Supported by a body of scientific research, ProVen Probiotics for Adults includes 25 billion Lab4 beneficial bacteria per capsule. It includes strains of acidophilus and bifidus bacteria for immune support, including the Bifidobacterium animalis subspecieslactis which has proven benefits for optimising immune function. It also contains key nutrients to provide additional support for digestion, immunity (vitamins C and D, zinc and selenium) and skin disorders such as eczema.
The microbiome is made up of many different species of bacteria, some of which are considered ‘good’ and others termed ‘bad’. These bacteria line the gut wall and help stop toxins and harmful substances passing through the gut into the body. If this balance is affected it can lead to digestive symptoms such as bloating and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The stress of modern lifestyles has been shown to reduce the levels of friendly bacteria and give the unfriendly bacteria species a chance to flourish. Stressors include a high sugar diet, environmental toxins, lack of nutrients, alcohol, illness (especially food poisoning) and medications (particularly antibiotics).
ProVen Probiotics for Adults also contains a small amount of FOS (fructooligosaccharides), which provide food for the friendly bacteria to grow. Triphase and StabilityMax technology guarantees potency to the end of shelf life. These probiotics can be stored at room temperature.
As a food supplement, take one or two capsules daily with food for a period of 1-4 months, depending on personal need.
Thereafter it is usually possible to reduce to one capsule a day with food, to provide a maintenance dose.
Do not swallow capsules with hot drinks as heat can kill bacteria.
