Why choose ProbotiX® Daily 5 Live?
Winner of Best New Product from True Health Magazine, ProbotiX® Daily 5 Live capsules provide 5 billion live bacteria as a combination of 5 different strains. It is a great live bacteria supplement for those wanting to support everyday health.
Unlike other cheaper alternatives, the strains included have been specifically selected for the amount of research conducted. By guaranteeing that the live bacteria can survive stomach acidity, you can be sure that they will reach the stomach in sufficient quantities to be efficacious. As it can be taken from the age of 6 months and doesn't need to be refrigerated, it's an easy way to support the whole family in particular when travelling.
How are bacteria classified?
Bacteria names include their genus, species and strains. Using the example of Lactobacillus acidophilus LMG8151, the bacteria genus is Lactobacillus, the species is acidophilus and the strain is LMG8151. It is important to understand this as not all probiotics are created equal, and some strains may have little research compared to others. Therefore when choosing a live bacteria supplement you should choose one that includes strains that have been studied and can be guaranteed to survive the acidic conditions of the stomach.
Which live bacteria strains are included?
We have selected 5 different strains for this product, with two strains of bacteria from the genus Bifidobacteria and three strains from the genus Lactobacilli, including:
Bifidobacterium animalis ssp lactis LMG 18314
Bifidobacterium infantis LMG 25627
Lactobacillus acidophilus LMG 8151
Lactobacillus plantarum LMG 26654
Lactobacillus rhamnosus LMG 25626
What's the difference between Time of Expiry vs Time of Manufacture guarantees?
As bacteria are living organisms it is the nature of every live bacteria supplement that as the product ages, some of the bacteria will die. Some live bacteria supplements advertise the number of bacteria present at the date of manufacture which does not guarantee that as time passes, the same amount will be present when the product is actually taken. ProbotiX® Daily 5 Live offers a guarantee that at least 5 billion live bacteria will be contained in each capsule up until the date of expiry as given on the label of each of the products.
