Introducing Biotic 7
April 1, 2019
Our intestinal tract (also called gut or digestive system) has 75 to 100 trillion bacteria living in it. Yes, that was trillion. Some are good bacteria (probiotics) and some are bad bacteria and more good bacteria equals better health.
Research has exploded in recent years surrounding this intestinal flora and its importance to our everyday health. We need enough good bacteria (probiotics) in our digestive tract to have optimal breakdown and absorption of our food. Clinical evidence suggest probiotics may:
- Support a healthy gut microbiome
- Support a healthy inflammatory response
- Support a healthy immune function
- Support digestive function
- Support a healthy mood
Those all sound like great things, but you may be wondering, do I really need a probiotic? Before we answer that, answer these questions first. Have you ever taken antibiotics? Do you drink tap water? Were you born by C-section? Do you have stress in your life? Do you eat non-organic food? If you answered yes to any of these questions then our answer is also yes, you probably should be taking a probiotic. Trick question though, because if you answered some no, you should probably still be taking a probiotic; they’re that important.
Biotic 7 Background & Benefits
With all those benefits in mind, we’re thrilled to introduce NutriKey’s new Biotic 7 supplement, a multi-strain probiotic, containing six of the most researched strains of bacteria (20 billion CFUs total), plus 2 billion CFUs of saccharomyces boulardii.
- The probiotic strains in Biotic 7 have been shown to help digest lactose, synthesize B vitamins, promote healthy stool consistency, and support the immune system.
- Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast that cleans out other pathogens (bad microbes) in the gut so good strains of bacteria can colonize the intestinal tract instead.
Most people will benefit from taking just one capsule per day and we recommend taking this capsule at night before bed.
For those with severe digestive issues, like an active C-Diff infection, we recommend working with one of our nutritionists or dietitians, available in-person or by phone, for personalized support for your unique health history.
