The inside story on gut health
The human digestive system is like a flowing river. From the mouth through the esophagus, stomach, and intestines, your digestive system organs work to transport nourishment smoothly... and, ideally, not too fast or too slow.
And like a healthy river, the digestive system teems with life. Trillions of bacteria, yeast, and other microorganisms all along the GI tract make up our “microbiome.” Probiotics (friendly bacteria and yeasts) help us digest food, produce vitamins, eliminate toxins, and more. Much of our immune system is based in the gut, so when your gut is supported and healthy, the rest of our health is supported, too. In fact, the busy microbiome community is so important for how we function that it’s known as the “second brain.”
So how can you support a happy, healthy microbiome? Scientific research shows that consuming certain clinically identifiable strains of probiotics can powerfully support your internal ecosystem, promoting healthy digestion and boosting your immune defenses.*
