Clinical GI Probiotic
Want a healthy Gastro-Intestinal (GI) tract? Add some good bacteria to your diet.
Your digestive system depends on the presence of probiotic gut flora for maximum nutrient production and absorption, and maintaining a healthy gut lining. A balanced digestive track ecology also helps to maintain proper intestinal function.*
While we are able to obtain probiotic bacteria from some of the foods we eat, research indicates that supplementation can help increase the numbers of probiotic bacteria in your intestine and subsequently support digestive health. As we get older, this is particularly important since our probiotic levels tend to diminish with age.*
Critical to your probiotic bacteria’s effectiveness is getting strains that have been shown to colonize the human gut and support certain health benefits. Each capsule of Clinical GI Probiotic™ includes nine of these strains including 5 billion CFU (colony-forming units) of Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™. This strain has been clinically evaluated for its ability to support GI regularity and reduce bloating.*
Clinical Probiotic Immune
Want a strong immune system? Consider this: Your gut is the home to an estimated 70% of your immune system. And a growing body of scientific work indicates the beneficial bacteria of your GI tract plays a pivotal role in helping your immune system function at its best.
It seems these helpful microbes also coach your immune system so their reaction is more sophisticated, measured and balanced to help you navigate the complex world we live in.
Clinical Probiotic Immune™ is a combination of L. acidophilus NCFM® (10 Billion/Veg Cap) and B. lactis Bl-04®, two clinically validated probiotic strains that help to promote a robust, balanced response to immune system challenges. Both of these acid-resistant strains in this formula are known to also support digestive health, while NCFM® may also help to support a healthy insulin response through its positive influence on the GI tract.*
Pterostilbene 50 mg & Resveratrol 250 mg
What do plants do when they get stressed? The produce polyphenols like Pterostilbene and Resveratrol. And just like these special compounds can help plants stay healthy, they can help us thrive as well. Both seem to help fight aging and support cardiovascular health. Both are powerful free radical scavengers.
Resveratrol, found in red grape skins, is well known. When researchers tried to solve the French Paradox – the French’s enviable ability to eat rich foods and still enjoy healthy hearts – they zeroed in on the Resveratrol in red wine.
Less well known, but growing in fame is Resveratrol’s cousin, Pterostilbene. Also found in grapes and other resveratrol sources like blueberries, Pterostilbene helps plants rally from stress as well.
However, unlike Resveratrol, Pterostilbene is more readily absorbed and utilized by the body. In animal studies Pterostilbene was 80% bioavailable compared to Resveratrol, which was only 20% bioavailable. Emerging research indicated Pterostilbene may support cardiovascular health.* And at the cellular level, Pterostilbene seems to help with proper cell cycle regulation and promoting a healthy response to cellular stress.*
This special formulation combining this dynamic duo provides 50 mg pTeroPure® trans-Pterostilbene, which has been clinically evaluated for its superior bioavailability, and 250 mg trans-Resveratrol in every capsule, creating a powerful, more comprehensive, free radical scavenging, anti-aging combination.*
Methyl B-12 10,000 mcg
Get the Methyl B12 supply you need with this special lozenge.
Methylcobalamin, a coenzyme form of Vitamin B12, is a critical nutrient when it comes to cardiovascular and nervous system health. Vitamin B12 works as a cofactor in the production of methionine from homocysteine, helping to maintain a healthy level of homocysteine in the bloodstream.*
Unfortunately, an estimated 15-20% of the population is deficient in this important vitamin. Many of us have a hard time absorbing it – especially as we get older.
You can absorb it passively through the mucus membranes in your mouth. If you start with a high dosage, this can contribute to a significant increase in blood serum levels of B12.
In one small trial with 10 vitamin B-12 deficient volunteers, sucking on these 10,000 mcg lozenges saw blood serum levels increase by over 400 mcg on average. Over the course of the 10-week trial, the volunteers were able to raise their blood serum levels up to normal levels.
The methylcobalamin used for this formulation has been demonstrated to be used more efficiently absorbed than cyanocobalamin in increasing levels of B-12 in the body.
