This optibac probiotic provides essential support to the digestive system by supplying 5 billion digestive aiding microorganisms.
Our digestive systems contain a combination of good and bad bacteria. When the levels of good bacteria are reduced within the gut this can have a negative impact on our digestive health.
Our bodies need adequate levels of good bacteria to digest food properly and ensure we receive the maximum amount of nutrients from the foods we consume.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a strain of saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast). This natural and safe microorganism has been acclaimed by many nutritional experts for its digestive aiding properties. The levels of beneficial bacteria within the gut can be reduced by a number of factors.
Diet has a huge impact on the levels of bacteria found within the gut. A diet rich in processed foods that contain high levels of saturated fats, sugar and simple carbohydrates can cause the good bacteria to die off. People who have just finished a course of antibiotics often have extremely low levels of bacteria in their digestive system. Many nutritional experts would recommend a good probiotic after completing a course of antibiotics.
This probiotic contains digestive adding microorganisms that help to promote optimal digestive health.
Each capsule contains a massive 5 billion live cultures. Saccharomyces boulardii has a strong resistance to heat, humidity and stomach acidity levels. The ability of the live cultures to resist these factors ensures more of them arrive safely at the gut. This natural food supplement may help to prevent diarrhoea, travel tummy, bloating and flatulence after eating.
