Description
  • Improves regularity & digestive health
  • Supports immune health
  • 2 grams of dietary fiber per serving
  • Lactose free
Probiotics work to keep a healthy balance of intestinal flora by reducing the amount of harmful bacteria in the digestive tract and replenishing and maintain beneficial, "friendly" bacteria. Depletion of beneficial bacteria can occur as a result of poor diet, taking certain antibiotics, stress, food poisoning, travelers' diarrhea, or poor overall digestive health. Replenishing beneficial bacteria with priobiotics helps to promote healthy digestion and support natural resistance.

Each Ultra Probiotic Complex Soft Chew provides 5 billion live and active cultures of Bacillus Coagulans to provide daily replenishment of healthy bacteria in your digestive tract, along with dietary fiber which aids in eliminating unwanted toxins from the body.

Health Notes

Probiotics

Probiotics
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

              I tried another brand of Probiotics before this and noticed a difference but not enough to pay what they were asking for. Then I went online and found these and decided to give them and try and they are awesome! I was taking anti-acid daily, now I maybe take them once a week, and any bathroom problems I was having are gone.

                Would give 5 stars as this product is in the top 3 of the most effective probiotics my husband and I have tried but it is very expensive, even with promotions.

                It keeps our digestive and intestinal systems working and seems to be helping with our immunity building efforts. Easy to take and tastes great.

                My husband swears by them and they work great for me. I had a gastric sleeve performed May 2012 and with proper diet, nutrition and exercise, have lost over 90 pounds and am not far from my goal. This product helps me eliminate toxins daily
                which is often a challenge post bariatric surgery.
