Probiotics are helpful bacteria that support digestion, the immune system, vaginal and urinary tract health, and produce B vitamins. The most common types of probiotics are bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. Within each type are many strains that confer health benefits when present in sufficient amounts.
The human gut is home to 100 trillion probiotic cultures. This number is important, because it is by sheer numbers that probiotics prevent the overgrowth of yeast and pathogenic bacteria in the gut.
Probiotics in the modern world are under constant attack. Chlorine (especially in the bath or shower), birth control pills, certain drugs, tobacco, alcohol, processed foods, extreme stress, and even normal aging deplete their numbers. The only way that most of us can prevent or overcome probiotic depletion is with supplements.
Probiotics can impact every aspect of health and guard against nearly every kind of illness. They protect us primarily by limiting populations of pathogens that cause the inflammation which makes us more vulnerable to disease. They inhibit pathogens through competitive exclusion, disabling pathogen mobility, producing direct bacteria inhibiting factors, and strengthening general immunity. The most helpful probiotic supplements are those that inhibit the greatest number of pathogens in the greatest number of ways.
PureBiotics™ Restore is a blend of 12 probiotic strains (30 billion active cultures per capsule†) that are delivered in delayed-release capsules to protect them against stomach acids and packed in amber glass bottles with desiccants to guard against light, moisture, and air. The balance is about 60% bifido and 40% lacto cultures to support digestion and immunity and inhibit every major type of pathogenic bacteria. PureBiotics™ Restore is ideal for offsetting the normal depletion that occurs through time, and designed especially for men and women between the ages of 16 and 39.*
