What Are Probiotics
Probiotics are live bacteria that support intestinal and digestive health.
Your gut bacteria do more than just digest your dinner. They act as a protective barrier that keeps outsiders from entering your system and making you ill. When there's a bacterial imbalance, your intestinal flora can't protect you properly, leaving you vulnerable to harmful bacteria.
Probiotics are made up of "healthy bacteria" that help promote a balanced microflora. A clinically-supported probiotic supplement can help replenish this healthy bacteria to support the immune system, regulate gut bacteria balance, and lead to supported gut health.
With 70 to 80% of all immune cells located in your gut microbiome, the health and integrity of your digestive system is vital.
The beneficial bacteria that make up a healthy intestinal flora play three different roles:
1. They act as a barrier, preventing outsiders from penetrating your system;
2. They secrete beneficial vitamins and enzymes that help break down food making it easier to assimilate nutrients;
3. They help increase the beneficial bacteria population, maintain balance in your gut microbiome, and support overall immune function.
Taking a clinically supported probiotic product helps keep your gut flora healthy and balanced.
