When we think about bacteria, we automatically think about the bad stuff. The bacteria in hospitals, on playgrounds, on a supermarket trolley. They have a reputation for causing disease, so the idea of tossing down a few billion a day for your health might seem, literally, hard to swallow. It’s not often that bacteria are seen in a positive light. We often forget about the good bacteria and the importance of a probiotic. There are so many benefits to taking a daily probiotic for your gut health, and it goes far beyond just improving digestion. There are also symptoms you might not even realise that are associated with gut health. Taking care of your gut goes hand in hand with your overall health.
Wait, probiotics? What exactly are they?
Self-dosing with bacteria isn’t as bizarre as it might seem. In a nutshell, our gut is home to an estimated 100 trillion microorganisms; they are the good bacteria that live in our colon, large intestine and other parts of our digestive system. Unfortunately, many of us are missing the good bacteria that we need, letting the bad run wild and wreaking havoc. When the bad outnumber the good, that is when chronic health conditions begin to arise. Ok great, so I’ll get some of these little critters on my way home, and all will be ok in the world.
Hold your horses; not all probiotics are created equal!
Have you walked down the supermarket aisle only to get confused between so many different brands promising the world? There is no question if we need them or not, but it is important to understand that not all probiotics are created equal. We can get probiotics from food (yoghurt or fermented veggies, for example). But it is really hard to maintain a consistent intake to get the probiotic strains that you need. The fastest, easiest and most reliable way to ensure you are getting a high-quality probiotic is to take a daily supplement. Unfortunately, you can’t always trust the products that are sold on the supermarket shelf to provide what you need. It is estimated that 90% of the good living bacteria that you need in a probiotic is dead before you even get your hands on it. Even if you do get a high dose, it probably won’t survive the harsh acidic environment of your tummy. That is why New Image™ Alpha Lipid™ Lifeline™ is with its advanced Alpha Lipid coating is so effective. There are many factors that contribute to a great quality probiotic, but there’s no point in having a great product if it is going to be damaged during the digestive process. New Image™ International has worked hard to source quality colostrum and created leading manufacturing techniques that minimally process it, so our colostrum products retain more than 90% of the active immunoglobulins and probiotics. Then we’ve gone one, vital step further.
To protect the important bioactive components of our probiotics in colostrum through the harsh digestive process, we’ve created a special patented liposomal delivery system; you know this as the ‘Alpha Lipid™’ difference. But WHY do we need them? There is a Mary Poppins bag full of reasons why we will benefit from a daily probiotic. The positive effects of adding this to your daily routine include, but are not limited to:
• Improved digestion, leaky gut, IBS, bloating etc
• Improved nutrient absorption
• Clearer skin
• Improved mood and mental health
• Weight loss, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes
• Balanced hormones
• Improved immunity
• More energy and less brain fog
Don’t neglect your gut! When you’re trying to live a healthier life, it’s easy to overlook these little critters that help your gut. You will see positive effects when you take Alpha Lipid™ Lifeline™, from fighting off illness, clearer skin, less digestive issues and your energy will skyrocket! Who doesn’t want more energy?
