Gut-Immunity Connection

Seventy percent of the body’s immune system resides in the gut. The so-called, gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) is home to a vast number of immune cells critical to healthy function. Imbalances in the gut can negatively impact immune cell maturation, inflammatory response, and overall immune response.

OMNi-BiOTiC® Balance strains demonstrate the key functions critical to robust immune health including: intestinal barrier strengthening, short chain fatty acid production, anti-inflammatory cytokine production, and immune cell maturation.
