NICS Product – Natural Immune Control System – NICS
Lactulose is a synthetic disaccharide consisting of D-galactose and fructose. When taken orally, it reaches the colon in virtually unchanged form, exerting its effect there.
Why is lactulose important?
Lactulose contributes to the acceleration of intestinal function.
Dextrin is a collective name for carbohydrate and starch isomeric compounds that form about a transition between starch and sugar. Nutriose is a soluble fiber.
Oligosaccharides are sweet-tasting compounds composed of some monosaccharides. Fructooligosaccharides are water-soluble fibers. These fibers are synthesized by the fungal species Aspergillus nigricans in the presence of sugar or sucrose.
Oligosaccharides are sweet-tasting compounds composed of some monosaccharides. Galactooligosaccharides consist of short chains of galactose molecules.
Oligosaccharides are sweet-tasting compounds composed of some monosaccharides. Isomalto-ogilog saccharide is an indigestible fiber.
Gum arabic or gum arabic is a gummy secretion of some acacia species native to Africa. Chemically related to pectins. 95% polysaccharide and the remainder a mixture of oligosaccharides and glycoproteins. Freely soluble in water.
Xyl oligosaccharide (XOS):
Oligosaccharides are sweet-tasting compounds composed of some monosaccharides. The xylo-oligosaccharide is highly soluble in water, a low molecular weight, indigestible carbohydrate.
Topinambur (Jerusalem artichoke):
Jerusalem artichoke or Jerusalem artichoke is a tuberous, perennial herb belonging to the family of nests. It can grow up to two, two and a half meters in height. It came to Europe from North America. It is closely related to sunflowers. It tastes similar to potatoes, but all the sweeter. Its tubers contain mainly inulin, with little starch.
None of the 9 fibers mentioned above are digestible, they reach the colon unchanged after ingestion, they act there, helping the growth of good bacteria.
Bromelain – Pineapple Extract:
Bromelain is a naturally occurring enzyme in pineapple. Pineapple is a plant native to Central and South America. Like papain, the enzyme is able to break down animal and human proteins.
Papain – Papaya Extract:
Papain is a protein-degrading enzyme in papaya fruit. Papaya is a plant native to Central America, but is now found in many parts of the world.
Piperine – Black Pepper Extract:
Piperine is an organic compound that is yellowish or colorless and strongly pepper-flavored. This gives the pepper its characteristic taste. Its name comes from the Latin and Greek names of pepper. It can help the nutrients be absorbed by the body. Black pepper is a shrub native to the tropics, a spice known and sought after since ancient times.
Inulin and live flora / Probiotic and Prebiotic:
The living flora is made up of beneficial, living microorganisms that help maintain a healthy balance of the intestinal flora by surviving the acidic medium in the gastrointestinal tract. Our products contain several live flora and Inulin, which promotes their growth, in high germ counts.
A Probiotic also known as the living flora of Greek origin, meaning: for life. In today’s sense, RB Parker first used the term probiotic in 1974 as the organisms and substances responsible for microbial balance in the intestinal tract. Probiotics are characterized by their human origin, non-pathogens, resistance to gastric acid, bile, and digestive enzymes in saliva, pancreas, and intestinal fluids. They retain their resilience during the shelf life of the food and during technological processes. In addition, probiotics are able to adhere to mucosal cells, have an antimicrobial effect against potential pathogens, and reduce the adhesion of pathogenic microbes to the mucosal surface. Most probiotics are lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria.Most of the best-known strains of probiotic lactic acid bacteria are Lactobacillus, a smaller part belong to the genus Streptococcus.
Prebiotics are natural nutrients that are typically the exclusive nutrients in probiotics and therefore help them to multiply and become predominant. In the oral cavity and in the gastrointestinal tract, prebiotics are not broken down by digestive enzymes, so they can enter the colon undigested. Prebiotics are dietary fiber, but they are soluble in water, so they are also the most excellent dietary fiber. In addition to their dietary fiber function, their real benefit lies in the fact that they are the exclusive foods of probiotics. Because there is already little digestible food in the colon, i.e., there is a relative lack of food, the prebiotics consumed offer an opportunity for human-friendly intestinal bacteria to multiply.
In their natural state, they occur in many foods, such as Jerusalem artichokes, chicory roots, onions, garlic, leeks, artichokes, whole grains, wheat, bananas, flax, spinach, cabbage, chard, mustard, berries, legumes, and more.
One of the types of prebiotics is Inulins, actually a dietary fiber that reaches the colon undigested, increasing the proliferation of probiotics, their predominance.
Their role: digestion, balance of intestinal flora.
Our body is connected to the outside world through our largest intestinal system, about 7-9 meters long. Thus, it serves as a potential attack site for pathogens and toxic substances. There are normally about 200-400 bacterial strains in the gut. In fetal life, beneficial bacteria predominate in 95-98%. A healthy gut flora provides protection against a number of pathogens, ensures the integrity of the intestinal mucosa, and helps the body absorb the nutrients it needs. They produce many vitamins that are essential for the body. If the defense mechanisms of the digestive system are weakened, it can interfere with absorption processes, among other things.
Probiotics, in order to be able to affect their environment, are a prerequisite for the presence of a large number, which means at least 108 cfu of organisms per gram in the intestinal fluid.
What does cfu mean?
cfu: colony forming unit per milliliter, number of viable microorganisms (germ count). The amount of bacteria in the compositions is usually expressed in such units. However, Inulin is expressed in mg. An appropriate dose of a minimum of 109 cfu is accepted.
What is an effective live flora preparation?
– The growth of probiotics is promoted by prebiotics, so the product should contain Inulin or fructooligosaccharides.
– They are resistant to the effects of stomach acid, bile and digestive enzymes, so that beneficial bacteria can reach the colon alive, where they can multiply and stick. An essential criterion is that the bacteria retain their viability as they pass through the gastrointestinal tract.
– Good live flora preparations contain a minimum of 5-6 strains, as we want to replace the diverse multiculture of intestinal bacteria.
– They retain their resilience during the warranty period and during technological processes.
– Contains an adequate number of germs, a minimum of 10 recommended by experts8 or 10 9 colony forming units.
