Probiotics are microorganisms that provide benefits to their host. Humans rely on microorganisms such as probiotics to keep our body healthy and functioning properly, but diet and other factors can deplete our healthy bacteria.
Probiotics for Overall Gut Health
Research strongly supports the benefits of probiotics for your digestive system. It can help with issues like diarrhea, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and H. pylori--which is the cause of ulcers.1
Immune System Protection
While we think of our digestive system mainly for its role in processing food and getting us the nutrients we need, it’s actually one of the most active systems in our body. It plays a big role in our overall immune health, among other things. Probiotics stimulate the immune response in the body.2
Probiotics have also been shown to have an impact on the storage and expenditure of energy from the food we consume. Improving the microbiome and increasing the efficiency of nutrient absorption plays a key role in weight loss as well.3
Surviving the Stomach: The Probiotic Journey
Since probiotics have to make it through to the stomach to be effective, the potency of a probiotic product depends on its survival in a harsh, acidic environment. Physician’s Choice DRcaps are acid-resistant, delayed-release pills that buys time for the probiotic organisms to reach the intestines.
Additionally, our probiotics are packaged in patented, shelf-stable bottles, which are designed to help ensure that the probiotics are protected from sunlight and oxygen, which greatly increases their shelf life.
