Improving Intestinal Integrity
These 3 important and potent probiotic strains have been trusted and clinically proven in hospitals for over 30 years. They have been selected for their abilities to improve and maintain healthy digestion, and also undertake positive action with our immune system. NAG plays a critical role in forming new tissue and maintaining cells in close proximity to form a proper barrier.
This combination of beneficial probiotics and NAG work in tandem to help rebuild the compromised gut lining, helping to address conditions such as colitis, celiac, candida, leaky gut, and Crohn’s. It can help reduce inflammation and does not require refrigeration.
Help protect yourself from the outside world.
To stay healthy, you need complete protection against infections, superbugs, and food-borne bacteria. Fight foes with friendly bacteria.
The good, the bad, and the ugly…
You carry around about three pounds of bacteria in your intestines all of the time, and even bad bacteria like E.coli and salmonella live happily inside you without making you ill. These also include beneficial bacteria, without which you wouldn’t survive. Good bacteria help defend your body against pathogens including salmonella, yeast infections, mold, food poisoning and viruses. They live in your GI tract, on your skin, mouth, nose, anus and vagina. In fact, these non-human life forms make up about 90% of you; there are 10 times more bacterial cells in your body than human cells.
But good and bad can get out of balance due to daily life situations – such as eating too much sugar or processed food, which feed destructive microbes, or even touching a doorknob infected with a virus. It’s caused from abuse of antibiotics, pollution, and changes to our soil. Invasions from pathogenic bad bacteria can disrupt your digestive system, immune system, weight, skin health, and exacerbate allergic reactions, fatigue and autoimmune diseases. Enerex PRO BIOTIKA probiotics contains potent live cultures to provide a protective shield against pathogens.
Enerex’s PRO BIOTIKA + NAG contains 1 billion live cultures of bacteria strains called Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium longum.
Enerex chose these three types of bacteria because they have been researched to be optimum components of a balanced intestinal environment. PRE & PRO BIOTIKA are obtained from living human micro-organisms, perfected through decades of laboratory culturing. They have been processed to retain viability at room temperature, meaning unlike many other probiotic supplements, they do no need to be refrigerated. These particular strains are used in over 30,000 hospitals and clinics worldwide.
Are probiotics enough? What can you do to improve their benefits?
To help ensure that the beneficial bacteria proliferate, and to get the greatest therapeutic benefits, you can combine probiotics with natural substances that repair inflamed or damaged tissue of the digestive system to create a healthy home for the new probiotics. And soluble fibre acts as a “prebiotic,” and is broken down to become the primary food for your probiotics. PRO BIOTIKA probiotic is enhanced with N-Acetylglucosamine (NAG) for digestive support and repair; and this formula has a prebiotic called FOS (Fructo-oligosaccharides).
What is NAG?
NAG (N-Acetylglucosamine) is a natural part of the mucous membranes in your digestive, respiratory and urinary tracts. NAG helps to - protect and “rebuild” these areas, help with cell growth, and keep the cells in close proximity to each other to ensure a tight barrier of this tissue. NAG is an “amino sugar,” and is a ready-made building material for tissue repair.
What is FOS?
FOS (Fructo-oligosaccharides) is a prebiotic made from inulin, which is a very healthy dietary fibre. Inulin, made from chicory root, helps to keep the stomach, intestines and bowels healthy by nurturing the growth of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus. This fibre also aids in bowel regularity, which helps to prevent a build-up of unhealthy bacteria that thrive on the toxins created from a sluggish elimination system.
A gut reaction?
Recent studies have shown that probiotics can help to relieve inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), reduce inflammation in ulcerative colitis, prevent and lessen diarrhea, prevent and manage skin diseases (including eczema), reduce infections including Candida albicans yeast, and decrease constipation.

DIRECTION OF USE
ADULTS: Take 1 capsule 3 times daily with meals or as directed by a health care practitioner. Take at least 2-3 hours before or after antibiotics.
Do not use if you are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhoea or severe abdominal pain, or if you have an immune-compromised condition (e.g. AIDS, lymphoma, patients undergoing long-term corticosteroid treatment). Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Discontinue use and consult a health care practitioner if symptoms of digestive upset (e.g. diarrhoea) occur, worsen, or persist beyond 3 days.
Store in a cool, dry place. Keep out of reach of children.
Enerex uses PETE plastic containers, a thermoplastic polymer resin. PETE plastic provides a superior moisture and oxygen barrier compared to the more common HDPE plastic that most vitamin manufacturers use.
