Hälsa Targeted Probiotics Developed For Your Individual Needs
A decade studying human microbiome led Hälsa scientists to discover a link between certain types of bacterial strains and some of the most common health issues. Their research shows that individuals with digestive, weight or skin issues, or with a weakened immune system, have a lowered proportion of a specific type of beneficial bacteria in their bodies.
The latest research also shows that a diversified gut microbiota could help speed up recovery from Covid-19.
Hälsa Pro Lean is a combination of patented Bifidobacterium lactis BPL1 and resistant fiber.
Clinical studies have shown the B. lactis BPL1 Bifidobacterium strain to reduce the percentage of visceral fat in the body. Resistant fiber moves undigested into the colon, where it becomes food for useful bacteria and increases the feeling of satiety. See research below.
1 sachet (4.2 g) contains 10,000 million live bacteria.
Pro Immunity 50+
The proportion of health-promoting Bifidobacteria in the gut decreases with age: Babies under the age of one have 80% of Bifidobacteria, while adults over 50 have only about 10%.
Luckily, the abundance of good bacteria can be restored. Hälsa Pro Immunity 50+ was specifically developed to add the right combination of Bifidobacteria to our bodies. Pro Immunity 50+ powder is a combination of three Bifidobacteria strains: Bifidobacaterium lactis BLC1, Bifidobacterium breve Bbr8, B. Bifidum SP and Lactobacillus rhamnosus SP1.
1 sachet (2 g) contains 4,000 million live bacteria.
Healthy skin starts from inside. Hälsa researchers have linked the most common skin problems with a lowered count of certain bifido- and lactobacilli strain in the gut.
Pro Skin is a combination of three clinically studied bacterial strains that help the skin by improving gut health: Bifidobacterium longum 7347, Bifidobacterium lactis 8145, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus 8361.
In a healthy gut, beneficial bacteria prevent inflammation locally through the immune system. In inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s disease, IBD, and celiac disease, clinical research has shown the gut microbiome to be abnormal. The number of bacteria and the diversity of the microbiome has decreased, and the permeability of the gut and the villi has been damaged.
Hälsa Pro Gut probiotic powder is a combination of two selected bacterial strains: Lactobacillus rhamnosus SP1 and Bifidobacterium lactis BLC1. Gentle and restorative to the gut flora this combination is beneficial for everyone, especially those with a sensitive stomach or sensitivity to gluten.
A clinical study comparing the gut microbiome profiles of 50 overweight adults (BMI greater than 26) showed a lower proportion of Bifidobacteria compared to clostridia than in 320 normal weight adults (BMI 18–25).

Increasing Bifidobacterium lactis BLP1, the patented bacteria in Hälsa Pro Lean, resulted in a significant reduction of BMI and smaller waist (by 0.5–1 inches).

THE EFFECT OF B. LACTIS BPL1 TO THE ACCUMULATION VISCERAL FAT
The clinical study included 135 adults (average age 42). Subjects used B. lactis BPL1 or placebo products for 3 months. The Bifidobacteria product significantly reduced the proportion of visceral fat and BMI (body mass index). (Pedret A et al 2018. Int J. Obesity)
Resistant fiber in Hälsa Pro Lean travels through the digestive system without breaking down. According to studies, the amount of short-chain fatty acids increases with resistant fiber, which affects the acidity and functioning of the gut. Fatty acids have also been shown to produce a feeling of satiety.
