What are probiotics?
Widely believed to provide numerous benefits for your digestive system, probiotics are live “good,” or helpful bacteria that help maintain the natural balance of microflora in your GI tract.*
What is the connection between fermentation and probiotics?
Fermentation can increase the shelf life of food, make some foods more digestible and lead to probiotic rich substances. It is the process of a microorganism, like bacteria or yeast, breaking down a substance.
How many active and viable microorganisms are in Probiotics-10?
There are 10 billion CFUs from 10 different probiotic strains at the time of manufacture, maintaining the benefits of probiotic activity through the shelf life.
How do I store Probiotics-10?
Refrigeration is not necessary, but will help ensure maximum shelf life. Do not expose to excessive heat, humidity or direct sunlight.
How do the bacteria live in Probiotics-10? Is there any food for them inside?
The bacteria are in a state of suspended animation – temporary stoppage of a bodily function – and dry enough that all biological processes are in a resting state. Once consumed, they rehydrate and biological processes including growth and reproduction resume. Because of this, a food source in the tablet is not necessary.
Who should take Probiotics-10?
Adults who want to support their digestive and immune health.*
What products complement Probiotics-10?

How should I take this dietary supplement?
Prior to the first meal of the day, take one (1) tablet; or take as directed by your healthcare provider.
Are there any allergens in this product?
Probiotics-10 contains trace amounts of milk from the fermentation process. This product is suitable for individuals following lactose-restricted and lactose-free diets.
How does Probiotics-10 affect digestion?
There are many components that affect optimal digestive health, such as digestive enzymes, pH conditions, bile from the gall bladder, intestinal microflora, probiotics and some digestive properties contained in consumed food. In addition to diet, supplementing your intestines with probiotics can help support healthy digestion by balancing intestinal microflora in the body.*
Can I just eat some yogurt and get the same benefits?
Yogurt – and other fermented food – is an excellent source of probiotics with the potential to benefit health. With yogurt, the number of helpful and active microflora/bacteria may not compare to the amount found in a probiotic supplement like Probiotics-10. Yogurt can also contain a lot of added sugar, and may not be a practical option for those who cannot tolerate dairy or simply have an aversion to it. Probiotics-10’s carefully crafted formula contains probiotic strains chosen specifically to promote your health, based on science.*
