Quick Overview

    Product Description

    What Is It?
    Each capsule of Probiotic-5 (dairy-free) provides 10 billion CFU of 5 beneficial bacteria strains Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis. This formula combines lactobacilli and bifidobacteria to promote gastrointestinal (GI) tract health and comfort, immune cell function and overall health.*

    Uses For Probiotic-5 (dairy-free)

    G.I. Health and Comfort: L. acidophilus and B. longum have been shown to promote healthy cytokine production in the colon and maintain healthy GI barrier function, in part by supporting the mucosal lining of the GI tract. Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora, support healthy yeast balance, and promote GI comfort. A study involving elderly individuals indicated that a mixture of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria maintained healthy gut ecology.*

    Immune Cell Function: Studies suggest that probiotics support immune health, enhancing B cell, T cell and NK cell function. A randomized, double blind, placebocontrolled intervention study involving 479 adults suggests that B. longum and B. bifidum promotes overall health and T cell function. Another randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 25 elderly volunteers suggests that B. lactis encourages immune function by enhancing phagocytic capacity and activity.*

    What Is The Source?
    Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1 strain), Lactobacillus rhamnosus (Lr-32 strain), Bifidobacterium bifidum (Bb-02 strain), Bifidobacterium longum (Bl-05 strain), and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04 strain) are dairy-free strains, but may contain small amounts of residual soy peptides. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.

    Pure Encapsulations recommends 1-2 capsules per day, in divided doses.

    Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
    Probiotics may result in mild flatulence, which should subside with continued use. They may be contraindicated for use with immunocompromised individuals. If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product.

    Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?

    The most helpful favorable review

    Acidophillus and other probiotics need to be fresh, hence the ones you buy over the counter, are not the best. Probiotic-5 arrived quickly, perfect packaging that preserves the right temperature. Quality product that delivers a perfect blend, great for your stomach too.
