Life 9 Spotlight

One of the most powerful things we can do for our health is to balance and support our gut! Many today consider regularly taking a high quality probiotic to be one of the core pieces to a healthy gut which in turn is a key to brain, immune, skin health and more. Think about it, everything we eat or drink is sent through our digestive system. Every single thing we put into our bodies to give our cells energy passes through this system, so supporting it daily can give us huge benefits!



  • Stress, medications, illness, sugar & processed grain consumption, and modern day chemicals all serve to deplete our natural probiotic stores.
  • Because your immune system starts in your gut, many consider taking a high quality probiotic to be one of the core pieces to overall health!

"Your body contains about 100 trillion bacteria -- more than 10 times the number of cells you have in your entire body. It's now quite clear that the type and quantity of micro-organisms in your gut interact with your body in ways that can either prevent or encourage the development of many diseases. The ideal ratio between the bacteria in your gut is 85 percent "good" and 15 percent "bad."

BUT not all probiotics are created equally, and unfortunately, the options at the pharmacy counter are less than desirable. We want a source of good bacteria that can easily be absorbed, is diverse yet doesn't interact with each other or endogenous bacteria, and is potent enough to make a difference in our health. This is why we love Life 9 and MightyPro from Young Living!

LIFE 9 PROBIOTIC Life 9 is a proprietary, high-potency probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures from 9 beneficial bacteria strains that promotes healthy digestion, supports gut health, and helps maintain normal intestinal function for overall support of a healthy immune system. These bacteria have been studied well to ensure that they work well together and even work synergistically, supporting each others' roles of improving digestion and overall health.

Life 9 is specially designed with delayed-release capsules, a dual-sorbent desiccant, and a special bottle and cap that ensure your Life 9 stays fresh and effective. Each bottle contains 30 capsules, making it easy to use this helpful supplement daily.

Life 9 includes 9 beneficial probiotic strains for full-spectrum gut support:

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus: the most common probiotic of ‘friendly' bacteria that lives naturally in the body to protect against disease-causing bacteria
  • Bifidobacterium lactis: commonly used in fermented foods, supplies the body with good bacteria to overrule unhealthy overgrowth
  • Lactobacillus plantarum: a lactic acid bacteria, some studies show activity as an antioxidant, an ability to support the body's response to inflammation, and potential for supporting blood sugar levels
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus: has beneficial properties for the digestive and immune systems, particularly against urinary and intestinal pathogens
  • Lactobacillus salivarius: helps the body break down food, absorb nutrients, and fight off overgrowth of organisms that might cause diseases.
  • Streptococcus thermophilus: some studies have shown this strain to stimulate disease-fighting cells, stunt growth of tumors and strengthen the immune system.
  • Bifidobacterium breve: a type of bacteria that lives symbiotically in the intestines of humans, have historically been used for conditions including constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and even cold and flu.
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum: products lactic acid and antibacterial substances including acetic acid to suppress harmful bacterial strains
  • Bifidobacterium longum: a multifunctional probiotic that is effective in supporting overall digestion as well as improving immune function, studies may show that its multifunctional effects are attributed to its ability to stabilize gut microbiota and improve the intestinal environment.

Many components of our modern lifestyle increase our need to supplement with healthy bacteria - medications, chlorinated water, contaminated water supplies, consuming sugar, a lack of dietary fiber, and mental and emotional stress. Much of this is within our control, but even with the best dietary habits, we still need extra support! Probiotics replenish the body's source of good bacteria and have been shown to: Assist the body with production of B Vitamins Improve nutrient absorption via healthy gut flora Support immune system function and recovery from infection Suppress unhealthy fungi and yeast such as Candida Improve overall digestion
