FlorAssist by Life Extension is a probiotic consisting of 15 billion colony forming bacterial units, which target the small intestine and help to combat harmful bacteria. A healthy balance of good-bad bacteria is essential for overall health and wellness.
Studies have shown that probiotics, such as FlorAssist, may be highly beneficial in digestive problems and intestinal health. In one study, it was determined that children suffering from severe diarrhea may have their illness shortened by 24-30 hours by taking probiotics.14
FlorAssist is acid resistant, and features dual-encapsulation technology, triumphing over obstacles that other probiotics face, and ensuring that the capsule reaches its target, the small intestine.
Other probiotics opt to include a single bacterial type, however studies show that it is more beneficial to take several different types of bacteria to better fight harmful bacteria. FlorAssist provides seven different bacterial types.
These powerful bacteria attach to the soft lining of the intestinal tract, and aid to sustain a healthy surface, and help to assist the digestive system.
