Why take probiotics?

Within your body’s digestive system, there’s a complex, unique microbiome filled with bacteria and other beneficial microbes. A diverse, balanced and abundant microbiome has been shown to be important to an overall healthy you. Simply put, probiotics are live bacteria. When this good bacteria is added to your daily routine, it helps promote a balanced gut to support your digestive and immune health.* And that means you can focus on accomplishing your wellness goals!

What do probiotics do for you?

Taking a probiotic supplement can help maintain the beneficial balance of bacteria in your gut.* Probiotics can assist with occasional digestive upset and can aid the body’s natural defenses in the digestive tract, where over 70 percent of the immune system resides.*

Probiotics and Digestive Health

While there’s still a lot to be learned about the diversity of probiotic strains and their benefits, up4® Probiotics supplements include selectively chosen blends, featuring Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS®-1. DDS®-1 is backed by over 35 years of clinical research in the areas of digestive and immune health benefits. It is also one of the few probiotic strains researched to be beneficial in all age groups, including children.
