In its normal state‚ your digestive tract contains about 400 types of beneficial bacteria—or probiotics—that reduce the numbers of harmful bacteria in your body. A healthy population of probiotic bacteria helps prevent stomach discomfort‚ bloating‚ gas‚ and diarrhea. Beneficial bacteria may also prevent infections in your digestive and urinary tracts.
Probiotic Supreme™ by Designs for Health delivers 15 billion probiotic organisms per dose. This high-dose supplement uses a patented delivery system to ensure as many of these live organisms as possible are introduced to your digestive tract. A probiotic supplement may help if you’re taking any antibiotics‚ since antibiotic regimens typically wipe out your body's natural population of beneficial bacteria (in addition to the bad ones it fights).
Probiotics may also alleviate irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)‚ colon problems‚ and mild skin issues. If you have an allergy or aversion to foods such as dairy products (especially yogurt) that are natural sources of probiotics‚ you may want to take Probiotic Supreme to help regulate the balance of bacteria in your digestive tract.
Each Probiotic Supreme caplet provides two main forms of good bacteria that are supposed to exist naturally in the digestive tract:
- L. acidophilus‚ which is often used as a probiotic to promote digestive health
- B. bifidum‚ which is a strain of healthy bacteria that is normally present in the gut
The active probiotic blend contains beneficial bacteria that‚ under normal circumstances‚ exist naturally in your digestive tract.
This 60-caplet bottle of Designs for Health’s Probiotic Supreme™ should last for approximately two months. The recommended dosage is one capsule daily with meals‚ unless otherwise directed by your health care provider.
Since this supplement contains live probiotics‚ keep this bottle refrigerated and don’t expose it to heat‚ humidity‚ or direct sunlight. If Probiotic Supreme™ is exposed to heat or used beyond the recommended expiration date‚ the live cultures may not be as potent and beneficial as intended.
