4X Pro-B – Probiotics in My Life
I recently had the opportunity to shop on Costco.com for 4X Pro-B. I had been curious about probiotics for quite a while. I had eaten Activia a few times and never quite realized the benefits. Of course I later learned that probiotics are something that you must take consistently every day for them to really help you and take effect.
So I jumped at the chance to participate in this mission.
4X Pro-B is an active probiotic bacteria that helps maintain digestive health and product contains 4 strains of natural, beneficial bacteria: Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium longum, and Bifidobacterium bifidum. This is a pill that you take daily.
- A few words on probiotic bacteria:The body needs beneficial bacteria for digestive system health.Bifidobacteria are an important component of the intestinal microflora. As we age, the numbers of Bifidobacteria may be reduced.
