Upwards of 60% of the immune system is associated with the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, so good digestive health is essential for whole body wellness. We live in synergy with the bacterial colonies in our intestines, and imbalances in this gut flora—either an absence of beneficial bacteria or an overgrowth of unhealthy organisms—can bring about a wide variety of health complications. Some of these—like bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea—are digestive in nature, but microbial imbalances can influence our health in many other ways.
Traditionally people would consume fermented foods like kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi to help ensure healthy GI flora. Since these foods are rarely consumed in sufficient quantities today, it is important that most people supplement their diets with probiotics.
Probiotic SynergyTM Probiospheres provide a comprehensive array of beneficial bacteria to support a healthy gastrointestinal system. They contain 5 billion colony forming units (CFUs) made up of eight different bacterial strains designed to mimic the diversity of microorganisms found in a variety of cultured foods. The types of lactobacilli, bifidobacteria, and streptococcus in our product are the most well-researched, most effective, and are scientifically proven to be beneficial.
With probiotic supplements, it’s all about the survival of three major barriers: during the manufacturing process, on the shelf and through stomach acid. Probiotic SynergyTM is formulated to survive these barriers with unique technology that uses a patented delivery and shelf stability technology available to ensure maximum potency and viability. It is this Probiospheres tableting technology and shape that protects fragile probiotic organisms from harsh stomach acid and delivers the highest number of live organisms to the lower intestinal tract, where they are most effective.
