Microbes are live micro-organisms that exist in our bodies and play a role in our general health and wellbeing. While some microbes are bad, the majority are beneficial. These "good bacteria" are called "probiotic", meaning "for life" in Greek. Forever Living Products recognises the important role that beneficial microbes play in human health and the need for supplementation through probiotic therapy. Designed to promote a healthy digestive system, Forever Active Probiotic is a small, easy-to-swallow beadlet that helps overcome imbalances created by our food and lifestyle choices, which can inadvertently lead to a reduction in the amount of naturally occurring probiotics. Forever Active Probiotic works primarily in the colon where it assists with the process of food digestion, helping to release nutrients for absorption, and contributes positively to normal human growth and development by helping to maintain a balanced and healthy system.
