BENEFICIAL BACTERIA IN THE DIGESTIVE TRACT
Why Do We Need Probiotics?
According to the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization, probiotics are “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” The most common probiotics are lactic acid bacteria and Bifidobacteria, but strains of Bacillus bacteria and certain yeasts commonly found in yogurt are also useful.
Since the human gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) is home to over 400 different kinds of microbes, it’s only logical that such a diverse environment would benefit from multiple probiotic strains, rather than supplementation with only one type. Different strains populate diverse areas of the GI tract, and studies are finding that different probiotic strains are linked to specific health benefits. That’s why BioPRO has five different strains of highly effective probiotics in every capsule.
What’s In BioPRO?
BioPRO provides one billion colony-forming units (CFU) per capsule – that’s ten billion CFU per gram! In addition, BioPRO provides fructooligosaccharides to nourish the probiotic bacteria, helping them thrive and grow for maximum effect.
Probiotic strains used in BioPRO include Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bacillus coagulans, and Lactobacillus acidophilus. L. acidophilus in particular is especially useful, as it uses prebiotics for improved colonization and boasts superior survival rates in the GI tract, making it both hardy and effective.
Probiotics and Your Gut
Probiotics are incredibly useful in helping you maintain optimal health for your GI tract. As you know, an unhappy stomach can ruin your entire day and have a considerable influence on your overall well-being. However, probiotics can help improve and maintain gastrointestinal health in a variety of ways. A quality probiotic supplement can help...
- Promote a healthy inflammatory response in the GI tract, calming and soothing GI tissues
- Promote a balanced and optimal bacterial and yeast flora, supporting immune health
- Enhance overall digestive function and nutrient assimilation, even in sensitive individuals
In addition, the particular probiotic strain of B. infantis, found in BioPRO, can significantly improve digestive comfort, occasional bloating, distension, and bowel movement difficulty
Probiotics and Your Immune System
Probiotics greatly benefit your immune system in a number of ways. First of all, a probiotic supplement can protect against imbalanced GI flora by competing with them in the body for the resources they need to thrive. With probiotics keeping those unhealthy and undesirable organisms from growing in your body, you’ll find you have an enhanced immune system.
Probiotics can also increase levels of T lymphocytes (T-cells) and natural killer (NK) cells, both of which help promote optimal immune defenses, maintaining your body’s health. To maintain balance, probiotics also help modulate immune system activity by helping your immune system react at the right time, with the right level of force.
What Else Can Probiotics Do?
That’s right—the diverse health benefits of probiotics don’t stop at your GI tract or your immune system. Amazingly, there are yet more advantages to making sure your body has a healthy supply of effective probiotics. A probiotic supplement may also help...
