Support for a healthy digestive system
- Shelf-stable, high potency
- Balanced multi-strain formula
- Increased absorption of dietary minerals
- Improved lactose digestion3
- Non-dairy and vegetarian
- Replacement of helpful bacteria killed by antibiotics
There are hundreds of species of microorganisms living naturally in the human gastrointestinal tract. They function efficiently to break down the food we eat into absorbable nutrients. Our microorganisms improve digestion and nutrient absorption as well as synthesize vitamins and breakdown harmful substances. With age the proportion of healthy bacteria declines.
Other factors contribute to the decline of healthy bacteria, such as antibiotics, corticosteroids, birth control pills, occasional digestive disorders, and antibiotic residues in meats and poultry.1Supplementing with probiotics helps maintain healthy intestinal flora. This, in turn, supports whole-body metabolism, helps maintain energy balance, and counteracts low-grade inflammation.2
This improved formula contains multiple strains of “friendly bacteria.” It guards against organisms that cause disease by creating an environment in which “bad” bacteria cannot live and reproduce. By competing for food and space, large populations of friendly bacteria leave limited resources for “bad” bacteria like hemolytic E. coli to live on. Probiotics also facilitate the removal of heavy metals and other harmful substances ingested in our food.
One of the strains in this formula, Lactobacillus acidophilus (L. acidophilus), which is the most common probiotic, also produces lactase, the enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactose) into simple sugars.
Ray & Terry recommend probiotic supplementation to support healthy digestive tract function. These helpful bacteria can alleviate occasional gas, bloating or constipation, and even improve bad breath. Numerous studies indicate that probiotics support oral health.4
Probiotics also assist in maintenance of normal cholesterol levels.5,6
Vegetable cellulose, maltodextrin and medium chain triglycerides.
1 capsule taken 1 to 2 times daily preferably with meals or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Ray & Terry’s Advanced Probiotic contains 120 vegetarian softgels per bottle.
Ray & Terry’s Advanced Probiotic is a non-dairy formula and contains no animal products. It is an all-natural way to support a healthy digestive tract. Vitamin C can improve the survival and multiplication of bacteria such as Lactobacillus. If you are taking a Vitamin C supplement, we recommend taking it at the same time as Advanced Probiotic.
