Good health starts in the gut
Digestion may be one of the most important functions of the body, affecting
nutrient absorption, immune system function and much more. Yet, according to
the American College of Gastroenterology, 95 million Americans suffer from
digestive problems. This can include everything from heartburn and irregularity
to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
The intestinal tract is home to nearly 100 trillion microorganisms (called
intestinal flora). Some of these are “unfriendly” bacteria, while the majority
are beneficial bacteria called probiotics. Probiotics support good health by
limiting the growth of harmful bacteria, promoting good digestion and increasing
resistance to infection. A healthy gut maintains a balance of these good and
The balance of bacteria in the intestinal tract can be disrupted by many aspects
of our day-to-day lives, including:
- Processed foods
- Diets low in fiber and high in sugar
- Over-toxic environments
- Hormonal changes
This imbalance can leave the intestinal tract vulnerable to “bad” bacteria and
toxins. Short term, this disruption can mean heartburn, indigestion, bloating,
food allergies, irregularity and diarrhea. Long term, it can lead to serious
conditions, including chronic infections, irritable bowel syndrome, GERD and
inflammatory bowel disease.

Unique delivery, maximum results
Probiotics are fragile organisms that must overcome several obstacles before
making it to the intestines where they can begin their good work. First they
must withstand the exposure to light, heat and moisture on the shelf. Then, they
face their most difficult obstacle: they must make it through the powerful digestive
acids in the stomach. To ensure that living probiotics reach their destination
and get to work, FloraVita utilizes two key innovations:
- Dry-preservation technology – Vigorous, energetic and robust probiotics
are preserved through a dry-preservation technology that helps maintain low-moisture
for a longer shelf life. No refrigeration required!

the probiotics from harsh digestive acids, ensuring they get where they need
