Our probiotic supplement provides you with the all-important L. acidophilus to maintain digestive health, plus the equally-important Bifidobacteria, which may help protect your colon. This formula also has L. salivarius (for digestion), L. rhamnosus (to stimulate immunity), L. plantarum (to maintain the system against harmful bacteria), and fructo-oligosaccharides (to enhance beneficial bacteria growth). And our probiotic supplement is now stabilized to maintain full potency for 18 months at room temperature--even longer when refrigerated.*
Take 1-3 capsules per day, on an empty stomach. Use the higher doses in the beginning. After 3-4 weeks, once the beneficial bacteria have begun to establish themselves in your intestinal tract, you can cut back to 1 capsule a day.
If you have any discomfort or allergic reactions (the result of the die-off of the bad bacteria in your intestinal tract), cut back to 1 capsule (or 1/2 or 1/4) a day as necessary. Then slowly increase.
These probiotic supplements can be taken while using our colon cleansing products. Just be sure to take between doses of Corrective and Detox rather than at the same time.
If you're ever exposed to a "round" of antibiotics, or forced to drink chlorinated water for a few days, you will need to start over and once again rebuild your intestinal flora from scratch by using the higher dosage for several weeks.
Notes on Probiotics
We manufacture our probiotic supplements in small batches and ship the bottles from our manufacturing facility to our fulfillment facility on ice and in special containers. In our fulfillment facility, we continue to store the product on ice -- to ensure that it is at maximum potency on the day we ship it to you. And although our probiotics are now stabilized to maintain potency for 18 months when stored at room temperature, we highly recommend using Express delivery when possible for any order that contains the Probiotic supplements during the warmer months (generally, June 1 - Oct 1) to maintain that potency.
Probiotics Frequently Asked Questions
Do you use magnesium stearate in any of your products?
We do not use magnesium stearate. We use vegetable sourced stearic acid. Some people claim they are identical. They are not. The simplest difference to understand is that magnesium stearate contains magnesium (Mg(C18H35O2)2). Vegetable stearate does not (C18H36O2). It is required as a flow agent whenever you send a powder with any tendency to stick through either a tableting or encapsulation machine. Otherwise the powder gums up the works and jams the equipment. Stearic acid is an essential saturated fatty acid that is found in all vegetable, seed, nut, and animal oils. Although stearic acid can be derived from several sources, including bovine, the most common source in better quality nutritional supplements is vegetable stearic acid primarily from coconut and palm oils. Incidentally, the amount of stearic acid in a typical tablet or capsule is much less than what you'll find in a salad with olive oil and vinegar dressing. (Olive oil is a source of stearic acid.)
Since the Probiotics and pHi-Zymes™ are both to be taken on an empty stomach, is it ok to take them together?
It's probably best to take them separately. We asked Jon Barron about this, and he said that he takes his evening dose of pHi-Zymes™ about a half hour before bed on an empty stomach. He then takes his Probiotics a half hour later, just before bed. That allows the pHi-Zymes™ time to clear the stomach before the Probiotics enter.
I am considering using probiotics. I've read that unless they are encapsulated in beadlets, the probiotics may not survive the trip to the intestines because of stomach acids. Is that the case?
If probiotics were destroyed unless encapsulated, then for all the centuries people who ate probiotic rich foods such as yogurt and cabbage would have received no benefit since those probiotics would have been destroyed too. But we know that's not true and that eating probiotic rich foods builds beneficial bacteria throughout the intestinal tract. Bottom line: probiotics make it through the stomach quite nicely.
How do you ensure the potency of your probiotics?
We manufacture our Probiotics in small batches and the bottles are shipped on ice in special containers. Once they arrive at our fulfillment center, the bottles are put in a freezer until they're shipped out to ensure that they are at maximum potency on the day we ship it to you. We highly recommend using Express delivery when possible for any order that contains the Probiotics during the warmer months (generally, June 1 -- October 1) to maintain that potency. In non summer months, the few days in transport will not significantly affect potency as long as you refrigerate the product upon receiving it.
Do you have clinical trials to substantiate that your Probiotic Formula will survive stomach acid?
No clinical trials needed. Despite claims by some manufacturers, probiotics have survived stomach acid for millennia. How else did people receive the benefit of eating yogurt, sauerkraut, and other fermented food before there were probiotic supplements?
Expiration dates have nothing to do with product safety. The dates allow for a substantial margin for products in terms of efficacy. That margin varies depending on the type of product, and depending on how the product is stored. Probiotics have the shortest margin and should be consumed within 30 days of the expiration date, 60 days if kept refrigerated.
Can I use probiotic supplements for children between the ages of 5 and 7, particularly after they have had antibiotics?
You would want to check with your pediatrician.

As you will gather from Chapter 4, there is nothing unnatural about probiotics in children. When supplementing with probiotic supplements, you might want to start using 1/4 of the recommended dose and build slowly. Also, you may need to take the probiotic out of the capsule if the children have a problem swallowing capsules.
Do the probiotics contain dairy?
No, the probiotics do not contain any dairy.

Below you will find a list and description of all of the ingredients featured in this health supplement.
L. acidophilus resides primarily in the small intestine and produces a number of powerful antimicrobial compounds in the gut (including acidolin, acidolphilin, lactocidin, and bacteriocin). These compounds can inhibit the growth and toxin producing capabilities of some 23 known disease-causing pathogens (including campylobacter, listeria, and staphylococci), as well as reduce tumor growth and effectively neutralize or inhibit carcinogenic substances. It's also important to note that L. acidophilus is the primary beneficial bacteria in the vaginal tract. When the presence of the acidophilus is compromised, this allows the bad guys such as Gardnerella vaginalis or E. coli or Chlamydia to take over.
Many researchers believe that declining levels of bifidus, or bifidobacteria, in the large intestine actually mark the eventual onset of chronic degenerative disease. Bifidobacteria benefit the body in a number of ways. They (1) consume old fecal matter; (2) protect against the formation of liver, colon, and mammary gland tumors. And in addition to all of that, (3) bifidobacteria are substantial producers of a range of important B vitamins.
Thermophilus is commonly used to manufacture yogurt. Research indicates that the high level of lactase enzyme activity of Streptococcus thermophilus makes it the most effective probiotic for improving lactose digestion in the intestinal tract. Other research suggests that it can improve the nutritional value of foods by making their micronutrients more readily available to the human body.
L. salivarius helps digest foods in the intestinal tract and makes vital nutrients more assimilable. It also works to eat away encrusted fecal matter throughout the entire colon; it helps repair the intestinal tract by providing needed enzymes and essential nutrients; and it adheres to the intestinal wall, thereby forming a living matrix that helps protect the mucosal lining to optimize digestive health.
Malt diastase, or maltase, digests complex and simple sugars. Maltase also breaks down unused glycogen in muscle tissue. Glycogen is a thick, sticky substance that is converted from sugars and starches and is stored in your muscle cells for future use. If stored glycogen continues to build up in the muscle tissues, it leads to progressive muscle weakness and degeneration.
L. plantarum has the ability to eliminate thousands of species of pathogenic bacteria. Plantarum also has extremely high adherence potential for epithelial tissue and seems to favor colonizing the same areas of the intestinal tract that E. coli prefers-in effect, serving to crowd E. coli out of the body. At one time, plantarum was a major part of our diets (found in sourdough bread, sauerkraut, etc.), but is now virtually nowhere to be found, which may be a contributing factor in the rise of digestive disorders.
L. rhamnosus is a powerful immune stimulator. It can increase the natural killing activity of spleen cells, which may help to prevent tumor formation. It boosts the ability of the body to destroy foreign invaders and other harmful matter by three times normal activity; and rhamnosus has been shown to increase circulating antibody levels by six to eight times.
Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are found in many vegetables and consist of short chains of fructose molecules. Since FOS can be only partially digested by humans, the undigested portion serves as food for "friendly" bacteria, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species. Clinical studies have shown that probiotic supplements with FOS can increase the number of these friendly bacteria in the colon while simultaneously reducing the population of harmful bacteria. For some of these beneficial bacteria, such as the Bifidus, FOS can increase their effectiveness by a factor of 1,000 times or more!! Other benefits noted with FOS supplementation include increased production of beneficial short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate, increased absorption of calcium and magnesium, and improved elimination of toxic compounds.
