1. What is a Probiotic?
a. Probiotics are live good bacteria and yeast that help support a balanced gut flora in the GI tract.
2. How does it work?
a. The GI tract has both “good” and “bad” bacteria naturally; however the current American diet, stress, some disease states and living conditions can all cause an imbalance of the gut flora. Research has shown that obesity in itself can also create an imbalance of gut flora. By taking a probiotic, you replace the GI tract with good bacteria providing a better balance of bacteria.

4. Who should take a Probiotics?
a. All people can take a probiotics, however this probiotic is designed for adults.
5. What makes this product better than what is in the stores?
a. This product contains two strains of bacteria where many probiotics found in stores and in yogurt contain only one strain. It is also time released, to help the probiotics survive the acidity of the stomach and truly be delivered to the gut. The probiotics in these capsules are freeze-dried and therefore do not require refrigeration. Using freeze-dried probiotics increases the shelf-life of the strains.
6. What is a CFU?
a. Probiotics are measured in CFUs. CFU stands for “colony forming units” and is used to quantify how many bacteria in probiotics are capable of dividing and forming colonies. We know that probiotics bacteria are alive and active if they are able to divide and form these colonies.
7. Is this product all natural?
a. The bacteria (Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Lactobacillus Bifidus) are natural; however other ingredients are not 100% natural.
8. What is the shelf-life of this product?
a. 24 months
