- The NCFM® strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus—a pure probiotic strain that has been extensively studied over the last 40 years. It helps maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora‚ promote colon health‚ and supports the natural functioning of your immune and digestive systems.
- Bifidobacterium lactis—a probiotic that may increase the amount of intestinal flora in your gut‚ which may support immunity and digestion.

- Globulin Protein Concentrate—made up of immunoglobulin proteins (immune defense protein-antibodies) derived from whey to help maintain a healthy intestinal environment.
Starting at birth‚ everyone acquires a colony of beneficial bacteria to ward off infections. Your intestinal microflora (healthy bacteria) includes species such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli‚ which play an important role in your health and the prevention of disease. They represent a remarkable ecosystem that regulates immune system function. Once you acquire your quota of bacteria in the first few years of life‚ you generally maintain those same levels of bacterial species over your lifetime.
However‚ several factors can put those bacteria at risk. You can reduce the population of gut flora by taking pharmaceutical antibiotics‚ which kill good bacteria along with the bad. Frequent diarrhea‚ infections‚ and other internal complex processes can also interfere with bacterial balance. You can restore gut flora by consuming probiotic foods that contain live bacteria; good dietary sources include yogurt‚ sauerkraut‚ apple cider‚ Gouda cheese‚ and miso. However‚ a probiotic supplement may provide some help if you don’t eat those foods often.
