Hylak Plus Acidophilus

The sterilized concentrate of the metabolic products of lactic acid –producing organisms, with metabolic products of Gram-positive and Gram-negative small and large intestine symbionts, biosynthetic lactic acid, lactate buffer salts, amino acids, short-chain, volatile fatty acids.

PH: 3.0-3.4.

Properties and Effectivity

The healthy gut, and in particular, certain parts of the bowel (ileum, colon and rectum) are colonized by various natural bacteria, E.G. Lactobacillus (lactic acid producers) Bioacidophillus and Helveticus.

The biosynthetic lactic acid and lactate buffer in HYLAK PLUS drops contribute to this adjustment of the acid values. This has a favourable effect on the processes of digestion (eg.in the absence of hydrochloric acid in the gastric juices and disturbances of digestion as a result of fermentation and septic processes) and deprives pathogens of the conditions they need for growth.

The metabolic products of natural gut flora in HYLAK PLUS drops (lactic acid producers and Gram-positive and Gram-negative symbiants in the small and large intestines) can maintain the normal function of the intestinal mucosa and thus, promote the recolonisation with natural gut bacteria.


  • General digestive disturbances, such as flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation
  • During and after antibiotic, sulphonamide or radiation therapy

  • Disturbances of the gastrointestinal tract resulting from a change of climate (e.g. travelling to tropical countries)
  • Symptoms such as nausea, circulatory disturbances, ready fatigability, brought about by chronic contamination of the bowels
  • Chronic allergy skin (e.g. inflamed rashes (eczema) nettle rash (urticaria)
  • On medical prescription for bowel inflammation of suckling infants as a result of salmonella infection
