Mutaflor® has helped many people maintain natural intestinal health over the past nearly 100 years. Since Ardeypharm acquired Mutaflor® in 1971, we have established the most advanced production techniques, intensive research and new studies till date. The results repeatedly confirm the effectiveness and tolerability of Mutaflor® for many intestinal diseases.
Today, Mutaflor® is one of the best-studied and best-proven probiotic drugs. Its natural active ingredient is probably the best-researched therapeutic intestinal bacterium.
The Mutaflor® active ingredient: the medical intestinal germ Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917
Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917 is a natural intestinal germ and originates from the group of Escherichia coli bacteria, in short also E. coli bacteria. E. coli bacteria are among the first bacteria to colonize our intestines after birth. Unlike various other E. coli strains, E. coli strain Nissle 1917 is not pathogenic hence, scientists call this property apathogenic. Its positive properties and its influence on the intestinal barrier are particularly diverse.
