Probiotic G.I. provides 10 billion CFU per capsule of the beneficial bacteria. Supporting healthy barrier function, gastrointestinal cell health and immune function in the G.I. tract.
Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus salivarius, Lactobacillus casei, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis and Streptococcus thermophilus.
- Beneficial microflora are crucial for proper gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) function and development.
- Probiotics are believed to support healthy GALT composition, and in turn, support barrier function, G.I. epithelial cell health and T cell function within the G.I. tract.
- The GALT helps protect intestinal mucosa from allergens and toxins and is a major component of the body’s immune system.
- It is estimated that more than 70% of the body’s B lymphocytes are found in the GALT.
- B. lactis supports healthy T cell activity and cytokine production in the intestine, at least in part by regulating transcription of genes that encode for cytokines.
- L. acidophilus promotes healthy cytokine production in the colon.
