Probiotics for Immune System

ACIDOPHILUS AND BIFIDUS PLUS TOTAL IMMUNE AND ENERGY SUPPORT Our intestines naturally contain a wide range of friendly bacteria, but their numbers can be reduced due to the stresses of our modern hectic and fast-moving lifestyle. Imbalance in the intestinal microflora can lead to feelings of bloating and intestinal discomfort and other symptoms such as lowered energy and reduced immunity. One of the ways probiotics promote human health is by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Probiotics compete for nutrients for growth and proliferation that would otherwise be utilized by pathogens. Probiotics change the composition and metabolites of the intestinal flora, reduce the number of harmful bacteria, display anti-genotoxic and anti-gene mutation function, and inhibit enzymes in the colon. Besides, through the interaction with colonic cells probiotics regulate the immune system If you would like to find out more please do not hesitate to contact ProVen Probiotics and speak to our resident in-house nutritionist.
