Probiotics are friendly bacteria that live naturally in the gut. Studies show that probiotics help maintain a balanced intestinal and digestive environment, which results in healthy digestion, regular bowel function and general wellbeing.
Swisse Ultiboost Inner Balance contains Danisco HOWARU(r) bifido, a clinically tested strain of probiotic scientifically shown to support the body's natural defences and help support a healthy immune system. HOWARU(r) bifido has been carefully selected for its ability to survive the digestive processes.
Swisse Ultiboost Inner Balance can balance levels of friendly bacteria that may have been interrupted due to antibiotic use.
