VEGAN PROBIOTIC with FOS Prebiotics
We walk and jog. We go to the gym. We watch what we eat. We watch our stress level. All in the name of “Improved Health.” Our heart, muscles, bones and joints…we watch over them like a newborn. But how many of us think of our gut? Well, other than when we get the Bathroom Blues. Our gut—filled with trillions of bacteria—is probably the least paid-attention-to organ in our body, yet it is one of the most important for good health. Bacteria line our intestines to help digest our food. During digestion, some of these bacteria help synthesize vitamins, send signals to the immune system, produce lactic acid that can help make conditions unsuitable for bad bacteria and, get involved in other potential health functions that scientists are studying on an ongoing basis.*

STABILITY AT ROOM TEMPERATURE
When it comes to probiotic products one of the major challenges is that many bacteria strains are very sensitive to heat and some even have to be refrigerated to preserve the bacterial integrity and quantity. The special Bacillus Coagulans strain used in our product does not have to be refrigerated and is very stable at room temperature. In fact this strain of Bacillus Coagulans tolerates high temperatures so well that it was lab tested in baking conditions (i.e. 210 °F up to 30 minutes) and less than 5% loss in bacterial count was observed. Although we do not recommend exposing the product to high temperatures to ensure best freshness, quality and labeled potency we still wanted to share this information to point out the tough nature of this particular Bacillus Coagulans strain. Please remember not all probiotics are equal.*

HIGH SURVIVAL RATE IN ACIDITY
Not all strains of Bacillus coagulans are considered valuable because only some of them are able to survive through the acidity of the stomach at high levels, survive in bile salts and, grow and form colonies in the intestines. The special strain used in our product -thanks to its very tough outer shell- is highly resilient to the harsh conditions of the digestive tract and has a high survival rate that enables it to colonize the gut. Unlike some other probiotic bacteria sold on the market that largely die in the stomach acid this one does not require the use of expensive enteric coated capsules, offering significant cost savings for you.*

NOT GROWN ON DAIRY
Did you know that some so called "dairy free" probiotics are actually grown on dairy based growth medium? Since the dairy is later removed from the finished product by purification they can call it "dairy free" but this is not vegan suitable per Vegan Society. Our probiotic strain is grown on non-animal, non-dairy growth medium making it truly vegan.

SUPPLEMENTED WITH PREBIOTICS
100 mg of Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are added to each capsule as prebiotics. This sciencey, tongue-twisting word is a type of prebiotic that helps probiotics multiply and grow stronger in your gut. Think of prebiotics as sort of like fertilizer for probiotics and, they could help probiotics outnumber the bad bacteria that’s laying wake to negatively affect the balance of the intestinal flora.(4)*
