These strains contain unique* probiotic Multiflora Cholesterol from the innovative* line of special-purpose probiotics Multiflora from Evalar. The expert first presented it to the audience.

The new products are manufactured from high quality raw materials supplied by AB-BIOTICS, a leading Spanish manufacturer of patented probiotic strains with proven effectiveness. In Russia, these strains are available only in probiotics of Multiflora line, since AB-BIOTICS supplies them exclusively for Evalar.

Multiflora Cholesterol contributes to maintaining normal levels of total cholesterol and of low density lipoprotein (“bad”) cholesterol. If a patient takes synthetic drugs for this purpose, then the new product will enhance their effect, which may make it possible to reduce the dose.1

  • condition of teeth and gums - Multiflora Denta;2

  • health of allergic skin - Multiflora Derma;3

  • balance of microflora in women, to protect against infection caused by candida fungi - Multiflora Femi.4

Evalar’s Multiflora line probiotics attracted a lot of attention from participants in the congress. The interest in the emergence of alternative ways to maintaining good health is currently on the rise among medical practitioners, since these methods significantly expand the possibilities of preventive care and individual approach to patients.
