Dr. Mercola Complete Probiotics
Probiotics can have a profound effect, not only on your GI tract, but for your overall health. The digestive system plays an important role to your immune system; without a healthy digestive tract your immune system would not be able to manage the many pathogens you are exposed to during the course of the day. Up to 80% of our immune system is located in our digestive tract.
Probiotics introduce friendly bacteria, or microflora, to our gastrointestinal tract. These microflora protect us from harmful bacteria, yeasts, and viruses. Occassionally, the harmful bacteria, yeasts or virusus will overwhelm our intestines, and we become ill. Exposure to chlorinated drinking water, prescription antibiotics, and excess sugar or alchohol in our diet can all effect the delicate balance between good and bad bacteria in our system.
Dr. Mercola Complete Probiotics has two highly-researched strains of beneficial bacteria -- Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Plus, it adds multiple highly beneficial strains to give added support to your digestive system.
