Advanced Probiotics Twin Pack
WHAT MAKES LIFESTREAM ADVANCED PROBIOTICS A GOOD PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENT?
Multi-strain; containing 14 powerful strains of beneficial bacteria, guaranteed 2 billion beneficial microorganism per capsule throughout the entire shelf life.
Probiotics need to have live beneficial bacteria present in large numbers to be able to exert a beneficial effect - our product shows stability of the probiotics throughout the shelf life of the product. Most probiotic capsules are only stable at the beginning of the shelf life (as stated on such labels 'at time of manufacture'). The Probiotics are micro-encapsulated to ensure survivability through the low pH (acid conditions) of the stomach.
Ideally, Probiotics should be kept at room temperature (under 25°C), out of direct sunlight, and do not need to be refrigerated. A freeze-drying process during the fermentation of the probiotic bacteria affords these convenient storage conditions.
Lifestream Advanced Probiotics is formulated in the UK by a team of experts and tested independently by accredited microbiological and analytical laboratories.
WHY TAKE PROBIOTICS?
If you are eating a perfectly balanced diet, without a lot of processed products, and have a stress-free life, you may not need probiotics as a supplementary aid to maintain your general health and immunity. However, nowadays, in the modern world, we encounter daily stress from our environment and from the foods we eat. In addition, we tend to consume many forms of chemicals such as antacids, antibiotics, food additives, alcohol and other foods and drugs, which lead to a disturbance and reduction in the concentration of beneficial bacteria within our gastrointestinal tract.
By the age of 2 or 3, most children have developed some degree of intestinal balance and a fairly effective immune system. However, as we age, environmental and nutritional factors very often disturb this balance and create the need for probiotic supplementation. The result is Dysbiosis, a disruption of the microflora and an increased susceptibility to potentially pathogenic bacteria.
Dysbiosis may be caused when we are subjected to stressors such as:
- Antibiotic therapy, anti-inflammatory steroids or chemotherapy
- Changes in food and water normally associated with travel
- Hormonal fluctuations around puberty, during menstruation, pregnancy, post-natally or during the menopause
- Immunological compromise
- Unhealthy diet
- Stress/modern lifestyle
- Infections or illness
- Malabsorption or inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis
