- Product Q&A
We want to make sure you are getting a potent product right up until the expiry date. That’s why each capsule contains 125 billion at the time of manufacturing. This overage ensures we remain at label claim or better at expiry.
We recommend going with a higher CFU during states of high stress, digestive complaints, or during times when antibiotics are used, but beyond that, do what feels best for you! Some people feel great taking 15 billion, while others like to “go big” with the 50 billion.
The NNHPD monograph on probiotics requires labelling to include directions to take probiotics 2-3 hours before or after taking antibiotics, as you see on our packaging.
If you have IBS, we recommend that you consult with your health care practitioner to determine if this product is suitable for you.
If you have SIBO, we recommend that you consult with your health care practitioner to determine if this product is suitable for you.
Yes, it is true that heat can damage probiotics, and actually so can humidity, so let’s start there. Instead of packaging our probiotics in a bottle, which would expose them to humidity each time it’s opened, we thoughtfully chose blister packs. Blister packs are an excellent way to keep moisture and humidity away from probiotic capsules. But in order to ensure that the capsules aren’t damaged, the blistering process must be done carefully.
We use heat to create the cavities that the capsules will eventually be placed in, but we allow the cavities to cool to room temperature before adding the capsules.
Once the capsules are nestled into the cavities, we seal them in with aluminum. During this process, we ensure that the temperature never rises above 30 degrees Celsius. Plus, with blistering occurring at the rate of 200 cards/minute, any thermal transfer is not possible.
Finally, we conduct our quality analysis after the capsules have been put in the blister packaging. For example, our advanced gut health 50 Billion is tested after the blistering process – and has no less than 125 Billion active cells at the time of manufacture.
We’re totally confident that advanced gut health probiotic delivers the CFU that we promise – because we’ve taken the appropriate steps during manufacture, and because we’ve tested the final product AFTER it’s been packaged.Probiotics are best taken a couple of hours away from food. This is because when you eat, your stomach acid increases, making it a pretty tough environment for probiotic capsules. So it’s best to take your probiotic in between meals, when you know that your stomach acid is not at its peak. This allows the capsule to better protect the living bacteria that, if exposed to stomach acid, would be killed. In experimental studies, advanced gut health probiotic was found to deliver up to 10x the bacteria to the gut when taken on an empty stomach.
Recommended use: For a daily source of probiotics to support and balance your gut†. Also to rebuild gut flora for overall gastrointestinal health during gut distress.†
