What Are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are healthy, non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth and activity of healthy bacteria in the colon. Their structure is generally composed of indigestible carbohydrates (oligosaccharides & polysaccharides), peptides and proteins, as these ingredients undergo bacterial fermentation in the colon, providing energy and nutrients for the proliferation of probiotics as well as contributing to the growth of the intestinal mucous membrane.
Probvioptal contains the prebiotic Short-chain Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) (NutraFlora®)
What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics are living micro-organisms that produce beneficial health effects. They live in the intestinal flora, aiding in food digestion and fighting for space with pathogenic micro-organisms (harmful bacteria). This helps reduce intestinal colonization of harmful bacteria, promoting microbial balance (flora) for the gastrointestinal tract.
Probviotal is an innovative Prebiotic-Probiotic (synbiotic) in vegetable Vcaps® Capsule in capsule (DuocapTM), designed with exclusive Licaps® technology to contribute to the balance of the intestinal flora.
Probvioptal contains 2 vegetable Vcaps* capsules:
- An internal capsule containing the probiotics Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-14 in a concentration of 1 Billion CFU (live bacteria culture); contained in the inner 2nd capsule.
- An external capsule containing the prebiotic component (Fructooligosaccharides – NutraFlora*) that stimulates probiotic growth. The capsule has a Nitrogen bubble to flush out air/oxygen in order to aid in the preservation of the probiotics.
HEALTH & WELNESS:
Both internal and external-capsules are Vcaps®, the main characteristics of which are: made from vegetarian raw materials with low humidity content, which reduces humidity migration and enables activation of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in a full dose of probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-14 (1 billion CFU) available in Probvioptal which is released into the small intestine.
How does Licaps® technology work?
This unique technology protects the probiotic (Lactobacillus acidophillus) and ensures that it remains intact and protected from stomach acid during the digestion process.
After the complete digestion of the external capsule, the probiotic reaches the small intestine and the colon in a single dose, in the most favorable conditions for the survival of the beneficial bacteria.

Why is microbiota balance important?
The intestinal flora (microbiota) is composed of about 100 trillion micro-organisms, some of which are considered beneficial (probiotic) and others harmful, pathogenic bacteria.
A microbial imbalance of the icroflora, also known as Dybiosis, results from increased levels of harmful bacteria and reduced levels of beneficial bacteria; this leads to a variety of diseases such as diarrhea, colitis, constipation, food-related allergies and inflammatory bowel disease, among others.
What are some of the factors that affect microbiota balance?
- Poor nutrition
- Antibiotic use
- Intestinal diseases
