How Probiotics Protect Your Skeleton

Osteoporosis, a condition in which bones weaken, is prevalent within the female population. The risk of developing osteoporosis rises with age. Over 50% of women over age 80 are diagnosed with osteoporosis. Fortunately, there are several effective treatment options and preventative measures already available for osteoporosis.

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have found a relationship between the use of probiotic supplements and the prevention of age-related bone loss among older women. Conducted at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Mölndal, Sweden, 90 women of an average age of 76 were given either probiotic or placebo supplements for an entire year. The study found that bone loss was decreased by 50% in women who received probiotics vs. women who received a placebo.

What’s more, the subjects who received probiotic supplements showed no signs of side effects.

It's clear that there is a connection between the gut microbiome, inflammation, and bone loss.

These discoveries only help to support Betr's stance on the importance of probiotics. Within Betr's healthy eating plan, a variety of probiotic-rich foods are included in Level 1, such as sauerkraut, kimchi, and kefir. Upon progressing to Level 2, yogurt is reintroduced as an additional probiotic source.

While the Betr Health eating plan provides nourishment to cultivate an ideal environment for a healthy microbiome, you may discover added benefits by incorporating a probiotic supplement to enhance the effects of the Betr Health protocol. The Daily Essentials Supplements contain a proprietary blend of 11 probiotics that have been shown to provide a multitude of health-enhancing benefits. Our 11-strain probiotic blend includes the following species of beneficial bacteria:

  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus- produces lactic acid and boosts immune function.
  • Bifidobacterium Longum & B. Bifidum- aids in nutrient digestion, absorption and maintains a healthy bacterial balance in the gut
  • Lactobacillus Plantarum- promotes essential amino acid production while suppressing unhealthy bacterial strains
  • Lactococcus Lactis- supports the immune system and skin health, countering allergy disorders, hypertension, and bowel inflammation.
  • Bifidobacterium Breve- supports skin health and guards against allergy disorders, digestive inflammation, and digestive disease.
  • Bifidobacterium Infantis- aids proper digestion, naturally occurring in the mouth and gut.
  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus- hinders the growth of unhealthy bacterial strains.
  • Lactobacillus Casei- regulates digestion and maintains a healthy bacterial balance.
  • Lactobacillus Helveticus- elevates mood, mental clarity, bone health, blood pressure, and immune function.
  • Lactobacillus Salivarius- reduces allergic symptoms, inflammation, and cholesterol.

Taken in capsule form once daily and combined with our healthy eating plan, this probiotic blend ensures the development and maintenance of a microbiome that supports your digestive health and overall well-being.
