Probiotics...did you know 80% of our immunity comes from our gut?We have a symbiotic relationship (life-enhancing for both parties) with some bacteria and a parasitic (life-stealing) relationship with others. The correct ratio for health and wellness is considered to be about 85% good to 15% bad. Unfortunately, most people, especially with our Western lifestyle and poor nutritional habits, will not have this healthy ratio between beneficial & pathogenic bacteria. We are faced with many threats to the beneficial bacteria in the gut from chlorinated drinking water to overly processed foods. The "good" bacteria in your gastrointestinal system can only provide you with optimum health if the proper balance of different types of bacteria is maintained in your gut. This is where Flora’s new line of convenient, shelf-stable probiotics comes in. Flora’s Complete Care Probiotic is a full-spectrum blend of 6 strains professionally formulated to provide balance to the entire intestinal tract. A variety of both Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium ensure a blend that more closely approximates the normal composition of intestinal flora. Complete Care Probiotic will provide daily support for the maintenance of healthy flora and support gastro-intestinal health.* Each capsule provides 27 billion CFU at time of manufacture. Flora's Women’s Care Probiotic is designed to address the specific needs of a woman’s body and includes 8 strains of beneficial bacteria including a high level of Lactobacillus species. Lactobacillus strains produce lactic acid, which helps to maintain natural pH balance and supports healthy yeast balance.* This formula is designed to support daily digestive and vaginal health.* Women typically require a higher amount of probiotics, which is why we packed a whopping 75 billion CFU per capsule at time of manufacture. Why choose Flora probiotics? Each strain used goes through an extensive probiotic characterization process, ensuring that it is resistant to gastric acid and bile, able to compete with other bacteria, is absent of antibiotic resistant genes, and is able to effectively co-culture with human cells. Acting in synergy, each probiotic strain used makes a distinct contribution to support gastrointestinal health.* Flora also utilizes human strains which are the only ones that will implant and reproduce in the human intestinal tract, the only exception is L. plantarum which is of plant origin in the Women’s Care formulation. Flora’s formulas also contain a wider variety of strains, which is more reflective of a normal healthy digestive system. In addition, we identify each strain and the % included in each capsule on our label so you know exactly what you are getting. No enteric coating is required because the strains selected are resistant to bile and gastric acid. So, go ahead and try our new, convenient line of probiotics…no refrigeration required.
