Since the majority of products with lactic acid bacteria is sold in tablet form or dairy products, Vita Biosa is a unique opportunity to get an organic lactic acid bacteria product with live active bacteria without any dairy ingredients.On average there are 5-10 billion live microorganisms per 100 ml. Vita Biosa.
Vita Biosa is produced by letting lactic acid bacteria ferment 19 different herbs, all of which are known and used for their beneficial effect on the digestion.
In modern plant medicine either the whole plant or parts of it are used, depending on where the active substances are.
The substances are extracted with water, oil, alcohol or glycerine.
In Vita Biosa water is used to extract the phyto-active substances from the plants to provide the product with the desired effect. For instance, bitter substances, oils, alkaloids, anti-oxidants, sugars, acids, mucilage, plant hormones, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and many more.
THE ORGANIC ACIDS
Organic acids play a significant role in the body. The beneficial bacteria in the intestine produce a range of organic acids as part of their way of competing for space. The acidic environment inhibits pathogenic bacteria from thriving, while it provides optimal conditions for beneficial bacteria, such as lactic acid bacteria. Pathogenic bacteria are usually putrefaction bacteria. In contrast to beneficial bacteria, they thrive in an alkaline environment. Putrefaction bacteria produce substances, for instance ammonia, which neutralizes acid and lessen the acidity. Ammonia is toxic to the body and in high concentrations it affects the central nerves system. There are two types of Organic Acids found in Vita Biosa:Lactic acid is a carboxylic acid with the chemical name C3H6O3. Lactic acid is primarily known, because a longrange of organisms form it under anaerobe (oxygen free) conditions by a conversion of glucose. Lactic acid has many beneficial effects, partially as an anti-microbial and –fungal substance, but also as energy supply for muscle cells, heart and brain. The purpose of an intake of lactic acid is that it stabilizes the pH-value and that it is used as a signal substance inthe microbiome ´s cooperation with the immune system.Acetic acid has the chemical name CH3COOH, and it is known as the ingredient in vinegar, which gives it its acidic taste and sharp odor. It is, however, also used because of its preservative abilities, as it creates an acidic environment, which suppresses pathogenic microorganisms. The purpose of an intake of acetic acid is that it stabilizes the pH-value and that it stimulates the blood flow and bowel movements, which ensures the foods flow through the system.
