While there's been lots of media buzz about probiotics as of late, many people are still quite not sure what they are. The word "probiotic" is derived from the Greek word pro meaning "promoting" and biotic meaning "life." Simply put, probiotics are beneficial bacteria that are essential for many vital body functions, including healthy digestion. But not all probiotics are alike.
It's all about the strain.
When it comes to probiotics, it’s the strain that is linked with specified health benefits. That’s because different strains can have different health benefits. A probiotic with multiple strains is not necessarily better than a probiotic with a single strain. MetaBiotic contains a celebrated bacteria strain, known as Bio-Active 12, which when included as part of your daily wellness routine, helps maintain a balanced and healthy immune system*. Bio-Active 12 fortifies your digestive system with healthy bacteria and helps maintain digestive balance*.
