FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 37 years, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based

Life Extension has been the global authority on health, wellness and nutrition, as well as the leading supplier of high-quality vitamins and supplements.

New to its science-based Florassist® probiotic line are Florassist Immune Health and Florassist® Prebiotic Chewable.

Every year, millions of Americans have their immune systems put to the test. FLORASSIST® Immune Health a recently released dietary supplement product from Life Extension, that supports healthy levels of an essential, naturally occurring compound which helps protect mucus membranes from immune challenges.

Scientists have discovered that a combination of specific probiotics can promote healthy levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), an essential, naturally occurring compound. IgA helps protect mucous membranes in the nose, throat, and respiratory system from year-round immune challenges and encourages the body's healthy immune response.

The benefits of FLORASSIST Immune Health include convenient, probiotic support for robust immune health, encourages healthy duration of immune defense, helps protect a sensitive nose, throat, and respiratory system, provides year-round support for immune response.

"FLORASSIST Immune Health is an excellent probiotic that provides focused support for robust immune health, all year long," says Michael Smith, M.D., senior health scientist and spokesperson for Life Extension.

According to Dr. Smith, the immune system works in many ways to keep optimal health at bay.  It helps block and fight potential undesirable bacteria.

One popular way to address the shortage of good bacteria is to supplement with probiotics. This can be helpful, but it is also important to make sure that these probiotics have an adequate prebiotic food source.

Life Extension has introduced Florassist® Prebiotic chewable containing a scientifically validated dose of PreticX™ prebiotic fiber containing 70 percent xylooligosaccharides to optimize potential of beneficial bacteria like bifidobacteria.

"Bifidobacteria occur naturally in human gastrointestinal tract, flourishing in younger people and decreasing as we get older," says Dr. Smith. "This may be due to complex individual factors, such as a person's physiology, immune system and lifestyle."

Bifidobacteria metabolize the exact dietary carbohydrates that we are unable to digest. They have also been shown to directly and indirectly promote health in a variety of other ways, such as providing critical fuel to the cells that line the colon, as well as modulating certain components of the immune system.

The xylooligosaccharides found in FLORASSIST® Prebiotic Chewable tablets are capable of optimizing the growth potential of gut bifidobacterial and can do so in relatively low doses. The less actual prebiotic fiber ingested, the less chance of gastrointestinal upset.

Suggested retail price for 30 vegetarian capsules of FLORASSIST Immune Health is $26.

Suggested retail price for 60 strawberry-flavored FLORASSIST Prebiotic Chewable tablets is $20. For special pricing of both products visit or call 800-540-4440.
