Health Benefits at a Glance:
Probiotics are beneficial bacterial strains that support health on the other hand prebiotic is a nutrient that encourages the growth of those health-promoting strains. Synbiotic refers to a combination of those two types of ingredients—like the seven special probiotic strains + plant-based fructooligosaccharide prebiotic you’ll find in FLORASSIST® Liver Restore.
Why it Works:
The liver and the digestive system are connected—literally—by a blood vessel called the portal vein. This vein brings blood from the digestive tract directly to the liver.
This blood contains nutrients from food intake. But it also contains toxins and other unwanted compounds—stuff that’s often created by undesirable bacteria in the gut. The more unwanted bacteria, the more these compounds may end up filtering through the liver.1-3
This is where FLORASSIST® Liver Restore comes in. This clinically studied combination help encourage a healthy ratio of gut bacteria by providing 7 liver-friendly probiotic strains along with a prebiotic called a fructooligosaccharide. Together, this synbiotic formula helps crowd out the unwanted bacteria that create the stuff a liver doesn’t like.4,5
The Science Behind the Product:
The following studies indicate confident outcomes:
Study 1—overweight: in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, two groups of overweight subjects followed an energy-balanced diet and physical activity regimen and took two capsules of the same synbiotic blend found in FLORASSIST® Liver Restore capsules every day for 28 weeks.6
The study measured enzymes that are commonly used to judge liver health. While statistical differences between the placebo and synbiotic groups appeared in just 7 weeks, at the end of the study, the synbiotic group had shown remarkable improvement.6
The probiotic-prebiotic combo in FLORASSIST® Liver Restore also helped improve measurements of C-reactive protein, a biomarker produced in the liver. Healthy hsCRP levels can be consistent with liver health.7 In this study, hsCRP measurements improved by 54% after 28 weeks.6
Study 2—healthy BMI: a second study mimicked the first, except subjects were with a normal body mass index. The placebo group exhibited an improvement in liver enzyme biomarkers by only 3%, while the synbiotic group improved by 17% after 28 weeks of supplementation.4 In this study, hsCRP improved by 46% after 28 weeks.4
How to Use:
- Take two capsules per day, with or without food, and/or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
