Don't Forget Prebiotics to Support a Healthy Microbiome!
Submitted by LifeExtension®

Probiotic bacteria help promote a healthy digestive environment, but how do you promote a healthy environment for beneficial probiotics? Each FLORASSIST® Prebiotic tablet contains a scientificallyvalidated dose of PreticX™ prebiotic fiber, which contains 70% xylooligosaccharides to optimize the growth potential of the beneficial bifidobacteria.

If you are taking a probiotic supplement, a prebiotic can help! Prebiotics promote a healthy environment for beneficial bifidobacteria. This unique prebiotic fiber is more effective in small doses, as small dose prebiotic fibers reduce the chances of gastrointestinal upset. FLORASSIST Prebiotic also supports the intestine, colon cells, and immune health—all in a convenient chewable with a delicious, natural strawberry flavor.

Bifidobacteria metabolize important types of dietary carbohydrates. They also support your immune system response, provide essential fuel to cells of the digestive tract, and more. Bifidobacteria occurs naturally in the human gastrointestinal tract. In fact, they flourish in young people, but drastically decrease in number as we age. This may be due to complex individual factors, such as a person's physiology, immune system, and lifestyle.

So why are these health-promoting bacteria so important? Bifidobacteria metabolize the exact dietary carbohydrates that we are unable to digest. They have also been shown to directly and indirectly promote health in a variety of other ways, such as providing critical fuel to the cells that line the colon, as well as modulating certain components of the immune system.

One popular way to address the shortage of "good" bacteria is to supplement with a probiotic. This can be helpful, but it is also important to make sure that these probiotics have an adequate prebiotic food source. But, "overdoing" the prebiotics can be too much of a good thing and not all prebiotics are the same! Most commercial prebiotics require large doses to provide the optimal conditions for GI colonization. Unfortunately, this can lead to unpleasant side effects like bloating, flatulence, and general GI discomfort. FLORASSIST® Prebiotic is formulated with a scientificallyvalidated dose of PreticX™ prebiotic fiber, which contains 70% xylooligosaccharides.

The xylooligosaccharides found in FLORASSIST® Prebiotic chewable tablets are ideal prebiotics because they are capable of optimizing the growth potential of gut bifidobacteria and can do so in relatively low doses. The less actual prebiotic fiber you have to take, the less chance of gastrointestinal upset. This highly purified prebiotic derived from non- GMO corn cob is a great solution no matter what stage of life you are in!
