– This product is a high-CFU probiotic supplement providing a combination of 12 different strains of beneficial bacteria important to intestinal health and well-being. Probiotic supplements contain live, “friendly” bacteria that support a healthy balance of microorganisms in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Probiotics also promote digestion, support immune system function, facilitate nutrient and mineral absorption, and aid in the production of vitamins. Normally, the human gastrointestinal tract is populated by hundreds of different strains of microorganisms important for healthy gastrointestinal and immune function. However, the delicate balance of beneficial microorganisms in the gut can be altered medications, stress, and other factors, which may affect digestive and immune function. Daily supplementation with this product can support against possible reductions of beneficial microorganisms and maintain a healthy, balanced gastrointestinal microbiota.
Facts and Functions
A synergistic blend of 12 probiotic species: The twelve safe, well-studied probiotic lactic acid bacteria in this product provide a broad-spectrum of benefits that help restore intestinal microbalance more effectively compared to single strain formulas. Six colonizing Lactobacillus species important for the small intestine, four colonizing Bifidobacterium species important for the colon, and two beneficial transient bacteria used as starter cultures in yogurt, provide benefit throughout the GI tract.
To be effective, the living organisms in probiotic supplements must survive exposure to stomach acids as they travel to the small intestine and colon. This product utilizes a proprietary technology that protect probiotics against destruction by harsh gastric conditions, resulting in significantly more live microorganisms delivered to the small intestine than unprotected probiotic formulations.
