Probiotics 101

Probiotics—good for life! Probiotics products are trusted by millions of people around the world to help support healthy digestion, provide a natural defense, and maintain optimal health and wellness.

The World Health Organization (WHO) officially defines probiotics as live microorganisms, which when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.

The probiotics story begins with intestinal bacteria, which are a community of good and bad bacteria that live in the digestive system. We all have naturally occurring bacterial communities in our digestive systems. They help:
  • Protect the body from harmful bacteria.
  • Exercise the immune system to ensure it is ready to react to harmful bacteria.
  • Strengthen the intestinal wall so it acts as a defensive barrier.
  • Digest fiber in the diet, so we can absorb the nutrients from the foods we eat.

These digestive bacteria are essential to overall well-being. Probiotic products act as a helper to these friendly bacteria, and that help can keep the digestive system functioning well. As an additional resource on probiotics, read this informative guide published by the American Gastroenterological Association. 
 
Prebiotics- what are they?
A prebiotic is a form of fiber that remains undigested in the small intestine and acts as food for the naturally-occurring friendly bacteria in your digestive system. Attune is formulated with the prebiotic inulin, which is a natural dietary fiber that supports healthy digestive function and works in harmony with our probiotic products.
