Dairy- and sugar-free probiotic food supplement for digestive and immune health*
USANA Probiotic is a blend of probiotic bacteria that has been shown to support healthy digestion and sound immune function.* The bacterial strains were carefully selected to survive the harsh environment of the stomach to ensure effective colonization of the GI tract. USANA Probiotic is dairy free, sugar free, and is also guaranteed to remain effective for at least 18 months when stored at room temperature. Few probiotic products can make these claims. And it is so convenient—you can easily add a stick pack to your favorite Nutrimeal™ or Fibergy® Plus. Take charge of your digestive health with USANA Probiotic.*

THE BENEFITS OF USANA® PROBIOTIC
There are trillions of bacteria living in or on your body, and many of them play a role in keeping you healthy. Your gut alone is host to hundreds of species of both beneficial and potentially harmful bacteria, which are part of the intestinal flora. To maintain everyday intestinal health, it’s important that the beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria are in proper balance. Age, stress, illness, antibiotics and/or certain medicines, poor diet and hydration, lack of rest, and harmful environmental conditions may impact the balance that is needed to support the normal intestinal flora. An imbalance can lead to digestive concerns that may not only be physically uncomfortable but also possibly harmful to your health.
Using probiotic supplements can help ensure you have enough beneficial bacteria to create an ideal environment for healthy digestion. Not only does a healthy digestive system greatly reduce the likelihood of physical discomfort from gas, constipation, bloating, or occasional diarrhea, it also facilitates consistent waste elimination from the body through the regular passing of stool and normalization of stool consistency.*
THE SCIENCE OF USANA® PROBIOTIC
A compound of Latin and Greek, the word “probiotic” means “favorable to life.” The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations defines probiotics as “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” Probiotic dietary supplements are beneficial because they replenish beneficial microflora and, thereby, encourage healthy bacterial growth. A proper microbial equilibrium in the gut can aid good digestion, support nutrient absorption, shorten colonic transit time, and enhance barrier function, which helps defend against potentially toxic microorganisms that may try to take hold in the walls of the intestinal tract.*
Lactobacillus and bifidobacterium are two families of bacteria strains that have been identified as part of the healthy, normal gut microbiota. Lactobacillus strains are primarily found in the small intestine, while bifidobacterium are needed in the large intestine. USANA Probiotic features a unique 50/50 mixture of Bifidobacterium BB-12® and Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG®†—two strains of probiotic bacteria that have been clinically proven to promote a natural balance of beneficial microflora in the gut.*
Research has also shown that the bacterial strains in USANA Probiotic may also play a role in sustaining healthy immune function. More immune cells are concentrated in the gut than in any other region of the body, and probiotics can help strengthen our natural defenses by modulating the cellular immune response.
WHY USANA® PROBIOTIC?
The beneficial effects of one strain of probiotics do not necessarily hold true for others, or even for different varieties of the same species or strain. A sufficient quantity of high-quality bacteria strains must survive the harsh environment of the stomach and enter the intestinal tract alive to be effective. Verified to supply 12 billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of viable bacteria—a level shown to be effective in clinical studies—USANA Probiotic contains Bifidobacterium BB-12 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG, two strains that are well documented to survive transit through the acidic environment of the stomach to colonize the intestines.
USANA Probiotic employs an advanced dairy- and sugar-free delivery system that guarantees the product will remain effective for at least 18 months when stored at room temperature. Refrigeration may prolong shelf life even further. It is also easy to use. Simply take USANA Probiotic alone or add one serving (one stick pack) of the mildly sweet, powdered formulation to cold beverages or foods every one or two days for proven digestive health results.*
