Supports a Healthy Gut Microbiota in Seniors
BY ADDING THIS PRODUCT TO YOUR CART, YOU AGREE TO OUR HEAT SENSITIVE PRODUCT POLICY.
This high-CFU, hypoallergenic blend of 10 certified probiotic species is formulated for individuals over the age of 60 years to maintain a healthy, balanced, and diverse gastrointestinal microbiota. Microorganisms consistently present in the gut are termed the “core microbiota.” In adults, the core microbiota remains remarkably stable unless disrupted by environmental exposures, diet, or medications. However, aging is associated with changes in the composition and diversity of the microbiota, which have been correlated with increased frailty in elderly populations. The age-related decline in immune function along with the prevalence of chronic systemic inflammation in older populations have been linked to alterations in the gut microbiota.
Ther-Biotic® Senior Formula supplies substantial amounts of Bifidobacterium species known to decline with aging. It provides Lactobacillus species with documented supportive effects on immune function. Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species in Ther-Biotic® Senior Formula support healthy gastrointestinal barrier function. Through the process of metabolic cross-feeding, they promote normal concentrations of colonic short-chain fatty acids and maintain a low colonic luminal pH. Ther-Biotic® Senior Formula has been designed to support a healthy diverse adult gut microbiota.
Ther-Biotic® Senior Formula is recommended for older individuals wishing to maintain or restore a balanced core microbiota and support normal immune and gastrointestinal function. The probiotics are provided in capsules with InTactic® technology to protect the microorganisms from degradation by stomach acid.
As a dietary supplement take one capsule daily with food or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
