Some frequently asked questions about Probiotica P3
Q What are probiotic supplements?
A The word “probiotic” literally means “for life”; but the term usually refers to supplements that contain living, beneficial bacteria. Billions of these friendly bacteria from more than 400 different species occur naturally in a healthy digestive system, with most living in the intestines, where they are sometimes called “intestinal flora”. These bacteria support general wellbeing in several ways, such as assisting digestion and helping to maintain immunity. However, they can be very sensitive to changes in their environment, and some lifestyle factors (see below) can significantly reduce their numbers. Supplementing with a concentrated probiotic can help customers whose natural levels of intestinal flora are low to replenish their natural levels.
Q What can lower the body's natural levels of probiotics?
A Many lifestyle factors can change the environmental conditions inside the digestive system and make it less welcoming for friendly bacteria.
Some of these include:
- Antibiotic use (antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria)
- Certain medications, e.g. steroids or the Oral Contraceptive Pill
- Frequent alcohol consumption
- Stress or aging
- Poor diet or eating disorders
- Digestive problems such as diarrhoea and constipation
- Pollution, chemical additives and pesticides
Q How can beneficial bacteria help to maintain health and wellbeing?
A Friendly bacteria can help to maintain general health and wellbeing in many ways. They support healthy liver function, which in turn helps the body to rid itself of toxins. They assist with the digestive process, aiding the body in absorbing a full range of nutrients, supporting regular elimination and actually producing some of the critical B vitamins that the body requires. Some intestinal flora can also help to maintain healthy immunity: both by using up resources that harmful bacteria, yeasts and fungi would need to flourish, and by producing substances that actively deter these micro-organisms.
Q Why doesn’t Nutra-Life Probiotica P3 need refrigerating?
A Nutra-Life Probiotica P3 is guaranteed to be stable for 3 years at room temperature and throughout the normal use of the product. This is because Nutra-Life Probiotica P3 friendly bacteria have undergone a special proprietary process and extensive testing to ensure they are stable out of the refrigerator, enabling them to confer their unique digestive and immune health benefits.
Q What happens to probiotic bacteria that are refrigerated?
A Refrigeration causes moisture and condensation to form. This can reduce the viability of probiotic bacteria, causing them to degrade and become ineffective.
Q Why are acid-resistant probiotic strains beneficial?
A The stomach is a harshly acidic environment that probiotic bacteria must pass through in order to get to the site of action in the gut. Many probiotic strains cannot survive this environment, so they are less able to contribute their health benefits in the body. Nutra-Life Probiotica P3 uses a special proprietary process that ensures the friendly bacteria can reach the intestinal tract where they are the most beneficial.
Q How long should I continue to take Nutra-Life Probiotica P3?
A Individuals may start to experience intestinal benefits within a few days of taking Nutra-Life Probiotica P3. However, most people need 4-6 weeks of continuous use for longer-term benefits. Individuals taking Nutra-Life Probiotica P3 due to antibiotic use should start using the product when they begin antibiotic treatment, and continue for a minimum of one month after the treatment course ends.
