GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec 09, 2005 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- New NUTRILITE(R) INTESTIFLORA 7(TM) helps build a natural balance of healthy bacteria in your digestive tract for immune system benefits. Daily use of the nutritional supplement, available in a fine powder form packaged in a convenient stick pack, can support a healthy immune system and support normal digestive function and also can help with the normal digestion of dairy products.
INTESTIFLORA 7(TM) offers seven strains of live probiotics, plus a prebiotic to encourage their growth.
Probiotics are tiny organisms that help maintain the natural balance of bacteria in the intestines. The average human digestive tract has approximately 400 types of bacteria that reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and promote a healthy digestive system.
The largest group of probiotic bacteria in the intestine is lactic acid bacteria, of which Lactobacillus acidophilus, found in yogurt, is the most well known. Unlike yogurt, NUTRILITE INTESTIFLORA 7, which includes acidophilus, needs no refrigeration. The contents of the stick pack can be swallowed, sprinkled on cold foods, or mixed into cold drinks. The fine powder formulation dissolves easily and the fresh flavor makes it easy to take.
INTESTIFLORA 7(TM) joins NUTRILITE Stomach Shield(R) and NUTRILITE Digestive Enzyme Complex, rounding out NUTRILITE's collection of digestive health products to offer complete nutritional support for your digestive system. While INTESTIFLORA 7 introduces good probiotics into the intestines to keep the digestive system in balance, helping it absorb nutrients, Stomach Shield helps protect the lining of the stomach, and Digestive Enzyme Complex helps your body digest proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
