Description

Since the state of your health is dependent on the state of your gut, probiotics are an essential part of any health plan.  It’s estimated that 80% of your immune system is located in your gut.  This is where probiotics can have a profound effect … not just on your GI health, but on your overall health as well.*

Here are the key criteria to look for in a good-quality probiotic:

  • Contains 10 strains of beneficial bacteria, one of which is the specific super-strain Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1
  • Shows high potency through independent lab test (70 billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) per 2-capsule serving)
  • Works together with prebiotics (Fructooligosaccharides) for improved probiotic performance*
  • Is stable at room temperature for at least 2 years
  • Is non-dairy, free from soy, corn, wheat, and gluten
  • Helps maintain a healthy flora, promotes digestion, and supports your immune system*
  • Adapts naturally to the human body due to its human origins
  • Is acid- and bile-resistant to naturally survive the stomach and intestinal transit
  • Produces natural enzymes, vitamins, lactic acid, and hydrogen peroxide
  • Utilises nitrogen packaging and is freeze-dried
  • Comes available in vegetable-based capsules

Dr Mercola’s Complete Probiotic meets all of these criteria.  Complete Probiotics contain:

  1. Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS®- 1Supports digestive and immune health, is acid and bile resistant and provides long lasting colonization*
  2. Lactobacillus casei – Supports a healthy immune response as well as aids in stress management by promoting healthy serotonin levels
  3. Lactobacillus plantarum – Helps to ease digestive distress and supports a healthy inflammatory response
  4. Lactobacillus salivarius – Promotes a healthy inflammatory response in the gut as well as immune health. Supports healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range*
  5. Lactobacillus rhamnosus – Can reduce symptoms of gastrointestinal distress, as well as supporting healthy weight and cholesterol levels already in the normal range*
  6. Lactobacillus brevis – Supports healthy inflammatory and immune responses*
  7. Bifidobacterium lactis – Promotes a healthy inflammatory response including allergy response and supports the growth of other beneficial bacteria*
  8. Bifidobacterium longum – Promotes a healthy stress response and may reduce gastrointestinal symptoms*
  9. Bifidobacterium bifidum – Supports healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range and may help alleviate gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea*
  10. Streptococcus thermophilus – Promotes healthy, hydrated skin. Supports immune health. Also stimulates the growth of other probiotic strains*

Prebiotics help keep beneficial bacteria healthy.* They are non-digestible foods that help beneficial bacteria (probiotics) grow and flourish.*

Complete Probiotics has beneficial prebiotics in the form of Fructooligosaccharide (FOS).* FOS is a favorite food for lactobacilli and Bifobacterium strains, as they can efficiently ferment and utilize it for energy.* These prebiotics remain in your digestive system to help boost the growth of beneficial bacteria.*

 

Through testing, some Complete Probiotics strains demonstrated gastrointestinal acid and bile tolerances over 90%.
