Great health starts in your gut. Our digestive systems contain literally trillions of friendly bacteria that help protect us against invasion from harmful bacteria and pathogens. A large proportion of them live in our gut where they help us digest and synthesise nutrients.
Why Do We Need Probios?
Probios or probiotic supplements are good for us when the balance of good and bad bacteria in our gut has been disrupted. Imbalance can happen after the use of antibiotics, following illness, during stress, following travel, poor digestion, and as we get older as our digestive enzymes decrease in number.
Imbalance of gut flora can lead to a number of unpleasant symptoms, such as IBS, bloated stomach, abdominal pains, irregular bowel movements and a feeling of heaviness after eating.
Probiotics secrete natural antibiotics and stimulate the production of antiviral interferons which have been found to boost the immune system with studies showing that they reduce the symptoms and duration of the common cold.
It has also been found that supplementing biotics and helping repopulate the gut with good bacteria may help inflammation that triggers skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, and eczema.
How will Ultimate 20 Probio Help?
Ultimate 20 Probio is a high strength friendly bacteria supplement, containing 8 different specially chosen bacteria strains. There are 20 billion live microorganisms guaranteed per capsule to maintain healthy levels of helpful microbes living in our gut. Each capsule is equivalent to eating 40 pots of probiotic yoghurt but without the added sugar, dairy and fat.
The innovative, acid-resistant capsules used in this product help to ensure that the bacteria survive as they travel through the body. This means (unlike many live bacteria supplements on the market), the bacteria are delivered to, and absorbed, where they are most effective.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus: A lactic acid-forming bacteria that have been shown to help keep yeast under control in the gut.
Streptococcus thermophilus: a powerful probiotic strain that has well-researched health benefits.
