Help Your 'Good' Bacteria to Boost Your Immune System

on March 16, 2019

Nowadays we hear a lot of different remedies and diets for gut cleanse. But contrary to popular belief, having a clean small intestine only sounds fancy but it’s absolutely not healthy. You need those microorganisms to ensure a healthy digestion.

When you hear the word ‘bacteria’ you automatically think of something that can cause disease. But it is important to remember that ‘good’ bacteria are a requirement for a healthy gut.

Not having a healthy microbiota, may lead you to experiencing symptoms such as abdominal pain, indigestion, bloating, and food allergies. All of which lead to an overall weak immune system (no one likes that!).

This may be due to the increase of harmful bacteria in the gut, causing an unbalanced bacterial floral. The ‘good’ bacteria have a difficult time displacing unwanted bacteria and need help.

This is where prebiotics and probiotics come into play.

Prebiotics is a non-digestible food ingredient that beneficially affects the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/ or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon, thus improving the host health.

Probiotic is a living microorganism which when administered in adequate amounts, confer health benefits to the host.

VitaMed’s Prevent Defense is arguably one of the most effective Prebiotic/ Probiotic formulations in the market, containing two unique ingredients, PreforPro and Bacillus subtilus DE111.

It sustains a new and unique formula that has proven to support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut through a novel prebiotic that is not fiber or starch based. As compared to general prebiotics in the market which require large dosages to be effective and only work in the colon.

PreforPro addresses the drawbacks of typical prebiotics in the market which sets it apart from other competitors. The benefits include:

  • Efficacious in small doses within hours
  • Functions in both the small and large intestines
  • Does not cause flatulence
  • Doesn’t require refrigeration to remain active and is able to withstand heat and other adverse conditions.

VitaMed’s patented targeted release capsules support the normal immune reaction of intestinal cells and maintain gut’s barrier function. Consumers today have the ability to influence their gut microbiota and it is VitaMed’s goal to increase your overall health.
