Healthy Trinity is designed to assist with good gastrointestinal health on 4 fronts - to improve the absorption of nutrients from your food, enhance digestion (goodbye gas and bloating), stimulate regular bowel habits and maximize your immune function.

If you want to learn more about HOW probiotics help with your immune system then read Professor Haffnagle's excellent book The Probiotics Revolution Check out my review.

The dosage suggested is 1 capsule a day, preferably taken with food but it can be taken without if that is more convenient. You can take MORE than 1 capsule a day if you feel that 1 is just not quite enough in your specific situation.

Because each person metabolizes things differently sometimes the standard dose is more than enough and sometimes it might be not quite enough. This is normal with probiotics.

Start off an extra low dose if you have any gastrointestinal issues such as IBS. With probiotics it is completely safe to start with a low dose and work up to the full amount as you see how your body handles a particular supplement. This is quite different to antibiotics where you need to take the full amount.

Probiotics occasionally make some folk feel bloated or gassy. Give your body time to adjust to this sudden increase in good bacteria. Usually within a week you can increase the dose to the suggested amount.

Natren takes great effort to ensure that Healthy Trinity reaches you with the probiotic bacteria 'alive and kickin'. Do your part by storing them in the fridge.

They guarantee that the probiotic bacteria are alive until the expiry date that is printed on the label. This is a responsible move that many manufacturers ignore.

You can buy Healthy Trinity by Natren through Amazon. You can also buy it in Canada too.
