Not All Bacteria is Bad

Not All Bacteria is Bad

Today, bacteria have become synonymous with illness and something we need to kill off. While that may be true for some pathogenic bacteria, germs, or viruses, it’s not the case with probiotics. According to the World Health Organization, probiotics are live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.

Our microbiomes are full of bacteria that are rich in diversity, and through research, we know that they play key roles in functions such as improving motility, synthesizing key compounds like B-vitamins and short chain fatty acids, supporting a good balance of gut flora, and supporting our immunity.[1] In fact, digestion, your gut bacteria and the integrity of your gut lining strongly affect your overall health. Good digestive health is essential for many things, including nutrient absorption[2], immune function[3], detoxification[4] and chemical and hormone production.[5]

Market research shows a growing demand for shelf stable probiotics[6], clinical proof, doctor recommendations[7] and reassurances that products being purchased are worth the expense.[8] Renew Life® is meeting these demands with a brand-new line up of shelf stable probiotics. They use world class strains backed by clinical research that are quality, purity and potency guaranteed through expiration and have a 60-day money-back guarantee.

Here are some of the benefits of the Renew Life® line up pf probiotics.
