Polyflora AB was formulated by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo to support healthy levels of blood type friendly bacteria (probiotics) and provide an optimal growth media (prebiotics) specific for type AB.
Maintaining a balance of healthy intestinal flora is essential to optimize normal digestion and elimination. In today's world, with all of its modern pressures, the ability to maintain an optimal intestinal microbial balance is almost always taxed. It has also been estimated that we consume 1 million times fewer healthy bacteria in our diet today than our ancient ancestors consumed. Recent studies document a clear role for our ABO blood type and secretor status in determining the makeup of the 'microbiome': the total population of bacteria that live within our digestive tract. The revolutionary design of Polyflora AB not only incorporates this new knowledge about which specific strains to include in the formula; it is also designed to include as 'prebiotics' (the nutrients that help support the growth of healthy flora) foods which are rated as 'beneficial' for the type AB diet.
No other probiotic formula achieves such a degree of personalization and specificity.
