Floraphage Supports Normal Urinary Tract Health
Did you know that most Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are caused by specific bacteria that we consume in our food every day? Many people are plagued by chronic UTIs, but contrary to popular belief, this common problem is not due to bad habits or poor hygiene. When you consume food that contains certain types of unwanted bacteria, your body is able to flush out these bacteria through the urinary tract, which sometimes causes uncomfortable symptoms. Floraphage supports comfortable urinary tract function.
Floraphage Efficacy Testing and Results
To determine whether Floraphage works, especially when combined with probiotic products, we conducted several laboratory tests. Floraphage was tested in conjunction with four popular probiotic supplements to determine its ability to increase the potency or growth of each respective product.
Each product was grown in a nutrient-rich broth to mimic normal digestive conditions, until each product's bacteria reached a specified value using optical density (OD). OD measures the amount of light that is able to scatter through a mixture, which was used to verify that the bacteria for each product had started to grow.
Once each product reached an OD of .2 (indicating that the bacteria were growing and no longer dormant), a one milliliter sampling of each product was grown with Floraphage and one was grown without (control group). Each of the four tested products showed improvement when grown with Floraphage.
The average increase in colony forming unit (CFU) activity (measurement of probiotic bacteria growth) for the four products was 2,400% versus the control group (without Floraphage). Overall, Floraphage was able to increase the growth rate of supplemented probiotics by an average of 24 times compared with the control group.
These results show that Floraphage is an excellent product to take in conjunction with a probiotic to maximize the benefits of supplemented beneficial bacteria. It's also helpful for those who don't take probiotics in order to maximize indigenous probiotic growth.
The following bacteria showed significant growth when combined with Floraphage, compared to growth without Floraphage:
- B. bifidum
- B. breve
- B. animalis
- B. longum
- L. acidophilus
- L. paracasei
- L. casei
- L. rhamnosus
- Lc. lactis
- B. subtilis
