Probiotic 50B (soy and dairy free)
Probiotic 50B provides 50 billion CFU per serving of the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Bifidobacterium longum and Bifidobacterium lactis. This formula is offered in acidresistant capsules with pH targeted release for maximal probiotic viability. This blend of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria is designed to promote healthy intestinal ecology to support gastrointestinal and immune health.
G.I. Health: Probiotics have been shown to promote healthy cytokine production in the colon and maintain healthy G.I. barrier function, in part by supporting intestinal epithelial integrity. Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora, support healthy yeast balance, and promote G.I. comfort.*
Immune Cell Function: Clinical studies indicate that Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria supplementation supports healthy immune response and inflammatory balance. Probiotics may enhance B cell, T cell and NK cell function, phagocytic capacity and activity, and healthy cytokine production.
Probiotic 50B is offered in acid-resistant capsules with pH targeted release. These capsules are designed to resist disintegration in an acidic environment (i.e. stomach) and dissolve in more alkaline environments (i.e. small and large intestine). This technology helps to protect the organisms from stomach acid, delivering the maximal viable organisms to the G.I. tract.
Lactobacillus plantarum (Lp-115), Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14), Lactobacillus rhamnosus (Lr-32), Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04) and Bifidobacterium longum (Bl-05) are grown on a dairy-free soy-free medium. Pure Encapsulations probiotic products contain a unique form of rice starch produced through a natural enzymatic process. This proprietary starch has been extensively tested and is added to protect the viability of the probiotic organisms. Gellan gum is derived from Pseudomonas elodea.
Adults, Adolescents and Children (6 years and older): Take 2 capsules daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Take at least 2-3 hours before or after taking antibiotics.
