Why We Have Selected these 8 Strains
L. acidophilus & L. bulgaricus – thrive in the gastrointestinal tract; are commonly used in yogurt production; produce their own anti-biotics that help neutralize toxins and kill harmful bacteria. Beneficial in relieving IBS symptoms and diarrhea.
L. rhamnosus & L. casei – stable in stomach acids of the gastrointestinal tract; used in food, dairy and cheese production. Beneficial for anti-viral immunity, respiratory tract infections and reducing flatulent gas and diarrhea.
L. plantarum - stable in stomach acids of the gastrointestinal tract; used to ferment foods and make cheeses. Offers great anti-microbial and anti-bacterial benefits.
B. coagulans (formerly L. sporogenes) – Spores activate in stomach acids, then begin to germinate and proliferate in the intestines. Improves vaginal flora, abdominal pain, IBS bloating and immune response in viral challenges.
B. bifidum & B. breve – One of the major genera of bacteria that make up the colon flora. Assists in the fermentation of Mother’s milk, discouraging the growth of Gram-negative pathogens in infants. May exert a range of beneficial health effects, including inhibition of pathogens and harmful bacteria that colonize and/or infect the gut mucosa, systemic immune responses, repression of procarcinogenic enzymatic activities within the microbiota and the production of vitamins.
FiberSol-2 - Digestion Resistant Maltodextrine
This soluble dietary fiber is a spray-dried powder produced by the pyrolysis and controlled enzymatic hydrolysis of cornstarch. It is considered a digestion resistant maltodextrin, which is readily dispersible in water, then appears crystal clear, carries no inherent flavor and does not thicken. It has very good anti-acid properties and can be cooked in foods, even at high temperatures. Part of Fibersol-2®'s ability to increase pro-biotic levels of bifidobacterium in the large intestine is because a great deal is delivered to that part of the intestinal tract. It escapes digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract and then is metabolized by the friendly intestinal bacteria in the lower tract.
Because of the slower absorption, Fibersol-2® has positive effects on blood glucose levels. It moderates postprandial blood glucose levels and lowers insulin secretion, which could reduce accumulated body fat. Studies also showed a reduction of fat accumulation in internal organs. Concurrent findings indicate that Fibersol-2® improves carbohydrate metabolism, which affects serum cholesterol levels. It lowers total cholesterol by lowering LDL-cholesterol levels without a change in HDL-cholesterol levels. It also lowers serum triglyceride levels in both healthy adults and Type II diabetes patients.
It is FDA approved and GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) rated.

Prebiotic Agave Inulin & FructoOligoSaccharides (FOS) -
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) also sometimes called oligofructose or oligofructan, is a class of oligosaccharides used as an alternative sweetener. Agave FOS Inulin exhibits sweetness levels between 30 and 50 percent of sugar in commercially-prepared syrups. It occurs naturally, and its commercial use emerged in the 1980s in response to consumer demand for healthier and calorie-reduced foods. The term oligosaccharide refers to a short chain of sugar molecules (in the case of FOS, fructose molecules).

Reb-A - Purified Stevia Extract –
Stevia is 100% natural and is derived from the leaf of a plant most commonly found in South America. It has zero calories and provides many healthful benefits. On December of 2008 the FDA declared stevia as safe for use in foods and beverages. The FDA approved stevia at a minimum of 95% Rebaudioside A (Reb A), which is the sweetest compound of the plant. There are seven compounds of the stevia plant. Reb A is the sweetest and purest part of the plant and is the least bitter of the other compounds therein. Reb A Stevia also derives from a natural plant source, the stevia plant.
Stevia leaves have been known to be used in medicines such as antibiotics, muscle relaxers and certain pain relievers as well. Reb A Stevia has been known to reduce the amount of uric acid levels in the body to provide a stable functionality of the digestive system and energy levels. Since it promotes healthy heart health, Reb A Stevia has been proven to increase and strengthen blood flow to the heart by strengthening the muscle contractions of the aorta. Although Reb A Stevia contains sweeteners, it is completely safe for diabetics.
