FlorAssist® Balance by Life Extension offers a new way to help maintain the proper balance of intestinal flora.
While people use probiotics for intestinal health, compelling new evidence indicates that they have a broad-spectrum of health benefits.1-6 Scientists are finding that not having the proper balance of good-to-bad bacteria can wreak havoc throughout the body.7-11 One of the complications many commercial probiotics face is their inability to overcome hurdles in the digestive tract before hitting their target area - an aspect that can greatly limit their beneficial effects.12
FlorAssist® Probiotic liquid vegetarian capsules utilize a "dual encapsulation" technology to combat the shortcomings of many commercial probiotics, delivering unprecedented amounts of live bacterial colonies to where your body needs them.
FlorAssist® Probiotic liquid vegetarian capsules:
- Contain probiotic strains that are acid resistant, protecting them from stomach acid that can destroy the viability of the strains
- Have dual encapsulation technology, keeping the capsule intact longer, and ensuring that the probiotic reaches the small intestine
- Provide a high CFU (colony forming units) of 15 billion per capsule.
While many supplements provide just one type of bacteria, taking a probiotic with multiple varieties of good bacteria can help better fight off bad bacteria.13 FlorAssist® provides a proprietary blend of six bacterial strains. Each FlorAssist® dual capsule contains 15 Billion CFU (colony forming units) consisting of:
Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-14
Bifidobacterium lactis BL-04
Lactobacillus paracasei LPC-37
Lactobacillus rhamnosus LR-32
Bifidobacterium longum BL-05
These potent strains of probiotic bacteria adhere to the soft lining of the intestinal tract and help maintain a healthy surface and aid in support for the digestive system. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
