On account of the Agricultural Revolution and the many changes to the western diet, our bodies have experienced changes that sometimes can be detrimental because of a lack of adequate microbial exposure. That’s why using probiotics has become an essential part of maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract. Boosting the gut flora can help bring balance to the microflora and promote healthy immune and digestive systems.
Modern living has separated us from nature, and the hectic lives we lead often prevent us from eating an optimal diet. Even people who are considered to be in good health often lack a healthy microbiome. High-quality probiotics like Probiotic-3TM can introduce the right types of microorganisms into our microbiome.
Probiotic-3™ is a carefully designed formula that combines a blend of three bacterial strains that promote the health of the digestive system. Enterococcus faecium, a bacterial strain that naturally inhabits the human gastrointestinal tract, helps lower the gastrointestinal pH. It also helps block the growth of harmful bacteria by producing lactic acid as a byproduct of carbohydrate fermentation.
Clostridium butyricum is also a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract and breaks down dietary fiber into several beneficial nutrients, like butyric acid, which is an important source of nourishment for colonocytes (the cells of the lower gastrointestinal tract) and helps support our inflammatory response. Bacillus subtilis also supports the growth of E. faecium and C. butyricum as well as the growth of several strains of the beneficial Bifidobacterium species.
The three strains have been shown to help create an environment in the gut that is favorable to the growth of beneficial bacteria and unfavorable to the growth of pathogenic strains. As a result, Probiotic-3 helps promote the growth of the healthy bacteria already present in your colon. The bacterial strains have also been extensively studied as a combination and are used widely in Japan and across Asia.
The enterobacteria contained in Probiotic-3™ act in symbiosis and support healthy intestinal flora. Lactic acid and butyric acid-producing probiotics are unfavorable to the growth of pathogenic bacteria while promoting the growth of the beneficial Bifidobacterium strain.*
