What are Probiotics?

In today’s world, where our diets vary and where we’re exposed to many stressors, probiotics may help support normal gut health.

How do Probiotics Work?

Probiotics are live microorganisms that have been shown to provide health benefits.

When we consume probiotics, they enter our digestive tract where trillions of other microbes live. This collection of microbes is called your gut microbiota.

The vast majority of these microbes help your body function properly, by performing a number of beneficial phycological functions such as absorbing nutrients, supporting your immune system and influencing your gut health (to name a few).

When you take a probiotic, you are introducing probiotics into your digestive tract. The probiotic can interact with your resident microbes, which may help promote beneficial microbial activities and may limit the overgrowth of the bad bacteria.

Studies show that probiotics can support digestive health, immune health and may help support protein utilization using many of the same mechanisms that our gut microbiota use.

Choosing the Right Probiotic to Support Digestive and Immune Health

BC30TM (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086) is an efficacious and safe spore-forming probiotic with research-backed health benefits. Used by product makers to create food and beverages with probiotics, functional foods and beverages that contain BC30 probiotics are widely available and make it easier than ever to fuel your entire day with the health benefits of probiotics.

When you consume foods or beverages containing BC30 probiotics, you’re adding more good bacteria to help support healthy digestion and immune health. And while many probiotic strains can’t survive in foods and beverages, BC30 has natural protection that allows it to sleep through the transit to your gut, where it wakes up and gets to work to promote beneficial bacteria to help support your digestive health, immune health and protein absorption.

Be proactive about maintaining your gut health and supporting your immune system by choosing foods and beverages that contain BC30.
