The Probiotic Spore That Powers Up Immune HealthYou probably know that probiotic supplements are good for your digestive health. These friendly bacteria help balance your intestinal tract and helps your digestion run smoothly. But did you also know that probiotics are important for supporting immune health, too? That’s because 80% of your immune cells reside in your intestinal tract. Basically, the more friendly bacteria in your gut, the better your digestion—and the stronger your immune system. In fact, one British study found that volunteers who took probiotics daily shortened their bouts of the common cold by almost two days. Additionally, cold symptoms – headaches, coughing and sneezing – were reduced in severity.1
The Fatal Flaw in Most Probiotic SupplementsPick up a probiotic supplement and you’ll see that it contains a blend of lactobacillus and bifidobacteria. That’s because different types of probiotic bacteria do different things. Lactobacillus Acidophilus, the friendly bacteria that’s found in yogurt, helps defend against yeast infections as well as relieve diarrhea and bowel discomfort. Bifidobacterium longum can help reduce inflammation and protect against allergies. And while these friendly bacteria deliver health benefits, they aren’t always stable. Many times, they’re destroyed by powerful stomach acids, so only a small fraction of the bacteria make it to your intestinal tract. What’s more, these bacteria also tend to lose potency when they’re exposed to light and heat and need to be refrigerated. That’s why you should look for a supplement that contains spore-forming bacteria. Spore probiotics withstand stomach acids and remain potent and stable at room temperature for months.
Bacillus Subtilis DE111® – The Science-Backed “Superstrain” for ultra-digestive and immune protectionBacillus Subtilis DE111® is a patented probiotic spore that’s shown in human studies to crowd out undesirable bacteria, repopulate levels of good bacteria and promote healthy intestinal balance. In one study, volunteers taking DE111® experienced a significant increase in the levels of healthy microflora in their guts. Plus, the volunteers also experienced an improvement in GI symptoms, regularity, and bowel habits.2 And since DE111® is a probiotic spore, it stays alive throughout the GI tract and colonizes in the intestine where it can do the most good. Where to find DE111® New GutProtect™ by EffiHealth contains 5 billion CFU’s of Bacillus Subtilus DE111®, which is the clinically studied dose. It also contains EpiCor®, a unique whole-food yeast that’s shown to support immune health as well as overall digestive health GutProtect is designed to give your immune system a huge boost by supporting the part of your body where your immune cells live — your gut.
