Herbalife Nutrition, a premier global nutrition company, recently introduced its Simply Probiotic powder mix to the Philippine market. The new science-backed, easy-to-use product helps promote the growth of friendly bacteria in the body’s microbiome to support a healthy digestive system.
“Nowadays, maintaining a healthy digestive system can be a challenge for us, with many people filling it with highly processed foods, or eating too much, or eating too fast. So it is important to ensure that we get a source of probiotics to maintain the proper balance of the microorganisms that live in our digestive tract,” said Sridhar Rajagopalan, senior director and sub-region head, Herbalife Nutrition Philippines.
“Simply Probiotic is the result of our extensive research on digestive health. What makes it different from the probiotic products that are currently available in the market is its GanedenBC30® strain,” added Sridhar Rajagopalan.
Patented by Herbalife Nutrition, the GanedenBC30® strain survives the acidic gastric journey in the stomach and doesn’t mature until it gets to the intestines.
According to the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP), an organism can only be considered probiotic if it survives the transit through the gastric system in order to confer a health benefit on its host.
What makes the GanedenBC30® an extremely stable probiotic is its cell’s capacity to form a protective spore. This gives it the ability to survive harsh manufacturing processes, product shelf life and, finally, the journey through the digestive system.
Once consumed, the GanedenBC30® probiotics’ spores will then germinate and grow until they reach the intestines where the conditions are just right.
Only one serving a day of the Simply Probiotic needs to be consumed. It has no added flavors, colors, sugars, or sweeteners, and can be consumed along with one’s favorite food or drink.
