Natural Factors Senior’s Multi Probiotic provides eight bifidobacteria and lactobacilli species for targeted support of both the small and large intestines. This senior-specific formula helps replenish these bacteria species, which decline with age. Probiotics help relieve constipation, gas, and bloating, and combat age-related decline in immune system function.
- Supports digestive health
- Combats age-related decline in immune system function
- Relieves digestive discomfort associated with antibiotic use
- Reduces inflammation
- Strengthens natural immunity
Unfortunately, the populations of these good bacteria, such as B. breve, decline rapidly as we age, leaving us vulnerable to infection by pathogenic organisms. Maintaining the diversity of gut microflora through regular consumption of Senior’s Multi Probiotic may reduce the production of pro-inflammatory substances which can, in turn, help in the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and food intolerances. Beneficial gut bacteria also support genito-urinary health, playing a role in the prevention and management of yeast overgrowth and urinary tract infections.
This comprehensive formula includes L. rhamnosus, clinically shown to enhance immune system activity in the elderly, along with L. acidophilus, which can significantly decrease gastrointestinal side effects, as well as yeast infections associated with antibiotic use.
