LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In an effort to help the more than 74 percent of the United States population experiencing intestinal imbalances, global nutrition company Herbalife (NYSE:HLF) announced today the launch of Simply Probiotic, a science-backed, easy-to-use powder probiotic that delivers one billion active probiotic cultures per serving to support gut balance.
Simply Probiotic is designed to keep up with people's busy lifestyles. The powder is portable, requires no refrigeration or special storage. It mixes easily with hot, cold or frozen foods and beverages such as water, tea, coffee or Formula 1 Healthy Meal replacement shakes. It contains zero calories per serving, with no artificial flavors, colors, or added sweeteners, and is made with non-GMO ingredients.
"Simply Probiotic is an easy to use solution to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines for those who want to maintain a healthy digestive system," said Dr. John Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., Chief Health and Nutrition Officer, Herbalife Nutrition. "Our new probiotic powder can be added to any diet to promote beneficial bacteria in the gut."
Simply Probiotic is formulated with GanedenBC30®*, a patented, shelf-stable probiotic strain that can survive the acidic gastric passage to germinate in the intestines. Probiotics can assist individuals who experience daily gut discomfort due to poor diet, an on-the-go busy lifestyle, lack of exercise, or stress, and those who want to maintain a healthy digestive system.
In addition to Simply Probiotic, the Company's other digestive health products include Active Fiber Complex, Herbal Aloe Powder, and Herbal Aloe Concentrate. For more information or to purchase the products, visit Herbalife.com.
