The Greek term "pro" (for) and bios (life) make up the term "probiotic," which translates to "for life." Probiotics are live bacteria that are beneficial for your health, especially your digestive and immune system. They can help maintain the intestinal lining, support digestive motility and assist in detoxification.See All Products
Below we've broken down the main functions of our Probiotic-GI and the benefits it can provide.
Recent research has shown an extensive bidirectional communication network between the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system suggesting that the gut microbiome and mood can be linked. Studies have shown that probiotic supplementation can help improve patient''s mood and perception of depressive symptoms. Probiotics have also shown to reduce the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines within the body.
Diet, antibiotics, and environment triggers can change human microbiome and create health problems. Consumption of probiotics can make up for these changes, reduce the instance of antibiotic related diarrhea and relieve occasional constipation.
Not all probiotic strains are created equally. Our BIFOLAC™ probiotics have specific strains clinically studied to improve intestinal wellbeing.
Probiotics may limit the growth of unhealthy gut bacteria to help digestion, support a healthy immune system and may even improve mood. They improve overall gut health, support food intolerances and assist the body in maintaining a healthy inflammatory response.
