The Advanced Probiotic That Gives You More:
BIO–tract ™ Technology
FloraSMART™ utilizes BIO-tract ™ delivery technology which is engineered to
deliver probiotics to their optimal locations. BIO-tract ™ is a patent-pending
controlled delivery technology developed specifically for beneficial
microorganisms. BIO-tract ™ is the first true oral controlled release technology
that utilizes recognized and proven principles from the pharmaceutical industry
to preserve, protect, and deliver its payload from the store shelf, through the
harsh environment of the stomach, and into the intestines where they can be
utilized. After swallowing the tablet, a protective gel layer surrounds the
tablet and effectively isolates the bacteria to reduce any harmful interaction
with the acidic environment in the stomach. Once passing through the stomach, it
releases the organisms in a controlled fashion over time, delivering the living
bacteria to the small intestine so they may populate the intestinal tract.
Individually sealed packets
Each FloraSMART serving is individually packaged in a foil sache (packet) for
traveling convenience and protection.
FloraSMART’s probiotic formula is stable at room temperature because its
probiotics are isolated within the tablets core, thanks to Bio-tract’s
protective layer, resulting in a product that is less susceptible to heat,
moisture, and oxidative stress.
What are probiotics?
The term “probiotic” means supporting life. Probiotics are friendly and
beneficial bacteria. Although there are hundreds of different strains of
bacteria that live in the digestive tract, two of the most prevalent types of
beneficial bacteria are lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium bifidum.
These bacteria (as well as others) are normal inhabitants of the large and small
Why are probiotics so important?
Recent research on probiotics suggests that these friendly bacteria improve
gastrointestinal functions, respiratory and allergy response, and may counter
the negative effects of antibiotic use. Probiotics support our immune systems,
balance intestinal environments and inhibit the growth of pathogenic organisms.
These beneficial bacteria: 1) produce vitamins, 2) aid in absorption of
nutrients, and 3) crowd out bad bacteria and fungus.
Which probiotics are best?
Most commercial probiotic products are made up of multiple species of
Lactobacilli or Bifidobacteria. Some of the Lactobacilli species are resident
(L. acidophilus) and others are transient bacteria (L. casei). Both resident and
transient species are beneficial. Resident species live naturally in the
digestive tract. Transient species provide benefits while they pass through the
digestive system. One strategy is to use a product that contains multiple
resident strains of (L. acidophilus or B. bifidum) bacteria and to use specific,
well-tested transient strains (L. casei) to provide additional benefits.
Why is manufacturing important?
Probiotics are live microorganisms and, as such,
present challenges in maintaining quality and viability throughout different
points of manufacture and distribution. These bacteria are susceptible to
heat, moisture and air. Individually sealing each FloraSMART tablet helps
protect the probiotics from these shipping and storage issues. Beyond
manufacturing and shelf stability, the next biggest challenge is to get the
probiotics through the stomach acid. The acids of the stomach can kill the
beneficial bacteria. It is critical that the bacteria be delivered live into
the intestinal tract. FloraSMART accomplishes this with BIO-tract™ technology.
