USANA Probiotic Makes it a Beautiful Day in the (Digestive) Neighborhood

Did you know your body is more bacteria than human? Ninety percent of the human body, in fact, is made up of symbiotic microbial flora, most of which are necessary for keeping us alive and healthy.


Lactobacillus bacteria

You could think of your body as a bunch of different bacterial communities all living in different neighborhoods — your mouth, your nose, your reproductive system.

The most crowded block of bacterial communities is in our digestive system.

It’s important that we have plenty of good bacterial residents in our digestive neighborhood to keep it from going down the proverbial toilet. If the bad bacterial element moves in and takes over, it can give us some trouble (sometimes on the literal toilet — sorry, I had to!): constipation or “the opposite problem,” bloating, gas or flatulence, cramps, etc.

Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to maintain a proper balance of good bacteria in our digestive system with a healthy diet and the help of USANA® Probiotic, which is now even better with a formula that is dairy- and sugar-free!

USANA ProUSANA Probioticbiotic uses patented strains Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG® and Bifidobacterium BB-12® because they are well-documented to survive transit through the acidic stomach environment. This is important, because the bacteria aren’t going to do you any good if they die the second you swallow them.

Because our product is in a stick pack, we are able to give you a higher effective dose with a much longer shelf life than most of the yogurt-type products out there — specifically, 12 billion colony forming units at the time of manufacture with an 18-month shelf life. Plus, if you don’t like yogurt, you don’t have to eat it with USANA Probiotic! You can take the product straight from the package or mix it with any cold food or beverage. Talk about your health, your way.

Regularly taking USANA Probiotic — along with Fibergy® Plus, which acts as a prebiotic to help us grow our own natural, beneficial bacteria—can help our digestive system work efficiently, help our immune system function properly, and help line the wall of our gut to keep it healthy.

Intestinal bacteria are sort of like the digestive Neighborhood Watch — with the good communities helping keep the peace and deal with troublemakers. And you can give them strength in numbers by sending in extra aid with USANA Probiotic.
