WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS?
The human body is a walking ecosystem. Ten times more bacterial cells live on your skin and in your GI tract than human cells live in your body.(1) This is your 'microbiome'. It creates thousands of unique molecules affecting your health, both good and bad.
Probiotics—Lactobacilli, Bifidobacteria, and other 'friendly' bacteria—are a natural defense system throughout your GI tract. They keep 'bad' bacteria in check, help digestion, make B and K vitamins, stimulate mucin secretion along the gut lining, turn prebiotic fiber into short chain fatty acids to feed cells lining your colon, and break down bile acids and toxins.
But their health benefits extend far beyond your GI tract, profoundly affecting metabolism, immunity, health, and psychology.*(2, 5-9)
When you don't get enough probiotics, an unbalanced gut microbiome (known as dysbiosis) occurs and can make you ill. Probiotics out-populate harmful bacteria by inhibiting their growth and stealing their food. They do this throughout the entire GI tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines). Also, probiotics make beneficial molecules that you absorb into your body, supporting liver, brain, immune, kidney, and gut function. They enhance mucin production, fight bacterial diarrhea, and raise glutathione level.
Probiotics' genes can do amazing things that the genes in our human cells cannot. Our body makes cholesterol and bile acids, but cannot break them down once their jobs are done. Fortunately for us, probiotics take care of that. Probiotics also break down other toxins that our body is unable to, doing vital detoxification work on our behalf. When we optimize our intake of probiotics, we benefit from the life-saving work they do. They are microscopic in size, but the value of their work is immense.
Emerging research shows a fascinating connection between the gut and the brain. They communicate, in both directions. Your gut microbiome impacts your brain, thoughts, and emotions, and positive effects occur when you optimize your intake of probiotics. Happy thoughts and emotions also affect gut function in a positive way. With probiotic-supported digestive function comes the production of molecules that improve energy level, sharpen focus, and lighten mood. We're now discovering that the body's systems are deeply connected.
In nature, beneficial probiotics covered living plants. Humans got them with every mouthful of raw food they ate. Today, we eat far fewer raw foods. Many other factors also reduce or kill probiotics in our gut: Infection and other illness; aging; overuse of antibiotics; cooked and processed foods; stress; a lack of fiber; too little sleep; alcohol; toxins; chlorinated water; NSAIDs, and other meds.(3)
A loss of probiotics leaves us vulnerable to harmful bacteria that can overrun our gut, creating an unbalanced state known as dysbiosis, which can lead to severe health concerns.(4)
Udo's Super Bifido Plus Probiotic blend for daily use prevents and replaces the loss of Bifidobacteria probiotics and normalizes a disrupted microbiome.
One of our award-winning age-specific formulas, Udo's Super Bifido Plus Probiotic is a medicinal blend of eight human-adapted (aka resident or non-transient), live probiotics. This unique blend provides you with a safe and effective high-potency source of probiotics that naturally live and thrive in the healthy digestive tract of adults.
INGREDIENTS: Bifidobacterium breve HA-129, Bifidobacterium longum HA-135, Bifidobacterium bifidum HA-132, Lactobacillus casei HA-108, Lactobacillus rhamnosus HA-111, Lactobacillus acidophilus HA-122, Lactobacillus plantarum HA-119, Lactobacillus salivarius HA-118.
VIABLE CELL COUNT: Minimum 102 billion viable cells per capsule at time of manufacture; 61 billion at date of expiry.
Take 1-2 capsules, with or after each meal. FOR BEST RESULTS: Mix the contents of 1-2 capsules into foods to guarantee a continuous supply of probiotics, starting in your mouth (cold/warm/not-too-hot-to-eat foods only—temperatures above 140°F/60°C rapidly kill probiotics).
Did you know? You miss out on the benefits of probiotics for your mouth, esophagus, and stomach when you just swallow capsules.
KEEP REFRIGERATED. Probiotics don't 'go bad', per se, but gradually die off over time. Every 24 hours at room temperature, you lose about 1% of the viable cells. Refrigerated, they live 10x longer. To extend shelf life even more, freeze opened or unopened bottles.
Probiotics may help give your immune system a boost and inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Some probiotics have been shown to promote the body's production of natural antibodies. They may also boost IgA-producing cells, T-lymphocytes and natural killer cells.
Probiotics make vitamin B and K in your GI tract. Your cells absorb and use Bs in fat, carb, and protein metabolism. K helps normalize blood clotting function. They, especially Bifidobacteria, make short-chain fatty acids, increasingly important to cells that line your aging large intestine.
Millions of people in North America suffer from chronic indigestion. Consistent probiotic use has been shown to help GI issues, restore and raise gut levels of good bacteria, and benefit your entire microbiome. Which means? They resolve the problems that too few probiotics can cause.
Udo's pioneering work in nutrition started in the 1980s. In the 1990s, we brought the first-ever line of age-specific, high-potency probiotic blends—for toddlers, children, adults, and advanced adults—to the world. Why? The best mix of strains changes over our lifespan; as we age, we need more; and blends outperform single strains. We also make blends for after-meal and oral health, travelers, and more challenging GI tract issues.
All Udo's Choice probiotics contain only human-adapted strains that implant and thrive in the gut lining. They multiply and protect you for far longer and more effectively than transient (non-resident, dairy-derived, etc.) probiotics that pass through you much faster.
We deliver: An independent research group compared ours with four other well-known brands and found that only Udo’s Choice 'viable cell count' (VCC) met label claim.(10)
