Pharmacological Classification:

A 32.2 Other Pro-Biotics/Digestives
DRcapsTM capsules: made from a novel hypromellose formulation, are uniquely resistant to a low pH environment such as that found in the stomach. The unique characteristics of DRcaps™ capsules are employed by Progast FLORACARE Forte to provide efficient, targeted delivery. 
Sensitive ingredients (e.g. probiotics, enzymes) can be protected through to their delivery in the intestines.


Pharmacological Action:
Probiotics are live micro-organisms {bacteria and yeast) which when administered in adequate amounts result in a health benefit for the person taking them.
PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTION 
Probiotics are live micro-organisms {bacteria and yeast) which when administered in adequate amounts result in a health benefit for the person taking them.
1. Lactobacillus acidophilus 
Supports digestive and immune health, is acid and bile resistant and provides long lasting colonization* 
2. Bifidobacterium lactis 
Promotes a healthy inflammatory response including allergy response and supports the growth of other beneficial bacteria* 
3. Bifidobacterium longum 
Promotes a healthy stress response and may reduce gastrointestinal symptoms* 
4. Bilidobacterium bifidum
Supports healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range and may help alleviate gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea*


Echanism of Action: 
1) Probiotics: 
There are multiple theories regarding the mechanism of action of probiotics. 
The following three categories have been identified:
Helps to enhance and strengthen the reaction of the immune system in the gastro¬intestinal tract against harmful bacteria. 
b. Enhanced epithelial barrier function 
Helps to ensure a healthy bowel lining, preventing harmful bacteria from invading the epithelium. 
c. Anti-microbial effects 
Helps prevent bacterial adherence to and infiltration of the bowel lining.
2) Beta 1,3 Glucan: Beta Glucan modulates or activates but never stimulates the immune system. 
3) Zingiber officinale: 
A highly potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent that helps to relax the smooth muscles in the gut lining and helps with digestion promoting a healthy gut, relieving gastro-intestinal pain, nausea and facilitates the healing of ulcers. 
4) Perilla Leaf extract: Human in-vitro and ex-vivo studies showed: 
Helps improve Gastro-intestinal symptoms such as occasional bloating, gas, fullness and abdominal discomfort

  • Supports digestive health
  • Helps with transit of food through your gut
  • Helps support a normal inflammatory response in your gut
  • Helps improve daily regularity
The mode of action appears to interact with your neurological system and counteract the effects of stress and other psychosocial factors via your gut-brain axis!
) Folic acid: is a group of water-soluble B vitamins that helps to control gene expression and protect against rogue cells multiplying into cancer. Because the wall of your gut is perpetually renewed as new cells get pushed to the surface and old cells slough off into your digestive tract, you need nutrients to safeguard this replication process. Folate helps to control inflammation.
6) Vitamin D3: Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to a number of gut disorders, including: 
  • Diverticulitis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Vitamin D3 also acts as an anti-bacterial in the gut and wards off infection.
7) Zinc Gluconate: Zinc activates digestive enzymes, ensuring your meal is fully broken down and used. Zinc also strengthens the barrier of the gut wall, making it an indispensable trace mineral for those with leaky gut. 
8) Selenium AAC: Selenium is an antioxidant mineral. Selenium is found in antioxidant enzymes that minimize the damage of free radical stress and reduce inflammation. Selenium is also needed to make active thyroid hormone. 
9) Manganese AAC: Manganese "turns on" the enzymes that break down carbohydrates, amino acids and cholesterol.
