LIFE 9 aka my BFF
Let’s chat probiotics for a moment, shall we? Usually, when we hear bacteria or yeast, we think BAD. However, there are actually good bacteria in your digestive tract that help to keep you healthy. We want to get those good bacteria into our digestive tracts and let them live there! 80% of our immune system is in our gut so keeping it healthy is SUUUUUPER important! A gut full of good bacteria is a healthy, well-functioning gut.
Probiotics work by correcting an imbalance of the friendly bacteria in a person’s digestive system. In order to be helpful, probiotics need to be live. YL reformulated their probiotic last year to include 4 more healthy strains of live bacteria, renaming it to LIFE 9 (which stands for the 9 strains of bacteria that it contains!) The strains that are included in this capsule are vital to overall gut health with a significant amount of cultures. What’s unique about this formula is it’s a time release capsule so you deliver more bacteria where they actually need to go.
Probiotics protect our bodies and help them function properly. They help break down our food into absorbable nutrients. Without probiotics our bodies do not properly absorb the nutrients we put into our bodies. Our modern lives deplete probiotics from our systems. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the medicines we take the health and beauty products we use... all contribute to lowering our immune system and lowering our probiotic levels.
Young Living's Life 9 provides 17 billion live cultures. You might be thinking "whoa, isn't that a lot?" but no the human body requires trillions for proper function. You can read this article for further verification.
