Probiotic 20 Plus is a synbiotic formula containing prebiotics, enzymes, and ten different probiotic strains to support a healthy digestive system. Probiotics are live microorganisms which provide health benefits to the host when consumed. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth and activity of bacteria in the colon that can improve the host health.
Probiotics are living microorganisms that support a healthy intestinal tract and immune system. A strong immune system is directly related to strong gut health, because the gut is our first line of defense against pathogens. Probiotics, prebiotics (carbohydrates that cannot be digested by the human body; food for probiotics), and enzymes each play key roles in supporting a healthy digestive system. Most probiotics produce certain compounds in the gut like lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, toxic amines, and ammonia that lower intestinal pH, thus creating a non-favorable environment for harmful invasive bacteria to survive. Some probiotics are also known to produce enzymes and B vitamins, which may promote a healthy digestive system. Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that stimulate the growth and activity of probiotic bacteria in the colon which can improve the host’s health. Supplemental enzymes further enhance nutrient absorption and help break down macronutrients.
