Our multi-strain probiotics come in two strengths:
• Multi-Flora ProBio = 4 billion organisms per capsule
• ProBiotic MAX = 20 billion organisms per capsule.
These specialist 8 strain practitioner-strength probiotic formulas have been specifically formulated for nutritionists, colon hydrotherapists and other natural health practitioners who treat digestive and intestinal disorders, such as dysbiosis, candida, bloating etc.
With their broad spectrum, 8 probiotic strains (encapsulated for acid resistance) at high concentration, these formulas will tackle most digestive and intestinal system disorders with ease.
ProBiotic MAX is beneficial for
Bloated stomach / wind
Dysbiosis (unbalanced bowel flora)
Bad body odour
Flatulence - excessive and overgrowth
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Leaky gut syndrome
When should probiotics be used?
Probiotic supplements are useful when the balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria in the bowel has been disrupted. Such an imbalance almost always occurs in the following situations:
• after use of antibiotics
• following illness
• during and after periods of heightened stress
• as we get older (and our digestive enzymes decrease in number)
• following travel to a foreign country
• for people who experience regular tummy upsets
• for people who regularly have an urgent need to use the toilet.
An imbalance of bowel flora can lead to many unpleasant symptoms, such as a bloated stomach, irregular bowel movements and a feeling of heaviness after eating. Probiotics are recommended for people who wish to ensure or maintain a favourable amount of the friendly bacteria in the digestive system.
Do Multi-Flora ProBio and ProBiotic MAX need to be refrigerated?
No. This is not necessary because the probiotic bacteria used in these products are specially coated during the manufacturing process to ensure that they remain stable at room temperature. This is important, because many probiotic products that are kept in the fridge are damaged by the continual opening and closing of the fridge door, which lets in moisture and damages the fragile bacteria.
Why are these multi-strain formulas more effective than a single strain product?
A single species probiotic is simply unlikely to deliver as many benefits as a multi-strain probiotic, which colonises and acts upon multiple locations within the body. There are literally hundreds of different species of good bacteria in our digestive system, so a multi-strain formula will work in more areas and also provide better protection against a wider scope of harmful bacteria.
Can Multi-Flora ProBio and ProBiotic MAX survive the high acidity of the stomach?
Yes. All of the strains within these products are micro-encapsulated, which means that they are protected and are able to reach their target location in the body in a viable state.
Can Multi-Flora ProBio and ProBiotic MAX capsules be pulled apart and the contents taken in a drink or on food?
Yes, if the food or drink in question is consumed within 12 hours, the probiotics’ effectiveness will not be affected.
