LACTO-5® locally derived probiotics, better suited to our local diets.

How LACTO-5® protects our intestines even better in 5 ways

Local strains probiotics

The bacteria found in LACTO-5® is uniquely derived from Malaysian sources in collaboration with Melaka Biotechnology Corporation.

The world experts say locally derived probiotics work best in our intestines. The local strains adapt better to our diets to provide optimum protection to our intestines.

Locked-in spores

Spore-forming friendly bacteria grows a protective layer to keep themselves dormant until they reach your intestines. This means the friendly bacteria will survive 100% in our harsh stomach acids until they reach the intestines where they come "alive" to provide optimum protection!

Logical formula

A synergistic combination of 5 local strains for total intestine health. Each LACTO-5® capsule contains 5 live bacteria strains:

Lactobacillus acidophilus
Bacillus subtillis
Lactobacillus rhamnosus
Bifidobacterium longum
Streptococcus thermophilus

Live friendly bacteria of up to 10 billion

To provide optimum protection everyday!


Allows friendly bacteria to survive without refrigeration.

5 health benefits of probiotics

Improves digestion

Helps reduce indigestion and prevent bloating after meals.

Eases diarrhea & constipation symptoms

Clinically proven to shorten the duration and frequency of diarrhoea. It also helps to kill bad bacteria that cause constipation.

Strengthens the immune system

The digestive system is the body largest organ where 70-80% of our immune cells reside. Recent studies show that the regular intake of probiotics can reduce the occurrence of common colds.

Reduces lactose intolerance

The enzyme lactase converts lactose (in dairy products) to glucose that is absorbed by our body. Lactose intolerant sufferers have insufficient levels of enzyme lactase. This could lead to diarrhea, bloating and abdominal pains. Probiotics can help to improve the low enzyme levels, thus reducing the symptoms.

Enhances mineral absorption

Probiotics help improve the absorption of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in our body.

Why spore-forming Bacteria?

Spore-forming bacteria grows a protective layer to keep themselves dormant-but-alive until they reach your intestines. Upon contact with water and nutrients, the spore-forming bacteria open up, where it can grow and flourish to maintain a well-balanced intestinal microflora.

The intestinal flora builds a natural defense barrier to prevent intruders such as bacteria, toxins, antigens and pollutants from penetrating into our body. The 100% survival rate of these spore-forming bacteria are unparalleled. This means the friendly bacteria will survive the harsh stomach acids, bringing all the benefits to our intestines.

Friendly bacteria live in our intestines on the food we take and do many good things for us. Our bacteria are unique to us. They have adapted to our diets, water and weather. All these are unique. Our diet is high in chilly and spice. Our water contains both chlorine and fluorine.

Locally-derived probiotics have better adaptation to our gastro-intestinal tract, local diet and water.
