Three New Products
Microorganisms are everywhere. The can protect us or make us sick. The time has come to colonize our own microbes against this pathogenic invasion. It is time to put nature back to its original order and to employ the evolutionarily stronger probiotic bacteria— who have won the wars and battles against pathogens for thousands of years. We have excluded the probiotics from our arsenal for too long. In fact, we have unknowingly broken the backs of many of our probiotic colonies. Our antimicrobial lifestyles have knocked probiotics back a step and allowed the pathogens to get stronger. However, it’s not too late.
This program clarifies not only what probiotics are and do, but how they cooperate with our immune system to combat a multitude of infections & diseases. Learn about: the history of probiotics; what are prebiotics; what to look for on the supplement label; how to fine the best products; how foods can be great probiotics; how to take probiotics & finally how our health should improve when taking probiotics.

Comparison of Common Probiotic Products
Allergen Note from ConsumerLab.com: Probiotics that contain lactose fermenting bacteria (e.g., Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria) are typically grown on media containing milk-derived nutrients. While the label of this product does not indicate milk as an allergen, if you have a milk allergy, it may be prudent to assume that any lactose fermenting probiotic, as found in this product, can potentially contain residual milk proteins, even if it claims to be free of milk or dairy.
