Are you looking for a high potency Probiotic, but prefer the convenience of a room temperature stable product you can take with you? If you’re a traveler or just looking for a probiotic that doesn’t require refrigeration, you shouldn’t have to settle for a lower quality product. Now you can have all the convenience of a shelf-stable probiotic without sacrificing potency or quality. ReNew Life, America’s #1 probiotic brand, introduces the new Ultimate Flora RTS, to revolutionize the probiotic marketplace.
No Refrigeration Required!
We’ve solved the age-old issue of forgetting to take your probiotic. Now you can remember to take your probiotic every day because you’ll see it on the counter at room temperature, instead of tucked away in the refrigerator. Ultimate Flora RTS (Room Temperature Strains) Probiotics are specially formulated to be kept at room temperature, or 77 degrees.
Potency Until Expiration
If you look carefully, many probiotic formulas list the number of total probiotic cultures at time of manufacture, not expiration. Who knows how many live bacteria will be present by the time you take it?! Ultimate Flora RTS Probiotics are guaranteed to provide at least 15 Billion live cultures per capsule all the way to their expiration date if stored at or below 77 degrees.
3 Unique Formulas for Various Health Needs
With specially blended mixtures of both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria (Ls and Bs) probiotic strains, there’s something for everyone in the Ultimate Flora RTS Probiotic line. Daily Probiotic features 10 strains with an equal amount of both Ls and Bs to support digestive and immune health in both the small and large intestines. The all-Lactobacillus Women’s Formula promotes the most prevalent type of beneficial bacteria in the vagina to help support balanced levels of vaginal yeast and urinary health. Finally, Ultimate Flora RTS Colon Care Probiotic contains only Bifidobacteria strains, the native bacteria found in the colon and the type that most often declines with age.
Double Foil Blister Packs for Ultimate Protection
So what keeps the Probiotics stable at room temperature? A key to retaining the best freshness and potency is protecting probiotic cultures from damaging factors, such as moisture. Double Foil Blister Packages are not only convenient, they provide an absolute barrier from light, moisture and air. No other packaging method seals in the potency better than foil-on-foil blister packs.
Delayed Release Capsules for Ultimate Delivery
While probiotics are also utilized in the upper digestive tract, the majority of bacterial populations exist in the lower small and large intestines. So how do the good bacteria get all the way down there? Probiotics must travel through the harsh stomach environment and be delivered to the intestines to colonize. Delayed-release capsules are engineered to remain intact through the stomach and begin dissolving in the intestine, where they are needed most.
Taking the right probiotic supplement can help promote digestive health, urinary and vaginal health, bowel regularity and strengthen the body’s natural immune defenses. Choose one of the unique Ultimate Flora RTS Probiotics, and you’ll know you have the “best probiotic in the room.”
Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, accounting for 25% of all the deaths in the U.S. You may be thinking that if you don’t have heart disease in your family you’re in the clear, but think again. While genetics and age play a role, most experts agree that certain lifestyle factors can promote heart disease. You shouldn’t wait until you’re diagnosed with heart disease to take action. Your doctor will help you keep track of important numbers such as fasting blood glucose levels, cholesterol and blood pressure, but here are some other numbers to keep in mind when planning your heart healthy diet.
500 – 1,000
Omega-3 fats found in fish oil are known to support healthy cholesterol levels and overall cardiovascular health. The American Heart Association recommends 500 – 1,000 mg of combined EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids if oily fish is lacking in your diet. For maximum cardiovascular support try a pharmaceutical grade omega-3 supplement such as Super Critical Omega. This powerful fish oil provides over 1,000 mg of omega-3 in just one softgel, plus 1,000 IU of vitamin D3, another essential nutrient.
Try to consume about 35 grams of fiber or more per day. The American Heart Association says that dietary fiber, especially soluble fiber, is associated with decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. This may be due to fiber’s role in absorbing and helping to eliminate cholesterol from the body. Because it’s tough to get enough fiber in the diet, try adding a high quality fiber supplement to your daily routine.
A low sodium diet with just 1,500 mg or less of sodium per day can help prevent high blood pressure and heart disease. To reduce your sodium intake, try reducing store-bought and processed foods and use fresh pepper and other herbs instead of salt when seasoning foods.
Keep your sweet tooth tamed with just 6 or fewer teaspoons of added sugars per day. This number may look low, but the average American consumes over 20 teaspoons per day! Research has shown that there is a correlation between high sugar consumption and heart disease risk. Try fresh fruit or dark chocolate to curb your longing for sweets, or try a natural supplement designed to help ease sugar cravings.
So how do your numbers stack up? If you’re not sure, try keeping track for a couple of weeks to see how heart healthy your diet is. Check out other heart healthy supplements that provide even more cardiovascular support with oat beta glucan, CoQ10 and hawthorn. Eat whole, fresh and organic foods whenever possible, and keep an eye on the nutrition facts label. Arming yourself with information is the best way to stay on track toward a healthy heart.
