With upwards of 60% of the immune system associated with the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, good digestive health is essential for overall well-being. We live in harmony with the bacterial colonies in our intestines, and imbalances in gut flora – either due to a lack of beneficial bacteria or an overgrowth of harmful organisms – can lead to various health complications. Some of these, such as bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea, are related to digestion, but microbial imbalances can affect our health in countless other ways.
Traditionally, people consumed fermented foods like kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi to ensure healthy GI flora. However, since these foods are rarely consumed in adequate amounts today, it’s essential that most people supplement their diets with probiotics.
With probiotics, it’s all about survival. Probiotic organisms must survive three critical barriers to be of benefit to the consumer – the manufacturing process, time on the shelf, and most importantly, survive transit through the acidic environment of the stomach. The new Probiotic Synergy is formulated to handle all of the above, presented in moisture-resistant BIO-tract Probiospheres that enhance stability and the ultimate delivery of probiotic organisms to the intestinal tract.
Designs for Health’s Probiotic Synergy uses the most advanced patented delivery and shelf stability technology available to ensure maximum potency and viability. This is achieved using the latest techniques designed to protect fragile probiotic organisms from harsh stomach acid and deliver the highest number of live organisms to the intestinal tract.
Regular consumption of probiotics may improve immune response and mucin production, as well as alleviate symptoms associated with diarrhea, constipation, dysbiosis, bacterial infections, and yeast overgrowth. Probiotics should also be considered during or after use of antibiotics.
This translates to better results – through increased levels of protected bacteria optimally released throughout the entire digestive tract.
