The human gut contains approximately 500 different species of bacteria. That is over 100 trillion bacteria! Certain species of bacteria, some belonging to the genera Bifidobacterium or Lactobacillus are the “friendly” health promoting bacteria in your intestinal tract. 70+ percent of your immune cells are located in your digestive tract. Having a healthy immune system requires a healthy digestive tract.

Here is a short list factors that can cause an imbalance of the digestive tract:

1. Alcohol
2. Stress
3. Diets high in fat & low in fiber
4. Aging

Daily supplementation with a prebiotic/probiotic product can help normalize the delicate balance of intestinal bacteria required to keep your digestive tract healthy, which in turn can help keep your whole body healthy.
