Genestra Brands probiotics and thymus extract

For more than 20 years, Genestra Brands has been known for its natural supplements that promote better overall health. Today, we talk about HMF Intensive probiotic formula for better gut health and Thym thymus extract to strengthen the immune system.

The importance of probiotics

Probiotics are living microorganisms – good bacteria – naturally present in the gut, which contribute to the health of the intestinal flora1. Since the latter is essential to the proper functioning of the body, it is imperative to take care of it. To do this, taking probiotic supplements is recommended. They promote better digestion and assimilation of nutrients, restore the balance of the intestinal flora and strengthen the immune system by activating the cells contained in the wall of the digestive tract2.

Genestra Brands’ HMF Intensive probiotic formula is a combination of four probiotic strains, proven to be effective in several clinical studies. It helps promote gastrointestinal health, restore the gut microbiota after taking antibiotics and relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

The role of the thymus gland3

The thymus gland is a small organ whose shape resembles that of a thyme leaf, hence its name. It is located in the upper chest, just above the heart. The thymus is considered “the school of the immune system” since it is where the T-cells learn to play their role as protectors of the body. Of the lot, only 2% of T-cell cells join the blood system, in which their function is to recognize and destroy infected and cancerous cells. In humans, the thymus reaches its maximum size at the age of one year and atrophies over time, as its production of T-cell decreases.

Offering a high concentration of lyophilized bovine thymus extract, Genestra Brands Thym product is recommended to support the immune system in case of dysfunction, allergy, asthma, bronchitis, colds, flu or other parasitic or viral infections.
