With six major human studies, all demonstrating positive benefits in intestinal and immune heath, ProVen Probiotics and the Lab4 friendly bacteria they contain are one of the most studied groups of friendly bacteria in the world.
ProVen Probiotics have been developed by Dr Nigel Plummer - a world-renowned expert in the field of probiotics, Dr Plummer has worked with live bacteria for more than 30 years and produced his first human probiotic in 1994.
Around 15 years ago, Dr Plummer led a team of scientists in developing Lab4, a trademarked group of four human bacterial strains, which are used in the ProVen Probiotics products.
All ProVen Probiotics products are manufactured by Cultech Ltd, which is also owned by Dr Plummer and is approved to make probiotics as medicines.
This makes ProVen Probiotics unique in its continuous commitment to product development, often using proprietary strains of bacteria, and access to the latest technology, research and production processes.
As living organisms, probiotics are notoriously fragile. ProVen Probiotics are stomach acid and bile tolerant, meaning that when taken at the same time as food, they survive into the intestines where they can be used to support the microflora.
The production processes used for ProVen Probiotics, combined with optimised packaging and oversupply of the friendly bacteria in each serving mean that the products are guaranteed to be stable for 18 months at ambient temperatures. ProVen Probiotics guarantee that our products will always meet the label claim for the number of bacteria – the number on the label is the minimum count for each capsule, tablet or serving.
ProVen Probiotics have also developed a unique technique to combine the friendly bacteria with other nutrients at high levels without de-stabilising the probiotic, making them the only high quality probiotics combined with other multinutrients.
When you take ProVen Probiotics, the beneficial Lab4 bacteria start to repopulate the intestine, filling in the gaps where the good bacteria have been lost and crowding out the less desirable types. This process is particularly important following the use of antibiotics, which have the effect of depleting the numbers of good bacteria in the intestine.
Cultech Ltd (the company that manufactures the ProVen Probiotics products) is the only company in Europe licensed by the MHRA to produce probiotics for clinical studies. Approval to give probiotics to 500 healthy newborn babies for the Swansea Baby Study is testament to the quality and safety of our products.
