Health Benefits of iFlora Probiotics from Sedona Labs:
- Support normal digestion and absorption of nutrients

Stress, poor diet, medication, and chlorinated water, are all factors in daily life that disturb the balance of the digestive tract. Probiotic supplements repopulate the digestive tract with the healthy cultures needed to maintain proper digestive and immune health.
A healthy digestive tract contains many strains of probiotic cultures. That’s why it’s beneficial to take a multi-strain probiotic supplement instead of a probiotic supplement with just one strain. Probiotics are naturally found in the human body and are safe and effective for even the youngest children.

What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics are the natural cultures or flora necessary to keep the digestive tract and immune system functioning properly. Since a healthy digestive tract contains hundreds of different cultures, multi-strain probiotic supplements more closely match the natural ecology of the digestive system than probiotics with only one strain.
Every day, the good, natural flora in the body is killed off by stress, poor diet, caffeine, alcohol, antibiotics, antacids, over-the-counter and prescription medications, chlorinated water, and a toxic environment. Taking a multi-strain probiotic daily supports a healthy digestive tract and immune system by supporting the natural flora that is often destroyed by daily living.
What is a Synbiotic Formula?
A synbiotic formula is a powerhouse combination of probiotics and prebiotics—known as “food” for probiotics—that supports digestive health. Prebiotics are so named because they pass through the digestive system and promote the growth of essential, beneficial probiotics within the digestive tract.
Your Digestive System
The digestive tract is essentially a tube that runs from one end of the body to the other. It is a complex environment filled with microorganisms that are essential for proper digestion and nutrient absorption. And, because 70% of immune cells originate in the intestinal tract, it is also a center for immune health.
Probiotics, or beneficial bacteria found in supplements and certain fermented foods, can help fortify the balance of microorganisms in the digestive tract. Probiotics work to keep this intestinal balance in favor of the “good” guys versus the “not-so-good” guys, or non-beneficial bacteria. This important microbial balance is essential for balanced digestive health and helps support a healthy immune system.
Prebiotics, a type of fiber, are also known as oligosaccharides. Oligosaccharides are found naturally in certain fruits and vegetables while fructooligosaccharides are a form of this beneficial nutrient used in health supplements. Prebiotics act as “food” for the beneficial probiotics and microorganisms in the digestive tract.
Sedona Labs probiotic formulas all feature a specific non-gas forming prebiotic fiber called a short-chain fructooligosaccharide (NutraFlora® scFOS®). This prebiotic’s unique short-chain structure make it an excellent choice for beneficial probiotic support in the digestive tract without the bloating or gas that some fibers produce.
