Health Benefits of Probiotics
The health benefits of probiotics are numerous, and still being discovered. Research shows probiotic supplementation may:
- Support gut health*
- Support normal digestion and absorption of nutrients*
- Support the lining of the gut and the health of endothelial cells*
- Enhance some aspects of skin health*
- Support normal inflammation levels*
- Enhance immune function*
- Support healthy weight*
- Reduce symptoms of Traveler’s Diarrhea*
- Enhance respiratory health, especially in endurance athletes*
The problem is, with so many strains available, it’s difficult to know which probiotic formula to choose.

What makes FloraMend Prime Probiotic Unique?
FloraMend Prime Probiotic contains 5 billion live cells, made up of Lactobacillus gasseri (KS-13), Bifidobacterium longum (MM-2), and Bifidobacterium bifidum (G9-1).
While some probiotic strains could cause weight gain by making more energy available from food, Lactobacillus gasseri (KS-13) has been shown to improve weight management. A human study resulted in an average 4.6 percent reduction in visceral and body fat when this strain of Lactobacillus gasseri was supplemeneted.
The Bifidobacterium strains support gut immunity and flora balance, as well as normal pH levels.* Research shows they also support absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphoruse. Though they haven’t been shown to support weight loss, some evidence suggests they could help reduce the chance of weight gain.

The FloraMend Prime Probiotic capsules are stable at room temperature and withstand the acid environment of the stomach, so they can be delivered to the intestines where they’re needed.

Frequently Asked Questions
The following are the most common questions I get from members of my online fitness training program, Facebook group members, or blog readers. These are my answers and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Thorne.
Is FloraMend Prime Probiotic the best probiotic on the market?
FloraMend Prime Probiotic is a very high-quality probiotic, but at this point, there’s no way to identify a probiotic formulas as “the best.” Scientists are still learning what probiotics do, and how specific species, and even specific strains, interact with people’s diegestive systems. Asking such a question would be like asking what the best shoe is.
If you’re looking for a good, general health probiotic, or you need one that supports weight management, seasonal allergies, or immune function, this would be a good probiotic to include in your nutrition plan. However, it’s probably best to use two or three different formulas, which include unique species or strains, to promote the best health for your gut.
Why does the formula have probiotic species with extra letters and numbers after their names?
The additiona letters and numbers, such as Lactobacillus gasseri (KS-13) denotes the specific strain in the formula. Though the species (i.e. Lactobacillus gasseri) provides some common health benefits amongst all the strains, identifying the strain creates more specificity. The research supporting FloraMend’s formula can only be attributed to that specific formula, because it involves only those specific, trademarked strains.
I’ve been taking FloraMend for a while, and I still have issues with…What’s up with that?
Supplements, including probiotics, support your health, they rarely “cure” a health problem. In most cases, the health problems people face are a result of their diet, lifestyle, and exercise (or lack of exercise) choices.
If you take a probiotic and hope it’ll resolve all your digestive issues, without modifying your diet, you’ll be very disappointed.
If you’re not sure where to start with your diet, lifestyle, and exercise habits, I recommed getting a free copy of my ebook, The First 3 Habits of VIGOR(ESS) Health.
