One of the many keys to promoting healthy intestinal function is understanding probiotics. Our intestines contain organisms called microflora‚ and in order to regulate these organisms and maintain a healthy digestive system‚ our bodies need probiotics‚ or good bacteria.
We naturally produce probiotics (around 400 or so types of them)‚ but certain external factors can contribute to a decrease in naturally made probiotics such as antibiotics (for illnesses) and diet. That's why Progressive Labs is proud to offer you Probiotic Broad Spectrum‚ probiotic supplements that contain 10 premium quality probiotic species as well as Progressive Labs' patented Bio-tract®‚ a process of administering the supplement's living organisms that safeguards them from the caustic stomach acids we produce. This ensures that they reach our intestines safely.
A few of the notable bacteria within this probiotic supplement are:
Of the various health related benefits of Lactobacillus acidphilus‚ its effect on the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) is noteworthy because it might have positive effects on our immune system. For instance‚ it may increase the production of cytokine (signaling molecules that regulate responses to infections‚ inflammation‚ ect)‚ phagocytic activity (cell protection)‚ and antibody production.
Research suggests that lactobacillus fermentum can help lower cholesterol by absorbing it‚ or by assimilating cholesterol into cell walls. Lactobacillus fermentum can also interfere with how the body recycles bile salt. By doing so‚ this increases the body's demand for bile salt from cholesterol‚ which would then in turn eliminate it.
This probiotic has been purported to alleviate infectious diarrhea. Additionally‚ it's possible that lactobacillus casei is able to treat gastrointestinal pathogenic bacterial diseases.
Progressive Labs' Probiotic Broad Spectrum requires no refrigeration.
