Probiotics temporarily modify gut flora, while prebiotics stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria (such as lactobacilli and bifidobateria) in the intestines and gut lining.
Our research in this category leads us to conclude that you do not need a large number in order to rapidly grow and enhance your gut micro-flora. The difference between 6 billion and 100 billion is insignificant when we are dealing with micro-flora numbering in the trillions. There are 2 main concerns; keeping the bacteria active in the capsule and allowing the bacteria to begin multiplying rapidly, once it gets into the gut.
The probiotic bacteria tend to die very fast unless kept in a freezer. Refrigeration helps, but not enough. One method of improving survivability is to pack the bacteria intimately with prebiotics (bacteria food). This is done by thoroughly mixing both to achieve intimate contact. This is what we do in the development of our Bioactive Acidophilus.
When probiotics and prebiotics are combined, they form a symbiotic relationship; by combining a sufficient amount of prebiotics with the probiotic; there is enough food to allow the probiotic bacteria to survive better in the capsule without refrigeration and allows the product to begin multiplying rapidly once it gets in the gut.
We packed the capsule with the most well-researched prebiotics, inulin, maltodextrin, FOS and pectin.

Heartburn? Did you know that taking acid blockers may contribute to a compromised intestinal environment, in which the gut microbiome is not allowed to flourish.
