2 billion probiotics give you every day digestive relief

 

Probiotic Advantage® delivers 2 billion live bacteria through every inch of your digestive tract. The new patented BIO-tract® delivery system slowly releases the probiotics along both your small and large intestines to guarantee all day relief. Plus, BIO-tract keeps the delicate probiotic bacteria alive so they get to your intestines safely.

Many probiotic supplements contain just one or two strains of bacteria—giving you only partial coverage. But each Probiotic Advantage caplet gives you seven extremely hardy, live probiotic strains, all backed by clinical research to ensure complete coverage.

Plus, I've added prebiotics to Probiotic Advantage to help feed and strengthen these good bacteria. The prebiotics “supercharge” the probiotics, so the good bacteria crowd out the bad bacteria.

Enjoy all day comfortable, healthy digestion

 

Probiotics have always been a part of my core recommendations. I can't emphasize enough how important they are to your overall good health. You'll feel the difference in your digestion, your ability to eat dairy products, the regularity of your bowel movements, your immune health—and even your energy level. In short, everything will work better with just one tiny pill a day!

BIO-tract Delivery Technology

 

  • Many probiotics deteriorate due to stomach acid.
  • Some probiotics make their way to your small intestines.
  • Extra-Strength Probiotic Advantage delivers healthy bacteria to your entire digestive system—from your stomach to your small intestine to your large intestine.

You get guaranteed full coverage!

Scientific Support

 

  • Individuals with milk sensitivities are able to tolerate dairy which includes probiotics better than dairy lacking probiotics.1
  • It is believed that L. fermentum produces compounds and proteins that help inhibit the growth and adhesion of pathogens.2
  • Research found that supplementation with L. plantarum supports immune function in healthy adults.3
  • In a double blind placebo controlled study, patients taking L. acidophilus experienced significantly more relief from their gastrointestinal discomfort than did those taking placebo.4
  • Supplementation with probiotics including L. acidophilus and B. bifidum help modulate the response of the intestinal microflora to the effects of antibiotics.5
  • A meta-analysis of double blind human trials found that probiotic strains, including L. acidophilus, help to alleviate occasional diarrhea.6
