Easy-to-swallow probiotic beadlet for adults 50+

  • High Bifidobacteria probiotic with Advanced Bead-Lock Technology
  • 2 billion live bacteria provide all-day comfort

  • Helps relieve flatulence and uncomfortable gas
  • Supports immune health

It’s not uncommon for Bifidobacteria, the most common bacteria in your large intestine, and Lactobacillus, the most predominant bacteria in your small intestine to decrease as we age. Stress, antibiotics, and a diet low in fruits, vegetables, and fermented foods can also cause your Bifidobacteria levels to plummet. And as you age, your digestive system needs more of these beneficial bacteria to work properly.

Probiotic Advantage Bifido Beadlet 50+ Customer Survey results

Probiotic Advantage® Bifido Beadlet 50+™ contains a very specific blend of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus bacteria. Many probiotic brands include just small amounts of Bifidobacteria—if they include them at all. What’s more, they don’t use the scientifically studied numbered strains. I carefully selected the 6 scientifically studied Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus strains in Probiotic Advantage Bifido Beadlet 50+ that will help keep your digestive system running smoothly.

Even better, this probiotic comes in a tiny, easy-to-swallow “beadlet” you take just once a day. And breakthrough Advanced Bead-Lock™ Technology guarantees the delivery of 2 billion LIVE bacteria for all-day comfort.

Probiotic Advantage Bifido Beadlet Bead-lock technology

Taking just 1 of these tiny beadlets each morning can help relieve your digestive concerns—gas, bloating, occasional constipation, and occasional diarrhea.

Science and Quality

B. longum BB-536

  • In a controlled crossover trial, 18 seniors who supplemented with BB-536 in cultured milk saw an increase in the frequency and regularity of stools.1
  • In a placebo-controlled crossover trial BB-536 showed a significant increase in defecation frequency and improvement in fecal characteristics.2
  • Elderly patients administered B. longum showed it helped support immune function for 20 weeks after discontinuing supplementation.3

B. lactis BI-04

  • In vitro studies have shown Bl-04 to be resistant to low pH conditions and survive the presence of bile at concentrations present in the duodenum. The ability to tolerate the highly acidic conditions in the stomach and concentrations of bile salts found in the small intestine are important for survival in the GI tract.
  • Bl-04 produces L(+)-lactic acid. Lactic acid is an important metabolic end product of the fermentation process. Lactic acid has two optical isomers: L(+)-lactic acid and D(-)-lactic acid. L(+)-lactic acid is important for the generation of energy under anaerobic conditions.

B. infantis M-63

  • Supplementation with B. infantis decreased discomfort, bloating, and bowel movement difficulty.4

L. acidophilus NCFM®

  • In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, patients taking L. acidophilus experienced significantly more relief from their gastrointestinal discomfort than did those taking placebo.5
  • Supplementation with probiotics including L. acidophilus and B. Bifidum help modulate the response of the intestinal microflora to the effects of antibiotics.6
  • A meta-analysis of double-blind human trials found that probiotic strains, including L. acidophilus, help to alleviate occasional diarrhea.7

L. plantarum Lp-115

  • Research found that supplementation with L. plantarum supports immune function in healthy adults. 8

L. rhamnosus Lr-32

  • A review of probiotic research states that Americans travelling from New York City to developing countries and taking L. rhamnosus had a 3.9% rate of diarrhea, compared to 7.4% for those not taking the probiotic.9
  • A review of probiotic research concluded that L. rhamnosus may help support vaginal and urinary health.10
