There are hundreds and thousands of bacteria live in and are created in our large intestine, and they’re so important for our health that our gut is now being referred to as our “second brain”. The brain and digestive system operate a direct communication system that literally affects every other metabolic system in our body. Did you know that many neurotransmitters like serotonin, the ‘feel good’ transmitter, are manufactured by the bacteria found in your gut? When your gut is out of whack, so is your metabolism, mood, immune system, energy levels, and more.
Seasonal allergies, irritable bowel, sinus infections and constipation are just a few of the common symptoms you might experience if the balance of your good to bad gut bacteria is unhealthy.
There are many influences that disrupt our good gut flora, including environmental toxins, highly processed and high-sugar diets, inflammatory foods and many medications. As a result, probiotics are an absolute need for nearly everyone for general health and immune function.
Probiotic supplements are live microorganisms that can be taken orally, and in certain amounts can offer health benefits to the “host” (you). These little workers in your gut actually digest food, maintain your metabolism, offer protection from bad bacteria, and keep you regular are. Daily supplementation with a quality probiotic greatly boosts your gut function and overall health (particularly when you’re battling poor lifestyle habits or medication use) – and helps bolster your immune system! Taking a broad spectrum probiotic supplement is one of the best strategies to help promote a more optimal balance of “good” to “bad” bacteria in your colon.
Life Time MultiPro 30B is formulated to help you achieve a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the colon and improve your digestive health. Each shelf-stable capsule is packed with a minimum of 30 Billion colony-forming units of bacteria from six unique strains to help support digestive and immune health. The formula is dairy-free and may also benefit individuals with occasional digestive or bowel distress.
