How it works


Summary

As someone who works hard to improve your health through diet and exercise, you know what you eat affects your health. But what you may not know is that your cholesterol level can be affected by the types of bacteria in your digestive system.

Probiotics - bacteria that confer a health benefit to the host - are being studied to determine if through the gut, they may have a more significant role in helping to maintain and improve health and wellness. And emerging science is evaluating whether supplementing the microbiome (gut bacteria) with probiotics can play a role in health.
