Probiota 12 Capsules by Seeking Health provides 50 billion CFUs of beneficial microorganisms per serving to support a healthy digestive system. This synergistic blend of 12 probiotic species, including both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains, may help to repopulate beneficial microflora in the gut while supporting a healthy immune system and digestive process. This supplement includes a prebiotic base to provide nourishment for the beneficial bacteria and uses a proprietary polysaccharide complex to help protect the viable organisms as they make their way through the upper digestive tract.*
Probiotic formulas combining multiple species, such as Probiota 12, are thought to provide more comprehensive support for the complex microbiome of the human gut than single-species products. Each species occupies a specific 'niche', with some preferring conditions in the small intestine while others may thrive in the colon, genitourinary tract, or elsewhere in the body. While some probiotic species are known to colonise the human digestive tract, others are transient, or present in the intestines only when consumed regularly as part of the diet. Probiota 12 includes both colonising and transient strains, including Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, which are thought to contribute to some of the health-promoting properties of cultured yoghurt.*
It is sometimes said that immune health begins in the gut. Special tissues in the gut make up more than 60% of the body's overall immune support. The 12 species of probiotic bacteria in Probiota 12 produce lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other fermentation products that may help support the body's natural defences against harmful bacteria, yeast and viruses. These probiotic species may also help support the immune system by competing with unwanted or harmful bacteria for nutrients and space for colonisation. They also produce short-chain fatty acids (acetate, propionate, and butyrate) that help provide nourishment for cells in the colon.*
For those requiring intensive probiotic support or who have trouble swallowing capsules, consider our Probiota 12 Powder, providing 200+ billion beneficial microorganisms per half-teaspoon.*
Please Note: Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use.
**STORAGE & SHIPPING:
Refrigerate and keep tightly closed to maintain product potency. The probiotics in Seeking Health's Probiota probiotics are freeze-dried to increase shelf life. These products will maintain or exceed label potency through the expiration date printed on each bottle if kept refrigerated. If kept at average room temperature, Probiota products will remain potent for 4-6 months. At higher temperatures (86 F), they will maintain potency for 1-2 months. We recommend that this product is stored tightly sealed in the refrigerator after opening for optimal potency.
We do ship this probiotic out with an ice pack, however, please note, this will be thawed out by the time it reaches you. This is ok! This probiotic is specifically designed to remain stable for short periods of transit time, while not being refrigerated. If you place an order for a refrigerated probiotic on Thursday or Friday, note we may wait to ship your entire order the following Monday to avoid weekend in-transit storage. There may be times where we feel it is safe to ship over the weekend such as in Winter time in the south-eastern half of the country, or if you are located in a large city with a known faster turnaround, or if you are located close to our Noosa location.
