Benefits for everyone: Probiotics are good for men, women, kids & the elderly!
Probiotics are Essential for Digestive and Overall Health
Probiotic supplements formulated by Theramedix BioSET are an effective, efficient and convenient way to derive the benefits of ‘good bacteria’.
What is a probiotic?
Probiotics are naturally occurring micro-organisms, often referred to as “good bacteria,” that work within the body to promote healthy digestion, support the immune system (more than 70% of which is in the gut), and contribute to overall health. Humans need probiotics to help break down nutrients for digestion and to decompose waste for elimination.
Why probiotic supplements?
Probiotics are naturally present in a variety of fermented foods (yogurt, sauerkraut, Korean kimchi, miso, kefir, green pickles, and tempeh for example). However, probiotic supplements offer a more convenient and efficient way of deriving the related health benefits.
Poor diet, emotional stress, antibiotics or other drugs, and environmental influences can all shift our natural populations in favor of the bad bacteria. Probiotic supplements can help shift the balance back.
Probiotics work for Men
Men are susceptible to yeast and urinary tract infections (UTIs); older men are particularly susceptible to UTIs due to prostate issues. Probiotics may offer similar benefits for men in this regard as they do for women by creating a slighting acidic pH level that discourages the growth of yeast and UTI-causing bacteria. There also is evidence to suggest that probiotics can lower cholesterol levels in the blood, which may help reduce the risk of heart disease—a leading cause of death among men worldwide.
Probiotics are for Women
Probiotics have benefits for women because of their contribution to vaginal and urinary tract health. The probiotics commonly found in women’s urogenital system help keep the pH level slightly acidic—an environment where yeast and certain harmful bacteria have difficulty thriving. Women are more susceptible to developing constipation and IBS, and both conditions have been found to respond to the use of probiotics.
Probiotics have benefits for Kids too!
Helping build immunity is one reason probiotics are vital for kids. Research shows a link between a healthy gastrointestinal tract and a strong immune system. Evidence suggests probiotics can play a role for kids in improving colic, eczema, and intestinal problems; when given early in the course of diarrhea, probiotics may reduce the duration.
For the Best Probiotic Supplement, look for Multiple Strains.
The best probiotic supplement contains various strains to get the benefits of their unique capabilities. Probiotic supplements formulated by Theramedix BioSET contain strains of both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Both lower the pH of their environment, creating less favorable conditions for harmful bacteria. Lactobacillus produces the lactase enzyme, which breaks down dairy, and assists in the absorption of certain vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids.
Should you take probiotic pills, tablets or capsules?
There are many forms of probiotic supplements—pills, tablets, capsules, liquids, powders and drinks for example. Theramedix BioSET probiotic supplements are capsules, which are one of the easiest and most convenient delivery systems. Our probiotic capsules are 100% vegetarian and contain no fillers, aspartame, sucrose, sorbitol, yeast, corn proteins, nuts, salt, preservatives, animal enzymes, or artificial colors or flavors.
Other Theramedix BioSET Nutritional Supplements to Aid Digestion and Overall Health
Some probiotics can do their work without any help. Others need assistance. That’s why Theramedix BioSET also manufactures a line of digestive enzymes (good bacteria that normally inhabit a health GI tract), systemic enzymes , and herbal supplements.
Our professional-blend nutritional supplements started as a line for use in holistic therapy practices. Complementary health practitioners from various methods of training—acupuncture, nutrition, nurse practitioners, integrative medical doctors, massage therapists and naturopaths for example have all successfully utilized Theramedix enzymes, probiotics, and other dietary supplements in their practices to help their clients achieve an optimal level of health.
