Your gut health is linked to many other bodily functions. A healthy gut is necessary for a healthy body. There are several lifestyle and environmental factors that can lead to a compromised gut.
Our modern diets are often full of processed foods. That combined with stress, age, exposure to environmental toxins and the overuse of antibiotics (in food and medicinally) can greatly impact our micobiome system. A damaged microbiome can lead to poor nutrient absorption and digestion, as well as poor mental, metabolic and immune function. Your energy levels, mood, mental health and even your weight all rely on the balance of good flora inside your GI tract.
If you’re considering a probiotic supplement, you’re off to a good start. However, be aware that not all supplements are created equal. Here are the two main reasons most probiotic supplements are ineffective:
- The probiotic bacteria are dead by the time you take them.
Probiotics are sensitive organisms. They die quickly when exposed to heat and moisture. The truth is, most probiotic supplements have no protection from these elements and are likely dead by the time you consume them. Even for the brands that require refrigeration, it is common that while in transit or in storage (the back room of the store) that they are not kept in a cold environment.
Probiotic Basics from Dr. Newton’s Naturals uses a patented BIO-tract delivery system allowing live organisms to reach deep into your intestinal tract where they’re needed most.
- The beneficial organisms do not survive your stomach acids.
Since we have damaged our microbiomes, our bodies rely on probiotics to keep things balanced. The only way to do this effectively is to ensure that the beneficial bacteria make it past the stomach acids alive so that they can colonize in our small and large intestine, where we actually need them.
Unfortunately, without protection, most of the bacteria in probiotic supplements are killed before they ever reach their destination. In lab tests, it was determined that only 4% of the beneficial probiotics in most capsules and powders survive the acidic environment in the stomach. Using our patented BIO-tract delivery system, we have increased this number to 60% – making Probiotic Basics 15 times more effective than others.
Daily ingestion of a high-quality probiotic supplement, like Probiotic Basics, can enhance not only your digestive health, but overall health and wellness.
