Heres what Ethical Nutrients say about Have you had your Inner Health Plus today?
Inner Health and Inner Health Plus are probiotic supplements that contain medical strength acidophilus and bifidobacterium to therapeutically raise the levels of good bacteria in your digestive system. These probiotic supplements are best taken every day to help maintain your digestive function and support optimal immune system function.
Beauty is on the inside
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that we need for good health and vitality. Probiotics beneficially affect humans by improving the balance of flora in the digestive system. The word probiotic actually means "for life": pro + bios = "for life."
There are trillions of bacteria within your digestive system that play a vital role in keeping you healthy. This colony of bacteria contains both "good" and "bad" bacteria, though obviously you need more "good" bacteria than "bad" to keep you healthy! Maintaining optimal levels of good bacteria by taking a probiotic supplement like Inner Health or Inner Health Plus provides a variety of benefits for your health, such as;
* Improving your digestion and helping maintain the health of your digestive system.
* Preventing the overgrowth of bad bacteria.
* Regulating your immune function.
The good, bad and the ugly
An imbalance of digestive bacteria can create many gastrointestinal symptoms, such as bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea or constipation. The balance of flora also dictates the health of your immune system, as 80% of your immune system lives in, and around, the digestive tract. An imbalance in digestive bacteria levels can therefore leave you more susceptible to infections.
The yoghurt myth
It is important that you only use good quality supplements that provide the adequate levels of the right bacteria. Probiotics are very temperature sensitive and do not survive long outside of the digestive system. A main difference between probiotics found in Inner Health and Inner Health Plus (as opposed to those in yoghurt), is that Inner Health probiotics lie dormant within the capsule until taken.
In yoghurt, the probiotic bacteria are not dormant and may begin to die off from the time of manufacture. Therefore, there may be no guarantee that there are sufficient "good" bacteria in every dose.
Inner Health undergoes thorough quality assurance testing to ensure that, when swallowed, the bacteria come alive and start to adhere to and repopulate your digestive tract. This guarantees that you get good quality probiotics, at good doses.
In fact, you would have to eat 22 tubs of yoghurt to get the same amount of beneficial good bacteria that is in just one capsule of Inner Health Plus!
A therapeutic dose of good bacteria
Another issue with relying on food sources of good bacteria is that the serve of probiotics contained within these foods is not necessarily enough to give you the health benefits you want. You need to ensure you are taking a scientifically validated dose of good bacteria, proven to beneficially affect health. Each capsule of Inner Health Plus contains a proven dose of 25 billion good bacteria – 12.5 billion Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM organisms and 12.5 billion Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07.
Which strain of bacteria is in your probiotic supplement?
The type of bacteria you take is also important – not all strains of probiotics provide health benefits. Inner Health and Inner Health Plus, however, contain proven strains of good bacteria.
Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM is one of the most comprehensively studied beneficial probiotics available. Health World has exclusive use of this probiotic strain, so no other product will include this beneficial probiotic. This strain is resistant to stomach acid and bile and has been shown to establish permanent probiotic colonies within the gut. Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM has been shown to assist in;
* Maintenance and restoration of healthy microflora in the intestine.
* Support of healthy digestive function following the use of medications.
* Maintenance of general wellbeing and healthy digestive function.
Inner Health Plus also contains Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07, a specially produced strain of bifidobacterium, which is also resistant to stomach acid and bile and can repopulate the gut. It has also been shown to beneficially affect immune function through;
* Restoring balance where there is immune dysregulation.
* Assisting in the maintenance of healthy immune responses.
* Supporting immunity, thereby, reducing incidence of infections.
Supplementing with a good quality, high-strength probiotic like Inner Health or Inner Health Plus makes sense! These natural probiotic supplements can help maintain healthy bacterial flora and promote health, so make sure you’ve had your Inner Health or Inner Health Plus today!
