MISSION VIEJO, Calif., June 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Researchers are continuing to discover that blood pressure, cognitive function and even a person’s mood may be highly influenced by the health of the gut microbiome. It’s one of the body’s most complex systems made up of a collection of microbes, including bacteria, fungi and viruses, and can change based on a person’s lifestyle and life stage. Recognizing this challenge in maintaining a healthy microbiome, Wakunaga of America has expanded its line of Kyo-Dophilus Probiotics to provide accurate strength and effectiveness for every stage of life.
Wakunaga’s existing five Kyo-Dophilus Probiotics include a three-strain Daily, Enzyme+, Cran+ and Kids probiotic in addition to a nine-strain Multi 9. This year they will release three more probiotic supplements: the three-stain Fifty+, the nine-strain Complete and the 12-strain Max. All eight probiotic formulas include the three clinically studied and proprietary blend strains labeled as the “The Friendly Trio”: Lactobacillus gasseri KS-13, Bifidobacterium bifidum G9-1 and Bifidobacterium longum MM-2. There are published studies on this specific combination of strains that show that they support improved digestion, reduce cold and seasonal allergy symptoms and a restore a healthy microbiome in aging adults.
“Probiotics are not just for digestive health, they are critical to your overall health because they aid in the absorption of nutrients and vitamins from the foods we eat and other supplements we take,” said James B. LaValle, clinical pharmacist, board certified clinical nutritionist and author of more than 20 books including the award winning, “Cracking the Metabolic Code.” “The correct dosage, strain and strength of probiotics you should be taking vastly depends on if you are male, female, adult, child and your current life stage. Each of our microbiomes is as unique as we are as individuals.”
LaValle who works with the NFL, NBA, MLB and the Pro Football Hall of Fame village to offer personalized health, wellness, diet and performance says some of the main reasons he recommends probiotics include improvements in immunity, to prevent duration and severity of colds or add extra protection when traveling; improved brain health, to help deliver vital brain chemicals; management of bacterial imbalances, especially important in urinary tract infections; and addressing a variety of digestive issues, from constipation and diarrhea to gas and bloating.
“Knowing which probiotic you need can be really confusing to most people, which is why I recommend the Kyo-Dophilus Probiotics line to patients because it takes the guesswork out of finding which formula is best for you,” said LaValle. “If you are over the age of 50 then take the Fifty+; if you are a child then take Kids; if you are a woman then take Cran+; if you are having digestive challenges then take Enzyme+ or Multi 9; and if you feel like your health status is in a good place then take Daily.”
