Probiotics are much more important-and versatile-than most people realize. In addition to playing a vital role in our immune system and digestive and intestinal tract, probiotics are increasingly being studied for their role in other body functions, including mood and circulatory health. Daily supplementation with probiotics is slowly being seen as the norm for people who want to enjoy a consistently healthy lifestyle. Probio IQ™ is formulated with specific strains studied for their concurrent body and mind mood benefits, in addition to long-proven GI tract and immune system activity. ProBio IQ™ is combined with our clarifying herb blend which includes adaptogenic herbs and herbs for mental focus, making our formula truly a next generation probiotic.
