Why do some probiotics need to be refrigerated and
others not? Probiotics are live cultures and are generally
unstable at temperatures over 75 degrees. HOWEVER, the temperature inside the
body is well over 75 degrees, not to mention that the probiotics would have to
pass through hostile stomach acid and bile to get to the intestine. So what is
the answer? The answer is to buy a probiotic supplement that contains
stabilized strains of bacteria. The fact is, a probiotic that
requires refrigeration is a red flag
that it is not stable and will die on impact with the body. Make
sure you read the label of any probiotics to be sure that the probiotics are
stabilized. Also be sure that your probiotic contains prebiotics such as FOS,
thus being a symbiotic formula. Our ProBioticformulas have it all.
ProBiotics Plus enzymes with
prebiotics can help in restoring the balance of intestinal micro flora that is
so important to a healthy immune system and overall good health.
Just a small preview from the book
"The Wonder of
Probiotics Side Effects and Precautions:
"Because everyone can benefit from probiotics, we thought we
would include the precautionary information in this chapter. Generally,
probiotics are very safe and can be used by most
adults and children without causing any significant discomfort or problems. The
most common side effects are constipation and flatulence, which typically
disappear within a few days as the gut adjusts to the introduction of friendly
bacteria and the rebalancing of the bacterial flora. These temporary symptoms
are akin to the dust you kick up when you do spring cleaning: once the dust
settles, you have a cleaner, more organized house. In rare cases, people are
hypersensitive to some component(s) of a probiotic supplement. Make sure you
read the label carefully before you take any probiotic supplement and look for
those that have the fewest (or no) additives."

We did a comparison chart so you can see really
what you are buying. Our products are the highest quality so you can feel
confident you are getting the best.
Make a wise choice check the labels. Not
all probiotics are alike. Many cheap probiotics are unstable and lose their
beneficial properties in the stomach before the probiotics can reach the
intestine. The intestine is where the probiotics need to implant in order to
seed your intestinal tract with healthy flora.
Don't take any probiotic if you can not find out what strain
of bacteria are in them. Many manufacturers of both yogurt and supplements
claim that this information is "commercially sensitive". Why should consumers
buy and take something if they don't know if it contains the particular strain
or the cfu's they want ? Also we found most web sites do not have label
information do not buy probiotics if you do not know what you are getting.
We do not use any Yeasts in our probiotic products. Their are
many Companies that do include yeasts in their formula and they even tell you
on their label not to take it if you are allergic to yeasts. Look for yeasts on
your labels such as Saccharomyces Boulardii .
What should I look for in a good
It is good to look for one that is high in cfu's and
more than one strain. What is CFUs? CFU or Colony Forming Units - A unit of
measurement used in microbiology that indicates the number of microorganisms
present . It is a measure of how many bacteria (and yeast, because there are
probiotic yeast) are able to divide and form colonies. It might be easier, to
think of colony forming units as being a single bacterium. If the probiotic
bacteria are capable of dividing and forming colonies then that is proof that
they are alive and healthy.
How many cfu's do I need.
For general good health, most experts recommend between
10 to 40 billion cfu each day. For a specific minor health problem a dose of
around 20 to 40 billion is often used. Take the dose suggested on the bottle or
by your personal health professional. NWC Naturals® Pro-biotics Plus® stick packs with enzymes and
prebiotics, has 40 Billion CFUs per stick pack.
