FloraMax Probiotics Plus Digestive Support | Advanced Naturals | Probiotic 120 caps
FloraMax is an unique probiotic and prebiotic supplement. FloraMax contains bacteria that are indigenous to the human digestive system, as well as amino acids.
Probiotic FloraMax is formulated to help the body re-establish a healthy balance of bacteria. It contains only resident strains of bacteria that will actually colonize the digestive system and multiply. They are the same bacteria that inhibit the GI tract of humans. Many of the bacteria that are contained in other supplements and food products, such as yogurt, are transient strains. These bacteria are beneficial from the time of ingestion but are eliminated. They only pass through, and do not colonize or multiply. The strains used in FloraMax stay in the system and multiply, which is more beneficial in helping to re-establish a lasting balance.
Probiotics play a key role in human nutrition and health in balancing the intestinal microflora naturally. Probiotics have been used therapeutically to modulate immunity, improve digestive processes, lower cholesterol, treat rheumatoid arthritis, prevent cancer, improve lactose intolerance, and prevent or reduce the effects of atopic dermatitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, IBS, diarrhea, constipation as well as candidiasis and urinary tract infections.

Your digestive tract depends on the presence of beneficial bacterial called probiotics to function at its best and keep out harmul bacteria that would otherwise make you sick. According to Russian Medzhitov, MD, of the Yale Medical School, probiotics metabolize nutrients to enable us to absorb them more readily. Probiotics aid in the early development of the gastrointestinal system, and produce factors that prevent colonization by pathogenic bacteria. For instance in a laboratory study at Yale, (Cell, 7/23/04), researchers found that supplements of probiotics can help the intestines mend themselves and lower the risk of damage from infection. In doing so, researchers found that probiotics stimulate repair mechanisms in the epithelial cells that line the digestive tract.
