    Overview:

    Mega Strength Multi-Flora Probiotic Complex with Acidophilus contains a unique combination of five key microorganisms designed to support and maintain the gastrointestinal tract’s microflora. The gastrointestinal tract is a complex system and host to a balance of symbiotic beneficial bacteria. Probiotics are live bacteria with health benefit. They have several supportive functions in the human gut. These beneficial bacteria help us digest food, digest lactose, protein, make vitamins, regulate bowel motility, keep the GI tract functioning optimally, and even help protect us from harmful pathogens.

    The gastrointestinal tract is home to approximately 60% of the body’s immune system. The intestinal micro flora is important for general intestinal health, the maturation of the immune system, and necessary to maintain a balanced inflammatory response.  The beneficial bacteria work to reinforce the barrier of the intestines which helps prevent pathogen and allergen entry. Some species of micro flora may contribute to the body’s requirements for certain vitamins, including several B vitamins.  Because a majority of our immune system is housed within the digestive tract, maintaining a healthy gut is essential for overall health and wellness. There are actually more bacterial cells in the human body than there are human cells!
     

    Research Indicates:

    • Naturally promotes healthy immune function
    • Supports a balanced inflammatory response
    • Promotes healthy intestinal function particularly against lactose intolerance and rotavirus-induced diarrhea in infants and children

    FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions - Probiotic

    • Since acidophilus products lose their potency at such a fast rate, how do I know there are actually live cultures left by the Best By date?

      With many acidophilus products on the market there is no guarantee of the amount of lactobacillus left at the Best By date because most only list the amount at time of manufacture. Our acidophilus products list both the amount at time of manufacture and the amount that is guaranteed by the Best By date.

    • Do your probiotic products need to be refrigerated?

      Refrigeration maintains and extends the potency or live cell count of the beneficial bacteria.


    • Why do probiotics need to be refrigerated?

      Probiotic bacteria have a natural die-off rate over time. They also die quicker in high temperatures. Thus, the cooler temperatures in a refrigerator reduce that natural die-off rate. Amber glass bottles also help as they lower the moisture and oxygen transfer rate in and out of the bottle.

    • Are your probiotic capsules sodium-free?

      Yes. None of our probiotic caps contain sodium.

    • Is Multi-Flora Probiotic suitable for all vegetarians?

      It is suitable for lactovegetarians. The cultures are grown on soy and milk. Because it comes in a vegetarian capsule, vegetarians who consume milk and soy can enjoy this product.

    • What are the five strains in Multi-Flora Probiotic?

      Probiotic Multi-Flora contains five strains consisting of:
      - Lactobacillus acidophilus (4 billion cells)
      - Lactobacillus lactis (500 million cells)
      - Lactobacillus reuteri (500 million cells)
      - Lactobacillus plantarum (2 billion cells)
      - Bifidobacterium bifidum (1 billion cells)

       

    • How does taking probiotic supplements differ from eating yogurt with probiotic cultures?

      See chart below:

      YOGURT

      DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS

      National Yogurt Association (NYA) is a trade organization in the U.S; they established their own criteria for live and active culture yogurt in conjunction with its Live & Active Culture seal program

      Our probiotic dietary supplements come from the leading probiotic suppliers in the world

      Refrigerated yogurt must contain >100 million cultures/ gm at the time of manufacture (frozen yogurt products must contain 10 million cultures/gm at the time of manufacture)

      Strains and number of organisms in products are based on research studies

      The NYA does not monitor the number of organisms; it is a voluntary program

      All EverLife probiotic supplements list both the number of live and active cultures at time of manufacture and guarantee an amount at the Best By date
