Dairy-Free Probiotics: Milking The Benefits

Whether you struggle with digestive issues or are simply looking for a way to support your gut, probiotics are an evidence-based way to achieve optimal gut health. These tiny but mighty superheroes of the digestive world are like the guardians of your gut, promoting a harmonious gastrointestinal environment. Did you know that one of the primary functions of probiotics is to maintain a balanced and healthy gut microbiome? This is essential for proper digestion and nutrient absorption from the food you eat.

While there are a variety of dietary sources of probiotics, not all sources are free from dairy (i.e. yoghurt), meaning options for people avoiding dairy or lactose are limited (i.e. fermented foods & kombucha). Thankfully, there are a range of options for supplementation if you’re looking to add probiotics to your dairy free diet!


Dairy-Free Probiotics to the Rescue!

Inner Health Plus Dairy Free is a lactose-free solution for those seeking digestive harmony without the dairy intake. Depending on your preference, you can choose to take the dairy-free probiotics in either a convenient 1-a-day capsule or a powder to sprinkle onto food or drinks. Formulated with NCFM® and Bi-07 probiotic strains, Inner Health Plus Dairy Free probiotic provides gut health support, relieving gastrointestinal pain & discomfort.


What is NCFM & Bi07?

The probiotic strains Lactobacillus acidophilus (NCFM®) and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bi-07) come armed with the power to enhance levels of the good bacteria, lactobacillus and bifidobacteria, in your digestive system.¹ ² This is one of the ways that NCFM® and Bi-07 assist in the maintenance of a normal healthy gastrointestinal system and digestive function.² ³

NCFM® and Bi-07 also contribute to supporting immune system health,⁴⁻⁶ helping your body defend itself against pesky infections and illnesses.

Sometimes, we may overindulge in food and drink and be left with digestive discomfort. Here too NCFM® can come to the rescue, with research suggesting this probiotic strain can even relieve gastrointestinal pain and discomfort!⁷


A Happier, Healthier You with Probiotic Superheroes

Including a daily probiotic supplement with superhero strains Lactobacillus acidophilus (NCFM®) and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bi-07) can be an effective way to support everyday gut and immune health and general wellbeing.
