It is possible to extend the lifetime of a probiotic by taking it with a meal or just before it. This results from the fact that the low pH of the stomach may negatively affect the capsule casing and a meal has a buffering influence on the gastric contents and shows protective properties. The best option is a complete meal containing proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

Greens - under this name there are hidden matrices of plant origin components in the form of powder concentrates (to replace fresh fruits and vegetables): fruits, vegetables and some herbs contain active biological components, such as : bioflavonoids, microelements and vitamins, which can complement the diet short in unprocessed plant origin products. Concentrates of fruit, vegetable and herbs should be used in low-calorie weight-loss diet, during a heavy strength exercising (hard workouts), and as supplementation of shortages of fresh fruits and vegetables. They are strengthening and vitaminizing.
Barley grass - powdered green shoots of barley (Hordeum sativum), received as a result of freeze-drying process. It contains many nutrients such as amino acids, minerals, vitamins and other antioxidant and alkaline compounds, allowing to maintain the acid alkaline balance of the organism. It supports the functioning of the whole body, with particular emphasis on the immune system. Used in cosmetics industry, but mostly in the nutritional and functional, mineralizing and vitamin enriched supplements.
Probiotics - micro-organisms having beneficial effects on the organism. To be classified as probiotic, the following conditions must be met: immunity to digestive juices and the ability to nest in the digestive tract. The basic probiotics include lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus) and yeast (Saccharomyces boulardii). They increase the immunity of the body (also show a potential in the treatment of cancer), prevent of bacterial infection, diarrhea and enhance assimilability of certain food products (including lactose - milk sugar). Natural source of obtaining them are dairy products (cheese, yogurt, kefir), silage (cucumbers, cabbage) and some meats. They come in the form of mono-preparation supplements (containing selected strains of dairy cultures) or in multi-component supplements (e.g. in addition to protein supplements) available at www.muscle-zone.pl

What is Bifidobacterium lactis?
Bifidobacterium lactis is a strain of probiotic bacteria capable of producing lactic acid which are classifed as gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria. They populate naturally the end part of the ileum and large intestine. Their main function is to compete for nutrients and adhesion sites with pathogenic bacteria. Their properties can be thus desribed as antidiarrhoeal, regenerating the intestinal mucosa, helping the body take in more micronutrients and regulating intestinal peristalsis.
This bacteria strain has also the ability to produce lactic acid from lactose or other substances which will hinder indirectly (by acidifying the environment) or directly (by killing bacteria) the growth and survival of such pathogenic bacteria as Salmonella or Helicobacter pylori.
The supplementation with probiotic strains helps restore healthy intestinal microflora which is nowadays disrupted by many negative environmental factors.
Lactobacillus brevis – what is it?
Lactobacillus brevis is a Gram-positive bacteria species of the Lactobacillus genus. There are 16 different strains of L. Brevis bacteria.
The bacterium is used for restoring homeostasis in intestinal microbiota. It can be also helpful in promoting immunity and treatment of vaginal inflammation and urinary system infections. Just like other Lactobacillus bacteria, it can produce lactic acid from carbohydrates in the process of fermentation. Thus it creates slightly acidic environment, which hinders the survival of many pathogens. There are many indications that the use of L. brevis during antibiotic treatment, aiming at the fight against Clostridium difficile, can raise its effectiveness and reduce the risk of bothersome complications.
What is Lactobacillus casei?
Lactobacillus casei is a bacterium of the genus Lactobacillus which ferments lactic acid. The substrates for lactic acid production are sugar compounds, such as glucose or lactose. Due to its ability to break down the disaccharide lactose to simpler carbohydrates, the bacterium can reduce dairy intolerance. It is found in the urinary bladder where it thus competes with pathogens of the urinary system and reduces infections and the incidence of cancer.
Lactobacillus casei supports the treatment of ailments associated with stomach ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori and treats diarrhoea related to Clostridium difficile infection. Promising results of studies were obtained in relation to the influence of this probiotic strain on the occurrence of allergies. Therefore, its positive effect has been demonstrated on acne, dermatitis, respiratory tract infections, problems with oral cavity and rheumatoid arthritis. By controlling digestion, it helps to maintain a healthy cholesterol ratio.
Lactobacillus casei is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is Lactobacillus plantarum?
Lactobacillus plantarum is a strain of gram-positive, motionless, rod-shaped bacteria which ferment milk in the intestinal environment. These probotic strains are believed to be the most resistant to adverse conditions prevailing in different sections of the digestive tract. Apart from the small intestine, they were detected in the oral cavity and even vagina where they compete with pathogenic microorganisms, protecting the body from bacterial infections, viruses and mycoses.
They affect the vitality of pathogens and synthesis of compounds beneficial to the health of, e.g. lactic acid and short-chain fatty acids. As a result, it normalises intestinal function, thereby ensuring proper digestion and nutrient absorption. By using the lactase enzyme, it has the ability to break down milk sugar which is the cause of many unpleasant digestive ailments in the majority of adults.
It is used in medicine for treating irritable bowel syndrome, problems with digestion and Crohn’s disease. It is used in supplementation as one of the components of complex probiotics available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is Lactobacillus salivarius?
Lactobacillus salivarius is a probiotic bacterium found mainly in the colon, small intestine and vagina, but it has been also detected in the oral cavity. It competes on populated areas with pathogens for a source of nutrients and adhesion site, hereby supporting other friendly bacteria strains in fighting pathogens. By adhering to the intestinal mucosa, it supports the intestinal barrier function. It has also a significant immunomodulatory action. It improves the balance between Th1 and Th1 helper cells in asthmatics, showing consequently an anti-inflammatory action. It inhibits the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines and supports the treatment of many skin allergies.
By producing lactic acid, bacteriocins and small amounts of hydrogen peroxide, it inhibits the growth or reduces the number of fungi of the genus Candida, E.coli, Salmonella ssp., Streptococcus pyogenes and Helicobacter pylori. Along with Bifidobacterium breve, it promotes the removal of Streptococcus mutans in the oral cavity which is responsible for tooth decay, dental plaque formation and mouth ulcers.
Promising results have been also observed in reducing pain. It results from the fact that Lactobacillus salivarius has the ability to induce the expression of receptors associated with pain relief, in particular OPRM1 in the intestines. What is more, it influences the brain-gut connection, hereby improving gut health after taking antibiotics or damaged by pathogens. As a result, it can contribute to improving cognitive functions, reducing depressive states and anxiety. It has also shown a beneficial impact on the cardiovascular system by reducing cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
Lactobacillus salivarius is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is Lactobacillus paracasei?
Lactobacillus paracasei belongs to health-promoting probiotic bacteria. They help avoid unpleasant digestive ailments because they have the ability to break down lactose as well as produce many enzymes improving micronutrient absorption. They fight with harmful bacteria such as: Helicobacter pylori, Salmonella enterica, Campylobacter jejuni, and reduces also negative effects of Candida albicans and Listeria monocytogenes. What is more, this bacteria strain can decrease the number of bacteria in the oral cavity causing tooth decay – Streptococcus mutants.
Bacteria of this kind modulates the immune system which contributes to reducing allergies. It has also a positive effect on the production of GABA neurotransmitter, thereby helping control properly the activity of neurons and muscle tone.

Lactobacillus bulgaricus – what is it?
Lactobacillus bulgaricus (known before as Lactobacillus delbrueckii) is a Gram-positive bacteria species, able to convert lactose into lactic acid. It is non-motile and does not form spores. It is present in digestive system of mammals and fermented products. It is one of the bacteria used for yoghurt fermentation. It was first identified in 1905 by the Bulgarian doctor Stamen Grigorov.
It is classified as a probiotic, so that it has positive influence on the human body system, i.a. by supporting the fight against pathogenic bacteria and promoting restoration of homeostasis after microbiome disorders. It can be also potentially beneficial for the functioning of the immune system. It is helpful in fight against diarrhoea caused by antibiotics and can improve digestion and absorption of nutrients. There are some indications that it can improve condition of people suffering from bowels inflammations.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus contained in many complex probiotic preparations which can be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl
Bifidobacterium bifidum – what is it?
Bifidobacterium bifidum is a Gram-positive bacteria strain of the Bifidobacterium genus. It is non-motile, anaerobic and rod-shaped. In the human body system, it is present mainly in the large intestine, but also in the final parts of the small intestine, vagina and mother’s milk. It is one of the most commonly used strains in probiotic preparations.
The benefits of the use of probiotics containing this bacterium include smaller risk of diarrhoea, induced both by infections and antibiotics, as well as lower risk of infections caused by Escherichia Coli bacteria. It can be also helpful in restoring bacterial homeostasis in vagina. Bifidobacterium bifidum can contribute to better nutrition of the whole organism, because of its ability to produce particular vitamins from B and K groups. It can be also helpful in regulation of respiratory system functions, thanks to the reduction in histamine production and improvement in antibodies response.
