BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ — It’s that time of year again – time for family gatherings, holiday travel and on a less pleasant note, spreading germs.

One way to give your system a boost is through probiotics, one of today’s fastest growing nutritional trends.

However there is still much unfamiliarity surrounding probiotics, or beneficial bacteria, and what they mean for overall health. Fortunately the makers of GoodBelly Probiotic Fruit Drink – a leader in food nutrition – created a fun animated video to explain how probiotics work.

The video can be viewed and shared at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unfmJMtx2eg.

So what exactly IS the commotion about? The video explains that probiotics colonize in the intestine to starve harmful bacteria, restore balance, and create a barrier in the digestive track to help prevent viruses and other pathogens from passing into the bloodstream.

GoodBelly Probiotic Fruit Drink contains 20 billion live & active cultures of the beneficial probiotic strain Lactobacillus Plantarum 299v (Lp299v), proven through 16 years of use and over 17 clinical studies to strengthen immunity and improve digestive health. Products are made with antioxidant-rich fruit juice – they are not a yogurt – are dairy-free, wheat-free, soy-free and vegan.

GoodBelly‘s product line offers an option for all: Family-sized quarts; the ‘GoodBelly Plus, a single-serve option for those looking for their daily probiotics PLUS a daily multivitamin; and the newest GoodBelly BigShot 50, containing 50 billion probiotic CFUs per shot, developed for those times we need an extra boost.
