Special probiotics. Proven support.

Did you know not all yoghurt contains probiotics – and not all probiotics are the same?

Studies show that probiotic effects are strain-specific.1

Here at Vaalia, we select our probiotics specifically for their scientifically proven benefits. Each serve of Vaalia contains just the right amount of these live and active probiotic cultures to help boost your digestion and immunity.* And Vaalia also provides the goodness of dairy, rich in calcium and a source of protein. This makes deliciously creamy Vaalia a smart food choice for your gut health and overall wellbeing.*

Probiotic

Noun: Live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the host2

70-80%

of the body’s immune cells are located in your gut3

What’s different about Vaalia?

Vaalia contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus, LGG® or LGG® and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, BB-12® or BB-12®, two of the world’s best documented probiotic strains.

Clinical studies show that both LGG® and BB-12® survive through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to deliver immune and digestive health benefits.

How LGG® boosts immunity for Adults and Children4:

  1. Promotes good bacteria in the gut and reduces potential pathogens (bacterium, virus, or other microorganism that can cause disease) to improve natural balance
  2. Supports the immune system by inhibiting disease-causing pathogens with anti-microbial molecules
  3. Protects the gut barrier function to reduce the passage of disease-causing pathogens
  4. Stimulates immune cells to produce compounds that fight infection

How BB-12® boosts digestion for Adults5:

  1. Improves bowel function through improved digestion of food, water and nutrient absorption, and waste disposal
  2. Enables the movements of your digestive system to bring food down through each stage of digestion until it is eliminated
  3. Increases waste disposal rates for improved regularity

Since they’re short-term visitors to our gut, for these immunity and digestion benefits it’s best to consume a daily dose of LGG® and BB-12® in Vaalia yoghurt as part of a balanced diet.

LGG® and BB-12® probiotics are registered trademarks of Chr. Hansen, a global bioscience company that develops natural solutions for the food, nutritional, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries.

The study of probiotics is an emerging science with increasing health benefit discoveries. New studies have identified benefits in oral health, skin health, respiratory health and cholesterol levels.

How do probiotics work?

Probiotic strains interact with various components of the GI tract to influence host health. They adhere to the gut barrier function to enhance its integrity and inhibit disease-causing pathogens. Additionally they interact with immune cells and influence immune function. This may increase resistance to infections and increase tolerance, and potentially decrease allergic conditions.6

*As part of a varied and healthy diet, LGG® probiotic in Vaalia yoghurt at a daily intake of at least 1 billion colony forming units (cfu) each, can strengthen the immune system in the general population. BB-12® probiotic in Vaalia yoghurt of a daily intake of at least 1 billion cfu, can improve bowel function in the general adult population; also with dietary fibre for regularity.
