“Entralive Maximal®” and “Entralive Maximal®PLUS”

Super-Synbiotic Powders that are “Better by Billions”

  • Better Research
  • Better Probiotic Strains
  • Better Viable Cell Counts
  • Better Survival Through the Stomach Acid
  • Better Prebiotics to Boost Viable Cell Counts (Equivalent to More than a Trillion per Serving)
  • Better Value

The Research

The special probiotic strains and the world-leading super-synbiotic concept were developed in conjunction with the government-funded Cooperative Research Centre for Food Industry Innovation which included researchers from The University of NSW, CSIRO and industry. The superiority of the cultures was also confirmed by research carried out by the NSW Department of Primary Industry.

Effect of probiotics chart

This chart demonstrates the effect of a range of so-called “probiotic” cultures on the growth of a bad E. coli.  The cultures are ordered from best to worst.  The best strains, which we use in Entralive, are among the very best at suppressing the growth rate of the E. coli.  However, about a third of the cultures tested stimulated the bad bacterium!  One cannot tell by looking at the genus and species name whether it is a good strain or not, since there are several Lactobacillus acidophilus strains in the test and all behaved differently.  We use only the best strains in Entralive Maximal.

The Cell Count

The total viable cell count for the Entralive Maximal® is 30 billion per 5g serving, consisting of 15 billion Lactobacillus helveticus LAFTI® strain L10 (originally named L. acidophilus LAFTI® strain L10) and 15 billion Bifidobacterium lactis LAFTI® strain B94 (or strain BLC1).

The total viable cell count for the Entralive Maximal® PLUS is 50 billion per 5g serving, consisting of the above plus 15 billion Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain R0011 and 5 billion Saccharomyces boulardii.

Improved Survivability

Capsule products dissolve in stomach acid and the freeze-dried culture cells have to suck in this concentrated hydrochloric acid in order to rehydrate and come back to life.  With a powder, the cells rehydrate and come back to life in water and do not need to suck in damaging acid.  This results in a much higher survival rate through to the intestines.

A Combination of Prebiotic, Fibre Boosters

Inulin rapidly boosts the Bifidobacteria, particularly in the ascending colon.  These already increased cell numbers are then further boosted by the arabinogalactan (FiberAid®) as they travel through the remainder of the colon. In a pig experiment carried out by CSIRO scientists using similar combinations the boost effect was close to 50-fold.  The lactobacilli are cross fed by the Bifidobacteria as well as being boosted by the trehalose. There is not enough room in a capsule to fit effective amounts of prebiotics.

Better Value

Although the boost effect will vary from person to person, it is estimated that a 5g serving of Entralive Maximal® is probably equivalent to taking many dozens of capsules of the best alternative product at once.
