Not all probiotic supplements deliver good bacteria that actually survive digestion, so the probiotics do not stick around to repopulate the microbiota. What goes in gets eliminated, and that’s waste on many levels!
The probiotics in FloraFood are different because they actually increase the presence of three beneficial species of good bacteria in your gut: Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum. All three species have been found in infants, so FloraFood reintroduces naturally occurring bacteria into your microbiota.
When you take FloraFood, the good bacteria begin their journey through the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the passage through your stomach’s acidic environment. Research shows that
Lactobacillus gasseri can survive these acidic conditions for at least 90 minutes.
The journey continues into the small and large intestines, the walls of which are lined with tightly packed, hair-like structures called microvilli. Lactobacillus gasseri have the ability to attach themselves to microvilli, which is where the purpose of the journey unfolds.
FloraFood probiotics are all about increasing the diversity and number of good bacteria by sticking around to become part of your microbe population. The addition of these beneficial microbes helps maintain balance in your microbiota, improving digestion, immunity and nutrient production, just to name a few positives about good bacteria.
Research continues to uncover health benefits of good bacteria in the microbiota. FloraFood helps to enhance this inner ecosystem of microbes. A prime example is that repopulating your gut with its probiotics helps to promote intestinal pH balance, creating an environment in which the good bacteria thrive and the bad bacteria find it difficult to survive—another aspect of the
