Proper balance of the intestinal flora is imperative for digestive and overall health. While it is important for the body to fend of pathogens or ‘bad bacteria’, the body’s beneficial bacteria must be supported and replenished as well. A daily dose of probiotics has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to support the proper balance of microorganisms within the gastrointestinal tract. However, not all probiotics are created equal.
LA Nutrition’s Daily Defense Probiotic blend features seven carefully selected live cultures, each with unique benefits and strengths. DE111 supports the production of healthy gut flora and promotes the healthy digestion of fats and complex carbohydrates. Lactobacillus rhamnosus has been shown to reduce gastrointestinal issues such as constipation and bloating, and has even been linked to improvement of the symptoms of depression and anxiety. Bifidobacterium longum can specifically target intestinal inflammation, while lactobacillus plantarum helps to maintain the integrity of the gut lining. Bifidobacterium breve possesses a superior ability to aid digestion of a wide variety of foods. Finally, lactobacillus acidophilus, perhaps the best-known live culture, reduces pathogens and improves overall gastrointestinal health.
The combination of these live cultures creates a powerful blend to soothe, support, maintain, and balance the intestines natural bacterial for increased systemic health and metabolic efficiency.
