Does it seem like January is just zipping by? How are those 2015 health resolutions coming along? Have you been eating more fiber? Cutting back on sugary soft drinks? Cooking more meals at home? Good for you! Now let’s talk probiotics.
Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that occur naturally in the digestive tract, where they promote a balanced internal environment to support digestive and immune health.‡ Because up to 80% of the immune system is found in the gut, having a healthy balance of bacteria there—meaning more good and neutral than harmful bacteria—is important for optimal health.‡ However, factors such as poor diet, stress, age, and certain medications can deplete your numbers of good bacteria and lead to digestive upsets and poor health.
If you haven’t yet discovered the benefits of taking a daily probiotic supplement, now is the perfect time do so. During the winter months and throughout the year, probiotics can offer a wide range of benefits.‡ Here are just a few!
- Help restore digestive balance‡
- Relieve occasional digestive discomfort‡
