Propio-Fidus: Detailed Information

  • DATA- 1 Effect to promote the growth of bifidobacteria in the intestines

  • DATA- 2 Effect on constipation and diarrhea

  • DATA- 3 Proof or activity in the intestines

DATA-1
Effect to promote the growth of bifidobacteria in the intestines
Summary

Eight normal volunteers consumed Propio-Fidus for 14 days.

Results

Bifidobacteria in the intestines increased more than 5 times. With the activity to selectively promote the growth of bifidobacteria, Propio-Fidus is expected to be highly effective in improving intestinal environment.

DATA-2
Effect on constipation and diarrhea
Summary

Sixty subjects with diarrhea and constipation took Propio-Fidus for 8 weeks.

A questionnaire concerning intestinal environment and abdominal discomfort was conducted periodically.

Results

Improvement of diarrhea and constipation was achieved.

Subjects started to report improvement on the first round of questionnaire (Day 20). After 8 weeks, about 80% of the subjects reported remarkable improvement.

With the activity to selectively promote the growth of bifidobacteria, Propio-Fidus is expected to be highly effective in helping patients feel better.

DATA-3
Proof or activity in the intestines
Summary

Feces from normal volunteers who took Propio-Fidus were subjected to DNA analysis (real-time RT-PCR) to monitor the expression of genes coding the enzymes related to the metabolic activity of Propio-Fidus.

Results

The study confirmed that propionic acid bacteria lived and preformed metabolism (expressed their genes) in the intestines after consumption of Propio-Fidus. These data proved the intestinal production of substances that boost the population of bifidobacteria. Propio-Fidus is a probiotic agent that has been shown to reach the intestines alive and work hard there.
