The National Institutes of health reports that 60 million to 70 million people in the u.s. are affected by digestive disorders each year, resulting in $141.8 billion in medical costs. Up to 25 percent of adults may suffer pain and discomfort from digestive issues.
Poor diet, travel, a hectic lifestyle, medication use and common everyday stress can disrupt the healthy balance of good-versus-bad bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. Good bacteria used to be more readily available in a variety of fermented or cultured food sources, such as yogurt and cheese, but overprocessing in many foods limits the availability of probiotics (good bacteria thought to be beneficial) in what we eat.
Probiotic supplements are rapidly gaining recognition as a natural, safe and effective means to restore that balance. Clinical studies are demonstrating the ability of beneficial bacteria to strengthen the digestive system and boost immune defense.
here’s what we know about the probiotics:
They promote intestinal regularity.
They are scientifically formulated to restore healthy intestinal balance during and after antibiotic therapy—a frequent cause of diarrhea.
They help to relieve the constipation side effect associated with prescription drugs such as painkillers, antidepressants and iron supplements.
They have been proven to aid calcium absorption to encourage greater bone mass.
They are clinically proven to boost the body’s natural immune system.
