Probiotics are "friendly bacteria" naturally present in our intestinal tract. Their primary role is to support digestion and regularity as well as prevent pathogens from invading the intestinal tract. These live microorganisms are one of the body's primary natural defenses. Astragalus is one of the most commonly used plants to boost energy and support the immune system. Astragalus has a long history of use for its invigorating effect on the immune system and its protective action against bacteria and viruses. Vitamin C enhances the immune response when is supplemented with probiotics. It also assists in wound healing by facilitating connective tissue formation.
