This high-potency probiotic supplement provides a combination of 12 different strains of beneficial bacteria important to intestinal health and well-being. Probiotic supplements contain live, “friendly” bacteria and/or yeast that promote proper digestion, support immune system function, aid in production of vitamins, and defend
against potentially harmful bacteria. Normally, the human gastrointestinal tract is populated by hundreds of different strains of bacterial microflora important for healthy gastrointestinal function. However, modern Western diets lack the beneficial bacteria that are as important to health as any required vitamin or nutrient. Stress, disease, aging, exposure to toxins, or use of antibiotics and certain medications can reduce the numbers of beneficial bacteria and set the stage for digestive disorders, impaired immune function, increased allergic sensitivity, infection, and inflammation.
The probiotic species in this product help replenish and maintain the essential gastrointestinal microflora missing from the diet or disrupted by antibiotic therapy or other medications.
This formulation contains:
• A synergistic blend of 12 probiotic species: Many of the positive attributes of probiotics are species and strain dependent. Thus, taking just one or two strains may not be enough. The 12 safe, well-studied probiotic lactic acid bacteria provide a broad-spectrum of benefits that help restore intestinal microbalance more
effectively compared to single strain formulas. Six colonizing Lactobacillus strains important for the small intestine, four colonizing Bifidobacterium strains that normally reside in the gastrointestinal tract, and two beneficial transient bacteria used as starter cultures in yogurt, provide benefit thoughout the GI tract.
• Protective delivery system: To be effective, the living organisms in probiotics must survive exposure to stomach acids as they travel to the small intestine and colon. This product utilizes a proprietary technology that protect probiotics against destruction by harsh gastric conditions, resulting in significantly more live
microorganisms delivered to the small intestine than unprotected probiotic formulations.
• Hypoallergenic ingredients: Probiotics used in this formulation are cultured on a proprietary vegetable-based growth media. This product is free of the following common allergens: milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans. Contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Inulin, a dietary fiber derived from chicory root, is used as a base ingredient in place of corn- or wheatderived maltodextrin, often used in other probiotic supplements.
This product can be used by children or adults as a daily supplement to support gastrointestinal function and provide probiotic support for people with intestinal dysbiosis, increased intestinal permeability (“leaky gut”), viral and bacterial gastro-enteritis, diarrhea, constipation, food allergies, sinusitis, eczema, yeast vaginitis, vaginal dysbiosis, or recurrent urinary tract infections. Long-term probiotic supplementation is vital to the maintenance of normal intestinal microflora.
Suggested Use: 1 capsule daily with food. If using
medications known to adversely affect the intestinal microflora
such as antibiotics, take this product several hours before or
after their use.
