- High–strength, five-strain blend of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria
- Provides 10 billion CFU per convenient once-daily capsule
Each capsule of Probiotic-5 provides 10 billion CFU of five beneficial bacteria strains: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis. This formula combines lactobacilli and bifidobacteria to promote gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract health. L. acidophilus and B. longum maintain healthy G.I. barrier function, in part by supporting the mucosal lining of the G.I. tract. Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora and maintain gastrointestinal comfort. A study involving elderly individuals indicated that a mixture of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria maintained healthy gut ecology.
