasts unique properties that allows it to survive in extreme conditions of the gastrointestinal tract without external support:
1. ADAPTATIVE Our strains are lactic acid bacteria. By their nature, they adapt easily to low and high pH habitats like the stomach and the gut.
2. RESILIENT Unlike powder-form probiotics, which are weakened by the freeze-drying process, our bacteria remain strong and healthy.
3. PROTECTIVE Rice protein is used. This ferment slightly decreases the stomach's acidity and helps protect the bacteria from gastric acid.
