The importance of digestive health
Our digestive system (gut) is central to supporting our health – it contains more than 70% of the body’s immune system and 10 times more bacteria than we have cells in our whole body, known as the gut microbiome.†
The gut microbiome is a highly complex and dynamic community of microorganisms, most of which are bacteria. More than 1,000 different species/strains of bacteria have been identified with enough frequency to be considered a ‘normal’ part of the human microbiota.†
The overall relationship of the microbiome to our body is both favorable and beneficial, supporting the function of many aspects of physiology, including immune and digestive function. There are, however, some species and strains that may have negative attributes under certain circumstances, potentially producing toxins and acting as opportunistic pathogens. One of the primary functions of our favorable bacteria is to help exclude and/or inhibit these pathogenic species from causing harm.†
The stresses of our modern lifestyles have been shown to have an impact on the balance of bacteria in our microbiome, potentially allowing the more pathogenic species to overgrow. This is also impacted by our modern diets and can result in symptoms such as digestive discomfort, gas, diarrhea and constipation.
Multi-strain probiotics with fiber and gut-supporting nutrients
ProVen Probiotics Total Intestinal & Digestive Support combines all of the benefits of the extensively-studied Lab4 probiotics (strains that are naturally present in our intestines) with other key nutrients to support our gastrointestinal tract. The product is a powder provided in individual sachets, which can be mixed with water to make up a delicious tropical flavor drink containing real fruit powder.
Each sachet provides 25 billion of the extensively-researched Lab4 probiotics consortium, combined with inulin which acts as a prebiotic to feed the probiotics and help them colonize the intestine.
