For Lactose Intolerance

6-Strain Probiotic + Lactase

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria essential for improving intestinal health.
is a probiotic supplement specifically formulated with 6 probiotic strains and lactase.

What does ProbiLIFT L do?

  • Breaks down lactose to reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance

  • Assists infants in digesting lactose, preventing flatulence, vomiting,
    diarrhoea, and long periods of restlessness and crying.

  • Fights the growth of harmful bacteria

  • Supports the immune system

  • Increases the levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut

ProbiLIFT L can replace the good bacteria lost through:

  • Antibiotic treatment3

  • Diarrhoea & Constipation7,8

  • GI infection10

  • Old age6

  • Malnutrition

ProbiLIFT L can assist in:

  • Reducing the side effects of antibiotic treatment3

  • Minimising GI discomfort and bloating associated with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) & colitis (intestinal inflammation)4,5

  • Prevention and treatment of allergic skin reactions and eczema9

Why 6 strains?

The beneficial effects of probiotics are both strain-and dose-specific. A combination of various probiotic strains working together has been shown to be the most effective in the gut1. In addition, more significant results can be achieved with multiple strains in combination compared to single strain preparations2.

Detailed Information:

Scheduling status: S0. Proprietary name (and dosage form): PROBILIFT L (capsules). Pharmacological classification: D.34.9 Probiotic. Complementary Medicine. Health Supplement. Pharmacological action: Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, essential for improving intestinal health. PROBILIFT L is a probiotic supplement specially formulated with 6 probiotic strains and lactase. Probiotics can increase the levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut, creating an environment that is unfavourable to the growth of harmful bacteria. By introducing live probiotic cultures, like what is contained in PROBILIFT L to the intestinal tract, the beneficial gut flora populations are increased and transitory flora, including pathogenic or bad bacteria, are not able to colonise the intestine. PROBILIFT L contains the enzyme lactase, a naturally occurring enzyme that helps the body to break down the complex sugar lactose, found in milk, breastmilk, some infant formulas and dairy products. Infants may have difficulty digesting lactose, resulting in trapped wind and flatulence, vomiting, diarrhoea, and long periods of restlessness and crying. PROBILIFT L helps the body to digest lactose and manage symptoms of lactose intolerance. PROBILIFT L has been specially formulated to assist with the symptoms of lactose intolerance. Probiotics should normalise the microbial balance in the human intestines when ingested on a regular basis thereby supporting the functioning of the digestive tract. Identification: PROBILIFT L contains a cream coloured liquid with white suspended particles. Presentation PROBILIFT L is packed in a 30 ml amber glass bottle containing 30 ml of liquid, with a black plastic tamper evident cap and a graduated glass pipette. Each carton contains 1 blister strip. Agera Health. 30 ml.
