Codeflor IMMUNO is a dietary supplement of live lactic acid bacteria with Vitamin D indicated to provide an additional supply of these nutrients in case of deficiency or increased need.
PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS: probiotics promote the balance of intestinal flora.
NUTRITIONAL EFFECTS: Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
The species of lactic ferments present in Codeflor IMMUNO are:
- The lactic bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri carries out important functions in the human intestine, among which the main ones are those of rebalancing the intestinal bacterial flora, thus returning it to a condition of eubiosis (when the bacterial flora and the organism live in perfect harmony), preventing the development of bacteria pathogens, improve digestive functions and help improve immune defences by stimulating immunoglobulin production and macrophage activity. Specifically, then it is also able to produce a bacteriocin (natural antibiotic) that counteracts the development of pathogenic bacterial strains and makes them more easily eliminated.
- Saccaromyces boulardii that acts as a temporary saprophytic flora protects the intestinal system keeping it in a state of good functioning. In the intestine, this yeast produces lactic acid and B vitamins and removes harmful yeast strains.
Some studies have allowed to highlight the different mechanisms of action that S. boulardii uses to eradicate pathogens, to inhibit the action of toxins and to restore the absorption capacity of the intestinal mucosa while other clinical studies have also shown which is useful in the prevention and treatment of diarrhea associated with antibiotic therapy.
Vitamin D plays a crucial role in the activation of the immune system: without it, in fact, T cells are not able to react and fight the most serious infections that threaten the organism as this vitamin favours the processes of differentiation of the T lymphocyte cells and seems to take part also in the processes of production and release of chemotactic substances such as cytokines, indispensable factors for the activation of the other cells of the immune system and which get involved in the second phase during the protection of the organism from both bacterial and viral infections.
