Digestion Problems? Leave It to the Pro(biotic)s

Not all bacteria are created equal, especially when it comes to your gut. While bad bacteria can be responsible for upset tummies and all other belly-related badness, good bacteria is there to help keep your intestinal flora happy and healthy so your digestive system can run properly.

Lifestyle and environmental factors can compromise the digestive system, but adding probiotics into the dietary mix can help boost the good bacteria, keeping the bad in balance and helping maintain the good, naturally. What makes ours so special? Flora’s probiotics (US/CA) are unique in that they’ve been developed to survive stomach acids so they can be as effective as possible when they reach the intestines.
Adding probiotics to your daily health regimen aids digestion, immune function, and nutrient absorption. You’ll be saying adieu to gastrointestinal discomfort and promoting other surprising aspects of your body’s overall health.
According to more and more studies like this one from Johns Hopkins University, poor gut health is being linked to larger problems such as anxiety and depression, poor overall health, and even diminished cognitive abilities. Translation? A healthy happy gut is a healthier happier you. After all, if there’s one thing we know about the body: it’s all connected. So give your gut a good dose of the good bacteria and kiss digestion problems goodbye.
