Life 9 is a Joydropper FAVORITE! It is THE top supplement that Joydroppers buy! Are you ready to dig deep this week to see why it’s so popular? ME TOO!
So who needs Life 9? In a nutshell, if you eat a standard American diet, have any stress, or any digestive issues, you probably need Life 9. Here are some more details about when taking a probiotic is SUPER important:

// If you have ever taken antibiotics.
Antibiotic means anti-life, which is the exact opposite of probiotic, which means pro-life. Antibiotics are designed to kill bacteria in the body, and they do not discriminate between the bad and the good. So if you have ever taken a round of antibiotics, consider taking a probiotic to reintroduce the healthy flora back into the body.

// Food Poisoning
If you recently have had food poisoning or have eaten something that just didn’t sit right, there is a good chance bad bacteria has made a home in your body. Taking a probiotic will fight off these bad guys and get your digestion and bowel movements back to normal.

// Digestive Disturbances
If your gut has not been functioning correctly and you are suffering from a condition of the digestive tract, consider using a probiotic supplement. Oftentimes the simple addition of these healthy bacteria can quell symptoms, and no further treatment is needed. Research has shown probiotics to be helpful for diarrhea, gas, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s and H. pylori infection.

// Skin Conditions
If you suffer from acne, eczema, rashes, hives, or psoriasis, it’s most likely due to poor digestion and an imbalance in gut bacteria. Start using probiotics while also cleaning up your diet.

// Mood Disorders
If your daily life is riddled with stress, anxiety, irritability and depression, it could be because your intestinal flora is out of whack. Start using probiotics to normalize the flora, which will improve the functioning of your neurotransmitters and therefore your mood.

// Weak Immunity
If you get sick from the flu every year, have maxed out your work sick days and seem to catch everything that goes around, then try probiotics. Probiotics have been clinically found to boost the immune system and strengthen the body’s defenses against illness. Healthy bacteria can train your immune system to distinguish between “foreign” microbes and those originating in your body, making probiotics the best front line against infection.

// Asthma & Allergies
Research has shown promise in the effects of probiotics in reducing symptom severity and medication use for asthma. Probiotics may also be helpful in reducing allergies, especially food allergies. Most often the root cause of food allergies is leaky gut, which can be improved by proper flora levels in the gut. Studies indicate that children with healthier gut flora have a reduced risk of developing allergies and asthma.

// Autism
New research suggests that probiotics may have therapeutic potential in autism spectrum disorder. They believe that gut bacteria may contribute to symptoms of Autism. By balancing the gut bacteria – reintroducing healthy probiotics – communicative, stereotypic, anxiety-like and sensorimotor behaviors were shown to decrease. While more research has to be done on the topic, probiotic supplementation for autism appears hopeful.

// Yeast Infections
If you suffer from recurring yeast infections or Candida, then this is a good indicator that there is an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the body. The best way to bring it back into balance is with probiotics. Probiotics, or good bacteria, crowd out the bad bacteria, helping to relieve the body of the symptoms attributed to the overgrowth.

*Pro Tip: Eliminate white sugar and significantly reduce natural sugars, and sugary carbohydrates. These foods are what bad bacteria feed on, so in order to expedite their elimination from the body, it is best to cut off their food source.*

Our gut is known as our second brain - it influences our mood and overall well being. Now that you know WHO needs Life 9, keep reading to deep dive more into how Life 9 supports the body!

Young Living offers a synergy of 9 different strains with 17 billion live active cultures in a delayed-release capsule to deliver the cultures directly to your intestines. Life 9 is designed to give you the greatest possible benefits. It has nine strains to give you the full spectrum support, but what is interesting is that the best time to take it is night before bed or a few hours after dinner on an empty stomach. You should take this without any other supplement. Once you swallow it, it goes to work. All those beautiful healthy bacteria helping support your beautiful gut! It is said that 85% of all our issues stem from the gut. 

You may take these every day or at least three to four times a week. This may also be used as a way to rapidly support your gut when you're feeling a dip in your immune system by consuming 5-6 at once right before bed. This is only to be done as needed and no more than once a month. Life 9 will help to regulate your bowel movements. If you take too many for too long you may experience diarrhea. When you're having one bowel movement per full meal per day that is the right consistency, not too soft and not too hard, this means your gut is working correctly. There are no essential oils in Life 9.

Let’s back up a little bit… What is a probiotic?

The bacteria in your body are said to outnumber your body’s cells at a 10-to-1 ratio. However, a recent study says that the ratio is closer to 1-to-1.

According to these estimates, you have 39–300 trillion bacteria living inside you. Whichever estimate is most accurate, it’s certainly a large number.

Much of these bacteria reside in your gut, and the majority are quite harmless. Some are helpful, and a small number can cause disease.
Having the right gut bacteria has been linked to numerous health benefits, including the following:
  • weight loss
  • improved digestion
  • enhanced immune function
  • healthier skin
  • reduced risk of some diseases

Probiotics, which are a certain type of friendly bacteria, provide health benefits when eaten.

They’re often taken as supplements that are supposed to help colonize your gut with good microorganisms.

Probiotics are the healthy or good bacteria in your gut. When you are sick, it usually means there is more bad bacteria than good bacteria.

How can you get probiotics?
→ Easily… with a daily probiotic supplement, like Life 9.
→ You can also eat fermented foods like miso, tempeh, kimchi, sauerkraut, and Kefir.
→ What about yogurt? Isn’t that a good source of probiotics??? Not necessarily. It's a marketing ploy. Some brands add a small amount of Lactobacillus acidophilus just so they can say so on the label. Plus, most of the yogurt you buy in the store is pasteurized to increase the shelf life, but pasteurization destroys all the benefits of the yogurt. If you do choose yogurt in the store, make sure the label says “live, active cultures.” And of course you want to choose dairy products that have not been produced with antibiotics or hormones. Oh, and you need to find a yogurt without added sugar - most yogurts are fulllllll of sugar! So see how it might be wayyyyyy easier to just take a daily Life 9?!?

(Another option would be Kidscents Mighty Pro, which contains broad-spectrum probiotics along with prebiotics and is great for kids and adults!) 

Life 9 doesn’t contain any essential oils so we will look at the ingredients it does contain and what each ingredient does.

  • Streptococcus thermophiles - breaks down lactose, supports the immune and digestive system
  • Bifidobacterium breve - Competes with other bacteria, breaks down foods that are considered non-digestible, ferments sugars, produces lactic and acetic acids
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum - produces natural antibiotics that kill bad bacteria. Supports immune function and digestion
  • Bifidobacterium longum - Aids in normal digestion and balance of the intestinal tract
  • Calcium carbonate - used as an antacid in gastric hyperacidity for temporary relief of indigestion and heartburn

Let’s recap what we’ve learned so far: Probiotics are essential to our bodies. They are the good bacteria found in our guts and support overall gut health and well being. Life 9 is a high potency probiotic that builds and restores intestinal health. Probiotics are important because of their positive effect on the gut and bowels. Many people do not realize that the gut is the source of health and vitality and where nutrients are absorbed in the bloodstream. It is also the command center of the immune system and eliminators of the waste products. If the gut and bowels are not working properly, optimal health is Impossible and the body is vulnerable to myriad conditions.
For the bowels to work properly, probiotics are necessary for every intestine function to prevent the proliferation of harmful bacteria.

We encounter too many things that can increase the need for probiotic supplementation such as taking drugs and antibiotics, drinking chlorinated water, consuming sugar, eating a low fiber diet, and undergoing stress.

Love Life 9 because I used to be very uncomfortable with irregularity with my bowels. I am so regular now after using life 9. If I forget to take it I know it the next morning! Total life changer for me. - M.J.

I have suffered from IBS with constipation most of my life, I am 58 years. Doctors would give this prescription that prescription. That either didn't help or make it worse. I didn't find find any true relief until I started taking Life 9. Now I don't go without it. - D.C.

Life 9 has been the greatest supplement I have ever used hands down! I have suffered from stomach and digestive problems for years, mainly lots of heartburn, g.e.r.d and having my gallbladder removed. Part of my issues may be inherited according to my past doctor, but I say most is caused from me being obese. (Yes I’m still working on that too) I have been on several prescribed medicines daily for 18+years. That is until I started using Life 9! After about 3 months of taking it daily I was able to start reducing my prescribed meds to every other day. It has been a couple of years now and my doctor gives me a prescription for 30 pills and they have lasted me a year!! I just have to take one if I get overwhelmed with the stomach acid occasionally. He even asked me what I was using because his wife suffers from heartburn and hates taking the prescribed meds. I won’t go without it!! - L.E.

Before starting this journey to improve my health, I had no idea that a bm once a week to week and a half was not normal. I have tried other probiotics from health food stores, but I didn't get the same results. 1 Life 9 every night has been a game changer. Occasionally I take 2 before bed if my diet has been crappy for a couple days in a row. - C.T.
