Cranberries in nature

Cranberry is a plant native in North-America. It has dark red berries in winter time. Its pink or purple flowers bloom from late spring to the end of summer and produce bright red fruit in fall. It belongs to the same plant family as red cranberry and blueberry.

Cranberry was consumed for its distinctive scent and refreshing taste rather than for its beneficial effect. In 1621 the Pilgrims consumed it for Thanksgiving. Cranberry sauce became a national tradition just after the Civil War. General Ulysses S. Grant thought cranberry sauce was an important part of Thanksgiving. In 1864, during the Battle of Petersburg, he ordered cranberries for the Union troops. The soldiers liked the previously unknown fruit and its consumption became a habit for them. The settlers didn't know about the high C-vitamin content in cranberries. It became popular among British sailors because those who consumed it did not develop scurvy. From the beginning of the 21st century, the use of cranberries is increasingly common and has become very popular in recent years. Cranberries are consumed raw, dried, as jams, flour or sauce.

Black currant leaf in nature

In Hungary, black currant is a sporadically occuring, protected plant, which is grown mainly for its fruit. It belongs to the family of Grossulariaceae. Its clusters are smaller and much looser than the red currant. Its leaves contain flavonoids.

Inulin and microflora

Microflora is formed by beneficial, living microorganisms, which survive the acidic environment in the gastrointestinal tract and help maintain the balance of healthy intestinal mircroflora. Our products contain high numbers of bacterial florea and inulin which helps their reproduction.

Probioticts also known as microflora is of Greek origin meaning life. R. B. Parker was the first who used the term probotic in 1974 for organisms and substances responsible for the balance of intestinal tract. The characteristiscs of probiotics are: human origin, non-pathogenic, resistant to the digestive effects of gastric acid, bile, saliva, pancreatic and intestinal fluids. They retain their resilience in food shelf life and technological processes. In addition, probiotics are capable of adhering to mucosal cells, have antimicrobial activity against potential pathogens, and reduce the adherence of pathogenic microbes to the mucosal surface. Probiotics are mostly lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria. Most of the best-known probiotic lactic acid bacteria strains are Lactobacillus, smaller portion is Streptococcus genus.

Prebiotics are natural nutrients, that are the sole nutrients of probiotics therefore promote their reproduction and prevalance. In the oral cavity and the gastrointestinal tract, the digestive enzymes do not break down the prebiotics and thus can reach the large intestine undigested. Prebiotics are dietary fibers, but water-soluble, therefore one of the best dietary fibers. In addition to their function of dietary fiber, their real utility lies in the fact that they are the exclusive nutrients of probiotics. Because of the lack of digestible nutrition in the large intestine where there is little food, the consumed prebiotics offer the possibility of the reproduction of human-friendly intestinal bacteria.

Many foods contain prebiotics, for example: Jerusalem artichoke, chicory, onions, garlic, leeks, artichokes, whole grains, wheat, banana, flax, spinach, cabbage, chard, mustard, berries, legumes, milk and most mature cheese.

Inulins are a type of prebiotics and actually dietary fibers that reach the large intestine undigested, enhance the reproduction and prevalance of probiotics.

Their role: digestion, balance of the intestinal flora
Our bodies are connected with the outside world through our intestinal system that is about 7 – 9 meters in length (the largest area in our body). Therefore it is vulnerable by the potential attack of pathogens and toxic substances. Normally there are about 200 to 400 different types of bacterial strains in our bowels. In fetal life beneficial bacteria dominates in 95-98%. Healthy intestinal flora provides protection against a variety of pathogens, ensures the integrity of intestinal mucosa and helps the absorption of the needed nutrients. They produce many essential vitamins for our body. If the gastrointestinal tract's defense mechanisms weaken, it can cause intereference in the absorption processes.

In order for probiotics to be effective in their environment, a large number is required which is at least 108 c.f.u./gram in the body.

What does the c.f.u. expression mean?

c.f.u.: colony-forming units per milliliter, the number of viable microorganisms. The amount of bacteria is usually measured this way in products. However, inulin is given in milligram. As appropriate doses of at least 109 c.f.u. is accepted.

 

What kind of probiotic products are effective?

-

It contains of an appropriate volume of germs, the minimum quantity proposed by specialist is 108 or 109 c.f.u.

-

Prebiotics help the reproduction of probiotics, therefore products should contain inulin or fructo- oligosaccharides.

-

They resist the effects of stomach acid, bile and digestive enzymes, so the live beneficial bacteria can reach the large intestine, where they are able to adhere and reproduce. One essential condition is that the bacteria keep their viability during their passage through the gastrointestinal tract.

-

A good probiotic product should contain at least 5-6 strains, as we intend to make up the intestinal flora's multi-culture.

-

During the warranty period and during technological processes they keep power of resistance.

One Year Products contain 6 types of bacterial strains in elevated quantity as well as Inulin for increasing efficiency.
