Support for digestion and immunity
Taking friendly bacteria in a supplement can help to re-balance the levels of bacteria in the gut and ProVen Probiotics Adult Acidophilus and Bifidus - 25 Billion, contains Lab4, the most comprehensively studied group of friendly bacteria in the UK.
Our digestive system (gut) is central to supporting our health - it contains more than 70% of the body's immune system cells and 10 times more bacteria than we have cells in our whole body.
Maintain and balance your microflora
Supporting our gut can help to support our general health and a balanced and healthy microbiome (gut bacteria) is a key element in this. A normal gut contains both 'good' and 'bad' bacteria and an imbalanced microbiome has been linked to many diseases (from autism and inflammatory bowel disease to depression and autoimmune conditions). The bacteria line the gut wall and help to stop toxins and harmful substances passing through the gut into the body – so ideally, we need a lot more good than bad. The ideal ratio has been estimated at 85% good to 15% bad bacteria and if this balance is affected it may lead to digestive symptoms such as bloating or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
It is important to maintain this microflora balance throughout life and the stresses of our modern lifestyles have been shown to have an impact on reducing the levels of friendly bacteria and potentially give the pathogenic bacteria a chance to become dominant. As well as the emotional and psychological stress that we all face on a daily basis, other stressors on our bodies include a high sugar intake, lack of or too much exercise, medications, environmental toxins and lack of nutrients to support our bodily processes.
The Lab4 clinical studies, conducted in Cambridge, Sheffield, Swansea, Southampton and Cardiff, have confirmed that ProVen Probiotics Adult Acidophilus and Bifidus - 25 Billion provides real benefits in supporting digestive and immune health.

Recommended daily intake
As a food supplement, for best results take two capsules per day with food for a period of 1-4 months, depending on personal need. Thereafter it is usually possible to reduce to one capsule a day with food, to provide a high maintenance dose.
If you experience side effects when you start taking two capsules, reduce to one capsule per day for a few weeks and then increase to the two capsules a day used in the clinical research until you personally feel that you are ready to reduce back to a maintenance dose of one capsule per day.
Serving size: 1 or 2 capsules per day
Servings per container: 30 (15 if taking 2 capsules per day)
