HOWARU® Protect Senior

Supporting the immune health of seniors and keeping their gut “young”

Gut accounts for 70% of our immune system. It is crucial to human health, especially for seniors. As people age, changes in the gut microbiota composition, including loss of beneficial bifidobacteria, take place and are associated with a decline in immune functions. This can lead to microbial imbalance or dysbiosis, and overall poorer health. Seniors typically experience declining immune functions, increased susceptibility to infections, decreased vaccine responses and discomfort linked to slow colonic transit time. Therefore, having a “young” gut microbiota is essential to maintaining good health for seniors.

HOWARU® Protect Senior (Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™) is a unique proprietary probiotic formulation designed to provide immune enhancement for aging adults. Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™ is supported by a long list of successful clinical studies on the health of the immune system of seniors, and is regarded as a natural, safe and efficacious way to staying healthy. Scientific studies showed benefits delivered starting from 5B CFU of Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™.

Benefits of HOWARU® Protect Senior are proven.
