Mutaflor Probiotics - 100 Capsules

$119.95

Mutaflor® is a probiotic (capsule) which contains a viable non-pathogenic strain of Escherichia coli (E coli), named Escherichia coli Nissle 1917. It was first isolated in 1917 by Professor Alfred Nissle from the faeces of a soldier during the First World War. It had been noticed that a particular soldier “in contrast to the large majority of his comarades, had suffered neither from dysentery nor from any other intestinal diseases”. Nissle went on to further demonstrate its ability to exert beneficial effects on various gastrointestinal disorders. [1]

Mutaflor® is a probiotic (capsule) which contains a viable non-pathogenic strain of Escherichia coli (E coli), named Escherichia coli Nissle 1917. It was first isolated in 1917 by Professor Alfred Nissle from the faeces of a soldier during the First World War. It had been noticed that a particular soldier “in contrast to the large majority of his comarades, had suffered neither from dysentery nor from any other intestinal diseases”. Nissle went on to further demonstrate its ability to exert beneficial effects on various gastrointestinal disorders. [1] As one of the first colonizers of the infant gut, Escherichia coli plays a vital role in the establishment and maintenance of a healthy gut and provides a microbial barrier against pathogenic bacteria. It is also responsible for the production of many essential metabolites. [1, 2]

Mutaflor® aids in the relief and management of chronic constipation, it may help to increase the number of bowel movements per day and the number of days on which bowel movements occur in those with chronic constipation. In addition, the characteristics of Escherichia coli strain Nissile 1917 include:

  • the ability to colonize
  • antagonistic activity – Inhibition of growth and or killing of pathogens
  • anti-invasive – prevention of colonisation in the gut by pathogens
  • synthesis of endogenous antimicrobial peptides-defensins
  • mucosal integrity – contributing to luminal metabolism and stability of intestinal milieu-enhanced epithelial barrier function stimulation of colonic mucosa [1]

    Please note: We recommend you consult with your health care practitioner before taking Mutaflor®. Constipation may be associated with other medical conditions. Any change in bowel habits should be discussed with your practitioner to exclude these, as further investigation may be required. Dosage: For adults, the usual dose is 2 x capsules 3 times daily for the first 2 days. From the third day, onwards the dose is 4 x capsules daily, for up to 8 weeks. For those suffering from chronic constipation (that has persisted for years) Mutaflor® should be regarded as a health-maintenance treatment and the therapy therefore be repeated periodically.

    As with any supplement, dosages and results may vary with each individual and there is always the exception. However, most individuals can use the above as a starting guide.
