Take Care Of Yourself

It’s all about balance! Our body is host to about 100,000,000,000,000 (100 trillion) microbes, most in our upper and lower intestine where they live and grow, aid in digestion, absorption and represent more than 70% of the immune system. Not all gut microbes, of course, are beneficial. But, while both beneficial and harmful microbes are always present, it is the balance that is critical to a flourishing microflora and our health; we need the beneficial microbes to stay in charge for a happy healthy gut (and host).

The balance of the microbes in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is greatly affected by diet, antibiotics (which unfortunately kills good microbes also), disease and aging. Probiotic products can therefore provide special benefit to aging consumers and to people faced with challenging life situations such as stress, antibiotic treatment, or travel.

Regular consumption of probiotics, like Lactobacillus (Acidophilus,Casei) and Bifido bacteria, help keep the balance. Lactobacillus uses many of the foodstuffs, making it harder for harmful bacteria to survive. In the process they also produce acids that suppress the growth of harmful bacteria. Bifido bacteria do much of the same but play a greater role further down the tract, in the colon. Another way to stimulate the beneficial bacteria is the intake of dietary fibers (prebiotics); non-digestible food ingredients beneficial microbes thrive on.

Take care of yourself; daily or frequent consumption of our Drinkable Yogurt will provide you with both pro- and prebiotics and stimulate an optimal balance in your GI tract, all with a sugar level lower than almost any yogurt on the shelfs.

Pre- & Probiotics

Drinkable Yogurt

Probiotic literally means “for life.” Probiotics are live, microbial cultures that, if consumed in sufficient numbers and frequency, provide health benefits to their human hosts. Probiotics have been linked to improved lactose digestion, decreased incidence and duration of diarrheal illness, and improved immune system function.

Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients (dietary fibers) that stimulate the growth and activity of the beneficial microflora in the gut, enhancing their functional benefits. They also increase calcium absorption. We add Inulin to our Drinkable Yogurt, a natural dietary fiber, derived from the chicory root. Providing pro- and prebiotics simultaneously creates a symbiotic effect; they enhance each other’s benefits.
