Probiotics are helpful bacteria that support digestion and healthy immune function and produce active forms of B-vitamins. The most common types are lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. Research shows that aging, stress, poor diet, alcohol, and many other frequently-encountered substances can deplete the probiotic cultures that inhabit the human gut.*
Without interference the healthy human gut is naturally home to about 100 trillion living probiotic cultures. Though they do repopulate, it happens very slowly over time. At 30 billion cultures per day, it would take over 9 years for those organisms to naturally repopulate to optimum numbers.
PureBiotics™ Maxima is for those with more severe probiotic depletion, and combines 15 probiotic strains (100 billion active cultures per capsule at date of expiration). Its cultures are divided evenly between bifido and lacto strains. Signs of such depletion can include gas, bloating, and other occasional discomforts associated with poor digestion. A robust probiotic population has been shown to help support a healthy immune system.*
