Nature's Sunshine Probiotic Eleven
Probiotics have received a lot of press in recent years. They are featured in yogurts and many other products advertised on television. Nature’s Sunshine Probiotics Eleven stands out from the rest with eleven different strains of probiotics and prebiotics. Most products you have seen advertised mainstream only have one strain of probiotics and no prebiotics at all.
In order to keep the digestive system functioning as it should your body needs good bacteria and other microorganisms. These beneficial flora can be negatively affected by anti-biotics, stress, and aging. Probiotics are used to replenish and encourage the growth of these essential elements.
Not only is digestion boosted by probiotics, the immune system is also made stronger. Toxins that have long set in the system are encouraged to vacate the body through improved digestion resulting in improved bowel regularity and better health. Bloating and abdominal discomfort often disappear when probiotics are used regularly. Sometimes even those pesky extra few pounds vanish!
These are real, living micro-organisms so it is important to keep them refrigerated or frozen. Recommended dosage is between 1 and 2 capsules daily with a meal. After continued use you will be able to determine what works best for your body.
Not only are there multiple, separate strains of probiotics, there are also prebiotics. Prebiotics are non-digestible food particles such as fiber and are in a sense food for the probiotics. Taking prebiotics can make up for a diet that is missing the sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables.
Acidophilus (L. Acidophilus) is the most commonly mentioned probiotics, which is part of this supplement. Additionally there are Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, L. brevis, L. bulgaricus, L. plantarum, Streptococcus thermophiles, B. infantis, B. longum, L. casei, L. salivarius and FOS (short and long chain).
The presence of both short and long chain prebiotics makes this a “full spectrum” supplement. Short chain prebiotics tend to nourish the bacteria on the right side of the colon and longer chains nourish the left. By having both, the entire colon is strengthened and proper mineral absorption is encouraged.
Nature’s Sunshine has a full line of probiotic and prebiotic supplements. Heroes Probiotic Power is digestive support specially designed with children in mind. For adults, also consider the Digestive System Pack or Intestinal System Pack. Both are 30 day packages that make it easy to get your body on the right track.
