Providing your body with a regular source of “friendly” bacteria is important. There was a time when you could get healthy bacteria through foods but today most foods are so overly processed and pasteurized that the healthy bacteria aren’t alive by the time you ingest them. That’s why a daily probiotic is so valuable. There’s an ecosystem of bacteria (known as the intestinal microbiota) living in your intestines, which contains both “good” and “bad” bacteria. When the balance is tipped toward “bad” bacteria due to many factors including lack of sleep, stress or other causes, it may affect your digestive health and overall well-being.
The Life’s Abundance Probiotic formula was developed with an award winning probiotics manufacturer in the USA, focused on supplying the highest quality strains that are vigorously tested using top technological advances.
Two of the most important criteria for evaluating a probiotic are whether it can survive passage through the stomach by resisting gastric acidity and survive the intestines by resisting bile acids - both of which our probiotic formula have proven to do in research studies.
Life’s Abundance Probiotic formula has a potency guarantee of at least 25 Billion CFUs per capsule and a shelf life of 2 years at room temperature. Unlike some other probiotic formulas with shorter shelf lives, ours is guaranteed to stay stable, longer at room temperature.
One of the main bacteria in the gut, Lactobacillus acidophilus produces vitamin K and lactase. This probiotic readily colonizes on the walls of the small intestine and creates an unfriendly environment for bad bacteria. It adapts well to the human body because of its human origin and it is acid- and bile-resistant for intestinal survival.
Present in the body throughout all stages of life, this most widely studied probiotic supports gastrointestinal health. Having a high proportion of bifidobacterium in the gut is broadly considered to be beneficial for immune and digestive health. Bifidobacterium lactis tolerates digestive conditions extremely well, maximizing the body’s exposure to this beneficial probiotic.
Converts many different types of sugars into lactic acid via fermentation. This helps to lower the pH in the lower intestine.
Present in multiple stages of digestion, this probiotic is known for maintaining a healthy balance with yeast and candida. Aids in the release of minerals from food during digestion, particularly, magnesium and zinc.
Aren't the best probiotics refrigerated?
Advances in technology have resulted in a number of viable shelf stable strains. Shelf stable products provide an alternative to products that rely on proper refrigeration over the course of shipping, storage and retail shelf life in order to maintain their efficacy.
Why should I choose foods that are non-GMO?
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. Genetic modification is a technique that alters living cells to produce new chemicals and functions in plants and animals. Many food scientists question the safety of genetically modified foods because they do not know if eating GMO foods over a lifetime can damage our health.
What is vegan?
A vegan is a person who does not eat or use animal products.
What does gluten free mean and why is it important?
Gluten is a protein found in certain grains including wheat, barley and rye. Gluten is the sticky protein that gives bread dough its elastic quality.
To people with celiac disease, a gluten-free diet is very important because it is the only known treatment for celiac disease, an autoimmune digestive disease. People with celiac cannot digest gluten, which causes inflammation in the digestive system and affects the small intestine's ability to absorb nutrients from food. Symptoms of celiac disease include diarrhea, bloating, fatigue, and anemia.
People with gluten sensitivity have similar symptoms to those with celiac disease but test negative for it as well as wheat allergies. These people may feel fatigued, depressed, bloated and have abdominal pain.
Gluten-free grains include rice, corn, quinoa and buckwheat.
I have noticed “soy free” foods lately and I want to know if soy products are unhealthy?
Soy is one of the top food allergies, especially among babies and children. Symptoms of soy allergy are typically mild, although anaphylaxis is possible. People avoiding GMOs may avoid soy since more than 90% of soybeans grown in the U.S. are genetically modified.
Soy can disrupt thyroid function which may lead to hypothyroidism and thyroid problems.
Soy contains phytoestrogens, compounds that mimic human estrogen.
Is eating dairy free healthy?
People may go dairy free if they are lactose-intolerant, have a milk allergy or are vegan.
People with lactose intolerance do not have the enzyme lactase which helps to digest milk and they can experience diarrhea, nausea, bloating and cramps when eating dairy products.
Milk allergies, which are one of the top 8 food allergies, occur either minutes or hours after having milk or milk products and can cause hives, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea and cramps.
People may also avoid dairy for ethical reasons or believe it helps keep their skin clear.
Sugar is a natural ingredient so why do I care if there’s no sugar added?
Eating too much sugar has been linked to inflammation throughout the body. It is important to check labels since manufacturers frequently add sugar to many products that you would not think of as sweet, such as pasta sauces, chicken nuggets, cured meats, and ketchup. Also, sugar comes in many forms such as cane syrup, high fructose corn syrup and crystalline fructose.
What’s wrong with artificial colors?
Artificial colors may cause hyperactivity and behavioral changes in children.
What’s wrong with artificial preservatives?
Some artificial preservatives have been linked to increased risks for illnesses.
What are the manufacturer’s credentials?
This dietary supplement is manufactured by a company that is GMP certified and FDA regulated facility in the USA.
