ENTEROVITAL is made from the association of three strains taxonomically identified of lactic acid bacteria belonging to bacterial species usually present in the intestinal flora. These species have been freeze-dried to maintain their vitality, with inulin (indigestible vegetable fibers) and lactoferrin, a milk protein which is part of the family of transferrin, which are responsible for iron uptake and transport.

Inulin is a fiber made up of non-digestible carbohydrates from enzymes produced by the human body, present in various foods of plant origin. Arriving in the intestine without being digested, inulin is used by the bacteria of the intestinal flora that ferment it to obtain nutrients. Through this mechanism, insulin promotes the balance of intestinal bacterial flora, acting as a prebiotic.
Lactoferrin is a substance found in the milk of all mammals and in mucous secretions. It is a siderophylline (a particular type of glycoprotein): it represents the main reserve of iron in milk. It is able to bind iron and prevents pathogenic bacterial species present in our intestines from metabolizing it. This helps to reduce the multiplication of bacteria and their ability to adhere to the intestinal mucosa
Probiotics (lactobacilli – bifidobacteria), in the human intestine, live more than 500 bacterial species, which make up the intestinal flora. Probiotics (lactic ferments) contain microorganisms naturally present within the intestinal flora and are administered for the purpose of re-colonizing the intestine. In the presence of gastrointestinal disorders, probiotics are used to rebalance the intestinal bacterial flora. Probiotics, for the most part, are represented by lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, which regulate intestinal motility and the integrity of the tissues of the gastrointestinal tract.
