Health Benefits at a Glance:
If you’re one of the millions of people who take probiotics, you probably do so for digestive health. However, the combination of five specific probiotics in FLORASSIST® Winter Immune Support can also promote healthy immune response, especially during winter. It also encourages immune cells to respond in a timely manner.1,2
Why it Works:
This formula combines probiotic strains B. lactis BS01, L. plantarum LP01, L. plantarum LP02, L. rhamnosus LR04, and L. rhamnosus LR05. These strains together, along with a specific prebiotic called galactooligosaccharides, have been clinically studied to promote a healthy immune response. A prebiotic is a sugar or fiber that probiotic bacteria use for food and fuel.
The Science Behind the Product:
IgA helps protect mucous membranes in the nose, throat and respiratory system from seasonal immune challenges and encourages your body’s healthy immune response. Research shows that a combination of the five specific probiotics in FLORASSIST® Winter Immune Support can promote healthy levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), an essential compound.3-5
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial, healthy subjects took one easy-to-use dose of this same probiotic and prebiotic blend every day for 90 days. Subjects receiving the probiotic and prebiotic combo reported decreased duration and lessened response to immune challenge compared to the group receiving placebo.4
Each package of FLORASSIST® Winter Immune Support comes with a one-month supply of single-serving unflavored powder stick packs. Just tear one open and mix with your favorite beverage—for best results, we suggest a nutritious smoothie or protein shake.
