The beneficial health effects of Probi’s bacteria have been demonstrated in several medical studies. These effects include relief of gastrointestinal disorders, a strengthened immune system and better recovery after a workout.
How probiotics work during digestion and in relation to gastrointestinal disorders
Probiotics contribute to better digestion and relieve the symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders. Probi’s bacterial strains make it more difficult for harmful bacteria to establish themselves in the intestines. Probiotics also prevent harmful bacteria from penetrating the intestinal walls and transferring to other areas of the body. This entails that bacteria have a beneficial effect on intestinal flora, reducing the risk of intestinal infection. Accordingly, probiotics can relieve the symptoms of common intestinal health problems, including IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). These bacterial strains are available in such products as ProViva Fruit drinks and ProViva Shots.
How probiotics and the immune system work
The well-being of the stomach has a major impact on the well-being of the entire body. About 70% of the immune system is located in the stomach. Accordingly, regular consumption of probiotics can contribute to maintaining a healthy immune system. Probi has identified specific bacterial strains that strengthen and cooperate with intestinal immune cells, resulting in beneficial health effects throughout the body. Clinical studies have shown that Probi’s bacteria strains shorten cold periods and reduce cold symptoms. These bacterial strains are available in the product Bravo Friscus.
Probiotics and cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity
Probiotics can contribute to reducing the risk of a condition known as the metabolic syndrome, which includes cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Probi’s bacterial strains can reduce such inflammation parameters as fibrinogens and IL-6. Mealtime studies also show that the bacteria strains can reduce insulin levels.
Probiotics, stress and recovery
Probiotics can restore intestinal imbalances and help the body recover after physical exertion, and intake of one of Probi’s bacterial strains together with antioxidants has, in a clinical study, increased the total amount of antioxidative capacity in the blood. Nutrient uptake can also improve, which amongst others has been specifically documented for iron. The bacterial strain is included in such products as Probi Mage®, ProViva and ProViva Active.
