What does BariMelts® Probiotic do for the body?
Our bodies naturally have a healthy balance of bacteria on and in them. When the balance is disrupted (as is the case after bariatric surgery and antibiotics), it can lead to “bad” bacteria taking over and making someone feel sick. Probiotics consist of healthy “good” bacteria, which can restore the natural balance and may help to prevent diarrhea and upset stomach. Probiotics can also help to increase the levels of vitamin B12 which is often deficient after bariatric surgery. Probiotics may help reduce the risk of developing pouchitis, an intestinal inflammation common after some bariatric surgeries. Probiotics may redure the incidence of diarrhea, a very common side effect of antibiotics taken after surgery.
Why is BariMelts® Probiotic better than other brands?
Many other probiotics contain Lactobacillus species. Some studies suggest that B. coagulans strains are more stable in harsh enviroments such as the extremely acidic gastric fluid found in our stomachs. This might suggest that BariMelts® Probiotic is better able to survive and therefore more beneficial when ingested orally as compared to other oral probiotic supplements. The BariMelts® delivery system is great for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery as it dissolves in the mouth and makes the nutrients available for absorption before they reach the stomach. Since the tablet dissolves in the mouth, the tablet does not take up space in the stomach and allows you to eat a true meal. Some patients post-surgery may have difficulty swallowing and therefore this dosage form would help with that as well.
