The medicine Pro-Symbioflor®
- contains the natural intestinal bacteria Enterococcus faecalis and Escherichia coli, in inactive form.
- helps with complaints of stomach- intestinal function.
- trains the immune system
- suitable for infants
The bacteria Enterococcus faecalis has a natural training effect on the immune system.
The biggest concentration of immune cells are to be found in the intestine. Invaders first come into contact with the immune system in this area. This contact activates the immune cells and stimulates them into spreading throughout the body. By means of the bloodstream they allocate themselves to the various mucous membranes.
