There is a world that few people know about, but given its proximity and importance, it deserves our attention. It is called the “Micro biome” and it’s located inside all of us. Our micro biomes are the communities of tiny “micro flora” or “friendly bacteria” that live inside our bodies, mostly inside our gut. Scientists estimate that there are over 100 trillion micro bacteria inside our GI (gastrointestinal) system at any given time. These tiny microorganisms, primarily found in your stomach and intestines, can have a large effect on your health and vitality.

Dr. James Balch, one of the leading health authors and foremost experts in nutrition,has stated that the flora in the healthy colon should consist of at least 85 percent good bacteria, such as lactobacilli, and the other 15% is coliform bacteria. Unfortunately, the typical bacteria counts in our gut are reversed due to our unhealthy diets and hectic lifestyles. Evidence of this unhealthy ratio is found in the volume of antacids, laxatives, and gas/bloating products purchased every day. These reactive purchases may help alleviate the acute issue, but do nothing to help us be proactive about true gut health. At any given time well over 100 million people in the US are struggling with “digestive issues”. Surveys show that digestive health consistently registers in the top five health concerns of consumers.
What is also interesting is that we, as a culture, are becoming more aware of the benefits of probiotics. In 2006 only 20% of Americans were aware of probiotics. That number rose to 52% in 2011. Now, over half of the population understands the important role of probiotics and the connection between digestive health and their general well-being. Simply put, if we can get our gut healthy, nutrient absorption improves, and our ability to live a happier, healthier, more productive life goes up exponentially. Our health is symbiotically connected with the health of the micro flora in our bodies, and the good news is that we can take control of our health and actually do something about these issues.

If increasing our good bacteria is the goal, then Forever Active Probiotic® (#222) is the perfect tool to help us. Forever Active Probiotic® provides one billion friendly bacteria in each beadlet. That’s one billion reasons to take it each and every day to help you return the natural flora to healthier balance. Forever Active Probiotic® is a unique formula sold exclusively through Forever Living Products. You cannot find this specific ratio of six strains in the patented shelf stable formula anywhere else in the world!



In general, probiotics are quite fragile. Most probiotic formulas on the market are not shelf stable and actually die while sitting on the shelf in the store or in transit. Many companies try to “Mega-Load” their probiotic product with 3-10 times the amount they claim on the label since they know by the time the product actually takes it to the consumer, a good portion or possibly the entire fragile micro flora have died. If they are still alive and then consumed, many of the friendly bacteria are destroyed in the acidic stomach environment. That is what makes Forever Active Probiotic® such a unique product. It uses an exclusive, patented encapsulation technology that protects the beneficial microbes at room temperature and also protects these microbes against the harsh environment of the stomach. This technology ensures that all six strains make it safely to the small and large intestine where they can flourish and help restore and maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in our gut. Forever uses four strains of Lactobacillus and two strains of Bifidobacteria that have been researched for their beneficial health promoting properties.

Another way to restore and maintain a healthy bacteria ratio in our gastrointestinal tracts is to feed healthy food to our good bacteria. What is the best food we can feed them? Prebiotics. It just so happens one of the best prebiotics we know is Aloe Vera! In fact scientists are so impressed with the relationship between pre and probiotics that they have given these combinations a name – synbiotics. This name reflects the synergy between pre and probiotics. What better combination of pre and probiotic than our very own Forever Aloe Vera Gel® and Forever Active Probiotic®. They are the perfect “synbiotic”. This is so important as we get our gut health back to 85% or more healthy bacteria levels. What an incredible time to be a part of Forever Living.

The awareness of probiotics is at an all time high, and Forever Living’s patented and exclusive Forever Active Probiotic® is the best source of friendly bacteria available on the market. Do yourself, and those you love, a favor – implement Forever Active Probiotic® into your life today, and enjoy a happier healthier life!
