"Questions Frequently Asked"

What type of research is behind the Pro-Biotics Plus ® formulas?

Pro-Biotics Plus ® combines the latest research and clinical studies on immunity into one powerful formula. Each ingredient has been independently researched by the most respected names in its field. For example, the probiotics in Pro-Biotics Plus ® were selected after consulting with Dr. Khem Shahani from the University of Nebraska. Dr. Shahani is recognized as the world’s foremost authority on beneficial bacteria supplementation and is a pioneer in the discovery of DDS-1 Acidophilus. Pro-Biotics Plus ® is a formula you can trust because its ingredients are clinically tested and proven

I heard that you should not take immune boosters daily. Is this true?

This is not true for Pro-Biotics Plus® formulas. Products that contain herbs such as Goldenseal and Echinacea should not be used over long periods of time because they are not supportive of the immune system but rather force it to react, potentially causing an imbalance and over activity. Pro-Biotics Plus ® contains none of these herbs and can safely be taken every day.

Can I give Pro-Biotics Plus ® capsules to my children?

Yes, this formula is safe for most people. For children less than 8 years of age use half the recommended adult dose. Check with a pediatrician before giving to a child 3 years or younger. , in contrast, are the beneficial, or friendly, bacteria themselves. By acting as a food source, prebiotics give the probiotic bacteria a chance to exert their influence. These friendly bacteria may have several health benefits, from aiding digesting to boosting immunity. ProBiotics Plus 12 has many different probiotics so they can implant in the intestinal tract in many different levels. One must take in more probiotics because stress, a poor diet, certain medical conditions, medications and other factors may decrease the number of healthy bacteria. Eating a diet that includes prebiotics and probiotics and taking ProBiotics Plus 12 everyday can help restore these friendly bacteria.

Why should I take this formula with a meal?

Probiotics implant much better when they travel with food. It gives them more opportunity to jump off the train, so to speak, and set up camp. Also, all the other nutrients will absorb better when they go through the intestinal tract slower

What should I look for in a good probiotic supplement?

It is good to look for one that is high in CFU's and more than one or two strains. What is a CFU? CFU or Colony Forming Units - A unit of measurement used in microbiology that indicates the number of microorganisms present. Think of them like seeds that you are going to use to plant a garden. It is also a measure of how many bacteria (and yeast, because there are probiotic yeasts) 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.

Should I take a multi strain or single strain probiotic.

A multi strain duplicates the natural process of eating probiotics in your food where you take in a variety of lactic acid bacteria. So for general good health, a multi strain probiotic that has at least both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species is best. NWC Naturals® Pro-Biotics Plus® 12 stick packs has 12 different live stabilized strains.

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."

If you are pregnant or nursing, consult with your doctor before taking probiotic supplements. If you want to use probiotics and have a medical condition, make sure you tell your physician. Also talk to your doctor before taking probiotics if you are elderly or if you have a medical condition that significantly compromises your immune system (e.g., HIV, AIDS, organ transplant, kidney or liver disease).

Awareness of the health promoting probiotics took a huge turn in the 20th century and have been gaining in popularity every since. Pro-Biotics Plus® formulas are now available in easy to take capsules or chewable tablets. Adding probiotics supplements to your diet will help promote a healthy intestinal environment and help support our immune system.
