Stomach Acid Protection — Unprotected forms of probiotics (powders, foods, plain capsules) entering the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach can experience losses of viable organisms of up to 100%. Studies show that it is highly unlikely that an unprotected probiotic supplement will ever deliver more than 5 to 10% of its viable payload past the stomach successfully.
Our probiotic caplets function by forming a gel layer around the tablet (or fragments thereof) when the outermost surface is moistened by fluids in the stomach (see cross-section illustration). This layer forms a semi-permeable pH-controlled protective layer between harsh (low pH) stomach fluids and the sensitive probiotic organisms contained in the drier core of the tablet. As the tablet moves past the stomach into the higher pH of the duodenum and below, the tablet releases probiotic organisms in a viable state to flourish and colonize successfully in the intestinal tract.
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) — All of our probiotic cultures are naturally derived isolates, without genetic modifications (non-GMO). The standard carrier used in non-GMO identity preserved corn maltodextrin. Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from starch and is usually found as a creamy-white hygroscopic powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose.
BSE — No bovine tissue ingredients or derivatives are used in the manufacture of these probiotics.
Gamma — Our probiotics have not been irradiated and are gamma free.
Heavy Metal — Representative samples of the raw materials and cultures used to produce our probiotics have been tested by the USP28 <231> procedure and contain less than 1 ppm heavy metals.
Contains Milk — This product may contain residual trace amounts of milk proteins from the fermentation process.
Heat During Tableting — The probiotics are checked after the tableting process to ensure that the client receives the listed amount of life organisms.
Children — There are no contraindications for children. Suggested age is starting at 5.
Handling Instructions — Refrigeration is necessary to prolong shelf live of live organisms.
Shelf Life — 18 months from blend date. Information is posted on bottom of bottle.
Allergen — This product does not contain, nor has it been processed with any of the following materials: Soy, Wheat, Tree nuts, Peanuts, Eggs, Fish, Crustacean Shellfish, Bee Pollen, or Gluten. Although our fermentation media contains dairy constituents, representative samples of the carriers and cultures used have tested negative (<2.5 ppm) for dairy allergen protein.
