Probiotics are live microorganisms that are either the same as or similar to those found in the human body.
Although we tend to think of bacteria as harmful “germs,” many bacteria actually help the body function properly. Probiotics aide a variety of gastrointestinal issues such as immune support. Probiotics are also used for preventing tooth decay and other oral health problems.
The word probiotic mean “for life”. Probiotics or the “good bacteria” comprise approximately four (4) pounds of our body weight. The human digestive system contains approximately 3.3 million genes from more than 1000 species about 150 times the 20-25,000 genes in the human genome. The “good bacteria cells” also out number outnumber human cells 10:1.
The primary function of the “good bacteria” are:
- Immune Support
- Digestive Support
- Vitamin production
The BioTE probiotic contains two(2) strains of Lactobacillus and one(1) strain of Bidobacterium.
The BioTE probiotic also delivers the “good bacteria” via an innovative capsule technology that protects the “good bacteria” form being destroyed by harsh stomach acids.
This innovative capsule technology also delivers more viable/live “good bacteria” to the intestines where they perform their magic.
