Did you know that everyone’s gut flora composition—the natural microorganisms that support digestive, immune and overall health—is different?* This flora population is like a fingerprint, your fingerprint. What’s more, the balance of flora in a woman’s body is also unique, making her beneficial flora needs unique as well.
Probiotics Blended Just for Women
A big concern for women is the balance of bacteria in the vaginal and urinary tracts, areas that are particularly sensitive to an imbalance.† The gut bacterial balance ripples out to affect the body’s overall bacterial balance, including the vaginal and urinary bacterial balance, making the health of a woman’s intestines particularly important.
New Ultimate Flora Women’s Complete 90 Billion is blended specifically for a woman’s body and features an ultra-potent 90 billion probiotic cultures in every capsule. The probiotic blend in this formula:
- Is made up of 12 select GPS (Gut Protection System) probiotic strains, which have been scientifically researched for their health benefits. †
- Features a higher amount of GPS Lactobacillus strains (54 billion). The Lactobacillus probiotic strain family is especially beneficial for women as it is the most prevalent healthy bacteria type found in the vaginal and urinary tract. †
- Also contains a blend of colon and bowel supporting GPS Bifidobacteria strains (36 billion) to promote optimum digestive health and regularity in women. †
Stress makes women particularly susceptible to disturbances in digestive and bowel health, as well as urogenital health. Add the use of antibiotics to the mix (antibiotics can wipe out all bacteria, good and bad) and a woman’s need for a healthy gut flora balance has never been more crucial.
Ultimate Flora Women’s Complete is easily incorporated into the busiest of lifestyles. Just one delayed-release capsule each day provides all 90 billion probiotic cultures as part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. † The Lactobacillus strains in this formula produce beneficial compounds that help the body naturally maintain a healthy balance of yeast and digestive bacteria.† The Bifidobacterium strains in this blend help target a women’s bowel health and colon needs.†
Consider adding these prebiotic foods (foods that help “feed” the beneficial bacteria in the gut) to your diet, too:
- Chicory root, dandelion greens, Jerusalem artichoke, asparagus
- Garlic, leeks, onion
- High fiber foods
ReNew Life has made yet another improvement to our best-selling line of Ultimate Flora probiotics. In addition to other features that set us apart such as delayed release capsules and the highest possible potencies, we now package the majority of our Ultimate Flora probiotics in Fresh-Assure blue glass bottles.
Why is glass so great? The major benefit of deep blue glass is that it helps to shield probiotic cultures from potentially damaging light, heat, and moisture. In fact, contrary to popular belief, it’s moisture not heat that can affect overall potency and probiotic culture count over time. Because probiotics are live bacteria, their viability depends on proper storage. Keeping probiotics in the refrigerator is the first step, but glass is the ultimate container of choice for keeping moisture out and maximum probiotic potency in.
Another plus to using glass over plastic is that glass is the “greenest” storage option for probiotics yet. Apart from helping to maximize the benefits of these amazing good bacteria, the Fresh-Assure blue glass bottles are reusable and recyclable. It’s easy to see why most health food store shoppers prefer glass over any other container.
So whether you need a daily maintenance probiotic or prefer a more potent probiotic for critical needs, take your pick from the Ultimate Flora line of premium probiotic supplements in your health food store’s refrigerator. Not only do we have the highest potency available, we’re now utilizing the best possible packaging for that extra level of quality more health food store shoppers prefer.
