SAN BRUNO, Calif., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly half of all Americans will make at least one resolution this year, and whether the resolve is made to hit the gym more often or to visit a foreign country, natural probiotics can help provide internal balance and immunity support for optimized health along the way. For those aiming to improve their health, probiotics support the immune system to help keep the body in balance, energized for exercise, while maintaining digestive balance for a smooth transition to a new, healthier diet. For aspiring globe-trotters, a travel-friendly probiotic can support the body through the stress and fatigue of travel and helps to quell any upsets that may arise from indulging in foreign feasts. Regardless of the resolutions route, resolving to incorporate probiotics into a daily routine helps ensure that the body is balanced and ready to take on 2013.


"New Year's resolutions can be tricky to stick to, but incorporating a probiotic supplement into your diet is an easy step to a healthier lifestyle," said Kerry Neville, a registered dietitian in Seattle. "I recommend making the simple resolution to add a daily yeast-based natural probiotic supplement, like Florastor®, to promote digestive harmony and to support a healthy immune system. Florastor® naturally supports the digestive and immune systems, and because it doesn't require refrigeration, it makes a great travel companion. While some resolutions are hard to maintain, adding a daily natural probiotic like Florastor® is an easy habit to adopt for a healthy new year."            

About Probiotic Supplements
Probiotic supplements help the good organisms in your intestines grow and get rid of the bad organisms that can disrupt normal intestinal function. Probiotic dietary supplements are grouped into two categories, yeast or bacteria, which interact with the body differently. Probiotic supplements containing bacteria are made up of different strains that are good for various tasks, so their effects may vary. Yeast-based Florastor® contains 250 mg of active Saccharomyces boulardii lyo, a friendly yeast found naturally on the skin of the tropical fruits lychee and mangosteen. Natural probiotic yeast like the yeast found in Florastor® can increase the production of immunoglobulin A (IgA), the primary infection-fighting antibody. This factor works to maintain a balanced digestive tract and support the function of the immune system. Additionally, unlike bacterial probiotics, yeast-based probiotics are not compromised by antibiotics. Most bacterial probiotic supplements require refrigeration, but the yeast in Florastor® does not, making Florastor® and Florastor®Kids ideal probiotics for traveling.
