This high-potency probiotic supplement provides a combination of 12 different strains of beneficial bacteria important to intestinal health and well-being. Probiotic supplements contain live, "friendly" bacteria and/or yeast that promote proper digestion, support immune system function, aid in production of vitamins, and defend against harmful disease-causing bacteria.
Normally, the human gastrointestinal tract is populated by hundreds of different strains of bacterial microflora important for healthy gastrointestinal function. However, modern Western diets lack the beneficial bacteria that are as important to health as any required vitamin or nutrient. Stress, disease, aging, exposure to toxins, or use of antibiotics and certain medications can reduce the numbers of beneficial bacteria and set the stage for digestive disorders, impaired immune function, increased allergic sensitivity, infection, and inflammation.
The probiotic species in this product help replenish and maintain the essential gastrointestinal microflora missing from the diet or disrupted by antibiotic therapy or other medications.
