If you're sometimes prone to gas or irregularity or other gastro-intestinal (GI) symptoms, or are worried you may not be reaping the full benefits from your meals because they're not always being fully digested, you could likely benefit from a probiotic supplement. But it's easy to become overwhelmed by the range of choices. If you don't have any major issues, and you're not just coming off of probiotics, for example, this is an appropriate choice for providing daily support for GI health and for potentially helping the immune system by increasing the nutrients made available to it, and it may even help you digest lactose / dairy products better, if you're just mildly intolerant. It features a powerful blend of two commonly used, well-studied strains of beneficial bacteria in a non-dairy powder base, plus a type of fiber called FOS (fructooligosaccharides), to nurture them as they repopulate the intestines with a healthier balance of microflora.
