doTERRA International, a Utah-based wellness company and provider of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils, is proud to launch its potent blend of probiotics, PB Assist™. Probiotics (also referred to as intestinal microflora or friendly bacteria) are regarded by medical science as necessary in the human body for optimal digestive function and immune protection.
Orem, UT (PRWEB) June 10, 2009 — PB Assist combines cutting-edge enteric-release technology with five proprietary strains of probiotic microorganisms that support healthy digestive functions and immunities. Probiotic supplementation can play a critical role when intestinal microflora have been compromised or even killed. Stress, physical exertion, toxins in our diet, exposure to harmful microorganisms, and the use of antibiotic therapies can pose significant challenges to the colonization and function of friendly microorganisms in the gut. Furthermore, studies have shown a steady decline in friendly intestinal flora in both men and women as they age.
“When intestinal flora is compromised, our bodies become more prone to infectious pathogens in the gut, and our immune system cannot function optimally. To counter such threats, PB Assist can be used as part of a regular dietary supplement program and is safe for use by all members of the family,” said Rob Young, Vice President, Marketing & Product Development. Unlike other capsule or liquid probiotic products, PB Assist uses a patented technology to encapsulate proprietary strains of live probiotic cultures in a triple-layer beadlet that protects cultures from heat, cold, and exposure to air during manufacturing and through delivery to consumers. More importantly, the time-release enteric coating prevents contact of live cultures with harsh stomach acids, opening only in the intestine at site of colonization.
