MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - April 03, 2013) -
Miami-based nutritional supplement maker Scimera BioScience® announced promising news for the 40 million Americans who suffer from the gastrointestinal side effects of antibiotics, also known as antibiotic-associated diarrhea or AAD. Scimera's probiotic formulation, Asprega ProPac, was created to address these side effects and comes in a novel 10-day package+. As a result, consumers can purchase a smaller, less expensive course of probiotics to last the typical duration of their antibiotic prescription.
ProPac, which uses the same complex blend of 11 probiotic strains and saccharomyces boulardii yeast found in Scimera's Asprega product, seeks to replace "good bacteria" that can be disturbed during antibiotic therapy. It is thought that this disturbance of gastrointestinal flora causes clinical symptoms of AAD.*
"We have seen significant evidence over the past half-dozen years that probiotics may reduce antibiotic-associated diarrhea for about 50 to 60% of patients who suffer from symptoms*," said South Florida physician Frederick Chaleff, M.D., founder and CEO of Scimera BioScience and one of the key players in formulating Asprega. "ProPac offers patients an opportunity to address the side effects caused by their antibiotics*+ -- and at a lower cost. ProPac costs less than half of full-size packages of competing probiotics."
At 20 billion CFUs (colony forming units), Asprega ProPac has more than double the potency of most probiotics. In addition, its delayed-release capsule delivers maximum effectivenesss in the digestive tract.
