When you hear the word bacteria, the first image that comes to mind might not be pleasant. But these microorganisms are not all bad news. There are plenty of friendly bacteria in your body—and they are called Probiotics.
The word Probiotics comes from a Greek term that means "for life." They help support your intestinal health and produce a favorable environment for the absorption of nutrients.** Probiotics help keep your digestive system functioning at its best—and Probiotic 10 contains over 20 billion live Probiotic cultures guaranteed at time of manufacture and 10 Probiotic strains in one convenient capsule.**
Probiotics are not only about the gut, though. They also support healthy immune function.** That's because a large percentage of the body's immune system is located in the gastrointestinal tract. The beneficial bacteria are on your side for helping you be your healthy best.**

Supporting a Balanced, Immune System Your body’s immune system is comprised of several organs, cells and tissues all working together. It’s exactly that – a system.
To function at its best, your immune system requires balance. Many factors, whether positive or negative, can influence the immune system. It’s why good nutrition is central to a balanced immune system.
Aside from achieving good nutrition through a balanced diet and supplementation, other healthy habits to support a strong, healthy immune system include getting regular physical activity, controlling stress, and getting adequate levels of sleep.
Nutrients for Supporting Your Immune System The role of micronutrients in our diet, namely vitamins and minerals, is key to helping maintain the health of your immune system.
Vitamin C – a Potent Free Radical Scavenger Vitamin C is an essential vitamin well-known for supporting the immune system.** The main reason is likely due to its key role in the proper functioning of white blood cells—vital components of your immune system.** The vitamin is also a potent antioxidant for neutralizing free radicals.**
Free radicals are unstable compounds that can occur naturally in our bodies as by-products of metabolism. They are also produced from environmental factors such as pollution, car exhaust, and smoking.
Vitamin C must be obtained from dietary sources such as citrus fruits and vegetables, but it can also be provided through supplementation.
Vitamin D – the Sunshine Vitamin Vitamin D received its nickname because it is naturally produced in the body from sun exposure, but that’s not all Vitamin d has to offer. While Vitamin D’s role in maintaining a healthy immune system is not as well-known as Vitamin C, it is just as important.**
This vitamin-like hormone plays a role in helping to regulate T and B-lymphocytes.** The majority of us are likely to have inadequate levels of vitamin D due to a variety of factors such as insufficient sun exposure and limited quantities of the nutrient found in food sources. Because overexposure to the sun is associated with other health risks, vitamin D supplements can be a positive addition and can contribute to overall intake.

The light from computers and the nighttime glow of smartphones can tire eyes, especially when you're looking at them constantly. Thankfully, it's easy to support vision with carotenoids like lutein.**
As the principal carotenoid found in the macula, a central area of the retina, lutein plays a big role in supporting your sight.** Specifically, lutein helps filter out the damaging blue light we expose ourselves to when using computers.**
In a study conducted in China with healthy subjects who regularly used computers, those who supplemented with lutein had better contrast sensitivity in a visual performance test. Contrast sensitivity is a key factor in vision during low-light situations, such as night driving.**
