We’ve heard of probiotics…but what are they? And what do they do?
First, let’s get to know our bodies a little bit better…
370 trillion biotics live in or on just about every part of our bodies; they live on the skin, inside our gut, our nose, and just about everywhere else. This large network of biotics or microbes is called our microbiome.
The microbiome is meant to live in harmony with us; however, if the microbiome is unbalanced, or wiped out by antibiotics, this could result in health complications. Clearly, we should protect our microbiome at all costs.
But how do we do that?
Probiotics are best described as the body’s brave knights who destroy the evil bacteria and defend the microbiome – they are good bacteria that fight the bad. They can also prevent bloating and gas, maximize nutrient absorption, and so much more!
So, how do we access probiotics?
Probiotics can be found in a wide variety of foods: yogurt, pickles, cheese, sauerkraut, and more. However, to provide the body with the required number of probiotics, we would have to consume these foods in very large quantities.
So, what is the solution?
How does P3 compare to other probiotic-filled foods? Well, we would need to eat TEN cups of yogurt to get the same number of probiotics found in one P3 packet! TEN! I don’t know about you, but I would rather eat a small, delicious, peach-flavored probiotic dose instead of ten cups of yogurt.
Three probiotic strains from Copenhagen, Denmark, comprise P3: Bifidobacterium animals 12, Lactobacillus acidophilus 5, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus PB01. These strains have been clinically proven to improve the microbiome’s health and provide total digestive balance.
P3 can also relieve stomach cramps, soften stool, eliminate constipation, protect the body from infection, maximize nutrient absorption, and more!
Whether you choose P3 as your probiotics source or not, probiotics are critical to our body’s overall health! And with winter on its way, it’s more important than ever to make sure we are safeguarding against bad bacteria! Let’s show our bodies some love by fueling them with the protective probiotics we all need!
