How Your Gut Flora Keeps You from Getting Fat and Sick


We’ve only recently begun to understand the extent of the gut flora’s role in health and prevention of disease.

Among other things, our gut flora promotes normal gastrointestinal function, provides protection from infection, regulates metabolism and comprises more than 75% of our immune system.

Recent research has shown that the gut flora, and the health of the gut in general, also plays a significant role in both obesity and diabetes.

Chris Kresser, a globally recognized leader in the functional and integrative medicine recently quoted: “I’ve seen this in my practice… Nearly every patient I treat with a blood sugar issue also has a leaky gut, a gut infection, or some other chronic inflammatory gut condition.”

The vast majority of the probiotics contained in traditional probiotic supplements will be DEAD before they ever reach your gut.

And of course, dead probiotics are completely worthless.

One of the greatest challenges in creating a truly effective probiotic formula is being able to actually deliver delicate probiotic cells to the gastrointestinal tract, fully intact and alive.

Because probiotics are living bacteria, they are also extremely sensitive to even the slightest change in environmental conditions.

In fact, research has shown that after one year on the shelf, in a sealed bottle at room temperature, on average only 32% of conventionally produced probiotics survive.

Thus MOST traditional probiotic supplements, while claiming billions upon billions of active cells per dose, will only wind up delivering a very small percentage of what their label promises alive and well to your gut.

BioTrust has developed what we feel is the most advanced probiotic formula anywhere, using cutting-edge, patented Microencapsulation Technology™ developed by Italian researchers to solve this very problem.
