Probiotics are defined by the World Health Organization as live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host. Probiotics are used around the world to help support healthy digestion, provide a natural defense, and maintain optimal health and wellness. Attune wellness bars contain three different specially formulated LAFTI® probiotic strains that are part of the natural flora in our digestive systems. Attune’s probiotics are clinically proven to help promote health and wellness, balance the digestive system and support a strong immune system 1, 2, 3
Not all probiotics are the same, and all live active cultures aren't probiotics. Probiotics must be alive and they should be able to reach the intestine alive so they can have an effect. The required amount of probiotics must be present at the time you eat the product—not just when the product was made. Attune is formulated to ensure each bar contains an effective number of probiotics when purchased and Attune probiotics are proven to survive in the digestive tract where they can provide the maximum health benefits.
Each Attune bar contains more than 10 billion probiotics, an amount shown to provide optimal results. Attune wellness bars also include the prebiotic inulin, a natural dietary fiber that supports healthy digestive function and works in harmony with probiotics.
