HOW HEALTHY IS YOUR GUT?

Inside your gastrointestinal tract are trillions of microbes, also known as micro-organisms, consisting of viruses, small quantities of yeast and 800 - 1,000 different types of bacteria. 1,2 This is known as your microbiota, or microflora, with the highest number of microbes being in the colon.

This microbiota ecosystem is like a seesaw, constantly auto-regulating. The balance can be affected due to environmental factors, diet, stress, age, medications such as antibiotics, and a weak immunity. 3

Friendly live bacteria – probiotics – balance our good and bad intestinal bacteria, helping our digestion, metabolism and immune systems stay healthy.

Imbalance in the microbiota is known as a dysbiosis and can mean indigestion,
bloating, bowel problems, flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea – even IBS (Irritable
Bowel Syndrome) and Crohn’s disease. 4,5,6

HOW OUR INTESTINAL
MICROBIOTA HELPS US ?
  • Developing and maturing the immune system (70% of our immune cells are in our intestines).
  • Developing the digestive system and digesting certain foods that the stomach and the small intestine can’t.
  • Creating a barrier effect (to limit the propagation of pathogens – infectious agents, such as a virus, that cause illness or disease) .
  • Absorbing vitamins and minerals (K,B1,B2,B6,B9,B12)
WHAT IS PROBIO SUPPORT?

Hello Day’s Probio Support has been specifically created to help you prepare yourself and your health throughout the seasons so that you look better, feel better, and flow better every day.

Probio Support is a premium range of probiotics and prebiotics to prevent and improve a wide range of digestion problems and discomforts. Probiotics are friendly live bacteria while prebiotics are a type of carbohydrate that nourish this good bacteria in your gut, helping it to grow and thrive.

WHY CERTAIN PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENTS
ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS?

Probiotic bacteria may be defined as ‘live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host’. 7 Each one of us has our very own unique ecosystem. 8

A probiotic should contain more than one billion living micro-organisms to increase the chance of adequate gut colonisation. 9 Most clinical trials show that 10 - 15 billion CFUs (colony forming units) are needed for effective daily care, which is what Hello Day’s Probio Support offers.

A large number of clinical studies have also shown that specific strains of probiotics can help with immunity and protect against certain intestinal infections and inflammatory chronic diseases, including IBS and Crohn’s disease. 4,5,6.

Our Probio Support products contain more than one live strain, which can be particularly beneficial because colonisation may only occur with one strain and not another. What’s more, probiotic mixtures can often work together in synergy.

WHAT MAKES OUR PROBIO SUPPORT SO EFFECTIVE?

Hello Day’s Probio Support range consists of a carefully chosen selection of effective live strains combined with a ‘Free From’ list of ingredients to a GMP’s (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified manufacturing process. For example:

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Streptococcus thermophiles: to restore the microbiota balance and ease digestive problems by reducing bloating, flatulence and intestinal discomfort. Recolonising the digestive tract reduces the frequency of diarrhoea.
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei: to reduce constipation.

We offer two Probio Support products, with clinical trials demonstrating the efficacy of both.

Bioharmony Balance 10

A symbiotic dietary supplement to help improve digestive comfort and reduce flatulence, bloating and abdominal pain. It combines complementary ingredients such as carefully selected friendly probiotics, to restore the intestinal microbiota balance and act upon symptoms linked to irritable bowel syndrome, and Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) to stimulate good bacteria growth and improve transit disorders.

Immunity Support 11

A dietary supplement to help strengthen your body’s defence system against viruses and pathogenic agents. It’s a combination of carefully selected probiotics, which restore the intestinal microbiota balance, as well as Vitamin D to help your immune system function normally.

FAQ
What’s the difference between probiotics and prebiotics?
Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms naturally present in our bodies. Prebiotics are nutrients for these microorganisms, improving their growth and survival rate.
How do probiotics and prebiotics work and how can they benefit me?
The digestive system is mainly made of microorganisms that help to break down and digest food, protect us from pathogens, regulate our immune system and produce vitamins. 13 Probiotics and prebiotics are a way of restoring and preventing a microbiota imbalance. The different live strains found inside Probio Support can recolonise the gut for good health.
How is the Probio Support range different from other probiotic brands?
Probio Support is a range of dietary supplements with ferment lactic, vitamins and prebiotics, providing more than enough CFUs (colony forming units) needed for effective daily care. The mixture of probiotics may act in synergy and be more effective than one live strain.
Who is Probio Support for?
Microbiota is essential throughout our lives. Immunity Support and Bioharmony Balance are for people of all ages to help maintain or restore a healthy, balanced gut flora.
What are the different live strains in Probio Support and how do they help?
Bioharmony Balance contains Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Casei and Streptococcus Thermophilus and Fructooligosaccharides (FOS). Clinical studies show that these improve digestive comfort by reducing bloating, abdominal pain, constipation and bowel movements. 12,14,15,16

Immunity Support contains Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG, Bifidobacterium Animalis Lactis and Bifidobacterium bifidum and Vitamin D. Clinical trials show that these strains reduce intestinal and respiratory infections by strengthening the immune system. 17,18,19

Which is more effective: prevention or cure?
Prevention is the most effective method as it is easier to prevent microbiota deregulation and imbalance than it is to restore it.
How often should I take Bioharmony Balance and Immunity Support?
For prevention, we recommend one capsule each day for one month, repeated every three months to regulate your microbiota balance throughout the seasons and stay in good health.

For a cure, take one capsule each day until symptoms disappear. Then take one capsule a day for one month and repeat every three months.

Should I take Bioharmony Balance as well as Immunity Support?
Many Hello Day customers take both for optimum results. Bioharmony Balance is the gold standard to restore and maintain healthy microbiota all year round while Immunity Support is ideal during cooler months against infections, or during Spring and Summer against allergies.
How long will it take to see results with Probio Support?
Clinical trials have proven that effects can be seen with a prescribed dose of at least 10,000 CFUs (Colony Forming Units) and are visible within 15 days of starting treatment.
I’m suffering from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) – how can Bioharmony Balance help me?
Probiotics are believed to help alleviate IBS symptoms. Bioharmony Balance helps reduce the most common digestive disorders and discomforts such as bloating, flatulence and bowel movements.
Are Bioharmony Balance and Immunity Support lactose/gluten free and suitable for vegans?
Certainly: they’re suitable if you are gluten or lactose intolerant or on a vegan diet.
What about those suffering from chronic illnesses (diabetes, high cholesterol?)
The strains used are also suitable following treatments for chronic illnesses and can be taken without problems to treat any related illnesses and associated discomforts.
Can I take probiotics if I’m pregnant?
Yes, in fact probiotics are recommended during pregnancy so that a balanced and diversified microbiota can be passed on to your baby.
