Uses For Probiotic-5 (dairy-free)
G.I. Health and Comfort: L. acidophilus and B. longum have been shown to promote healthy cytokine production in the colon and maintain healthy GI barrier function, in part by supporting the mucosal lining of the GI tract. Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora, support healthy yeast balance, and promote GI comfort. A study involving elderly individuals indicated that a mixture of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria maintained healthy gut ecology.*
Immune Cell Function: Studies suggest that probiotics support immune health, enhancing B cell, T cell and NK cell function. A randomized, double blind, placebocontrolled intervention study involving 479 adults suggests that B. longum and B. bifidum promotes overall health and T cell function. Another randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 25 elderly volunteers suggests that B. lactis encourages immune function by enhancing phagocytic capacity and activity.*
