Product Characteristics
Gut microbiome can directly affect immune system, metabolism and detoxification. Probiotics can boost immunity and rejuvenate.

After the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, gastrointestinal discomfort has became more frequent in majority of people. This phenomenon is called “Digestive Symptoms of Coronavirus”, which is related to the overgrowth of intestinal harmful bacteria. Symptoms include abdominal pain, changes in bowel habit, nausea, indigestion, bloating and gastroesophageal reflux, etc. Recent research prove that Lactobacillus acidophilus plays a key role in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) in COVID-19 patients[1]. Bifidobacteria such as Bifidobacterium longum can help reduce and prevent the symptoms of Long-COVID, especially gastrointestinal discomfort such as abdominal pain, diarrhea and nausea[2].

Researches by local universities pointed out that 85% of Hong Kong people lack Bifidobacterium adolescentis. Clinical studies also found that B. adolescentis can regulate antibody response after vaccination and play a key role in regulating the efficacy of vaccine[3]. There are also research data showing that COVID-19 patients lack several species of Bifidobacteria, which is related to the severity of symptoms[4]. The quadruple-Bifidobacterium formula in PGut VitaBac Immune Pro helps strengthen the body defenses, including Bifidobacterium bifidum, which can increase the number of interleukins[5], regulating and enhancing immune system. Bifidobacterium longum also helps regulate the resting neural activity and improve mental fatigue[6].
Most modern citizens susceptible to respiratory tract discomfort are not only caused by the increase of external allergenic substances, but also the intestinal microecology imbalance, which leads to problems in immune regulation. For example, hyperactive Th2 cells can easily lead to allergic diseases such as sneezing, while the trachea will be more susceptible to allergens. PGut VitaBac Immune Pro contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG to help reduce upper respiratory allergic reactions and morbidity[7]. The product also contains Lactobacillus paracasei, which can modulate immune response, reduce the occurrence of hyperactive immune cells[8] and the onset time of upper respiratory tract sensitivity[9].
Bad breath usually comes from the production of volatile sulfide during the breakdown of proteins in food debris by oral bacteria. On the other hand, drinking and smoking habits, mouth cavity and gastrointestinal diseases, drug therapy, etc. may also lead to bad breath. Researches have pointed out that Lactobacillus reuteri helps reduce the amount of inflammatory cytokine inside gingival crevicular fluid of patients with gingivitis and tooth decay, thus can improve bad breath caused by inflammation[10]. Bacteriocin produced by Lactobacillus reuteri and Lactobacillus paracasei can suppress the reproduction of oral harmful bacteria, which can help improve tooth decay and periodontal disease[11].
Essence extracted from heat-killed Lactobacillus plantarum is stable postbiotics. Studies show that postbiotic Lactobacillus plantarum can improve immunity, inhibit hyperactive immune cells and allergic antibodies. It can also regulate gut microbiota and promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, hence restore the balance of intestinal microecology.
