Table of contents
The Respi Biotics 25B CFU - Respiratory Health from HSNessentials is a capsuled product made from a mix of bacteria ferments of the Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus and Streptococcus genus, and combined with Orafti®HSI inulin and fructooligosaccharides (FOS).
The combination of ferments and prebiotics is called symbiotic, and they are compounds that are currently being investigated for their multiple health benefits. The different combinations of bacterial strains determines the use profile of the product.
Respi Biotics 25B UFC is our daily use “Biotics” support version, made with ferments intended for the maintenance of respiratory health.

The product contains no ingredient of animal origin in its composition, and its capsules are vegetable.
The product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Because respiratory disorders are up to 3 times more frequent in high-frequency athletes who do physical exercise outdoors, such as runners or cyclists, which negatively affects performance and sometimes requires attention and rest (Spence et al., 2007).
Respi Biotics has been formulated with the strains of bacteria that have shown the most direct effect on the management of infections and other respiratory tract disorders, so that you can prevent the appearance of such conditions and continue to perform at 100%.
The ferments used in Respi Biotic are bacteria defined by the World Health Organisation as living microorganisms which when administered in sufficient quantities can confer health benefits on the host.
That's to say, that each Respi Biotics capsule contains billions of living bacteria with the ability to colonise our bodies, implant themselves and produce beneficial effects.
Ferments in general have been shown to be effective in:
- Decreasing the occurrence of upper respiratory tract infections.
- Decreasing the duration of the infection.
- Decreasing the magnitude of the symptoms.
(Hao et al., 2015)
Each bacterial strain has particular mechanisms of action, and although strains of the same genus (e.g. Lactobacillus) have certain similar trends, each species is unique.
It is also important to take into account the concentrations of the ferments, as those below the minimum threshold are not considered functional because they do not present positive effects homogeneously.
Respi Biotics has been formulated with a careful selection of bacteria strains intended for maintenance of respiratory function as shown in the tests:
- L. casei: Associated with reduced risk of upper respiratory tract infection in athletes during winter.
- L. fermentum: Associated with a decrease in the duration and severity of respiratory infections in male cyclists.
- L. acidophilus: Which can help reduce the risk of developing respiratory disorders in physically active adults.
- L. plantarum y L. paracasei: A species combination that has been shown to reduce the prevalence of colds by 12%.
- B. bifidum, B. longum, B. lactis: Each species included in the genus Bifidobacterium has had a positive impact on factors such as intensity, frequency and duration of respiratory disorders in athletes or in people exposed to factors that exacerbate these conditions.
(Hao et al., 2015; Jäger et al., 2019)
And many more species-specific effects!
Inulin and FOS are a combination of higher and lower complexity fructans that exert their effects when they reach the intestinal tract, and whose combination with the ferments is called symbiotic, as the combination acts in synergy.
The addition of prebiotic compounds favours the microorganisms and the main objective of this type of combination is to improve the survival of the ferments in the organism. (Markowiak y Slizewska, 2017).
At HSN, we have specialists in research, development and innovation in the field of food supplements.
Our experts have carried out an exhaustive bibliographic review of the scientific literature to precisely select the quantities and types of bacteria strains used and the polysaccharides with prebiotic action best suited to amplify the effects of the living microorganisms.
The combination of FOS and Inulin enhances the bioactivity of the ferments contained in the product.
One of the great monographs on ferments, published by Jäger et al. (2017), states that:
“Products that contain probiotics must include [...] the total estimated quantity of each probiotic strain at the end of the product’s shelf life, as measured by colony forming units (CFU) or live cells'.
As living microorganisms, bacteria die over time and lose their activity.
That's why companies that market probiotics without declaring their CFU content don't give you information on the biological activity of the bacteria, they could all be dead.
Respi Biotics ensures a 25B CFU content in combined action throughout the life of the product, an effective concentration from start to finish.
The species of bacteria that we have included in the product have been obtained from living microorganisms present in the human body, which is one of the ideal properties of a probiotic (Govender et al., 2014).
The bacteria cultures have been carried out in controlled environments posing a challenge to the survival of the organism, turning them into bacteria:
- More resistant to pH.
- That withstand temperature and humidity better.
- With increased colonisation capacity.
And therefore greater net activity than other equivalent strains developed under other conditions.
Take one capsule, once a date, preferably before a meal to ensure high survival of the bacteria until they reach the intestine.
Bacteria survive best in a reduced and controlled temperature environment, so it's preferable to keep the product in the refrigerator or in a dry, cool place away from light to avoid early degradation.
It goes well with:
- Psyllium Husk.
- L-Glutamine powder.
- Bovine Colostrum (>30% Active IgG).
- Turmeric extract (50:1) and Bromelain Plus.
- Inulin powder.
