Re-Establish Healthy Microflora

Probiotic.jpg

Normal bowel microflora, such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria species, support healthy gastrointestinal function through numerous mechanisms.† These probiotic bacteria contribute to a healthy intestinal environment by helping maintain an optimal pH and producing important nutrients and enzymes.† Bacteria that dwell in the large intestine help digest dietary fiber to produce short-chain fatty acids, the fuel for enterocytes that make up the intestinal lining.† Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria also help to support healthy digestion, support immune system homeostasis, promote healthy bacterial and yeast balance, support skin health, promote normal intestinal permeability, and support a healthy balance of inflammatory mediators.


Everyday factors such as poor diet, stress, and travel can disrupt healthy intestinal microflora, contributing to occasional digestive upset and irregularity. Research indicates that supplementation with probiotic bacteria and microflora growth-promoters, or pre-biotics such as fructooligosaccharides (FOS), can help to re-establish the natural balance of healthy bowel flora and support gastrointestinal function and comfort.
