Research-backed friendly bacteria for adults
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.
The digestive tract is a hollow tube that passes from the mouth to the anus and is technically outside the body – anything that isn't digested will pass straight out the other end. As well as digesting our food, one of the most important functions of the gut is to prevent toxins and foreign substances entering the body.
Thus, supporting our gut can help to support our general health and healthy gut bacteria and a balanced microflora are a key element in this. A normal gut contains both 'good' and 'bad' bacteria and an imbalanced microflora 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 or or too much exercise, environmental toxins and lack of nutrients to support our bodily processes.
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 of any product in the UK.
These clinical studies, conducted in Cambridge, Sheffield, Swansea, Southampton and Cardiff, have confirmed that ProVen 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.
