Are you taking a probiotic formula to help boost your digestive health? Have you really experienced a noticeable change for the better? Can you really say you are prone to heartburn and acid overrun? If the answer is no you may be taking the wrong strains or strains that are so weak and ineffective.

Lets take a peek into your digestive system. Your lower stomach and small and large intestines contain armies of friendly bacteria called probiotics. A healthy digestive system contains ample amounts of friendly bacteria that aid in nutrient absorption and help protect the body from harmful bacteria.

You can not live without good bacteria in your digestive system. Did you know they help break down the foods you eat so your body absorbs the nutrients? Did you know they help to eliminate the bad bacteria like e coli and salmonella? Did you know they help keep the lid on fungus, mold, and other pathogens so they cant gain the upper hand and run wild?

Supplementing with a Probiotic Formula from a respe4cted company is very important to ensure excellent results. It is important to have high levels of both major species, Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria. It is also important that the Probiotic Formula contain multiple strains of each of these species.

Read the labels, and youll see many of the supplements out there contain only one or two strains. When you see a formula that combines this many strains you know it is superior. Lactobacillus harnesses Bifidobacterium bifidum Lactobacillus acidophilus Lactobacillus casei Lactobacillus plantarum Lactobacillus salivarius Bifidobacterium longum Streptococccus thermophilus Lactobacillus bulgaricus Lactobacillus paracasei Bifidobacterium infantis

Also look at the labels and make sure they do not contain chemical additives, corn, gluten, MSG, pesticides, soy, fillers or artificial favors.
