Multi-Probiotic® 40 Billion contains 16 beneficial strains of Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Streptococcus cultures, including the clinically researched Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 that supports gastrointestinal and immune function. Also included in the synbiotic blend is scFOS® prebiotic fiber, which is well tolerated and works synergistically with probiotics to flourish in the intestinal tract.These probiotics are resistant to both acid and bile and undergo a patented cryoprotectant stabilization process for shelf stability.

The microbiota of the human gastrointestinal tract plays a key role in nutrition and health. A delicate balance
exists between the human intestinal microflora and its host. Upset of this community structure may promote
undesirable conditions. Many different environmental factors may affect the gut microbial ecology; these
include diet, medication, stress, age and general living conditions. It is therefore important that gut microflora
interactions be optimized with probiotics and prebiotics.
Probiotics are supplemental live, beneficial intestinal micro-organisms for gastrointestinal health and immune
support. † Probiotics have been shown to exert a beneficial support through modification of the immune
system host via the gut environment. Clinical trials also suggest that the exposure to healthy microbes through
the gastrointestinal tract powerfully shapes immune function.† Multiple studies have indicated that multi-strain
probiotic blends with lactobacilli, bifidobacteria, and streptococcus can provide optimal support for a diverse
range of health needs.†
Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 is featured in Multi-Probiotic and has been clinically shown in research to support
the immune system by supporting the function of leucocytes in adults and the elderly.† It may also provide
fetal immune support when consumed by pregnant mothers, according to one study. Clinical research also
shows increased proportions of bifidobacterium and lactobacillus microflora in the human digestive tract after
intake of B. lactis HN019. This strain may also help in the maintenance of bowel regularity and normal GI
scFOS, also called short chain fructooligosaccharides, are prebiotics that have short molecular chains. They
function as non-digestible fiber that can positively affect selected groups of beneficial intestinal microflora,
such as lactobacillus. While probiotics merely add beneficial microflora, prebiotics influence the intestinal
environment so that beneficial colonies of microflora can flourish. By aiding the beneficial microflora’s survival,
less desirable microflora can have a decreased chance of survival.
Multi-Probiotic 40 Billion is indicated for individuals that want high potency probiotics to support the intestinal
tract for healthy immune and digestive function. †
