Beneficial Bacteria Are Vital for Good Digestive Health
Your body’s functions are fueled by the food you eat. So, maintaining digestive health is an important factor in getting the nutrients you need. Because your digestive system is responsible for breaking down and absorbing all the nutrients from the food and supplements you consume.
Digestion is a multi-step process. It begins in your mouth and ends when wastes are eliminated.
Your gastrointestinal (GI) system is central to the process. It hosts trillions of bacteria—also known as microflora. Your body and its microflora adapted to form a mutually beneficial relationship. The bacteria help your digestive process function properly. The bacteria flourish because they feed on the by-products of digestion. This is why—out of your whole body—the highest amount of bacteria is found in your gut microbiome.
Bacteria serve many purposes in the digestion and metabolism process, including:
- Supporting the activity of enzymes that break down fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols into useable forms.
- Producing some nutrients—bacteria in the gut make vitamin K, biotin, and more.
- Helping to remove toxins and wastes from the body through the normal passage of stool through the colon.
There are thousands of different species of bacteria in your digestive tract. They can be both beneficial or potentially harmful. Maintaining the right balance of the right bacteria for you is the key.
A number of things can upset the stability of your intestinal environment, including the following:
- Occasional stress
- Poor diet and hydration
- Lack of rest or changes in sleep patterns
- Travel and exposure to new microbes
The normal aging process also impacts the stability of your gut microbiome. Older adults may have differences in their gut caused by changes in their nutritional status and lifestyle.
To keep everything working smoothly, it is vital that you drink plenty of water; exercise; and consume a proper diet that includes plenty of fiber from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. In addition to eating a healthful diet, you can also add a probiotic supplement to support a healthy balance.*
What does a probiotic supplement do? The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations defines probiotics as “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” That’s a predictably stuffy way for an official agency to say that a probiotic supplement will help replenish beneficial bacteria to help keep you healthy.*
USANA Probiotic delivers goodness to your gut with probiotic bacteria specifically selected for their belly benefits.*
Bring Balance to Your Belly’s Bacteria with USANA Probiotic
Aid good digestion and support your overall health with USANA Probiotic. It supports harmony in your GI tract by helping to establish a better microbial balance with a boost of friendly bacteria.*
There are many probiotic supplements available on the market today. USANA Probiotic makes an excellent choice for two key reasons: the strains and the amounts used.
1—contains two strains of bacteria shown to colonize the intestines and deliver health results
Each stick pack of USANA Probiotic contains a unique 50/50 mixture of two of the most studied probiotic bacteria strains: Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis (BB-12®) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LGG®). These bacteria are similar to the Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus that are part of a natural gut flora (primarily found in the colon). Dozens of studies on these strains have demonstrated benefits for digestive health and immunity.*
These strains are so effective, in part, because they survive transit through the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach to colonize the intestines. Reaching the intestines alive is essential for getting results from your probiotic. The strength of the strains is boosted by a small amount of inulin fiber in the formula. Inulin acts a prebiotic, which feeds your natural beneficial bacteria and may further support establishment of Bifidobacterium in the intestine.*
2—delivers a reliable amount of live bacteria to provide real benefits—even after 18 months
Generally, at least one billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of total active bacteria are needed daily to provide probiotic effects throughout the GI tract. But most of the yogurts or other foods people rely on to get their beneficial bacteria contain an unspecified or unverified number of viable bacteria.
So, if you’re relying on yogurts to replenish your beneficial bacteria, it certainly won’t hurt your health. But it might not really be helping it either.
Take away the guesswork with a product that you can trust will deliver an amount of bacteria with real belly benefits. USANA Probiotic is guaranteed to contain 12 billion CFU of active bacteria when it’s made—a level shown to be effective in clinical studies.*
And even months after manufacture, USANA’s 12 billion CFU-level is still stable.
Stability can be a challenge with some strains of bacteria—even when refrigerated. So, their shelf-life is short. But USANA’s blend is designed to remain stable at room temperature (25° C) for 18 months. This stability has been verified in independent and in-house tests. And, you can preserve your probiotics even longer by storing them in the refrigerator (which is advised in hot or humid climates).
Keep Your Tummy Calm
Occasional mild gas, constipation, bloating, and diarrhea can all be embarrassing and uncomfortable. You can help reduce the chance of physical discomfort by creating an ideal environment for healthy digestion with USANA Probiotic. (If you often have concerns with digestive issues, please talk to your doctor.)*
By maintaining a balanced digestive system, USANA Probiotic helps keep things moving. It has benefits for bowel regularity. It aids consistent waste elimination from the body through the regular passing of stool and normalization of stool consistency. It can also help maintain digestive health and comfort while traveling.*
Occasional stress—from travel, hectic schedules, or other lifestyle disruptions—can also take a toll on your digestion and cause minor GI upsets.
To help ward off any unpleasant side effects during stressful times, make supplements like USANA Probiotic part of your self-care. Taking vitamins and minerals, probiotics, and magnesium supplements for one month has been shown to help reduce levels of psychological stress and fatigue and improve feelings of well-being. A study in marathon runners also found that three months of probiotic supplementation was supportive in restoring normal GI function after race day.*
Supporting a healthy gut with USANA Probiotic can also help you stay well, even when you’re under pressure. Research suggests that probiotics, including Bifidobacterium BB-12 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG, may play a role in sustaining healthy immune function.*
More immune cells are found in the gut than in any other region of the body. This makes sense, because a healthy GI tract is a central line of immune defense. Because it serves as a protective barrier.*
USANA Probiotic supports immunity through strength in numbers. Your natural bacteria line the wall of your GI tract to help support a strong barrier and maintain normal function. By delivering more friendly bacteria to your gut with USANA Probiotic, you are helping reinforce this activity. There’ll be even more good bacteria to fill attachment sites on the intestinal wall. So, your gut barrier will be fortified, helping you to stay healthy.*
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG
- Bifidobacterium BB-12
Adults, add the contents of one stick pack to your favorite cold food or beverage and consume immediately. Take one stick pack every 1–2 days, or as needed to promote digestive health.*
Keep out of reach of children. Consult your physician if you have an autoimmune disorder, are taking immunosuppressant medication, are pregnant or nursing, taking a prescription drug or have a medical condition.
