Features

With the burgeoning research into the benefits of probiotics, Ultimate Multi Probiotic provides a powerful multi strain probiotic formula based on the latest studies. 
  
This formula has a 12 strain blend with a minimum of 12 billion live cells at expiry date (18 billion live cells per capsule at time of manufacture). These 12 strains include 8 lactobacilli species and one lactococcus species for the ultimate health of the full length of the small intestine as well as 3 bifidobacteria species for the ultimate health of the complete length of the large intestine. Different species in a single formula more closely approximates the normal composition of intestinal flora. As probiotic properties are different from one strain to the other, each strain will contribute specific inhibitive functions against pathogenic or putrefactive bacteria.
 
Multi strain probiotic formulations are also recommended because each person's intestinal flora has a unique bacterial community (very similar to fingerprints), therefore each person will react differently to the absorption of the same probiotic strain. For some people L. acidophilus might be most effective while for others L. rhamnosus. L. casei might adapt more easily to their intestinal flora. 

Each strain in the Ultimate Multi Probiotic has undergone a stringent selection process (e.g. Our L. acidophilus was chosen after studying the probiotic properties of 95 different L. acidophilus strains.) Each strain has been carefully selected for natural gastric resistance. Testing each strain shows no loss of bacteria after 3 hours at 37C in gastric solutions at pH3/pH4. The natural pH of an empty stomach is 1.5. After eating stomach's pH goes up to 5-6. This is critical, as these strains will survive the stomach's acidity without enteric coating and reach the intestines at full potency.
 
Each strain has been selected for ability to grow in the presence of high bile levels. High growth in the presence of bile also maximizes probiotic potency. Antibiotic compatibility is also important. Strains are chosen so they do not interfere with the effectiveness of antibiotics but still protect from their adverse effects.
 
Probiotics also have been selected for established enzymatic activities. Lactic acid bacteria induce a variety of enzymatic activities that generate multiple additional health benefits. By doing so they may help to prevent several conditions: lactose intolerance, infectious diseases, urogenital and vaginal diseases and immune system deficiencies.

Dosage

Take 1 to 3 capsules daily on a full stomach or as directed by a health care practitioner.

Contraindications

  • If taking antibiotics, take probiotics two hours before or two hours after the antibiotics are taken. Continue to use probiotics long after the antibiotics are finished.
  • The good news is that use of the Ultimate Multi Probiotic formula can prevent many infections before they start, reducing the need for antibiotics.
  • All these strains have been shown to be exceedingly safe.
  • However, if gastrointestinal symptoms are severe or do not abate, always consult your health practitioner.
  • An in vivo clinical study on adults with orally administered bifidobacteria and lactobacilli at a daily dosage of 450 billion for 8 weeks, showed no side effects.
  • Based on the available data and considering that a person's natural intestinal flora is composed of over 400 species of bacteria and contains over 100,000 billion microorganisms, there is no risk in taking highly concentrated probiotics.

Additional Information

Pregnancy and Nursing: Considered safe during pregnancy and lactation. However, we strongly suggest that any pregnant woman with an active urogenital infection always check with her health care practitioner and not self-medicate.
