Probiotics are live beneficial bacteria that have health benefits. Adding more good bacteria to our GI tract by mouth is accomplished with “probiotics”. Health experts and physicians increasingly recommend probiotics. The Center for Nutrition is now recommending a high quality probiotic called Probiotic Ultra 40.
Our intestines contain over 100 trillion bacteria. Some of these are mandatory for good health and support a trim, fit, healthy body. Other bacteria can lead to an overweight, diseased body.
The healthy bacteria in our intestines are under attack by antibiotics and modern high calorie diets that are also deficient of fiber. Losing these good bacteria can lead to multiple medical problems, including weight gain, frequent infections, diabetes tendencies, inflammation, and damage to the immune system.
Why Probiotic Ultra 40?
1) High potency. 15,000,000,000 (15 billion) cells per capsule is a lot of bacteria, assuring a clinically relevant dose. The number of each type of bacteria is documented on the label, assuring potency of each strain. Many probiotics do not specify the dose of the individual bacteria, making it unclear exactly what you are getting and how much. Avoid low potency probiotics.
2) Eight strains of beneficial bacteria. We’ve included multiple strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, which are among the most researched probiotics. This “blend” assures a daily boost of each of these “good” bacteria. Providing multiple strains of bacteria supports the variety needed for optimum health.
3) Prebiotic FOS included. FOS (fructooligosaccharides) is a bacterial food, known as a “prebiotic”, that increases survival of the bacteria as they travel to your lower intestine. Prebiotics make probiotics more effective and are used in higher quality probiotics.
Dosage: Two capsules daily is recommended for adults with excess weight, diabetes type 2, metabolic syndrome, recent antibiotic use, or any of the medical conditions noted above. One capsule daily is recommended for children and for those in excellent health who are consuming a healthy diet. For children or for easy swallowing, simply open the capsule and sprinkle on food.
