The USANA Probiotic is a sugar-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free powder supplement.
It contains live microorganisms intended to maintain or improve the “good” bacteria (normal microflora) in the body.
There are many probiotic supplements available on the market today.
But, not all probiotic sources are equal.
USANA Probiotic can be an excellent choice for two key reasons:
- strains and
- amounts used
Each stick pack of USANA Probiotic Canada Supplement contains a unique 50/50 mixture of two of the most studied probiotic bacteria strains:
- Bifidobacterium BB-12® / Bifidobacterium BB-12MD 6 billion CFU
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG® / Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGGMD 6 billion CFU
D-Mannitol, Inulin, Silicon Dioxide.
These bacteria are similar to the Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus that are part of a natural gut flora found in the colon.
For instance, to get results it’s essential these bacteria reach the intestines alive.
USANA Probiotic is so effective, especially because the bacteria survive transit through the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach to colonize the intestines.
The inulin fiber in the formula boosts the strength of the strains.
In other words, Inulin acts as a prebiotic, which feeds your natural beneficial bacteria and may further support the establishment of Bifidobacterium in the intestine.
What are the benefits of USANA Probiotic?
By taking one stick pack of USANA Probiotic every other day you can benefit for:
- Good digestion and nutrient absorption
- Digestive comfort and regularity
- Healthy immunity
To provide probiotic effects throughout the gastrointestinal tract, generally, at least one billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of total active bacteria are needed daily.
Most of the yogurts or other foods people rely on, to get their beneficial bacteria, contain an unspecified or unverified number of viable bacteria.
So, if you’re relying on yogurts to replenish your beneficial bacteria, it certainly won’t hurt your health.
But it might not really be helping you either.
In addition, stability can be a challenge with some strains of bacteria because at room temperature their life is short.
However, USANA Probiotic is guaranteed to contain 12 billion CFU of active bacteria.
Plus, USANA’s blend is designed to remain stable at room temperature (25° C) for 18 months.
And, even months after manufacture, USANA’s 12 billion CFU-level is still stable.
This stability has been verified in independent and in-house tests.
After that, you can preserve your probiotics even longer by storing them in the refrigerator.
Good digestion and nutrient absorption
Obviously, for good digestive health, it’s important to make sure you get a real, reliable dose of beneficial bacteria.
The bacteria help your digestive process function properly.
Digestion is a multi-step process.
It begins in your mouth and ends when wastes are eliminated.
The digestive system is responsible for breaking down and absorbing all the nutrients from the food and supplements you consume.
Your gastrointestinal system is hosting trillions of bacteria – also known as microflora.
Bacteria serve many purposes in the digestion and metabolism process, including:
- Supporting the activity of enzymes that break down fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals into useable forms.
- Producing some nutrients – bacteria in the gut make vitamin K, biotin, and more.
- Helping to remove toxins and wastes from the body through the normal passage of stool through the colon.
There are thousands of different species of bacteria in your digestive tract.
Bacteria can be both beneficial or potentially harmful.
The key is maintaining the right balance of the right bacteria for you.
Digestive comfort and regularity
A number of things can upset the stability of your intestinal environment:
- Occasional stress
- Poor diet and hydration
- Lack of rest or changes in sleep patterns
- Travel and exposure to new microbes
The normal aging process also impacts the stability of your gut microbiome.
For instance, occasional mild gas, constipation, bloating, and diarrhea can all be embarrassing and uncomfortable.
USANA Probiotic can help you maintain digestive health and comfort.
Research suggests that probiotics, including Bifidobacterium BB-12 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG, may play a role in sustaining healthy immune function.
More immune cells are found in the gut than in any other region of the body.
This makes sense because a healthy gastrointestinal tract is a central line of immune defense.
It serves as a protective barrier.
USANA Probiotic supports immunity through strength in numbers.
Your natural bacteria line the wall of your gastrointestinal tract to help support a strong barrier and maintain normal function.
Therefore, with USANA Probiotic, you deliver more friendly bacteria to your gut. This will be helping reinforce stronger protection.
Above all, there’ll be even more good bacteria to fill attachment sites on the intestinal wall.
So, your gut barrier will be fortified, helping you to stay healthy.
What does the USANA Probiotic supplement do for you?
USANA probiotic will help replenish beneficial bacteria to help keep you healthy.
It supports harmony in your gastrointestinal tract. It can help you to establish a better microbial balance with a boost of friendly bacteria.
Therefore, USANA Probiotic helps keep things moving and it has benefits for bowel regularity.
It aids consistent waste elimination from the body through the regular passing of stool and normalization of stool consistency.
Occasional stress – from travel, hectic schedules, or other lifestyle disruptions – can also cause minor gastrointestinal upsets.
Supporting a healthy gut with USANA Probiotic can also help you stay well, even when you’re under pressure or traveling.
What is the difference between USANA Probiotic and
Other Probiotic Supplements:
USANA Probiotic is:
- Pharmaceutical Quality
It’s a powder supplement that contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG® and Bifidobacterium BB-12®, two strains of specific probiotic bacteria shown to survive the harsh acidic environment of the stomach.
USANA Probiotic is dairy-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free.
In addition, USANA’s blend is designed to ensure that the bacteria will be stable at room temperature (25° C) for 18 months.
And, even longer by storing them in the refrigerator.
To keep everything working smoothly you should add USANA probiotic and other USANA Optimizers as your supplements to support a healthy balance.
Some studies have suggested that probiotics that use multiple species have been shown to be more effective than those with only one strain.
These two strains have been well documented to completely ensure the journey as they travel through the harsh acids in the stomach en-route to the intestines.
You should keep out of the reach of children.
If you are pregnant, nursing, taking a prescription drug, or have a medical condition consult a physician.
In addition, if you have nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, or severe abdominal pain, consult a physician before use.
Also, if symptoms of digestive upset (e.g., diarrhea) occur, worsen, or persist beyond 3 days, discontinue use and consult a physician.
