Diversity of strains, total bacterial count, and protection of the probiotics are key elements for a powerful probiotic product. The digestive tract is home to 400-500 different types of microbes. With such tremendous diversity, it is important to supplement with not just one strain, but numerous strains, so that the most comprehensive benefit is received. Many products on the market deliver a high total probiotic count, but they are only coming from one or two strains. This yields a product which does not deliver comprehensive support. According to research published in Food Research International, probiotic products which deliver multiple strains can offer more benefits that a single strain. Market Hong Kong’s NutriClean Probiotics delivers 10 billion CFUs from 10 different strains with patented LiveBac®* and BIO- tract ®** technologies to help keep the probiotics viable during both bottling and throughout the digestive process.
Each strain has a unique purpose and the strains work synergistically to support bowel health. NutriClean Probiotics contains 10 carefully selected bacterial strains – six lactobacilli strains and four bifidobacterium strains – each with a unique role to help your body maintain bacterial balance and optimal bowel health.

Clinical research has shown that probiotics support bowel health and much more. Probiotics help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract and are increasingly important in the diet as we continue to rely on processed foods. Probiotics help to counter the negative effects that processed foods and numerous other factors may have on the bacterial balance in the gastrointestinal tract.
L. plantarum has been shown to promote optimal digestive health. L. plantarum competes for nutrients which the unhealthy bacteria live on. It is able to help reduce unhealthy bacteria (naturally present in the body) while preserving vital nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. One of the talents of L. plantarum is its ability to synthesize L-lysine, an essential amino acid which is required for countless functions in the body. Lactobacillus acidophilus L. acidophilus is one of the most highly studied and widely used probiotic organisms. It is a strain of lactic acid producing, rod-shaped microbes that have numerous benefits for bowel health. L. acidophilus produces vitamin K, lactase, and anti-microbial substances such as acidolin, acidophilin, lactocidin, and bacteriocin. Due to the multiple functions of this microorganism, scientists have discovered that administering L. acidophilus orally helps maintain the proper balance within the digestive tract. L. acidophilus has been shown to support bowel health. The lactase that L. acidophilus creates is an enzyme that assists in the breakdown of lactose into simple sugars, which can support lactose metabolism.
L. rhamnosus is a strain of probiotics that aids in balancing the gastrointestinal microflora. It is one of the most intensely studied bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. One of the remarkable things about L. rhamnosus is its ability to tolerate and even thrive in the harsh acidic conditions normally found in the stomach. Research has shown that L. rhamnosus helps maintain the integrity of the stomach lining.
L. salivarius resides in the mouth and small intestine. It has been shown to be effective in helping to reduce at least five potentially unhealthy bacteria in the mouth that are involved in producing dental plaque. L. salivarius appears to support homeostasis within the intestines.
L. casei is a rod-shaped species of Lactobacillus found in milk, cheese and dairy. It is a lactic acid producer like other species within the Lactobacillus genus and has been found to assist in the colonization of beneficial bacteria and can help relieve occasional diarrhea. L. casei is active in a broad temperature and pH range. It can be found naturally in the mouth and intestine of humans. It is a lactase producer which aids in healthy lactose metabolism and promoting bowel health.
L. helveticus has been well studied for many years and is commonly used in the production of Swiss-type cheeses to enhance flavor. Several beneficial probiotic effects are reported such as the ability to survive in the stomach and to reach the intestine alive, helping to support optimal lactose metabolism and helping to minimize the duration of occasional diarrhea. A number of studies have been conducted in regard to the myriad of potential health benefits offered by L. helveticus .
Bifidobacterium are rod-shaped microbes that have been identified as the most important organisms in the intestine for providing barrier protection. Like Lactobacillus , Bifidobacterium are lactic acid producing microbes found in fermented foods such as yogurt and cheese. Despite the fact that when we are born Bifidobacterium makes up approximately 95% of the total gut population, the Bifidobacterium population decreases in our intestines as adults and then declines further as we advance in age. B. bifidum is the predominant bacteria strain found in the microflora of breast-fed infants. It is believed that B. bifidum contributes to the bowel health of breast-fed infants.
B. longum is a branched, rod-shaped bacterium that competes with other bacteria for attachment sites within the bowel. It has a high resistance to gastric acid and shares similar functions as B. bifidum .
B. breve is another branched, rod-shaped bacterium. The job of B. breve in the bowel is to ferment sugars and produce lactic acid as well as acetic acid. B. breve is a champion among probiotic bacteria due to its superior ability to metabolize many types of food.
Bifidobacterium infantis B. infantis is a probiotic bacterium that inhabits the intestine of both infants and adults. According to a study sponsored by P&G Health Sciences Institute and published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, B. infantis may be beneficial for bowel health. B. infantis plays an important role in basic digestion, proper metabolism and overall well-being.
