New Chapter Organics® Probiotic All-Flora® -- 60 Vegetarian Capsules

Live Probiotics for Optimal Digestive & Immune System Function. Nine Live Probiotic Strains Delivered in Whole-Food Media. Apples & Jerusalem Artichoke Inulin Provide Prebiotic Nourishment to Enhance Probiotic Benefits. Non-Dairy Base. 100% Vegetarian. Naturally Gluten Free. Probiotics with a Purpose™. Probiotic All-Flora contains nine strains of live probiotics cultured together on a non-dairy whole-food medium and then combined with growth-stimulating prebiotic Organic Apples and Organic Inulin sourced from Organic Jerusalem Artichokes.  . The live probiotics in Probiotic All-Flora including revered probiotic strains such as Lactobacillus acidophilus Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus helveticus help support optimal digestive and immune system function.  . When the culturing of Probiotic All-Flora is complete the synbiotic-rich whole-food medium and live probiotics are freeze-dried together a process that preserves their potency until consumed. Once consumed the cultured whole-food medium and prebiotic whole foods activate the probiotics and enhance their effects. Both are part of the synergistic whole that benefits the entire digestive tract and immune system.  . The Medium is the Message! Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that occur naturally in the human intestinal tract. Foods "cultured" with beneficial strains of probiotics such as yogurt and kefir have been used throughout history to improve overall health and vitality and today there are many studies reinforcing their ability to balance and promote digestive health. Probiotics also play an important role in modulating the immune system 70% of which is located in the gut.  . To make a probiotic supplement selected strains of beneficial bacteria must first be cultured on a food medium such as milk or soy. Since each strain of probiotics has an affinity for a different part of the digestive tract and a unique mechanism of action a product that delivers multiple strains is preferable to single strain products. As the probiotics replicate they biotransform the food medium breaking down nutrients and making them more bioavailable while secreting beneficial compounds into the medium called "synbiotics." Research suggests that synbiotics are largely responsible for the benefits of probiotics. In other words "the medium is the message."  . Most probiotic supplement manufacturers separate the probiotics from their food medium once the desired number of cultures is achieved and therefore fail to deliver the full range of health benefits associated with eating probiotic foods. New Chapter's Probiotics with a Purpose™ line however uniquely offers multispecies blends of live probiotics with the synbiotic-rich organic growth medium intact.

"Saw improvement after first two days of use, then nothing, although bottle was kept in refrigerator as recommended. Complained to the manufacturer who replied that product should deteriorate 1% daily after opening. Methinks it didn't hold up after opening. Have continued using it and see no improvement in bowel movements."
