About Probiotics

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are live "friendly" bacteria. There are billions of bacteria in and on our bodies - some of them are good, some of them are not so good. Probiotics are the very best of those bacterial strains. They work to keep a healthy intestinal balance by replenishing and maintaining only the beneficial bacterial strains. Maintaining this balance is critical for overall good health.

Why supplement with probiotics?

Maintaining bacterial balance in the intestine promotes healthy gastrointestinal function.*
Beneficial bacteria may be reduced due to a variety of factors:

  • Age
  • Antibiotic or other medication use
  • Lifestyle

Who should take probiotics?

Daily probiotic supplementation is considered a necessary component of any healthy diet. It supports health in:*

• Pre- and post-pregnancy
• Infants (1 year+), children and adolescents
• Adults
• Seniors

While probiotics may be added in foods such as yogurt and smoothies, direct probiotic supplementation provides the highest amount of beneficial live and active cultures. Probiotics should be a routine part of a daily lifestyle to help maintain optimal health conditions.*
