OGDEN, UTAH, Oct. 19, 2010— Trace Minerals Research (TMR), a leading provider of mineral-based branded supplements for over 35 years, launches Probiotic 55 Billion, a unique encapsulated vegan probiotic formula that contains 10 strains of viable organisms, including Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus, the bacteria most dominantly found in the large and small intestines. Also, each capsule has been enteric-coated to help prevent probiotics from being damaged by stomach acid, allowing them to better reach the small intestine without being harmed by stomach acid.
“With all the new research out there about the need for probiotics, adding a probiotic product to our line was a perfect fit for us,” said Ryan Fisher, General Manager of TMR. “Probiotic 55 Billion has a potent blend of the most important bacteria people need for healthy gut function.”
Supplementing one’s diet with a probiotic is becoming more important given the recent research and studies that show that there are many factors that cause a decrease in intestinal flora, including age, stress, diet, and medications. Decreased intestinal flora can cause the digestive system to function incorrectly, allowing important nutrients the body needs to pass through the digestive system without being broken down and absorbed.
Even at 55 Billion colony forming units per serving, it only takes one capsule per day to add a high dosage of probiotics to the diet. Probiotic 55 Billion sells for a suggested retail price of $35.99 for a 30-capsule bottle and is available at natural and health food stores nationwide.
