Healthy Heart: Probiotics may help keep your heart healthy by lowering LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and blood pressure. The theory stands that certain lactic acid-producing bacteria may reduce cholesterol by breaking down bile in the gut.
Although scientists haven’t uncovered the exact mechanisms behind the ability of probiotics to reduce cholesterol, the research supports the theory that probiotics like the Lactobacilli strain could be a part of your cholesterol-lowering plan which would as a result, help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Another heart health bonus that researchers uncovered is the finding that consuming probiotics regularly showed promises of lowering blood pressure. Based on a review of 9 studies, it was determined that probiotic supplements did in fact reduce blood pressure, which would have positive effects for one’s overall heart health.
Immune System Armor: Numerous probiotic strains have been shown to boost immune function and help prevent common infections, such as the common cold and flu.
One study compared the use of probiotic strains Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium (both found in our Probiotic formula) with a placebo in participants who were under the weather and found that those given the probiotic strains experienced fewer days of sickness and fewer days missed from school or work.
Another study found that use of probiotics (L. plantarum and L. paracasei), when compared with placebo, reduced the risk of acquiring common cold infections and significantly reduced symptoms.
Lean Body: One lesser known benefit from having a healthy gut is the weight management aspect. Research findings suggest that certain types of good bacteria actually allow you to “harvest” fewer calories from the foods in your diet.
Some strains of probiotics have even been associated with dropping excess fat. Bifidobacterium lactis for example has been shown through research to be beneficial for obesity prevention and weight loss.
It’s also cited through research that probiotics can improve your blood sugar control and affect sensitivity to leptin (a hormone that helps regulate appetite.) This is key for anyone struggling with type 2 diabetes.
But it isn’t just the bacteria that plays a role in keeping your body weight in check. Science-Based Probiotic also contains prebiotic fiber - A dietary component that has also shown to be associated with leaner body compositions.
Improved Digestion + Nutrient Absorption: A wide variety of probiotic strains have been shown to help reduce the symptoms of bowel disorders like ulcerative colitis, IBS and necrotizing enterocolitis - allowing you to better digest your foods without discomfort.
Along with better digestion, comes better nutrient absorption. The truth is, the human body absorbs anywhere between 10-90% of the nutrients in any given food! That’s a huge range - and consequently, this means that many of us aren’t absorbing the nutrients needed for optimal human function.
