The human gut contains trillions of bacteria, comprising over 400 species. The majority are beneficial but some can adversely effect the body’s own defenses. You are exposed every day to hostile bacteria through food and drink. To counterbalance these invaders, you need to ensure a healthy level of “beneficial” bacteria. The healthy level of good bacteria in the gut can be reduced by factors such as poor diet, antibiotics, foreign travel, stress, aging, and infection. A convenient way of maintaining the healthy balance in the gut is to use a probiotic.
Probiotics were first scientifically identified as being helpful by Dr. Metchnikoff, a Nobel Prize winner working at the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1907. BioKult, an advanced broad spectrum probiotic, was developed by a team of doctors, nutritionists, and scientists.
BioKult contains 14 strains of beneficial bacteria including Bacillus subtilis, a catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. This bacteria is able to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. BioKult also contains L. Acidophilus, L. Casei, L. Delbruekii.bulgaricus, L. Delbruekii.lactis, L. Helveticus, L. Plantarum, L. Rhamnosus, L. Salivarius, B. Breve, B. Bifidum, B. Infantis, B. Longum, and S. Thermophilus in a maltodextrin base. This product also contains silica and magnesium stearate in a vegetable capsule (200 mg capsule).
There is a minimum of 10 billion grams of probiotic organisms per one gram. Allergen statements: Contains traces of soya. Contains traces of milk product at a level which would not affect lactose intolerance sufferers. For more information on the use of BioKult in autism, click here.

General Use One to two capsules twice daily with food. If taking two or more capsules daily, divide daily dose in two.
