The formulation found in Vivomixx® is called the De Simone Formulation. They all work in synergy to help restore and maintain the balance of your intestinal flora.
Vivomixx® was invented by a medical doctor and professor of infectious disease and immunology – Claudio De Simone, MD, PhD. These strains were chosen for their specific individual characteristics and their ability to work closely as a team to perform what single strains or other combinations of strains cannot do.
